On your 28th birthday, 51% voted "No". Let's see what happens.

This is really interesting! Are "you" your brain, or something nebulous outside of it, dare I say a "soul"? Or are "you" simply a confederation of parts?

Also, have you read the short story "The Body Politic" by Clive Barker?

The story is describing Upper and Lower forests. Several kids are exploring the forest. Anyone who looked up from lower forest grew dizzy. When the children found something in the forest it was an amazing sight. Most parents got worried when the kids went to the forest because they thought it was dangerous.

I have not read the Body Politic. Is it available online in front of a paywall rather than behind one?

You are your consciousness, which is a reflection of your self, which is a reflection of the electrical feedback of your brain. So yeah i guess you're the brain.

EDIT: i watched this video and it is horrifying.

in my story idea it's each of the trillions of cells rather than the body parts.

What's your Emergence Scene? - Paramedics in charge of saving lives from Eldritch beings emerging in your world.

Apart from Complex - Different people are trying to remove organs from each other for different reasons. (Ex: One of them is looking for a willing volunteer for an organ transplant. Another is a cultist trying to find a good sacrifice. Yet another just wants to make some quick cash on the black market. Etc.)

Drink Your Death Out - In the afterlife, You work at a drink shop as a "demon vanquisher" which is just another way of saying that you kill dead pests and clean up ghost-mold in storage. Everything was going dandy until the supplier sent you a mysterious unlabeled bottle filled with a liquid you've never seen before. Naturally, you drank the heck out of it and now you're paying the consequences.

Untopia - It's a utopia for dead people. What more can you want?

Pink Fold - Any origami you fold turns pink. This baffles the beings currently observing you and your reality. The universe isn't supposed to bestow unexplainable powers to mortals no matter how minor and they're looking to fix this problem. This may or may not erase your existence.

It's Offishal - You are an office fish. Your best friend is an accountant.

The NeverEnding Quest - A classical text adventure.

You own a restaurant called "Share Burger" where customers can only order food they are sharing with another customer.

OR

You've entered a restaurant called "Share Burger" and must find a stranger to eat a meal with.

Street signs are actually magical glyphs with strange powers, and the layout of roads is all part of a secret conspiracy to perform a dark ritual.

this, except this is on an alien spaceport that you're visiting so everyone is a different species and therefore, speaks a different language. this is the only food joint on the huge construct and you're fucking hungry as hell so you gotta hunker down and eat some space burgs with a goddamn alien.

You have to defend AND prosecute it.

Also, failing at either will get you in huge trouble.
