Tell me a science fiction story, io9—and do it in only six words.

What kind of tale will you this time around? Perhaps a doomed time travel romance (Time Traveler seeks partner; have met.—purdyjpurdy)? Or will you set your sights on a robot bound on a course for both tragedy and puns (“Lost charger,” the cyborg said, dying— Daleoftheenders)? Or maybe your story lies even further out in time or space.

Whatever it is, retrieve it, write it down, and then settle in to read the works of all your fellow travelers out there.
