CW006: "Catacombs"

Designation: CW006

Common Term: The Catacombs

The Catacombs are the domain of the Grandfather. It is within these stone tunnels that He houses His books and His knowledge. Great spiders roam these passages, and when the Grandfather requires more books for Him to record knowledge in, these spiders spin webs of the greatest silk, and from that silk, pages are formed and bound into tomes.

NOTE: About a month after I became Gifted, I woke up in my room in the middle of the night and felt a cold draft on me. I found that there was an opening in my wall that led down into a long, dark tunnel, even though my room was on the second floor and the wall in question had nothing on the other side of it other than the outside world. This, I knew, was an entrance to the Catacombs. I walked, barefoot, through those hallways. I saw the spiders ("spider" really does not do them justice, but it is the best description I can give). They ignored me. I do not know how long I walked those halls, but eventually I began to grow weary, and desired to return to my room. The very next corner led me back to my bed, and when I turned to look back into the Catacombs, the entrance was gone. --SΣ


  1. You don't seem to be dead either...

  2. It's such a great shame, isn't it.

  3. Some time you should go back, I think you might find my books interesting if you can find them.
