Which one would you pick to write about @Jmack ? I'd go for the second one myself  write about a cyborg living there!

Since you claimed the second  ;) and the third doesn't show up on my iPhone, I'll take the first. A strange alien has crash landed on a snow bound Viking planet and is hiding on the rooftops from the terrifying humanoids.

Well in that case, let it be said that my cyborg would be a shrine attendant, working for the living god residing there, and his main job would be to go around on his shitty flying scooter to deliver or placate wards written by the god on pieces of paper or wood.  :P

Fixed the third for you, but still reckon your viking version of The Thing is a great idea. :p

that's a sweet series of photos, @Nora -- nice work.

i'd take the last one.  it's calling to me, asking for a blade runner / ghost in the shell mashup.

Love those kinds of pictures. We'd choose #4, and naturally write a story about turf wars between cats from either side of the street/tracks.  8)

A fantasy version of Mrs Dalloway would be my thing.

Please, please write that!

Though I am afraid Deckard would be a bit outmatched by Major Kusanagi. It wouldn't really be a fair fight...

Love all the pictures Nora and Henry, they have so much possibility. Nora your second one made me think of this in nowadays Hong Kong. Then I realised it was all so way off subject have put in spoiler so not to fill up page with irrelevant pics.

Spoiler for Hiden:


Then I remembered flying into Hong Kong before they built new runway and airport and the plane was so close to the old high rises that just before you landed you could actually see the washing and people on the balconies from the plane window very near.   :o At the time it didn't seem at all worrying and some of the actual streets then were often like your last picture.

Huh... This looks just like Paris.. But is there someone with a dragon's tail in the middle there? I'd go back to Paris if it were like this IRL!

Spoiler for Hiden:
Rue des Tuileries



Or rue de Rivoli


And you're right Lady Ty, it does. A lot of streets in Japan as well, especially in Tokyo, seem to be so crowded with signs and cables that the illustrations can look tame!

I truly knocked myself out trying this month, chef contests, circus acts, gladiators, who knows what, just didn't work for me. I even went back to try Mouse v Oberon and can't get past this doggerel

I belong to the Druid, Atticus my master
I'm Oberon the Wolfhound, nobody faster
Threatened by Angus Og and his Fianna
Then chased by Loki and Goddess Diana
Done defeated Thor an' ser'sly bad witches
But happiest with bacon and French poodle bitches

ABSOLUTELY TIME TO GIVE UP   ::) ::)
Good luck everyone who enters it is a good subject and will make great reading.
