The Red Parade

Cars are still parked outside. If the rapture had happened, why was it unrecognizable? Why was the sky blue? Why did no one tell me? Do these things not announce themselves?


In the middle of a city determined to bleed her dry, Apple Fritter is struggling to hold on to what little she has left. Then along came a debt collector named Strawberry Sunrise.

Winner of the Quills and Sofas Second Duos Contest, co-written with the brilliant Shaslan who also did the cover art!

This was truly a heart-warming story, one that I read all in one sitting.

I liked the ending, and I was impressed that you didn't answer all the questions but left parts of the story for the reader to decide. The best stories are written that way!

This is going in my Group Rated 'E' for Everyone in a place of honor: the Folder 'The Best of the Best.'

Great story that managed to set up this whole setting and make me cheer for Strawberry and Fritter to run away together by the end. It all felt natural for the situation, especially with your evocative descriptions.

This one gave me emotions, I can imagine everything so clearly in my head and I love the relationship between these two. Catch that train!

Aw, that was sweet. Bittersweet in the middle too, and depressingly realistic, but, I loved that ending so much.

This is a wonderful story. You paint a depressing canvas, a cement wasteland, yet it manages to birth the shining star of friendship, a friendship that takes off into the skies (or train tracks) to find a spot to shine...

This was lovely !! A sweet little bite of story that leaves me wondering about what would happen next. I love how you characterize the pair !
