Love

I could not tell you about his smile. I no longer know what color his hair was, and I cannot remember how it felt to run my hands through it. The warmth of his embrace is lost to me. In my youth I had wanted to remember these things, and had spent many hours indulging myself of them. I swam in ocean...

Machine of Death

“Next! Number 49!” I stepped forward, rubbing my finger where the Machine had drawn blood, so it could determine how I would die. The kiosk attendant handed me a folded paper. I stared at it. It held a short message that would change how I lived my life. I would spend my days avoiding death, to no a...

Re: Post your Twitfic Twabbles Here! (General Content)

Me? Of course I remember. I was eating lunch - fresh tuna - when I got the news that the President had been unassassinated.

Re: Super Squid Sex Organ Discovered

It's the drabblecast and we're talking about squid penises. Conventional definitions of 'appropriate' really don't enter into the equation ;)

I really like that explanation, actually - I'm still laughing at "flopping around amongst the rather unremarkable, small, flaccid squid penises " :D

Re: Early Riser

He woke me up. I awoke gradually from cryosleep – a dream about my lover, no less. We were in a field, enjoying a picnic and each other’s company. He turned to me, his lips mere moments away… He woke me up with a kiss. Twenty lightyears out, eight hundred some years to go. We will starve together. O...

Montezuma's Revenge at 1000 feet

If you’ll look out of the plane, you’ll see that we’re passing over Mexico , the pilot droned through the intercom. Meanwhile, in the plane’s stuffy bathroom, I doubled over in pain. Don’t go to South America , mother had said. The water isn’t safe. Also, your body houses an Aztec god and if you ge...

Re: Drabblecast 165- Doubleheader VI - Ellen Klages

Ringing up Baby is amusing?!? Ringing up Baby was one of the most horrifying stories I've ever heard. The idea of designer children has horrified me ever since Escape Pod ran a story about a couple who broke up because their genes weren't compatible enough to produce a competitive child. The fact th...

Heaven

Heaven isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Saint Peter was nice, but he was too busy to say more than a few words. My room is small, but certainly pleasant. “Though shall not covet”, after all. Turns out they let in pre-Christians as well. I quickly discovered that Socrates and karaoke mix with hilario...

ROU,/Pheno/Laj might team up on a score or so of drabbles telling the episodic story of the growth of these simulations, and how they replace actual human beings, as in The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, because simulations, not needing food, clothing, medical care, drivers licenses and insurance,...

Short, quick and clean - not my favorite story, but certainly well told and enjoyable. Once it was stated that his mother was going to punish him, the ending became rather predictable - but hey, I don't get to call them correctly very often, so I'm not going to complain. Great Shark Week jokes too. ...

I must say that, even before looking things up to have any idea what was going on, I liked the imagery. From "penultimate evolutionary form" to "gossamer strand", it seemed like while there was certainly something going on, it really didn't matter. One of those cases where the journey is more import...

Found it - the drabble makes that much more sense now, and is quite possibly that much more awesome as well.

Ah. Your comment makes sense now :D. Sounds like a decent (if low-budget) film... I'll have to watch it sometime.
