And a Jar Nearby, Its Lid Poked Full of Holes

Post by Scattercat » Sat Sep 11, 2010 7:05 am

Sizzle, sizzle, pop went the campfire.

"You're holding it too close." Molly reached out to push the stick up.

"Am not!" Rudy pulled away.

"You are! It's going to catch on fire."

"I know." Rudy scooted down the log and settled in, watching intently.

Madison picked her teeth and pulled out a translucent wing. There was a hiss and a brief scream as Rudy's burst into flame.

"I told you," said Molly.

"They're better this way."

"I don't know why you bother," said Madison. "When they get all crispy and black like that, you can hardly taste the pixie dust."

who the heck eats innocent fairies? It's a good story, though.

Love this one. It screams 'Drabblecast'. It screams it so hard, in fact, that its tiny fairy lungs explode.

Thanks, guys!

Man, between "The Work That Must Be Done" and the reaction here, apparently I'm only *truly* popular when I torment icons of innocence and joy. That probably says something about one of us, but I'm not sure what or about whom.

@uncre8d1
Glad you enjoyed them. I've got plans to turn "Practical Demonstration" into a full story, actually, as soon as I get the two extant on my plate finished off. Hopefully, now that I have weekends again...

Let me throw my concurrence into the ring.
I am particularly fond of The Wisest Stone.
Makes me think of Keith Richards.
