TGWPGWAS is a short story written on LiveJournal by squid314 about a world where there exists a "telluric field" which mysteriously limits technological potential. The protagonist, a happy-go-lucky sociopath, gets pricked by experimental drugs that give her immortality. After a few centuries of playing the part of her own "daughters" she decides to study the field, in spite of the astoundingly high mortality rate in the tellurological professions.

- Stable Time Loop: All of the "accidents" and the field are just a big "prank" pulled by the protagonist's future self.
