Ah, L’amour

by on July 19, 2013

This was written for Trifecta’s weekend prompt, which was to use the words “water”, “ring”, and “stage”, plus thirty of our own. Roll film!

“Charlotte? I’ve got the ring.”

“Not now, Phil. I’m about to stage a Water Elf attack with my guild, and…wait. What?”

“Will you?”



“Your water elves are attacking.”

“Let ‘em.”

  1. SUCH sweetness on a Friday morning. My favorite part, the “SMERP” 😉

  2. I sense a new guild forming.

  3. Heheh…Now, what if that were a Boss fight instead of plain ol’ Water Elves? Very sweet. Reminded me of Saturday nights with my husband, playing LOTRO.

    • I haven’t played LOTRO myself; I confess, my gaming experience was mostly Carmen Sandiego, and Solitaire. 🙂

  4. Smerp

    Love it! Very sweet use of 33 words. 🙂

    Smerp! Lovely!!

  6. 😀

  7. ADORABLE! I lovelovelove the ending, you goof, too sweet 😉

    • I figured, after zombie penguins and Evil Aurora, I should go light for this one. Glad it worked. 🙂

  8. As a gamer, this really made me laugh and I have to agree with Kir, smerp is amazing.

  9. Water elves…zombie penguins…I never know what to expect here 🙂

    How sweet that love trumps attacking water elves (for the moment at least).

    • I read a good deal of Douglas Adams and his random British humor as a child. I think that has influenced my writing a bit. 😀

  10. That is really sweet.. 🙂

  11. I really like the way you layed this out, especially the last two lines.

  12. Smerp

    L’Amour indeed! Fun 33 words!

  13. I’ve never thought to use “smerp” to describe a kiss. (At least, I hope it was supposed to be a kiss…) I’m going to pretend this is an exchange between two geeky gamers.

    • That’s what it was supposed to be, I think. (Eek! Multiple interpretations!) For some reason, I use smerp a lot when I describe characters kissing. It seems so evocative!

  14. water elves!!!! get ’em . . . 🙂

  15. Aw, sweet gamer love! Smerp is wonderful. Fun use of the prompt words!

    • The ironic thing is, I’m not even a gamer. Not unless one counts Carmen Sandiego. 😛

  16. I liked this story and smerp is perfect.

  17. Haha! I don’t know what smerp means but I’m going to start using it every chance I get! 😀
