Raven's Quest


Raven stood on the engraved cornice of the Metropolitan History Museum, rage battling with disbelief his plans had been thwarted yet again. 

His shaman had been sent inside to retrieve the Feathered Cloak and certain other artifacts and now the fool was bound in spirit ropes, blinded and running into walls! The simpleton must have somehow alerted the All-God’s human agents. 

Raven mind-spoke to his remaining forces, instructing them in the use of the enchanted stylus to mark the ropes…the magical shears to cut them. Shrinking them in size so they would draw less notice, he impatiently waved them inside.




This story was written for the triple Triple Visual Dare #4 flash fiction challenge and, again, qualifies for "bonus bonus" status for incorporating all three photo prompts into a single story of 100 words or less. I'm glad our esteemed hostess, Angela Goff, chose not to make it as difficult as she'd threatened to this week.

  3. Nice job! Yeah, it was tricky...but not too tricky... ;)

    Of course, one of these weeks, she's gonna really get us!

  4. I'm still chuckling over a bird-brain being the master mind.

  5. Another original twist from the master of originality himself - while hitting all three prompts - great work!! Once again you've penned something that reads like the beginning of a longer tale. One of these days I'm going to go spelunking through the Latinum Vaults and pick out my favorites, and send the Klingorengi forces over to make you finish at least one of them!! I think this would make my top five favorites. I doff my hat to you, sir!!
