Introduction to thrilling post-apocalyptical dark fantasy The Cataclysm

"

"Fear is only as deep as the mind allows."

-Japanese Proverb



In the beginning there was no earth or sky or sea or animals. The end was no different. 


The first day brought lightning bolts sent from the heavens, carved by the supple hands of Zeus. They rained down on the earth and erupted into fires that ate away at civilisation. Fires that were neither red nor orange. Those fires were deep blue; effervescent.


On the second day the oceans were in turmoil; they heaved onto the land until everything was submerged; a global Atlantis. If humans were ever in need of gills it was then.


The earthquakes came on day three. The ground tore open at every angle and drained the water into every crevice there was. And so the volcanoes were brought to life. Abruptly awoken they created a world of dried lava foreseen by Pompeii.


The fourth day was the last, and the worst; a plague like no other infiltrated the earth. A plague that harmed not the body but the brain. A plague that warped the mind with enough fear to render its owner incapable of coherent thought. A plague that ended life as it was known. 


And so at the 148th hour, there was nothing left but death, despair and the hopeless remains of the cataclysm.

Seems great so far. Not too sure what “until everything was submerged; a global Atlantis.” is supposed to mean though. It ends like Atlantis ended, or is it Atlantis that ends?

thank you, and it's meant to mean that the world became like Atlantis because it was underwater

Well it's a bit unclear, as I pointed out. You might want to go over it and make it a bit more obvio.. read more
Good, but was a little confused as to whether this was the earth forming or being decimated.

thank you!
wow really interesting! I really can't wait to see where you plan to go with this:)
but when you say supple you know it means flexible right? usually when people descirbe Zeus's hand they say around the lines of strong or mighty... what's you view on the supple tho? I'm thinking you were getting at felxible as in he-can-do-all flexible(if that makes sense) but i just wanted to be sure so that i understand!

Interesting:) I found the first line very intriguing,"In the beginning there was no earth or sky or sea or animals. The end was no different." Well said. Keep writing!

:) anytime
And thank you for your review!
This is a really nice Apocalypse, but I will need to put salt into your bruises. I will ignore that and am waiting for next, but that's totally impossible and illogical. I'm looking forward to the realization of this proverb you chose.
