:D I like it.
Mind if I write an Uglies fanfic along the same lines as yours, but from the POV of a girl from Idaho who rides out on her horse looking for other survivors and finds a camp?

Yes, please. I can already see it; she's a farm girl, living on a farm that's run "naturally" by her dad, a former Monsanto ex who left the company and decided to get back to the land. It's all organinc, and they use animals instead of machines to harvest, so the Oil Bug doesn't effect them. She sees the fire in the sky from the Bug, and goes to investigate. Cue her running into the survivors from Seattle.

Pretty close to what I was getting at xD What if the camp ends up being her home, since she's got a renewable food source, and she welcomes the Seattle survivors because she knows she's not going to survive alone?

Maybe. So, is her family dead from the bug, or what? Cause the way I see it, the Seattle survivors are in complete shit at that point. All they have with them are their hydrogen powered vehicles, and anything non-plastic. In fact, several of them died in transit because their stuff caught fire.
Or are you seeing this happening a while later?

I'm thinking her parents died maybe on a supply run? Right at the beginning of the bug?

Oh, okay, I see. They go into town, she's left behind to watch the farm, bug hits their place, they get flash cooked...and she's stuck there with her animals and no support. A bit of time goes by, she realizes she's on her own, lets go the animals on the farm to roam free, then mounts up her trusty horse with all the provisions she has and rides off. Finds the remaining Seattlites, invites them back to her farm, and there we go.

Yay! Now I just need to restart my story. Shouldn't be too hard.

Sure. Heh. "Ping". You do that on perpous, or is that what you actually use?

The forum used to call PMs "pings." I don't know if that died or not, I just returned this week after a six month absence.

Well, I'm taking it and using it myself from now on. Damn easier to say than "PM". Also, sounds less like it has to do with menstration.

Thank you! Someone else sees it.
