Because of the cue word, I’m stepping away from my Fear sketch to bring you a snip (in its entirety) called Galactic Soup. And yes, I totally chose the cue word so that I could post this, lol! It’s pretty much as is. All the context I have is that the viewer is on a spaceship, and is running a pet project of his. The ‘galactic soup’ is displayed in a 3-D viewing tank. So here goes.
At that moment, I felt I was staring into a maelstrom of galactic soup. Stars exploded, dying colourfully, while others were born in the nurseries. The time lapse spun the galaxy in the tank, swirling the eddies and tides like so many fingers. As the centuries spun by, the galaxy shrank until all the suns, planets and debris were swallowed by the super-massive black hole in the centre. In a perfect universe, maybe.
Please tell me what your thoughts are, and then head over to the SFFS blog to read snippets from the other fab authors who take part in this ring!
