Oh goodness! Not having a theme actually makes it more difficult for me to come up with something ("I'll take 'choice paralysis' for $100, Alex").

Okay. Hm.

*think ponder ponder think*

More about Horace the porcupine (Aldornia and Zenobia)?

More about Maryam the Steamsmith?

How is Terramagne handling Pokémon Go? (That's cool; the dictionary in my browser automagically added the accent in Pokémon.)

For some reason, the word Pokémon is making me think of fishmongers. I have no idea what setting they belong in, though.

Creamsicles are yummy.

How do rocks get *into* shoes, anyway? And once they get in, why don't they get out the same way?

Your creamsicle prompt inspired the free-verse poem "A Life by What We Give." Ansel introduces Turq and Skippy. There is frolicking at the skatepark, and then delicious food. A little angst, because of their respective life challenges, but mostly fluff.

Re: Poem

Having seen the prompter copy, I absolutely love the turn of phrase, "I would kill myself to death." Lovely poem; thank you!

Re: Poem

I have been using variations of that for years. In this case, I saw it in a description for one of the tricks I was citing (combining a firecracker with a kickflip) and that made me think of including it here. :D
