It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination.

Friday Ficlet: Nightmares

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a post like this, but I was talking to people over the last few days about guild-related RP and the subject of nightmares came up. Our resident villain has access to a lot of angry dead people – and a serious grudge and some back-dated hatred to go with it – and so various members of the Riders are getting nightmares and rather upsetting ghostly visions.

So here’s your ficlet prompt for today – 500 words is the usual cut off, remember, so keep it short and make your writing evocative:

Write a nightmare for your character, or a ficlet in which your character experiences a nightmare. It can be funny or serious, but try to get into the mind of the character you’re writing for/about. Remember that what makes a nightmare scary doesn’t have to be scary for /everyone/ – just for the person who experiences it.

Have fun, and leave me trackbacks or links to your fiction in the comments! I’d love to read what you come up with.

  4. Two days late, but I’ll take a shot at this. Hope you’ll forgive it not being related to any of my WoW characters.


  5. @Ian – of course not! These fics are not at all wow-specific. I’m glad it could provide a little spark of inspiration, regardless of the character.

  6. Channi’s nightmare has beenCross posted on Both the Wildfire Rider forums here:

    It’s longer than 500 words, probably, and it’s a little later than friday, but hey! I wrote something!

    Thanks for the challenge!
