Re: Mushroom Hunting and the Angler Pine

I quite liked this. Clever idea for a monster.

I wonder though, why was the boy wearing floppy ears? Was he a real dog, or a boy pretending to be a dog?

Damascus

Sitting by the windows I watch the stars. The engine hums and everyone is asleep. The Damascus marches onwards, towards a distant star. We left behind the ashes of our fathers on Terra, trekking onwards into the inky black. I, the captain’s son, have taken his place. Piloting the Damascus is easy. I...

Drawing from the Drabblecast?

I've been thinking about making an audio fiction podcast recently, and I'm working on compiling a set of stories I want to read and produce on the show. I'm going to do a mixture of original stories by me, stories in the public domain, and if possible, some stories taken from writing forums such as ...

Contradictions

My prompt was to write a story in which every sentence contradicted the last. Hope y'all enjoy! Contradictions John walked down the city street. The tires on his bike were flat, and the alley smelled of cigarettes and garbage. She buttoned up her shirt, and walked into the massive skyscraper where s...

Re: Drabblecast 292 – Hollow As The World

I, honestly, didn't really like the story. To me, it just felt like a glorified "CreepyPasta", and it never truly felt very Lovecraftian. I kept waiting, and it never came. I was really hoping for a cool Lovecraft-ish video game story, but for me, this came up short.

[No Tresspassing/ Lovecraft Theme] Chosen

I climbed over the high, chain link fence. The moon cast a pallid glow over everything. It was so bright. The large crater ringed by withered trees was just where I had left it. Not that it would have moved. After years of studying must old tomes and ancient folklore, I was finally ready. I jumped d...

Re: Drabblecast 284 – Turning Point

i thought the "Assimilation" was a bit jarring. Genocide was discussed, and all of a sudden, they just become integrated. Other than that, I found the story a bit scary. Imagine if they weren't so peaceful! What a great story, and all in all, I liked it.

Mark died, but the song kept playing. When he said he wished that "Friday" would never end, he meant the day, not the song.

Hooray for a hastily written, first twabble!

Re: Drabblecast 283 – The Man Who Drew Cats

I too, created an account solely to talk about this story! And man, do I love it! I listened to it twice. The mood created by the author was superb. It was dark, somber, and beautiful. The writing was elegant, without being pretentious or preachy. Rather than focusing on the supernatural, it was mor...
