Alas, one of the fun places I used to play on the internet, Ficlets, run by AOL has been wiped out since AOL appears to no longer want to play with it. Fortnately one of the Ficlets developers managed to save the short, short stories stored on there before it dissappeared from cyberspace for good. So I am able to retrieve my few bits and peices from it.
The fascinating thing about Ficlets was you either started or continued someone else's short peice of work and all you were allowed were a total of 1024 characters including spaces. And some of them made fascinating reading as you browsed through them.
Anyway, since I'm bored and I have some free time allow me to flood you with a few of the ones I liked the most.
