And you all thought I'd forgotten, just because I haven't written any of these since last May or something like that.

This is for [livejournal.com profile] untrue_accounts, who did not ask me for an insane crossover, and seems to be getting one anyway, because sometimes my brain does that. Um... I just liked the image?

'Ineffable', drabble-and-a-half (150 words), G, silly, Angel Sanctuary/I wouldn't dream of telling you. )

My wife and I were walking in Harvard Square this evening looking for somewhere to eat dinner (we eventually wound up at La Creperie, which made us very happy) and passed a homeless man sitting on the sidewalk. This is a common occurrence in Harvard Square. He had a sign up, informing us that he was a homeless veteran, and he was reading a book, which is also relatively common among the Harvard Square itinerant population. As is my habit, I bent over to scan the title of his book, because I am inveterately nosy about what other people are reading, and then grabbed Ruth's arm. "We have to give that man some money," I said.

"Why?" she quite reasonably asked.

"Look what he's reading," I said.

I actually recognized it before seeing the title, having spent many long and laborious hours with that paperback. His copy was battered and beaten and dirty and obviously used, but still legible.

The Shadow of the Torturer, by Gene Wolfe.

We gave him some money. I feel that anyone who will take time out from collecting change to put food in their mouths in order to read Gene Wolfe deserves a bit of compensation.

He says he intends to go right through them.

Somehow, this makes me very happy.

Well, double-drabble, actually. I'm going to do all the ones on the list (and more if people request them), but not in the request order and interspersed with other entries so the non-fanfic readers won't get screamingly bored.

Purchase, G, 200 words, Cardcaptor Sakura/Petshop of Horrors, requires familiarity with premise of Petshop and basically all of CCS, no spoilers. )

[livejournal.com profile] homasse was kind enough to do me an amazing drabble about Rukia from Bleach, so I am offering drabbles to request, and hopefully it will help jump-start 'Rabbits' again. Request away.
