Drabble: Is Anybody There?

ladywenham said there was no entries in the Raison D'etre Awards drabble challenge competition. So I did one. The challenge is 'William', who I usually have no desire at all to write about. She said make him interesting:

Is Anybody There? By Bogwitch

The medium shuddered, the beads of her elaborate jet choker clacking as she quivered.

“I am Zubaal,” said a deep, unearthly voice from the woman’s throat, echoing ominously around the parlour.

William watched, fascinated, as mist rose from her open mouth and formed a gnarled figure above the séance. Clawed hands, existent only in dreamy ectoplasm, slashed at the air as the creature snarled and strained to be free.

The ladies fainted.

In the carriage home, his mother gathered her wits together. “My dear William,” she said. “ I do believe I have never seen your father looking so well.”

I hope it fits the requirement.

Thanks, I've always wanted to write a seance.


That would explain a lot!

I also wrote William slash poetry:

Angelus in the night doth pose
His peachy bottom just like a rose
Hung like a donkey I do see
a giant penis all for me

Hah! I knew William's mum had a sense of humour somewhere.


Thanks, he got it from somewhere!

Heh :) I knew there was something unearthly about that hair.

Thanks, sorry for the bizarre excursion into slash and iencouraging Speaker to do the same! Makes us equal now.

Thanks. I hope I captured the era.

So you're saying William has the devil in his genes, while Spike has the devil in his jeans?

Sorry, not much of a joke but I'm tired ;p

Interesting drabble. Interesting poems as well. I tend to do most of my NC17 in poetry myself.

Are you implying I should? :) I didn't think it was bad for having been writing in 20 seconds.

Oh yes, the Victorians were well into their seances weren't they?
Great drabble - love the wit between him and his mother. Lovely :)

I've wanted to write a seance for ages, but writing William never appealed to me. And the wit had to come from somewhere. ;)
