RE: Finish The Story Contest - Week #57!
That fuzzy squiggly knows how to write an ending i just can't bear to miss out on. (I mean you all do really, but shhh puns haha) Shiro has one form, and one form only. And i was so happy this opening made it possible for Shiro to be that <3
This was another opening that set up so much to be answered, and left it loose enough for those answers to take the story many different ways, there is a real art to these opening, not just in telling a wonderful story that shows off your beautifully intricate and varied writing skills, but that provides a gift to your fellow writers in something that is peppered with loose ends that could go anywhere, words with such different possible meanings that allow for box pushing interpretation, and a setting with just the perfect balance of detail and blank space, every week we manage something that just too alluring not to finish. The bananafish is soaring with such a skilled sextet, providing us with weekly prompts that all reach this impossible bar, and it shows in the endings!
not sure this one should really count (edit: because i more reexplained the last bit of the opening than ended it lol so i understand if it doesn't count as an ending and also get if saying that i wasn't sure if it counted disqualified me and sooooo not panicking now hahaha) but it was plenty of fun, and a bit of a fever dream, thank you for this wonderful opening and being able to join in
