Seemed right to start with a twabble.

Some fine twabbles, Oliver. Welcome to the DC forums!

I've cooked a pair of eyes to dine on.
My meal smells particularly good tonight.
Sadly, I cannot seem to find my utensils.
Any thoughts...?
This one smacks (heh, heh, get it? :roll: ) of that old camp song...

It circles, ever closer. Small piece descends to greet us, but pierces our skin! Not the friend we imagined. Aggressor!

Since you're new, we'll be lenient here. But please ask yourself if it is moral to achieve exactly 100 characters with words like ooohhhagghh.

Hey! No need to beat up on the newbies. (That's *my* job!)
Why don't you two hug it out.

Welcome aboard, Phyolhu!

Big hug, strawman, I’m not infectious yet.

I admit, I did cut the terrified scream at the end down, since it was a few characters too long. (It should probably get capitalized near the end for emphasis.)

Toxoplasma Gondii is a bacterial parasite passed from cats to humans, and it's been accused of altering human behavior. There was a Drabble on it on p328, which served to inspire this Drabble.

We, their grandchildren, look out on a bleak and broken world.
