Contrarion by Antonshine

One man bucks the 'total death' trend 

What happens if the wrong person survives the Apocalypse? Not someone brave, heroic, or even trying to survive that hard? Just someone with a tenous grip on reality, trying to find enough creamed corn and peanut butter to make it through the day? Here’s your chance to find out.

Presented herein are the journal entires of one Carson Ira Cotterill, the man who survived past the End of the World As We Know It.

It was a good day.

Note: Contrarion contains some graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.

An ongoing series, with new episodes sporadically

No title

Oct 6, 2016: Contrarion is very interesting.

At the time of this review, it sits at 18 fairly short posts and makes for a mostly easy read. The narrative is done in the style of the main characters journal as he navigates his way through a post apocalyptic world at the mercy of Cthulhu esque monstrosities.

Insane Renditions

By GeneralRincewind, member

Sep 20, 2016: I loved it.

It does the insanity and uncertainty of the world brilliantly, where you;re never wholly sure of what’s happening or not.

It really helps to sell the MC insanity, better than most other fiction. Who else has tried optimism as insanity?

Mechanically the descriptions are sparse, but this is [more . . .]
