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

I was in slow traffic this morning and noticed the name on a pedestrian overpass on the motorway into the city. It was the Exmouth Footbridge, which reminded me of The Shadow Over Innsmouth. Then I wondered why that one didn't have the usual cage on it to stop idiots dropping things onto cars, which...

Mary Had a Little Lamb

Firstly, congrats on Drabblecast aaaaaalmost back to life! I haven't been here for a long time [insert Obi-wan meme]. Secondly, apropos of nothing in particular, I came in this morning after feeding one of our lambs whose mum sadly didn't make it, and my wife asked me what the 'other' Mary Had a Lit...

Or, in Twabble form:

'Oh please let it be sabres. A more elegant weapon for a more civilized time,' he said, and picked his arm up off the floor.

Actually, Torchwood was originally the production team's internal codename for the revived Doctor Who series, precisely BECAUSE it was an anagram. The Torchwood institute idea came later.

I have been away for a while, but last night prompted me to come up with this one --

Re: Drabblecast 185- Horror World 2025: Part II

...I really liked the reading for Selena, so I adjusted for it in my head and had her character as an American who had been in Britain for a couple of years, probably attending the same finishing school as Lady Di or something. Or Madonna. Hmmm... Madonna. In a roundabout way that make me think we ...

PS I was kinda wondering about the 'heavy British accent', because it wasn't really that heavy or even that British.

Re: Drabblecast 185- Horror World 2025: Part II

Absolutely brilliant! I didn't get that Selena was cat woman... wasn't Selena described as African-American, or was that Ben? I also think the monorail should have talked. After all, talking monorails sure put North Haverbrook on the map. Superb work guys - Kevin, Dave, Norm, and forum activists ali...

However, I do think that the drabblecast forums will remain untouched when the rapture comes... in their heart not one person here is truly normal. But doesn't that by definition make us all normal?

Re: Drabblecast 152- Trifecta XI

I contend that this ending was rushed. The story leading up to the ending had total consistency within his world. Much time was spent defining multiple data points establishing how the world worked. The ending violated my expectations (the nature of a good twist) without being consistent with the c...

I'm reminded of the guy who kept getting reincarnated and then killed by Arthur Dent. One time he cooked him up, then tossed him aside because he wasn't really that hungry. Don't Panic. You mean Agrajag? Actually, I was more reminded of the cow in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. "I'll ju...

I loved cod philosophy. Ah, Australia, me ol' stomping ground. Bert Newton on Good Morning Australia would make me want to do more than run along the beach though.

Since no-one has put up this week's story discussion HINT HINT! :), I offer up this twabble in honour of the donor of the week, and his strange hobby:
