Story beginnings, take two

With respect to my earlier post on story beginnings:

All six of those beginnings have one thing in common.

The first person reading my LJ who knows enough about my work to figure out what it is, will win a Tuckerization* in a later story.

*tuckerization (n): The act of using a real name as an in-joke (i.e. Mount Kirby in Kurt Busiek's Astro City comics). From Wilson "Bob" Tucker, a science fiction writer of the 50s who made a practicing of using his friends' names for minor characters in his stories.
