This week, I am honored to be the guest “host” on Madison Woods’ blog for the Friday Fictioneers. Madison posted another challenging photo prompt, which moved me to write something completely outside of my usual genre. I don’t know how successful I was, but I enjoyed it! And, I’m looking forward to reading the variety of stories this photo prompted.
Please feel free to leave a link to your blog with your comments.
A Brief History of the Pernicious Pod
The Pod arrived on Earth from the planet Iniquitous, more than four hundred years ago. Documents left by the aliens were transcribed by cryptologic linguists centuries later and indicated the creatures were sent to Earth with the objective of mating with various life forms in an effort to inconspicuously occupy and take over the planet.
Unfortunately, the scientific community of Iniquitous did not anticipate the Pods’ primary source of attraction would be rocks, which they apparently mistook for Earth Pods.
Hypothesis: The Pods failed in their attempt to take over the planet, but they went out smiling.
