Life in Upworld is just as easy as it is short. Do your Duty. Take your Moan. Sex, drugs, sleep, and do your Duty again. If you're a smart Upworlder, you might even live long enough to learn the rules, but Upworld doesn't play fair, and you're always just one stupid accident away from a quick trip to the recycling tube.
So if you find that someone special, hold on to them for dear life, because chances are it won't last very long. When the inevitable does happen, how long will you carry your burden? Will you cling to that spark, or will you change the channel? Will you throw yourself from the highest peak, screaming vengeance at the gods that spawned you?
In Upworld, there is no easy answer.
