    From Jules Verne’s Diary, @TitaniumTi - Great men are often inspired by great books. An author of this renown was surely inspired by most unusual book, indeed!

    Query. Is submarine's allowed?

    Edit: scrap that. I won't use it. Looks like cheating.

    Mosaix, you've told a tale with more than a bit of morality at its core. I loved it!

    Okay, I'm up. Word's word count says 108 words but that's including the asterisks and hyphens. Hand count gives 97.

    Good idea, Perp. :)

    TitaniumTi -- In this compelling fable of the power of imagination, a visionary author is granted permission to behold the future.

    mosaix -- In this witty dialogue we are reminded of the curious fact that those who must work closely together often come into conflict.

    I realise that I made a highlighting error in my story - muddle instead of meddle.

    Red String, @LittleStar = A sympathetic look at a truly Odd Couple. Tugs at the heart strings, while showing some bonds are hard to break.

    After a few days of downtime for aforementioned personal reasons, I've just spent some time reading through the entries so far.

    What can I say?

    I knew lot were good, and I knew you liked a challenge, but you have all done yourselves proud.

    Alex the G and T -- The author of this amusing tirade preferred to raise belly laughs through the use of comic invective.
