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".



Vala spent ten minutes spraying different air fresheners into the aisle. Daniel watched, silently vowing that he was never going to agree to take her to Wal-Mart again. Finally she found a pink and orange canister that made her happy, and he suspected that the color combination was what she liked so much.

"Daniel, I don't think I want to visit the tropics on this planet," she said.

"Okay…" he said slowly. "Why not?"

She sprayed the stuff again. "It's good as an air freshener, but I wouldn't want to walk around outside smelling this sort of tropical breeze."
