Nine days left until the end of the universe. After that, it was very likely that everything inside it would cease to be. But what was there to do until then? Surely, once the deadline came, any and all accomplishments of humanity would be wiped away, thus making glory and acclaim irrelevant. What would people do?

Or would they sit back and wait for the end to come?
