Way back at the beginning of August, I opened a prompt call on fishing!
Since then I have written, well, a number of stories to the prompts provided.
If you would like another continuation of any of these – a) see the Want More; currently three people are owed continuations; b) get the comments up! The current goal is 9 – the first two posts (original or continuation) to get to nine total comments (or, say, 14 or 16 or 18 if they’ve already had one continuation written, i.e., 9 more than the first continuation cost) – will get a continuation.
The *️⃣ marks stories who have gotten a continuation.
The Stories So Far
Clean…? The plant offered clean energy. Cleaner might’ve been more accurate. The fish living downstream of the runoff might’ve said something different entirely. This is set in the universe/city/power plant featured in Saving the Cult (If not the World), a ‘verse tagged Organization.
Cleaning Up – The problem begins Austin not understanding what’s going on with the plant. Then it gets worse.
Seek And…? Long long ago, I began a story about a woman lost in a blizzard and ending up in a different world. This story peeks in on her life, as she fishes for answers and is caught in turn.
Fresh Fish The city of Scheffenon, on the North Sea high on the edges of the Empire, is known for many things. But one thing that it is not known for – at least in modern times – is fish, or at least fish pulled from the North Sea. They do not fish, not as such, on the North Sea. (Things Unspoken ‘verse)
The Freshest Fish – Eliška goes fishing for information about the fish in the North Sea. She finds mostly more questions – and some gods to fish for, as well.
Unplumbed Depths – Fishing in Minecraft can get you some strange results. This fictional view of the fishing strips out a lot of the blockier elements but does leave a fishing pole with, perhaps, a little too much Luck enchanted into it.
(In the Depths coming soon)
…A Break…? – Jess works security at The Facility, a place where science which nobody calls mad (in the hearing of the scientists) is perpetrated. It’s a really good job. But sometimes, your friend up in the top end of things asks for a favor…
Breaking Out – Jess didn’t think she’d find herself saying okay, next year, we’ll… with these interns, but then again, she didn’t expect to feel so protective of them, either.
The Night Fishers – they only fished at day. Murph was about to find out why.
Fishing Day – She should’ve done something better with the body, but it was her fishing day, and she didn’t want to be interrupted.
Biting – She needed this fishing day. On the other hand, the police were far too worried about this body…
Fountain Fishing – There’s nothing alive in this abandoned mall except Abby, Liv, and the fish in the fountain. Not even a protein bar. So going fishing seemed like the reasonable idea, right?
Robotic – How do you get away from a robot? Abby and Liv had tried any number of things in the neverending Mall On Infinite Earths. This time, they find something that seems to work…
