Mistranslation

by on March 6, 2015

Lord Flarkanian the Invincible had, so far, earned his sobriquet. When he and his undefeated army surrounded the Grey Castle and demanded Princess Madeleine’s surrender, he foresaw no difficulty. He eagerly anticipated adding the princess to his harem. Rumor said she had a fiery spirit.

What she actually had was the ability to conjure flame.

Lord Flarkanian the Crispy learned, too late, the perils of rumor.

This story features one of the alternate-universe versions of Madeleine Smith, aka Gaseous Girl. It was also written for the Chimera 66 challenge by  Grammar Ghoul Press. Thanks for reading!

  1. LOL! “The Crispy.” Good write!

  2. I was about to LOL about the same thing. You had me at “The Crispy!”

  3. Haha! “Lord Flarkanian the Crispy.” I love that. I guess he died in a moment of “burning passion.” Funny one!

  4. Fiery spirit, indeed. Good one. And I like that it’s a side-snippet of the Gaseous Girl story. 🙂

  5. You are hilarious…. fiery spirit… quite literally!

  6. Naming yourself “the Invincible” is a sure sign that you haven’t thought through your future legend packaging.

    • As the Doctor observed, it’s like Staal the Undefeated. What happens if you do get defeated? “Stall the Not Quite So Undefeated Anymore But Never Mind?”
