Man’s Best Friend, @elvet – Protection is repaid in kind in this story of a post-apocalyptic veterinarian. Mankind has really gone to the dogs.

For a Bride, @Cat's Cradle – A parent will sacrifice anything for their children. Sometimes, however, a sacrifice is better kept until later. Something old...?

Door Gods, @Daysman – What is a sentinel to do when it has no-one left to guard? Better to leave than to stay there and be door-mant...

L'état, C'est Moi, @Victoria Silverwolf – Some accuse the aristocracy of living in a world of their own. Given the state of things, who can blame them?

Empire of All, @SPoots – The survivors of a devastating war struggle to rebuild a world that others destroyed. Dig for victory!

So.... I forgot that I had not looked to see if the new thread was up and was not getting my notifications of new posts. Today when I thought about it and I came to see ???> how many stories??? Yikes this is going to take a while. Please bear with me.

@Pedro Del Mar .... One Man's Treasure .... In the apocalypse there is a new order of value to things.
@Ashleyne .... DEAF WISH .... In the apocalypse there is a real joy in not hearing the danger coming.
@Ian Fortytwo .... The Robots are coming .... In the apocalypse there will be a mechanical empire.
@Calliopenjo .... My New Home .... In the apocalypse the neighbors are more friendly.
@dannymcg .... Last Supper .... In the apocalypse the zombies are the heroes.
@elvet .... Man’s Best Friend .... In the apocalypse friendly vets rule the empire.
@Cat's Cradle .... For a Bride .... In the apocalypse mothers still sacrifice for their children.
@Daysman .... Door Gods .... In the apocalypse there will be those who will protect the way out.
@Victoria Silverwolf .... L'état, C'est Moi .... In the apocalypse the insane can rule an empire.
@SPoots .... Empire of All .... In the apocalypse a small hole of hope remains.
@Culhwch .... An Ordinary Kind Of Empire .... In the apocalypse childhood fantasies are crushed.
@Justin Swanton .... After His Father's Heart .... In the apocalypse there will still be wars for empire.
@D.A. Xiaolin Spires .... apocalypSTICKS .... In the apocalypse miracles still happen and empires are built.
@Peter V .... Rise and Fall of the Gnoman Empire .... In the apocalypse payback is still (you know.)
@Luiglin .... Proposition .... In the apocalypse the angels still play their betting game on human tendency.

Stars! That took a long time. I shall not be so negligent in the next apocalypse.

Well there you go. A world where only peanuts grow. It sounds like the apocalypse to me. :p

An Ordinary Kind of Empire, @Culhwch – Usually when a child steps into their parent’s shoes it makes for a charming photo-op but in a world without grown-ups it takes on a far more serious tone...

After His Father’s Heart, @Justin Swanton – An ages-old tale of blood and betrayal. This father’s son takes more than a chip off the old block.

ApocalypSTICKS, @D.A. Xiaolin Spires – All this fuss about a bit of inclement weather? It’s hardly the end of the world, is it? Armageddon in microcosm.

Rise and Fall of the Gnoman Empire, @Peter V – Riddled with puns and references to classical history, this story chronicles the ig-gnome-inious end of an all-too-familiar empire.
