Five-Hundred Word Challenge 311: Once Upon a Time Story

Once upon a time in a land far from here, there were events that lead to some sort of conclusion of considerable effect based on a scale of relativity.

To some, the effects were not that significant.
To others, the effects were very significant.

To the rest, the effects were neither here nor there.

The fact is that there was effects found in this conclusion.

What the effects were, no one knew.
Well, perhaps some people knew.
It does not matter for the telling of this story.

What matters is that there was a beginning, middle and ending and that it happened some time ago in a land far from here, wherever here may be.,

There were characters that performed actions.

There were reactions from other characters, as well as objects to the actions performed by the characters that lead to the initiation of the reactions.

There was also probably some sort of strife and torment, suffering and rising to the occasion, triumph of the will, the will to desire, the power to believe and all of the other things that usually go into a story of this kind of caliber.

The motivations of the characters were explored and there likely was some form of deconstruction into their desires in order to explore what makes us us and whether we should always try and seek to reach a conclusion no matter the cost, or if we should learn when to stop and let go of that which we desire before we lose everything and end up defeated by our own blindness.

There was a lot of journeying across the lands of old in order to find out the truth of the matter, assuming that there was indeed some form of truth in the matter at all.

The story could have had no conclusion whatsoever, which is still some sort of conclusion.
Well, there was a considerable effect based on a scale of relativity, so perhaps the lack of ending still being a conclusion was somewhat effective, depending on your point of view.

It may not have been effective whatsoever. Otherwise, it may have been very effective.

It may not have fallen either way on the scale of effectiveness.

What would it have been compared to to show how effective it is?

Well, to a giant chicken running through a city on some sort of unstoppable rampage, the ending may not have been very effective.

Otherwise, it may have been very effective it it was significantly more impactful than a giant chicken running through a city on some sort of unstoppable rampage.

Maybe it would be better to use some sort of snail as the weighting to test the relative effectiveness of the conclusion that this story has.

So suppose that there is a snail and it is eating a leaf, or something.
It is minding its own business, relaxing in the sun.

Then a huge cyber bird swoops down from the heavens and grabs the snail, then carries it away.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:11:44

I believe that this is one of the better things that I’ve recently written.

It is a little more cohesive than other recent posts and it also meanders enough for me to be satisfied.

Written at work.
