A PSA from ROU Killing Time Until Retirement

“Explaining Traffic Safety To Your Children” By Steven Dana Lidster Sometimes there are good reasons for laws to be in place. Take the speed of light, for instance. You kids are always complaining about how far it is to the next star and how long it will take to get there. It is literally impossible...

Re: Drabblecast Director’s cut

Oh, and Morris and Penny are codependent. He escapes to the past in his literal time machine. She with her metaphorical time machine of gin and dreams of youth. They both need marriage counseling or a divorce and counseling for their separate issues that prevent both from moving forward with their l...

Ask me Anything(?)

“Ask Me Anything(?)” A Drabble by Steven Dana Lidster —— A Riddle roams the streets of every city, a knife held ready in its grip. It appears at random and without notice to ask a Question. An Answer shadows the Riddle along the rooftops or from the darkened alleys, a sniper rifle at the ready. A Ri...

Spaced Time

Tamitha Time and Sperling Space were taking a beer break in the Contiuum Lounge of the Mobius Grand Hotel, Resort, and Cosmic Uncertainty Casino. The caps popped off with a refreshing Little Bang. The pair sat and watched the condensed gas Sublime away into freedom. After a clink of the two chilled ...

Re: Sooooo...is the Drabblecast dead..?

Whatever it's status I just wanted to drop by and thank Norm and the crew for all the joy and strange pleasure they put out into the world for so long. It really was a great ride, and if it comes back that would be wonderful. And if not, to everything there is a season. Turn, turn, turn biotches. Pe...

Re: Classics 14 (EP 43) - Jelly Park

Well, it's about time! To anyone relatively new to Drabblecast who hasn't listened to the whole library, this is the episode to inspire you to do so in 2015. One of the best. But reading the comments also makes me want to raise a glass to the many friends, like Tweedy, Phillipa, and Ayn Savoy who I...

Seemed right to start with a twabble. Here goes nothing:

I've cooked a pair of eyes to dine on.
My meal smells particularly good tonight.
Sadly, I cannot seem to find my utensils.

Any thoughts...?
Welcome to the DC forums.

Hope that dinner is finger-lickin good.

Re: Broken Promise (Halloween)

Miss Grimsley was an old sockpuppet Drabblecast grammarian whose spirit was conjured up originally by ROU Killing Time's overuse and abuse of gerunds. A previous moderator, who long since retired to spend some time reacquainting himself with his family, banned sock puppets from the forums, and so G...

Re: Grief is a Winding Road; Regret, an Endless Labyrinth

I'd change one line (the first "imagines") to "he hears their screams" to avoid the double imagine use. That's a 103 word drabble. I think that he really meant to convey a continuation of one thought across two sentences. In which case the use of two of the same word is most appropriate. Oh I quite...
