War and Peace
Nilrom Bach writes
Armed conflict has broken out on the planet of Hephaestus between rival pacifist groups. Trouble started when Reverend Jane Parsley's League Against Battles Involving Aggression staged a 'March for Peace' past the headquarters of Harriet Mydinna's Sisters Against Death. SAD members came out and jeered at their rivals, casting insults such as 'Your legs aren't very hairy' and 'Call yourself a vegan? I saw you eating cheese made with rennet'. Slaps and pinches were exchanged, and it wasn't long before someone pulled a gun. Both groups are now locked in fierce battle, and have used up most of the Firearms supplies on the planet.
