That's why you haven't drawn any episode covers... You're not yet ready to kill us all! :shock:

Thankee Kindly. :P

Oh, I'm so sorry you don't like Frank Key. He's really one of my favorite authors, and I can't get enough of him. Oh well.

I too, created an account solely to talk about this story! And man, do I love it! I listened to it twice.

The mood created by the author was superb. It was dark, somber, and beautiful. The writing was elegant, without being pretentious or preachy. Rather than focusing on the supernatural, it was more about emotions, and human feelings of the extreme. In a way, everyone can relate to a character in this story, whether it be the witness, struggling to understand, the man filled with sorrow, or the victim, everyone sees a little bit of themselves in this story. I will definitely listen to it more times! :mrgreen:

Welcome aboard, Andrew Styles!

PS: I'm a little disappointed that nobody's made any "Quick on the draw(ing)" jokes yet.

Glad to be onboard Algernon. I hope to have my first ever published work in the Drabblecast before the end of the month! A short story I'm working on. Anyway, off topic. Still ADORE this story!

I just wanted to join the chorus of praise for this story. I found it very moving and I think it will stick with me a while. The atmosphere, the flavor of the story if you will, is what's lingering in my mind. It kind of got under my skin.

Also, poor Tom (of the story not the forums :D). I kind of want to take him home and bake him some cookies or something.
