Friday Fictioneers: Planet Blub

Welcome Dear Readers!  You are cordially invited to take a break from you’re summertime water fun to check out this week’s Friday Fictioneer Challenge. (But try not to get water all over the blog, will ya?)

Now for the challenge which is to write a 100-word story with a beginning, middle and end inspired by this week’s picture courtesy of and copyrighted by David Stewart.  Now, who does all the organizing for this weekly-writing shindig? None other than Rochelle Wisoff-Fields over at Addicted to Purple, that’s who. So head on over and check it out!


Planet Blub

We traveled 12 years in suspended animation for this? I’m sorry, Roger, Planet Blub sucks.

It’s not exactly like the brochure, Josephine, I admit . . . it might grow on us . .

You mean like breakfast did?  That alien scrambled egg nearly killed you, Roger!  Thank god I had Mace! It would have devoured your face!

Shhh . . . here come the Blubians now.

Probably wanting to know if we’re enjoying their stupid Ferris Wheel.

We bear repast, Earthlings.  Scrambled eggs.


Did you remember the Mace, Josephine?


If we hurry, we can still catch the Earth Shuttle.

I love you, Roger.

  1. Thank goodness for the Earth shuttle–sounds like it would be another 24 years of scrambled eggs on Blub if they had missed it. Fun story.

  2. I’m sure the brochure went on and on about the gorgeous view. Unfortunately, the menu appears limited. Let’s hope the cocktails are better.

  3. What a fun take on the photo. Too many times, the brochure over promises, and reality of the spot is far different! Your story is an epic example of this!

    • Oh those brochures! We once booked a weekend at a hotel on the beach front — as pictured on the brochure Turned out it was trick photography. The beach was three blocks away!

  4. when your breakfast tries to eat your face, then you know it’s a messed up world ^^ awesome imagination, you never cease to entertain ^^
