It needs a better title, but I can't even think right now.

Bad Luck by CailinLiath is short humorous fiction at its best: hints of an interesting, greater setting pair well with madcap disasters following the subject of the piece ( Featured by ShadowedAcolyte )

I enjoyed reading that quite a bit! That's a hell of a short story.

That's actually really quite amazing. The amount of detail and movement you described is beautifully put and flows exceptionally well together. (Although, I found a slight typing error ;) )
You should certainly become an author... if you aren't already!!!

Well done.

How about:
"Her Laser sight Reflected"
"Bad luck better than no luck"
The Man of Dis hour's disasters.

"On social occasions, every man had some Charlie characteristics: this one his profile, that one his shoulders, another his eyes. It was as if the City were populated by prototype Charlies. But none of them had his smile. She had tried to forget about Charlie, tried to dismiss his constant periphery, but it was difficult with these ever-present reminders, these almosts."

I really love this paragraph! I hope you're proud of it. What a thoughtful way to say something so many people have said in such cliche ways. Nice work :)

"It was as if the City were populated by prototype Charlies." is one of the freshest descriptions of the feeling of having a huge crush that I've read in a long time.

Fun and really racy flash fiction. A lot of narrative in less than 1000 words. Great!
