Friday Fictioneers - The Last Sunset
/

A sinister cosmic force wanted to end our species. 5000 years ago Asteroid 376GH was gently nudged toward planet Earth’s orbit.

A slow death.

We would know it.

We could see it coming.

If only 376GH had the courtesy to hit directly and not at an angle we would have had a chance.

Angular touchdown in the Siberian Tundra gave us all a week of pause to enjoy the Sun one last time.

The Sun.

In its last moments looking like a full moon peeking through a cloudy night sky we were suffocating.

Appreciate the gift 376GH gave to you.

Friday Fictioneers - The Snow Vendor
/

The best and coldest spectacle comes into town once a year.

The event is called the Snow Circus.

Lions, bears and tigers all on parade gliding gracefully with their handlers.

Slick frozen surfaces sparkling under massive spotlights cause big crowds to pour in from the surrounding countryside to see a show.

The Summertime Snow Vendor; he hatched a plan this year to steal their winter secrets for his own.

Year after year he shovels snow from the surface to store deep in his freezing cave.

He grows tired, now, of the cold, of the dark. Off to the show tonight.
