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".

Blood, Tears, and Beer

There are rivers of tears,
and they have travelled them for each other
they've swum them together and shared one another's pain
They each know the secrets that no one knows.
And they keep them.
There are rivers of blood
And they have pulled one another through them
They have drowned and been dragged up from the depths again
Because noone gets left behind
And noone is forgotten
Sometimes there are rivers of beer
They've drunk those together
To forget, and to remember.
Daniel doesn't like beer.
Jack says it's an acquired taste.
Daniel drinks anyway.
