Yup, this is my official 100 Theme Drabble posting (an early resolution for 2008). Here's the thing, officially a "drabble" is exactly 100 words long. I am going to try and follow the rules, but… I'm not going to make any promises. Since I really want to be a serious writer, I figure this is a good way to keep me on my toes. Obviously, advance critique is encouraged. Also, while most likely I will stick to my original characters (since I think this project will be an excellent way to do some character development) be on the lookout for "generic marching band" as well. There is really no telling where in the storylines any of these particular drabbles will fit in, so if possible, I will try and least mention the storyline that they are closest to.

Oh yeah, I highly doubt I'll be going in order.

Expect changes in tense, and between 1st and 3rd person, cause that's pretty much my M.O. anyway.

Like the idea? I'm borrowing it – so why not try it yourself? What's 100 words? Writing a novel is intense, but starting with a smaller story might lead to something bigger.

Rated T for who knows what the heck I'm going to write – most likely language.

I'm going to post the list for the first "chapter" only.

49. Umbrella (post Keeping in Line – end Spring semester, B/T's sophomore year)

"Holy crap, this song is annoying," Tony barked, turning down Rihanna's voice.

"It's not so bad." Bronwyn reached over and cranked the dial back up, smirking, "You're just worried that no one is going to offer you to stand under their umbrella."

"Remind me why am I driving you to practice?"

"Drew's busy – his family's in town for graduation. Also, as the only returning almost junior snares, we have to show solidarity."

Bronwyn received a skeptical look in response.

"Don't be a grump. Fine, if there's no one else, I'll give you a temporary loan of my umbrella."

"Thanks."


AN: I just went with my first instinct on what to write. 100 words even is hard to do!!
