Re: Drabblecast 055 - Circes

Hahaha - I agree with Kevin about the cliffnotes - helps the story out to read through this forum.

Good story though - I definitely enjoyed it.

Re: Drabblecast 056 - 33 Seconds

Love the Bbardle (am I spelling this right?) - Found the story to trope-y/predictable. Part of this might come from reading too damn much - of course you run into the same stories/ideas again and again. But I want/need something NEW in the story to make it worth my time. On to the next.

Re: Drabblecast 057 - The Tiger Fortune

I have to agree with those who felt this story was far too cookie cutter. The modern trend seems to be to do fractured fairy tales - and those can be fun - but the main idea is we do something different with the fairy tale. This one seemed far too black and white - where's the thing that makes me fe...

I liked this - fun, light, but forces you to think about all the tiny parasitic microbes around us. Good stuff.

Re: Drabblecast 059 - The Interview

This story was great and makes me respect Kevin Anderson a lot (though I already did from Pumpkinseeds). It really creeped me out when the aunt and uncle turned out to be dead and then with the receptionist...

Yes, they're zombies, but not like any type of zombies I've ever encountered. Loved it.

The story was ok, aided a lot by the presentation. On to the next.

Bbardle was awesome. Can't wait for more.

Re: Drabblecast 061 - Trifecta III

The mustache story was hilarious. The first two were just confusing, especially warmth of the sun. I suppose I could listen again but I know that amazing stuff is coming, so I will move on.

Re: Drabblecast 062 - Sizzle

Like previous commentators, I found this far too predictable. Also, there was no explanation for why the aliens would want him to kill his wife, so it didn't really make sense. On to the next!

Re: Drabblecast 045 - The Fine Point

Yes - overall I'm pretty thrilled with how solid some of these early eps are - very cool that you built it up so quickly. Sorry to spam the story boards but it's fun and helps me track what I've listened to :) As for what we like and don't like - sometime I hate things that win hugos and nebulas. So...

Re: Drabblecast 046 - The She-Wolf

Cute story. Kinda prefer to see people being rewarded for believing in the absurd, though. The voice acting was great, ya'll are crazy who disagree.

Re: Drabblecast 045 - The Fine Point

I'm on my third attempt to listen to this and get something out of it but still failing. Ending made no sense - if you discovered something amazing and weird about reality, you'd be excited and want to study it, not murder your old friend who discovered it. And the basic idea behind the story didn't...

Re: Drabblecast 043 - Jelly Park

This absolutely blew me away and I have no idea why. I just loved it!! I really can't imagine loving it the same way in text, though. The amazing production values definitely carried this to a whole new level. Amazing! I think we were so blown away that we all forgot to give props to the drabble, wh...

Re: Drabblecast 041 - Set Another Place at the Table...

Can't say I loved this story... gross premise plus...I have to say I have a deep prejudice against alien impregnation stories. Not that we're told this is necessarily ALIEN impregnation, but it's definitely in that vein. If it's birthed through the face... Why does the MC need to be a woman? Part of...

Re: Drabblecast 040 - Marbles

I enjoyed both of these, though I liked the Drabble more and the main story felt a bit predictable/lacking in depth. Ok though.
