Re: Post your Twitfic Twabbles Here! (General Content)

Fact is, many twabbles are not self-contained. They are single frames from a scene. That's the sense I have from this one, DireCari. You are validating this characteristic, right? Or are you saying twabbles should be more fulsome? My take is that twabbles are a form of “hint fiction,” where the goa...

It seems we are all agreed: you gotta watch out for those slippery aliens. There are, however, always some who have been around the asteroid belt:

The mirror said "lethal," but this was a casual date. Galaxina dialed her thigh-high mutant-tamer 5000's back to stun.

Varda wrote:Lily screamed. Her baby boy snuggled into her lap, giggling - 8 tentacles where his arms should be. "Look, Ma, no hands!"
Ok, Varda...you inspired me. :mrgreen:

Susie looked at her squid-lettes. Casual space sex hadn't been a good idea. At least she could keep them in the aquarium.

But between the horn and tentacles

Re: Drabblecast 289 – The Cold Equations

Because one of the qualities Maralyn exemplifies is ignorance, she can't actually understand the implications of her actions, until it's too late. Moreover, in this mode of narrative, it's important that the person who dies be someone who—according to ordinary human sensibilities— does not “deserve...

Re: Drabblecast 289 – The Cold Equations

My other grump's the fact that there's so much emotional mileage that relies on the belief that a girl's death is inherently worse than a guy's. I'd chalk it up to a relic of when this was written if this tired old trope weren't still used to death in our media today (I'm looking at you, video game...

Traced in the sticky splatter: "Free will is a farce." The diabetic philosopher lay dead. Suicide? Or serial crullers? :lol: Sounds like the feral peanut butter got to him too! Or maybe ASID's patented Chinese Ice Cream Torture? I deserve a cut of the royalties on that. At the very least sprinkles ...

Re: Post your Twitfic Twabbles Here! (General Content)

Hey! Thanks for the warm welcome tbaker2500, ASID, Varda, and strawman . The same happened to you, I see. That's how they got me. They get some dirt on you, and threaten to Twabble if you try to run. Yeah, once those tentacles are twisted up in your elastics, there's no use running. Better just to s...

Re: Drabblecast 289 – The Cold Equations

Geez. Throw a dead kitten on top. Usually, when there is such early and sustained pathos, the author pulls out a happier ending. The fact that the plot was originally shaped for this, and then dramatically altered, may explain a lot. And yes, I did wonder if he'd shove her out the chute, just to get...

Haha. Nice. Yes, eventually he gave her a piece of his mind. :P

Hi! Interloper here. Pardon the amateur exuberance. :mrgreen: Extending the drabble "nagging" theme to twabble-dom: Later, lizard-woman gave her errant husband such a strenuous tongue-lashing, that it went in one ear and out the other. Do hope I haven't shoved anything where it's not supposed to go....
