The Forgotten (flash fiction)

The Forgotten

“So let me get this straight: she buys us, arranges us into decks, and then puts us into boxes, and that’s it. I thought we’d be more active.” Rofellos commented.

“I know. We all thought that. I really miss battle.” the Bloodbraid Elf replied.

I’m a Planeswalker, and all I do is sit around in this box.” Chandra complained as she flicked her long red hair out of her eyes. “I’m meant to be seen!”

“I want to breathe fire and destroy my enemies.” the Shivan Dragon chimed in.

“I’ve yet to see a battle.” the Dragonmaster Outcast stated.

“Be quiet all of you!” Radha ordered them. “As the Commander of this deck I need you all to be battle ready. All this complaining will hurt morale.”

“Trust the Commander to be loyal to the end.” Rofellos said rolling his eyes.

“At least she puts us in plastic sleeves and stores us in a box to keep us safe and protected. And she does take us out to look at occasionally.” Radha pointed out.

“Yes it’s always nice to get out of here, if only for a short time.” Chandra agreed.

“Still it would be nice to have a fight occasionally. Maybe we could fight one of her other decks sometime.” the Dragonmaster Outcast wondered.

“How about all those vampires in the box under us? I know they’re spoiling for a fight.” the Bloodbraid Elf suggested.

“We’ll see.” Radha told them.

Suddenly the box they were in moved, and the lid opened. Maybe this time there would be a battle…

This was just me musing about how I never play Magic anymore. Over the years I must have spent a lot of money on these cards *sigh*. Still, this isn’t the first time I’ve written about Magic the Gathering. The Battle is another.

Please support this blog – Ko-fi 🙂

  1. This is a fun little story. I actually felt bad for your Magic cards! Those poor fellas just want some battle. It reminds me a little bit of Toy Story. Good job! Did you end up playing with them after writing this?

  2. Ah, Magic: The Gathering! Used to collect cards from that, alongside Pokemon. Kamigawa and New Phyrexia were the last expansions I managed to catch, before I dropped the hobby when I went to college.

    Thank you for the nostalgia trip!
