We Set the Sky on Fire

We Set the Sky on Fire

by Yaksher

A wanderer stumbles upon the City of Wizards on the day they celebrate their triumph over their tyrant gods and watches the view with an old wizard.

A 4th of July fireworks-inspired short story, set in a world where gods are plentiful and sometimes they die.

Cover image is an awful photo of part of the inspiring fireworks show in question.

It's fun to see shorter works on RR-- this was neat. I love the description of the fireworks, and the hints of a larger world. Would love to see more but this definitely works as a little standalone piece :)

I like the reveal that the devout main character has been having a conversation with a god-slayer-- i think really pushing the drama of that could add to the story
