Friday Fictioneers – Tupilakosaurus

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson

No maps lead to this trackless place. A white landscape, a white sky, and a desolate biting wind. Yet here, half glimpsed in the ice, a dark and massive shape.

Snow rimes my eyelashes. This land is so terribly silent. Once though it was lush and tropical, and this beast undulated in the warm Tethys Sea.

That sea has long vanished. Once there were maps, but they led to a different place.



Friday fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Wisoff Fields to write a 100-word story in response to a photo prompt. You can find other stories here

    1. I didn’t at all imagine a dystopian future. Merely an Antarctic scientific expedition to find dinosaur bones. But I’m tickled that people have read another story, as readers do


  1. I was just reading an article the other day about creatures that can survive at the deepest levels of the ocean, where the cold is absolute and the light is unknown. They’re all tiny, though,—maybe with just this one exception you’ve created 🙂
