When a goblin tries to blow up a planet, he’d better remember what colour is the wire he should plug-in first. Should he forget, no problem!

GENRE
Science Fiction

LANGUAGE
French

SUMMARY
Azure is a short story about a little girl lost in a post-apocalyptic world, where rain is her worst enemy. It can destroy entire buildings and people wandering carelessly in the outside will probably never return. The only way to be safe is to find a shelter covered with ivy, which oddly is not affected by rain. But ivy tends to leave quickly the inhabited places, forcing people to constantly move from one building to another. The story begins when Azure’s mother doesn’t come back and the little girl has to move to the next shelter all alone.

Azure is available in Glitch Out #1, a revue published on the website Le Renard Loquace. You can read it for free here!
