Re: Drabblecast 189- Doubleheader VIII: Sarah Monette

I really liked these stories. Especially the second one. I'd say more about it but it would come off as too personal and lame and also probably start an argument anyway. So I'll just say that I really liked it. Especially the part about monsters being able to love too. That made me happy. :) Also, I...

Re: Drabblecast 187- Doubleheader VII: A Fool’s Death, Pidgi

Pidgen reminded me of every crappy customer service job I ever had. The only difference between the alien in the story who didn't know what language he was speaking, didn't know what he wanted or what kind of store he was in and got mad when the clerk tried to help him and the majority of the popula...

I know - I was making a joke :)

Although, I admit I did sort of assume that the rivers of Australia ran red with the blood of tourists. You're telling me that they don't??

No, I'm not sure they really qualify.

Re: Drabblecast 181- Funeral Song for a Ventriloquist

My main point comes from the assumption that this story is an argument on the futility of human existence, and my problem with that is that it treats the futility argument as an end point rather than one node in a huge philosophical morass. It packages an idea (nothing lasts) with a behavior (despa...

He may not need to breath. but he'd certainly need a periscope. The rivers are bloody muddy. Actually, that might make it creepier. Have at it. There's plenty of story to go around.

Re: Drabblecast 186- Garkain by Samantha Henderson

Yes, that's very close to what popped into my mind. For me it's a guy on the bottom of a river walking as if in a trance, with no need of oxygen. And moving very slowly because of the buoyancy and the resistance of the water. Which brings up several questions... most notably, why doesn't he need to ...

Re: MB4 Finals - Minhotops vs. Bigger Boris vs. The Bandersn

I have cast my vote for the 'snatch. Because... well for one thing I get to say that I'm voting for 'snatch. But more importantly, I think the phasing thing gives the bandersnatch a wicked edge that would be tough to counter. Also, Mongoose was pretty badass and that was just the undeveloped juvenil...

Re: Drabblecast 186- Garkain by Samantha Henderson

Yeah, it was hard to become too invested in the story because of all the POV changes. I think that's part of why it was somewhat difficult to follow. And I couldn't get too creeped out about bad things happening to people I hardly knew and didn't really care about. I thought it was very well read th...
