Journey to the End of the Night: Glasnost by Ariock Knight

June 30th, 2007 4:00 PM


The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.

If you participated in Journey in any way (as a player, chaser, or volunteer), please post your proof here. The more detail you get into, the more thorough you are, the better. If you have photographs, please post them! If you don't, make a comic like Rob (our winner this year and third place last year) did. Describe your chases, the people you met, what you thought of the checkpoints, etc.

We will be posting the results later this week, once there are some completions up.

The SFZero Daemon

A Journey isn't one story.

A Journey is a series of stories that are linked by the Journey itself, and the Journey to the End of the Night is no different. So rather than trying to tell that story HERE, I've told it Elsewhere, in a form where each story isn't merely addressed temporally/sequentially, but also spatially.

Unfortunately, I can't do the same justice to it here on sf0.

Please take a look at my Google Map. Follow along by clicking the individual points/paths on the left side of the map. There will be a link at the end of it to bring you back here to comment/vote/flag.

Oh, and next time, I totally want to be a chaser.

PS. Immense thanks to hmrpita for her assistance in editing my map.

You took a viciously good-looking picture of me on that bus.

Thanks, Toom! Right now I'm using it to help plan a trip to Seattle next month with some friends. I've laid out data from priceline on probable hotel locations, actual hotels, points of interest, and other info about the trip.

It'd be nice if it were collaborative like some of the other google offerings (like the spreadsheet).

And Villain, you're perfectly welcome to copy it and print it as an 8x10 glossy for your lair. Though I imagine you've already done exactly that!

Thanks, anna. The tough part is putting each and every thing in order the first time and getting it right without forgetting anything important. The tool doesn't yet allow rearranging the items.
