This week you’ll be writing stories about anthropomorphized non-human societies embedded within modern human civilizations, in the vein of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox.

Four constraints by which your stories must abide:
  • Non-human characters cannot communicate with humans
  • Non-humans have a limited perspective on human society. They understand only the facets of the human world to which they are directly exposed, and then only imperfectly.
  • Stories must be set in approximately modern times
  • No downer endings. Let's keep this 2020 positivity train rolling.
Flash rules for protagonist species available upon request.

Standard rules apply as set out in the OP, read them carefully if you’re new.
