Summary:

The world as we know it came to an end in June, year 1290 when the nuclear war broke out. People claimed that the Cold War had come to an end in the late 1900s when Mikhail Gorbachev came into power and the U.S.S.R. fell drastically from its high position. It turns out people were wrong.
For years instead, it had been brewing malignantly beneath the roofs of the two sides’ heads. It was on the whim of two said to be extraordinary men under normal circumstances that it happened. Yet it was not under normal circumstances when the first bomb was released so suddenly, upsetting before killing the most optimistic of a people there ever was in a hundred years. But after so many great years, it was only fair that the world took such a rough turn.
Nobody, however, accounted for the world’s end on their agendas. Nobody was prepared. I, barely settling in my first year at college, certainly was not prepared.

They are AMAZING! I love this novel. For some reason, I keep on having flashbacks to The Host (If you've ever read it) and some characters/plot. It's VERY different, I just somehow think about that(:

Excellent! Your characters were relatable and grounded, even the "unrealistic" parts of the storyline were handled perfectly!

Wow.  Great job with this, it just keeps getting better and better.

I think the ONLY error I caught this time was when Natalya was saying that the needed new supplies or something, you used 'knew' instead of 'new'.  Very different words.  :P

Amazing job, definately one of the higher caliber pieces here on TI.

Yeah, I actually posted a comment somewhere below that it was a typo. Haha, the year is supposed to be 2090. Thanks so much for the comment. It means a lot :)

This novel is so interesting! The idea is so original. It's written very well and easily keeps attention. I've only read the first chapter so far, but I'm really looking forward to reading the rest. I have a question, though...Does this take place in the future? (I was wondering...because in the summary, it says the year '1290'...). Why can't novels be favorited? :)

I really enjoyed the character development between David and Natalya.  You can develope this even further.  I like the fact that they are so different from each other...I also like the fact that David experienced the deaths so quickly, ie his brother, his parents and the others...this can really be a character builder.  It is really good, please keep writing!!

Soon! I really want to finish chapter 6 so that I can post two chapters at once, but I'm kind of having trouble finishing it. I will try to get around to posting in the next week. Sorry for the wait!

Thanks!!! I'm glad you liked it. And I will be adding something. I kind of have to write it first, but hopefully, I'll have something posted soon. :)

ok just finished it...and i love it so much! the only thing i suggest is just to add something to the plot...maybe they find another person/people, something mysterious that may have to do with the impending nuclear war, or (if you want the story to be kinda short) rose's body? or you could have rose go off somewhere (maybe the white house or russia's equivalent). idk, those are just some ideas, but you probably have it all figured out :) keep up the nice work!
