Some of the Nexus stories I wrote to build a feel for the setting were very short. This one might be the shortest.
My world is nothing but water. Except for the trees that grow out of it. So those of us who are civilized build on the trees.
We grow fungus that can live off the trees to support ourselves. I was quite surprised when I came to Nexus and found that people ate meat here; only the cannibalistic ship people do that in my home.
I still visit sometimes, as I have family there and climbing a tree is the only way I can really stretch my arms, but the gates there are kind of irregular.
Here in Nexus I'm a bartender, apparently the fungus we grow back home (and I grow in my basement) make a mean liquor. Keeps my customers happy.
