For instance, in a number of different apocalyptic kind novels, the principle characters have already been getting ready for some kind of catastrophe. So when the catastrophe lastly hits, they only throw on their bug out luggage and survive comfortably whereas everybody else struggles. That at all times made for a terrific story.
