|Tales From the Fluffy Bunny
- editor Carol Hightshoe
Welcome to the Fluffy Bunny
The Fluffy Bunny? You say?
What kind of name is that for an adventurer’s bar?
Well, it’s not only the name of the bar it’s also the name of that blade you see hanging over the bar. The blade I used to slay
the ancient dragon Thorenoak.
All adventurers are welcome here. But I have found the ones who are truly the bravest are not those who give themselves or
their weapons grandiose names. They are the ones who are reluctant to tell their stories. However, the best stories come
from the ones who have silly nicknames – like The Fluffy Bunny.
So pull up a chair and tell us how your weapon earned its name. First drink is on the house. And depending on the quality of
the tale another may follow as well.
What we are looking for are Fantasy stories that feature your main character telling a tale about how they or their weapon
earned their name. Humor is a plus.
All stories need to start with: “This is my tale…”
Please note the editor will be adding a frame to each story to maintain the illusion the story is taking place in The Fluffy
Bunny and is being told to the bartender/patrons therein. You do not need to add any elements/breaks in the story – just tell
the story about your hero and/or their weapon’s silly nickname.
Break the story-writing rules if you want. If you use a tried and true plotline, twist it in an original and interesting way.
Original stories are preferred. Query for reprints.
ALL writers are encouraged to submit. Doesn’t matter if you’re a pro with years of credits, a beginner just starting out, or a
teenager - please feel free to send the editor a story. In your cover email, please tell the editor a bit about yourself and a quick
one-line synopsis of the story. Include genre. If experimental, please explain the type or how so the editor doesn’t edit out the
form or reject it out of hand. Thank you.
