Okay, the premise is simple. Go to >this< site, generate one or more titles, then come up with a summary for a sci-fi or fantasy story that is at least one paragraph long (4 sentences, and it can be longer then that).
There isn't a prize or anything, it's just a fun exercise. Once I have an example I'll post it.
Because it made me think of 'Wizard's Sleeve' I'll go for.
The Willow's Slave
Set in Victorian times this Gothic novella details a young boy who becomes increasingly attracted to the willow tree that stands vigil at the base of his garden. As the stoy progesses we see him pull away from his peer group and family as he escapes the alienation he felt amongst the bourgeois society he was part of. What is the spirit that speaks to softly to his soul and keeps him bounds to its side? Can those around him discover the deeper, more primevel magik that enters and leaves his mind at will? As each visit from the daemon serves only to carry away his links to humanity can they exorcise malevont power before the boy becomes the Willow's slave?
