Good story and nifty accent, Goldmund.

Although there's no audio, you can read my flash "Aquarium," now up on the Drunk Monkeys site. And just imagine my accent as you read.

Lol. Great story!
I read it with an imaginary New York accent.
Was that right?

Thanks, Lillie. I actually grew up in the Midwest, so I don't sound at all Brooklyn.

Well, your location is deceptive! But it doesn't matter. I tried to imagine a New York accent, but even in my head it ended up sounding like Barnsley.

Forgive me my cheekiness, but I wonder if this is what Count Dracula hoped to sound like when he went on his visit to London?

If so, I can COMPLETELY understand the appeal!

You are too generous!

Dracula? As Slav population consists of 50% vampires and 50% werewolves, you must be right... ;-)

Haha, this was fun! The mishaps of this scientist would be a great idea for an animated cartoon. Write more stories about the duo and release as a book.

"The Traveling Fair" is up today at Every Day Fiction. This was a Shock Totem contest story and a 2011 W1S1 story.

I always thought most werewolves were French.

Cool, I didn't even realize that one was yours. That was nicely done; it headed somewhere very differently than where I was expecting near the beginning of the story and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Awesome story Sai! I, like, several other people here, didn't realize that was your story in DSF today!

Congrats Alex! What a fun tale!

Just read Traveling Fair, Alex. I've never doubted that the performing arts staved off dragons and all manner of wickedness.

Loved it. When's the next story out? Also this line?: 'A fool and his shard are easily parted.' Heh.

And congratulations, Michael, as well.
