I want to hear a story set at some point in the future where sea levels have already risen and covered most of the continents creating a mainly water covered world. I would like the story of life, either on, under, or along side the ocean. Your story could be fantasy, horror, scifi, post-apocalyptic, utopian/dystopian speculative, environmental, steampunk, pirate-esque, or as realistic as you like - as long as it’s fiction, there is just no limit on the genre! The perspective you chose and the story you tell is entirely up to you, your story doesn't even have to be anchored to this timeline, or even humanity if you really want to push the boat out! I would like a fictional story set in the future featuring life on a mainly water covered world. This could be the focus of your story, or it can be the background setting in which your story plays out, let your imagination run wild!

Woo yeah! Water World! @calluna here, can you tell I have been feeling the classics recently? I had three ideas for this round, and another contest went a little close to, and then an entry last round got a little close to another, but don't worry, they remain on the list for another time, and very grateful for it being easy. Hopefully fate conspired in your favor, and maybe this hot summer has you all equally dreaming of watery drifting... and maybe a little speculative pondering down this very train of thought..
I really can't wait to see what you come up with for this one. It is one I have had on the list for list for a long time. I love these forward-looking ones, and in the end, I am very glad we landed on this prompt. Good luck! (Not that you guys need it, with your amazing creativity <3)
