Spooktober 2022 Day 12: Revel

Content warning: implied murder

Our revel spilled out of a tavern and into the streets like a swelling celebration of your ham-fisted rule. Boisterous screams of laughter ripped through the tense night—calls to arms, drawing more and more partiers to our revelry.

To our secret rebellion.

Because you had gone too far this time.

A parade wove through your city. All the way around your castle. Encircling you. Drawing your guards away into the festivities.

Leaving you all alone in your tower. One against one party of everyone else.

And when we arrived at your gates, you didn’t know not to join us.

Featuring “I Hope This Email Does Not Find You!”

The last eight years have been the warmest on record.

Little Blue Marble‘s anthology of speculative climate fiction and poetry from an international slate of authors mourns and hopes in equal measure for the fate of our world and its ecosystems.

May these visions of the future inspire collective action before climate chaos becomes irreversible.
