For this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge, Richard and Jayden are worldbuilding! Using Rebekah Loper‘s book The A-Zs of Worldbuilding as a guide, we have teamed up to give descriptions of the world we’re creating, along with snippets of what it’s like to exist in the world. Enjoy!
Background by Jayden for E is for Economy:
Everyone has a card that they use as their identification and money. They just scan it whenever they need to purchase something, and they are all given money every week that they can spend how they like. Everyone has a job in the society and they contribute in whatever way they are needed. The women get to pick their jobs, and the submissive males get whatever is left. They have to keep their society safe from the dinosaurs that are lurking outside their walls all the time.
Story by Richard:
“Hey hot stuff, how ‘bout a refill?” Jennifer said, waving her coffee cup at the waiter.
“Sure thing, sweet heart, you want some cream in your coffee?” asked Chris, one hand on his cocked hip. The booty shorts hugged his slender legs, following the curve of his perky butt.
Jennifer and her friends laughed, “Oh you’re bad. Don’t make me take you out back for a spanking.”
Chris shook his head and poured the coffee. “Miss, The Sausage Party isn’t that kind of restaurant. You want to go down the street to ‘Pecker’s for that.”
“Aww, come on sweet thing. Don’t you want a good tip?”
“Sounds like you’re the one fishing for a tip,” he said, pulling the pad off his waistband and tapping his pencil on it. “So what’ll it be?”
“Two eggs, toast, homefries, double bacon.”
“Chicken or raptor?”
“Raptor, I’m hungry.”
“Big breakfast. Busy day ahead?”
“Someone’s gotta keep you little snacks safe from the Dryps.”
Charlie sighed and ripped the order off the pad. “They roaming back this way again? Early this year, isn’t it?”
“Earlier every year. Haven’t gotten so much as a weather report from the monitor stations down south in six months. Who knows what’s going on down there.”
Charlie shook his head and took the order back to the kitchen. After Jennifer finished eating he brought the check over.
“Watch your back,” he said. “The Dryptosauruses (Dryptosauri?) are no joke. My mom was an ace hunter, and they still took her arm off.”
“You worried about me, kid?” Jennifer asked with a smirk.
“Give me a call when you get back, and we’ll see if you keep calling me kid,” he said, pointing to his number on the bottom of the check.
Jennifer laughed, grabbed her jacket, and slid her card over the check. “I’ll bring you back a claw. Give you something to scratch the itch when mommy’s not around.”
