"There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does." -John Greene, The Fault in Our Stars

----------

I wanted to start this story with a Once Upon a Time, but then again, this isn't one of those shitty fairytales with an always expected happy ending. Okay, maybe I'm that bitter, but can you blame me? Yes? Well, I used to believe in happy endings, you know? I was once a 15-year-old teen who go cray cray over Hollywood actors. I was once a 16-year-old girl who used to do everything to fit in the group - cheerleading, drama, music, sorority, name it. I was once a 17-year-old who had her first broken heart over skater guy. I was once an 18-year-old who craved for independence.

Well, that was before. Until all the chaos broke out.
