If I Stand, We Fall (OOC)

Postby coinsruledude » Thu Dec 11, 2014 3:03 am

I managed to write a sizable intro for this new short today. It was pretty easy since I already had some ideas in mind.

Reading all of this cute, innocent stuff about Harmony at five years old, then immediately thinking "****, you're going to be a murdering, torturing, corpse screwing rapist one day"

Well, that's the point, lol.

By the way, it took me a long time to think of a fitting title for this short/series of shorts. I finally decided on this one, because I think it really embodies how the apocalypse affects the average survivor on a worldwide scale.
"If I stand, we fall" is a shorter way of saying, "If I put my own survival and the survival of the people I care about the most above everything else, then society as a whole begins to wither away". Survivors becoming self-centered is a natural response and can't be blamed on anything except human nature, but each time you completely loot a store clean, the next person to go there will leave with an empty stomach; the next time you set an ambush on a main road, you'll ensure yourself an income of supplies while at the same time destroying others' chances at survival. It's brutal and sometimes unavoidable, but survival forces you to throw away what you understand as mankind and only think about yourself.

Deep stuff there, coins. I like it. Funny how animals go through this **** everyday, though my guess is they don't think about it like that. Or in any way, really.

............I picked mine cause it sounded cool lol. I tried thinking of something really fitting, but I couldn't after like half an hour and I wanted the post up before I went to sleep.

In other news, I found a song that is basically Harmony's entire character arc in a nutshell. Listen through it and you should know what I mean lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW_gRcz389M
