The intrepid young writer opens the plain, unmarked manila envelope. A small chip falls into her hand. She inserts it in her USB port, and an audio file starts:
“Good day, River. We have noticed a stunning increase in mediocre media, particularly in the Juvenile and Young Adult fields. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to investigate and report your findings in these fields. Should you or any of you comrades be caught, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This chip will self-destruct in five seconds.
“Good luck, River.”
Scrambling, she takes the chip and flings it across the room, where a small Bang! is heard.
And thus, Strike a Spark was born!
