In the Time of Rainbows


When the rainbows suddenly began appearing again in the skies above Manhatan, Secretary Bishop’s presidential campaign advisors took it as a very good sign.

The agents of Fringe Division knew better. Except that they didn’t exactly know why the rainbows had returned. Or the grass and the flowers. Or the overwhelming amount of dandelion seeds – blown in on the warm wind from North Texas, some said, where the smallpox outbreaks were also disappearing. But nobody really knew where it was all coming from.

Or why the amber was melting… or why the long-lost ambered could walk the earth again.

No one felt inclined to question miracles. But it all had to be investigated.
