Drabble Dare #7: RESULTS!!!

Welcome to this week's drabble results!!!

Because I am ME, and it is at my discretion (or digression, as the case may be), I am posting TWO winners today... One because it was perfect to the original meaning of the painting... shows a knowledge of the mythology and tells the tale that is supposed to go...

“Don’t look down son, keep your eyes above the horizon.  There is no need to fear, just follow my lead.  Nothing can hold us down on this earth, we will soar far above all others.  I will be a leader of men.  Stay by my side and remember what I have told you.”

My father mistakes my resentment as trepidation.  I focus on the horizon to avoid his gaze, not in agreement of his words.  He means to hold me back from my true destiny with his pithy rules.  I shall show him who is the true leader of men.

And the OTHER because it shows the perfect spirit of the Tart, and the Naked World Domination plans *tee hee*

Don’t mind me; I’m just hiding in your bushes, looking in your windows. I like what you’ve done with the curtains, very fluttery. Why do you insist on baking at eleven-‘o-clock, shouldn’t that be done in the morning? I don’t mind, really, your new apron hardly does its job of protecting your delicate bits.

I am so glad a nudist moved into the neighborhood, it was so boring here before; nothing to look at but wrinkly men and old women past their prime.

Oops, was that a branch I just broke?

“Who are you?!”

 “Just your friendly neighborhood Peeping Tom?”

So congratulations, ladies!  Fabulous drabbles!

Congratulations, you guys! Loved both drabbles - both captured the spirit of the picture but in such different ways :)

Natasha said...

They are both fantastic drabbles. Congratulations, both.

Erin said...

That's amazing, the nudist one, I mean.

Hart Johnson said...

teehee--I love them both, though the spirit behind them IS pretty darned different.

I am so honored that you like my story. :-)

I like the other one too, great use of the mythology involved.
