Flash 55 meets Raven

With a nod to Raven and Quilly
( This week's Raven's words were horrible as usual)

Every week a nice lady named Raven gives us fifteen words and phrases to use in a story. Here we try to use those words and phrases in a flash 55.

A biographical story must include my operatic soap opera about stuffed animals that need anger management because of paint splatters and bubble gum on the garden gate and my fear that the gentle Spring rain turning into a mammoth downpour of biblical proportions will lead to a seizure with paralysis and wrinkles on my body.

And Now for something completely different. A flash 55 quivel. Something that looks like a poem, uses at least three of Quilly’s words and has five words to a line for eleven lines. Because Quilly changed the rules this week each line will now have a Quilly word this week only.

Hitonious is what he said
The fracas left her dead
The volgivagant had his crew
Not mellifluous was his brew
O bacchante yes they were
Their ebullient behavior killed her
With casuistry the lawyer showed
Specious logic dumped a load
Then the perspicacious DA read
Antediluvian evidence they didn’t shred
Anopisthograph with a guilty thread.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.


  1. You dragons continue to amaze me week after week after week. Excellent Fandango :)

  2. Great quivel and good job flashing.

  3. heheheh. I sit her with glee as I read your posts. As I look at the dragons I think about introducing mine...

  4. OH great stuff Fandango - you're very clever for a dragon! ;)

  5. Oh MY. A good read, I am pretty certain, now off for a dictionary.

  6. wow, this is spectacular. way to go, dragons

  7. Hmmm Hmmm....
    And me without my dictionary!
    I'm sure this has a meaning that I'm not quite sure of yet. But Hey THANKS!
    The bottom line is that you are being creative, and I hope you have a little fun in the process.
    Thanks for visiting me and other 55ers as well.
    I appreciate it greatly.
