For those of you who enjoyed my answer to the first challenge, challenge #2 has been issued! I’d like to stipulate that anyone who likes to write can join in with our challenges — in fact, I ENCOURAGE anyone who likes to write to join in. Let’s start a coalition, eh? There needs to be more good free fiction in the world.
Challenge #2: Take one element from the periodic table and include it in a short story. Special challenge: don’t make it a scientific story. There are several ways that this can go to keep it out of the science realm. EDIT! Make it a third person story.
