Summary: It’s never easy letting go.
NOTE: This is a very rough draft with no editing at all (per National Novel Wiriting Month rules) and is presented for amusement value only. Think of it as a periscope into my writing process rather than a coherent story!
There will most likely be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, contradictions/retcons, uneven characterization and pacing. These snippits are also posted out of order, so please refer to the Outline to figure out where it’s supposed to fit.
The theory goes that a new world is created every time a decision is made, but there are hundreds of millions of decisions made every millisecond and that makes such a host of worlds that it makes Gray’s head hurt just to think about it.
The science behind the city is half reason and half late-night madness and it shows when you start to peel away her programming. She’s a city built on contradictions and most of her time is spent rationalizing and irrational world. Atlantis exists in the middle of nothing and it’s only the laws she enforces on the void that keep them stable.
Gray wonders sometimes how much it will take to make her let go.
