Are a smorgasbord of Science Fiction and Fantasy topics:


From the front page today:
1. You die and go to Hell only to find out that you're the only person that has ever entered. Satan is clapping

2. Write a sci-fi story set in the Middle Ages, but it can't involve time travel.

3. The flat Earth society has started a cult that sacrifices people by throwing them off the edge of the Earth. You are their first victim.

4. All time-travelers have a common-place called the "Coffeeshop At the End of Time" where they can go get a few... minutes. They can all share it without problem so as long as they never speak of when they're from.

My personal favorite for Father's Day:
5. All of the "#1 Dad" mugs in the world change to show the actual ranking of Dads suddenly.

Nice spot!

1 is a story all by itself, no need for embellishment :)
2 is very good.
3 is very good but could be more interesting without the second sentence.
4 is very good
5 is brilliant.

I figure this can be a long running thread if people are stuck with ideas or something for stories we can post writing prompts just like reddit or just steal theirs.
