2064 a virus that was being studied in a secret lab on the west coast of the US gets loose, no one knows how, it races across the globe killing everyone who is in or has passed puberty. Within 3 weeks no one is left on Earth but the children.
Things fall into chaos and ruin. Fires burned out of control in the large metropolitan areas, leaving nothing where the old mega cities had been, but the rusting hulks.
The children did what they could to survive in a world gone terribly wrong. Many of them died resulting from various medical problems that, just months before would have presented no problem at all. Infections from scratches, appendicitis, the usual various childhood diseases took still more. Accidents became fatal with no one to rescue a lone child wandering the countryside often in search of food or others. Few remembered the old world or blocked it out due to the trauma endured as all they knew died leaving them to fend for themselves.
With no law and no adults to tell them what was right and wrong, to tell them how things were and what they need to do, they did whatever they wanted or needed to do to survive.
This story will follow three time periods. Each thread will cover approximately 50 year time frames.
The first is set from 2064 - 2114 after the virus the children called "it". This thread will be the stories of some of those that managed to survive to be teens and adults. This thread will follow their struggle to rebuild a world that has gone to ruin.
The second thread is set from 2238 - 2288 this begins 174 years after "it". This thread will tell the story of the societies created by Yesterday's Children. All manner of beliefs will spring up, from Tunnellers to Religious zealots. Warlords to Utopia's. Did a culture develop in a mall, a subway? Maybe a museum or a train station? What sort of society would you set up? Evil or benevolent?
The third thread is set from 2563 - 2613 this begins 500 years after "it". Societies have come and gone some thrived, some struggled to maintain, some died out or were killed off or enslaved. This is for the stories of the cultures, groups and societies that came out of the beliefs of Yesterday's Children and what became of them. What sort of society survived to thrive?
**This is based on what can be accomplished. There will be no paranormal essence to this story. The normal intuitive psychic abilities that we have today but nothing Jedi like etc. Superstitions, technology found or created that could appear as magic to more primitive groups, but no actual magic or ghosts, vampires, werewolves, etc.
