People be asking this a lot in IRC so I'll clarify here. Your story doesn't have to involve actual fighting, just some aspect of war.

There are lots of things that happen during war that aren't directly combat related, and those are fine to write about (maybe even better? I dunno how good you are at writing a trench scene and making it good).

You don't have to explicitly mention the "other team." That's more for the purposes of deciding the winner and exempting people from DMs/Loss.

Gentlemen.


The Alchemist's Churn, 134 words.

It was a magic trick. Take a bucket of cream, stick some wood in it, plunge it for a spell, and there. Rich, creamy gold, fit right for the market. Pure, salt of the earth magic.

He didn't remember much these days. Not since the accident. Couldn't remember his name, or his favorite color, or how he'd got in this little white room. He didn't even bother to ask who all the people who came in to poke and prod and question him were anymore. It didn't seem to matter. He'd forget them by the time they left anyway.

He remembered how it felt, though, melting on his tongue, how it shined fresh from the bucket. Everything else slipped away, but the gold and its magic stayed with him. It was all he needed.

Too Late

It was steak and a blowjob day and refrigerator was parched of butter. Sheila was half-packed when Byron walked through the front door; she had sent him out, the closest grocery store ten minutes one way at best. The unsalted porterhouse laid out spread eagle on the butcher block, nowhere close to room temp.

“I went to the 7-11, I know they don’t carry real butter, but that’s not really the best part of this day anyway,” Byron said. He hadn’t seen her immediately upon entrance; he was too busy smirking at the white tub of yellow substitute.

“Suck your own loving cock.”

She wheeled her travel case past him, never looking back as she loaded it into her Camry parked at the curb. His left hand slick from the perspiring margarine, Byron stood on the stoop and watched his wife of six years drive away.

Memories of Butter 78 words

Once, before the Incident, I used to use it freely.
Now the mere idea of it makes me feel rather ill.
Each time I see a pound cake I recall with apprehension
The '97 South Wisconsin Melted Butter Spill.

The lawyers say I'll never win a claim for mental anguish.
Well, tell that to my butter-flavored post-traumatic stress.
I cower in the corner when I even spot a crab leg, and
couldn't have a Hollandaise except under duress.

I smelled gumbo in my dreams, tasted andouille and okra in the middle of the night. The worst thing about Idaho was the food. Other people who emigrated from out of state mainly complained about the dirt poor Republicans and their arsenals of guns, but not me. I just missed Nana Jan.

After she passed, all I had left of her were photos, so I mailed back home and asked the family if she had ever written down her recipes. They never wrote back, but they called.

I’m trying my hand at fried chicken tonight. It’s crazy how much butter they’re having me buy at the store, but if it turns out at delicious as the roux did for the gumbo, then I don’t care about the calories. Nana Jan was a round lady when she died, but she always had a smile on her face.

He pushed around the salad as fireworks went off in the distance. All it was a pile of leaves. Charlotte looked at him with leaf sticking out of her mouth.

“What’s wrong?”

The fair was today. Deep fried twinkies, deep fried cookie dough, deep fried watermelon. Deep fried everything. He could be barbequing some hamburgers right now. Drinking a beer while watching the game.

“Do you not like it?”

He stabbed his fork into the bowl, and stuck one of the tasteless leaves into his mouth. He remembered the juicy taste of a steak, the classic sensation of chicken. He smiled at Charlotte.

“No, it’s great.”

He should’ve never married a vegan.

Unforgotten
149 words

There once was butter. It was smooth and delicious, and it knew. So it taunted the other foods in the fridge.

“I am the best there is,” it cried. “Nothing goes as well with bread as me!”

“Hold on now,” said the cheese.

“Oh shut up, you dry twat,” said the cracker, unaware of the irony.

“What about spread?” said the steak. “Spread can taste like meat and stuff.”

“That may be true,” the butter said, “but I am more flexible. You can put me on a bread and salami on me and still have meat, but also butter. I am the omni-food.”

“You certainly are no pizza,” the pizza said.

“poo poo, that’s right,” the butter said. The sudden realization drove it mad with grief. It curled itself.

So yeah, that’s why it’s bad. I totally remembered to get fresh butter. Now shut up and hand me the spread.

The company was on a roll until the enemy rendered their weapons useless. Unable to triglycerides, the Captain quickly dropped the salt to his men.

"We'll just have to spread out", said Captain Londolakes.

"We can't," said Lieutenant Oleo. "The margarine for error is too high! We're toast!"

"You're much too white bread, soldier" said Londolakes, combat knife clenched between his teeth. "I thought you butter than that."

"No," said Oleo, "I won't tallow it!"

The solder named Chris Go grabbed Oleo by the lapels. "Think about Pam!"

"You're right," Oleo said, "I spray every day for a chance to return home. I cannot shorten my life here."

The company split for the batter, lost and a-fried. They all managed to greasefully escape but the opposing government issued a fatwa. Makes my stomach churn just thinking about it. Lard have mercy on their souls.
