Holy crap, only five more weeks to go!
Another random idea from a random idea generator. The story seed was "A fuzzy biologist accidentally destroys a set of mystical objects and gets a fungus." Spoilers!
Playing around with the generator, I was disappointed I didn't get "A cute cab driver decides to destroy the kingdom with the kingdom." The best ideas always begin with that "WTF" reflex.
Anyway, ca 2500 words. Computers and dying suns, rubies the size of your head and lots and lots of moss.
