Six Word Stories

Just like back in the LJ days.

  • Write a story in six words.

  • Based off the sixwordstories/smuttysixwordstories comms that were created based on this story from wired in which they asked authors of all genres to write six word stories.

  • Each comment should be in it's entirety, exactly six words.

  • Your comment can contain more than one story. Just number or letter them like tfln.

1. International laws broken. Not my fault.
2. Child genius. Don't try to analyse.
3. Sharp suit. Sharp mind. Sharp knife.
convincingly: (a natural leader)

I'd rally a slightly more robust defense, if I were you.

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-16 08:05 pm (UTC)(link)
It so happens that I am telling the truth.
convincingly: (extremely important)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 08:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Overwhelming. A true tour de force. They'll definitely buy such a tight story.

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-16 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
They encourage you to tell the truth, only when I do I receive reactions such as yours. No wonder I never bother.
convincingly: (generally undisciplined)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 08:24 pm (UTC)(link)
The truth comes with supporting details.
convincingly: (bargained with the harpies)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd start with why you know the law's been broken if you aren't the one who broke it. Personally.

Drops in certain shares.
convincingly: (a natural leader)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 08:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Which some would find likely traceable to you?
trustmeimagenius: (9)

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-16 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't dabble in stocks and shares. Too pedestrian. I am, however, on the board of certain companies which do dabble and so it is worth my while to pay attention.
convincingly: (extremely important)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd lead with that pompous bit.
trustmeimagenius: (3)

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-16 09:11 pm (UTC)(link)
You think that information is pompous?
convincingly: (a natural leader)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 09:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Less the information. More the broader phrasing.
trustmeimagenius: (2)

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-16 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
And how do you think I should have phrased it?
convincingly: (Default)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 09:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Why d'you care?
trustmeimagenius: (3)

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-16 09:37 pm (UTC)(link)
If you don't believe me, how can I expect others to?
convincingly: (generally undisciplined)

[personal profile] convincingly 2016-07-16 09:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Probably can't.

But maybe you'll get lucky.

krmvgivv: (wish i could follow them somehow)


[personal profile] krmvgivv 2016-07-17 02:53 am (UTC)(link)
Yeesh. That's not creepy at all.

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-17 01:46 pm (UTC)(link)
The knife belongs to Butler. One of his preferred items.
krmvgivv: (little white stars that)

[personal profile] krmvgivv 2016-07-17 08:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah but paired with the sharp suit it sounds all homicidal mafia. Or possibly vampire. They're supposed to be snappy dressers, right? Which is pretty surprising for creatures with no reflection.
trustmeimagenius: (3)

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-18 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I believe it's the lack of reflection which causes such care in their dress. It's easier to attract their prey.
krmvgivv: (i told some little white lies)

[personal profile] krmvgivv 2016-07-18 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[Dipper leans forward excitedly.] Yes! And with the vast amount of vampire propaganda on the market, humans have to be flocking to get their throats torn out!

[personal profile] trustmeimagenius 2016-07-19 08:55 am (UTC)(link)
A good third at least. Another third will be looking to go into the hunter role, and the remaining third will continue in their daily lives, thinking it just fiction.
krmvgivv: (ask anyone who knows me)

[personal profile] krmvgivv 2016-07-25 04:27 pm (UTC)(link)
That last one's gonna be more than a third. [Everyone thinks vampires are fiction always.] The bigger danger is their instinctive reactions when they find out they're wrong.
