To mark this significant anniversary, your tributes are getting together for a low-key dinner event in the city of Bath—just the eight of them in attendance—in order to catch up and commemorate their shared experiences.
Your task is to write a short story detailing the hour or two before the event. Perhaps your tribute is in transit, or has arrived early and is wandering the streets, or is waiting in the restaurant to see if others arrive. Whatever the physical reality of your tribute, use this time to write your tribute’s thoughts and reflections.
Try to answer the following questions through your narrative:
- What has your tribute been up to in the past ten years? Perhaps he took part in the war. Perhaps she tried to wipe the slate clean and moved to a small town in the north.
- Has your tribute kept in contact with any of the others? Perhaps she is nervous about meeting old friends or enemies. Perhaps he is commuting from the Highlands with a fellow tribute with whom he has become fast friends.
This will be your final task, so try to make it your best yet! If you have any questions, or need any more information to go on (regarding the war, the dinner, or anything else), please ask! If you’d like your tribute to create a ten year history with another tribute, send their writer an ask (if in doubt, it’s probably me, or I can send you their info).
You have all been absolute pleasures and marvels to work with and I hope you’ve enjoyed the story so far!
Your task will be due Next Week Sometime, by the weekend at the latest, if you please.
Here is an example post.
