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".


Between the Lines

Daniel likes black ink. In a pinch, he'll use blue. He doesn't buy those annoying fat pens with ten different colors. He doesn't like gel pens, especially the ones with sparkles in the ink. Vala? She likes purple. Purple! And if it's sparkly, she'll even bounce. Now, secretly, he likes it when she bounces like that. Her pigtails go up and down, and she looks so innocent that he forgets how much she gets on his nerves. He likes it when she smiles—really smiles, not that slow, seductive, fake smile or the knowing smirk. But—purple!
