Microcosms 26

Hi, folks!, It’s me, Geoff, looking after the shop. This week our guest host is Stephen Shirres. His inspiration has come from Lego, one of the most brilliant toys ever created, and also one of the most painful if you have ever trodden on one – at least online we’re safe from that. So, over to you, Stephen:


“Lego Dimensions smashed together a whole load of different franchises into one big interactive toy. Well, last week they announced the new franchises joining the game later this year with this trailer:

Why not take this bit of fun and try putting the Microcosms spin on it? So, without writing any fan fiction – we want to see new characters in new places – spin the spinner and see where you end up.”




As usual, our contest will begin with three things: character, setting, and genre.

We spun, and our three elements are character: DJ, setting: Chinese Restaurant, and genre: Romance.

Feel free to write a story using those, or spin a new set of your own. Be sure to include which three elements you’re using.
