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".


An Age Old Tale

Stop me if you've heard this one before. Boy meets girl. Boy shoots girl. Girl shoots boy. Boy passes out. Girl ties boy up and steals starship. Boy wakes up. Girl shoots boy. Girl beats boy up. Boy and girl kiss. Boy headbutts girl. Girl passes out. Boy takes her clothes, locks her up, and watches her on surveillance…



"Cut that out!"

"Oh, have I forgotten something…?"


"Then what's the matter, darling?"

"Just—just—just—cut it out!"

And so, boy and girl walk off into the blue, shimmering, gelatinous-looking sunset, bickering snarkily ever after. The End.
