Week 99 Prompt:
Next week will mark the 100th Prompt for Genre Shorties, which was started by the fearless Kay M. waaaay back in 2009. I hope Kay will miraculously return for that momentous occasion, but just in case, and since #100 needs to be WAY COOL, I'll use this week's prompt, #99, to solicit ideas from you.

I'll choose from your offerings. Now give me some offerings. :-)
