1993, a Science Fiction story | SparkaTale



By: Ryan Funk

Status: Completed


Blowing out the birthday candles on his 27th birthday, Neil Smart's wish for nostalgia is about to come true, as he wakes up the following morning in his seven year old body twenty years in the past. Of course, things are not always as we remember them, and Neil is about to re-learn that there are perks and responsibilities associated with being a child, just as there are for being an adult, and that some things are best left in the past.

      This is actually quite interesting, although it is short. It also seems to be self-autobiographical, based around the life of the author. It`s like your character is living as a child in his dream, but still has the mind of an adult. It makes me think about what I`ll think of my past years from now.

      I love your time travel stories. I sometimes feel nostalgic myself, going back to my roots, remembering events that occurred. Would be good to go back and try and make a difference for the future.

      Reminds me of a combination of "Big," and "Back To The Future."

      Loved it, very adventurous!!

      Great idea indeed. I think it would be weird to experience something like this, from both points of view, Neil's and his friends/parents. Nice job on this one.

      Pretty good for a short story. Was this your story made or have you had more practice?

      Thank you Mary! This was not my first story, I wrote it about two years ago. It's probably somewhere near my fiftieth story, so I've had a bit of practice.
