My thoughts exactly. I finished that and went, whoa, Red October with super villains? Awesome. I don't have anything to add to this discussion other than I loved this story. Whale done. :mrgreen:

From Norm's twitter, the tune is Jingle Bell Hell by Kris Knight. Thanks to @ArbysMom!


I submitted my post, which followed yours, before yours appeared, but as it was my first post, it awaited moderation. Glad to help out, and thrilled (and surprised) I got such a quick response from Norm!

And thanks for the welcome! Long time listener, first time poster, yadda yadda. ;D

This story seems tailor-made for Norm, and the Narrative style and narration couldn't have been more awesome together.


I couldn't agree more! I can't imagine anyone else reading this. It's perfect for/with Norm.

Nothing much to add here, either. Loved the story, laughed out loud most of the way through.

And Varda, loved the drabble this time even more than I did when I first read it in the forums. I think maybe I'd forgotten about it (and the original title). Great work.

P.S., my name is misspelled on http://www.drabblecast.org/2013/05/07/drabblecast-282-liane-the-wayfarer/, so don't feel bad.

Thanks, everyone for the kind words about the drabble. :) I was right pleased with how Norm produced it. And now I have some nifty new gothic Christmas music!

Oops, Varda sent me the correct speeling. Got it changed. If it's not visible right away, you're still seeing a cache. It will clean up.

Varda, gotta give you props - loved your drabble and listened to it a couple extra times for fun... Something I pretty much never do with drabbles!

I listened to this great episode tonight as I drove home past both Pentagon and DARPA HQ in the darkness. I wonder if someday we will learn that a Drabblecast episode has inspired something in either place?

I just finally listened to this one the other day and I loved it. I really like the idea of what's essentially an alien psychology in a creature that has evolved on this world.
