Welcome a'oard, thefictionalist!

Alas, that was not a twabble; it was too short.

Also, the last word should be 'read, or perhaps 'eads if you are craft-y. ;)

I'm not an invisible tangerine I'm an unseen tangerine. It's just that no one ever notices me—I sat right behind you yesterday.

Thanks - I was reading the wrong number of characters. I also clearly can't spell "bread". This does not bode well.

Her: a pretty, blonde virgin; Him: a crazed cult leader. When they met she fell in love. When they parted she fell in lava.

The war began with the shriek of rockets, then ended years hence so quietly that no one even noticed, and so it continued.

Although Alan's twabmentia had consumed 99 others in short order, he felt compelled to sacrifice one final character.

(Gang: please note that I had initially pasted in the wrong version. This explains any comments about word shortage.

Here is what I had originally posted: Although Al's twabmentia had consumed 99 others, he felt compelled to sacrifice one final character.

Above is the correct version I wanted to post. Please forgive a newbie's missteps.)

Bonus for coining "twabmentia", but demerits for that not being a twabble. (You sacrificed 14 characters. ;) )

Hmmm. And they were both more "accomplished" in legend than in actual life... (Counting only Star Wars movie canon, anyway)

A good man, he said, "Don't ask what your country can do for you. Ask what your country can do TO you."

Our masters shot him.

They made love, until they hated each other; they hated each other, until they made love again, forever living in tango.

A clause is a clause if you obey the laws to write, giving pause to some because they read. But faux pas withdraw applause.

A phrase conveys ideas in many ways but not always. Raising a great phrase can daze; it stays in mind and pays with praise.

A verb that's superb can perturb and disturb. A pronoun is renowned for wearing the crown. Some words have four letters.

I triple-dog dare Norm to read this one on the podcast!

But there seems to be some errors. You've got "Bite be". That should probably be "Bite me", or "Byte me". Punctuation is also missing as is any of the necessary string packaging -- this would cause a buffer overflow! (But never mind that. Just download this nice, safe, twabble onto your machine. And while you're at it, turn off that pesky antivirus. :twisted: )
