Microfiction: Atticus Finch and Fred Flintstone Walk Into a Bar

Happy Monday – here are a couple of Microfiction posts to get your week started. First up, the VR technician who gets trapped in virtual worlds: “You are a VR maintenance worker, tasked to jump from realm to realm, making sure everything runs smoothly.

Next up! I read this prompt and the words started pouring out: “When a fictional world stops receiving new content, (sequels, new issues, episodes, games, etc.) the world slowly breaks down. You provide a refuge for the now homeless fictional characters.” I treated it as an opportunity to take a bunch of famous characters and bounce them off each other. Hope you enjoy it!
