The Start of The Fall

Everyone remembers where they were when The Fall came. Evie was in a meeting about how to get fresh water to those in the city centre. Clive says he was fishing his sister out of the river. So I guess people had a clue that things were on the slide when the announcement came that Google was down, irrevocably.

We’d had no electricity for a week, but the history books will show the apocalypse began with the end of YouTube.

I do kind of miss it though. I didn’t really watch it, but it was nice to know it was there.


101 words this one, and a bit more world building for this story, which is growing in my mind and I suspect I will get a chance to work on properly in 2018. Until then, I think a lot my flash fiction will be building on it in preparation 🙂
