X is for Xenocracy

I have a Choose Your Own Adventure story for you today!  This is the last one for the A to Z Challenge.  These little things have been fun, but also challenging.  Then again, I think that's the point of this, isn't it?

Today's word is: XENOCRACY

A xenocracy is a government by composed of a body of foreigners.  I decided to go the alien invasion route with this one.



Life post-invasion isn’t all roses, sure, but you can at least say that you snagged a decent job.  Okay, people in the street call you a traitor and throw things at you, but the benefits are good.
Well, they’re tolerable, anyway.  And pre-invasion you wouldn’t have been excited about cleaning the toilets for the new seven-foot-tall, green skinned leaders of the xenocratic government that now rules all of Earth.  Considering the other jobs available, though, you’ll take what you can get.  Most days, at least.
Today, however, you are about to deliver some unpleasant news.  All of the toilets in the palace are overflowing, and you suspect it was sabotage of a most disgusting nature.
When you get to the throne room, the door is guarded by a formidable man.  “There is a meeting at this time,” he says in a stout tone.  “Whatever business you have, it must wait.”

  1. This reminds me of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series I used to read as a kid. Very clever post!
    I'm visiting from the A to Z Blog Challenge. Best of luck in the last few days! X was hard for me. I think I'd pick "A"...now to go see what awaits...


  2. I was hoping it was a government composed of Warrior Princesses.
    But I guess that is a Xenacracy!
