Guardians of the Flame

Who are these little guys in the fireplace?  In reality, they are little metal statues with metal bars extending from their backs to support the firewood.  But...maybe...that's not the whole story?  What do you think?  Is there something more to them?  Write a little Flashy Fiction explaining how they got there or what they really do.

My soul was kissed...

I remember the first time I saw him.  His eyes went straight to my soul...and that was before we ever touched lips.  Soulmate he called me, and that we are.  Write about what this quote means to you.

Corn maze in Gloucester, Virginia
The corn maze.  A staple of farm country Halloween/Autumn celebrations.  Even knowing there's nothing lurking in the field waiting to do you harm, doesn't completely erase the feeling that the paths are closing in, that something is watching you.  Write a little Flashy Fiction about a trip through a corn maze or about unexpectedly finding yourself out in the middle of a corn field.

The dreaded furlough notice.  Write a little Flashy fiction in which your protagonist has been furloughed.  How does he deal with it?  What are his plans if it lasts a long time?  Be creative.
