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

The crowd at the gallows looked up, then down. Up. Down.

“That bungee noose is makin’ my neck sore,” one man finally said.

Re: Carlito's Web

I love the concept, but I'm not a fan of the last line. It feels too... simplistic. Maybe if it was, "Farmer Brown laid off the goddamn pig"? Something that feels a bit more sardonic, more wiseguyish, y'know? I can see that. I think I even did have it closer to that in an earlier draft before the w...

The Lone Star War: 2212 AD (mech theme)

I grinned as the shot from my particle cannon crossed the Rio Grande, the shockwave slicing through the water before smashing into the immense ten-gallon hat on the head of the thirty-foot tall mechanoid there. The enemy pilot must have panicked, because his bot’s arms flew into a frenzy, trying to ...

Carlito's Web

His friend, the pig, didn’t want to die. And so that night, Carlito the spider put down his cigar, rolled up his sleeves and went to work. The next morning, Farmer Bob was the first one to discover the web that read: “Lay off the goddamn pig,” stretched in thick sticky strands of spider silk across ...

Re: Steak Most Foul

I think this one is underdone. That is, it's too subtle. The only thing I can figure here is that maybe the husband despises and is going to cook his wife? There really isn't enough to support that though, since all we get to see of their relationship is her being very slightly peeved at him not hav...

Bill Ain't Been Round Much

“Ain’t been ‘round much lately, have ye Bill?” asked the barkeep. “Grlfrgrlgrg,” muttered Bill as he metamorphosed from shape to angular shape, all with stark and jutting lines that cut in every direction. The blue ten-gallon hat atop his head was the only certain thing through each incomprehensible...

Toastycakes

“Toastycakes are people!” I cried as I ran through the streets. “Toastycakes are people!” A barrel-bellied man in a bowler hat looked at the half-eaten toastycake clutched in his greasy palm, turned his head and vomited. The feathery old woman on the bench beside him fainted. “Toastycakes are people...

The Grim Reaper Came for Sex (slightly dirty)

He had the money, though some was change which fell through the gaps ‘tween his fingers, and the coins were weird like they was foreign. So I sent him to the back with Luna (not her real name), but only about ten minutes later he left, all hunchbacked and sad. Luna peeked out the backroom door five ...

I lost count listening to the number of times i listened to Boojum. Recently my long running Sci-fi game ran into the Mi-Go and the ship hit light drive moments before everything ended. Best Sci fi game moment personally. i am surprised it is in the lower number of votes. Yes, it's surprising how l...

Re: Drabblecast 225 - Trifecta XIX

I liked "Best Boy, Brightest Boy" the best out of all of these (how fitting!) although I did feel like the end was a little, I dunno, eye-rolly. It was an awesome extension of an old story and felt like it stood well enough on its own withing having to be an origin story for anything.

“Y’know, maybe it’s just the beer talking—” I started to say.

“Nope, definitely synesthesia,” my doctor interrupted.


Edit: Have another!

I was afraid that everyone at Uncle Joe’s party had would complain about the fart, but thankfully it had killed them all.

Holy crap I really need to start listening to my various podcasts again. A new job (that I'm no longer at :? ) and a new house Godzilla'd* my usual routines and has left me months behind on both The Drabblecast and Dunesteef. I thought Lab Rats might have fallen behind a desk. Glad to see it up here...

“You really should put down that knife,” I plead. But you don’t put it down. Instead you stalk towards me with your eyes full of rage and murderous intent. “Stop narrating my every move you goddamn hack!” you scream, and then you lunge and throw me to the gr-ow!-nd screaming “stop, just stop!” Beggi...

Correcting an Error

“Daddy! Daddy! That octopus has eight testicles!” young Jimmy Fulcrum stated excitedly one day at the aquarium. His father and mother laughed until they cried. “No, Jimmy. It’s tentacles,” father said. But Jimmy was humiliated. They didn’t let him live it down in elementary school, or middle school....
