This is the Fabulous Moolah… don’t ask, I just found it on google.

Willkommen! So, my German is progressing apace. I can now say: Ich habe nicht Hunde. Hunde ist schlecht! Ich habe Katzen. Katzen ist Gut. Die Katze tragt einen Mantel. … …So, pretty much I sound like a German preschooler. And the A in tragt needs umlauts. When I learn the word for ‘poor’ I’ll add ‘poor cat’. Anyway, today is the day for a story challenge, and it’s time for my favorite story challenge. I’m going to give you a series of criteria including genre, theme, some character archtypes, etc. Your job is to write a story that includes all of the features required in the challenge. If you intend to post it here, please keep it short. However, the complexity of this challenge often requires a longer story.

Theme: Revenge gone Wrong

Genre: Speculative Fiction (i.e. Any kind of fantasy or science fiction genre) or Modern fiction

Setting: A large(ish) city

Character Archetypes:

1) A selfish aristocrat (and if you think we don’t still have aristocrats visit Conneticut)

2) A philosopher (who may also be a sorcerer or scientist)

3) An officer of the law (city guardsman, police officer, whatever)

4) A fair damsel (who might also be a professional wrestler… you never know with women these days)


1) A fortune in diamonds

2) A broken clock

3) A demon statuette
