For this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge, Richard and Jayden are worldbuilding! Using Rebekah Loper‘s book The A-Zs of Worldbuilding as a guide, we have teamed up to give descriptions of the world we’re creating, along with snippets of what it’s like to exist in the world. Enjoy!
Background by Jayden for U is for Universe:
Since this is still Earth, a lot of these questions have already been answered by reality. Everyone in Adirlacson is aware of celestial bodies and the larger universe, but there’s been no contact with any other worlds or anything like that. All of the world was explored, or at least almost all of it, once upon a time, but since the dinosaurs came back and global warming happened, life has changed drastically.
With the Adrilacson community, the average person doesn’t think anything outside that community exists, but those higher up know that there are other communities throughout the country and world that have different structures. But they don’t want their submissives to know that. Most of their submissives are happy and satisfied. Those that aren’t, well… maybe you’ll find out more of that in the book.
Story by Richard:
“What if we crashed the moon?” asked Jack.
“What?” asked Mark.
“It took a massive asteroid to kill the dinosaurs last time. And that worked pretty well for a couple million years. So this time, we hit them with the moon.”
“How would we even do that?”
“I dunno. But we brought back dinosaurs, turned them into cyborg killing machines, and almost wiped out humanity. I’m sure we can figure it out, and it’s not like things can get any worse.”
“Oh yeah, there’s no way the fucking moon could kill us all.”
“The tides are already a disaster from global warming, and Adirlacson is so far underground, I’m sure we’d be fine.”
“But the dinosaurs won’t?”
“Think, Mark! We live underground, led by the perfect wisdom of the Dommes! Dinosaurs have tiny lizard-bird brains and mostly live on the surface. It worked before, and it didn’t kill all the people back then!”
“There weren’t any people back then! We were… whales or something? I don’t know, but I do know we hadn’t evolved yet!”
Richard: That’s all I got. I dunno. Mostly I just wanted to get rid of the moon since Jayden pointed out that it was the same as in “reality.”
