Prompt: …with Dinosaurs
Originally this prompt was going to be “Steampunk Dinosaurs” but I couldn’t find a picture I liked. So let’s explain what we’re looking for here: no matter what you send, there must be dinosaurs. Why? Because dinosaurs are awesome. Genre bending/mixing is encouraged. Humor is highly encouraged. Send me something outrageous. Give me T-Rexes in F-14s. Give me steampunk pterodactyls ferrying people around in the 19th century. Give me stegosaurus heavy artillery during the Civil War. That scene where Wash plays with dinosaur toys on Firefly is good. The scene where Doctor Who rides a triceratops around a spaceship is better. I don’t care, just so long as it’s “…with Dinosaurs.”
P.S. – If you send me a highly emotional tale of a grieving mother mulling over her son’s toy dinosaurs after his funeral I’m sure it will be beautiful, but you’re absolutely missing the point.
