Choose a random stranger and watch them for a bit. Now explain in the form of a short story how they came to be in possession of top secret materials, and why *you* have been hired to get them back.

Write a story about celestial bureaucracy. It can be anything from paperwork needed to send people into hell, meetings where the future of existence is pitched with a Powerpoint presentation, or even just a bunch of foolish celestial beings having a watercooler talk. Just make it seem exceedingly ordinary.

Ask a little kid where babies come from. Or, think about where you first thought babies came from when you were young. Write that story as if it were true.

Any inanimate object of your choosing is actually a living being with a folklore-like backstory. (ie the moon is actually the head of a witch that's being chased by the sun, a witch hunter on fire).

It is a new century and Apple continues to be the leader in Artificial Intelligence. They have been since 2050 and still are, though Samsung is catching up. The cyborg version of Steve Jobs has decided on a new technology, similar to the one that gave him life, he has found a way for computers to have a mind of their own. The new iPhone 26 is set to be included with this new chip. Will this be the end of the world or just the beginning of a new era?
