This Week's ARC Giveaway!




A Darkness Dwellers ARC goes to the first person to correctly answer the following question . . .

If you could pay a visit to ONE underground attraction, which would it be? (You can choose any subterranean site in the world--except the Shadow City.)

Please leave your answer in the comments section of the blog. (In this case, a correct answer is one that amuses me.) Good luck!

The catacombs in Paris!

With all the bones and skulls, it would be spooky, eerie, creepy....but an experience I would remember and treasure for a lifetime.

The caves and tunnels in Journey to the Center of the Earth. Even though they probably don't exist, it would be a lot of fun!!

I would probably want to visit the Seattle Underground, since I live near there, and also am fascinated by historical sites (as well as underground places.)

I love Kiki Strike!

I would want to visit the secret tunnels under some big government spying facility. let's face it, there are definitely secret tunnels under there. And findings would be quite interesting, no?
If that doesn't count, then the underground malls of Montreal- multiple buildings are connected by underground passageways, and I highly doubt that there isn't a secret room or two there.

Well, I get claustrophobic underground, so if I could choose, I wouldn’t choose anywhere… But if I was held at gunpoint and forced to choose I'd pick the Underground City in Montreal because it's got restaurants, movie theatres and shopping malls! :) I’m also more afraid of spiders, rats etc. than I’d like to admit and I figure since it’s still in use, it’s likely to be more hygienic than somewhere like the Shadow City. As you can probably tell, I’m a bit of a wimp…

The 1 train at Whitehall street. That would mean it's unfolded, and then I could easily get places from Staten Island again, and that'd rock. Or, alternatively, it'd mean that I could see what 20 feet of water in a tunnel looks like, and that'd be pretty cool too.

I'd want to go to the Kelvedon hatch secret Nuclear underground bunker because it's an underground bunker (perfect for zombie apocalypses) and Because the entrance to it looks so innocent (it's just a plain old house). Plus it sounds awesome.

I would go to the Catacombs of Paris. But not just any of them, the secret underground ones where only super-secret official military people can go. Decked out in a black ninja jumpsuit, complete with a mask, I would sneak along the bones, mapping out the tunnels. I would also, of course, take pictures. (My weakness.)

(Sorry if this posted more than once. My computer is a bit wacked.)
And, of course, find some secret entrances and tunnels, which I could then report to the Secret Agency of Secret Places, who would pay me a nice amount to keep my mouth shut.


And that, is why I would go to the Catacombs of Paris.

I would either want to go to Durinkuyu in Turkey and explore the tunnels there, or go through the sewer sysetem (I know, it might be iffy) under Canal street; I hear the architecture is wonderful, and rich with history.

The Paris Catacombs. There aren't any cohesive maps of it, making it a perfect place to set up my own secret society. *evil laughter*

I would probably want to go to an underground room under a museum, because i read somewhere that a museum usually has more stuff than it could display so maybe I'd find something cool??

The "booze caves" of Half Moon Bay where the rumrunners used to run rum.

That or the artistically carved statuary garden in that salt mine in Poland.

The grave of Saint Peter under the Vatican. Mostly because of a story I was told while working in the vatican archives. They originally didn't know whose grave it was and one of the archaeologists removed Peter's skeleton and put it on a shelf in his office. Unfortunately he died soon after and when a janitor found the body he just put it in the closet. 20 years later a new dig was started and a couple of the archaeologists were sure that they had found St. Peter's grave, the snag being that there was no body. A different janitor overheard them discussing this and came forward about how this skeleton had been floating around. I think it would be really cool to visit one of the most legendary near misses in history.

I would love to go to France,
But it's so darn far away.
Though if I may take a chance,
I would absolutely stay.

Piles of ivory skulls
An assortment of old bones,
Miles of caves are puzzles,
I want to search the unknowns.

'Cataphiles' will be my friends,
I will help them make their maps.
We can explore all the ends,
I hope the caves don't collapse!

To behold the catacombs,
Will amaze me to no end.
But the dead also have homes,
So watch out when you descend!

Our basement. It's the kind of place where you find a secret and forgotten entrance to the Seattle Underground, a portal to another world, or the headquarters for Spy Fairies Incorporated.

Atlantis - obviously atlantis is not under the sea but underground (that's why nobody has found it - they looked in the wrong places)
I'd explore the site with a team of chosen scientists and/or others e.g. you and Ananka Fishbein (who might well have already been there by than i guess)
When I'm old and tired, or when there is a good point in doing so, I'd sell the discovery to the world of sience and donate the money to a fund for the rescue of manatees.

The Labyrinth of Buda Castle in Budapest, Hungary. It has really cool architecture! Or the one under the West Norwood Cemetary in London England...the coffins seem interesting!

Alli Beard said...

The Catacombs of Paris and I would go to the movie theater they found there and hang out with the mole people.
