Frozen Earth Friday

Post by DoctorBanzai » Tue Nov 19, 2013 11:14 pm

There hasn’t been any sun for longer than we could remember. Without sun, the desire to track days had slowly diminished until no-en was even remotely interested. For a time there were some who scratched in the walls, the scars now faded and unreadable.

As we moved, this too was eventually forgotten. We had become nomadic, migrating between the known and the unknown. Sometimes we would come back, others we would not.

Snow filled the streets and covered the relics of our long destroyed society. Those of us who froze in the night were often revered as the lucky ones.

Probably my favorite of the series so far. I really dig the atmosphere, Dr. B.

Thanks Varda. I think it's my favorite, too. I enjoyed writing this one the most.

So atmospheric, so depressing. I love it.

I'm trying to figure out whether this is an intentional pun implying that the atmosphere has frozen solid.
