fourandtwenty: (NS: alone in the wilderness)

I tried to explain to Aubrey exactly what about her current projects, while not post-apocalyptic, still remind me so strongly of what I consider "post-apocalyptic Americana".

It's the silences in between the explosions and the world-saving and the zombies and demi-gods and immortals. Not that there's nothing to do, just... life goes on, unobtrusively, underneath all this action, and in between, it's very profoundly felt, somehow, and that, to me, is part of the essence of the weirdfun genre that has developed (probably differently to everyone) since that first came up, to my knowledge, in regards to Unlined.

And I don't know if it makes any sense, but that's the best way I can put words to it, and I don't know if I could do it any better. It's post-apocalyptic settings, not the big cities and settlements, but little farms and communities, and all the unobtrusive LIFE that goes on in the face of so much loss.
