This story takes place on a fictional planet called the Planet of the Apes, and is about an ape named Zira who has been forced into servitude as a house slave. The Planet of the Apes was a popular film series that took place on this planet (originally set in ancient Rome), which had a lot of similarities with Earth.
In this tale I wanted to explore what would have happened if Zira and her family were enslaved after a failed rebellion instead of being killed by a nuclear strike as they were in the movie. What happens if the apes are forced to live under a new system of slavery that has been imposed on them from without rather than within? How would they respond to it?
The answer I found to these questions is not pretty.
