Malignant Narcissist copyright 2012 Ilyan Kei Lavanway

malignant narcissist buzzard, This buzzard image is provided by Madison Woods for the weekly 100-word flash fiction challenge, Friday Fictioneers. My July 13, 2012 contribution is titled Malignant Narcissist. You can guess who I am talking about. Read the story at

Like a buzzard perched ominously atop the charred remnants of a tree overlooking the decimation of a nation, he stares down his nose at the cameras, opens his mouth, and hemorrhages another gush of lies. He stands in the pitch black of midnight, declares the sun is shining, and expects you’ll believe him. Wielding nefarious sorcery, he gets inside heads. Insanity. Gullibility the curse. Swollen fables the allure. Charisma belies his Luciferian agenda. The God-fearing arm themselves. They gather in churches and send forth trained defenders to retrieve the stores of food concealed in private homes. Unseen angels stand ready.

  1. Wow, that took a different direction than I’d imagined. I particularly like “Charisma belies his Luciferian agenda. ” As always, I’m thankful for the angels standing by and the Lord behind them!

  2. flyoverhere says:

    Very descriptive, good read. I am relating this to events happening now….

  3. boomiebol says:

    very well done!!! “hemorrhages another gush of lies” wow…mine is

  4. Adam Ickes says:

    I can’t help but think of a politician when I read this. Probably the ‘hemorrhages another gush of lies’ has something to do with that.

  5. Carrie says:

    could be applied to a few politicians I know…

  6. I like the word ‘Luciferian’ and it was all hoghly apocalyptic which always makes for a good read!

  7. Nasty! And timeless. It could be Ancient History or Now. And that’s the most frightening part of it! Mine’s on the list.

  8. TheOthers1 says:

    I could’ve swore you were talking about a politician. Maybe I’m reading into this what I want though. You definitely paint a picture of a bad man, but bad in a way that’s not overtly apparent. Thanks for stopping by my place to read my offering!

  9. Dark, and chilling. The angels are hope, as is the best of human nature. Well done.

    Thanks for your comment on ours.

    Awesome! Awesome! Unfortunately I’ve encountered, in very close quarters, someone in ministry who fits this description. The poster child for Narcissism. You described him to a “T”. I’ve know a few others in church situations. Sad but true, they prey on their congregations without conscience and feel they have the divine right of kings.
    Thanks for commenting on mine.
    For anyone else who might happen by:

  11. What a metaphor, paints quite a picture for those who see the buzzard, for others are seeing quite another bird altogether.
    I’m in this week for the first time, I do hope you’ll visit:

  12. JKBradley says:

    All I kept thinking was this must be a politician he’s writing about. Nicely done.

  13. That’s a pretty visceral reaction to a poor innocent scapegoat 😉 Lots of metaphor hiding in those words and I enjoyed the way you wielded your mighty pen.

  14. hemorrhages another gush of lies-has to be my favorite line in this piece. You’ve done a very nice job setting the scene and creating a vivid character description. Great job!

  15. dmmacilroy says:

    Dear Ilyan,

    Be careful or you’ll end up on his list. Nice ‘story’.
