My flash story 'The Marionette Manipulator & The Headless Bride' is up at http://52stitches.blogspot.com/2009/03/marionette-manipulator-headless-bride.html. I'd love it if any of you have the time to read it. hiding

Argh - my brain hurts. TBH, it's taking me a while for me to figure out what's going on - I didn't absorb the line where Bert said he would marry Liz if she lost her head on the first read. I'm still not sure what that means, actually. She decapitated herself because of this promise, then found he didn't mean it, so she chopped his head off, but he played dead, so she went to get the puppeteer to reanimate him, was overjoyed to see him alive, dropped her head, died, then was made into a puppet by Reginald, whom she previously found ugly, but is now his lover in a necrophiliac relationship? Is that right?

Sorry Catherine, I don't get it. I want to like it, and I like some aspects of it, but I don't understand what it's about. It's probably just me being thick, I reckon. scratch Sometimes this happens to me. I'll read something in the morning, not get it, but read it again in the afternoon and it makes perfect sense to me.

BTW, just a little thing, but 'mute point' should be 'moot point'.

Hi Ed, don't apologise at all. Yep, I've already noted the 'moot point/mute point' mistake and emailed the editor.

I thought the 'mute point' was intentional, since they were discussing how she could talk.

I'm going to say that yes it was, because it makes me seem witty and intelligent.  undecided
