    There are way too many Drabbles this week about animal-manufactured methane <sniff>. I'm calling an end to entries to ensure there are no more

    entries are now closed for this week

    I believe some of that was a metaphor for anthropic methane.

    It seems to have worked.I'm not picking up anything on the radio.Unless the whole thing got cancelled.Or Kow got interdicted by thargs.

    Kow is off this week, so I hosted it. I can't stream to the radio (yet) so it was Twitch only.

    Congratulations to last weeks winner, and THANK YOU to Alien for a steller job on the show. Now available on Itunes and soon on youtube.

    Great show, and I enjoyed Penn and Teller though Simoof spend his night in bed, I then spent the weekend in bed.

    So this weeks theme will be set by Galactic Midden who stole the show, and frankly will span 2 weeks, to allow for a Lavecon weekend no show. So enter as normal OR join us in the lavecon show by going to the other thread.

    You *could* only enter a drabble and not donate, but you won't be happy.
    You *could* enter a drabble *and* donate, and not only would you be happy, but you'd be helping a young person with disabilities play games and have a happier life.

    Basically ... donate, or I'll cut your hair off.

    Eek! Apologies everyone. Winning was so unexpected I never thought to check the results before work. Anyhoo, thinking hat on, what topic shall I choose? How about...

    Dangerous Ties


    Great Tunes to Supercruise to - p.s. have you tried ABRAKA DRABBLE?

    Dangerous Ties it is then


    Well done Galactic Midden.

    If you too want to be a winner, then post your winning story into this very thread.

    The story, or play, or poem, or joke, or whatever type of text you want to enter as long as it's 100 words long... should be based in the Elite Galaxy and be about this current topic "Dangerous Ties"




    And here's the simple rules of the competition.

    1. Drabbles must be 100 words exactly (Excluding the title)
    2. Over-use of-hyphens-to keep your word-count at 100 is very amusing but probably not a great idea.
    3. Keep it as clean as you can to suit the family forum rules here, so no frogs attached to anatomical parts.
    4. Only the first 20 entries are guaranteed a place in the (usually weekly) poll.
    5. 1 entry each, you may write as many drabbles as you want, but it is assumed that your first drabble is your chosen entry unless otherwise advised. But please mark Drabbles that you don't want entered as such.
    6. If your drabble is under or over 100 words you will have a chance to correct it before the poll is erected, at this point, your drabble may be DQ'd if other drabbles are available to take its place.
    7. Drabbles must be set in the Elite Dangerous universe (as loosely as you care to make it).
    8. It should try to meet the theme in some arguable way.
    9. If there is more than one theme you must match at least one, but can gain extra votes if you meet more.
    10. It's all for a bit of fun, so enjoy yourself... Enjoyment is mandatory!
    11. If you win, you get to submit next week's Drabble topic, so make sure you post it by 3pm GMT Monday. Or else chaos will ensue and who knows what will happen...
    12. You must big it up and get the Drabble Show over 100 viewers, that would be amazing.
    13. Every winner can be the owner of up to 1 abrakadrabble mug.
    14. No animals were harmed in the making of this series (Simoof is not an animal)
    15. If we get over 25 entries, the potato will host it nude.*
    16. The Title must also now be under 100 words (not including the title to the title)*
    17. Extra points for Kow-tipping.*
    18. Futuristic Kung Fu is not allowed to question the rules, change the rules or even know what the rules are.

    Sometimes it's difficult to know what constitutes exactly 100 words. Our arbiter is
    www.wordcounter.net
    It doesn't matter if it's right or wrong. Its count is the law.

    So submit your drabbles in reply to this thread, and the first 20 will be guaranteed entry into this weeks poll, and read out on our live Show Friday night.
    Entries close at Random O'clock on Thursday evening (or sometimes if we have 20 entries earlier). All Drabbles submitted up to Friday Afternoon will have a good chance of being read out on the live Drabble readiing show.

    New winners each week now wins a prize ...

    Live shows Friday's 19:00 GMT - 20:00 GMT (approximately)
