The sound of light running footsteps disturbed Amdour in the library. He'd installed six view-stations, six viewers and now... nothing to view. Had there been misinterpretation of the archaic scrolls? Had the devices been installed wrongly? Amdour looked up to see a panting messenger nearly slide into him. It took everything not to flinch in the messenger's face.

“Peace to AmdourLibrarian! Something in the sixth view-station!” The messenger pivoted on heel and ran back down the hall. Amdour carelessly dropped a scroll and took off at speed himself. Excitement tinged with hope made his twin hearts beat slightly out of sync, dizzying. Amdour's soft-soled shoes added to his momentum and he nearly collided with the messenger in front of the sixth view-station.

The image was slightly grainy and colorless, but not lacking in clarity for all that. A bedroom, large bed neatly made, many pillows formed the majority of the view. Shopping bags and a purse lay strewn on the bed. Half in and half out of one bag lay a book. “A Guide to Self-Satisfaction for the Busy Woman”  in blue 16 point type on a plain gray background.

Amdour sucked in a loud breath. It worked! It truly worked!

“A Recent History of The Collapse and a Proposed Solution, Presented to ErushalKing by His Most Loyal Librarian and Keeper of the History of Our Beloved Land of Sairen.” Amdour thought the title of his work to be overlong and fawning, but there was a form and function to be followed. Especially since the Proposed Solution was... unique.

As was The Collapse itself. Neither natural science nor any of the thaumaturgical arts and sciences could explain or reverse it. No females born for the past 50 years. Women of childbearing age under siege by a deathly fever which rendered them sterile, and then killed them within two years. Sairen was not large nor populous and in fact only herd animals and their scaly, enormous predators lived in the other lands. ErushalKing banned research into other fields and declared that the most successful solution would elevate its discoverer beyond measure. He was being plainly optimistic in thinking there might be several solutions proposed at once.

Amdour faintly recalled something from the depths of the library storage. Here were all books that became outdated, unpopular or simply lacked readers. Something in a early thaumaturgical science text... images gathered from other lands. And another book regarding manipulation of life at a distance. The latter was suppressed for good reason; there were ways to upset the monarchical rule, if one misused the power. However he felt it worth the chance if it could provide some way to undo The Collapse.

I hope to come back to it after my NaNoWriMo is finished. Thanks for the encouragement, actually. :)

@moon I'm deeply intrigued.


I just found this and was hoping there'd be more. Perhaps one day?
