Okay, guys, I have to say this was a great deal of fun for me. Some of the story suggestions were perfectly wonderful, things I wouldn’t have thought of myself but which were terribly obvious as soon as they were suggested. Obviously not everybody can win the anthology, but *many* of these ideas will, I think, end up as stories. Thank you all! Hee hee hee!
There are exceedingly moderate spoilers behind the cut, but I’ll put ‘em behind the cut because they’re spoilers at all. ( Collapse )
But the winner is blythe025/blythe025, who said I would love to see a story told from the point of view of a priest.
For some reason this idea really caught me. Possibly because I like the priest in the Negotiator trilogy so much, but somehow there’s just a real romanticism to that idea for me. I actually feel like I could build a book around the idea of a priest dealing with the Old Races, though I’m already terribly torn on *when* I would set that story. Or whether it would have to be a longer story, a series of its own, just trying to deal with the religious and spiritual connotations of the Old Races’ existence, from a Western theology’s point of view. I’m just, yeah. Utterly enamored of this idea. So, Blythe, if you will email your snail mail address to email@example.com, I will get that ARC in the mail for you!
