I LOVE THIS CHALLENGE! A total throwback, Day 3 brings a classic game of MASH.
I themed my game on the typical dystopian story, using options from various scifi, fantasy and YA novels. I took a few liberties with the meanings of MASH too, forgive me. My categories were:
DYSTOPIAN CITY – The place I will spend my youth, until my awakening as the only one with the power to change the world
MAGIC – Which lovingly crafted magical system I’ll discover and use to break free from the chains of oppression
LOVE INTEREST – Which handsome rebel is going to steal my heart and distract me from liberating my people
PET – The loyal companion that will accompany me on my quest and probably die at the end trying to save me (still not over Hedwig, Jo)
I drew a swirl with six gaps and off I went to find my destiny!
So, in my very own dystopian story it looks like I’m taking down the patriarchy with Darrow, a bumblebee and some sweet sweet allomancy from the comfort of a magical forest. Yes. Actually does someone want to write that up for me? It sounds like something I’d very much like to read!
