"You’re a character in a 1950s sitcom. The black and white antics taking place amongst you and yours are equal parts funny and heartwarming. Suddenly you notice Them watching you, and you’re struck with fear. You know Them, and you know what They’re capable of."
"You are a zombie working a dead-end job in an office. Things have been boring ever since you and yours ate the last human. You decide you need some excitement in your unlife. "
"You’re in the audience at an orchestra. In the middle of the piece the lights go out fully and the orchestra stops playing. Silence. The lights come on and everyone is gone. The audience and orchestra, vanished. All that remains is you and a viola player. And a cackle."
"You’re lying on a blanket with someone important to you in a clearing in the woods. The two of you are staring up at the starry sky talking about the future. One by one the stars begin to go out, until none are left. "
"You’re a bee-person from the year 6015. You’re in bee-person school learning about artifacts and mythology found in stories from the long lost years, 1920-2020. Known as “the century that information forgot.” Who are these ancient people’s gods? What are their tools? How did they survive as long as they did without a stinger on their butt to fend off predators?"
"You’re staring out the window of your apartment, head in a daze from any number of things (sickness, hangover, too much coffee, too little sleep, etc.) Between the skyscrapers you see something move. You squint, but don’t need to, as it raises up. It is the face of an Old God."
"You enter a theatre ready to watch a show. A man sits on stage, covered in muscle and tattoos. He closes his eyes and the tattoos begin to lift from his skin and onto the screen."
