Episode Seventy Seven – This Island Universe

Big Red Couch - Episode Seventy Seven - This Island Universe


Trading ships running up and down a river whose shores touch different realities.

Building out from a the centre of a pocket universe, to uncover it’s boundaries and it’s secrets.

An artificial archipelago populated by the “insanely” wealthy, who suddenly have face an apocalypse and each other’s…    ..eccentricities.

Between the towering rows of crops and the treads of the machines that tend them, humanity ekes out an existence.

A slip of the tongue.  A case of mistaken identity.  Or the symptoms a partially erased alternative timeline?

Thanks to Taz and Burning for their ideas from from the Fear the Boot Forum thread!
