uncreative title is uncreative

Anyway, this thread is for any fanfic writers/aspiring fanfic writers. :3 It's an exercise that I found on livejournal and tried myself, and it's really fun! biggrin.gif I thought it could be nice to make a drabble thread here, so people can know about it, and also so we can share our drabbles!

Here's how it works:
-Take your iPod/mp3 player/itunes/what have you, and put it on shuffle.
-For the songs that come up, write a drabble. Let the music inspire you. Don't think about it too much, and don't edit. This is just to get you writing.
-Write for the duration of the song: No more, No less.
-Post your drabbles here! Be sure to include which songs you wrote each one to.
Here are mine, if anyone's interested:

“Almost Lover” - A Fine Frenzy

Old photographs were scattered across the table, countless memories, worn with fingerprints. Winry sighed and wiped her hand across her forehead before taking another sip of tea. She picked up one of the dog eared photographs and glanced it over. It was from the summer when they had been about thirteen. Ed and Al had been especially busy that year, but still took time out of their schedule to come and visit her back in Risembool for a week. Pinako had taken them to the beach; they made sandcastles and caught starfish. Winry and Ed had jumped through the waves, while Al's hulking figure watched back on shore.

“Someone To Save You” - OneRepublic

Alfonz sighed as he glanced at his clock. Almost noon, and Ed had still not gotten out of bed. He stood up, the legs of the chair he had been sitting in whined. Walking past the table, a plate of eggs and a glass of juice set out on either side, he approached the stairway and glanced up.
“Ed?” He shouted. “It's almost noon... Do you want some breakfast?” He waited a while, in silence. No response, not even a muffled groan, came from upstairs. Alfonz frowned. He worried about the boy upstairs. Whenever he wasn't sleeping, he was reading, or staring into space with a blank look on his face, as if his mind was somewhere else. Perhaps it was. He hardly ate; Alfonz had to beg him to eat three full meals a day.

“Boats & Birds” - Gregory and the Hawk

“Ed! Ed, are you okay?” His brother's voice slowly drifted into his head as Edward regained consciousness.
“Wha..” He groaned. He tried to lift his arm up to grab at his brother's gloved hand, trying to get a sense of his surroundings, only to find a sharp pain in his ribs whenever he tried to move. He winced, a small whimper escaping from his lips. “Al, what happened?” He asked. His vision was still a bit blurry, but he could still make out the form of his brother sitting alongside him.


Sound interesting? Try it out! I would love to see what other forumers come up with. C:

Oooh, this sounds like fun! I'll give it a shot! biggrin.gif


"Unforgivable Sinner" - Lene Marlin

Swallowing back grief, Al pushes open the door and sees the shadow of what once was his brother, sitting slumped on the floor in a sea of books and alchemic formulas and half-completed (half-hoped) human transmutation circles - maps charted to nowhere to find the missing piece of them that can no longer be found.

"Ed?" He calls his name softly, steps into the study and drops to his knees in front him, silently begging his big brother to look up, to come back him, to remember how to walk.

"I never told her," says Edward, in a voice as empty as his eyes. "She waited, and waited, but I never told her and she...she never knew, and now she's gone and it's...it's too late to say it." A sudden, unexpected wave of pain crashes through the numbness and he chokes on tears that won't come. "She never knew."

"Brother, it's alright." Alphonse blinks back his own tears and reaches out to squeeze Ed's shoulder in fervent reassurance. "She did know. She did, I promise."

"How do you know?" Edward lifts his head at last. Their eyes meet, and Al manages a small smile.

"Because I told her."


"Blah Blah Blah" - Rockapella

Ed wakes up from a long, deeply satisfying nap and hears Al and Winry snickering from the seat across from him. The train screeches to a noisy halt and he winces. "Didn't need that eardrum, anyway," he grumbles, stifling a yawn and sitting up to stretch his arms. The snickering increases.

"What?" he demands, shooting a suspicious glare at them. Al hastily hides something behind his armored back. Winry just points and giggles even harder. Confused and miffed, Edward turns to look out the window - and sees his own face staring back at him from the glass, covered in big, black, scrawling doodles. The offending marker drops to the floor as Al and Winry collapse against each other in howling laughter, immensely pleased with themselves. Until Edward picks it up, grinning devilishly, and pulls the cap off with a sinister pop.

"Al?" Winry whispers, inching out of her seat. "Do you think we should run now?"


"Vanilla Twilight" - Owl City

I wish you were here. Edward signs his name at the bottom, carefully folds the letter and slips it in an envelope, along with a picture of him soaked in seawater and grinning broadly next to his latest adventure...a great white shark, three times his size, hanging high and ready for the upcoming feast. He addresses the back of the envelope slowly, as if to savor the destination he's sending it to; then leans back in his chair with a sigh and gazes out at the starry night, and wonders if she's looking up at it too.

A week later, Winry runs to the mailbox as if her life depends on it, yanks it open and fumbles with the contents inside, blue eyes scanning them all over for the one name she yearns to see. A tiny laugh of delight escapes her lips when she finds it; and she hugs the envelope to her chest, just for a moment, before she tears it open to drink in what's inside.


I admit, I cheated a little with that first drabble (I've had that first paragraph on my hard drive for a while but never did anything with it, so this gave me a good excuse to use it), but I promise I followed the rules with everything else!! xD (Unless going back to fix the spelling and punctuation counts as "editing"...)


Dear pain, it's been a long time.
Remember when you were holding me tight?
I would stay awake with you all night...
