FFM 2021 28: A Collapsing Galaxy

No prompts used, although I was in a mood for destroying a galaxy. Set into the same universe as the stories about the Heavy Metal Sanctuary. Filter words have been avoided as part of the week’s sidequest.


At the first sight of danger, the richest fled.

When it became clear that the planet was doomed, the wealthy took their leave.

The ones who could barely afford the trip away left only after the black hole had expanded close to them and an evacuation order had been given.

The ones who could not afford to leave were left behind to die.

The primitives only found out what was happening when it was far too late.

The most primitive had no idea that their very own galaxy was collapsing as they hunted for ostriches.

  1. Yeah black holes are pretty nasty, from my understanding you can’t escape from one if you get too close to it due to it’s strong gravity.

    And I just had to check wikipedia: “A black hole is a region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that nothing—no particles or even electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from it.”

    Also I like this story not only because its setting scratches my itch for interesting stuff that is in space such as black holes but also because it has the thing where the rich get to flee from doom, same kind of thing happens at the near beginning of the first Ratchet & Clank game (childhood memories :))
