    Oh, The Aggressor Outside is Frightful, But The Fire is so Delightful...

    As skilled translator, Kow'd been begged to calm tensions before Thargoid peace talks.

    He stood.

    "We're Human, you're Goid, Me massive, Haemorrhoid
    Moof's horrific, and limp biscuit, you pistachio!

    Edmund Mahon, Type-9 coming, fumigator, you'll be running
    New career, old career, Oracle's aglow

    Patreus, Hudson, Li Yong-Rui, Elton John
    Hankey, King snake eye, he's The Greatest In The Sky

    Mycoid Virus, Vaccine, Simoof slept with your queen
    Inra bases, Aegis places, sayonara goodbye

    We didn't start the fire
    The docking bays burning, stupid Goids returning
    We didn't start the fire
    No, we didn't light it, but we'll bloody fight it!"

    A Faiytale Of Alien Winning ... pity

    It was Yuletube eve, Kow
    In cubicle three
    Frank, he said to me, buy me another one
    And then he sang a song
    Of Braben's old dream
    I scratched my Asp
    And wrote this drabble anyway.

    I Got an idea
    Came to me in a dream
    I've got a vote
    Or with Hankey, maybe two
    So happy Yuletube
    And vote for me
    I'll write a better drabble
    With another vote or two

    (blah-blah-blah ... skip to the chorus)

    Simoof and Winnard are winning
    Let's not have Midden win again
    So remember to get your votes out
    And make Alien great again

    And so we draw the curtains closed on this week contest. All the good little Drabblers drink their Horlicks and ready themselves for bed, while grumpy auld Frank clumps about his study looking for his glasses he needs for the task of transcribing all the entries into this week's poll.

    Nighty night boys and girls. Entries for this week are now closed

    Old chestnuts boasting of an open fire...

    The incessant wailing of emergency sirens clashed with the warning sounds coming from his distressed and rapidly overloading systems panel.Orange bands of light flickered through the smoke and dust as the ship bucked and twisted beneath him,and he hastily juggled the braking thruster,praying that his exposed landing gear had survived the blast that came from below as a pressure seal gave on a refuelling tank and an expanding cloud of debris rattled against the hardened hull,adding to the cacophony.Landing clumsily,the evacuees scrambled aboard,wild eyed,and dishevelled and he prepared to run the gauntlet again.

    Starfish Icarus

    The g-Class blazed through my canopy filters making the holo-displays hard to read. I waited a few serene moments, powerless as the Thargoid scanned my ship. Then... nothing.

    The alien marauder was discoloured and slightly askew. I saw my escape plan and plunged head-first into the corona.

    Sparks flew across the cockpit as my heat-sinks failed, heat-management systems dumped unwanted energy into low priority systems to keep the ship alive. I spun and looked at my pursuer: brown and withered, scales flaking from its hull as it died.

    "So," I mused, spinning up the hyperdrive, "Thargoids cook faster than Cobras."

    just before I drop asleep from exhaustion I've stoked the fire some more. Since no votes had been cast in this week's competition I've added Phong and Edith the hutt to the drabble poll. If anyone objects, send me a DM and a 5 and I'll gladly remove a couple of drabbles from the contest to keep the entries at 10.

  8. #2273
    Oi! Simoof! What egregious mischievous is this!!??!?!?

  9. #2274
    congratulations, EDITH!!

    Now we should allow an open theme while we wait for a theme from Edith, get your drabbles in...

  10. #2275
    Thank you Mr Kow and all those who kindly voted for my drabble The theme is: New Year's Resolutions.

  11. #2276
    Congratulations Edith_The_Hutt!!!
    And this weeks topic:
    "New Years Resolutions"

    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 and does have feelings)
    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
    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 ...

    Fat, Hop and clarity : A story of morals, morons and misogyny...

    Simoof sat with his list in hand.
    He'd made a few resolutions for the new year.
    But the biggest one was he was going to do more for charity
    He'd entered himself for the Winnard's Hole marathon and he was looking for people to take part.
    'I'm running a marathon for charity' he announced to Psykokow 'wanna take part with me?'
    'I'm not as fit as I was' Said Psykokow 'besides I can't really be bothered'
    'awww come on it's for disabled, blind kids with bowel cancer'
    Psykokow paused 'fair enough count me in I recon I can beat them'

    Cmdr pseudonym - Warning: Do not exceed maximum dose....

    'I can't feel my willy' Skiprat moaned at the doctor
    'well that's because we amputated both your arms you're lucky to be alive at all'
    'I made a new years resolution not to get infatuated with any more secretive girls'
    'Well luckily for you they caught her'
    'where have they put her?
    the doctor gave a chuckle 'Infatuation, idiot'
    'I'm not asian, and why have you stuck her in fat?'
    'well she's been classified as highly dangerous. Turns out she's a sexbot hacked for 210 cycles a minute'
    'I thought I was flapping a bit fast in the spastic eagle'

    The Dark

    Midnight, finally...
    He brought up his target screen and scanned for new contacts…
    Not there ‘Damn!’
    His ship systems started shutting down abandoning him and his ship to the deep black and cold.
    He drifted..
    Hours passed, he giggled ‘maybe this year would hold more luck for him than the last.’
    His breath misted as he laughed thinking of his resolutions made last year.
    ‘I won’t make any more resolutions, ever! I’m perfect as is’
    The year had other ideas.
    Still Drifting…
    A warm blanket of hypothermia softly cuddled him, he smiled
    It was the first resolution he’d ever kept.
