I recently became determined to write a drabble. As a writer of epic fanfiction, I have always had respect for writers who can do drabbles, but the skill elludes me. What I ended up with was a body of ficlets mostly too long for drabble-length but shorter than even the usual length of my rare short fics. Some are connected to my Rediscovered Hearts AU and some are just random. So I'm just going to post each one separately because there's no rhyme or reason to them so it doesn't make sense to do a "collection".

Sam

They traded books and met for coffee on their downtime. There were things about him that she understood when even Jack didn't. Her mind astounded him, and she could still wipe the sparring mat with him every time. She was military through and through. When Jack gave an order, she followed it. Yet, when it came to the old argument about scientific versus military applications of the technology they recovered on their missions, or the scientific value of missions which would clearly offer no strategic or tactical advantage, she was more often than not on his side. She rarely let anyone see her vulnerable side. She had to keep that part of her hidden because she still felt like "the girl" trying to play in the boys' yard. Almost no one knew how she felt about Jack or that she sometimes wished she could have adopted Cassie Fraiser. Daniel was honored that she trusted him with those aspects of herself. He'd never had a sister. Until she came along.
