Iron Fic 5-9: Literature


Staff member
This one's a bit meta. Ever wonder what fictional characters read in their spare time? The foundational texts of their society, the holy books and the novels and the poetry. No shame admitting you haven't; this is your chance to think it through.

The challenge this week is to write about reading. "What do people in your setting read, and to what end" should be a question your fic answers. Your answer can take the form of excerpts of in-universe textbooks or novels, literary discussion and criticism between characters, interviews, asides, and in-universe fictionalizations of series events.

Try not to get too meta, there's only so many layers you can go down before you're off-topic.
