8) sand
I kicked my feet, stretching to touch the tip of an incoming wave as I sat on the beach wall. I grinned, poking my tongue through my teeth as my dad came over with an armful of hot chips. Our special day at the beach, just me and him, he did this with all of us. Spent proper time together like families in those old Christmas stories.

He handed me a tray, we both tucked in in silence, we didn't need to say anything. Even with a heavy dosing of sand the chips filled our stomachs to match our hearts.

"It's not fair," I grumbled into my salad of wilted leaves. I looked over at Amarthara, her long black ringlets falling over her face. She looked through them at me.

"It just is the way it is here," she replied, all philosophical and zen-like. "We are not considered equal citizens, but the elders tell of times when it was far worse for women."

I sighed, why did they roll over and take it so easily? "Women make up over half the population, why should we be shackled? We can do everything a man can. We could fight unseen by them!"

Hopefully you are all familiar with the 'Keep Calm and Carry On' meme, based off British WWII posters. Even if you're not, you don't need familiarity to participate today!

Go here and create a 'Keep Calm' poster for your character(s). Save 'em and post 'em! (But do so behind cuts, please, for large images!)

84) Author's choice: check
"Water blaster," called Ash from behind a clipboard.

"Check!" I replied.

"Extra large water bombs."


"Stink bombs."

"Check." I looked down at the bright, enticing packet. "Mum'll kill you if she finds these."

"So don't tell her," he replied with a cheeky grin. "Aunt Matilda's posh little brats deserve them. I'll give you a fiver if you can set one off in their wardrobe." He waggled his eyebrows.

"Ok, deal, but you have to pack a water gun for me too! We can tag team them!"

"Extra large water gun for sister," he said pointing at his wardrobe.

83) Author's choice: instructing someone else
Muse: Ariella

"No no no!" I yelled, patience snapping. "You need to be firm, don't yield to their suggestions.

Ash glanced at me. "I'm…  not sure if that is a good idea."

Was he talking to me or them? "They're just suggesting these paths because they have family that way. But the only way to save them is to euthanize where the disease already is."

He stuttered a version of what I said. We all stood around a crude map. Not one of the men noticed me. I was a woman so I couldn't possibly be clever.

Yet I was in charge.
