"F___." [A Short Story I Wrote in Downtown Denver]

In 2017, I took a trip by myself to Colorado. I stayed in a hostel in downtown where I met some fascinating people. One guy was from New Zealand, one from England, and another from New Mexico. One an adventurer, one a scientist in town for a lecture, and another in the U.S. Air Force. We all went out and got drunk and I faked a British accent.

I was only in town for 2 days and on the second day I had time to kill, so I checked out of the hostel and walked to a Starbucks. The writer of the James Bond books, Ian Fleming, once said he wrote best in places that weren’t his home. There’s a lot more to Ian’s thought there, but I only need that snippet of the story to tell you I took his advice and sat in a Starbucks and wrote.

How I Would Have Ended the Last Episode of Game of Thrones.

The conclusion to the Game of Thrones series was underwhelming at best. The cinematography and acting was all phenomenal, but the way the writers chose to end it just wasn’t for me. Today, I’d like to break down how I would have ended the show in the last episode. This of course assumes that everything up until this last episode remained the same, even though the entire last season had some incredibly awkward pacing and writing in general.
