- I enjoy Fantasy, Scifi, Romance, Magical, Modern and much more. I probably can't list them all! If there is something you want to try and it isn't listed here, just ask. I rarely say no!
No one ever say it coming.
No one believed the tales.
No one was prepared for it.
No one was ready to accept their fate.
At the beginning of the year 2012 a series of massive disappearances along the equator, cities were found deserted and empty, not a single sign of life left. At first may believe this to be the beginning to the second coming of christ and hundreds flocked to the torpical land to be taken to heaven.
However it wasn't into the arms of the God they were flocking too.
There in the tropical forests of Brazil and along the equator throughout the world, humans were being posessed. Their eyes would gloss over and a sinister look would cover their faces, once articulate voices being replaced by horrific screeches. Many did not realize the danger until it was too late, and one of the posessed was ripping open their stomach and feasting on their organs like it was a bloody feast. For years the possesed people stayed in the south, feasting upon humans while governments of the north studied them from a distance. One newly changed human was taken to an american lab for study, having been killed by a mob of normal humans when found eating a young child. In the autopsy, it was discovered that the human was being controled by...something.
It seemed as if this srange insect like creature had borrowed into the skull and comsumed the brain before taking it's place and controlling the body. Scientists quickly got to work studying the creatures but could not find many weaknesses for them other than they are defenseless when the head is removed from the body, trapping them in the skull. Even with this knowledge the 'swarm', as they were then named, slowly moved north and started to take over more and more land.
that was 30 years ago...
Now only communes remain as any form of protection to the massive swarm. Government has fallen and now corporations contol everything, forcing people to work to earn safty. Each commune can take care of itself, running on its own energy and growing its own food. They only connetions they make with other communes is to share information on the movement of the swarm. One commune in particular has seemed to have found an answer to the growing worry of the swarm coming and attacking the strong holds in search of more blood....
Food was started to grow scare as the swarm pushes for more and settles in territory once ment for farming. With the swarm easily out numbering the humans, one scientist had an idea. If the swarm had a preditor, their massive numbers could be brought down to a controllable level and possibly even terminated after that. And with the growing amount of starvation in the commune people were getting desperate for anything to eat. With they theory in play the scientists that controlled this strong hold quickly got to work developing what they believed would solve everything. Soon a seirum was produced and ready to go...
It just needed to be tested.
