2013 MAY DRABBLE WARS

HELLO EVERYONE! *waves*

This is an informational greeting and for me to get things in place for Friday.

As most of you know, the drabble gauntlet was thrown down at the beginning of the year and seven authors picked it up this month! If you are interested in participating in a future "war" then come on over to the Drabble War Forum group on Facebook (link on my profile). In the FILES tab, there are sign ups available for every month this year. "Wars" will take place on the middle weekend of each month. It is first come, first serve so come on over and claim your spot. We hope to see new authors each month!

The Drabble War Forum is not for authors only; it is also for the readers who want to follow along with the wars. It is a central place to meet and discuss the stories as they are posted. With each round, banners and summaries will be posted in the group as well as links to author profiles.

WHILE WE ARE LABELING THIS A WAR, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT NO OFFICIAL WINNER WILL BE DETERMINED. THIS IS ALL IN GOOD FUN. JUST FRIENDLY COMPETITION.

The real winners are the readers who get up to eight new stories each month!

Let's meet this month's participants:


Lost and Found by Mrs. Nina Cullen | Twilight - Edward/Bella
He was surrounded by people yet he felt lost and alone. She Was lost and alone but doesn't know any other way. Can these two finding each other make them happy.


The Many Sightings of Him by Mona Rider | Twilight - Bella/Edward
I've seen him many times, but when recalling them all, I tell the story of a crazy girl in love, with just as crazy of a guy. I was a sucker for 'happily ever after' and I got more than I bargained for.


The Last Night by Misfit Heartbreak | Twilight - Bella/Sam
Bella is on the verge of breaking apart into a million peices, after all being in a abusive home isn't what anyone wants to live.
Banner: WIP will upload when done.


Love 'Hurts' by Lost in Fanfiction | Twilight - Edward/Bella
Edward takes the phrase "Love Hurts" to a new level when he attempts to get ready to join the dating world again.


And finally, allow me to introduce you to my drabble.

Come Back to Me by Mina Rivera | Vampire Academy - Rose/Dimitri
She thought they had finally found their happily ever after, but in real life there were always more obstacles to overcome. One tragic event will put their love to the test on their road to forever.

WARNING: THIS IS A DRABBLE/DRIBBLE FIC, WHICH MEANS CHAPTERS WILL BE BETWEEN 100-200 WORDS LONG. Also, it's going to be an angsty story, and some of you might hate Dimka in it, but I promise a HEA, though it will be a very bumpy ride. Better put on those big girl panties!

With that said… You are not obligated to read this story, there are other amazing drabbles updating this weekend as well that you can go them check out, you can find the links on the blog [drabblewar. blogspot. com] but if you do read my story, please keep in mind that I wrote this with heart and soul, so please be kind if you review.

~ PROLOGUE ~

I bent forward, my hands covering my face and my forehead nearly touching my knees.

"I can't tell him," I told her between sobs.

I felt her move, sitting down next to me, the paper still in her hand. "But you have to, honey. It's the right thing—"

"I can't! I can't, Lissa. Not now. He doesn't… love me… anymore."

Her arm wrapped around my shoulders, trying to support me as my sobs wracked through my body.

"He does, I know he does. He just…. Rose, he has a right to know."

I shook my head, letting my tears fall unbidden and unrestrained.

"If I tell him, he'll do the right thing."

"Exactly!"

I grasped my best friend's hands in mine.

"I love him so much, Lissa!" I sobbed, feeling my heart breaking all over again.

I looked into her eyes, seeing my pain reflected in them.

"But I rather he be happy and free, than to watch him be miserable with me."


A/N: I'll be updating ten chapters tonight. The first five right now and later the other fives.

I want to thank Nicia for taking over beta duties, even though she is just finishing her exams. Thank you, bb. *BIG SQUISHY HUGS*

That's all from me and for those of you that stayed… *hands out tissues* You're gonna need them.

See ya Friday!
