Party Music (3-28-18)


[CW] Flash Fiction Challenge! Location: A Birthday Party | Object: A Radio



"Are you sure about this?" Posie asked his wife. She carried their daughter, Threnody, while they walked into a large, black portal floating in their living room. Two men awaited them in the dust covered wasteland on the other side. The tall one wore a polka dot party hat on his wavy, golden mane. The short one wore his party hat to the side of his bright blue mohawk. Its top tips barely reached the tall man’s armpits.


"Relax, honey. It'll be fun," Robin reassured her husband. She set Threnody on the ground and the toddler bolted to the short man. "Besides, it's her birthday and she wanted to."


"VEGAS!" the little girl yelled with glee. The short man knelt, ignoring the dirt, to give the little girl a hug.


"Threnny!" Vegas smiled and lifted the orange eyed girl to swing her around. "How's the birthday girl?"


"I'm two!" she answered. The two laughed between themselves while Robin and Posie looked to Regal.


"Are we ready?" Regal asked. The parents nodded, then Regal nodded to Vegas.


"Alright, shortcake. This Earth is empty, and I'll keep your parents safe. Go nuts, show us what you can do." Threnody looked around at the adults, then sighed.


"Daddy, you forgot it!" She stamped her foot in the dirt. Posie sighed, then turned to Regal.


"Hey Regal, portal please? " Regal smiled and pointed at Threnody. Posie turned his attention back to her. Threnody pulled something out of a small black hole, like the one they stepped through.


"I got it!" The two year old set her favorite radio down on the dirt, then pressed the PLAY button. Then she clapped her hands together and rubbed them while she began to glow with a golden aura. Music filled the air. "Now it's a party!"

Hey folks, welcome to my writing blog. This is where I'll collect my writings to share with the internet. Hopefully you'll find something here to entertain you.


I'm in the process of moving. All new content will be found on my new blog at Hugoverse.info.

Hugoverse: I have most of my universe planned out already, and I'm using writing prompts to fill it out while practicing my writing. A side effect of choosing a new prompt every day is that the story will hop around a lot.

Hugoverse Guidebook

This is where I will start storing information about my Universe to help add some context to my short stories. 
Magic: Magic is a natural force present on all Earths, though not all Earths have a population that can tap into it. Once a Soul learns how to tap into magic on one Earth they can tap into the magic from other Earths.Nanos:
Microscopic machines that excel at efficiency. As a result they work together and learn to optimize the tasks they're trained for. On some Earths they allow Zeroes to tap into magic, while on other Earths they evolved to mimic magic. AlterNet: A network that allows users from alternate universes to communicate with each other. It is an Earth that is completely dominated by nanos. Earths with the right technology can project their consciousness to that Earth, and the nanos will form an artificial body for their consciousness. This is primarily used for gaming, and has essentially become a giant cross universe MMO. (AlterNet)[Whispering]: Whispering is an …
