The Emperor's Eggs
« on: April 12, 2013, 08:26:28 pm »
Isabel the chicken has come up in conversation several times in the forum as well as made appearances in tag lines and fan art.  I had a small plot bunny that involved her but it never really was insistant until a friend of mine gifted me with a dozen fresh eggs and the tale of how one of her chickens was an escape artist.  The plot bunny, inspired by this tale, immediately grew several sizes and morphed into a plot chicken.  Its been pecking me for weeks now trying to escape to the freedom of the internet.  It hasn't been beta read and most likely has typos but I want it out so it will stop bothering me and let me work on other things!  That said, here are scenes from EE1, both actual and implied, from the POV of Isabel.  I attempted to have the character dialog verbatim and to not mangle Lindsay's other words too badly.

Enjoy.

Beautiful work, it brought a tear to my eye... I love that chicken  ;D

Chicken
Born to lay eggs
Houdini never knew
Your bright eye and feathery form
Buckaw.

"Oh good," Maldynado said. "Isabel got out."
