Inspiration Monday: Phantom Library

This is a prompt response for Inspiration Monday



by John Yeo

   Walter was a learned man, a man of many parts, who followed the spiritual uplifting occupation of haunting the words of eloquent spirits from heavenly dreaming spires. The universal leading fount of all that was known to be or not to be. He was interested in many things. In the olden days of books that burnt, Walter set the world on fire amanuensis was the key. Snotter was a drip feeder of the key facts that were daily spewed forth by the great man’s pen. Walter and Snotter were jolly good friends a team that would attempt to access the formidable phantom libraries of the believable, and approach the unbelievable with utmost caution. Walter one day approached the inner sanctum of the brotherhood of phantasmagorical imagination and asked for access to the innermost shelf of forbidden fruitfulness.

    “I have come here absolutely denatured, demanding access to the temple of garish ghostliness combined with glorious ghastliness, to study in the mystical mire of spiritual desire. I have paid the price of panicky fearfulness to extract the phantasmagorical from the fantastical mire of the Phantom Library.” He demanded, in a voice that betrayed nothing short of minor irritation, to the almost nonexistent invisible moronic entity at the portals of a cloudy cavernous Phantom Library.
Eerily empty shelves of phantom knowledge, loomed up menacingly in reply. Snotter attempted to gain entrance from the rear, however a fearsome wind blew him backwards.
A message flashed fearsomely on a crystalline screen. Sign in with your password or sign up with your phantom facts to gain access to the glugger search spook and the phantoms will access the knowledge from the phantasmagorical phantomime library. Glugger ghoulish ghostliness is here to pave the way forward.
Walter and Snotter were on the way to gain access to the magical mystical world of the fantastical Glugger search engine. The incredible effluence located in the glorious Glugger phantom library, brought amazing dot.com affluence to Walter and Snotter.

  2. I absolutely love the rhythm, alliteration, and loquacity! If anything, I want more of this. I want to know more about what is going on, and what this place is.

    However, I will say that this was difficult for me to follow. I am a little dyslexic, and I rely heavily on punctuation to tell me how words relate to each other. The lack of commas in the first paragraph threw me. Also, sometimes the word order is confusing, for instance: “Walter one day approached” does have alliterative value, but it threw me off when I was reading, whereas I don’t think “one day Walter approached” would have. But of course, this is simply a matter of preference.

    “spiritual uplifting occupation of haunting the words of eloquent spirits” – it’s a little awkward to use “spiritual” and “spirits” in the same sentence. It might be stronger as just “uplifting occupation”?

    But still, this is fantastic, in all good senses of the word. ^_^
