The world’s tiniest dragon must defend his hoard, a single gold coin, from those who would steal it.

Suggestion: The dragon’s definition of “steal” is somewhat loose. It still allows the coin to be used and bartered and change hands–but on one condition: the dragon must be with it at all times.

They become a familiar sight in the marketplace.

“Here’s your change, ma'am. One gold piece.” The merchant holds out a palm, on top of which rests a tiny, brilliantly colored creature clutching a single gold coin.

“That’s a dragon,” you say dumbly. “One piece… and a dragon.”

“Yes.”

You cautiously reach out and attempt to take your change. You tug. It holds. You tug harder. The dragon lets loose a tiny, protective growl.

“Ma'am–no, ma'am, you have to take the dragon, too.”

“Sorry?”

The seller notes your dubious expression. “Not from around here, are ya?” They shrug. “Them’s the rules. Take the coin, take the dragon.”

They wait expectantly. Wondering how the world has so suddenly gone mad, you slowly, slowly hold out your hand.

The dragon perks right up. It scampers from their palm to yours with the coin clamped in its jaws and scales your sleeve with sharp little claws.

“Have a nice day, ma'am,” the merchant says. “Spend him soon, now, you hear? At another booth, if you can. He likes to travel.”

From its perch upon your shoulder, the dragon lets out a happy trill.

Bonus: the coin eventually passes to the rogue in a group of travelling adventurers. The dragon becomes the mascot of the entire group, and they lay out a small pile of coins for him to sleep on every night, clutching his coin like a teddy bear.

Two magicians made a blood oath when they were children that they would never harm each other. Now they are mortal enemies and have resorted to inconveniencing and annoying each other, knowing if they harm one another they’ll die.

It’s that old cliche again. You and your evil clone are cornered by your best friend with a gun, who asks you questions to find the real one. The problem: you have an absolutely terrible memory.

Except BFF would know you have a terrible memory, so the evil clone is in deep shit when they answer every question perfectly.

The creator of photoshop could have had a lot of fun if they did not tell anyone.

Writing prompt: in an alternate universe the power of Photoshop remains with a select few rebels, kept a closely guarded secret.

The “late 1990s” AU. :D

(My first lesson in Photoshop was when I was a junior or senior in high school in the late 90s. It was a revelation, but back then nobody had heard of it, few had access to it, and almost none of those who had access knew how to harness its full potential. How the world has changed.) 

But imagine the 1990s if no one knew about Photoshop except the developers and the havoc that could be wreaked on an unsuspecting world.

“Did you hear about the aliens that landed in Alabama?”

“No way that’s real.”

“It’s true - i saw a photograph.”

You walk in a room to find that the only way to escape is by writing a name of a real person on a piece of paper. This will kill that person.

“Ma’am, ma’am, you only need to write one name”

Real question: do we get to find out what other people have written down? Like I don’t want to waste my one chance to have somebody die of “natural causes” (aka magic paper death wish) if they’re already dead.

Also what happens if we tear the paper in half? Would that mean that we could write two names? Asking for a friend.

Wow. So many names. Many of them are frequently in the news these days. I would write so small.

As a kid, you were able to see other kids’ imaginary friends. You soon learned not to judge a book by it’s cover.

Aliens come to Earth, and it becomes a popular interstellar tourist destination because aliens really like Earth booze.

The whole of Earth is Space Las Vegas?

Fun ways to get fired

Someone who is desperately trying to get fired goes down this list, and all of them end up creatively backfiring so they get promoted instead.

You fall helplessly in love with the most amazing person in the universe. You don’t have the courage to tell them how you feel, so instead, you pledge your life to become a ninja tirelessly making their life better in tiny ways.
