A young woman with aspirations to be a great pianist is forced to confront her deepest fears – ones that, after a ride on the Lift, become more real than she had ever imagined.

A wealthy adrenaline junkie is carrying around a heavy burden about the friends he left for death on the side of the mountain – a guilt he’s decided he can no longer live with. Victoria grants him a chance to take another look at those events that might give him a different perspective.
It’s Christmas, and Victoria finds a strange visitor in her building – one she wasn’t expecting, but one who arrives to fill a promise from very long ago. Spend Christmas with Victoria as she is presented with a puzzle, an opportunity (in the form of a very difficult choice), and gets a very special surprise. But is the offer too good to be true?
Victoria begins to question not only her existence but her purpose. Fortunately for her, there is someone else who can not only sympathize, but can help guide her through this particularly rough time in her unlife. In this first ever crossover, the worlds of The Lift and The Wicked Library collide in a surprisingly uplifting episode about choices. This episode is simulcast as episode 707 of The Wicked Library. The version found on The Wicked Library also includes an interview with the author.
