FSF: The Elixir of Limitlessness


It's time once again for Five Sentence Fiction.  The prompt for this week is LIMITLESS.

Those of you who have missed previous chapters of my ongoing story can find it all on this PAGE.

Unchained
Chapter 40: The Elixir of Limitlessness

The small vial Warberry had handed Ylana contained a soft pink liquid called the “Elixir of Limitlessness.”  Why it had to have such a philosophical-sounding name, she could only guess.  Maybe everything on this world had to have the air of mystery about it.

In essence, this elixir was supposed to, in limited cases, turn the impossible into that which is merely unlikely (apparently it would never be enough to save the planet from the supposed guarantee of doom-she even made sure to ask).

She hovered above Nara’s sickbed, ready to administer the treatment, her stomach in knots as she wondered where she would go from here should this fail.

  1. We are so incredible restricted in our possibilities!

    That is why we dream about limitless power to rule over the Universe.

    You write so well, this few sentences show our great failure and our greater wish to transform our desires in reality.

    Beautiful! I like your tale no end!

  66. Elixirs are great because you never know what will happen or where they can take you. I use an elixer in my books but its a drug my protagonists uses to stay away. He gets hooked on them and it contributes to his descent into madness and ultimately his demise.

    ReplyDelete
  67. My first thought was, "Write a five sentence paragraph well enough to grab the reader? A true challenge." And, you pulled it off very well. I'm wondering what's going to happen to the poor soul receiving the Elixir of Limitlessness. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  68. Love your five-sentence story. That takes quite a bit of skill to tell a tale in so few words. And you've been blitzed!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Happy Blitz Day! Hope it's limitless!

    ReplyDelete

  72. Man.. I could use some of that right now!
    Happy Blitz Day :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. What a creative blog and so much going on - a reflection of your mind, I'm sure. Elixirs seldom enter my vocabulary and it was fun to think about one. I enjoyed the visit.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Intriguing...I wonder if I could use some of that elixir to get me through my upcoming Master's degree!

    Cheers!
