Change


by Anglea over 6 years ago

The city was empty. I lost my way back in the dark unfamiliar landscape, absence of neon flashing landmarks to guide, silence unnerving me like nothing ever had in my one hundred and eighty years on this planet. Since immortality was the norm, the world had changed beyond all imagination, people no longer wishing to stay cramped so scattered around the galaxy, Earth abandoned, unloved, only a few of us remained as guardians. But in essence we were prisoners of our grandparents greed, innovation and biological advances.

I am a very lonely man. We all are.

Hi Anglea,

I am huge fan of this story. I find the narrative very melancholic and unnerving at the same time. In fact, this is an animated short I've made for a Digital Media assignment which borrowed a large part of your narrative. You can watch the short here:

I've made this purely for the greater good of creativity and education in mind so there are no profit or copyright ownership involved. The original story of course still belongs to you, I merely attempted to translate it into another medium.

Thanks again for the wonderful stories and keep it up!

Harry I was most surprised to read your comment and see the animation, it was fascinating to see and hear my story shown in that way.

Six minute story is brilliant as a daily mental excercise to write on a variety of topics. It involves a lot of trial and error before I finish in the given time.

I am often surprised which of my stories receive the most views, often those I planned to delete.
