I wrote this short story as an introduction to a new open universe that I am contemplating. There are two similar scenarios knocking around in my brain that sound fun to write. Hopefully, other writers will add their two cents to this universe. Let me know if you are interested.
According to our glorious Site owner, I am not supposed to assign a single story a universe, so that will have to wait until I, or another decides to add their efforts in this direction.
