Re: A Mess of Feathers

The script is normally you make the participant think he's a chicken, rather than thinking the audience is a chicken.

I kept rewriting this one. I think I'm more happy that the idea is gone from my head, rather than being really pleased with it.

A Mess of Feathers

“And three…Two…One…Awaken.” Farmer Ben blinked several times as the audience laughed, and the hypnotist helped him up off the chair. They laughed and cheered when he got on his overalls, and picked up his pitchfork. He chewed on his tobacco, peering in the dark. He saw feathered shapes in the dark, ...

The Sleepless Queen

Talafiara, the queen of the fairies, sat alone in the marble garden atop the Harold Washington library. At every corner of the building, the great Bronze Owls searched the city and beyond. Beneath her, the amassed knowledge of the world was stacked in half a dozen layers, hovering over a glyph that ...

Loutrec Wept

The tiny sprite within the glass danced in emerald joy, sailing in and out of sight as the liquid poured. She beckoned to all at the table, enticing, enchanting. She was the gateway to inspiration, and music, or so the mortals believed. Her heart was wormwood, and her true gifts were madness and dea...

The Doll

“So what went wrong?” “Nothing! I swear! The doll was made from the finest porcelain, fired in the tradition of the great alchemists, painted with the wishes of little girls, and the tears of the women they would become. The glass of her eyes were made from the sands of time. Her hair was threaded g...

Re: On the Menu

Change that from bronx to Cermak Avenue in Chicago, and you're spot on. Disagreements bring arguments. Arguments bring cleavers, cleavers bring meat, meat goes into the pot.

Gotta be ready for lunch hour.

On the Menu

“What’s on the menu?” “All sorts of good things. Fox oden, Nine demon soup…” The intern looked down at the menu, Trying to read the characters next to the prices. It didn’t help that they kept shifting on the page as he tried to read them. “Isn’t this the Nine Demon Café?” “Yep. Run by nine demons.”...

“Lolita!” “Been there.” “Fairy Kei!” “Too fluffy.” “Guro!” “Well…” “What?” “The hardest part of any fashion, especially when you put it out online, is finding a look you like, and getting enough pieces and practice to make that look your own.

A very sparkle scrapbook

The queen of the sparkleponies worked on her scrapbook as her fairy assistants fluttered, glistening under the glass of the sacred moon chamber. She examined the pages, containing hundreds of images of sparkleponies, each one more darling and dimpled than the next. She took her time, affixing new pi...

Scratch

She knelt reverently in the basement of 2nd Hand Tunes. Surrounding her were theosophic seances, throat music, and the chantings of Siberian Khlysty pressed in vinyl. She gathered the records into a pile, and climbed the stairs. The cashier smiled as she gathered her funds. “Interesting mix.” “We’ll...
