My first idea was to do something like this, but with a mother and son! I’m glad I went in a different direction. You are great with writing drama and I wouldn’t have wanted to have a similar story against yours! Good luck!

This sounds so amazing!!

When the data cloud tried to reconcile memory and reality, it had always 

come up just short of real life.

Something similar sounding to this was my first idea. Something about the cloud location spoke to sci - fi off-world colonies. 

Good title too.

Look forward to reading!

So many amazing ideas! It'll be an absolute privilege to read the stories this round, and a terrifying honor to compete with them. Good job, all!
