She sits in quiet contemplation.  Never moving.  Always pensive.  Write a little Flashy Fiction about the inspiration for this statue or about the thoughts and emotions it inspires when you look at it.

Five Multi-colored Rings

I wanted to use the Sochi Games logo, but, as it is rather uninspired, I found a picture of the rings with some of the world flags behind them to use instead.

It's that time again.  Time for (many) of the nations of the world to come together and compete in athletic events in a spirit of fairness and peace...hopefully.  This prompt is really open other than sticking with a Winter Games theme.  Write a little Flashy Fiction about the Olympics.  It could be about training for the games, participating in them, watching them, plotting to cause destruction during them, thwarting terrorism at the games, or whatever else comes to mind.  Maybe it's a story that is only linked to the Olympics because somehow the games or someone's preparation for it affected their life.  Stretch the scope as needed, only be sure to keep winter and the Olympics in there somewhere.  Have fun!
