Title: Cascadia...The Rusty Ruins?
Post by: Straif on April 10, 2014, 05:19:43 PM
So here's an interesting little tidbit for you...for quite some time now, people have been (apperently) wanting the entire northwestern coast of America to become its own country.
No. Seriously. Check it out;

Now of course, as I was reading this, it got me thinking...
The Rusty Ruins are mentoned to be MASSIVE. Much bigger (I've calculated anyway) than what Seattle currently is, and even with expected growth patterns it still wouldn't fit.
So here's my theory (and the best part is, no one can prove me wrong, hehe, because we know nothing of the past of the Uglies verse);
Pacifica formed, grew, and was obliterated by the oil bug.

It's a great story here. I feel like I'm reading a lot. And I have to talk to my friends at school, I read a lot.

This is very random but this image IS the Rusty Ruins for me, the fireworks from the background are perhaps from New Prettty Town
