A Snow, A Flood, A Fire, by Jamie Berrout

[Strange Horizons]
★★☆☆☆ Not Recommended

(Dystopia) Lupita Garza hates her job as a guard at the museum, her boss seems to hate her, and it looks like her uterus transplant isn’t going to get funded. Things go downhill from there. (4,119 words; Time: 13m)

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story makes the hopelessness of Garza’s situation very real.

Con: The story asks for us to root for vandals who loot a museum.

Beyond that, the vandals are way too quick to take Garza under their wing, and that LumiΓ¨re system definitely seems poorly designed if it’s that easy to beat.
