Reminder: Do not post links to your story until you get the official confirmation email from NYC Midnight (which will likely come Wednesday).

In the meantime, now that the deadline has passed, you can post your titles and synopses. (Please also post your group, genre, subject, and character prompts.)

Here's mine:
  • Group: 30
  • Genre: Ghost story
  • Subject: Paralysis
  • Character: A butler

Through the Darkest of Stars,
Toward the Cruelest of Fates

A troubled nurse confronts his past and future while serving in a dark manor on a far-away moon.

Not that I was staying up waiting for this thread to start or anything...

Heat 10: Drama / visiting hours / a fast food employee

Title: “We Are the Waiting”

Synopsis: It’s unsettling how comfortable we’ve gotten, how we know better than to run directly to the hospital as soon as we get the call. How instead we just...go about our day the best we can.

Kiss-Kiss

There’s something for everyone in beautiful Vermont, where mom and dad can hit the slopes while grandma takes the kiddies on a maple orchard tour, complete with sweet treats! Best of all, there’s absolutely no chance of contracting airborne leprosy and turning into a were-armadillo!

The Kill Your Darlings Abattoir is a bit on the nose,

will it make a satisfying story?
