Challenge #03955-J303: Spooky Scary

Get in the Halloween spirit and make a ghost!

That’s called murder and I heard somewhere that it was illegal -- Anon Guest

Human Wren glared over his crafting supplies as he donned the thick industrial gloves. "Okay. A few things. Ghosts aren't really real like that. Most of it's infra-sound and magnetic fields messing with our jellyware." A tap to his head as he brought out the rolls of chicken wire. "Secondly, I am not about to kill anybody in the belief that that was even possible. Third... What the flying flakk, Carl?"

Companion Carl maintained her distance from the mad human with the weird project in progress[1]. The humanoid torso had definitely put her in a cautious state of mind. The fact that it was plastic didn't help. It was still a dismembered body part. "Your species' reputation precedes you, I'm afraid." After a minute, she added, "I'm very afraid."

"Chicken wire ghosts," Wren, having finished cutting a length of mesh, wrapped it around the torso and pressed it into shape. "A hollow shape reminiscent of a human form, but... not actually a ghost." A very human grin. "I'm going to attach this one to one of the roombas in Cargo Hold Four. Part of the Haunted House, this year."

Human Dee was just starting to appreciate having a dull job. On the other hand, they still needed something to do.

The scientists were as safe as they could

Challenge #01986-E162: Inner Beautification

Yarn Bombing. Putting hand made yarn stuff in public places. Once done to stop authorities from removing much needed bus stop/shelter. Weird but true. Put your own spin on this. -- Anon Guest

[AN: I could not find any instance of yarn bombing as an avenue of protest. It's mostly a wasteful form of gentrified graffiti.]

As a child of the depression, Cynthia hated waste. She never got more than she needed in the first place, and did her utmost to

For those of you who have been wondering what I was up to when I was forbidden to write for three and a bit weeks…

This is it.

had this flat-pack dollhouse in my SABLE [Stash Above and Beyond Life Expectancy] for some years [something over eight years FYI]. And I
figured that it would at least keep me distracted for my enforced
