Animated Short “D” Brings Murderous Fountain Pen To Life



By | Posted on 25 April 2012

In the quirky little short simply named D, a homicidal fountain pen has his point aimed squarely at a tiny dot labeled with the letter d.  The setting is at night in what seems to be a spooky library or reading room.  Naturally, there’s a thunderstorm outside and poor little d is frightened by the inclement weather.

Not bothering anyone and only wishing the storm would subside, d suddenly finds himself being pursued by a malevolent fountain pen.  As d runs for his life through the book in which he lives, many letters are disturbed and much ink is spilled.

There are pursuits through paragraphs!  Mayhem in margins!  Chaos amidst kerning!  Worry amongst words!

WARNING: Contains graphic scenes of fresh ink.  Not for the faint of font.

Editor for Three If By Space. Tom first became interested in science fiction & science as a very young child thanks to his parents. His earliest memories of enjoying scifi were sitting with his dad watching first-run episodes of the original Star Trek. Although a rabid fan of nearly all forms of scripted television, some of Tom’s favorite shows are Firefly, Falling Skies, Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, the X-Files and all versions of both Star Trek and Stargate. He also has a particular love for British television and dearly hopes to one day visit the UK.
