A Damp Squib Professor Hattersley took his place at the podium, ignoring the less than kind murmurs that spread through the audience as he crossed the stage. Talk didn’t bother him. For one thing, he was used to it. For another, after this conference the talk would be different. He set the shoebox-sized casket of gold and lapis lazuli before him.A Damp Squib1 day ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
“Esteemed colleagues,” he began. “I am aware that my research has drawn a certain amount of scorn in the past, and I appreciate that a degree of scepticism is only healthy.” The murmurs showed no sign of abating. If there was one good thing about being an academic pariah, it was that it did wonders for one’s public speaking skills. He spoke louder. “The idea that the deities of ancient Egypt were not merely the invention of a primitive society, but powerful visitors from another dimension, will no doubt have a dramatic effect on Egyptology, and indeed the study of all

When RAW came back from commercial it cut to a reply from last week on Raw when Pamela Higgins snapped after losing to AJ Lee to a quick roll-up only to attack the Divas Champion after the match and flinging AJ violently into the guardrail before hitting her signature Umaga style hip attack with AJ’s head being crushed between Pam’s big rear-end and the guardrail but Pam’s rampage wasn’t over as the replay from a week ago also showed Pam throwing a glass of water right in the face of Jerry Lawler before cutting back to the commentary team of JBL, Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler.
“Now I know that you weren’t there last Friday Night on Smackdown King” mentioned Cole while footage of Pam hijacking commentary along with Cole and JBL was shown as Cole continued “Pamela hijacked the commentary from us and threatened us, bullied us and then this happened” Cole said as it cut to Pam pie-facing Co

Blimps are very large things.
Also very slow.
Before this moment, I never thought I would pilot one.
Because of that, I have no idea what I'm doing.
I'm hoping, just hoping if I don't touch anything nothing bad will happen.
But I have to.
Because there is something in front of the blimp.
There's also something below the blimp as well.
I call the thing below the blimp, the ground.
It must really like me because it's coming toward me fast.
So I have to do something.
I could go back and think of how I got into this.
The situation, not the blimp.
The blimp was easy to get into.
Well, the past is the past.
I should forget about it and focus on driving this blimp.
Is that the right thing say?
Do people "drive" blimps?
Do I put blimp driver on my resume?
No, I feel.
I feel...like a CAPTAIN.
That's right, I'm a captain.
I'll put that on my resume because captains are cool.
I'm still getting closer to crashing.
There's a steering wheel.
It looks like the ones on boat

Teenage Zombie Monologues 1There are these vacant memories of who I was before and I long for those days when I was part of the living and not someone who slowly stumbles around, devouring the first human I can get my mouth on. I am consumed by the thought of brains. Mmm... brains. I am just a teenage zombie.Teenage Zombie Monologues 123 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
These memories are there. I remember a day when I wasn't this flesh craving creature and people didn't run from me (or try to shoot me; luckily a lot of them are bad shots). There were people that I called friends. There were people who loved me. Now, small children run screaming, adults take aim with their firearms and I repulse everyone with the smell of my decaying, rotting, flesh. I am just a teenage zombie.
There was this boy once. He was captain of the football team. Tall, athletic and actually did his best in school. I thought we were once destined to be together. But who am I fooling? He wants the pretty, alive girl. Not a member of the undead. Besides, I would probably just end up eating our childr

That evening by the light of the full moon, Harry slipped into his neighbours house and rummaged through the kitchen.
He gnawed and he nibbled until nothing remained unscathed, and left several droppings on the kitchen counter as a parting present. Let them see how it felt.
His alarm clock that morning was the dulcet screams of the neighbours wife entering her kitchen.
“It’s eaten all my bloody Camembert!” Roared his neighbour.
When he’d been bitten earlier that year, he’d thought it was the end of the world. But given time to acclimatise, he’d come to see that his disease had its perks.
Being a Were-mouse was actually quite useful, and he always had been very fond of cheese.

“No.” Chrissie crossed her arms and puffed out her cheeks in defiance of the request. “Chrissie, you can’t say no to this.” Dracul sat on the rock parallel from her. “Yes, I can. I said ‘No.’ so no.” Chrissie stood from her spot and walked into in the shallow river.
“Chrissie, you just have to check up on him, that’s all.” Dracul walked along the bank next to her. “And if he catches me? You know what he’s capable of! It’d be ten times worse for me! I can’t die!” Chrissie harshly turned to face Dracul.
“What is with everyone and yelling at me today?” Dracul spoke defensibly. “I’m sorry I yelled, but still no is a no.” Chrissie crossed her arms and turned her back to him. “Chrissie please. Do it for Trandafira.” Dracul kneeled down. “By doing this, we’ll be in your debt.”

After Hex and Abaleen have been together for a while Shawn has taken me out on a date, and we've hung out. I know that he's interested in me but I'm not sure about him...

So, I got up, and in hopes of being funny, I said “Well, at least it wasn't a pangolin!” That only made everyone look my way, and so I stuck my foot into my mouth. So yeah, I quickly bought my toilet plunger, and a lamp, and then ran down the street to my hippo party. Well, when I got there, I found there no hippos, but instead, a bunch of dancing T-rex-cow slipper mutations with laser eyes!
