Dream of the Dragon

I dream of the dragon. It rises when I sleep, trumpeting the beginning of the end. Work seems pointless when the future is so dark but what else can I do.

Winter Dogs

A large pile of weapons, furs, and clothes sat next to the naked, relaxing mercenaries. Boots, coats, and thick socks were among the discarded items. In front of them rolled blue waves, beneath them was warm white sand. "Sven, pass me more ice," Karl said. Sven reached through the dimensional portal...

Re: Drabblecast 310 – The Ugly Chickens

Did anyone feel an almost lovecraftian flavor to this story? Not in the sense of horror beyond the imagining but in the way the story followed the lead down a rabbit hole of academia. Aaaand my pompous sounding post is now over.

“Listen, signup 20 other mortals below you and then you’re a Level 1 Angel,” Rich, the rep for God 4 U, said. “I don’t know... I’m already Christian. Seems like if I just stay pretty good until I die, I’ll go to heaven anyway, ya know?” I replied. Rich snorted in disgust. “Are you really going to be...
