Author's Note: In talking to a fellow fanfiction buddy, I realized that I've never been very good at writing those series of drabbles & one-shots that everyone else seems to do so well...so naturally, I thought I'd give it a try. When talking to another fanfiction buddy, I was taught about the StoryPeople. Never heard of them? Go now and check out www(DOT)storypeople(DOT)com. Anyway, I will be using StoryPeople stories as inspiration for my little vignettes; you will find the original story at the beginning of each chapter in italics. I'm just starting to write another multi-chapter story, which will be both long and dark, so this will give me an outlet for some humor and fluff (and the occasional angst- see below). Anyway, I hope you enjoy (if not my writing, at least the StoryPeople).

Falling Into Place: deciding everything is falling into place perfectly as long as you don't get too picky about what you mean by place. Or perfectly.
Everything I ever wanted. That's what I have right now. I pull her closer, and her head finds its way to the crook of my neck. I comb my fingers through her hair, absently twirling a single strand as we face the television together. We cheer loudly and allow ourselves the delusion that the Nats might actually have a shot at the Series.
Suddenly, I see it. The future. A love that lasts for thirty years, a sister for Parker, decades of Saturdays spent yelling for our team. It's so close to possible, and if I close my eyes, I don't have to think about how the hair I'm twirling around my fingers should be auburn rather than blond.
Thanks to BonesSarah & Mali Bear's Buddy for the inspiration.
