Throwback Thursday – Things React to The Desert Glassmaker and the Jeweler of Berevyar at Uncanny Magazine

To read what they were responding to head over to Uncanny Magazine and reading Rose Lemberg’s “The Desert Glassmaker and the Jeweler of Berevyar” 

Note on letter eating!

Believe it or not the Things have a history of letter eating that goes back to 2013!

But as the Letters to Boot and Letter From Fran episodes show, the Things are quite good at eating letters and then reading the contents as they ingest! Such nourishing food.


My dearest friend,

I am writing to you, because words are beautiful.

I am writing to you because the sensation of this pen touching the page makes me feel close to you, as if you are already reading this, even though I haven't finished writing it.

How are you?

What color is the sky?

Where are you standing when you read this?

Sometimes I miss you, even when you are next to me.

Sometimes I feel so close to you when a world divides us.

Isn't life a funny old thing

With all my love.

Thing 1: Letter for you

Thing 2: Me?!

Thing 2 eats the letter.

Thing 2 has swallowed the letter, but it bulges out of their neck like a bowtie.

Thing 2: It's delicious.
