Re: <Cursed> <Alien> <Outcast> <Valentines>

Truth. A lot of my Facebook friends from elsewhere thought it was hilarious that we shut down everything because of the snow Friday. They don't understand that Louisiana's roads (and drivers) are bad enough in normal weather. People lose their minds when there's snow or ice.

Re: <Cursed> <Alien> <Outcast> <Valentines>

We got a good bit of sleet here, but somehow we still have electricity (which is truly amazing for this area). Roads are icy and crappy, but nothing too terrible.

Re: <Cursed> <Alien> <Outcast> <Valentines>

That's a statement, not a fact.

Also, I hate it when I get the glossolalia, especially when nobody's around to interpret. Charisma are such a burden.

Nice work, charleslucas!

Unboxing (Cursed! theme)

I get the impression that this box is really a sight to behold. The wood grain, apparently, is like nothing you've ever seen. There's some beautiful writing carved into it, in a long-dead language. Someone always pays good money for it. After a while, they decide to open it. But then, just when I'm ...

Re: One More Year

Nice! At first, I was going to say something about how this is a more gentle offering than most gods demand... but then I thought better of it. A lot of sweat and tears, at least, went into that manuscript. By the way, I was totally expecting this to go in another direction, like the "book" was a ma...

I missed so many of these! "And then the duck" is amazing. As for my own drabbles, "Exponential Growth" is the probably the one I'm most proud of... but of the ones that didn't make it out of the forum, "Does Not Kill Us" ( http://forums.drabblecast.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5085 ) and "Facebook, TX"...

If he starts shaking the knife like a Polaroid picture, then I'll really be freaked out.

Re: Friendship.Exe

Varda, I love this whole story. Every single element of it. The idea of [spam?]chatbots having mechanical bodies that they only use on special occasions was unexpected, and this was a particularly cute way to pose questions about the nature of friendship in the information age.

The Abyss Also Gazes (Hopeless Romantic theme)

When his beloved first appeared, it seemed as if the world were upside down. He felt like a hollow imitation of himself, being filled with giddy joy and exhilaration, the way a leaky boat fills with water. He could stare for hours at those flowing locks, those beautiful eyes, the firm, toned muscles...
