"Something lives under the ground that pushes these things upwards. They grow barely faster than continental drift, but they are starting to effect the planet's rotation already, and we can't calculate what that will lead to. We can kiss our ideas about a space elevator goodbye, but then, maybe they can do the same thing. Eventually. If there are indeed no monsters down there after all."
A piece done over an old sketch that I thought held promise. I was initially inspired by a piece for Final Fantasy I had seen, but soon left that path.
