TUESDAY TERROR #07: Lefty & the Boxcar, Part 2

Here it is Junkies: the conclusion to "Lefty & the Boxcar!" If you missed part 1 of 2, you can download that here. "Lefty & the Boxcar" is written by Steven Gomez; edited and performed by Arioch Morningstar. Steven's Junkie handle is Pilsner and his blog can be found at taconoir.com. Lefty is a character that Steven used from Scott's KISSYMAN & THE GENTLEMAN novella.


The Story So Far:
Lefty is dismissed from his job as a bouncer for treating Bill Boxcar Brakeman like any other drunk. Randolph Montgomery, Boxcar's promoter, is impressed by Lefty's performance and hires him to ensure that Boxcar behaves during his training. Things are going well, up until the week before the big fight.

I liked the story...

A bit downbeat and an interesting offshoot to the Kissyman tale.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, the KISSYMAN sub-set….

….is kind of cool for that very reason. It's like a noir offshoot of Scott's normal style. That's the reason I'm eager to see what folks thought of this piece.

So much win.

I love this.
That is all.

Loved it!

Great story. I felt it fit in well with the KISSYMAN vibe. This is not a happy place, people.

Thanks for the kind words,

Thanks for the kind words, FDO! It was a blast going to the dark side, but then again, is there really a light and comfy side to the Siglerverse?

Better vocal consistency in Part 2 than Part 1?

Kewl kewl. Thanks for the feedback.

Trying to do 6-8 different humans was certainly a PITA. That's part of the reason I let Kate take two of them ;)

As long as I keep making positive progress, I'm happy. Please let me know if I begin to backslide. Big John aka Quality Control Agent Numero Uno Laughing

Best Tuesday tale yet?

The best Tuesday Terror story yet.  I haven't been a great fan of some of the stories to this point (sorry!).  Before this, the characters have seemed flat, as if they had static, predefined personalities that reacted to situations.  No change, no reflection, nothing that made the character alive.  "Lefty and the Boxcar" went beyond this.  The characters had issues, their own stories, and involvement in the plot.  It felt more "real".

Keep it up!
