“No, no I don’t hate them, they are just very shallow,” said lieutenant Snyak, licking her exquisite middle eyebrow in place.
“Ha… indeed. I asked one, what he worshipped… guess what it said?”
Captain Au’rin nestled his front tentacle between Snyak’s second and third chin. She sighed, vacation on Earth was better than a weekend on Snot.
“No idea… was it paper or plastic?”
“You bet… humans and their hallow transactions.”
“We gave them Facebook and Bitcoins… now we own them.”
Snyak snared a man with her tongue and swallowed him whole.
“I love lieutenants with healthy appetite”
Yes, that looks like a spaceship so why not go for some Alien invasion. Probably not a unique story this week, but it was the best I could come up with tonight.
Friday Fictioneers is managed by Rochelle who deals us a picture every week. We write and then read what other has written. This is an excellent way of learning to write.

I knew there had to be something bad behind Facebook and Bitcoin!
And twitter they use to communicate with each other…
Twitter is definitely the worst.
Maybe the entire internet in general is an other worldly plot to mess us up completely
I sometimes think so… but I keep sane by writing fiction … sane sane sane… (almost)
Yes I can believe that helps
HA! This is what I’d imagine The Twilight Zone would do if it was being made today.
This is not fiction…it’s for real
Surely Facebook is worth occasionally getting eaten… 🙂
There is still safety in numbers… I didn’t tell you though that they have infected our brains already so this is just expected that you would say.
Your imagination took off into outer space this time!
It was fun imagining how gargantuan alien lizards would be.
At first I was confused by her licking her eyebrow. This was just fun. Thank you for the interplanetary giggle.
It’s fun trying to imagine alien lifeforms… I don’t think we would find them very attractive…
I was going to comment on a woman who could lick her eyebrows, but thought better of it.
Making the internet the villain of your story makes for an excellent allegory. Truly, people are swallowed whole by the greed stoked so assiduously by social media. And making your serious allegory read humorously is a little stroke of genius!
I can just imagine its tongue coiled around my neck…
Yikes. These space aliens must have been big enough to take up a whole lot of space here on earth. That’s quite a picture I have in my mind now, of this icky creature picking up a man and swallowing him whole. Shiver!
I think they found us quite icky too… yummy and icky if that make sense… like eating crayfish.
It is good to recognize the difference of others, difference is not ugly, only different.
I like differences as long as it refrains from eating me alive 🙂
I love the sexual innuendo between these two as they casually eat up mankind…
Food can be an erotic thing… maybe we should be glad that they didn’t favor playing with food.
Absolutely, it is…
Yes. Like cats do!!
Light, humorous, and bloodthirsty, what’s not to like about this one. Bjorn!
If we are going to get eaten… why not in a lighthearted way.?
Completely bonkers!! Love it especially the middle eyebrow, class!!
There is nothing better than an alien with three eyes, and seven chins.
I was wondering in which direction the ‘snot’ in the title was going to go. Luckily it was another planet 😉
Hmm … I think it would have been even luckier if the aliens had gone to Snot instead.
I always KNEW Facebook was a part of some giant conspiracy!
The strategy is to turn our brains to tapioca… the aliens love tapioca.
Man eating aliens! This is scary, indeed.
Even scarier that we let them do it… be very careful
yes its the FB…..
I’m with C.E. on this one. It was more fun to read than a barrel of bat shit eating monkeys on roller train.
Or the brain sucking ant eaters…
Horrible to contemplate. I think I will log off now. Nicely written.
I have some good Bitcoin investment just for you…
Perfectly sinister in every word. Fun and chilling. What a combo ..!!! 😀
Laughing in the face of doom we have to be able to do.
I find that when I’m afraid of something – ie: a bug or something – I laugh. I guess it’s a way of dispelling the fear. : )
Oh dear, Earth has attracted alien tourists who love the fresh food. I hope they paid their hotel bill.
I think that I would be OK if they didn’t pay as long as they leave and never come back.
humans learn very fast. it’s only a matter of time when they outsmart the invaders. 🙂
I wonder… with our brains turned to tapioca by Facebook, we would walk willingly into the mouths of the aliens.
Sounds like Au’rin has more than a bit of a thing about Snyak and her exquisite chins. Now you’ve told us where Bitcoin came from too.
And where the money is going…
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but these two seem to be happy, gorging on humans. I know a few they could snack on if they want
Me too… and some of them could by quite a happy meal.
Wonderfully weird and exotic – I like your story very much. Especially the intimacies involving nestling his tentacle between Snyaks 2nd & 3rd chin !Think you have a feel for sci-fi- nicely done.
I think sometimes the most interesting thing is trying to imagine what aliens lifeforms look like
Very inventive. Thank god WordPress doesn’t count!
Rightly said, that’s what humans are – shallow and that’s what they crave – plastic and paper.
