Journal of Professor Timothy Eliot : Friday Fictioneers

3 AM

Hoping world will find out one day, how we battled the Vamwolves. The archenemies joined hands and blood. They developed resistance to sun and silver.

They never thought Emily – one of them would betray them. Together we discovered their weakness in brass. But only the last knob in my desk remains.

8 AM

Emily shared the biggest secret to save humanity. We are about to invoke Devil’s Vortex to pull all of them to hell. Doubt if we would survive.

8 PM

It worked – all gone. We will go soon. Emily revealed that she will finally reunite with her father.


Written for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by ever gracious Rochelle. The rest of the Fictioneers are here –

Its been a crazily hectic weekend. My apologies to all those who liked and commented for not replying to them on time !

  1. What a nice catch on those missing knobs. It’s interesting how people find different things in a same photo. Great story.


  2. Emily, what a heroine to share the secret… the diary is a great form to write the story.


  3. Very clever, and quite sinister take on the prompt. Well done!


  4. Good on Emily. And bravo with the Vamwolves, fearsome creatures that they are.


  5. Great style there – hard to fit it all into 100w so had funny side, but atmospheric.


  6. Great way to tell the story. Kudos.


  7. I like the resistance to sun and silver then discovering the brass knobs!!! Didn’t even notice they were gone. Well done.


  8. The missing nobs were what I first noticed too, but I couldn’t come up with anything interesting to write about them.

    You did! 🙂


  9. Indrajit, Good story. Using a journal added a lot of atmosphere to this. I didn’t catch on to what Vamwolves meant until I read the comments. That’s quite original. Well written. 🙂 —Susan


    • Tried to explain Vamwolves – when I wrote that archenemies joined hand and “blood” 🙂

      guess it was not so obvious even then.. thanks for reading and appreciating Susan !


  10. An interesting take on the prompt Horus. I very much like the concept and the format.

  16. Very creative and a great story to match. Missing brass knobs that saved the world!


  17. i like how you presented the fantasy piece in journal style. i didn’t even notice the missing knobs. well done. 🙂


  18. I like how the olde worlde look of the desk gave you a sense of the character of the professor – I’m seeing a kind of Victorian gentleman adventurer 🙂


    • Actually Professor Timothy Elliot is a fictional Vampire Slayer – so I connected the old world look with the character and added the flavor of Emily to give it a twist ! 🙂

      Thanks for your appreciation Blake !


  19. I like style and presentation. yeah for Emily!
