I was starting to get all mopey with everything seeming to close, but Microcosms is looking very promising. They offer a character, a setting, a genre, but with a longer list you can pick from if their random number generator doesn’t tickle your fancy. There’s also an optional picture prompt too.
I missed the first week due to holidays, but here’s my entry for week 2.
Were were given character: doctor, setting: battlefield, genre: romance.
and the picture was:
Lieutenant Jeffers crawled over the trench, ill-trusting the Germans to respect a flag of truce, even though they also used it to gather their wounded.
As he wormed his way through the mud and detritus, he was viscerally aware of how his white coat must stand out. He couldn’t bear to waste time divesting himself of the garment, not when he’d seen Petersen go down.
Nearing the location, Jeffers called out, Kraut snipers be damned. Feeble movement caught his eye, and he corrected course.
“You’re a dashed fool, coming out here. There’s nothing to be done.”
“Quite so, ” he said, wrapping Petersen in his arms one last time. “Hush.”
