Ask the I-Ching what your next Ficly should be about?

This challenge has ended!

Go to and type “What should my next Ficly be about?” into the box. Then virtually throw the coins six time, read your answer and use it to write a story. I got the following for my example question (seems appropriate, no?)

Beneath the immobile Mounatin the arousing Thunder stirs

    Ugh the rest of the information is here: Beneath the immobile Mountain the arousing Thunder stirs:
    The Superior Person preserves his freedom under oppressive conditions by watching what comes out of his mouth, as well as what goes in.

    Endure and good fortune will come.
    Nurture others in need, as if you were feeding yourself.
    Take care not to provide sustenance for those who feed off others.
    Stay as high as possible on the food chain.

    You are a conduit in this instance, able to provide the sustenance needed by others.
    Position yourself to nourish the truly needy and worthy.
    Avoid situations where you might be coerced into supporting the parasites and vermin who deprive your true charges.
    Your own nourishment is an issue here, too.

Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
