Friday Fictioneers – The Dunny on Dune View


There are no dunes on Dune View. Only scrubby marsh—land too poor to develop, left to creatures that slink and wriggle. And above the scrub, ranks of bungalows march down the hill in tight formation.

They should never have zoned this green space residential. But a planning committee trip to the sister project in the Virgin Islands swung the deal.

The crapper was supposed to be a pointed joke. But it became a feature, the only one in a featureless landscape. And after adding the second story, we became celebrities—we have a voice, but the wrong one.


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. Creatures that slink and wriggle–are we dealing with politicians again? Love you last line. I had to go back and read this twice, looking for any little gems I may have missed. Well-crafted!
