Lastly, he wished to fly. His crashed corpse suggested it should have been the second, and wishing to land safely third.

Drinks Are on Him

He annoyed her, so she maced him. Not that wimpy junk in a can, a real 20 pound mace with spikes. Yes, he had a "crush" on her.

I listen to nothing but ambient music, listen for the secret messages. I cannot stop. It is how they communicate with me.

Here's my first twitfic. It's called "Mining on Pluto"

Diminuitive barren mineshafts and waste heaps pocked the surface. What the hell did we expect to find on a Dwarf Planet?

Ha! That adds a lot! You can never have too many Lovecraft references although putting a title on a twabble just feels like cheating to me :) . How about adjusting it to read:
She was ecstatic about her new Cthulhu tattoo, displaying it proudly; until it began to whisper insidiously in her ear.
Make it "The Girl With The Dagon Tattoo".

"Come to Earth" the planetary tourism brochure read, "and take in the local atmosphere. Surprisingly rich in oxygen!"

OK, this one is very funny and didn't get the attention it deserves. I hope Unca Norm keeps it on tap for next year's Nigerian Scam Spam Contest!

His only passion, besides designing new color laser printers, was writing horror stories. What was his name, weirdos?

Tomorrow I will see my baby. I have inherited my great aunt, a frozen fetus until today. She is no more an unwanted burden.


My first, what do you think? Suggestions or criticism are welcome. I'm not a practiced writer.

I have some questions: say you jump the gun a bit. Is a refreeze possible? If so, should there be a legal limit on the number of refreezes? At what age does a person get the right to challenge the refreeze decision? Finally, when do you celebrate birthdays?

I think it could go two ways if you were to write the story. Right now the child is legally born when it is first unfrozen. That's so you don't have 18 year old infants. It could be possible that the abeyance process uses the placenta to replace the fetus's blood so once the umbilical cord is cut, the process can not be repeated. But some clever scientist could get around that. And anyone could then have their blood replaced and take a few decades to flash forward. Abeyance is a stepping stone tech.
I tried to not get too technical to leave some wiggle room for authors.

The hot world exploded in inanity. Laughter bled from lips like blood did from the lunatic’s faces.
If the world ends slowly, a descending mass of nothingness crushing our heads as if lowered down by string, than it should end well - with sex, revelry, and silliness.

Who Am I

Post by CLP » Wed Aug 18, 2010 9:43 pm

Who am I, you ask? As made apparent by your spilt entrails ensnaring my dagger, I am an assassin. Is my answer sufficient?
