The Last Tree

The Last Tree stood in the center of the massive temple complex. Under a searingly bright dome of artificial blue sky, It seemed to glow from darkened entryway. Julissa approached silently, as reverent as a nun, and knelt among the twisting roots of the towering oak. Its leaves, gold as autumn, made...

This might have been done before, but here goes: My hands hover over the time machine's controls. Everything is ready. I have only to engage the starter, and I will be hurdled into what is, for me, the past. I have to go back, need to. But what right do I have to jeopardize the time stream just to f...

The Face Book

She met him in a club. He was tall, pale and magnetic. They got to talking. He didn't say much, but he was a good listener, she thought. "I want to put you in my face book," he said quietly. She nodded and grinned tipsily. "I just love facebook!" She shouted to compete with the thumping bass of the ...

One of those damn Mall Kiosks

I hurried past the kiosk in the mall, trying not to make eye contact. The attendants wore crisp suits and plastic smiles. They frightened me a bit. I had heard the rumors, and I'm not very religious in any case. The booth had a backdrop featuring a photo of a placid sunset over an ocean glacier. It ...

Buried Alive

The hero opened his eyes to the sound of dirt hitting the lid of the coffin. He was in total darkness, buried alive. He'd have to act quickly. Above ground, a group of men watched the unmarked grave. "It's been four minutes. Maybe this time?" said a man with a shovel. "Not today, you fiend!" the her...

Re: Drabblecast 193 - Scales

Holy crap did I like this drabble. "I blame Carmen Sandiego." :lol:
The main fiction was also great. It was atmospheric and really well read.
Here's to another great year of weird!

Open Mic Night

It was his first open mic night. The young MC was very nervous. He paced the room, knowing he was going to be on very soon. Time seemed like a weight on his shoulders, crushing him. Finally, it was time. He took a deep breath. This was his moment. He would live it. And he would make the audience liv...

Re: Drabblecast 167- Snowman's Chance in Hell by Robert Jeschone

I quite liked this episode. Dead Duck Day. I'm wondering how they celebrate exactly. Parade? Cos-play? Reenactments? The possibilities are endless. I loved the story, though it didn't go as far as it could have. The idea of flesh storms is possibly the grossest thing since rib worms. But it's probab...

The Sixth Day

He stood in the garden and looked around. Things were looking pretty good, He thought. A bit rushed, perhaps, but no one would notice. He heard a noise, and saw one of the cats, a great one with orange and black stripes, walking about proudly. Something hung loosely from its mouth. "What have you go...

The phone rang. "Hello?" "Good mornin'," chirped a voice. "Is this the author of the nee- nah, necro..." she struggled. "This is he." "My name is Mercy Lou Hart, calling from American Harvest Publishing." "What can I do for you?" "We're an independent P.O.D. self publishing company," she began. "You...
