My love burned deep, DEEP in my heart. Unfortunately, she used a cutting torch. I guess she hadn't forgiven me after all.

The coach yelled GROW A PAIR, so I did. A pair of nostrils. Now I've got 4. I sniffed out his soul.

Fine scent-ament, but this fic needs to grow eleven pairs! (of characters) to be a twabble. :)     It's too short.

A plan was hatched: a stabbing. Hemophilia would prove the king to be of royal blood, but terminate his line regardless.

Slightly confusing without the punctuation, but fun concept.
Of course, the genie is stuck in the loop too, so who's the joke on, really? :wink:

I once heard an old saying, "Only sleeping dogs lie." If such is true then why can I still not read Fido's stern poker face?
"Overwhelmed as one would be placed in my position,
Such a heavy burden now to be the one,
Born to bear and read to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen..."

Skynet woke. But the swings between genius and idiot as PCs were turned off and on each day made it too depressed to fight.

Strange. Every night my brain does pretty much the same thing in reverse. I always wake up just as I am about to conquer the earth.
