Stressing Out Over a Short Story

with 12 comments

The short story in question can be found here:

REMINDER: I’m posting TWO comics a day until the week is over. Check below for an earlier comic!

No lyrics today. Tara is playing Kirby on the SNES in the background, and it has some bouncy, techno-esque tunes. Take that as you will…

  1. Darling, you know your writing is superb, I’m sure that they will read it and LOVE it. Reading your work is so exciting, and so detailed. Your work is so unique and I’ve never read anything quite like it. You have awesome work, you’ll go far, my darling.

    Sorry if this isn’t coherent…Monica IS yelling in the background about the youtube lady.

  11. Just got around to reading your short story. I enjoyed it a lot. And you totally caught me off guard with the ending. I was like “Hey–where’s the rest of it? Oh. Ohhhh.”

    My favorite part:

    Dr. Latimer clicked his tongue twice and shrugged. “You might melt.”

    Turning my hands into makeshift claws, I growled and said, “But we’re not animals.”

    That made me laugh out loud in one of those short, cynical kinds of laughs.

  12. Thanks, Trina! A little dark humor goes a long way, heh…
