Re: (New Kid in Town Theme) The Senses, by Maya S.

I'm a little lost. Who's Billy? Is he the butler in the closet? The chef? Who's he picking a fight with? Why are the chefs begging for food? I like the idea of trying to include the 5 senses (fun fact: scientifically speaking, we have more like 10-15 senses!), but the story's gotten a little lost i...

(Good Samaritan Theme) Ending the Pain, by Brian B.

Marge was certain that the unidentifiable, humanoid thing on the ground was hurt. She took the animal to her house to see what it liked to eat, but she discovered that it had no mouth (or face, for that matter). She hid the thing from Gerald, her boyfriend, by putting it in a drawer. She then went t...

(Test of Faith Theme) Leap of Faith in Reality, by Joel F.

“Come on, Matt. Time’s running out,” I pleaded with my pedestrian friend. “This isn't safe Alex. We should turn back,” he begged me. The winds were fierce; we were on the mountain’s peak. Two days ago, this wasn't me; this would never have even crossed my mind. “I’m ready”, I declared, taking a few ...

(New Kid in Town Theme) The Senses, by Maya S.

“What’s wrong with ya? Huh? Ain’t you gonna do something about it. Don’t you care? Don’t just stand there. Fight like a man” mouthed Billy. I ran to the gardens and lay down in the lush, green grass. I inhaled the sweet scents of lavenders and daises and stared up at the clear, baby blue sky. I popp...

(New Kid in Town Theme) Village Idiots Bled Dry, by Brian B.

“It can’t possibly be true,” said Ivan. “It is,” said Igor, who was more inclined to follow tradition than Ivan. “That new guy is one of those blood-sucking creatures.” “Even if it is true, why is it so bad?” asked Ivan. “Sure, he’s pale and asks for several of our cows, but where’s the harm?” “I ha...

(Wayfarer Theme) A Clever Adventure, by Brian B.

I’ve already made it to the beast’s lair! This beast is called Mownglodor, and it guards the Ventigorius Crystal, a magical item that, when touched, gives one unimaginable power. I proceed to viciously slay the Mownglodor with a length of rope, a pair of tweezers, and seven flagons of bacon grease. ...

(Apocalypse Theme) Silent Death Instant Combustion by Zoe P

“Do not press,” is what I say. “Do not release the nuclear hounds on the entire world.” Such a devastating effect from a minimal cause; pressing a button. We press them all the time; keyboards, microwaves, elevators. Pressing buttons is easy, yet pressing a button to end the world seems unfair. No t...

(Soft Apocalypse Theme) 20 by Joel F.

Oh no, it can’t be! The end of the world as we know it. I bolted before my impending doom. Twenty minutes to spare; fate in my young hands. Blazing past streets of chaotic traffic, mothers scattered with kids. Only time would tell what happens next. Glaring at my watch, ten minutes left; my destinat...

(Soft Apocalypse Theme) The Yellowing Pages by Maya S.

Time slowed down and everything became silent. I watched Jennifer mouth curses and make big hand motions. The rest of her failed class watched her with delight because she had become one of them. I remembered watching each of them grow; a toddler refusing to learn how to read and its parents making ...

(Soft Apocalypse Theme) Where Were You? by Brian B.

Where were you when the world stopped turning? Oh, I’m not talking about that lame song about something that happened eons ago. I’m talking about the Earth literally ceasing to turn, leading half of us to freeze and the other to burn. Where were you when the oceans stopped producing waves? Or when t...

(Afraid of the Dark theme) Night Visions, by Zoe P.

What do I see? I close my eyes, A myriad of colors dance and flicker and tug And pull at my mind, daring it to make sense, Or to make some form out of them. Light makes an imprint on my eyelids. Is that my own breathing, or someone else's? What do I see? I open my eyes. The thermal opposite of the c...

(Afraid of the Dark theme) The Unknown, by Justin W.

The darkness is a very unsettling place. No one truly can say they are not afraid of the dark. The unknown will always grip even the bravest adventurers. The unknown can be exciting but getting rid of the unknown is impossible. Personally, I would rather know the ending than deal with the pressure. ...

(Afraid of the Dark theme) The Mist, Day Three by Brian B.

We created the mist, pitch black and all-consuming. It’s honestly a miracle that I found the button to turn on this thought recorder. It’s funny though; these machines require an extremely high amount of fuel and dirty electricity to run, and the power needed to run the thing into which I think this...

Re: (Alien Theme) A Mad World, by Joel F.

Joel, It is extremely important in drabblecraft to proofread. Only 100 words, but they all come from you. And the slightest typo in the last sentence brings the whole structure crashing down on your head. In any world, "Right before him lay a lifeless, green figuring" is gibberish, (even if he is a...

It was a dark night, in the middle of a vacant field on the outskirts of town; the mad man’s hour. Suddenly a thin, grey looking gentleman came racing toward a smoky crater looking structure. “And there it is, finally! After all my years of research, no longer will I be seen as the town joke.

What sort of place is this? I've been here an hour and already the uneasiness in my stomach is killing me. The water is so strange, clear and effectively reflective. My pale blue face looked nothing like the colorful faces around me. I was in a small town. I think it was called Manhattan. The buildi...

Cassandra loved the sea, but since she was a little girl with two brothers, she never got a chance to sail. One night, Cassandra snuck out and took her father's fishing trawler, but never came back. Her father and two brothers scoured the sea, but she was never found. Exactly one year later, the fis...

Sailors + TT: God is Old and the Sea Burns, by Brian B

The old man told me not to pass through the intersection between the Meridian and the equator while holding the gem. But, dammit, it fell to me and me alone! In my boat, outside my house! So naturally, I didn’t listen. I was made that way, but I wish I wasn’t, for what I see now is nowhere near what...
