Here’s another response to an excellent prompt from ptwyant.com! This week’s involve a return, an encounter with a former friend, and a single snowflake.
Thank you for the inspiration! I’ve written a story for Queer Sci Fi’s April Renewal anthology, ‘Snowflake’ because of this excellent prompt. Since I’m submitting this story, I can’t share the entire thing. I can, however, offer up a teaser. 🙂
Ashildr was trapped within the snowflake, perfectly preserved within the ice.
“Here you will remain, my lovely,” the Snow Queen said in her melodic, unchanging voice. “Never to age. Never to sorrow.”
Never to see Ingold again. Ashildr could no longer despair at this. Fixed and frozen were her thoughts as well as her form.
