Io9 run a segment where they post a piece of concept art and users are encouraged to write the story behind it. This week's image is "The Night Train," by Ryan Mauskopf. I decided to finally give this a go.
The Night Train
Mika looked into the drink can.
"Are you sure this is going to work?" she asked. "We need to be unrecognizable to the Underrealm folk."
Rick snuffled a snort-filled response and she looked over. Where he'd once sat, there was now a towering mound of hair, a great animal that looked both strong and kind. He shuffled the briefcase on his lap and snuffled again.
"Oh," Mika said.
She turned to Red and where his head had been was now smoke and fire, a cone of radiating heat. He turned to Mika and gave an attempt at a smile.
"Right," Mika took a sip from the drink. "I guess here goes nothing."
