No, no you're not shitting me, you're shitting yourself. That's just great. I've never changed a diaper in my life and the first one I have to change is my twenty-six-year-old-boyfriend. Just freaking great."

Okay - the idea was cute - but not the authors idea so no star for this.

The writing itself was ....sorry, was so simple. I have a pet-peeve and this was so delivered in that story. It's the authors "easy way out". They want to tell something but try to be not repetitive. So they try to avoid wrting "He did" or "Name of the MC did" (did is of course just a placeholder for the actual verb).
So the author starts many sentences with a subordinate clause using the "ing-form".
E.g. "Rushing from...he r
A really cute and funny bit of free fiction. Never read anything by this author before and will definitely be looking for other reads.

Cute and happy story but a little too short for me to feel like I got to know the characters or anything. Still an enjoyable free story.

Cute, but needed a little expanding for it to feel like a short story to me.

This story left me with a huge smile on my face! It was so much fun to read and a great take on the picture prompt! Some of the lines dealing with baby humor were wonderfully funny. When the big reveal came at the end of the story as to what actually happened to Jared? Priceless! I thoroughly enjoyed this story - thank you so much! :)

Cute, but somehow unsatisfying. The continual use of expletives (however mild) in the early dialogue was jarring and unnecessary. I was also a little .. concerned about the way the baby was handled! The idea was a clever concept, but there was little emotion or deep concern/love expressed in the earlier part. The ending was amusing though.

This had funny dialogue. A guy turning himself into a baby? And his lover has to figure out what to do? Sign me up. This isn't age play or anything - it's just a cute little short story about what can go wrong when you are somewhat of an impish magic user!
This was so much fun! I couldn't stop laughing!

Magick's Cucumber by H. A. Caine was delightful and humorous. It could have been a bit longer but that's just me. I really enjoyed it.

It was so funny and cute. I was laughing so hard, I just couldn't stop- and nearly couldn't breathe from laughing too much! XD
2.5 stars

I think this would have worked better for me had it been longer. I just wasn't "grabbed" by it although it's not really a bad story either.

I want to write stories that people enjoy, that stick in their minds and (hopefully) put a smile on their face. I grew up writing and have no intentions of stopping now. When I’m not writing, I’m usually sitting in a corner on my e-reader. Or baking; who doesn’t like sweets?
