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

Re: Twabble censorship

Mod note: split from main twabble thread, as slightly off topic there, July 12, 2014 My mum told me having one testicle does not make someone a freak but I still say it's creepy and she should have it removed. I appear to have offended people with this post which was not my intention. I'm coming to...

Re: Searching for a Lovecraft story

Thanks for the hints guys. Actually Rats in the Walls was my first port of call and Haunter in the Dark was my second (any chence to re listen to an old DC favourite), but it wasn't either of those two.

His finger slipped from the trigger and the room around him dissolved until he stood on a field of white lattices beside a man in a lab coat. “Let me guess, this was a test to test if I could do it?” “No, it was to see how you handle finding out it was a simulation.” ~the room dissolved~ “Actually, ...
