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".

Face in the Mirror

He's afraid sometimes that his resolve will falter at a critical moment. Offworld, there are times when there's no room for what-ifs. He's afraid that because of him, one of his teammates won't make it home. He knows that sometimes triggers need to be pulled, and he's afraid he won't have the guts. Other times, he knows he will, and that scares him just as much. He wonders what happened to the man he was, and he's just a little uneasy with what he's becoming. Still, he keeps going through the gate. It's who he is.
