Once he starts the game he expands his room so he can place a machine which created a mysterious apple, while a large meteor falls toward his house. He bites the apple, transporting him to the Medium.
John wakes up only to see everything around him has been destroyed. John also notices that his father is missing and some Imps stole him. The imps mess up John's room which angered John to kill them all. Soon bigger imps known as ogres started attacking John. John joins his friend Rose Lalonde game session and they both take down All the ogres. Before this happened Rose's Internet crashed making her unable to join John. John called Dave Strider for help but Dave just rapped nonstop. It is also revealed that John pranked Dave into drinking his pee
In this act John's Nanna, NannaSprite, helps John by getting rid of some ogres and imps. Nannasprite bakes some cookies for John as well. Whenever John seems to get weakened Nannasprite puts him to full health. John also tries to get presents for Jade Harley, Dave Strider, and Rose Lalonde since there birthdays were on the same day.
John meets a troll named Terezi who told John to enter a portal called a second gate. Terezi did not tell John that the second gate will have a strong enemy in it. So when John would go into the second gate he did not know what he was in for. Luckily though before he went into the second gate Dave Strider went back in time to make sure John didn't die. When Dave went back in time he told John not to listen to Terezi unless he wanted to be killed. John didn't listen to him and went into the second gate. Surprisingly it only led to him crashing into Roses house. Even though John made a loud enterance Rose did not wake up. John snuck into Roses computer and pretended to be Rose when texting to a troll named Kanaya Maryam, who had contacted Rose at the moment. John also meets two other trolls which were Karkat Vantas and Vriska Serket. John became good friends with Vriska and didn't know what to think about Karkat. While John was sleeping so was his dream self. Because his dream self didn't wake up he had no idea that he was underattack by Jack Noir.
