Felt like chattering about them, but these kids are from an older story I wrote called Phoebus and Andromede!
Phoebus (the one on the right) wakes up one day inside a mysterious mechanism that housed his body from the outside world;
He must’ve been asleep for years. It felt like he had just woken up from a comatose.
Upon exiting his sleeping capsule, he finds everything, everything taken over by plant life… And no sign of conscious, human life. After a few minutes of wandering around, Phoebus finds another capsule, another sleeping human inside. He stumbles a into a few more, and Phoebus cannot explain why these people are in such a state. He doesn’t know anything, except he can mysteriously operate the complex sleeping pods. He has no memories prior to waking up. He wonders if the sleeping people are dead.
Phoebus starts feeling a terrible dread, helplessness and loneliness until a person with a mechanical voice neared him. “I’ve been waiting for you!”
It approached Phoebus, and it’s eyes were black, absent of it’s sclera. (it wasn’t a human. It was a robot, an android.) It was familiar with Phoebus, and spoke as though it were human, it almost convinced Phoebus.
The android introduces itself as Andromede, and it informs Phoebus that he is the last, conscious being of his kind. Everyone else was in deep, deep, suspended animation.
Phoebus sets out, and Andromede tags along, taken to wander around their near post-apocalyptic world, exploring miles and miles of forests, caves filled with minerals and oceans glimmering with bio-luminescent life forms, and transporters that still seemed to work, functioning as small wormholes that allowed Phoebus and Andromede to quickly explore their small, lonely, sleepy world.
Phoebus ruminates on why everyone else was dormant underground, still alive, but asleep in a strange sickness for decades and decades, Andromede providing him with no answers, only asking him, again and again if he knew who it’s creator was.
Captialists: I’m not gonna pay for people to eat, they need to pay for that with their own money they get from working.
Captalists: all the jobs are going overseas because we pay people too much here. Just because you have a job doesn’t mean you should expect to get paid. You need to gain experience and get educated if you want a better job.
Capitalists: but we’re not gonna pay for your education. So if it’s too much for you, you’re just shit out of luck, or you could take out loans.
Capitalists: why don’t we have enough educated people to do these jobs? now we have to import people to be scientists and engineers, it’s embarassing. Also why is unemployment so high. Too many freeloaders in this damn country. Let’s cut food stamps again. You don’t work, you don’t eat. Maybe that’ll light a fire under their asses.
I had a Realization…. why on earth is Bodhi the awkward scandalized one in rebelcaptain fic,,,, like,,,, out of the three of the Bodhi is the one who’s been in a relationship before (or something, based on the novelization) and rebelcaptain are the awkward ones… like neither of them have had friends before do you really think they were in romantic relationships….. you know 100% snarky mcsnarkpants would be the one teasing the crap out of rebelcaptain as much as the others do, maybe even more… especially when you consider his Academy days he probably had a #squad of friends to joke around with… so….
okay so one thing though, why do teen dramas have literally no fucking chill on ships?? like have y’all ever heard of a slow burn? i mean re: this bughead storyline i love it but like it should have have built up over an entire season, not like 3 episodes. like jesus, twilight had better pacing than that!!
