Re: Vote Here! Best Drabble

Before that I had high hopes they would start, however, after I suspect that too much of it would go over their heads. Still, at least mine have some hope, since they found it funny after explanation, rather than giving me the stare of doom :)

Re: Vote Here! Best Drabble

I played "Work that must be done" to co-workers when I first heard it. NOBODY got it. They had really confused looks on their faces, while I laughed and laughed at the awesome story. I had to explain it to them, and their expressions changed. Not for the better. Geez. I guess there are some people ...

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

Well, even though I completed my weeks challenge (albeit with one blip) I think I'm going to try and keep up one twabble a day for as long as I can, since I actually really enjoyed it :) "Try to kill me, would she? I'll show her!" he cackled as he grabbed the knife. Giggling, he thrust it deep into ...

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

Alas, I fell at the last hurdle. I visited the pub, and so all I can produce is this poor excuse, masquerading as a twabble.

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

A slightly less direction-less offering today, for the penultimate day of my personal goal:

I consider myself a polite neighbour, for a mad scientist. For example, I don't storm your abode at unreasonable hours.

The shadows danced on the cream paper, strange tentacled images growing and warping. Weirdest light puppet show ever.

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

Unsurprisingly today's is also related to the current holiday:

I grabbed the bloody, quivering heart, and tore it from his still warm chest. There, that should satisfy any valentine.

And Sunday's sample

When I was young, I played with dolls. Now I don't have any dolls, so I play with people. Soon I'll run out of people as well.

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

Slightly late with today's top of the triumvirate, but only because I've just got home to post it.

They told me not to play with fire. Now the entire world is burning, and it's my fault. Does it still look like I'm playing?

Lady Luck

The gangster leaned over me theatrically, gun in hand, and asked sarcastically, “Well, punk, do ya feel lucky?” I fingered the cold iron of the horseshoe in my pocket, and glanced down at the rabbits foot hanging from my neck. Looking him in the eye, I replied, simply, “Yes”. Simultaneously, I whipp...

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

Whelp, here's today's effort: I lay on the bed, wondering. Perhaps she hadn't meant me to take it so literally when she said "over my dead body". Ah well. Not sure if it was better than one of yesterday's back-ups, but I felt if I started cheating I might lose the motivation to compose decent ones i...

Deadlines

I pace anxiously around the room, glancing at my watch. Time was running out. They'd promised to come in less than fifteen minutes. There were only two minutes left. Suddenly I hear the doorbell ring. I edge cautiously closer, my stomach a churning mass of nerves. I lean forward to look through the ...

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

Well, here's my favourite for today, in the nick of time. 2 days down, 5 to go. On the plus side, I composed inside my 10 minute limit this time, and found it easier to pull ideas from just what was in my room. "Behold, my anti-matter grenade!" Jenkins cleared his throat, "Ah, Sir? I, ah, believe th...

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

Well, I decided to adopt the write 3, revise later, and pick the best amendment to my challenge, although unfortunately I've already broken the 10 minutes only rule, so I'm just abandoning that one... So here's what I felt was my best today: It was my turn to host the Cult of Dagon's convocation thi...

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

David sighed as the light flickered in the bedroom again. It was just so damn hard to get rid of those human infestations! I think I might set myself a challenge to compose 1 twabble a day for a week. Just so I can get better at plucking ideas from my head, rather than waiting for them to appear at...

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

I've had this one floating around in my head for a while, but finally got round to actually organising it :)

The body lay on the table, ready for autopsy.

"I still don't see why you can't just ask me how I died," the zombie grumbled.
