If you were wondering how it is that the Universe can be saved from flying apart at the seams, then I've got the story for you. Actually, Coffee Cramp Magazine
has it. It's called Chaos, 2099
. In the story, a man with a wrench works feverishly to counteract the forces of Dark Matter and Dark Energy which will, according to scientists, tear the Universe asunder... In a few quadrillion years.
Read it. I like the story. Fair warning though - for whatever reason the formatting is a bit off.
