Our wonderful RM Len Iode has been gracious enough to let me use him as a fiction prompt. Here's the prompt:
The scraggy haired Ethan Martes appears on the screen and sighs, “Alright… So. Call out to all of Odan-Urr. I know what you are thinking. Ethan, why are you messing with the emergency frequency again? But hear me out! This time, it’s an actual emergency. So, I was trying to bait out a possible Collective Spy, but I had no way of getting them to come out of hiding unless I had some really good bait. After a couple of drinks, I got Len to agree to go on a blind date and I used him and his blind date as bait. Good news, I’m currently hot on the tail of the Collective Spy and will have him apprehended in about an hour. Bad news, I think Len and his date got kidnapped. Someone mind checking on them and or possibly saving them? Thanks, I owe you a drink.”
