For this
project, you will be writing a creative
short story
 in the genre of speculative fiction. Your plot
will center on two characters facing the apocalypse.

Your
project will have three graded pieces:

· 
Title, Soundtrack,
Abstract: 10%

· 
Story: 70%

· 
Reflection: 20%

Title,
Soundtrack, Abstract:

You will
design an apocalypse,
or the end of the world. You may use a science fiction concept similar to one
that we read about ­ time travel mishaps, war, or artificial intelligence ­ or
you may choose another, such as an epidemic of disease or a natural disaster.
You may not use
a deity or supernatural being of any kind for your apocalypse. (Aliens may be
permissible insofar as they do not demonstrate “super powers” or
magic. Talk to your teacher if you are unsure if your apocalypse will be
appropriate.)

Create
your apocalypse as an important
or cautionary speculation.
 The end of the world must have
been avoidable,
and contain a warning for readers such as being wary of technological autonomy
or too much government oversight, avoiding war at all costs, or taking better
care of the environment.

Your
story must have a title.
Good titles are short and relate to the theme of your story.

Also,
include a soundtrack for
your story. Provide the title of the song you chose and the artist’s name. If
you can, include a link to the youtube video where I can listen to the song.

Before
your story begins, you must write an abstract for your apocalypse. This
should function as a theme song or an overarching narrating voice might on a
science fiction film or television show: it should explain necessary backstory. Think of
the opening crawl before a Star Wars film.

project. (Attached Below) 

Your
abstract should be about one paragraph long and must:

· 
Explain what caused the
end of the world (World War IV, tsunami due to global warming, genocide of
humans by robots, etc.)

· 
Explain what happened in
the wake of the apocalypse (mass starvation, spontaneous violence, cannibalism,
military rule, etc.)

· 
What sort of people
survived and how? (Speak generally. We will meet your specific characters in
the story.)

· 
How long has it been
since the apocalypse when your story begins?

Your
abstract must be written in an omniscient narrative point of view. It should
appear at the beginning of your story, in italics.

Your
Story:

The story
itself must begin in
medias res
. This means that the first sentence of your story
must be the introduction of the problem facing your characters. Your plot must
include an inciting moment, three complications (rising action) that build on
one another, a climax, and a resolution.

Your plot
must begin, develop, and resolve in no more than one day for the characters.

The main
focus of your story will be on characterization and
developing the identity of
your characters. Your story will focus on two characters only. (You may have
other characters present, but each side character can have no more than one
sentence of dialogue.) Within
your plot, neither character can die.

Your two
characters will experience different effects on their identity as they
face the trials of the apocalypse. One of your characters will grow (develop
their identity in a positive way, as John from Babylon), and one of your
characters will experience a loss or destruction of their identity over the
plot (as does Eckles or Gregor).

You will
be graded on using all types of characterization:
character’s appearance, dialogue, thoughts, actions, and how other people react
to them.

Reflection:

After
your story finishes, include a writer’s analytical reflection. This should be
four paragraphs in length.

Paragraph
1:
 Summarize your plot. Identify your plot points: inciting
moment, three complications (rising action) that build on one another, a
climax, and a resolution.

Paragraph
2:
 Discuss the character whose identity improved.

· 
What personal or
emotional struggles did the character have before the day of the story?

· 
Describe their identity.
What was important to them? What values, beliefs, or abilities made them who
they were?

· 
Describe the events that
changed them. What decision did they have to make in response to the inciting
moment or throughout the plot?

· 
Describe their identity
at the end of the story. How have they changed? Why are they stronger or
happier after the story’s conclusion?

· 
Include two passages
from your story to support your points.

Paragraph
3:
 Discuss the character whose identity disintegrated.

· 
What personal or
emotional struggles did the character have before the day of the story?

· 
Describe their identity.
What was important to them? What values, beliefs, or abilities made them who
they were?

· 
Describe the events that
changed them. What decision did they have to make in response to the inciting
moment or throughout the plot?

· 
Describe their identity
at the end of the story. How have they changed? In what ways have they lost
their way, given up, or otherwise become weaker?   

· 
Include two passages
from your story to support your points.

Conclusion: Compare
or contrast your plot, apocalypse, or one of your characters to one of the
stories we read in this course.

· 
Identify at least two
significant ways that your story is similar to or different from the story from
the unit.

· 
Use at least one quote
from the unit story to support your point.

· 
Use at least one quote
from your story to support your point.

This
essay should be between four
and seven pages in length
 (1000­-1750 words). Your final
draft should be saved and submitted as .doc or .pdf file. It should be in 12-­point
font in Times New Roman.

This
is a culminating project for a Speculative Fiction Unit so I am hoping to get someone who will be will to do both and expand on this paper in the next week.
