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...?

Misunderstood

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.

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.

No one commented on this one. I think it deserves it. This one was good, and I did a double-take before I got it.

Consequences

Tough times

In former times we fought wars over mineral resources.
Now we fight for fresh water, for dry land, and for our very lives.

It was like "The Day The Earth Stood Still" but without the aliens. Just a global realisation that we're totally fucked.

It fits a little better without being so obvious about what befell our new expendable ambassador.:
Hello, I'm James and I've been appointed Ambassador to our new undead citizens. A hug, all of you? You sure are friendly!
