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

Since no-one has put up this week's story discussion HINT HINT! :), I offer up this twabble in honour of the donor of the week, and his strange hobby:

One by one the vegetarians arrived to the aroma of roasting Swedes. "Ah, I do love a good vegetarian meatup," one sighed.

OK, even after several days, it seems I'm going to be the first to ask: Just what exactly DID Paul intend to do with the moustache, as he reached for it right at the end? Oh, and for those discussing lichen/lycan - my first thought was also "lichen" although I got "lycan" immedia...

Re: "Best Story" Finals! Vote Here

I like the whole spectrum from goofy oddball stories like "Toast" to the deep and heavy stuff, like this weeks story. Drabblecast has had a tradition for great variety, and it seems that variety is what I think of as defining the weekly audio magazine we are all codependent on. That being...

Re: Drabblecast 150- Morris and the Machine by Tim Pratt

I could say so much about this episode, but I'll sum it up by saying that the rest of the year will be a search for numbers 2 through 5 in my 2010 Peoples Choice votes. I beg your pardon, don't you mean 3 through 5? Apart from that horrendous omission (which means, I'm afraid, ROU Killing Time is G...

Re: Drabblecast 149- So You're Going to Die by Robert Reed

I felt like the story strayed too far into "big" ideas at the end, and this corresponded with the hitman coming out of character to wax philosophical. What does this greedy amoral bastard care about a great meeting of the minds in the depths of space? Is that something we can really belie...

Yes, he was a hit man, but then when he discovered the soul-trapper and ensured it worked by terrifying her, it seemed like she had arranged for the hit herself. Hmmm, didn't feel like that to me. More like he was curious to see what would happen, as it was stated that it was the first time he had ...

OK, first candidate for People's Choice 2010, in my opinion. In answer to dreamrock's question - he wants the money because he's a sociopath. Just because he got an official pardon doesn't mean isn't still the kind of person who would kill for money. Now he gets to do it legally. But if you're going...

OK, here's my favourites for the year. 1. Teddy Bears and Tea Parties -- most awesome story of the year; twisted Alice themes ftw 2. The Golden Age of Fire Escapes -- hard to explain, loved the psycho retro art nouveau feel 3. Clown Eggs -- seriously, there's nothing scarier than a clown 4. Trifecta...
