Wow! I've never been the one to start one of these threads before, but here goes... 

Title:
Rise and Set, and Rise Again

Synopsis:

A chance friendship with a high school student causes her to rethink her position.



Congratulations to you all for making R3. Best of luck!

Find the Light

Sole survivor of a virulent plague, Carika ritually prepares her cremates on the mining station for their last resting place in the sun. 

Edited to add: I chose science fiction as my genre (probably obvious from the synopsis).

I'm wondering if we will have many stories posted this round. I think it's possible we'll only see a very small number of the 80--doesn't seem like many folks in this round are in the forums.

I would say my story's genre is kind of Drama / General Fiction.
