We're back to the Myth and Science Universe today with a story set a day or two after the events of "Fateful Meeting" and "Friends at First Fight."
Having read at least those two stories helps fill in the backstory, but it's not necessary to understand what's going on in today's flash fiction.
I apologize for the delay in posting. I prefer to wait until I have the audio ready to post at the same time, and I wanted C. L. to help record the male voices as he's been doing with the last several audios. However, with the beginning of warmer weather, our neighbors have been mowing lawns and playing on four wheelers until late in the evening, meaning we couldn't cut a clean recording. So I finally gave up and just recorded it all myself this morning.
Recording narration and voicing three characters is no joke, even for such a short piece, is no joke! Props to all the voice actors out there. You don't really understand what a physical strain that kind of vocal gymnastics can be until you actually give it a shot.
Today's story takes us back to the Myth and Science Universe again. I know I've been a bit heavy on that universe lately. I promise we'll have at least three weeks before we have another one.
"Conflict of Instinct" is set a few decades after "Making the List" and a few kingdoms over in the Fae realm.
You don't have to have read any of the other stories set in the universe to understand what's happening though.
As always, you can also listen to the audio version here.
Today's flash fic takes us back to the Myth and Science Universe several months after the events of "I Have the Weirdest Friends." Okay, so it's not the "long story" about how Jenn and Penelope found out Lily wasn't from Earth. That story's being saved for the Myth and Science Universe short story collection in the works, but today's story happens pretty much right after that one.
Having a passing familiarity with the universe helps, but it's not necessary to enjoy or understand the story.
You can also listen to the audio version.
When I saw the prompt for today's story, I knew it would have to be set somewhere, sometime in the Myth and Science Universe. It's set toward the beginning of the universe's timeline, so while having already read "Don't Go Near the Well" is helpful, it's not needed to enjoy the story. It's set a year or so after the events of "Don't Go Near the Well" and a couple of years from "Flight from Mab's Castle."
You can also find the audio version here.
Today's story takes us back to the Myth and Science Universe several months after the events of Culture Shock and about a week after The Move. Having read those two stories first can help make this one a bit more fun, but it's not necessary to understand the story.
If you'd rather hear the story, you can also find the audio version here.
Today's story takes us back to the Supers Universe. It's set about a month after "Growing Pains." Prior knowledge of the universe isn't needed to enjoy the story though.
Or you can listen to the audio version.
We're about a week away from the one year birthday of this series, and today's story takes us back almost to the beginning. "Birth of a Believer" is set about two or three weeks after the events of "Don't Go Near the Well," as time is reckoned in the human realm.
You don't have to have read that flash fic or be familiar with the Myth and Science universe to understand this flash fiction. However, long time readers may notice a couple easter eggs hidden within.
As always, you can find the audio here.
If humanity every made the endangered species list, who would be the ones adding us to it?
Today's story takes us back to the Myth and Science universe a few weeks before the events of "Flight from Mab's Castle." You don't need to be familiar with the universe to understand the story though.

Believe it or not, this week's story is set back in the Myth & Science universe again just a few hours after the events of "Fateful Meeting."
It did go 150 words or so over the usual limit, but it worked so well, I decided to keep it. I'll be extra careful not to "cheat" next week.
Today's story takes us back to the Myth & Science universe a few days after Return to the Wood.
I do realize I changed the opening lines just a touch for grammatical reasons and to fit more with the nomenclature of the culture I'm working in. I hope you'll pardon the changes since the meaning is still more or less the same.
