    Summary

    “A mysterious geomagnetic storm has brought your plane crashing down into the Canadian wilderness. How long can you survive?”
    Phil just wanted to take his family on a well-earned vacation.
    Now, he was stranded on an island without a soul in sight, and had to move on way too fast. If he didn’t, the extreme conditions and weirdly vicious wildlife would kill him first.
    Techno was too numb to think. The wind whipped in his face as the snowstorm raged on. He needed shelter, and fast.
    Wilbur took a step back. There, completely frozen, with a disgusting amount of blood around it, was a corpse.
    Tommy ascended the rope, and pulled himself up into the tower. He had the perfect vantage point, able to see the entire prison.

    DISCLAIMER!- This fic will be dark! The Long Dark has many aspects of brutal survival, and death is a common occurrence. Please make sure to read ALL of the tags, and every beginning chapter notes.

    hinterland, thank you for this beautiful game

    Summary

    The Long Dark AU.

    This was the second winter with his runt. It shouldn’t be different to any previous winters, even before Tommy came into his care. Not even when Techno had the last two seasons to familiarise himself with this part of the country and the lack of other people.

    Only that isn’t quite true.

    An unexpected encounter leads to two additional people taking sanctuary with him and Tommy.

    Technoblade doesn’t quite understand but he knows it in his bones that he could trust them.

    Summary

    Miska enjoyed the attention, especially the scritching around her ears and neck, but the very next morning she face-planted into the dirt patch out back they keep ice-free to help the crows dig up worms because, really, who has a mind to try to stay clean when there’s doggie fun to be had?

    Summary

    After the collapse of the dollar and the beginning of the global dominance of China and the yuan currency, Canada became even more dependent on America and is on the verge of default. In order to somehow save the country's economy, a huge number of Chinese migrants moved to live and work in Canada.
    Shang Qinghua, a young geologist who specializes in seismology, decides to come to the godforsaken Great Bear Island to measure the unique nature of the seismic instability there. He will face many trials that the cruel cold nature of the Canadian outback presents to guests, and he will make new, sometimes unusual acquaintances. Also, who is the author of the old letter asking him to "come back here again"? And what the hell are those lights in the night sky?!

    Summary

    A woman wakes up in a cold, empty, apocalypse. She cannot remember her name, so she gives herself one- Survivor. For she must survive.

    (PLEASE NOTE: This work is an experimental writing practice based around the Indie horror game The Long Dark, a narrated story built around my personal game play and current playthrough. No romance, no smut- just a story of a girl trying to survive.)

    Summary

    Before the story of the Long Dark. Before the auroras came to light up Great Bear Island’s skies. Before The Collapse. Before Great Bear Island was a booming region.

    There was a family known for high status and self-sufficiency. This is what brother and sister, Carlos and Mira, were told from when they could understand the concept of what that meant. They both went through the booming economy and saw Great Bear Island at its best.

    Now their parents are dead and leave Carlos and Mira in charge of the few communities that have stayed while the mainlanders leave them behind. With no help from the mainland and with colder weather becoming more and more of an occurrence, they must work together to withstand the challenges that Great Bear Island now holds.

    Carlos believes that they will lead with flying colors, but Mira believes their struggles are only beginning.

    ***This is a fanfic based on the lore of the Long Dark and the events of the Collapse and what happened to some of its residents (all from notes found throughout the world and what living residents say). Most of the characters are mine, but there are those tagged above that are not mine and therefore belong to Hinterland Studio.***

    Summary

    Jake park is roughing it out on Great Bear Island, the quiet apocalypse hits and changes his entire world. Not that it changed much, but it became so much more dangerous. Laurie was on a plane to observe the transport of her brother to a high security facility located in Blackrock on Great Bear Island, and Michael escapes said transport due to the quiet apocalypse. The Aurora changes how their entire world works. They will have to survive against the cold and the odds, along with many other locals left on the island decimated by quakes and neglect from the mainland.

    [Title inspired by the title of the song "The Lion's Roar" by the First Aid Kit, which also plays in the intro of each episode of the long dark, which I replayed the first two episodes twice to have an idea of where I wanted the characters.... anyways it fits the Jayers vibes imo as well -- https://open.spotify.com/track/7kiB2HEyVrW9EdpVeQqZSY?si=0675249284a34acf]

    Summary

    "Why did we need to leave the base we were at? It was perfect there. There was a ton of space and beds and it wasn't fucking cold, like everything else out here," a young blond man asked. The weight of his pack was digging into his shoulders and he could feel the tips of his fingers and his toes going numb despite all the heavy layers he had on.

    The young man and his family group were all out in the middle of nowhere. Nowhere being a snowy wasteland that the young man had lived in for his entire life. They were currently following what the older members in the group called train tracks that passed over a lake. The group was also almost an entire day away from the shelter they had called home for most of the winter.

    Summary

    A while ago, I wrote down some cool in-lore notes left behind for The Long Dark that I thought would fit in well with the ones already in-game, and then forgot about them. Quite some time later, I have decided to post them. (Then I updated them a while later! More info on this at the end of chapter 1)
    There is a cohesive lore here, but this is not your average story, you have to piece it together through what is revealed in the notes and journal entries.. These notes/journal entries are written by different in-universe people in different areas of Great Bear, found and collected. Enjoy!

    Summary

    Rodney knew they were breeding; at first (in the spring) because he spotted them picking through and flying off with the scrappy twigs that litter the ground where he and John saw and chop wood, and then (in the summer) because they were no longer gorging on their well-gotten gains from the back patch but cramming live worms into their beaks and flying off, the wriggling tails sticking out between their mandibles like plump, juicy tendrils.
