It's the end of the world as we know it...


Fictionally speaking, of course.

I've been kicking around an idea for a story.  I've  finally got to the the point where I'm putting some initial work up on the wiki.  This particular story takes place in the very near future.  Through a series of coordinated events, America has been attacked, and civilization as we know it has crumbled.  This isn't some doom and gloom story, nor is it a story about the end of the world.  This is a story about a few people who are caught up in the end of the world.  If you have seen Jericho, it is a similar feel.  We don't know what caused the end of the world, only that it has taken place.

Anyway, if you'd like to participate, you can do so here.


I've written a few things and posted them to the wiki, much of which I'm not very happy with, but it is a good starting point.  One area I'd particularly like help with is the 'tid bits'.  While I never come right out and say what causes the end of the world, I do need to describe what happened to this group of people during the end of the world.  So what did it look like to them?  Sometimes we think that the end of the world will be broadcast right into our living rooms on the evening news.  But that is assuming that our satellites, power, and several other things 'still work'.  In this case they don't.  So I'm looking for some ideas on how the world ends, and how these people experience it.  I've already written up a brief piece on this, but again, it's not very good.  I'd be interested in any feedback, or if you want to add new stuff or ideas yourself, feel free.

Got a few thoughts down concerning the end of the world...

This is a rough outline of what will happen. It doesn't go into depth, but I'd be interested in other events you think should happen.


And then this link is more 'story form'.


First chapter is up.
