Re: The Pendulum Swings On and On

I have to ask... What's the backstory in which someone from Largo knows what a vardoger is? Are you a Viking? No, I'm not a Viking in the flesh, perhaps in spirit. :) I do like "The Ride of the Valkyries", though. The Celtic/UK Mongrel is my breed. The backstory is that I became fascinated with dop...

Welcome to the Drabble forum.
Yes, welcome aboard. I never knew that leaves were the minions of the devil. :)

Re: Drabblecast 136- The Great Old Pumpkin by John Aegard

Congratulations for putting on a "Great Pumpkin Halloween" episode. Hellish pumpkins and zombies fixing to tear-ass through the whole sordid affair. I love it. And the intro bit with Kendall as the monster accidentally set loose and peeing on the carpet was just hysterical. "The Great Old Pumpkin" b...

Re: The Pendulum Swings On and On

Fascinating, m_a_. You've taught me two new words. It's a bit of Ground Hog's Day Drabble. Thanks, stawman. :) This one was fun for me. I got to combine two elements of sci-fi I love: time travel and mythology. I'm glad you caught the Groundhog Day parallel. Imagine having to do something over and ...

The Pendulum Swings On and On

I  stand on gray museum marble, watching the pendulum’s parachronistic swing. A strange desire fills me. I dismiss it as madness. Sensing movement, I turn. A familiar gaze, like looking at an old mirror, cracked and gray, meets mine. "I’ll see you in twenty years," he says. He jumps, gracefully arci...

Re: A Girl With Brains

It loses points, with me, due to the squick factor and maybe a smidgen of predictability. But, it's still good. Yea, the title does kind of give it away. This was my "get a zombie drabble in before Halloween" deadline. And my friends all say I'm full of squick anyway. At least that's what I think t...

A Girl With Brains

"Men!" Barbara shouted indignantly, to no one in particular. "They're so thickheaded. They only love my body and not my brains!" Barbara's latest failed relationship had left her feeling somewhat jaded. She pondered the absolute pointlessness of her love life. She'd had many lovers recently and none...

The Best Homework Excuse Ever

I was sitting under the tree in our backyard with a notepad and pen, writing my book report which was due in the morning. The sky was beginning to darken. 
 Suddenly, a very bright light stabbed through the branches overhead, shimmering oddly. 
 A spaceship landed in front of me. I jumped up, startl...

Aria alone could see the sign above the door. Holding her breath, she entered through the portal to begin her day at work.

Re: Announcing the Weekly Tw(itter)-(Dr)abble Contest!

How Do You Kill A Harpy? The books at the library were no help at all. They said harpies could be banished, but never killed. I MUST be free of them! This would actually be a good blurb for a short story I’m researching. Gotta find a way to kill those foul, defecating, hawk-clawed bitches. Since the...
