Creating a credible alien abduction story requires research into the other alien abduction stories. Discover elements that are similar in all abduction stories and include these details in your work of fiction. Consistency, not creativity, is the key to writing a believable alien story. Read on to learn how to write credible alien abduction stories.

1-Read published abduction stories as research before writing an alien abduction story. Watch interviews with individuals who claim to have been abducted. Create a believable abductee by giving your character the attributes of a real abductee.

2- Imbue your story with a sense of disorientation and wrongness. Create abductees that are unwilling and horrified by the alien abduction experience. Remove self-control from the actions of the abductee. Give all control of human physical motion to the aliens.

3-Allow only telepathic communication between aliens and abductees. Developing an alien language immediately tips others off that your account is not credible. Detailing an alien ship is acceptable

4-Describe alien abductors as small gray creatures with pointed chins, large eyes and only holes for a nose. Include a taller alien if you want to write about medical experiments.

5-Detail extensive physical exams performed by the aliens on their human abductees. Describe medical procedures that are invasive in nature and leave marks on the body. Give your abductee unexplained scars and marks to enhance the story.

6-Include time loss in your story. Detail how the abductee returns to the abduction site having no memory of how long they were gone and what occurred. Write of a traumatic event or therapy that brings repressed, credible memories to the surface.

7-Set your story in a time or place that has reported UFOs or odd celestial events. Combine reality and fiction to create the most credible alien abduction story.

May I ask what type of reaction you were looking for, in the sense of the intent behind what you wrote here.

Is this an open challenge to abductees, wherein you see all stories related to this phenomenon as a fanciful imagination seeking desperate attention.


This is a guide or advice to those who wish to write scifi to conduct a research of the subject first before delving into such an endeavor?


A message to abductees to perhaps embelish or be more creative in how they express their experiences in order to be more entertaining for those who read what they wrote?


something different, which you will be kind enough to explain so a misinterpretation as to intent does not occur.

just curious on how to takes this.

How about this:

All of a sudden Alistair Lyons was before them—one black and the other utterly white. They stood side-by-side, erect as ramrods, with globular heads and eyes that penetrated deep into him. Their eyes seemed to sink into an infinite vacuum of space below his consciousness and swap information about him. The black one examined him with what he could only describe as an intense disinterest, while the white one seemed almost on the verge of an emotional collapse at the sight of him.
“We will not harm you,” said the white one. After it spoke, he realized that its lips had not moved—that it had used telepathy.
“Be a tame point of consciousness,” advised the black one. This time he saw lips move, and the voice was not soft like that of the white one, but mechanical, obfuscated, it seemed, by some great difficulty of communication.
Alistair stood before them stunned. Only an instant earlier he had been preparing for bed. Now he was in a circular grey room, confronted by the strangest sight he had ever seen. His rational mind kept telling him to relax, to ride out the dream, while a deeper and more troubling voice inside him said that he was somewhere between dreams and reality, and that reality was actually relative—"yes," it said, "where you are at the moment is what is real." As he looked at them, he found his gaze returning most often to the face of the white one. Although bereft of any human-like features, it was a face that radiated complete caring…it was totally disarmed…and concerned…about everything. Looking at the face of the black one was more like looking into an abyss. It was not frightening so much as overwhelming, dizzying, requiring him to remind himself who he was for fear of forgetting everything.
“You are brave,” came the voice of the white one.
“He controls his fear with more fear,” said the black one.
“Would you like to learn what you are?” asked the white one.
There was something terrifying to Alistair about this gently worded question. He felt like a child being asked if he wanted to go up to the attic in a haunted house. His composure disappeared. He had long sensed an inhospitable landscape within him, something that shunned people but had been bent into a reticent and polite figure by socializing pressures. If not for those pressures, he wondered what he might have been capable of doing in this life just to have peace, to be left alone.
“He is not ready,” said the black one, metallically. “We have entered the continuum to soon.”
“He is ready,” came the voice of the white one.
“Let me go back,” said Alistair, feeling now like he had taken a terrible misstep that he could never retrace. Suddenly he realized that the white one was standing next to him, and with its presence cam a warm balm. All the tension in his muscles was drained and his mind rose higher on a windstorm of compassion. He felt as if he knew the being standing next to him, that he had known it for all eternity across the jagged pattern of a thousand lifetimes. Now he began to understand why he was being offered a glance as his inner self. He was being given a chance to take a giant leap forward…he was being shown mercy.
“Yes,” Alistair said, “show me.”
With that the black one appeared squarely in front of him. Alistair’s eyes were directly aligned with its eyes. Startled but buoyed by the energy of the white one, Alistair sank his gaze directly into the pitch-black orbs. He felt his awareness travel deep inside the eyes, into a blackness previously unknown to him. Despite the lack of concern he had felt from the black one, he now realized that the blackness was itself warm, populated with unlimited possibility—it was the birthing hole for existence. This was what lay at the heart of all experience—renewal, endless change, nothing was condemned, there was no need to forgive, all was completely as it should be…and still he went deeper….infinity stopped the mind in all directions, allowing only the awareness to continue like a naked child hurling through the dark….
