"It's not fair," I grumbled into my salad of wilted leaves. I looked over at Amarthara, her long black ringlets falling over her face. She looked through them at me.

"It just is the way it is here," she replied, all philosophical and zen-like. "We are not considered equal citizens, but the elders tell of times when it was far worse for women."

I sighed, why did they roll over and take it so easily? "Women make up over half the population, why should we be shackled? We can do everything a man can. We could fight unseen by them!"

85) Author's choice: Exertion
Counted as one of my 100 drabbles of summer
Muse: Ashton

I glared down at the large, thorny plant. It sat there, thick vines protecting that one single flower I needed. The thorns were red, reflecting deeply scored lines in my arms.

I wiped my forehead from the exertion, I'd been at this for over an hour. I couldn't reach through the vines, I couldn't cut them off, I was stumped. But I had to have that flower; the key ingredient to the antidote.

First I had to get the flower home though. Time to dig the whole thing up and deal with thorns later.

Back breaking work, here I come!

"Water blaster," called Ash from behind a clipboard.

"Check!" I replied.

"Extra large water bombs."


"Stink bombs."

"Check." I looked down at the bright, enticing packet. "Mum'll kill you if she finds these."

"So don't tell her," he replied with a cheeky grin. "Aunt Matilda's posh little brats deserve them. I'll give you a fiver if you can set one off in their wardrobe." He waggled his eyebrows.

"Ok, deal, but you have to pack a water gun for me too! We can tag team them!"

"Extra large water gun for sister," he said pointing at his wardrobe.

83) Author's choice: instructing someone else
Muse: Ariella

"No no no!" I yelled, patience snapping. "You need to be firm, don't yield to their suggestions.

Ash glanced at me. "I'm…  not sure if that is a good idea."

Was he talking to me or them? "They're just suggesting these paths because they have family that way. But the only way to save them is to euthanize where the disease already is."

He stuttered a version of what I said. We all stood around a crude map. Not one of the men noticed me. I was a woman so I couldn't possibly be clever.

Yet I was in charge.

Tonight, give us 100 words about what comes after. Interpret how you like.

82. Author's choice: After
used for 100 Drabbles of summer

In the beginning it was just me and him. No angels, no demons, no trove begging us to save them. But then we caused the plague, and then we were burdened with a duty to fix what out mere presence caused.

We were turned to warriors, to traitors, to mass murderers, and to saviours. We were just kids, lost looking for a way home, wanting out Mum to tuck us up in bed and put plasters on our cuts.

Ashton turned from a boy to a man before my eyes, a destiny thrown upon him. But I just became invisible.

I thought, since everyone else has one, that I'd jump on the band wagon and make my own Master fic list to keep track of my scattered work. I will add more as it gets written

First off: my 100 drabbles of summer table 2011
and: 100 drabbles of summer 2012

My main Fics )

100 prompt table )

A double use drabble, both for the thursday prompt in [community profile] charloft, and for my 100 drabbles of summer table. Ashton and Kim, from a novel in progress (well, more like in planning)

Whether it is lightning, static, the kind between two people or the kind that lives inside your wall, give us a short short on electricity

Kim trembled. Ash looked into her eyes, just below him. He was covering her, trying to protect her from the fighting. He opened his mouth, platitudes on his lips, when he saw the naked fury burning in her caramel-brown eyes. He frowned.

Suddenly she snarled, an animalistic sound he'd never heard. She rolled him off of her, standing in one fluent move, his hung off her shirt, failing to keep her down.

"Enough!" she screamed, eyes blazing. White light flew up around her, lightning from a storm cloud. It flew out hitting enemies, leaving friends unharmed.

"What the hell, Kim?"

These will be a mixture of fan fition and original, I will find a way to show what's what, but as of yet i don't know how.

Without further ado...
