My Favorite Short Stories of 2017 – May
Last year’s retrospective of erotic micro-fiction continues. I already shared with you all my favorites for the months of January, February, March, and April. It’s time to move on to the month of May so follow along and discover my personal choices along the way.
The first piece is the following:
“Snake, did you just…?”
“You’re supposed to be a super soldier. Don’t you have anything better to do?”
“Love can bloom when one least expects, Otacon.”
“I’m not sure jerking off inside a locker room counts as love. What’s gotten into you?”
Meanwhile, halfway across the world, Dr. Naomi Hunter laughed out loud.
Why I like it:
Another video game choice. Written on May 16th, Snake Beater is quite a fun romp through and through. The Metal Gear series is filled with outlandish scenarios so something like this wouldn’t actually be so out of the left field if one thinks about it. Upon re-reading my previous writings, this one made me laugh on the spot so I ended up selecting it.
The second piece is the following:
With her first snap, my inhibitions disappeared.
With her second snap, my clothes disappeared.
With her third snap, my ability to walk in two legs disappeared.
With her fifth snap, my free will disappeared.
What do you mean I forgot the fourth one? I really have no recollection of what you’re talking abo…
Why I like it:
Disappearance was written on May 21st. My first 55-words stories used “I” a lot. It’s an impersonal “I”, not really meant to represent me for real. As I kept on producing these, I eventually moved away from the stylistic device to more general approaches. I was surprised to discover this one again because I honestly had no recollection of ever writing it and I suppose it reminds me of bygone days in a way. IThat was the primary reason that led me to choose it to be a part of today’s post.
The third (and last) piece is the following:
There’s something wrong in Charlene’s list. Can you find out what it is?
– whole wheat bread;
– turkey breasts;
– a hypnotized slave for the week;
– brown rice;
– red-wine vinegar;
– frozen broccoli;
– black beans;
– low-fat milk;
The correct answer is “eggs”. She really hates them. What were you thinking, huh?
Why I like it:
Written on May 30th, Groceries is another unconventional piece and I really like telling stories in ways like that. It was always going to be a part of my selections no matter what. It turned out to be this one and that’s pretty much the gist of it.
What about you? Do you have any favorites you would like to share with me? Use this link as a reminder of all I’ve produced in March 2017 and let me know your thoughts in the comments. No observation will go unanswered. Looking forward to hearing from you.
If you like Spell… B-O-U-N-D and my efforts and wish to see them both grow, please consider:
Thank you in advance.
