Weekend Challenge: Alone Together

Y'all... I don't even know what to say, right now.

We're all in varying degrees of isolation and avoiding and boredom and we might as well dump that same thing on our favorite characters, yes?

I have a list of 100 things to do in quarantine. Most are general, but some are oddly-specific. As always, you can adjust the prompt accordingly (change out a suggested book title/website/etc to fit your character) and interpret it as you like.

Also, as always.. request a specific number (or two or three) or ask for a random.

Hopefully... you and your characters can get something out of the list!
