“Voort-voort BING!” pinged the device.
“The very same.”
“Great Scott...” The Captain stared around at the alien landscape. It seemed the least likely planetoid in the universe to be capable of sustaining life, but the device with the blinky lights was never wrong. “What are we dealing with here?” he demanded. “Is it carbon-based? Silicon-based?”
“Cotton-based,” said Science Officer Bunsen, waving the device over a nearby crocheted conifer. “And further, the flashing device that goes ‘beep beep’ indicates that there is movement just behind that knitted knoll.”

Slagikal just couldn’t figure out what the problem was. Laini had rejected her pacifier, even after her mother dipped it in cheesecake. She pushed all her favorite foods away when she was seated in her high chair and no drink satisfied her tears. Her loving father, Jake had tried to cheer her up but her wailing never decreased. Jake ended up dealing with James who was throwing a fit because he wasn’t able to have more strawberries.Being Parents16 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

The doctor herself opened it. “I’m so pleased to meet you!” she beamed, shaking Professor Hamilton’s hand. “Do come in—I’d like you to meet someone.”
Professor Hamilton followed Dr. Winters into the office. There was a boy in his late teens waiting inside, sitting on one of three chairs.
“This is Toby,” said Dr. Winters.
Toby gave a nervous smile.
Dr. Winters indicated a chair to Professor Hamilton and sat down herself. “He’s a werechicken.”

“I hope I did already on that book report,” she worried aloud.
“You do alright on *every* book report!” Chibishin reminded her. “Heck you almost wrote a book about the book you read! You got nothing to worry about!” She then frowned slightly. “Unlike me. I swear I messed up on that report! I couldn’t even finish the book! It was sooooo boring!”

Raptors - FFM day 7Claws like daggers - how inaccurate. They were more like scimitars, curved and deadly.Raptors - FFM day 71 hour ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Scales like pebbles - hardly. More like a feather coat over a leathery shirt, bright against dull and whispering when they moved.
Teeth like knives - that, at least, was true. Hardly pearly whites, but serrated and pointed, designed to tear and rent the flesh -
- so seeing them take dainty bites out of cucumber sandwiches was the most unexpected thing I'd ever seen.
Well, the second-most unnexpected thing. The first had to be the monacle the biggest one was wearing. And the table with a lacy tablecloth. And the cake stand piled with brownies.
Six raptors in total, sqautting around the table. I suppose that makes sense - chairs wouldn't work for creatures with tails.
Six pairs of beady eyes turned to me.
I felt like they were taking me apart, readying to strike, to use those daggers to pull me limb from limb, to pull my insides to my outsides...
"Hello, fair lady."
I nearly died of shock.

He hadn't been NullRef.00 just a moment ago, but someone with a name and an identity and his own place in the world.

A Story about a Boy Mouse (Part 1)Once upon a time a little mouse by the name of Robert was doing his usual thing of scurrying about and being a general nuisance. Contrary to the belief he was looking for cheese, he was, in fact, actually trying to escape from a man. This man wasn't all that ordinary, rather Robert had the impression this man was far from such a word. His hair was a brilliant yellow with streaks of grey at the temples and he wore glasses perched on a crooked nose that always seemed to be running with snot. When the man worked in that small enclosed study, he sniffed constantly. Either he had a perpetual cold or he was full of disdain. Wearing a white lab coat, a dark green sweater with various stains and loose threads, it was easy to tell that the man hardly knew the meaning of manual labor which most likely was why his face was red as he chased the mouse. Robert darted underneath a table, briefly stopping in the shadow to catch his breath and get his bearings straight.A Story about a Boy Mouse (Part 1)3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
