Afterworlds!
« on: September 07, 2013, 09:39:45 AM »

Okay, I'm really surprised nobody's made this topic. I'm surprised I haven't made this topic before now.

So, Afterworlds. Are you excited? Never mind, of course we're all excited? What do you think it could be about? Thoughts? Discussion!

So from what I remember, this is what we have to go off of: the title, Afterworlds; there's two female protagonists; and the release date is October 28 (next year, sadly), which is a hint at the subject matter.

So, I figure the main characters are in their late teens/young adult (because most of Scott's main characters are). I also did some research on the date: October birthstone is opal, which probably isn't important, but I like over thinking things. The zodiac is Scorpio. People born on October 28 are supposed to have special connections with water (also a horoscope thing). Bill Gates was born on October 28. Harvard was founded on October 28. Eli Whitney patented the cotton gin on Otober 28. The 1900 Olymics ended on October 28. Israel adopted their flag on October 28. The first female U.S. ambassador, October 28. A moon rover called the Luna 23 launched on October 28. Some guy thought the world would end on October 28, 1992.

I figure something in here has to be important... Most of them aren't, though, I'm sure...

But Scott said it was! "Afterworlds will come out late next year, probably on October 28. (This date is a clue to the book’s subject matter! Spin on that one, fannish brains!)" I am a fannish brain, so... Yeah...

No synopsis. This is all we've got.

After thinking it over for a while, if I got the October 28 event that it's about, I think it has to do with the guy who thought the world would end on October 28, 1992. Especially from the title 'Afterworlds'. Maybe in the book, the characters are in an alternate universe where the world did end that day. And he said it was two stories woven together, so, uh...

I tend to come to conclusions from small hints (they're not always accurate...) I think I know what the next season of Survivor is gonna be, too (if you watch Survivor, that'll make sense).

I'm honestly surprised so few people want to discuss this! This is the Scott Westerfeld forum!
