WELCOME TO DECEMBER PROJECT!
this explanation/intro will be posted before each day’s short story. scroll down to get to the story-review.
this is the FOURTH year of me doing a short story advent calendar as my december project. for those of you new to me or this endeavor, here’s the skinny: every day in december, i will be reading a short story that is 1) available free somewhere on internet, and 2) listed on goodreads as its own discrete entity. there will be links provided for those of you who like to read (or listen to) short stories for free, and also for those of you who have wildly overestimated how many books you can read in a year and are freaking out about not meeting your 2019 reading-challenge goals. i have been gathering links all year when tasty little tales have popped into my feed, but i will also accept additional suggestions, as long as they meet my aforementioned 1), 2) standards.
if you scroll to the end of the reviews linked here, you will find links to all the previous years’ stories, which means NINETY-THREE FREEBIES FOR YOU!
reviews of these will vary in length/quality depending on my available time/brain power.
so, let’s begin
that picture is from the very end of the story, and is indicative of the way many human/fox interactions end; frustration and screaming.
i had some other screenshots ready to post, but as always, photobucket let me down. so you’ll have to read this one yourself, because waiting for photobucket to play nice again is a fool’s errand.
as i bring it back home, it is also a fool’s errand to expect a FOX to play nice, although whatever they do, they’re gonna do in style.
apart from that lesson, this transformation-based fairytale reminds us that change is bad. there’s more to it than that, obviously, but those are the lessons i’m choosing to take away today because mood.
