Now, on to the story itself. As I said previously, this story is coming with very little planning. As a result, I don't have much of an idea yet as to what will happen in the story, but there are some things I am certain of. The story follows a young man named Charles who has an extraordinary nose and a knack for falling through realities. This means that he somehow finds himself floating in and out of different worlds and watching them blink out of existence. The narrator, Skelly, is extremely involved in his subject's story and offers a humorous commentary along the way. Every world that Charles sees is different, and every one of them ends with the day, but not all leave a black void where they are no more. Some worlds are not prepared for the end, some are. Some worlds are waiting to death while some push it away. The goal of the story is to ask the question- what should one do to prepare for the end?
Here is a short snippet from the introductory chapter in which the narrator, Skelly, is discussing Charles' nose:
"Anywho, back to “my” introduction to “our” story.
This tale is the kind that must be envisioned more than read or heard. It must be felt more than seen. It must be. However, to truly be it must have a central element and I choose to focus on Charles’ nose.
The nose is very ordinary and very plain. There is the tiniest dash of red freckles on the very tip top and a little zit withering in the corner. Sprouting a forest of black hair, the nose is currently clogged and a little bit swollen. The corners are lightly dusted with the purples and blues of a fading bruise, indicating he has been in a recent conflict with either a human or with an object. I will give you a little hint as to the future contents of this tale: it is always an object.
Well, I suppose that is all for the moment. If I say too much I will spoil the ending, which would be terrible! Of course, let’s face it- you probably read the ending already anyways. You always do."
