'Islands' is a story that I developed in 2012 that is focused on a world where the land has broken up into multiple islands. The smaller ones are free-floating on the water and can be steered like ships. The characters in the story are a part of two different island societies, those that live on stationary islands and those that live on the moving ones. The stationary islanders tend to think very poorly of the moving ones, assuming that they are unwieldy, dirty people. However, after his island breaks apart, James is rescued and taken in by a family of 'moving islanders' and learns that they are not what he grew up learning they would be like.
