STORY IDEA #273: The Lift

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#273: The Lift

All over the world, random people are suddenly floating up and into the sky and disappearing. It's as if gravity has failed them and there's no logical reason as to why a person is chosen to suddenly float
up up and up until they disappear.

About a year after this starts happening, with people all over worried that the lift might happen to them, they notice something hovering out next to the moon. A second moon. Much smaller, but building gradually over time.
It's the bodies. Once they float on up there they gather and build into one big mound of space frozen bodies stuck to one another.
