Aether Prompt Winner: D. Wallace Peach

Jason gave me another wonderful win for my microfiction story. It was fun going dark with this one. If you enjoy microfiction challenges, he has a weekly prompt. Happy Writing!

Aethereal Engineer

The talented D. Wallace Peach of Myths of the Mirror gained a second victory by winning the February 20th Aether Prompt with a dream stalking huntressโ€ฆ

The shadow scaled the wall, a weightless thing made of silhouettes, streetlights, and full moons. She sought the open windows of sultry summers, of proper men, their ravening desires forbidden during wakeful hours. Before them, sheโ€™d assume a human shape, one they would never possess if it were not for their midnight dreams.

Congratulations! Now youโ€™re in the running for the 2019 AETHEREAL ENGINEER WRITER SUPPORT PRIZE PACKAGE! How might she, or possibly you, perchance win such fabled treasure as this? Take a look at my weekly Aether Prompts and find out!

    Many congratulations, Diana! I always admire people who can tell a whole story in under 100 words – that’s some kind of superpower to me! ๐Ÿ˜„

  9. ‘… proper men …’ now there’s a speculative fiction challenge – can’t imagine what image you’d use though. Oh well, back to window cleaning. Another well deserved win, Diana – have a good weekend.

    I’m also just feeling generally lethargic. I’d like to blame something that’s not me! The weather, why not? (K)

    • Thanks, Steven. I’m getting better at “fewer” words. I didn’t even use all 100 of them. Good practice for me. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Happy Writing, my friend. Let me know when you’re ready for a reader. ๐Ÿ™‚


  17. This is like a blurb for a book that would be snapped up just to see what happens inside the pages…….. It’s so scarily intriguing!
