Inspired by the talented supaslim, here's my go at it. (since fanfiction is finally not being ridiculous)
The rules of the challenge are:
1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn your music player on and turn it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabblet/ficlet related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterward! No matter how whacked out your drabble is. :)
4. Do ten of these, then post them. (I'll probably do more, because these are great writing warm ups)
Call and Answer: Barenaked Ladies
No matter how they tried, nothing about this resurgence of the "Crimebusters" was the same as before. There was hurt, betrayal.
And Rorschach was not the same, ever since…
Dan pushed the thought from his mind, holding the Comedian's pin in his hand, Rorschach long since gone. Something more than the bitterness of losing a 'co-worker' lingered in that monotone, gravel voice.
It wouldn't register until later that Daniel Dreiberg was much more than that to the strange masked man. Daniel was a pillar, something steady and solid in the man's slowly crumbling mind. When he had gone, the man had nothing concrete but the difference between scum and innocence.
And yet, even when his mind seemed to go, Rorschach would occasionally show up, as if trying to make sense of what had happened. To perhaps reform the friendship, or…make amends.
Wordless, it slipped from both minds, better off forgotten.
