Your shapeshifter will travel through time, from the 18th or 19th century to the year 2017, in search of their romantic interest.
Your flash piece should include elements of romance or erotic romance. It can be sexy, scary or humorous. Have fun with it. It may, of course, include horror; after all, it’s Halloween.
