Fountain

On a busy afternoon in the park, two lovers stopped in front of the gleaming brass fountain. She asked him for a coin. He pulled one from his pocket and handed it to her. “What will you wish for?” He had to raise his voice just short of a yell to be heard over the drone of leaf blowers and shouts fr...

Re: Drabblecast 335 - To Whatever

Great work all around. The story, narration, and Norm's quips were spot-on. I think the glitched version had some good moments, but it wasn't nearly as good as the actual episode.

Herbert peeled the sticky note from the tape in Miskatonic University’s archives. Warning unheeded, he pressed play.

Re: Drabblecast 335 is messed up

I had just assumed that it was some sort of a avant-garde performance piece where the repetition and interruptions slowly eat away at your sanity. Quite the cylcoplean and unutterable experience.

Ia! Ia!

Re: Drabblecast 330 – Trifecta XVIII

I really enjoyed all three stories. The imagery from Earth Music will probably stay with me until my dying day.

Large birds screeched the intro to “Hotel California” yet again. Dan groaned. “Don’t you eagles know any other songs?”

Souvenirs

Drive your car into an empty field, away from the city. Move the body from the trunk to the front seat and put your nose studs and earrings into the flesh of the corpse. With a little luck and a gallon of unleaded, it might fool the investigators for a while. They haven’t found the others yet but yo...

Quality Control

I lift the spoon to my lips again and force myself to chew the briny yellow paste, swallowing a scream that no one in the factory would even hear. I once squished the brightly colored blobs into shapes, mixing bits from each plastic tub in the hopes that my eyes would trick my tastebuds. It didn’t m...

The old house was silent except for a woman’s voice. “The girl heard a screech,” Terri said, raising the flashlight under her chin for effect. “And then when she looked—” “There was an axe in her back seat!” Malcolm interrupted. “Boring.” “No. Would you let me finish?” Her reserves of patience were ...

Jan dropped the newspaper. “It’s done,” she said, stepping over the pile of dead butterflies. The time machine vanished. Not bad, but it's too long . Twabbles are required to be exactly 100 characters, not counting whitespace. Yikes! I must have nudged something the wrong way on the third revision....

The turkey enveloped my wrist with a freezing slime. In and out, I thrusted my gloved fist to the action on the screen, occasionally slapping the bird's side with my free hand as the scene demanded. The actors would be in the booth later to loop their moans and gasps, but for now, I was alone with a...

The dolphin adjusted his hat and coat, watching the yellow busses hungrily. School was out; it was time to catch dinner.

Thanks so much! I've been on a microfiction bender since listening to three Drabblecasts in a row on a car trip.
