:grin: :thumbsup: A coupleof years ago somebody wrote a story about an abandoned drone, its wait in space for years, and rogue drones’ communication/psychology/sociology. Really impressive. Can’t find it ATM, I’ll keep looking.

Especially loved this sentence. So elegant description of space.


(Lunarisse Aspenstar) #6

Thank you for your entry! It has been listed on the Contest Submission Roster. I wsn’t sure where to put it, so I put it under Poetry unless you’d prefer Academic.

Thank you. Since there is no category for “humor”, i think poetry fits best :slight_smile:

Cute and simple. Emotive in the first half.
