Whimsy Above

Work Text:

Spinning Buildings

The world Above had towers that defied the gravity of the world Below, rising impossibly high in the near vacuum of the uppermost atmosphere, made their own gravity and air and water. They danced and spun as if to their own music, segments turning first one way, then another, pushed by cosmic wind or the people and things inside, or the whim of the tower Core, it was not for groundlings to understand. Airwalkers lived there, where their art and skill flourished, above the inexorable pull of the planet.

But the world Above was yet dependent on the world Below.
