Sunday Writing Prompt #227 “Letters to Characters”

This challenge is to write a letter to a character from a book or movie as if they were a real person.

Full details here:

Dear Superman,
I know you can be pretty nifty in your movements, and you can puff from great distances, so is there any chance you can help us out here please?
I’m not writing for myself of course, just thousands of other pets terrified with the bangs, pops, whistles and whizzes of these blasted things called fireworks.
It’s not an everyday thing, just periodically between the end of October through to New Year, so hopefully wouldn’t take up much of your time or keep you away from other important things like Saving the World (Trump can write his own letter).

I’m hoping you can either blow them (out) to smithereens or gather them all up to whisk  away to another planet.

Thank you


I can think of another way to dampen their spirits, but I’m too polite to suggest it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. When I was a child I had Shepard mix who was terrified of fireworks he actually jumped through a glass door to escape the sound (luckily he was okay). So I feel you. In the town I live they have started using quiet fireworks they aren’t as loud out of respect for pets and refugees escaping war

    I hope he reads it and acts for Maggie….I know they terrify dogs and right now we are going into thunderstorm time….so far our little dog seems to be ok…..
