The child woke and the world, with all its people and wonder, disappeared in the blink of an eye. I hope he'll remember us.

He hid in shadow. "You scared me," she gasped. "Naturally. I'm a vampire." Last week he was a pirate. God damn Hollywood!

He walked in, the brim of his hat shadowing his faces. All eyes turned to the man faster than Euclid.

You are what you eat, they say. But It's hard to keep an appetite when your food keeps screaming. At least I know I am alive.

And as the child yawned and wiped sleep from his eye, the world fell from his fingertip, lost on the carpet among the dust.

This twabble is clever enough, but it's based on a saying I despise.

Besides the biological absurdity, common sense should show the idiocy of this saying.

Need more mice? No problem, just let one get eaten a few times. After all the cat becomes the mouse (or many -- all of that mass has to go somewhere).

There'd be no point in eating nor any need for sex! :? (Or I suppose I'd turn into a [censored].)

How can you despise it, ASID?
Where would cannibalism be without it?

Then again, Strawman, if a cannibal made a point of only eating vegetarians, is he really a cannibal? :lol:

Then it dawned on him. She was beautiful in that squelching-tentacles-for-a-mouth sort
of way. And then they kissed?!

It would be presumptuous and self-serving of me to say that I eat vegans because of any complex or altruistic philosophical leanings.

They just taste good.

It's like the light meat/dark meat thing. The skin needs to have some fat to get that crispy flavor. I say Norm's rule works for this too. You judge the badassdedness of a fish by what it eats. Bread? Veggies? That's carp. But you want that wild gamey flavor, the fight's half the adventure. The other stuff is Fast Flesh.

You must be watching your cholesterol.

I blinked as the sun came up. My enemies were ripped to shreds, but not because of me. The soft flutter of wings pleased me.
