To Love Somebody That Death Can Touch

Genre: Sci-fi/drama

Eli has preserved his late wife’s brain so he can visit her in the Dream-Simulator, a neuro-holographic technology that allows grieving family members to see their loved ones after their passing. He goes back over and over again, trying to make peace with her death.

Now to pace relentless circles until the forums open up...

Mine isn't sci-fi, but we went similar places with this!

Mine is drama...excited for Wednesday and seeing what everyone came up with!

Of Naked Exams, Jedi Knights, and One More Time

We all know dreams are born of memories, fears, and wish-fulfillment--but what we know and what we hope for are two very different things.



I know, pretty vanilla synopsis, but damn, those things are so irrelevant to good fiction.

Mine also has some overlaps with these! Good luck, everyone!

I wasn't really aiming for a particular genre, but ended up writing historical fiction... who knew?

Asleep, Awake

French chef Lazare Milhaud never stops creating recipes, not even when he sleeps. Consequently, when his subconscious speaks, he is far too busy dreaming up dinner to listen.

Historical fiction

Nicht Loslassen

Brief Synopsis: On her deathbed, an old woman dreams of the terrible day she and her brother were ripped apart before boarding the train to Auschwitz. She refuses to let go until they can journey home, hand-in-hand.

I can’t wait to read every single one of these — just from the descriptions I can tell it’s an awesome batch of stories. I’m a little worried because mine has a similar premise to several of the above, but I’m sure they’ll be distinct enough in the actual content.


Mine:

No Traveler 

Two sisters - one living, one dead - attempt to reunite in the dreamspace between worlds.

I ended up writing Fantasy. The Dream prompt told me to. Big smile Some amazing titles and synopses in this thread. Can't wait until we can share. Final rounds tend to be a little lonely.

On the Canvas of Dreams

The keeper of dreams paints the landscape of Anna’s subconscious journey, lived in parallel to her waking world. As they approach the End, will a latent memory ruin the final masterpiece?

I didn't know you had to give the genre when submitting. I wanted to add a question mark after science fiction on Submittable but refrained. LOL  I don't usually write it and it felt pretty bold of me with all the amazing science fiction writers in this contest. 

(editing my post like editing my FF: science fiction repeating 3 times. ha.)
(who let this woman on here?)

I wanted to add a question mark after I listed Historical Fiction as my genre. I was like, "Uh, historical fiction...surrealism?" LOL I just left it simply as historical fiction, but I definitely wanted to add a couple of more genres after it. 

Also, I think that's the first time they've added that part on the submission form (I made finals in Short Story this summer, and that wasn't on the form for the open genre).
