A Star is Born: #FridayFictioneers #FridayFotoFiction


The stage is on fire, as Jackson Maine belts one score after another. The audience is cheering non-stop, gyrating to the glorious moments.

The atmosphere is phenomenally charged.

Ally is nervous as hell. It’s her first performance ever, to a packed audience of over ten-thousand. Never in her wildest dreams had she thought a chance meeting with Jackson would land her centerstage. Real time.


It’s Ally’s turn to go now.

She and Jackson step up the stage with a duet. But it’s Ally who spins “Shallow” into a power ballad.

The crowd breaks into a frenzy. Thunderous applause follow.

A star is born.






This piece is draws a page from one of my favourite movies, A Star is Born, played by the very talented Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. I’m a die hard fan of their performances and the songs, (sung by them) in this incredible film. Do watch it, if you still haven’t. 



Written as part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by the lovely, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details here). The idea is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt above.

  1. You have no idea how much I love this song & the movie. This movie is my favorite of all time and all the songs. Not so much because of the singers, but the words and the melody. It’s fantastic. aughhhhhhhh Now I have to go watch the movie. I’m not so much a fan of lady gaga, but I am the song/words and music. It’s just fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Hey, why don’t you come over and we’ll watch it together. ~hehehe~ Luv ya girlfriend!!! HUGS

  2. One never knows what can come of a chance meeting, fame, romance, friendship… I was once murdered during a chance meeting. I’m feeling much better now though.

  3. Love the video here, among the best things on YouTube (wink!)
    Your story expertly describes the impact of the girl singer on the song and the audience.

  4. I loved the movie, too (I loved the Barbra Streisand/Kris Kristofferson one and have seen it so many times.)
    Fun take, Natasha.

  5. Dear Natasha,

    I haven’t seen the movie–yet. Your story makes me want to. Nicely done.
