"The fifth chamber was darker than the others. A canopy of flat gray clouds painted the cylinders upper atmosphere, cutting out half the robe light. Beneath the clouds was a Wagnerian landscape of barren mountains, resembling ragged lumps of anthracite mixed with dark-rainbowed hematite. Between the mountains were rusty abyssal valleys, cut by waterfalls feeding into quicksilver rivers. The mountains toward the middle of the chamber floor were startling in their contortions-arches, giant rugged cubes, broken-tipped pyramids and causeways of irregular slab steps.
What in hell was this? she asked.
A kind of open pit mine, we think. Our two geologist’s-you met Robert Smith, hes one-speculate that when the chambers were hollowed out, the fifth wasnt finished off. They left it for raw material. And the Stoners used it. These are the scars.
Perfect for fans of old horror movies, Patricia said. Cant you just see Castle Dracula here?"
I did not have the chance to read the book, which was really unfortunate. I had school for most of the time, and could not afford the time. So I had to take one of the chapters provided by the “inspiration” -section of the contest. But I think this piece is quite close to what I felt when I read the description.
I imagined something of “Exploring of the 5th chamber” and what it might have been like to walk through one of those valleys.
Awesome work. Weird place.
Congratulation with final pic.
