This first vignette in the Betweentimes series is “Best Foot Forward” in which Hyrhyn is challenged for being insensitive (what, Hyrhyn? No!). A short piece about trauma, memory, and moving forward as our survivors take tentative steps in the new world they find themselves, immediately after the events of Afterlands: After the Harrowing.
Betweentimes are just slices-of-life about tossed things, lost things, and making the best of bad situations. They are presented on this website, always free to download. If you are new to Afterlands, it might help to familiarize yourself with the characters and events of the previous stories first.
