I am happy to have this week’s Tuesdaytales Judgemasters take over:
Margaret C McNulty
Writer of historical romance and Greek myths reinvented,
Marvel lover & flash fictioneer. Don’t just follow – say hello!
“This one spoke to me in its vivid imagery of the Negatives world against the color world. Megan makes the girl’s choice all the more poignant when rendered against the stark world she lives in and the world she believes exists on the other side of the portal. Is the new world all that she hoped for? The reader is left to ponder the girl’s fate.”
“Don’t even think it.” Her mother shook her head, grey tears snaking down white cheeks. “Your father…Please, I can’t lose you too.”
Still she watched, hands pressed to the portal. Still she dreamed. Watched films beamed from The Other World.
“Come…” The voice came in a dream, kindly, almost affable. “Come to me.”
She left a grey rose on her black pillow.
HONORABLE MENTIONS!Stacy’s use of language brought a Victorian feel to her story that reflected the picture well. I enjoyed seeing the secret word used not just as a descriptor but also as the crux of her indecision about the world that “affable” represents.Oh the poor misunderstood succubus. This one intrigued me in part because I didn’t see where it was going. Have we ever truly thought about her side of the story? It almost made me feel sorry for her trapped in this life – almost.Our one poem stood out in how it carried me along. How often do people use an affable facade to hide who they truly are? But of course in the end a lie will always be undone by something.——————————————————————————————————–Everyone spread the word of @Charitygirlblog , @phoenixlavan, @LupusAnthropos, @Rowanwolf66and @sammyjwebb for her awesome judgemastery!
