Weekend Writing Warriors 9 December 2018 (ER, SF)


“Jefe!”
Krystal’s telepathic voice made Max take notice. He stopped trying to cut the thread and listened.
“You’ll have to put us in the bath, Jefe. This is how you wash off the strands. Then you going to have to give us energy.”
“Whatever you need, Baby, you’ve got it,” Max agreed. He lifted the tiny Krystal in his muscular arms and carried her to the oversized bathtub in Wella’s massage suite. He did the same for Jewel. He lay the two cocooned aliens side by side in the tub. He carefully checked the temperature of the water and began spraying the water from the showerhead over the otherworldly strands encasing the women.

Notes:

Since folks were curious about how Max was going to be able to free his bodyguards from the weird web, this snippet provides the solution to that mystery in the right number of sentences. I enjoy serendipity!
I sort of apologize for my previous rants about Tumblr's ludicrous policy changes. Freedom of speech is an important right, and I think that sometimes people in Western society are so used to having it that they don't realize what a catastrophe it would be if our right to free speech is taken away.
Granted, Tumblr is a private entity, not a government institution. However, they founded themselves on one principle and have turned their backs on the people who helped them become what they are. The talk about the site being rife with child pornographers is a gross exaggeration.
Like any site, such bad actors appear occasionally and should be dealt with accordingly. The porn problem Tumblr was actually having involved spammy porn bots. Nobody wanted those, and Tumblr staff had been asked to deal with the problem by many subscribers, including legitimate independent adult performers.
Tumblr reimagining itself as a pure and pristine site suitable for schoolchildren was not the correct answer to the problem. This action was taken because Yahoo and Verizon want Apple to put Tumblr back in their app store, not because they actually care about exploitation. The issue is more nuanced than their P.R. team has revealed in press releases.

  4. An interesting development. I imagined Frodo wrapped up in the sticky strands of the spider.
