Are we still here?

Oh good. Okay. Just checking.

I don’t know about the timing of this post, but I figure if the world was going to end I would have learned about it by now. Frankly put, if I’m going to buy into the Mayans predicting world’s end, I’m going to fall into the party of ‘subtle single event changes the course of history forever.’ A bit like in the second (or third?) series of Alias.

If you’re not familiar with the show (you really should be, by the way), then the character Arvin Sloane has spent a great deal of time searching for something that the CIA would rather prefer he did not have. And they receive intel that a world shattering event will take place at a particular time. They do everything they can to prevent what they believe to be a dangerous artefact being shipped across the globe, however at the time specified by their intel, they open the box and find it empty. However, thousands and thousands of miles away Arvin Sloane receives a little piece of paper that he opens up and reads at the time specified by this intel. I always liked that clever little twist on the idea of world shattering event; some dude reads a piece of paper. Yes, outwardly it is a small thing, but the consequences of him reading that paper were felt through the remaining four (or three?) seasons of the show.

So yeah… I decided that at some point today I’m going to… I dunno… fart or something… and that’s going to change the world forever. Hehee.

Failing that, the world has ended and this post was completely pointless and is lost in the ether of nowhere because an invisible meteorite has impacted earth, caused multiple floods, earthquakes and landslides, generated an instant and all encompassing winter and killed of millions of people in a single stroke.

Yeah… that.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Welcome to the club! That’s what the new-agers have been twittering quietly to each other for a while now.

    Oh, wait. It’s the 22nd where I am, and I think the 23rd where you are. What do you know? We’re still here! For all the end-of-the-world hopefuls, I guess the next millennium is only about 987 years away. Better luck next time! 😛

    (I’ll bet the world doesn’t end even then!)
