Jack and the Icicle

By:

A 100-word location, inspired by this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_stalactite) and a classic fairytale.

 

In the cold cold winter of the frozen frozen North the temperatures drop so low that the clouds freeze.
 
Scholars believe a permanent ice cap sits in the sky over the north pole, casting that land into eternal shadow. With the onset of winter, the clouds freeze ever further southwards and the skies darken. Great stalactites of ice form, connecting earth to sky. There are legends of men who have climbed these and of the giants who live in the realms of eternal frost above, whose footsteps may be heard in the creaking icesheet. Of course, they are only legends...

Absolutely love this. Great 100!
A fairy tale treatment would require much higher wordcount.

Fun Fun Fun

       By: Cheka Man

Historicly, we have had plenty of rl groups like the Taliban and the Puritans who supressed anything which was in any way fun. What if there was some group that was the opposite? (which in time would cause problems of it's own for the civilians under their control.)
