League of Awesomeness 2075 or Beyond Challenge - Literature Class

“Okay everybody, literature text.” the teacher commanded through the monitor. Tara punched up the text files and hit literature.

“Now, as you know, story-telling has evolved over the years. We’ve looked at the tragedies of the greeks, the epics of Shakespeare.” she continued.

Tara was already bored. Drawn out crap.

“Today, we’re going to look at one of the biggest influences on modern entertainment. Today’s holo-vision shows and books are heavily inspired by an oldnet page called Ficlets.”

Tara yawned and fidgeted with her hair.

“In fact, President Cristina was known to have been very active in the early part of the century as an author and an editor. She was one of the original members of the League of Awesomeness…and we all know what that means.

Tara perked up. She’d always wanted to be in the League.

“Ficlets’ greatest impact was its ability to say a lot with a little. It made its point and left you to think about it. It didn’t spell everything out for you.”

“And that made it awesome.”
