Where and when (Friday Fictioneers)

March 2, 2023


No one will notice me hacking into the spacetime vortex from here. I’ve even bought laundry to strengthen my disguise. A writer waiting for her washing. I’ve been in this spacetime for a few weeks. It’s not a bad time to come back to. I mean, it’s not the best… too much racism and online hating, still… It’s not a bad space either. Little town with little surveillance. War hasn’t started. It’s nice, quiet. Boring. The uproar over my crimes should have settled, I’ll pop back to check on my parents—if I can hack my timeline and jump safely.

This is a Friday Fictioneers prompt

  1. “War hasn’t started” is a lovely throw-away touch

  2. Better be careful they don’t get stuck as a writer, there’s no escape from that! Great imagination 🙂

  3. This feels like part of a much longer piece. I liked “war hasn’t started yet” line too.

  4. This definitely sounds like a good premise for a movie or novel. I could see a lot of fun with a criminal hanging out in another spacetime, before the war starts. 🙂

  5. This story definitely has legs 🙂

  6. Great time travel story, but with a veiled threat hanging over our heads with that war line.

  7. Interesting place to jump to. I wonder where I would go if I could go back in time? Well done!

  8. Classic “Laurie Bell.” You can make a shiver out of just about any prompt 🙂

  9. Dear Laurie,

    You packed a lot of questions into this piece. 😉



  10. You made me think of the movie, “In Bruges” in a good way. Hope it all works out for her.

  11. Interesting story. When you’re trying to hack time, you need a safe place to work. Nicely done, Laurie.
