Emergence – A Twitter Novel – Interlude Parts 01 - 07

Interlude: Part One - Crisis

Inter. Pt. 01
It was felt across the Empire. Every Observer sensed it; most returned to HomeWorld. Those with powers summoned them.

Interlude: Part Two - Vulnerable
Inter. Pt. 02
Continuum did little for its defenses. The systems were automated, but still required thought. It collapsed in shock.

Interlude: Part Three – Defense
Inter. Pt. 03
Former Observers; those closest to the Empire, kept composure during the catastrophe, marshaling what forces they had.

Interlude: Part Four – Discontinuum
Inter. Pt. 04
Jim; Observer 9…took control, he was now the whole Continuum. He magnified its agony, and partitioned the Collective.

Interlude: Part Five – Awakening
Inter. Pt. 05
Consciousness returned to Continuum; slowly, like a flicker of lights; a sequence of dim illuminations in the shadow.

Interlude: Part Six – Individuation
Inter. Pt. 06
Something forgotten rose in the Collective; a response to the agony it felt, an instinct for safety. Unity collapsed.

Interlude: Part Seven – Schizophrenia
Inter. Pt. 07
Continuum was lost; those who could retreated, erected mental walls against the din of voices, or dissolved in chaos.
