Dan figured out the answers to life. He wasn’t surprised that tacos, beer and toilets were involved.

Good story, it was fun. b I dont know if it was a favorite, but it wasn't a fast forward story. Those dont happen on Drabble yet.

It isn't often you get traditional or not so traditional Fables anymore. Thanks for digging this one out. I kept waiting for some high brow animal farm-esque theme about capitalism and corporate greed. When it ended so lighthearted more like a kids joke than lit, it was a good twist. As always great...

i love stories that I cetegorize as relevant scifi. Good scifi has a believable edge and echos our current societal norms. This has both. It is easy to be critical of stories like this but it doesn't deserve this. If you read cyberpunk genre the original stuff is pretty non-relevant because we can s...

he dabble wat. my commute smile which is a status few podcast meterial gets. Squidges was a good story, great piece of flash fiction with some serious merit under the hood per say. The whole perspective theme running strongly underplot was well written and the additions of extra voices really made p...

Yes, it was undrabbly. Unless you don't miss the fact that the narrator is an oldtimer flea on Blue's ear. In drabbleland, POV is everything. Agreed if he was a flea that would be interesting, but it wasn't written in an odd POV. After all fleas dont have guns, shacks etc. Like I said wasn't bad. A...

Ancient apple tree rocked. The more human than human robots tending the orchards and mourne the passing of one of their forefathers. Very kewl, I am still podering if the apple tree is a biblical reference but I am leaning toward coidcidental. Blue was good, but pretty meh for me. A good dog story, ...

this is fiction, not literature, we are seeking entertainment no deeper truth here.) Um I will agree to disagree. All fiction is literature.

1st persn zombie stories are kewl. This one was no exception. A few loose ends like why he could hold on to his humanity for much longer than his wife and why he could use some of the zombie speed and strength before he was taken by the virus. I use the term virus loosly, this could be radioactivity...
