I too had the idea for my story almost immediately. I saw those stones and the peaceful sea shore and the idea of a place that seemed deserted except for the obvious clue that someone had been there. --- The ants --- those were an after thought, but I liked the idea of an intelligent race that was not recognized.

In your bedroom wardrobe...
Congrats @Jo Zebedee . Voicey as ever - now if you could just stay out of the challenges from now on that’d be lovely ;)

Many thanks for those mentions and especially:

Thanks to Hummus, Dan, Vaz, Alzoth, Jemima, Bertolli, Fleflaferbus, scaramouche, kalaedabang, calabash, singsong, Quetzalcoatl, Perrypingpong, salamifrog, stankeray, piffpaffpoof, and chorea for the votes. Sadly only the first three registered but I’m quite happy to give my win to Jo :p

I found a lump on my rib a few months ago and have been having those awful dreams where you try and remove it from your own body (in this instance trying to squeeze it out). That worked its way into the story. I wanted a world where the women go off to war and the men stay behind. Those whose love is too much to take the forced separation end up turning to stone. Also King Aegeus’ story always upset me as a kid hence the black flag.

Gotta go, David Lynch is banging on my door again. Such a pain!
