Patreon microfiction: ‘Epiphany.’

It’s not the first time I’ve played with the ideas, ah, immortalized in “Epiphany.”  The basic concept interests me; what happens when you change your ways, but not your style?  Apparently, in this case you end up shouting a lot.

PATREON!

…Great, now he’s gotten me doing it, too.

Patreon microfiction: “Place at the Table.”

Place at the Table” is perhaps… snarky.  Cheeky?  Oh, my, yes, cheeky. I find that sometimes that’s rather hard to do, in only one hundred words.

Patreon! Get it while it’s Pa! …You should read that as if it was spelled ‘pay,’ mind.

Patreon Microfiction: “And a Bottle of (Guaranteed Earth-Distilled!) Rum.”

There’s not much to “And a Bottle of (Guaranteed Earth-Distilled!) Rum,” I think. It’s funny enough as a 100 word microfiction, but you’d have to add a lot to make the idea really pop. And even if you did, well, the idea’s been done before. To put it mildly.

PATREON? Patreon!

Patreon microfiction: ‘Bug Wars.’

Let us all be honest with each other folks: in the world of “Bug Wars,” we’re all watching the show and never missing an episode. We might as well, because the show’s going on anyway. Besides, serves the little buggers right for being the next sentient species on Earth — although they’ll end up being soul-swapped with the Great Race anyway, so maybe we’re not getting the short end of the stick after all.

Patreon! Come on, I wanna write more Bold Marauder serial pulp.

Patreon microfiction: Empire Building.

Empire Building” is cynical, accusatory, and is only spared from being potentially libelous because it ain’t libel if it’s true. Or it would be true, if the scenario found within was both possible, and actually happened.  Against bureaucracy, the gods themselves contend in vain.

Patreon Microfiction: “And Don’t Come Back.”

As per “And Don’t Come Back:” i find that, as I get older, I get just a little less tolerant of letting bygones be bygones. Sometimes you just can’t let things get away with things. Even if it’s the utilitarian answer.

:pause:

OK! Patreon!

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Smuggling Run.’

Didn’t I put up “Smuggling Run” run already?  I could have sworn that I had – but it’s not in my files here.  Ah, well.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Changes in Taste.’

As “Changes In Taste” suggests, it must really suck in the modern world if your self-identity is esoterically dependent on humanity’s collective vision of you.  No wonder most contemporary fantasy is so gritty, really.  Nobody’s even taking the trouble to give them any metaphysical aspirin.

Patreon Microfiction: Alone.

I liked writing “Alone” because, sometimes, really all that you can ever say about something can be said in 100 words. This was one of those times. At least for me. Your mileage may vary.

Microfiction: “Billions and Billions.”

Billions and Billions” demonstrates why you should always ask about the fine details.  Also, the importance of remembering that not everything’s a nihilist.  Many fictional nihilists make this mistake, honestly.
