Well, I finished up the writing prompt that I can’t post yet. So now I’m thinking of picking up this one next:

Imagine Person A trapped in a time loop, forced to relive days over and over every time Person B dies. And B dies a lot. A has to keep saving them and at first tries to explain the loops to B, but after each rehearsed explanation, each drawn out conversation is erased by B’s many deaths, A eventually gives up and just works endlessly to continue each day a little longer until it might eventually stop.

Now imagine this from B’s perspective. B doesn’t know anything about the loops, doesn’t remember any of their deaths, only knows that A has become strangely overprotective lately—and that A looks so terribly weary.

It sounds like it could be pretty interesting. I think I’ll work on this one tonight! If you try it, post it in the comments. I’d love to see what you do with it.

*Prompt from OTP Prompts on Tumblr.
