I usually write cross-genre sci/fantasy stuff, but here, given an open genre, I went with straight literary drama.


In the Rising of the Sun

 

 

Synopsis: Six months after losing the man he loved, Steve looks for a breakthrough, and finds it in the clear waters of Crater Lake.

Thrice Three, and Thrice Again

A druid priestess seeks mercy from her goddess to avert foreign invasion. 


While it has a sort of fantasy feel we did have druids and we don't know all that much about their practices, so I just went with Drama. And really pushed the envelope on "undertaker"!

Here's mine!  Genre: Open (I went with Ghost Story), Undertaker, Sunrise


The Little Bird

            As an undertaker, Amanda tried very hard not to bring her work home with her, but it often had other ideas. Though she could lay the bodies of the dead to rest, their spirits weren't always so willing to sleep.

"To Be Set Free"

After confronting a terrible childhood trauma, Alex does what he must to be set free.

Drama/Psychological Horror

I turned this contest into a trilogy based around this character, Alex. Definitely wasn't planned, but it was interesting nonetheless.
