world disasters

Thranduil: So, whose plan was it to send my son and a bunch of other kids to destroy the One Ring in Mordor?


Thranduil: Let me guess, is it the same genius who send a bunch of dwarves and a hobbit to kill a dragon and reclaim a mountain?

Gandalf: …

Thranduil: Or is it the one who couldn’t manage to kick one mortal guy’s ass and led whole world to disaster?

Elrond: …

Thranduil: I guess it’s way too stupid to only one of you to come up with. You must have collaborated.

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?

I swear I tried to animate this but I was laughing so hard when it was done I couldn’t bring myself to post it.

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.

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 together.”

“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 scavenge.”

“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 out here.”

“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 contaminated there.”

“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.
