October Games
 
It was simple: hang a mirror on the dead tree, hold hands, and chant. It was five tries before we could do it without laughing. Then the silence was eerie, and we were glad to hear the wind rustle the dry cornstalks.
 
Until Mary screamed. And we realized too late that hadn't been the wind.

Overachiever:

@doctormikereddy: I loved this twist on The Wizard of Oz. Great tale.


"Not Oz Anymore"


Oz had changed since Dorothy had last left. The scarecrow's benevolent dictatorship had been overthrown by the One Eyed Man is King, but the Cyclops had eventually lost the people's support when dust storms from the edges of Oz had eaten into the safer lands.

Dorothy rolled up her sleeves. "Toto, we've lots to do!"
 
Here are the badges. Wear them proudly!

“Good sweetness, Zip, will you hurry up?”
“I’m trying, Fanny, but I don’t know what to bring with me.”
“Pixiesticks! Zip, we’re just going on a blog tour. Why are you putting all those cat treats in there?”
“Just in case there are cats, Fanny. Remember what happened the last time there was a cat?”
“Don’t remind me of that Cat-astrophy.”
“Fanny, why are you laughing?”
“I’m not laughing, Zip… ok, I’m laughing. I can’t help it. You should have seen the look on your face when you were cornered by that cat.”
“Shhh… Fanny, I think there are kids listening.”
“Where? Zip, I don’t see anyone.”
“I thought I heard a child. They’re very sneaky you know, always trying to catch us with their fairy traps.”
“I think your imagination is working overtime, Zip. Now what else have you got in your bag… Peanuts and Popcorn! ZIP! What are you doing with all those copies of our book?”
