Grief is a Winding Road; Regret, an Endless Labyrinth

Of all the ghosts that endlessly chase him, it is theirs alone he cannot turn to face. It’s been almost 13 years now since the tragedy that took his wife and 8-year old daughter, and while Pacman hadn’t been home the night the gas stove caught fire, he imagines it all as if he had been. He imagines ...

Re: Proposal for future writing contests

Ya. The systems and structure will definitely be different for the next contest. All in all CwBF was a real success and I think fairness and talent did triumph in the end, but alas, the days are long past when we could post a simple forum vote about who would win in a fight: man-sized crab with a ch...

A Bear That Died From Scratches

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

Just a shout out to Unread Narrator, whose winning 100 character story about Stockholm Syndrome went semi-viral this week with over 650 retweets and 590 favorited in just the first couple hours. New All-time Record in DC twitfix history.

Re: Drabblecast 175 - The Outsider

I'm actually loving the post-episode discussion in the DClassics so far. Good funny group of intelligent folks, always interesting to hear their thoughts and personalities. So yah, I think there are some strong indicators that the narrator is undead in this story, but I'm not so sure that Lovecraft ...

Re: Bsides 47 – Statement in the Case

This story was ok, but kind of hard for me to follow. Who exactly had the cages? What actually happened? Too much inferred, too little stated. Spoilers: Hm, it came across pretty clear to me. The main tension in the story rises when the shopkeep's new prissy wife begins bringing back all sorts of t...

Weird, no clue how that happened. Chalking it up to my laptop being an eldritch horror from circa 2005. Full episode should be up now in both feeds.

Re: Drabblecast 321 – The Goat Cutter

I will miss him immensely as well. I tried to get him for an interview on Bsides awhile back but his increasing health problems made it impossible. Goat Cutter was Jay's last professional sale and it is surely a less exciting world now for us all without his powerful talent and unique voice and pers...

Help Wanted: Editor, Drabblecast Classic

So, we've been toying for awhile with the idea of starting a new podcast feed called "Drabblecast Classic" which features reruns of old shows from throughout the past 7 years. There's a big 'ol backlog of archived episodes at this point and while Tom's set up handy 25 episode downloadable zip packs,...

High Elf on Acid Attacks Woman's BMW

For you Portlanders out there (lookin' at you ROU) In an interview with Vocativ, Bass explained that he mistook the car for a shapeshifting demon. "I wasn't in my right mind. I was still rocking my new pair of elf ears." http://gawker.com/high-elf-high-on-acid-attacks-womans-bmw-with-a-sword-1579493...

Re: Bsides 45 – Buried Talents

Not sure I got this one. What happened at the end? It's a little vague and it took a minute to hit me too the first time I read it, but the key sentence at the end is "He took the steak knives." Remember, the tall man in black rejected all the prizes up to that point, so it stands out a little. The...

Batman crouches on the rooftop, pondering current U.S. race-relations. Unable to recall ever battling or incarcerating a single non-Caucasian villain, he's convinced the problem is somehow endemic within society; a system constantly failing our white-upper-middle-class-young-people-raised-by-brillia...

A Purpose Yet Unknown

The halfling arrived with troubling news. The Mist-Walkers had taken Dunwinter Keep and were amassing for some nefarious purpose yet unknown. He'd been sent to unite the 7 elven-tribes of K'blar, for only then would each take up arms. One final tribe remained... He found their tree blackened by fire...
