Immortals must find it disgusting …

By Flyss. September 12th, 2010

Another installment is up, with the ungentle title of “Poisoning Myself.”

It begins with Janice and Blair jumping on a train at Denver Union Station. Stephen will shortly post on the content. I want show you some photos so you can picture it. Also, the fact that we’re dealing with Immortals gives one an extra perspective, as you’ll see.

It’s a grand old building, but a security guard there told me a lot of the old pretty stuff is about to be torn out. Figures.

Here’s the facade:

A view of the reverse side, with train tracks visible:

Here’s a wide angle view of the old fashioned waiting room. It’s strangely bleak and empty in there. I felt lost, but in a lovely, nostalgic way.

Here’s another view, this one showing the entrance to the boarding area. Those wooden seats are wonderfully weird.

Here’s the decorated walkway down to the trains. Easy to imagine Blair and Janice sneaking down here to hop on a train.

But they’re going to rip all this out to put in a spanking new pedestrian walkway. That’s our disposable culture for you. We even dispose of monuments!

    Perhaps some do, but I would be willing to bet that not all would. We’ve already seen evidence of disharmony in their ranks. It would be my gut instinct that they are just as varied in thoughts and beliefs as we mortals, even though there are fewer of them.

    Merlin’s probably right on this one. There would be different views on it…

    I would have to say it’s a little disheartening though, not disgusting. The whole ‘out with the old in with the new’ motto always leaves a little bit to be missed. People miss how it was, or if they never got a chance to see it the way it was they feel a little disappointed that they missed seeing it before.

    Oh well, such is life. Gotta keep looking forward…
