Fiancé’, The Plushie
to my surprise one evening, I was wakened from my slumber, not
from the expected ‘clumpf-clumpf-clumpf-clumpf’ sounds of my
fiancé’s hooves, but rather the soft ‘paft-paft’ of...
fluffy plushie feet?!?
“Argon! What happened to you!?”
a display that could only be called ‘disgustingly cute’,
Argon squeaked, “Aahh... there was this...”
Argon flapped his plushie-fluffy dragon wings, “Ceralor
Argon flapped his wings in mild irritation.
was turning everyone into plushies!
I got ‘drag-ed’ into it.. heh heh...”
I wasn’t laughing.
“Mavra, you’re too serious, relax!
I have it on very good word that it’s only
“Ok,” I said, crossing my arms, “what in this
context is ‘temporary’?
Years, or even days does not count.”
“Not even that long,” he squeaked in reply.
“It will only be overnight.”
I was still dubious but willing to go along... for now.
Together we snugged in bed, Argon wiggling his cute little
plushie eyebrows at me.
“Ok, why are you looking so smug?” I asked.
“Well,” he squeaked again, “you can tell folks
you’re sleeping with me without them raising eyebrows!”
get stuffed, Argon.”
Dissolved Into Flubber!
Bodhi, local lemur whose precise origins are unknown, was
found dissolved in the park flubber the other day.
Morticon admitted he was conducting experiments involving
flubber and lemurs with Bodhi until something went
"terribly wrong. I don't know how he became pure
flubber and escaped the lab. He was never supposed to
leave like that. In fact, he was never supposed to leave
ever again", Morticon said coolly.
When Suri, local lemur, witnessed Bodhi's death (reminiscent
of the Wizard of Oz) she became drained of her lemur-ness,
becoming a Velociraptor as a result. Suri was
unavailable for comment, but can be seen in the park stalking,
eating, and growling.
To The Doctor (?)
The Rose garden was the scene of a psychoanalytical nightmare
this pas week as Arkikane, homemade radio/phone set out his
shingle to practice. Unfortunately there wasn’t anyone to
practice on until Rown, local Centaur and SpinDizzy regular
(me heh!), decided to play with the radio/phone.
The doctor asked what he wanted to speak about but Rown was
too busy trying to find the person in the box to answer.
Eventually he dropped a screwdriver down into the swirling
mass inside and Doctor Arkikane was forced to reform into
Arkitaur, local SpinDizzy regular and some sort of Centaur…
I think. :-p
A duality of minds took place and soon he was
changing back and forth from Arkitaur to Arkikane until it
reached a point where it needed to psychoanalyze itself. At
that point the homemaderadio/phone disappeared and didn’t
return. Speculation is that Arkitaur and Arkikane either
cancelled each other out or they went golfing. Another theory
is that Arkitaur refused to pay his bill and Arkikane, in
retaliation, convinced Arkitaur that he didn’t really exist
and then looted his belongings. No one is quite sure though.

Procedures for Submitting Articles
||Submitting a story
or artwork for @Action News is easy! Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org,
or qmail or page Argon about it.
Most any type of story or article will be accepted.
Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or
flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of
SpinDizzy. Things that occur in public areas are fair
game. The things reported don't have to have actually
happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but
make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of
interaction that we have. These are pretty broad
guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
