Siobhan says: Oh man, to come home and find out your partner/roommate has sold your soul just to "get anything you want." I would've been furious. I'd like my soul, thanks. Fun, unsettling tale.

Siobhan says: I liked the sweet attraction in this tale. He liked the glitter, but she liked him paying attention. And the playful nature of the whole story made me smile.
Siobhan says: I liked the caged-tiger aspect to this tale. For the moment, the Captain is being cordial and cooperative, but the last line reminds us she's biding her time, and could do something dangerous at the least provocation. Fun tale.

Siobhan says: This tale made me laugh out loud...or LOL depending on your perspective. The idea that even the spirits have Facebook and Twitter cracked me up. Especially the S I G H. Sounds like they need a sarcasm font. Great tale.
A… R… E…
The friends crouched closer. This was really happening.
N… T… Y…
“It’s real words. It’s actually working,” Andrea squeaked, her throat tight with shock. She’d always been a skeptic and had been convinced tonight would be a bust. The spirits would either be a no-show or she’d be able to detect someone moving the pointer.
The planchette stopped, the letters on the pad arranged in three rows of six. They needed a little work to make sense but the question was there before them.
“Aren’t you going to ask?”
“Ask what?” Paul was quick to reply. He’d arranged the whole séance.
The pointer swung straight to “No”.
“Is there a heaven?” Jeanette’s father had died recently. She’d been the first person to volunteer to come.
The planchette hesitated and then swerved to the right, stopping stubbornly at a blank place on the board.
“Should I buy stocks in Facebook?” Kent was next. He was a business major.
The next half hour was a washout. The board gave them nothing, the atmosphere growing more and more tense until the planchette spelled out four letters – S… I… G… H… and then continued, the pointer zig-zagging furiously from letter to letter.
But there was something there. A definite message. A communication to the group from the world beyond.
“Ten bands I have seen, one is a lie…” it began.
