    Professor Literati?s Sci-Fi Roulette Challenge

    Welcome gentle beings to the Science Fiction Roulette Challenge. Posting a number between 1 and 21 will afford you the first line from a Science Fiction novel. These lines will be supplied to you by PM.

    From there, I invite your muse to guide you to whatever genre, length and timeframe you desire. Just remember to use this first line as the first line in your Star Wars fanfic story.

    Slots will be filled on a first come-first serve basis. Please remember to post a link in this thread to your story and list Professor_Literati?s Sci-Fi Roulette Challenge in the Author?s notes section.

    We will be using the following outline for these stories:


    Questions may be rendered here as needed. Good luck and thank you for your consideration.
