Advent Day 21: Hope (Writer's Choice)

Writing Challenges

Event details

This is our last Writer's Choice set of prompts for Advent season! That means you can tell us about a plot, a character, a worldbuilding element, or write us a story -- get creative and do whatever inspires you! Your theme is hope. You may use as many of the prompts below as you'd like to help inspire you. If you write fic, share it in the library and tag it with 'advent day 21' so I can find it. Otherwise, feel free to leave it as a comment here!

Like the other advent events, there's no hard deadline on this. Try to get it done December 21st, but if you need to do it early or late -- well, better to participate than not!

Keep track of all the Advent challenges here!

Here are the prompts:


“Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.” 
― Margaret Mitchell


“But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.” 
― Martin Luther King, Jr.

So these should be short stories under 500 words? Is that the point of these advents?

Only the Flash Fic Saturday prompts are "restricted" to being stories of 500 words or so. The other days they could just be a plot bunny, or a detail about a character, or something like that. If you peek at the events from the first week of the month you'll see some examples in the comments! :)
