30 drabbles in 30 days  
Stolen from deviantfantasy, who did this a few years ago and had a lot of fun so I decided to do it myself. The idea is to write 30 drabbles in 30 days starting on August 1st. This is to try to jump-start my fanfic brain again, which has been revving in neutral for too long!

The Rules

1. Reply to this post with up to five prompts (I may ask for more later). Pairings and/or characters are not prompts.

2. Your prompt will be added to a master list, which will be placed in a separate post.

3. When I come to your prompt, I’ll look at your user info page to see what fandoms, characters and/or pairings you like. Then I will write you a drabble.

4. All drabbles will be posted on my journal. And will be 100-200 words long.

5. If I do not get 30 prompts before the 1st, I will fill in the remaining spots with my own and write whatever I chose.

6. If you aren’t into fandom and/or don’t share the same interests as me, you might want to give me something extra to work with. I will write original fic for you if necessary.

7. Fics will be rated from G to NC-17.

This post will be closed on July 31st.

Go ahead and prompt me! :D

(You KNOW what I like.)
1 Many times I've been alone; many times I've cried.
2. Somebody sit in my chair and ruin my sleep and make me aware of being alive.
3. Never saw the sun shining so bright, never saw things going so right.
4. What a difference a day made.
5. I've got too many regrets, I smoke too many cigarettes.

The language of flowers - not all lists are the same. Examples: Rue = disdain, or regret; Lavender = mistrust, or devotion; white carnations can be disdain or loveliness & innocence. This could cause problems.

Piling up excuses: "My car broke down; my phone battery was flat; I didn't have change for a payphone; the taxi drivers went on strike; I was kidnapped by aliens!"

Not everybody likes beaches.

Classical music: enchanting or soporific? Does snoring enhance the bass line?

Info not on my profile page:

Doctor Who (old and new)/Torchwood
Sherlock Holmes
Red Dwarf
Life on Mars
Lord of the Rings (book and film)

I found it. Tiny & sweet, and very believable.
