PetraPan The Barbie with brains 2 :open_book:

I stilled myself, struggling to present a calm face to this man who, just hours before, I was sure was in love with me. What had I done, what had I discovered, to turn this gentle lover into the stranger whose cold-steel eyes glared at me with an intensity that made me catch my breath?

Ah, the classic Gothic novel, there it is: the gloomy mansion, the Byronic hero (ready to turn villain at the drop of a hat) and the trembling heroine (who can’t quite figure out the mansion’s floor plan). @emilywlove perfectly worked out the contradictions and impossibilities of the genre. Congratulations!

We imagined the scene, and we shuddered.

No one thought that this year could get any worse. That was until I watched my son open his presents.

@RTGraver’s Christmas story parody reassures us that Santa is real – and reminds us once again that everything we enjoy is made with lead or slave labor, often both.

Do-yun stood in the gas station, looking at the limited selection of ramen. If he could, he’d get more food somewhere else- anywhere else, but this town only had one diner and the food looked like toxic waste dumped in grease.

A Korean person in Nevada, tasked with hunting down a bug-eyed monster and forever distracted by his American co-worker who seems to be able to read his mind. Things get confusing fast in @Bizarre.Dais’ sci-fi parody.

Keep on writing!
