Welcome to Unofficial Literary Challenge #42: "Winter of Doom!"Prompt 1: "Face the Kramp'Ihri" from @hawku001x
Prompt 2: "Good Ones Go to Heaven, Bad Ones Go Everywhere" from @patrickngo
- The ancient tradition of Terran Winter Celebrations is such a festive and playful time less the demonic interference of Earth's own mythological Krampus fused with the demons of the Klingon Empire. Your Captain, participating in Q's Winter Wonderland, is suddenly pitted against the fearsome Kramp'Ihri, a gruesome mashup responsible for kidnapping Gingerbread folks. How does your Captain fare against the massive Gift Stealer, its switch and its loyal minions?
Prompt 3: "Now Listen Here, Captain" from @damzelltrill
- An Academy student your Captain has sponsored has gone off the reservation in a big way-- It could be partying, smuggling, honor code violations of some kind, something... And as the sponsor, your reputation in Starfleet is placed at risk. The Admiralty tap you to reel the kid in and find out what set them off, and possibly to find out how to undo the damage they've done.
- Every Captain has someone they will stop and consider what they have to say no matter how crazy it sounds: Picard had Guinan, Janeway had Tuvok, Sisko had Dax and Kira, Archer humored T'Pol, as did Kirk to Spock. Write about a time your person came to you. Did you heed their advice or blow them off? How did things turn out? Did they say "I told you so?"
As usual, no NSFW content.
