Literature / Aivoton Aikamatka

Aivoton Aikamatka (Finnish for 'Brainless Time Travel') is a Finnish web novel written by web author Rupert F. The first seven parts of the series were originally released on DeviantArt in 2009, but in August 2011 the series was started again in Blogger.

The story in a nutshell: 12 year old Mike Thurson is one fateful night kidnapped by ferocious Space Pirates for unknown reasons and taken to the 2500's. There (or then?) he and the privateers quickly get tangled into a mess concerning a valuable artifact. Hilarity Ensues.

This series provides examples of:

  • Coat, Hat, Mask: Doctor Ego wears a wizard hat, long purple coat and bandages to conceal his face. Does this make him any less conspicuous, well...
  • Comically Missing the Point: Jin Fu, after Mike hears him calling the pet monkey using mandarin chinese:
    Mike: "Mandarin, eh?"
    Jin Fu: "No, that's a monkey. Don't they teach this kind of stuff to you at schools in the 1900's?"
