Queering the Pitch – #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

I got out of my time machine and approached the building cautiously.

Peeking in through the window, I saw that the bosses were all there, discussing the plot.

Tonight, they would be taking the decision that would result in the torture of billions of people across the world over the next 150 years.

But not if I had my way first.

My time machine had helped me get here, and my time bombs would help me stop them. I might die in the process, but I would ensure that the Terminator franchise does not get any more sequels after Judgement Day.

*************************************************************************************100 words.

Written as a part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The objective is to write a short story of 100 words or less based on the photo prompt given above. To read many more interesting and exciting stories based on this week’s prompt, visit HERE.

This is also my entry for the #AtoZChallenge and #BlogchatterA2Z. Today’s letter was Q, which, in my story, stands for Queering the Pitch.

    Judgement Day indeed

  2. Iain Kelly says:

    Haha – we’d all support this quest! I hear there is another one in the making, surely they should just give up!

  3. Meha Sharma says:

    Haha!! I am back. Good one

  4. athling2001 says:

    Finally! Thank God! Great story.

  5. subroto says:

    A worthy cause indeed. Where can we donate?

  6. Dale says:

    Buahahaha! Good one!

  7. yarnspinnerr says:

    The world saved …. for now at least. Nice read.

  8. draliman says:

    Ha! Not a fan of the later films, then…

  9. Ed Hoornaert says:

    Love this one! Now can you hop back in that time machine and get rid of any and more Marvel Studios sequels? After Black Panther, they should really really really really really stop milking their franchise for every last penny.

  10. Varad says:

    Lolol! 😛 Next stop: Dhoom and Golmaal franchises 😀

    • Ha ha ha, especially Golmaal man, what a letdown each and every sequel has been. Dhoom anyways was never great, but at least the first part showed some intent towards making a proper heist movie.

  11. Ha ha – loved your take on the photo prompt. (I want a time machine.)

    Where there’s a terminator, there’s always a hero. I hope.

  13. pennygadd51 says:

    I like the way you use the building in the prompt as well as the vaguely alien appearance of the artefact in the foreground.

  14. jillyfunnell says:

    Good thing he made it on time!

  15. lisarey1990 says:

    Excellent. So interesting. I hope they can save the day.

  16. Haha. No more terminator franchises. He saved the world indeed.

  17. Alice Audrey says:

    Yep, enough is enough. Bomb that timeline!

  18. Ha ha ha! Unexpected ending for sure. I can think of other franchises with cars that may be past their prime too. (And I say this as a fan).

  19. plaridel says:

    that wouldn’t be good news for mr. arnold and the franchise. he’s getting old anyway. 🙂

  20. gahlearner says:

    Hehehe. Enough is enough, indeed. Fun take on the prompt.

  21. Sarah Ann says:

    Great build of tension to that fun reveal. Have we really had enough though? 🙂

  22. The world always needs a hero. Thanks for stepping in there and saving mankind.

  23. Dear Anurag,

    Those sequels can be torture. Well done. 😀



  24. Ha… sequels upon sequel … torture indeed.

  25. Lynn Love says:

    Haha! Quite right – save the torture of diminishing sequels! Nice story
