Weekend Challenge: Make Me A Plot

I found some cool plot generators the other day, so I thought they would be perfect as a weekend challenge. And then I found a couple more so now you have a bunch of categories to choose from:
• Dystopian
• Fairy tale
• Drama
• Fantasy
• Mystery
• Romance
• Sci-Fi

Pick what categories you'd like a random plot for and I will generate you your own unique tale. You can follow the plot or just pick out one element to be inspired by — whatever works best for you!

Write 200 words or make a graphic and post it back here by Thursday night, and I will write you a drabble or make you an icon or add words to a WIP in your honor.

Good luck!!
