Recommended Posts

Dust Storm

Chapter 1- Grains of Dust

After arriving at Dunian base "Red Dawn", Bob and Jeb settled in the main habitat module, to take a rest after a difficult night..

But we all know that there is a kerbal, that never sleeps, you probably guessed who it is.

The journey starts here...

Bob crawled out of his bed, arguing about his lost sleep, putting on his dusty space suit..

Airlock opened and he looked at happy, energetic face of Jeb.

Jeb got himself to the rover, that he was super happy to drive, since they arrived..

So did Bob.

Bob knew, if Jeb is going to do something, there will definetly be at least one of these things- Casualties,Explosions and weird bugs..

So, Jeb to kill of all the chances of Bob escaping, switched on the electric engine and rushed though the sandy dunes of Duna!

After a little trip, Jeb found a little plain, he wanted to take some pictures from there, but he forgot his camera, altough the urge to stop there, was still there.

And we all know..

That if there is an urge, there is a reason...

But his idea to troll Bob a bit, quickly turned into hell for Jeb..

Bob walked around, took samples, digged soil,walked around, took samples, digged soil,walked around, took samples, digged soil,walked around, took samples, digged soil and over and over again..

Jeb couldn't take it anymore and just called back, saying that they are losing time here..

Bob went back to the rover, with tired, yet satisfacted face...

And then, Bob felt asleep...

Jeb didn't payed much attention to that, he just carried on riding the rover!

But then, when he almost arrived, Bob suddenly was woken up, just to make a company for Jeb.

Bob, opened his eyes lazily, looking at excited face of Jeb..

But than, he looked around and saw the beutiful glazing sun of Duna..

But then, disaster striked...

Suddenly, the wheels suddenly stopped moving and scared the landscape of Duna, with a weird line...

Jeb's frozen gloves quickly slipped..

Jeb fell off the rover, hitting the ground hard..

Bob hold on for his dear life..

Jeb was thrown out!

Bob, unlike Jeb, reacted quickly and have hit the manual brakes..

Bob mumbled into microphone..

Hearing the dead silence..

Feeling the worst thing-being abandoned..

The freezing desert that is Duna.

If takes, never gives back...

It took Bob's faith in his good future..

Bob raged in his weakness over situation! Jeb feared, he was never familiar with this feeling, now he is, more than that, it was the most powerful feel he ever had!

 

But then he looked back and then gazed at the wall of sand and rust...

Jeb and Bob rushed to the most covered place-behind the rover!

But then, the rover begins to be shaked by the wind..

Jeb, now was a real being..

You know he is usually thinked as a person who can only act, but not feel..

Now, he was fearful, just like any kerbal out there..

My grandfather used to tell to me.-

You know how to understand if you are dead or alive?

Pain..

If you are still in agonizing pain, you are alive..

So, yes. Life is pain.

Calm is death.

But Jeb, had something every living being has....The power to not give up!

This is the strongest power in the world!

So he stood up, in pain and blood, but alive..

So, Bob pulled motionless Jeb to the rover.. His plan was to push the rover, that was broken all the way to the base..

The sandstorm stopped..

Bob was already tired.. But he tried anyway..

Trying when you can't is like bashing your fist over a stone wall, at first it seems useless, but it has result if repeated lots of times..

Although, Bob lost it..

He suddenly turned..

Suddenly both Bill and Bob understood..

Thanks a lot!

And just for your knowledge, i will expose a little psychological trick i used!

Bascily the first part is supposed to be funny, just to generate harmones of happyness and joy.

When everything is getting bad, you feel terror and fear, there goes the other kind of harmones + you get a crazy dose of adrenalin!

The ending is supposed to be a bit sad, because you need to calm down a little.. 

And then in the end, you have the whole bunch of feelings and you are feeling pumped because of adrenalin!

Basicly, what you have feeled is a mini-mini-mini version of something you would feel if you were drugged, or were high on alcohol.

So, yeah..

Words are drugs, but without side effects.

+Plus the song at the end is supposed to add some more feeling to the already existing bunch.

I liked it!

If I was being really picky, I'd say there are a couple of places where the writing is a little off-beat but then you come to a panel that just gets everything so right. Like the one I quoted above. That final "I suppose we just added 2 to them..." just really hit me. Yeah.. got a little dust in my eye over here.
