Hey Gauntleteers, I’m back crowdsourcing the miscellany for Codex – Flame. This miscellany is called “Three Dozen Separated Lovers.” Submissions need to be a single sentence, or 2-3 short sentences. By submitting here, you’re agreeing to let us use it (you’ll get a credit on the issue). We’re looking for evocative things; the purpose of the miscellany is to inspire the reader.
Here are some examples:
“Magda Borland is accustomed to years alone, but the famed Captain Ulrika ‘The Bull’ Voss is long overdue. She’ll pay handsomely for any news of her wife’s ship, or better yet, for help getting Captain Voss out of whatever’s befallen her.”
“Starcrossed lovers meet in the hours of dawn and dusk, when the Lords of Night and Day briefly share the sky before continuing on their eternal opposite courses. Gifts of morning glory and evening primrose adorn the makeshift shrines that pop up wherever someone seeks their blessing.”
“It’s unusual but not unheard of for multiple people to share the same chassis. The cyborg begging for assistance with the ransomware sequestering his partner’s data is new, though. His movements are hesitant and clumsy, one mind trying to remember how to control processes long shared.”
