The End Is Nigh

How are we all?

Are we all nervous? Terrified, even? Are we all dreading December 21st, the last day on Earth as predicted by the Mayans? Although, as Jon Stewart pointed out on The Daily Show, the Mayans haven't exactly got the best track record as far as predicting the end of civilisations go... to wit, the Mayans...

But I digress.

So how will you be spending the last day on Earth? Will you be surrounded by loved ones? Will you be sobbing into a tub of ice cream? Will you, in fact, forget all about the end of the world because you still haven't got your Christmas shopping done?

Or will you be reading a very special end-of-the-world short story as posted on this very Blog- a short story that will ONLY be available on the 21st and 22nd before being taken down-  in which Skulduggery and Valkyrie track down the cause of the world's destruction and do their very best to avert it? A short story called "The Button"?

Hmm? Is THAT what you'll be doing?

Do any of you know good study techniques? I have to memorise a ridiculous amount of Latin by next week.

Robin Snowscar said...

Well good show.

Actually, Maralie, it was 9:45 so quarter to ten when I posted it.

Robin Snowscar said...

Kessie - I had to sit and learn mine. Separated the sentences learnt the sentence. Memorized a word from the sentence and ta-da so no. You have to work.

Arcanine said...

You freaking bet on it I'm going to be reading that story! But, I was wandering whether the story will be up early enough for Australian minions to read it? You know with the timezones and stuff won't the world be ending here first? Otherwise I'm going to be working on that Friday but I get to have a sweet as work Christmas party that day too so between this short story and free alcohol I don't think the end of the world will be that bad for me! :)

Melica Frost said...

I hate social dancing but Im not going on a rant about my experiences today...

Robin Snowscar said...

I'm on tumblr Izz but it's a pure Divergent blog 'cause it's for my fb page

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

Two days? Well I guess it's not for everyone...
You kind of need to get in the fandom spirit.

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

I love Divergent! It's such an awesome set of books. and Veronica Roth says she's calling the last one Detergent until she finds a good name!
That makes me laugh.

Zafira Kerias said...

Im excited. I really hope I can thank Derek if i catch him on the Blog

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

Also we must remember that The Doctor hasn't actually seen Oswin's face. So he wont know that Clara looks like her.

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

I think we had best not let the fandom run away with us.
Do any of you actually believe that the world will end on the 21st?

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

Yeah I heard about that! he killed his dad then went to the school to kill his mum (who was a teacher at the school) and killed a bunch of kids too. I think the cops shot him.

Robin Snowscar said...

*whimpers* Why the violence? Violence is not nice.

Zafira Kerias said...

Well....im in shock. Im freakin scared thats 2 and half hours from where i live

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

Well the guy is dead.

You know what's funny is that when people are afraid of people with guns they buy more guns to protect themselves.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

CAUSE I FEEL WEIRD. GET UP.

Crystal Darkflair said...

I will defo be reading the button

Robin Snowscar said...

Nothing's gonna happen Zaf, you'll be fine.

Robin Snowscar said...

*sits on the floor defiantly* NO!

Zafira Kerias said...

It just...its pretty scary

Robin Snowscar said...

Yes, it is. I was freaked out when I found out and I live in England

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*screams* *has a tantrum* GET THE HELL UP!

Robin Snowscar said...

*lies down* I don't feel like it.

Melica Frost said...

its ok zaf, I know what you mean a pedo and a rapist live 2 streets away from me, the rapist was in jail for 6 yrs as he attempted to rape a girl at my primary school, but hes out now and also just last week a woman was murdered in her home and she lived 5 mins away from my school... Scotland I swear is a scary placed you never know when you will be stabbed...

Zafira Kerias said...

I wonder if Derek knows....I mean his nieces are like what pretty close to the age? It makes me sick to think someone like that would kill innocent kids! The kids were looking forward to Christmas..

Maralie Lily Charm said...

*kicks Robin* Please. I need to take my anger out on something. Where is the nearest punchbag?

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

I guess so. But you know people can be stopped.
When we had all those Black Saturday bushfires down here we were all really freaked out. I remember watching a fire burning over on a hill a few kilometres away and eating a peanut butter sandwich. Everyone was panicking because if the wind blew in the wrong direction we'd be stuffed.

There was always smoke in the air too. The constant threat of the fires hung over us and we knew the only thing we could do was run.
We were just lucky the fires didn't come our way that year.

Robin Snowscar said...

Why Mara? I like the floor. *points to punchbag*

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

I don't want to try and drown out your fear. I'm just saying some things are more dangerous than others. The best thing you can do is be prepared for whatever might happen.

Robin Snowscar said...

*nods* You can't live your life afraid

Melica Frost said...

yeah,like I know how not to be stabbed ( we were taught in school) but its just preparing for the worst... not that the worst will happen but y'know...

Zafira Kerias said...

Exactly. Look at 9/11. Who the hell expected? And Superstorm Sandy....

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Thank you.

*goes over and punches punchbag HARD*

*punchbag falls on ground and exploads*

*stalks over to Robin*

It broke.

Robin Snowscar said...

*shrugs* find another Maralie

People did predict 9/11 but who'd believe them?

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

And what are the odds that an unsinkable ship sunk?

Zafira Kerias said...

*sighs*

denver....we all should know. Derek wrote a Blog post on it. Maybe he'll do the same, I mean yeah FANTASY violence is fun but REAL violence is not

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Gahhhhhh I feel weird.

9/11 was scary.

OH MY GOD. I hope my nana is okay... she lived near the place where Sandy hit :/

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

I hope I'm not the only one who is slightly looking forward to something apocalyptic happening on the 21st. It would make my life so much more interesting you know?

Robin Snowscar said...

I had a dream that there was lots of twisters and floods. *nods* You heard it here first.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

I had a dream that the world exploaded but all the bloglandians met up to die together... O.o

Robin Snowscar said...

Good dream ^^ Was I there?

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Yes.

Zafira Kerias said...

Maralie what state? I live where Sandy hit

Robin Snowscar said...

I need to go to bed, night!

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

Both those dreams are awesome.

I guess in a way we will all meet up because we'll be here reading the story.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

I don't know. New York/Manhatten?

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Night Robin!

Zafira Kerias said...

New York....Manhatten was hit, but from what I understand I beleve they are ok.

Maralie Lily Charm said...

Ohh. Okay. Thanks Zaf :)

Zafira Kerias said...

Because I don't live in America every time someone says 'elementary' I think of Sherlock...

Zafira Kerias said...

DEREK!! If..you arent like...busy, could you possibly make a post for those of us who may want to say something about the shooting? I dont think something like this needs to be in the insanity of regular Blogland chat :/

Zafira Kerias said...

Blergh!!! Zaffy feels like crap

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

No you did good. It was sincere and to the point.

Zafira Kerias said...

I want Necromancy. I will be searching for Derek in the after life so he can tell us the ending of SP

Lorelei Izabell Fetch (AKA Izz) said...

He'd probably just make it up on the spot and be like: "and then Britney Spears came and killed everyone. The end."
