Re: Drabblecast 416 – Necessary Cuts

This was a really great Lovecraft salute, and I liked the authors spin on where the story came from. At the time of listening to this, my own job was pretty stressful, and I too had horrific and painful words appearing everywhere, along with horrible flashbacks and dreams.

Re: Drabblecast 415 – The Best Scarlet Ceremony Ever!

I really enjoyed this story. Lightheart teenage angst with a touch of comming of age, set in a weird and wonderful world.
