Drabble Fire Sale  
Free drabbles to the first five commenters—original or fandom (one I know!) and a prompt, please. I'll set you up.

Time was, (*pulls up rocking chair*) I'd hit the limit in a flash, and now it's like I can't give the darn things away. I think they're still good? *thumps a lid or two* Yep, still fresh.


I feel as if I need to start reading my library books double-time. Somehow, Murphy's Law conspires to make all of my "on-hold" books available at once, and any book you had a hold on will of course have someone else waiting for it after you. I.e., no renewals! So, I'm trying to finish The Wondershow and some Lisa Scottoline book (not one of her better ones, but not bad, and it's in large print which sadly now matters). I was partway through The Shining (which I've now renewed) on the Kindle, but two other e-books popped up recently. This ignores the Jeffrey Deaver book, a Geoffrey Macguire book, and a Terry Pratchett book I may or may not read, all of them sitting in the book basket by the front door. Thank goodness for "read and return"—I can take as long as I want for those.

I want to read everything all at once, and this takes me to my usual state of "Why am I not retired? Or why haven't I won the lottery yet?" Which is so not going to happen!

Prompt: Kindling.

I'd like to win lotto too. I don't play, though, so...

Ooh, I know what a drabble is!

Prompt: Wily

I've given up getting books for my Kindle app because I seldom remember that it's there, LOL. I just can't get used to reading on it as opposed to holding a BOOK and TURN actual pages and falling asleep on top of it. Can't do that with a tablet!

OooOOOOooh! Star Trek or Supernatural! Prompt: Ego.

(Also hearty agreement: too many books and never enough time to read them in!!! *flails*)

Oh Supernatural and The Shinig. Cold. m. :)

I haven't finished The Shining, though-- I'm only maybe 15-20% through!

Is there something else you'd like instead? :D
mdlawmdlaw on April 20th, 2015 08:59 pm (UTC)
Anything Supernatural if the boys are cold.

It's finally ready, with a huge delay for getting the drabble right and then days and days of pondering the title.

Thanks for your patience!

I don't know why it took me so long to finish and post this, but it's ready now. I hope you like it! :D

i can't tell if mdlaw's comment is a drabble request or not, but in case you need another one, i offer justified. :D prompt: fresh.
mdlawmdlaw on April 19th, 2015 11:18 pm (UTC)
Why yes it is a request for a Supernatural/The Shing crossover drabble. :)
