Knowledge
by Slantedlight

Doyle knew they’d be good together. He’d been watching Bodie for months - the ripple of muscles along his arms in the shower when he reached for the soap, the look in his eyes when someone told a particularly dirty joke, his smile. His arse in those trousers. He’d imagined them together. And then their eyes met when Bodie saw that Doyle had noticed, in admission, in glee, and Doyle knew it was mutual lust.

Doyle knew it was love when he came down for breakfast the morning after, and found the cupboard filled with four different types of muesli.

That's a slightly-edited drabble I posted years ago, because I fancy some Pros-y inspiration today. There should be breakfast, supermarket, a walk somewhere, and writing. A Sunday plan. *g*

Anyone else got an old drabble to post, or a pic they've not shown for a while, or...? It'd be nice to re-visit some of our old Pros-iness - inspiration needed! *g*

This is really just a reminding-me post, although I'm obviously leaving it here for everyone to see... I've been writing drabbles again, and that reminded me that I wrote some nearly a year ago and forgot to send them to the archives or anything, and then I nearly couldn't find them, and... so I'm just gonna post them all here! Some were from a drabble meme based on people's user pics - hope those people don't mind me doing this! Let me know if you do! And the rest of you? Feel free to ignore... *g*

Dribbles of drabbles from the past... )

Having just seen this at [livejournal.com profile] phantomas's place, I realise that I'm in the mood to drabble... There's clearly no point in me doing the meme, cos all I could really offer up, fandom-wise, is Pros, so I'm just gonna offer up drabbles in general...

If anyone'd like a Pros drabble, comment below with some sort of prompt-y word or idea or whatever, and I'll see what I can come up with!

And if anyone'd like any other kind of (non-fandom) drabble, then we can always try that too. *g*

(Cos otherwise, I'm gonna be stuck having to think of things for myself - ack!)

With apologies to my flist who get spammed with my writing-type things twice when I post at [livejournal.com profile] the_safehouse, cos you're mostly all over there as well.

Got to feeling all drabbley yesterday, what with [livejournal.com profile] myrebelcat and [livejournal.com profile] rach74 drabbling at [livejournal.com profile] the_safehouse. So [livejournal.com profile] empty_mirrors and [livejournal.com profile] brenk and I managed to egg each other on enough to do something about it. We generated an allegedly random word each and had to write a drabble for each, connected or unconnected. The words were grim, apathy and reality. And I know I didn't stick so much to the spirit of the words as to the... well... But sometimes they just take you in a weird way, right?

Pros Drabble - Sunburn

For the National Curriculum Pros Holiday Drabble Challenge [livejournal.com profile] empty_mirrors gave me "sunburn". *g*

Sunburn
The sun burned when you were out in it too long, everyone knew that. Bodie knew that. He felt the heat across his skin, soaking in, felt it running with his blood. Straight to his core.

Too late to come into the shade now, the damage was done. He had spent his days basking, had turned his face, his body, his world to the glorious shine of it, and now it was his.

Here they lay, tangled together across the bed, and with every movement their skin enflamed each other anew, and the summer night burned slowly through to day.

Well - just as I got all worked up to post my little fic-thing LJ started having problems with rich text! Argh! And since I have to catch the last bus of the day in 10 minutes, its just not gonna happen now after all. *sigh grumble grump waste of nervous energy...*

On the bright side, I get to go home now and play with this week's challenge...

And pretty new icons... : )

Must find somewhere to tell me the difference between things like drabbles and ficlets though. Is a ficlet bigger than a drabble?! It sounds as though it should be somehow - a drabble should be less than a page long, a ficlet longer and yet not actually a short story as such... hmmn...
