Dissociation

The windows to my soul were shattered. Desiccating winds have shorn my mind, icy shards have lysed my heart. I am hollow and bereft. The Harvester of Eyes took more than just my sight. He made me into an empty cathedral, where creeping things gather and jackals laugh. When the penetrating cold has m...

Re: Two on Teeth

Hey, I really liked the second one because the question, What would he do with teeth?, isn't as good as the real myth, what would he do with all the coins? He's not renting that boat, right? But most of all, the statement that the Tooth Fairy always needed money goads my mind into a whole other set ...

Naked Elf Fight Club, by JRR Pratchett

this is the stabbing truth of: The Walk Home by unreliable narrator I've never had another. Even honest people get their fill eventually. There's no Quasimodo-Princess story here. Just the cold, churning cosmos turning stone-faced above my weary heart. Yet, I feel closest to the expanse. The heavenl...

Re: Eternal Gardens of Living Teeth

Well, I was going to have a try. I think I'm better off having a lie-down instead. ...with knees drawn up under chin, whimpering just audibly. Don't do that! How can anyone become a better writer without keeping on writing!? What if, to make it easier, we all promise to take into consideration your...

Titles

I want to ask, What is it in a story title that makes you click on it or not click on it? From my own drabble submissions, because I alone know what the author was thinking and why he chose such and such a title, it seems that independent of quality or theme some stories get hundreds of views quickl...

Re: Pursuit?

I give this a -3 for not knowing who Theresa Green is, +2 for being well written (regardless of being your first!), and +2 for your profile image. Your combined total is: +1! Nice job.

Eternal Gardens of Living Teeth

This is a response to Everyone know it's your Parents by MonsieurMoustache Around his neck is a gruesome wreath; unfolding his robes spill tinkling teeth. Black bog ground and a creeping newt, in necrotic gardens the teeth take root. As the Ferryman floats between his banks, one by one the dead join...

Wow! c_lucio or Horrowshow, if either of you ever want to write on the dust jackets of any books I may write, or serve as job references or describe me to a girl I like . . . This one was a just youtube inspired, gin fueled, offhanded jaunt. Thanks!

Plain Sight

The kids in funny green suits lined up to meet the president and his wife. They shook hands and received their gift bags. It was a Halloween like every other. Hundreds of kids lined up to meet the leader of the free world and carry on the nation's traditions. The aliens didn't arrive in spinning shi...

". . . $2 off a latte!, I wasn't sleeping anyway . . ." sounds like something I would write :D
I'd schlep to the StaBA in my kitchen for that too. I'll give this story a 8.5/10, for sounding like me

this one, I have to say, I'm kinda pleased with :mrgreen: Never is the night so black as when you're at sea. And never is the night so long as when you're adrift at sea. But of all the tumult and battering, the day after the storm is still. Mocking the nightmare that you're disappointed you lived th...

Stan, you read the new paper by Vladimir Arnold? It was a little disorienting, but he said it practically writed itself.

Dane's pulse raced. Adrenaline rushed. Sweat beaded down his brow. He mustered the nerve to answer her: "Curly fries." Ah, another waitress with a Justin Bieber button on her vest... It has that affect on most of us. I admire Dane's suppression of the Urge to Kill. :wink: that's interesting. what h...
