Drabble of the Week #35: Customer Service?

First up, my apologies for the delayed post – the Drabble of the Week award got delayed in the post…

A big congratulations to Bryan Thomas on his Customer Service? drabble. Not only is it a brilliant drabble, it was also his 100th drabble posted to Drablr. So a double congratulations are in order. Bryan is now our 5th author to post their 100th drabble…though I think we’ll be seeing more people joining them soon.

Drabble of the Week #34: A Living Together

This weeks Drabble of the Week goes again to Horrorshow for A Living Together. This is a…well…it’s actually quite a disturbing drabble to tell the truth. Don’t read it if you’re somewhat squeamish. For all its grotesqueness, it is a great piece of flash fiction. Congratulations Horrorshow!

Drabble of the Week #32: Ladybug

Another week, and another Drabble of the Week for Horrorshow – that’s four in a row! If you think this may be getting a little boring, think again. That’s four excellent drabbles, each worthy of every vote cast. It was a close one though as Horrorshow’s Ladybug only beat Kate Gowers’ Music Hath Charms…or not by twelve votes to eleven.

Surely Horrorshow can’t make it for a fifth week? Perhaps Kate, third place Brandon Sutton (Acronyms: All Part of a Balanced Breakfast), or one of our other excellent drablrs can take next weeks award.

Drabble of the Week #31: The Grand Ecdysis Ball

It seems Horrorshow is on a roll at the moment; winning Drabble of the Week for the third time in a row!

This time however, it’s an outright win with the drabble The Grand Ecdysis Ball. A nice but somewhat gross drabble, if you know what ecdysis means! Congratulations Horrorshow, can you make it four in a row?

Drabble of the Week #30: Melted Plastic Faces

This weeks Drabble of the Week was a tricky one to award. There were three excellent drabbles in the running, two from  Horrorshow and one from Samantha Bishop. All three are great reads, each receiving a good number of votes and comments, however, I’ve decided to give this weeks award to Melted Plastic Faces by Horrorshow. This story will certainly send a chill down your spine.

3 Wishes by Samantha Bishop was a worthy runner-up along with Horrorshow’s other drabble, Aokigahara (青木ヶ原), which has an interesting topic that’s worth researching the subject of the Suicide Forest (see the comments). I recommend you read them both.

Drabble of the Week #28: CREATE FUNCTION Consciousness

For the second week in a row we have a tie between Drew Martyn and Kate Gowers. This week however I’m unable to decide between the two drabbles, so I’m going to fall back to letting the social likes decide the winner. Currently with fifthteen Facebooks likes a three Tweets, Kate’s CREATE FUNCTION Consciousness takes the Drabble of the Week award.

Drabble of the Week #27: Visitors

Drabble of the Week was a tough one this time round. Both Drew Martyn’s and Kate Gowers’ drabbles gained the same number of votes and are both excellent 100-word stories, but I’ve decided to give the tie-break to Drew for his “Visitors” drabble.

Not only is Visitors chilling but it made me keep thinking about it, even re-reading it, which is certainly the sign of a great drabble.

Congratulations to Drew.
