    Afterwards by Pyreneeees

    Summary: Life doesn’t end after the war. Drabble Collection, 1,670 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Six people, all affected or unaffected by the war in different ways, living their lives. Because after a war has been waged and lost and won, that’s one thing every survivor has in common: moving forward. These are snapshots of lives and half-lives of the ordinary people, not the heroes. Sensitive and honest.

    Why You Might Not Care: This is one of those short little pieces that seems almost pointless at first because it’s tied together with a very thin thread. And, just maybe, that’s the point.

      sorry, sorry, I tried the link, but it wouldn’t work for me. Though I do have incredibly slow internet; I’ll try again later …

      I adored this. The snapshots into someone’s lives seem at first to have no point… but it’s the underlying idea, of moving forward. Oh, excellent rec.
