So what options for survival are left? a) Space - they would have to find a spaceship with fuel somewhere. Not very good plot, but possible. They would also have to find food and water for crew for long enough time (5 years?). b) They find a shelter on Earth. The problem of food and water remains same. Only possibility is shelter for few, rest in some form of cryo sleep c) They find 4% of surface not hit by radiation and live from it. Problem: how do you transport several thousand people there?

None of these options is good. Nightblood will not save them - the problem with food and water remains. So - what are your ideas?

All of them. There is no good solution. Every plan is bad. They’re going to have to cobble a solution together using bits and pieces of every solution to make it work. 

They’re still dropping hints about what solution might be out there. None of it has come clear yet. We still haven’t found what we need to find, but they’re leading us there, so I’m sure we’ll be discovering more. It seems as if the first apocalypse is a lot more linked to the second apocalypse than anyone first realized. The stories are coming together. They’re going to need the the solutions from the first time to get them through this one.

Separation of a highly fluorescent anthranilic acid derivative from the reaction mixture.

The upper organic layer dissolved almost completely my compound from the reaction mixture and could be separated in one step. A good point was that the compound had a really strong fluorescence and if I placed an UV lamp next to the separation funnel it was easily observed that the water phase contained almost none of the title compound. 

One day someone will walk into your life and get it right where everyone else got it wrong. One day you won’t have to wait for a call or a text back. One day you won’t be the only one giving your all. One day you’ll finally meet someone who wants to help you grow in life. One day you’ll finally meet someone who isn’t afraid to give “love” another chance. One day you’ll finally meet someone you can trust with everything. One day you’ll have your best friend, your biggest supporter and your teammate all wrapped up into one person.

I kissed a boy once whose father still pulls his mother’s hair off her neck and trails kisses down the side of her shoulder in the morning sunlight after 25 years

and he grew up excited to snake his fingers between mine, slide his grandmothers ring on my knuckle and echo promises of always

but I was never 8 years old and pretending to be grossed out by my parents kissing by the television the way he was, no I was 8 years old and learning to play music in my mind in my dark bedroom when I could hear my parents fighting.

love doesn’t look that bad from the outside, from far away. But to me, the only up close I’ve ever had with love is “why don’t you ever listen to me?” and “god, you’re impossible to be around” and sorry if these words have left me cynical but I can’t promise you always when I’ve seen the slow burn that love can suffer.

I showed you where I was weakest and you chose to strike there.
