Flash Fiction Challenge: Subgenre Frankenstein

Last week’s challenge: “Random Story Generator”

This week’s challenge is a fun revisit to the idea of mashing up two different subgenres.

So, look at the list of 20 subgenres below.

Pick two randomly (d20 or random number generator).

Write a ~1500 word flash fiction piece based on that world.

(You’ll note I’ve upped the word count a little bit. FOR FUN WHEE.)

Post at your online space.
