Every Good Deed

I'm please with this drabble. It's funny because it's sad. It's sad because it's true. _ Robins, bad news. . . . No, no need to work late again. In fact. . . . We don't use the term “layoff” anymore. . . . Sudden? Actually, you haven't worked here since Monday. . . . No, no. We've never had anyone d...

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

I decided to make a happy twabble. And one with no puns! Sometimes a tool for expression can be the most powerful thing you can receive. Especially in a child's eyes. I wish I had been nurtured when I was little, but then I started passing out kazoos to kids and then I felt better. _ In for the rain...

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

Pun must be used very cautiously, because when they're good they're really good and when they're bad they're really bad. I'm not saying that I have any discrete control over my bad puns, I'm just saying that they're really bad. _ I twabble to and I twabble fro. Where I twabble I do not know. A well ...

Dude, the water wasn't running. I was just in the shower.

Into the void

I wrote a drabble in the shower today! I might start taking showers more often. The land gushed from hidden magma pockets And unbidden came old gods and creeds and prophets Once adored, they were then by their own peoples deplored For from their altars fear and weakness poured The ground was rent in...

I don't usually like other people's twabbles, but I do love things that lie in wait. Tangerine Approved!

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

My creative genius usually comes in inopportune, spastic spurts. Unfortunately for you it has manifested itself, for the moment, in twabbles. Should I limit myself to a couple posts a week?

Preconceived notions about people are unkind. Even an admiring compliment can hurt. Mostly, though, I have a thing for elf-y girls.

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

A clause is a clause if you obey the laws to write, giving pause to some because they read. But faux pas withdraw applause. A phrase conveys ideas in many ways but not always. Raising a great phrase can daze; it stays in mind and pays with praise. A verb that's superb can perturb and disturb. A pron...

While you guys were sleeping I wrote these two twabbles. You stopped breathing for like four seconds. _ He was found hanging from a rope in the church steeple.

I wrote this just now because I—wanted to write a twabble—and I like em dashes, and relativity. And relationships are so much about perception. It's relative. — She says I move slowly—she's slower! She says I'm heavier—she's heavier! I'm drifting away? She's the only one moving! and I wrote this one...

Ok, I got another one:

He said, “Welcome to Fantasy Island,” but he didn’t tell us that when the fantasy ended we would be lost and adrift at sea.

I don't think it's as good as my first one, but maybe it will better complement a story? You're welcome.

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

I wrote a twabble! It's my first one ever. I guess I'll call it, Pride in the Pride

I had fame, pleasures, prowess, but not happiness. So, I asked the wisest lion how to be happy. He said, “Eat prey, love.”

You're welcome!
