Q4U: How might you spin this prompt in an unexpected direction? How about as science fiction or steampunk?


  1. Science fiction sounds like it would be appropriate. All the possibilities there. I'm not too well read in steampunk, but I guess it could work as well...

    1. In either case, the vengeance seekers might have some special tech up their sleeves. Thanks for coming by!

  2. I visited this post yesterday and then pondered it for awhile. I'm not sure what direction I would take the story, but I would eventually turn their rage and revenge into forgiveness and peace.

    1. Nice. Yes, I can certainly see a group like this realizing that to seek revenge only keeps them stuck in a cycle of endless violence and doesn't bring back their lost families.
