1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.

2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.

3. Write a drabble 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 afterwards!

4. Do ten of these, then post them

Chosen Item: Sasuke/Naruto pairing

Warning: Some of these drabbles may end awkwardly or be cut off halfway. This is due to the "start and finish" rule of this challenge. No, I don't plan to ever complete those drabbles and no, I don't want to re-write them. The fun of challenges like these are seeing what you can produce in the restricted time. So I hope you enjoy them! Read on ...

1. Nobody's Home by Avril Lavigne

Looking up at the building that loomed before him, Naruto closed his eyes and clenched his fist. It felt like routine. He let his head fall forward and he'd grit his teeth, trying to play it off like nothing was the matter. Naruto had never been very good at holding in his emotions. It was already so late but Naruto was sick of it, just like he was every evening he wound up back at this place.

He hated it. He wished it was gone.

Looking back up at the building, he took in a deep breath. Throwing his fist into the air, he let the trembling hand point toward the window he knew all too well.

This was it, just like every time.

Time to go on home. Home to where nobody was waiting for him anymore.

END: First Drabble

Review each individual drabble, please!
