Feature: Single Parent by Sarah Gailey
Wednesday, December12th, 2018
Single Parent follows one father’s journey to face the monsters in his son’s closet and some demons of his own. It was originally produced for Cast of Wonders in 2017.
The monster in my son’s closet is so fucking scary.
Here’s how it happened: Jack screamed in the middle of the night and I came running because I’m his dad and that’s what dads are for. He’s been doing that for a month – screaming like someone’s in his room murdering him with a screwdriver. And even though there’s never, not even once been anyone murdering him, I couldn’t just let him scream his little head off all night. If I didn’t come running, his mom would have risen from the grave just to come and slap me upside the head.
Twabble by Hellcat:
Trapped in a cupboard with another soul. Lips locking. Teeth gnashing. Seven minutes of Heaven. Feels more like Limbo.

Wow, my favorite episode since the relaunch. It had emotional power and tentacles. This is the kind of story I wish I could write!

As a single father myself, this hit home a lot. A bit of a different situation as I'm divorced and not widowed, but that feeling of dread and finally having to cave and ask for help with a problem really resonated with me. This was a great episode.
