Week Two: “Letters” – The Stories

We have another pair of flash tales this week!

First, Rose joins us again with her aptly titled story A Letter.

Second, I (*dramatic gasp*) contribute Parthian Shot, an idea that has been bouncing around my head for a while. It’s rough, unedited, and not very good, but it is a letter of sorts. If the question “isn’t that cheating?” is on the tip of your tongue, I should probably let you know that the answer is “yes!”

Finally, it’s a late entry, but Crognus at the Digital Webbing Forums gives us one heck of a pink slip.

  1. This is probably a really stupid question, Evan, but where’s your story?

    • Clicky on “Parthian Shot” – You should see a hyperlink on mouseover. Let me know if you don’t! 🙂

    • Very nice to see Emmaline again, and to get more of her backstory! I do hope you go through with your NaNo book–I’d love to read it! Thanks for taking part again, Rose! 🙂

  2. Yay, my story made it! Oh, by the way, I really think something needs to be done about the links not being a different color. Like Rose, I was highly confused until I read the comments. Most people aren’t going to hover their mouse over all the text to see if it’s a link.
