Triple F: Familiar Face, Unfamiliar World…

Hope your week’s been great so far (we still have a couple peelings of it left to enjoy). I went to a town or two away to see my aunt, that was nice. A lot’s been going on there that will serve as fodder for future posts, I hope (including the awesome pic of the fridge she has at work).

Anyway, let’s get to it.

Today’s Friday, and that means it’s Fabulous Fiction Friday and you get another prompt to chew on (figuratively–if you print this out, what you do with it is your business).

This week I visited family, and there was Star Wars Day this week, too. So I thought I could mix that around (minus the copyrighted stuff, unless you want to do fan fiction). So your Triple F prompt for this week is:

People you know have to live in a totally different universe than our own for one day. Where is it, and what happens?

I thought something like Narnia or Star Wars when I wrote that, but if you want to make it so your brother or sister has to live in some odd world of your own creation, go ahead.

My brother would be an interesting subject for that kind of thing, because I’m pretty sure he’d enjoy wherever I decided to plop him. Okay, how about:

Your mom has to live in a world that you made up when you were five? What exactly would happen? Is she riding unicorns, or living in blanket forts instead of a house? If your mom knows you really well, would this world be like a second home to her? And are you there, too?

Or maybe a good friend of yours has to live in a world that you created when you were kinda upset with them, years ago. What would happen to them? Would they be depressed, or would they realize that you needed to reconcile? That would depend on how they were sent there and if they knew you created the world, of course. Or maybe they’re too busy dodging traffic jams and being distracted by irritating texts on their phone pretending to be from you…

Didn’t mean to be a downer on that last one–ideally, you’d want to go for the happy ending (even though it’s not that way in real life, at least not all the time).

All right, that’s enough to get the mental snowball rolling (even though this was a take on regular people/regular things, which is something I attempt to stay away from as a science fiction and fantasy fiction writer).

May is about one week underway (and I have to get used to putting “5” or “May” on everything when I slap a date on it).

Make it an awesome weekend, with good memories, all right?

Until next time,
