Re: Don't Sleep in the Potato Patch

Well I learned that potatoes are a kind of fly trap, but the add pissed me off, and the story seemed a little obvious. I mean, it seemed to be saying "Scientist's discover that plants use any broken down nutrients that are available in the soil, even the dead bug bodies". There are some good story i...

Re: Fairy Power

Thanks Jebi! :) And... just to clarify, they don't need money. They're fairies. You don't give them a drink at the local pub, they curse you for all eternity, turn your offspring into frogs and (now) shut down your power. Drinks are on the house. Well sure, classically that has been the case, but t...

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

The cyborg-sailor rowed fervently towards the beautiful siren. This time the outcome of her ploy was anybody’s guess.

OR:

"Oh hell ya baby, here I come!" yelled the doomed sailor as he rowed at full tilt towards the beautiful, beckoning siren.

Re: Fairy Power

I like the feel of the Irish bar, with magic in the air... although it seems to me that if at least some of the fairies have a taste for the spirits, then they would need money to buy the drinks, so they should maybe come out in the open with their power scheme, and charge a little for it. Since it ...

Re: But Is It Art?

Enjoyable read. It got me thinking, and that's always good.

The concept of the first section seemed slightly reminiscent of The Trueman Show, and the second section had a nice dark tone that read well, although the last sentence seemed a little awkward to me.

Re: How'd you find Drabblecast?

I, like many others here it seems, heard about you from Escape Pod.

And it seems, judging by the poll results, that advertisements are not very effective, zero votes for them anyways...

Oh so silly, but I appreciate the the name Barfy. A play on barfly I would guess. "Barfy" is a 5-letter name that hopefully has you thinking dog. It's also the name of a dog in a couple of comic strips. (Damn kids these days, don't take the newspaper!) "Bark", "arf", barf up the partially chewed mo...
