Oh good God, I wrote a drabble. I was curious, I poked and thus was tagged. 100 words? Not as easy as I thought. Ficlet is -meh-, but I always believe in practice makes perfect.

Next...ncis1000words.

Help.

Title: Accident
Author: Yum@ aka mrwubbles
Fandom: Star Trek XI
Prompt: #10 "Accident"
Words: 100
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilers for the movie, unbetaed, un-pretty, muse was not fed sufficient Oreoes for this...




Ensign Clifton still refers to himself as cadet sometimes.

...sweat but his skin was dry

...breathe but suffocating

...footfall

...a shadow they'd all missed

...lightning screams and soars horizontal

a child cries...

He stood at the foot of bodies splayed like dolls fallen in place, limbs reaching uselessly for each other. Blood pools a shade lighter than the blood in him. But it's still blood.

A hand takes his phaser. A flash of gold shirt, of blue that reminded him the sky of his Earth home. All he could say, when everything was over, was that it was an accident.

Having just written a few for the McShep match drabble tree, I would concur, drabbles *are* hard! Yours is, wow! Very evocative.

Thanks. I had joined thinking, "Hey, 100 isn't a lot" but oh boy, the tight control of imagery versus emotions? Yikes.

Ah, but it kick starts me to returning to neglected fic. :)

I wasn't going to say anything, but there has been a sad lack of E!fic in my inbox lately :-)

Would an E! icon do? LOL. Seriously though, the one that is "Not Trunk" is being tweaked for your axe. LOL

EEEE! Pretty icon! Since it's bedtime, it will do for now ;-) Hopefully now I'll have pretty Emergency dreams. Okay,wait, fires and ambulances. Hm... Maybe I should rethink that! *g* I'll look forward to the "Not Trunk" fic.

TV Quote of the Day

Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?
