It needs to be canon in superhero universes that schools and colleges have stopped caring about world ending disasters. Like yeah the avengers tore up Manhattan but you’ve known about this assignment for weeks so it still needs to be in on time. The internet is down cause joker decided to pull a massive heist? Oh to bad, that online discussion board post needs to be up. Like obviously if you’re in the hospital or there’s a family emergency cause of it you’ll get some slack but you’re gonna have to jump through so many hoops that it’s better to just abandon that loved one to make it in time for the biology final. You’re dorm or apartment burned down in the crossfire of loki and iron man? Guess who’s sleeping at their friend’s house or in the commuter lounge?
You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world.
Am I the only person who is super desperate for an apocalypse? Like honestly I want to watch society collapse and to actually experience it. I want all of today’s bullshit to not matter anymore and the only thing that matters to be survival. Whether it be a zombie apocalypse or not.
Prompts for disaster, apocalypse, post-apocalypse, end of the world, end of something type stories.
I thought it was the end. Now I wish it had been.
Nothing feels quite as surreal as walking down the barren
and silent streets of an abandoned New York City.
“Everything is gone. Everything we worked so hard for is
just rubble and dust…”
“We don’t have enough supplies to last through the winter.
Someone is going to have to go out.”
“We’re doing the best we can! In case you haven’t noticed,
the worlds a bit fucked up at the moment.”
“I’m sorry. Let me just tell the zombie you aren’t ready
yet. I’m sure he’ll understand and wait to attack till you get your shit
“You can’t just evacuate a massive city like that without a
plan and sufficient time. They never had a chance.”
“This is not the time to be taking selfies! We’re being
fucking attacked by the undead!”
“The governments of the world are at a loss. No one was
prepared for this.”
“We’re on our own from here on out. “
“We can go into the city tomorrow and see what we can
“The whole world is falling apart. Literally.”
“Zone four is
completely unreachable now. We have no choice.”
“Europe’s been quiet for over a month now. I think it’s
probably safe to say they’re gone or at the very least, in no shape to be any help.”
“They didn’t make it out in time….”
“Our ancestors nearly destroyed the world. I don’t see why
we shouldn’t just finish the job.”
“Things are different now. If we don’t adapt, we WILL die
“Those pretty ideals were nice when we weren’t fighting just
to survive every day. Now, such ideals will get us killed.”
“We should check farther upstream. The water might not be as
“If I had known the fucking apocalypse was going to happen,
I would have paid a lot more attention in science class.”
“It’s busted…..just like everything else.”
“You should call your families…..”
“This may be your last chance to talk to them. Go.”
What I remember most from that day was the dozens of phones
ringing one after the other, the screams and sobs, the frantic prayers to every
God I’d ever heard of echoing off the walls, and the knot of dread within my
chest. I thought that was the end.
