Steal, borrow, it’s all good…
Have some fun today: Steal something from a favorite published universe
Remember, you can’t sell a derivative work without permission, or a license, but that’s not the point today. Today is all about having fun in a world you know well, or with characters you already love.
Leave a comment to let us know which world you played in today!

Based on comments above, I probably misinterpreted today’s task. I am an unabashed thief. In fact I have a file of stolen material. In all my reading, phrases, sentences, and especially figures of speech that strike me go into that file
Well, I messed with Pretty Little Liars. But this all makes sense, seriously! https://storiesin5minutes.wordpress.com/2018/05/05/fanfiction-blues-storyaday-post/
I borrowed a little from Arthur Conan Doyle. Really fun to play in someone else’s world!
That sounds intriguing.
Thanks! I’ve been reading the Professor Challenger novels lately.
A lot of fun ideas here!
I wound up writing an alternate history for the Golden Girls, where Blanche, Dorothy, and Rose met in high school. Sadly, I didn’t manage to work Sophia in until the very end.
Oh that sounds great. I need to go back and watch The Golden Girls again!
I love this so much!
Today’s story featured my favorite ghost-seeing character Celeste (my own creation) having to stop in Charlaine Harris’ Midnight, Texas and interacting with some of her lovely characters. So much fun!
Oh that does sound like fun!
Oh, that’s a good idea, to have one of your original character’s in someone else’s fictional world! I wish I would’ve thought of that!
Done. Tried channeling my inner Ian Fleming and wrote a short James Bond story, this was a fun assignment!
Are you shaken or stirred?
I combined today’s prompt with a Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt and threw 2 characters from a story I’m writing together with a couple characters from the book I finished reading last night.
I am writing now but my world is Alice In Wonderland! Alice is in modern reality….I am having fun and amusing myself.
That’s at least half the battle!
I love the idea of your Alice story.
