Welcome to Monday! So, this is not your story challenge today, though feel free to work it in somehow. Something that I’ve been thinking a lot about lately is the question: what is justice? What do we mean when we use this word? For Plato, justice was one of the virtues, and he saw it as a right ordering of the soul. A person is just when his rational soul (the sources of wisdom) leads, his spirited soul (the source of courage) defends, and his appetitive soul (the source of temperance) provides controlled labor. In the Christian scriptures justice often seems to reflect the Old Testament Law. The people were just when they obeyed the law by caring for the land, caring for one another, providing for the needy, defending the weak, punishing the guilty, and worshipping God. Justice can also refer to right action defined by some non-legal standard. It’s a complicated topic. Anyway, you’re here for a story challenge. So, in case you haven’t done this challenge before, I’m going to post a picture. Your job is to write a story about what is happening in said picture. Feel free to flesh it out some, to add things to the picture (you’ll probably have to with this one), but make sure that your story is actually about the picture that I post. For example, if I post a picture of a dart competition in a bar, don’t write a story about slavers selling mermaids. If I post a picture of a sorcerer casting a spell at the top of his tower, don’t write a story about a fist-fighter competing in the ring. So, no that you’ve got a good concept of what your doing, here’s your picture. Remember, if your going to post a story here, keep it under 500 words. If you want to post a longer story on your own blog, feel free to post a link to it here.

  1. The maggots had evolved. No longer content with fouling the distant jungles of the southland, they’d fashioned crude weapons of wood and metal, lest they allow one solitary place to remain beyond their excrement.

    As the great reptiles had long vanished, the fate of the entire world weighed on my wings. In glory days we’d have feasted on these paltry mammals in splendor, and with ease. But this new breed died with less grace, flailing blades, lashing out and discontent with their position in the eternal chain of things.

    No matter.

    Not one primate would endure the day. This I vowed. Wretched cretinous villains, thieves of lands and goods. Their insatiable appetites paled. I would crunch their bones to the marrow.

    They stank of fear and bacteria. Gushing sweat beneath their paper armor, they emitted such disgusting aromas. I could sense them for miles and miles. But today they would halt their advancing stench, never, ever to return. Today the encroaching horde would cease and desist.

    Die, apes. Eradicate every last one of you.

  2. This is a dragon fighting for it’s life.because it doesn’t want to be disturbed at all but you can make the Dragon mad when he does not now you at all so u can’t wen this battle that this Dragon done gave you in the first place because believe it or not soldiers have try to fight for their life a lot more than you think so it’s very dangerous to see a Dragon but if you do see one run for your life & hide yourself until it can’t see you anyway or anymore okay so be safe and don’t try it okay kids this won’t be for you at all okay that’s all for tonight kids goodnight & goodbye enjoy your story okay bye.
