The Ficly Element

Avatar Author: ethelthefrog Arms, legs, the usual. I value feedback, so feel free to rate my stories with a 1 or a 2. I only ask that you tell me why when you do so, so I can make my next story better. Read Bio

War was coming. The stones weren’t safe on Earth, so they came and took them away, leaving the archaeologist’s body for the vultures. Well, they were looking a bit thin.

Nothing is easy, though. Good attracts evil and great power attracts great evil. And Bruce Willis.

Anyway, Brucey is just about to take his cab for a 6-month overhall when a shipwrecked girl drops in, spouting a very peculiar language indeed. Fortunately, she’s pretty good with a front-kick and is able to beat up a roomful of lizards. Evil pops in at this point and makes off with a box that turns out to be empty. How fortuitous, therefore, that the diva is shot in the abdomen.

So they head off back to Earth, racing a big ball of hot, to see who can get to Egypt first.

Will we get another moon (62 miles? I think not.)? The fate of the universe hangs on a single match…

    A quick, fun read. Almost impossible to get the entire plot of a movie condensed into a ficlet, but you pulled out enough to make it recognizable, and enjoyable. Bravo!
