Circus Assistant by Zilepo

In my defense, the job posting was for a circus assistant. Sure, maybe the flyer was a little suspect - it didn't say anything about payment rates or length of contract, but it did offer not only room and board but 'unique, valuable experience'. So I'd shown up at the interview thinking they'd have some sort of normal one on one chat. Instead, I was told I was going to have to 'perform' on stage for the interviewer, and they offered me some peanuts. Again, maybe I should have thought it ov...

The heat had been absolutely unbearable all day. Alex had been sweating in his apartment profusely, the air conditioning broken down, and he'd already taken off his shirt to try and make things a little easier. But there had been something a bit off in the water he'd taken a swig of from the fountain at the dog park. He'd been getting hotter all day, not noticing the swelling in his chest and the shifting of his feet. It was only when he had a full blown muzzle that he realized something was def...

Mess With The Bull And You Get The Horns by Zilepo

Anyone ever tell you that age old idiom, "ya mess with the bull, you get the horns"? Because honestly I never had before this. Yeah, I was out at night when I shouldn't have been and may have done some cattle tipping, but it was honest fun! Until the farmer came out and screamed after us that we'd get the horns... I didn't think much of it until I got home, and it was then that I realized I'd gained a hefty amount of weight, and a tail... and most definitely horns. I hope this isn't permanent......
No More Monkey Business by Zilepo

Y'know, I've got a bit of a loose tongue when it comes to making jokes, especially bad puns. I'd like to think they're pretty funny, but not everyone's a fan of 'em. So when I made a bad pun regarding monkeying around to a friend on the subway, it must have been overheard by an annoyed spell caster, because by the time I'd gotten home, I had already started getting thicker around my midsection and furrier by the minute! It didn't take much longer to go full gorilla... honestly, this change is go...
Grabbing Life By The Horns by Zilepo

Second hand shops can have all sorts of interesting pieces of literature. Generally the older they are, the more sketchy they can be, but I've always been a fan of greek mythology, and there was an old art book purporting to have interesting spells hidden throughout the greek art section. I bought it on a whim and was skimming through the pages when I came across some interesting phrases that had something to do with satyrs. I was musing aloud as I read and... well, it turns out it was a spell b...
