Stopping by Annex One on a Snowy Evening
By Robert F. Rost
Whose tracks these are I think I know;
The Skin Horse folk who come and go
By dint of effort I’ll make clear
These mixed impressions in the snow.
Sweetheart’s pawprints do appear
In triplicate she holds so dear.
U.N.I.T.Y.’s step is hard to fake;
A bound, a skid, a spin, a smear.
Tip’s Manolo Blahniks make
Well-spaced triangles on the flakes.
The only other track’s the deep
Depression of Moustachio’s wake.
These tracks of Skin Horse folk won’t keep.
But I have no cause to weep.
I’ll read Skin Horse 6 before I sleep,
I’ll read Skin Horse 6 before I sleep.
Happy Solstice everyone!
Frost reading the original was just on my news feed, so I read this version in his voice: Very cool.
So I wonder which one of the Sparks will respond by telling her, “OK, you’re a cab!”? o_O
Me—missing this skimming down completely the first time ’round.
…her timeline is now slightly more confusing than I thought it was. Only slightly mind you.
My avatar is disappointing me. Why does she need a cab when she has wings?
She doesn’t know how to consciously use them, and she just crushed her own car, closing a temporal loop.
The innocent bystander might have a fair amount reality blindness. She’s never been that impressed with the inherent weirdness of any of the situations she’s blundered into. She probably just hasn’t noticed that she’s a dragon. Will she ever?
I hope she decides to join skin horse, she’s got a similar skill set as Nick
Well that answers that question.
She can talk!
I like that everyone there simply accepts that the dragon is the innocent bystander, even though none of them were there when it happened. (Walske, I’m sure, is bitterly disappointed that nobody’s going to say that’s impossible.)
“Will someone call me a cab?” Okay, you’re a cab.
The Dragon is cute.
How can something as large as a Dragon be cute?
Drawing cute is definitely a part of this comic artist’s skillset.
How can a dragon *not* be cute? Dragons are always cute!
I think, whatever contest you’re in, whoever ends up with the reward of being a goddamn Dragon aught to be considered the winner no matter what.
“But, but I demonstrably shot more baskets?”
“Yes, but I have wings and a tail and inspire childhood wonderment now.”
“Well damn, you’re right.”
Yeah I kinda want a minute with that irradiation machine. And a shrink ray for convenience’s sake, ‘course.
The irradiation machine is a device of the RNG gods: It’s results are unpredictable. It might turn you into a silverfish.
I’mo need a an enlarger ray, a probability distortion device, and maybe a time machine too, then.
Did the doomsday device move them back in time? The empty cooler, the crushed car…
Or not that device… who do we know with access to time travel, and a black bird?
Wait. So they’ve *all* travelled back in time? Is that how the Dane escaped? He didn’t but they all were sent before he was trapped?
Any earlier reference to the black feather?
Why is she heading out to her car, when it was crushed a week ago?
It’s a rental.
Oh, right. Duh.
Causal loop. Now why her past self appeared to find the crushed car and start the whole “search for temporal anomalies department” loop in the first place.
