On the other, it wasn't a story: No plot, no characters, no particular setting. It was just a description of a concept for a story, notes. Yah, I think that would disengage me normally, but concept-based stuff seems to work alright in flash fiction, at least IMO, and that's why you usually see more...

If the reason he had to kill himself was because he never wanted to see his sister die or suffer, having seen his sister die negated the initial motivation. Had he really thought she was going through with it he probably would have drank with her, but he was so concerned with checking to see if she ...

I'm surprised feedback is so light on this story- I thought it was great. Maybe Tweedy (as he often does) captured and synthesized most peoples thoughts? Maybe the Drabblenews about ingesting pig brain tissue left a bad taste in everyone's mouth? (hehe)

What fiction story? I'm drawing a blank.

Yes, well I've been looking for a good monster-goat story to balance things out, but no luck so far.

This is a good argument for keeping cows on your roof. One of the many... I have to admit though, I kind of bought more into the water origin theory. With the boat capsizing in the news at the beginning, I could just imagine it crawling out of the bay. The other thing that kind of got me - did the ...

Well that's more of a subject for debate in the nomination thread, but I think Jelly Park stands on it's own as a great story sanz musical score.
We could do a Drabble contest in the future- need more submitted though!

Lastly, I keep hearing everyone going on about J.J. Abrams, and while it probably wouldn't have got made without his backing, how about some credit for the two guys who actually wrote and directed it? Seriously. Also yah, I picked up the Tokyo thing.

Well I guess I had a simpler take on it (keep in mind I don't yes or no these stories so I feel ok to give my real opinion on them!) I wasn't looking for a twist personally, it didn't seem setup that way. It was just one of those "talks" you have when you know it isn't working out with someone, exce...
