We have a tie for the month of August - two very worthy stories (obviously) from Mouse and chopper. Congratulations to you both for getting this far!

The stories in question, in the order in which they were posted:

***​



Death by Mouse by Mouse​

A
life here​

is governed by​

a clOckwork mOuse​

who runs on the edges of​

our world. We​

live when he​

does. We move when​

he does. And when the key​

stops turning that’s it. Game over.​

Your mouse is old. He’s getting​

rusty. His wheels need oiling.​

His gears stick and his teeth​

are worn. Your time is almost​

up. Do you hear it?​

Tick

......tock​

tick​

.....tock​

tick​

.....tock
tick...​

***​

Moebius, or, how to avoid an Extinction Level Event for the (n=n+1)th time by chopper​

...still time.​

Here, grab these – ignore the skies. Come with me. Attach them to the terminals here – and then over there.​

We'll skip back: avoid it completely. Fifty years should do it; we'll be dead when it happens again.​

No, but it helps us. And then we can find a way...​

Standby... Initiate!​

Yes! – wait, we're still here! We haven't gone back far enough!​

Don't panic, I'll solve this, there's still time.​

Here, grab these -​

EDIT: I have no idea why the copy-and-paste is screwing so royally with Mouse's story, so my apologies, but to view it as it should be viewed, go here: http://www.sffchronicles.co.uk/forum/1417602-post36.html
