*Finds door open, slinks in, looks around. Place looks empty. Kitty litter box overflowing, velvet pillows strewn on the floor, graffitti in the form
of bad haikus scribbled on the coffee table.*
"Musta been quite a party", she thinks to herself.
OMG! Is that green thing rolling across the carpet a talking donut?
"Silence!", the talking donut commands. "What is your security clearance? State your business!"
As she obedently begins to dig in her archives for the shameful list of threads she has killed, she notices an approaching army of ninja fleas armed
with pointed stars.
"Please, sirs, I'm *stammers* I'm a threadkiller" (she whispers this last word and hangs her head). "I need help. I swear I didn't mean to
kill them. They looked strong and healthy and able to tolerate opposing points of view so I posted my insights/research and they just keeled over
dead. Fearing for my safety, I quickly scurried over to another thread, lurked for a while and began posting again only to have that thread go into
apoplectic convulsions before entering its death throes."
The donut nods knowingly. "We've heard it all before, sister. There used to be a support group here but they all learned to post successfully and
have gone on to lead something called a 'real life'." Looks to the fleas and says, "Maybe it's something they ordered online?" The fleas
The intruder drops her crumpled list on the floor. "Well now what do I do?", she asks.
The donut and the fleas confer in whispers for a moment. "Have a seat" the donut cordially offers, smoothing his green icing in a semblance of
civility. The fleas promptly stand at attention, sheathing their lethal stars. "We feel confident that our benevolent dictator has not abandoned us
but there are bold upstarts attempting a coup and we can't be too careful". (Nods in the direction of a marmalade and ginger cat menacingly
stalking a bodrul).
Whitewave plops down unceremoniously on the couch, patiently waiting to see if her threadkilling curse has followed her to this thread she hopes will
be a sanctuary.
