FF – Archvillain Jr

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. This week’s photo was contributed by Roger Bultot.

I take a picture of myself… taking a picture of myself! A loop is created… the universe will collapse! I can feel atoms beginning to unravel… I look outside… all is darkness… IT WORKED bwahahaha!

“Mum! Mum! It’s all dark outside! I’ve destroyed the universe!”

“The sun’s gone down, dear. It’s late. Go to bed. School tomorrow.”

“Darn. Therefore, mother, I shall try two mirrors facing each other. The infinite loop will surely destroy the universe bwahahaha!”

“That’s nice, dear. Now go to bed.”

A reprieve for life as we know it. Until tomorrow, universe. Bwahahaha!

    Impecable logic

    Great take, Ali

    Pretty drastic measures to take just because he didn’t do his homework… Couldn’t he catch a fake cold, like other kids? lol, this seems like something Calvin would have done.

      This definitely sounds like Calvin!

      Ha, yes, it’s a very Calvin thing to do. And his Mum would react in much the same way!

    Dear Ali,

    That might be a better excuse than “the dog ate my homework.” Still I suspect the sun will come up tomorrow and he will have to go to school. 😉 Cute story.

      Dear Rochelle,
      I suspect you’re right. And ironically the homework was “write a fantasy essay”… 🙂


  5. July 28, 2021 at 1:10 pm

    I want your imagination!


    • July 29, 2021 at 5:10 am

      I may need it for next week’s story 🙂


  6. July 28, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    Damn. I was hoping for a lie in tomorrow!


    • July 29, 2021 at 5:12 am

      Have one! There’ll be no point getting up with the universe getting destroyed and all.

    I like how his mother is completely unimpressed. This must happen often! 😀


  9. July 28, 2021 at 3:18 pm

    I love the boundless scope of a child’s imagination. You described it well here.


  10. July 28, 2021 at 3:37 pm

    Reminds me of Calvin in “Calvin and. Hobbes.” Only this kid is a little loonier than Calvin 🙂


    • July 29, 2021 at 5:17 am

      He’d be even worse if he had his own Hobbes egging him on 🙂

    It’s hard to beat an inept supervillain. Well, they’re easy to beat just not for humor.


  12. July 28, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    I enjoyed the way the boy started to panic when he thought maybe he really had destroyed the universe!

    Tough luck young man. Keep trying. The universe loves a committed trier. 🤣

    Elsewhere in the multiverse, three parallel universes ceased to exist, and another just had all its laws of physics changed.

      He’s just not thinking of the consequences of his actions. Kids…


  15. July 29, 2021 at 4:02 pm

    I was always wondering how many mirrors it’d take. Bwahahaha! 🙂


    • July 30, 2021 at 6:18 am

      I hope I haven’t given you any universe-breaking ideas… 😮

    he’s got some imagination. he could be a great writer someday. 🙂

    A very clever story. I really enjoyed! Like mentioned above, very Calvin-esq. =)


    • July 30, 2021 at 6:19 am

      I’m glad you liked it! I wasn’t even thinking Calvin and Hobbes, but now people have mentioned it, it is!

    A universal villain in the making; will he be in the next James Bond film?


    • July 31, 2021 at 6:02 am

      He has already asked his mum for an evil villain cat…


  19. July 30, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    Throughout history, people have been ignored when they should have been listened to. Not sure he’ll turn out to be one of them though! Nice one Ali.


    • July 31, 2021 at 6:03 am

      He has high hopes, but I believe you could be correct!


  20. July 30, 2021 at 1:57 pm

    You have to love the imagination of children. Of course, the more he tries this tricks…


  21. July 31, 2021 at 1:48 pm

    Loved it, the childhood first steps of a future arch criminal.


  22. August 1, 2021 at 9:31 am

    I love the ‘BWahahaha .Let the magic happen, except mother gets in the way. Imaginative take on the prompt Ali.


    • August 1, 2021 at 3:30 pm

      He’ll be at it again tomorrow, just as soon as he has finished his homework 🙂


  23. August 1, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Confess. That was you as a little kid, wasn’t it? 🧐😀
