It was a dark and stormy night in the kingdom of Wattopia.
Bad boy CEOs cruised by on their motorcycles. Harry Styles winked at girls. Alpha vampires and werewolves fought over an ordinary girl.
It was terrifying.
The Wattwitch, who was banished to dwell in the dark forest for refusing to write the most popular genre, was tired of seeing fantasy and science fiction cast aside. She cast her spells and summoned spirits, exorcised Harry Styles, and brought back Dumbledore's ghost, in order to bring back the former glory of fantasy and science fiction and unite the kingdom once more.
Writers of both fantasy and science fiction were inspired by her rebellion. They banded together, creating an alliance for the good of all Watty-kind.
They became FANTASCI.
The spirits were pleased.
They possessed robots, and the robots delivered messages to the writers with a spell for success written in code.
The pumpkin spoke, and the writers listened.
The champions of FANTASCI would spread their message to the world in the form of thrilling, seasonal short stories. Their theme was this:
Set in Autumn on the grayest of days,
Fears come to life in the most alluring ways,
Write fantasy or sci-fi, you have the choice
Succeed and the world shall rejoice.
