    Waking up to a joint win was a bit of a surprise for me and all. Thanks for all the votes, especially them last-minute ones.

    Well done Alien! There was no way this week was going to be about anything but that car in space <grin> So I'm happy enough with that choice of Starman and I'm not going to put forward a topic for myself.

    Commander Pseudonym has never won before. I guess Simon will have to nudge them in the ribs to remind them that they have to come up with a topic for this week. I'm sure Pseudonym will have time to perform that simple task after he's hairsprayed his elaborate combover, and before he sits down in front of Fox News to see what he can base his outrageous Tweets on.

    So, I wake up to see the drabble result and wonder what would have happened if one more person had voted (*cough*for me*cough*).

    But anywho ...

    Yesterday, I watched a replay of the Falcon Heavy launch. The two rockets landing back down was absolutely the most impressive thing I have seen. I hope we never get to a point where we take it for granted. So my one-third of the topic is ...


    After getting replies from Frank and Pseudonym they are going with my choice (and no bribery or sexual favours were necessary ... yet ...)

    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 ...

    It's What Could Have Happened If The Car Had Ran Out Of Power

    Jeremy slowly gains consciousness. His eyes feel too big for their sockets. What the hell happened? He keeps his eyes shut for fear of the bright light he glimpsed on a tentative try to open them. Someone must've slipped him a Mickey last night at the party.

    It takes an effort to lift his arm to rub his head, but his gloved hand is stopped before reaching his temple. He's wearing a helmet.

    That wakes him up. He stares wide-eyed at the starry panorama. Floating in space in a car, he reads the message "Don't give my cars bad reviews!"

    Title:- Super Hero Madness

    Super Heroes, who needs Super Heroes.
    We had Superman, Incredible Hulk, Tarzan, Spider-Man, Rocket Man, Stringfellow Hawke, Michael Knight and the Fantastic Four.
    But Starman, who thought of that original name, Simoof.
    That must go down as one of the worst, original and most boring names in history.
    Even goes underneath, Skiprat, Kowman, Haircut Man.
    What has the Universe come too when we cant have a good name for a super hero.
    Or have we gone back to the stone age where Winnard comes from.
    Least they can think of decent super heroes.
    So we need some inspirational drabble titles.

    Title: I would've got away with it if it wasn't for those pesky South African immigrants and their 'innovation'...

    I wanted to participate,
    Because the shows are often great.
    Well, 'great' is perhaps not the word,
    I should use 'adequate' or 'turd'.
    Especially when true to taste,
    They start discussing Simoof' face.
    And violent retching soon begins,
    To fill up our cockpit bins.
    But this week I forget to check,
    The theme, the style, I thought 'aw heck'
    'I'll blag it, they will never know'
    'I'll have it read out on the show'
    Alas I forgot that golden rule,
    When trying to take old Kow to school,
    Is never when submitting a drabble,
    About your ignorance should you babble.

    Incase any drabblers are waiting for the other 2/3rds of topics they are not going to arrive.

    MR P and Frank have decided that Alien's topic is a good choice for this week and therefore the topic is just STARMAN

    Starman II: An Ox Tale

    I was born with the buffalo,
    I said it before
    But I guess nobody wanted to know
    My mother died young
    Poachers shot her through the brain with a sniper's gun

    When I was two my dad died too
    What's a hairy ox supposed to do?

    So I signed up with SpaceX
    They promised me grass and copious sex

    But they called me Elon Musk Ox and put me in a car
    Stuck me on a rocket and shot me to the stars
    I'll go down in history as Starman Two
    Don't care, wish I had been born a Gnu

    (inspiration: Ice-T

    VALIS - not for the contest, not a Drabble

    There's a car, man! floating in the sky
    I'd like to go and see it
    This whole thing just blows my mind

    There's a car, man! floating in the sky
    Elon Musk has gone and shown us
    That spaceflight is all worthwhile

    let the children loose it
    let the children boost it
    let all the children boogie

    I had'ta write something so I picked on you
    Hey that's far out so you saw it too
    Switch on your PC we may pick it up on YouTube too

    Look out my window I can see his light
    He is a sparkly funky satellite
    My eyes are poppin'
    That's some hazy cosmic jive

    Shartman - David Pooie

    Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low
    My Ar$e was red it was all aglow
    some scat was laying around, some got on my sheets it stinks
    Then the loud sound did lift my towel
    blew out like a sausage deep in skiprats bowel
    That weren't no dry fart. that was liquid runny shart

    There's a shartman stinking up the loo
    He'd like to push a solid
    But it's only slimy goo
    There's a shartman spraying up his back
    He knows he shouldn't trust it
    Cause it's running down his crack

    He told us:

    Midden smells...

    One Small Step For A Man ...

    Floating serenely past the blue dot, the ship had its canopy open. There were some dings and scratches where rocks had pelted it over the thousands of years it had been in space. The aliens wondered why it was there. It was obviously not wanted by the creatures that had put it there, and the pilot had been frozen before being put in the cold vacuum of space.

    Miraculously the pilot was still alive, and even though he couldn't open his space suit, faint echos of words could be heard.

    "Damn you Allen of Preston, I am not bloody PIGFART!"

    Title: “VAN-TAY-OON Odyssey” (Part one)
    By Fletch – Aged 7 and ¾
    Vingetetun to Major Gen.
    Vingetetun to Major Gen.
    I’m here with Cecil, better put my Remlock on
    Vingetetun to Major Gen. (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
    He’s pressing buttons, don’t know what’s gone wrong? (five, four, three)
    Checking targets, hope that Alvin is with you?
    This is Major Gen. to Vingetetun
    You have permission to engage
    And GalNet wants to know what colour socks you wear.
    Now it’s time to kill some Thargoids if you dare.
    This is Vingetetun to Major Gen.
    I’m going to attack…
    Ship’s systems down and nothing will respond.
    And the Thargoids look very different today.

    100 words - End the Drabble here, but for completeness:

    “VAN-TAY-OON Odyssey” (Part two)

    For here,
    Am I sitting in a ‘Conda,
    Far away from home.
    Hutton’s all on fire,
    And there’s nothing I can do.

    <Guitar break> 😊

    Though I’m past one hundred thousand kills
    My ship is very still
    And I think that Cecil really needs to go…
    Tell Lael he loves her very much, she knows
    Major Gen. to Vingetetun
    Your comms are dead, there’s something wrong
    Can you hear me, Vingetetun?
    Can you hear me, Vingetetun?
    Can you hear me, Vingetetun?
    Can you?
    Here am I sitting in my ‘Conda.
    Far away from home.
    Hutton’s all on fire,
    And there’s nothing I can do.

    <Guitar break> 😊

    Link to DB original here if you all wanna sing along?

    P.S. I'm not gonna sing it, i couldn't do it justice....
    So Kow will have to get his Ziggy costume and wig on to do it proper 70's justice

    "What will we do with a drunken sailor?" - An Untrue Pirate Recruitment Story

    The breeze across his cheeks felt peculiar, like a clammy shower curtain touching his skin. He cringed, that sensation was never pleasant, not without the promise of something sensual later. He itched to remove his blindfold.

    "Ready?" a muffled voice said from below.

    "Sure" he replied, not at all certain what he was ready for, "Starfish is ready to see me?"

    "Yes! He loves meeting every man of the Shaftesbury Clan"

    "So he's here?"

    "Behold, you can remove the blindfold"

    Taking down the cloth he started. His escort, legs parted, bare erse imparted.

    "You wish to join?" whistled Starfish McGroin

    Only 8?

    But Galactic Midden has posted his Drabble so that must be the last entry. I'll go launch the poll thread now.

    The second stage of the Drabble contest has deployed. It's too late to enter your Drabble now, but you can always try a re-entry for next week's contest
