Now, to the stories!


Playing a solemn tune, the violinist pictured his daughter one last time, freckle by freckle, as the hungry waves of the Atlantic engulfed the mighty Titanic, digesting his lifeless physical form in seconds.


Gazing at the man who was on his knees before her, she answered ‘’If infinite parallel universes exist, I want to be your wife in every one of them.’’


The Human colonisers and Martian natives decided that war was not the best course and signed a peace treaty at the request of their respective governments but… Will the Martians really settle?


The headquarters of WHO was shifted to the Republic of Antarctica, a nation that was once an icy continent, as that was the only country that wasn’t under a totalitarian government… Yet.


Ron Weasley was well prepared for his potions exam that day, but little did he realise that the exam was actually on defence against the dark arts!

Moksha @Happy Panda

Manjiri @Penjiri

  2. I LOVED READING EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOUR STORIES!! You are a great storywriter, I’ve never seen anyone write in so many genres with this virtousity. I am in complete awe of your writing skills right now. I loved the fantasy story, let’s Ron Weasly somehow passes the exam 😄 and the sci-fi story. I really hope you’ll write more sci-fi, I am not someone who usually reads sci-fi but I’d love to read some more written by you. Also THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR NOMINATING ME, I am really looking forward to writing stories for this challenge. 😊💖

    • Aww thank you so so very much, my dearest friend! 💖 That’s high praise and I’m truly humbled to read your very very sweet comment. You’ve made my day!
      This was my first attempt at sci-fi and dystopian, however short.
      I don’t read or watch a lot of sci-fi either, so I hope the story I’m writing right now (it’s been in my drafts for the longest time now) turns out well. One sentence was a good warm up 😁
      Thanks again! 💖

  3. Wow, love your one line stories. I especially enjoy the historical one. Those violinists are etched in my memory forever as they played their joyful tunes while people ran amok on the sinking ship. The image has been stuck in our mind. Somehow I suppose all the violinists were frozen to death.

  6. One of the most poginant, single line stories I’ve ever read has been attributed, although unsubstantiated, to Ernest Hemingway, . . . “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
