Gantic has a thread and will weave a cloth. This is a thread brought to you by Gantic & Co. Bringin' change to a constantly changin' world.

The title of the thread will become apparent later, but to start off:

Three Cowboys

Just to make things clear, there were never three cowboys. Just two. One of them's got the solar-powered laptop, the other's got the rubber ducky, but they're both mavericks, all three of them. It was my idea to throw in the third cowboy, but he's as real as any of the others. The solar-powered laptop and the rubber ducky were my idea, too. So were the two cowboys. To make things clear: There were no cowboys.
In the vast emptiness of the Moobes, a black craft shaped like a horse, christened the Star Straddler, cruised to what was only a small but sparkly blue-and-green marble. The captain had his boots up on the dash as his craft crawled along the moobe that would bring him to the planet that the Moogle Navigator had found. As the craft touched down on the surface, only one thought was on the captain's mind: "The Space Cowboy has landed. In Armor Games."

Make a book. A collection of stories if you will. I'd buy it.

...There have been posts here since I last posted from this year?

This entire thread, I'm guessing, takes about an hour to read, maybe less (I'm a slow reader). Thank you for reading this.

For anyone interested in a just a little bit more about what I intended to do or just about the Bullman, further reading materials:
"AFTERWORD" - Not actually an afterword but a reflection. That post links to another "crucial" post, and hints at what "Lore" is supposed to be.

The Further Adventures of The Bullman:
Contestant in The Way of Moderation, Eliminated
Protagonist in Lore

Make a book. A collection of stories if you will. I'd buy it.


I have yet to complete a short story that I was proud of and felt was "marketable". By that I mean it reads well on its own. My writings thus far have been far too crutched on world building and not story telling. Still haven't written an extended version of "Oranges" (though I probably won't) and have not even started on the elusive "Shoelaces" that's been stuck to my shoes for three years. I hope to have something eventually if not within the next 5 years.

Rubber ducky water gun! I think this is more accessible because I wrote it more accessible (:P) and rushed it as a story about a bunch of things that happened and didn't happen and nonsense pieces about what was going on with Armor Games around the time, metaphorically of course.

Gantic might be pleased (I don't rightly know) that this thread garnered some attention a year after its last post, but please don't resurrect zombie threads! His last post was clearly intended as a final post!
