It Isn't A Screwdriver, Either

by Robert Gryfft


"Hurry up."
"I'm trying!"
"They're getting closer."
"And that isn't helping."
"How hard can it be to reverse the polarity?"
"That doesn't actually mean anything! I just say it to shut you up when I'm trying to repair something inconceivable by human science, so gimme a damn second!"
"They're here."
"And it's fixed. Let's go."

The more I read this one, the more awesome it becomes. Excellent characterization and plot, and entirely through dialogue.

Bravo.

Thanks, Jackson! And I hoped you'd like it, Sonja :)

I read this one again just now, a month later. Sure enough, Ari was right: it was more awesome.
