Re: Drabblecast 425 – Unlike Most Tides

The excerpts from Darcy Little Badger's intro sounds like huge fun. What episode was that?

The Pharaoh

As my father and my grandfather before him I spent my life preparing for the afterlife. Thousands of workers and artisans prepared a tomb fit for a king. They died to maintain the secret of my tomb's location and serve me in the next world. The gods call out to me. Awakening to my new life, I feel t...

What better way to spread my DNA than to clone myself and kill everyone else?

Now I just need to make my clones submit to me.

As with the best laid plans of mice and men, we spent billions watching the skies yet no one ever saw the black hole coming.

You should have tested it before you put her in the thing

Merry Christmas

School bored me as a kid. While sitting in class one day I had a thought. I wondered if I might really be connected to machines, experiencing a synthetic reality. But for what purpose? Could it be, I wondered, that this life experience is a just class? In some distant future could the real me be exp...

Re: Peace and Quiet

This might make a good opera
