Drabblecast 422 – The Full Moon Group
By: Dianne M. Williams
Time was running out, and Matt couldn’t stand the thought of driving home for the change. He turned off the car in the parking lot across the street from the stone church and checked the address. The internet ad said: “Shifter Support — we welcome all shifters. We take security seriously…

In these trying times, this for me was a great regrounding in the weird and a needed distraction from the world. This is classic Drabblecast.

Point 1: Intro for Depends.... This was just down right weird and amazing. From the the natural distain for babies we all share to embracing laziness of moving 10 ft to defecate it was win all the way. I was actually in a coffee shop with a screaming baby strapped to my chest, and a big dumb smile on my face. So good.

Point 2: The main story. I cant say how much I loved this, the great turns of the story to the narration, I was transported away. Such a great reimagining of the werewolf storyline. When Matt describes the hazards of turning into a were-teddy bear at a college dorm was so true (recalls passing out at a party and getting permanent marker tattoos). The characters were identifiable, and each felt unique. The happy ending was just what the story needed.

Thanks twix! These are indeed weird and amazing times we live in. I too loved the alternate "coming out" angle that Matt went through. I also reeeaally wasnt expecting a happy ending when I first read this and was glad that it delivered!
