Re: The Flight of the Mad Elf-King (Holiday Stories)

Really good and moody. From the title, I had this weird thought that it might be about Erl Koenig, who tries to steal sick children away from their parents, but Mad Santa works way better for a holiday story.

Re: The Four Bronies of the Apocalypse

Just had a thought for potential improvement. Ring Around the Rosies is supposed to be pestilence, but its calamity is more in line with war. Maybe instead of rainbow and glitter, it's gone around giving everyone chicken pox, so they have to stay home from school. Of course, there are probably other...

This is fantastic, Cutter. Definitely made me chuckle.

Re: Meeting the Grim Reaper (2014)

I was feeling somewhat existential when I was writing (that seems to be a common theme in the drabbles that I like), and I thought it would be interesting to do the role reversal with a bit of ambiguity as to who did the actual tricking here. After all, either of them could be saying thanks at the e...

Meeting the Grim Reaper (2014)

Leaning on my hatchet, I sigh. It hurts chopping wood, and it hurts not chopping wood, and it hurts deciding which to do. He glides by, scythe gleaming in the midday sun. You’d expect a clatter of bones when you see him, but sound dies in his presence. Everything dies near him. “It hurts being old,”...

Re: The Evil Seductress Talks Philosophy

Strawman: I think I missed the bit about this being an extreme law proposed by a commenter on a blog; I'm with Varda in terms of thinking that putting something in place to close a legal loophole would be for the best (although, a quick Google shows that 0.2% is way beyond legally drunk in the US--h...

Re: The Evil Seductress Talks Philosophy

I'm in agreement with Varda about the alcohol thing. The reason we have laws against operating heavy machinery while under the influence of mind altering substances is because there's a loss of faculty at play. I don't see a difference in saying that a person is incapable of responsibly consenting t...

Re: Drabblecast 300 – Bloodchild

In the last century century plus, the topic of species-splicing became the most horrifying of horror topics, beginning (I suppose) with Shelley's Frankenstein (1818), going on to Stevenson's Jekyl and Hyde (1886), and Wells' Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), all presuming the agency of scientists run am...

Friendship is Thick

Marmalade the unicorn galloped gleefully through the rolling hills of Summerberry Glen. On the next hill over, he spied another member of his herd grazing. It was that gloomy gus, Greyflicker. “Hello, Greyflicker!” called Marmalade. Greyflicker swished her tail and snorted. “Go away.” Cantering over...

Re: World Heritage Tours (Tourism Theme)

That's an interesting take on it that I didn't pick up on my first reading. I was getting more of a singularity vibe, like the espresso machines became sentient and then took over the world.

The Octopus Train (Relocation/Tourism)

The fog is thick enough that you feel your skin crawling despite the bone-freezing cold. Massive, moist tentacles slide into view, grasping and sucking at the tracks, the station, the passengers as they pull your ride out of obscurity. When it glides to a stop, a hatch opens, revealing glistening vi...

Voyage: A Microscropic View

On the day of departure, Darby wished his clones goodbye and set sail through the stars. He didn’t miss them much, since he filled the vessel with new ones within a few days. This voyage would be great. Several million generations later, Harvey stepped off the vessel and greeted the locals. They wer...

Earth 739

Richy always loved reading comic books growing up. His favorite stories revolved around time travel and alternate dimensions, with different versions of established heroes popping in to shake things up. He just had one complaint: all the bad stuff always happened in the alternate timelines. The hero...

A Weighty Matter

When Winston had first discovered the equation that would allow for instantaneous matter transportation, he knew he would revolutionize the world. The only problem he foresaw was the energy cost. It started relatively small, requiring only the wattage of a lightbulb. For larger objects, though, the ...
