Friday Fictioneers : 9th November 2018

Many thanks to JS Brand who provided the photo for this week’s Friday Fictioneers, and of course to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the weekly challenge.
It was a classic piece, entitled ‘How Others See Us.’
The curves and angles represented internal organs and limbs, a confused mass of entanglement amid bodily mechanics.
The wood-carver said his inspiration came from a TV show of how aliens found a lump of living human flesh in a crashed spaceship and saved it. Everything worked, but they had no guide of how to put it back together.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    A very plausible explanation, how on earth would they know what went where? Great take.

    Fun take Di, we are put together quite oddly, aren’t we?!

  5. Yes I can see the interesting intestines… but it’s hard to put back together.

  6. Sadje says:

    Cleverly explained. 😊

  7. That’s a very unique take on the prompt, Di! Working organs that can’t be put back together into what they used to be!

  8. Perhaps that’s what we are supposed to look like!

    Urk, I’m imagining being the poor person badly reassembled…

  10. Dear Di,

    This is reminiscent of one of my favorite Star Trek episodes. Well done.



  11. like a human jigsaw, oh my God Ive just recalled the Human Centipede! Great piece, but not happy about the memory!!

  12. Abhijit Ray says:

    Strangely, I also felt at a first glance, it looked like internal organs of a human.

  13. Very clever take on the prompt, nicely done! 🙂

  14. Dale says:

    That was so much fun… can you imagine if they had images created by Picasso? Hey… maybe they did base themselves on that 😉

  15. elappleby says:

    I saw intestines too. An interesting take on the prompt, I enjoyed your little tale.

  16. granonine says:

    The possibilities there are infinite 🙂

  17. They need a manual, obviously, the type you get for cars
