| Lord Darling 11/29/10 . chapter 1
Inspired! Love the 'laughing/funerals' one- deliciously unsettling.
| A Kiss in the Dreamhouse 8/13/09 . chapter 1
A collection of funny, sad, thoughtful 6 word stories. Each was really interesting. I loved this!
| Midnight Adrenaline 1/4/09 . chapter 1
This one "Adam’s not gonna jump. He’s too" simply stumped me. This one "Oops! Sorry, daddy. Wrong wishbone. Daddy?" is very good too.
| GottaLoveZach 5/13/08 . chapter 2
Wow, you're really good. Some of these were really touching. I also like your humor; it's very ironic.
| Kumquat21 3/22/08 . chapter 2
Lovely! You're good with horror. I do find when you put them all together in a row like this, one is less likely to take the time to understand each one . . . Your words are excellent, but the formatting is slightly bothering. It's just mood-killing to see a very creepy one, then a very funny one.

He wished for peace. Everyone died.
I absolutely love that line, or well, story I suppose. Nice job.

These were some of the best amateur writing I've read, no kidding. Each one tells just enough of a story to be compelling and leave the reader wanting more (in a good way), as good fiction does. My favorites:
Careful. The trees have tasted blood.
Selling used wishes: only unwished twice. (*Love* this one!)
The painting screamed. They shot it.
She entered the world a murderer.
He aimed to please. And fired.
He wished for peace. Everyone died.
The town disappeared. It never died.
There's only one I didn't understand, and it seems very dark: "Oops! Sorry, daddy. Wrong wishbone. Daddy?" Did the child pull a trigger on a gun, or what? Or is it meant to be ambiguous?
Anyway, do you mind if I use a couple of these lines in longer stories? They're very inspirational, and of course, I'd give credit to you for the line and the inspiration. If you'd rather not, I understand. I just love these stories!
| Liviania 11/28/07 . chapter 2
Interesting idea - I think the ones in the first chapter are more effective. Horror really lends itself to the format, because the most terrifying things are those you imagine yourself.
| Fractured Illusion 7/26/07 . chapter 2
I am really fascinated with this style. There is a whole lot of wit put into those six word stories! I prefered the first chapter to this one though, I have to say, but both as impressive and unique! I could list all those that I particularly like, but really, that's doesn't say anything :/
Keep it up!
| anonymously-me 6/29/07 . chapter 2
My compliemts to your muse and internal editor. It's really wonderful to find such a talented writer. *adds to favorite authors*
| ecwix 6/18/07 . chapter 2
I like these in the same why I like nice, short poetry, they tell so much in so little and let the reader build stories himself (or herself). :)
| C.Sabbadin 6/9/07 . chapter 1
If I’m lying, may God strike
Maybe you should have added a dash (-) as in "If I'm lying, may God-"
Other than that this has been...interesting. I'm not particularly used to the six word style so I can't say I like it but it is definitely interesting.

Stop bleeding on my good couch!
Red meat doesn’t kill. Green does.
Prosthetics can replace anything. Souls, even.
My mom? Pretty nice, if crunchy. (What is with you and cannibalism? 0_o)
Download a New Heritage: Only $19.95!
Painful? Never. We paralyze our victims. (Probably my absolute favorite off this list.)
“…heard of decency?” “In a textbook.”
“You ate my planet!” “Temporary inconvenience.”
| NeptuneShelly 5/10/07 . chapter 1
This is your third posted story that I have read and I must say...you are a consistently brilliant writer. BRILLIANT!
that's really all there is to say
p.s. (actually, there is something else to say...i would love a review)
| Burnt Bread 2/24/07 . chapter 1
I think the first few are considerably better than the last few. It may have worked better if you didn't write so many - quality over quantity, y'know.
Very appropriate title for these stories as the feeling of reading them can be aliked to watching images scroll by on an old slideshow projector.
And this is probably one of the more original things I've read in a while so I'm obligated to favourite it.
