Flash Fiction Challenge – Mad Monster Sleep Over

So in this random challenge, I got whodunnit and creature feature, and I let my weirdest impulses take over. Leading to this … ** Mad Monster Sleep Over It was the Swamp Monster that found Doctor Herring’s body in the kitchen. Or at least his torso. It was assumed he’d need it to survive. There were several problems, all of which were tricky indeed. Gathering the suspects, for example. It was a class reunion weekend, if you accepted the meaning of class could be stretched to accommodate a reunion of monsters created both deliberately and accidentally by the old Academy of Psychical Research. Portsmouth. Of course the building had burned down in the great escape of ’75, but there was a spooky mansion down the road that more than fit their needs. Yes, it...

More Random Musical Pulls, Because Why Not?

Just to remind you I’m still alive – writing away, as always – I thought I’d do the five song random shuffle thing, and see if I can apply it to my characters. Let’s go. Botch – Thank God for the Worker Bees This one is a Roan song. Not just because he likes the screamy, aggressive music – although he does – but the repeated line “I’m the human shield” is very much applicable. Although how human is up for debate. Pack A.D. – Haunt You Bit of a toughie to start with, but this feels like a Holden song. Much like Roan, he’d like to believe in an afterlife, just for the possibility of haunting the fuck out of so many people. Modest Mouse – Dashboard This one is problematic...

Even More Stupid Questions With The Infected Cast

Today’s stupid question – If you could live within one fictional universe, what would it be? Roan: Star Trek. Dylan: Um, hmm … tough one. I’m torn between Doctor Who and Harry Potter … let’s go Harry Potter. It’d be great to throw spells around. It’d certainly make doing the laundry a lot easier. Holden: Mad Max. (Why?) I’d be a great killer of warlords. Paris: Ooh … I’m trying to think of a sexy one, and it just brings to mind that there aren’t a lot of sexy alternate worlds, are there? What about Cowboy Bebop? That seems like it’d be fun. Grey: Slap Shot. (Not sure that counts.) Fine, what did Roan pick? Trek? Fine, yeah, I’ll go with him. We can be roommates. Oh, hey, can I be a Klingon? Fiona: Wow, this is a tricky one. How...
