The Other Earth

Estimated reading time โ€” < 1 minute

Remember this –

Should you ever despair of life so much that you want to die, you have the means at hand and yearn to end your life, you have written a suicide note to those you will leave behind and you are prepared to die… at that moment, stop.

Get a pair of scissors. Cut away at the note until you end up with a piece of paper in the shape of a key. Go to a door, any one will do. Push the paper key forward and turn your hand as if unlocking an imaginary lock.


The lock is real. Open the door. There you will find it. The other earth. The one that awaits to replace this one when it dies. That death is inevitable, but in the meantime the other earth will belong to you.


Be warned: the other earth is very different from this one.

Please wait...

  1. This reminds me of a song…..*bursts into tone deaf singing*

    I could live there, for sure. It cannot be worse than this place. Even if you are getting sodomized by Satan himself. It definitely has to be more chill than the devastation Trump is about to cause.
    Fucking AMERICA.
    *fashions origami key*
    I’m out.

    Damn that was some good weed.

  2. This was an interesting pasta, but it lacked detail. Very believable because of the vagueness. Perhaps, if it had described this “other Earth” more, a little, just a little, it would be even better than it is. Also, the author’s writing skills are rather favorable. Would definitely eat again.

  3. I chose to enter . . . . I chose to turn my paper-key – though I did not construct it from a suicide note. I instead wrote “Don’t Wanna Live” on the key AFTER I cut it from the paper. It was a shoddy key, but it did the job . . . I think.

    When I went through the door, I instantly felt a connection with the energy here. This is the Red Earth. I belong in the Red Earth. Self-inclined intellectuals with a strong spirit do well here. I feel it.

    1. Instant change from matter to anti-matter! We’d be life-form made of anti-matter and we wouldn’t even have cells! *-* Come to think of it that sounds super-awesome to me.

  4. The ones who are closest to you are the ones who get hit the hardest. The weather gets ugly, life gets rocky, and you start looking for threats, trying to figure out who is responsible for your problems, thinking that somebody over in the next room is why your life has turned to shit.
    But lives just turn to shit
    But another worls sounds nice but i wonder if you can come back

  5. i don’t know, but the warning made me think the other earth is worst and dangerous, i think i prefer to die, at least i would have other spirits to talk to…

  6. So wait, what happens if you despair of the “Other Earth”? Can you cross back?

    I’m thinking of purchasing a luxury villa in the Other Earth, for every August.

  7. @strange: I liked you comment more than the story itself, good on ya mate :D

    @moondo: You have a good question, candlejack seemed to know what he was talking about and i want to know what he meant, but you stoppe

  8. It feels better at first, for a while at least…it’s more free, the beings here are less inhibited.

    Everything looks identical too, but…

    It has a different feel to it. With freedom comes…isolation. The things here are much more cold. Their smiles are wider, but also emptier, less real.

    I wasn’t even feeling suicidal; not in the old world anyway, I was just bored and looking for a new experience. But this new one, is starting to wear on me.

  9. The vague threat in this one is nice. It lets you imagine that maybe the other world is better, but since it seems like a warning, it probably isn’t. Maybe it’s a lot worse. I’m imagining a world covered with sentient black vines, for some reason o_o

  10. I dunno about you guys but I like it here on the other side. There’s all the porn and beer and candy and hookers you could ever want? Oh, and there’s that *cougheverytwentyminutesyougetrapedbyhitlerwithasteakknifecough* but who cares, right?

    *head explodes*

  11. but…WHO WAS EARTH?

    nah, seriously though…if i don’t like this earth, y wud i bother with another…kill urself and be done with it!

    or cheer up emo kid!

    that is all

  12. Haha.
    Now the other earth is completely fucked.

    There will be McDonalds popping up all over this new world.

    OH SHI-

  13. aww you douchbag, I was enjoying the fact that people didn’t know I existed. Now they’ll be popping out of everywhere.

  14. Phone, shhh, no-one was supposed to know about that yet.:P

    I have enought trouble without little pissants trying to summon me through Hebrew rituals.
