Welcome! And Introduction!

What is [community profile] 100words?

[community profile] 100words is a weekly drabble challenge community originally hosted on Imzy and now here on Dreamwidth. Every Tuesday a new prompt is posted -- a word, picture, phrase, quotation -- and members are invited to respond with a drabble (fiction that is exactly 100 words in length).

Do I have to include the prompt in my reply?

No. The prompt is merely a means to get your creative juices flowing.

Seriously, what if my drabble doesn't include the prompt?

Not a problem. The prompt is merely there to inspire you to write 100 words.

What if I write more than 100 words?

Please limit your responses to 100 words in length. There are other communities for fiction under and over 100 words, such as [community profile] fic_promptly and [community profile] fandomweekly.

How do I participate?

Please post your fiction to the community, indicating in the tag which prompt you are answering. We will start with Prompt #25 because that's where 100 Words on Imzy is at.

Here is a template for posting your work:

Subject: Original - Title (or) Fandom - Title

Here's the template for easier pasting:

What if I miss a prompt?

No worries! Every tenth week is an Amnesty Week, when all previous prompts are fair game.

Can I post fanfic/original fic?

All fiction is welcome at [community profile] 100words. Please indicate the fandom in your post, or whether it is original fiction. Content warnings for potential triggers, mature or explicit content, or spoilers are also expected.

Do I need to include content warnings, ratings, and spoilers?

Yes. Please see the question above.

Is there an AO3 collection?

There is! You can find the AO3 collection here and can include your work in the collection by choosing 100words in the "Post to Collections / Challenges" field.

I have a question you haven't answered!

Feel free to comment here!

misbegotten: Eve and Flynn Kiss from The Librarians (Librarians Eve Flynn Kiss Eternity)

The Librarians - Between the Shadows, Light

Title: Between the Shadows, Light
Fandom: The Librarians (TV 2014)
Rating: General Audiences
Characters/Pairing: Eve Baird/Flynn Carsen

Flynn flies by the seat of his pants.

Eve likes the seat of his pants. She likes all the bits of him.

They don't entirely trust each other, though. That grieves her. It infuriates her. It's the truth. He comes and goes on his own whim (fine, on missions), he denigrates her plans (they're good plans!), he thinks that peril passes for a date (okay, he just gets her).

"What's that for?" he asks after she kisses him thoroughly.

"Nothing," she says with a smile.

They don't trust each other, yet. But apparently they love one another. Sometimes, that's enough.
misbegotten: Lewis and Hathaway with Key and Lock (Lewis Key & Lock)

Lewis: Onward

Title: Onward
Fandom: Lewis
Rating: Teen and Up
Characters/Pairings: James Hathaway/Robert Lewis

There is no time for grief. Robbie has gone, and James must soldier on.

So when James returns to his flat to find Robbie on his doorstep, he is gobsmacked.

"Couldn't leave without this, could I?" Robbie says and carefully, with determination, kisses James.

James has waited a long time for their first kiss. It's just the right amount of want to persuade James that no, he isn't dreaming and yes, Robbie fits as perfectly as he always suspected.

"Will you stay?" he asks, trembling at the answer.

"Aye, lad."

James would rather be a lover than a fighter, anyway.
misbegotten: Karen Eiffel at her typewriter from Stranger Than Fiction (STF Typewriter)

Original: Love Trumps Hate

Title: Love Trumps Hate
Original Fiction
Rating: General Audiences
Content Warning: Politics

There are many dark places. She knows. Other heroes know. Heroes like the members of Congress boycotting the inauguration. Like those heroes who march, ride, walk, and run through the streets of Washington D.C., who picket and hold signs proclaiming their allegiance not to this man, but to this country. Like those who call and write. Like those heroes who choose not to go quietly into the night, but to fight, and fight.

Love is now mingled with grief, Tolkien said. Let us grieve, for we must. But most of all let us love now, she thinks. Love. Love better.
