Hey! It looks like you're new here. You might want to check out the introduction.

Oblomov, or Обломов. Like the novel by Ivan Goncharov.

Hey. Cool introduction for the Writeoff here. We have art now.
#18513 · 6
Not being very busy during the summer, I told myself I'd finally participate in a Writeoff. In fact, I even implored my good comrade Monokeras to hold me to it.

"Okay Oblo. I hope you live up to it. [...] But, if you duck out of your promise. I swear you’ll have to face the music."

So, with this chilling threat, I finally finished my first Writeoff entry under my real alias. I'm spared Mono's wrath, but probably not the wrath of reviewers.

So, good luck to all, and here we go!

This story has brought us closer to Stalin's grace.

This is great.

Only the second story I read, but I can already see this near the top. >>Aragon really put it perfectly.

Also, there's no wolves.

It's late, and a few hours away from results, but on the off chance that you're not commenting on your own entry to throw us off:

I really do think that this is a strange issue to have with the story. I imagine you must be passionate about your conception of human nature, or else this one line wouldn't have caught your eye so much. Isn't it a common trope in post-apocalyptic fiction, video games, and so on that the resulting world is a lawless, faithless place? Historically, did movements like existentialism not flourish after great calamities like World War II, horrific events which made people question whether God could preside over such a world? In any case, the author never reveals what kind of calamity struck the world, nor do I think this entry is supposed to prompt a debate about human nature. But maybe that's part of your issue with the story. I just think this is an odd snippet to break the story over.
