It's May 1st and time for a new challenge. This month it's a quote from Lao Tzu:

"Being deeply loved gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage."

This month we'll have the full 31 days to post our drabbles!

And don't forget you are welcome to post drabbles for previous challenges. :-)

So, a merry month of May and happy writing everyone!

Happy April everyone!

I apologize for being late with this month's challenge and I won't waste your writing time any longer.

Dennis Hopper was recently honored with his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His close friend, Viggo Mortensen, gave a wonderful speech about him and closed with this poem by William Stafford:

For My Young Friends Who Are Afraid

There is a country to cross you will
find in the corner of your eye, in
the quick slip of your foot--air far
down, a snap that might have caught.
And maybe for you, for me, a high, passing
voice that finds its way by being
afraid. That country is there, for us,
carried as it is crossed. What you fear
will not go away: it will take you into
yourself and bless you and keep you.
That's the world, and we all live there.

The poem is our prompt for the month. Take it as a whole, or in pieces, or on a single word. We have until April 30th to post our stories.

Have a wonderful April and happy writing, all!

Title~ "In the Bleak Midwinter"
Challenge~December 2009
Word Count~498
Warnings~Pre and post movie canon(character death)
Disclaimer~ Nothing you recognize belongs to me, I make no profit from this
 A/N   Many Pagan religions incorporated some form of ancestor worship/veneration and I recall reading (a loooong time ago!) about an ancient Eastern European Midwinter custom of lighting fires on the graves of the dead and feasting “in the company of the ancestors”. And since Eastern Europe encompasses a great deal of what was once Sarmatia, well…my fevered imagination supplied the rest. Happy Holidays to all!

October 5th, 2009

Hello, everyone. It is October and time for a new challenge.

I've been reading about the United States Air Force's elite combat search and rescue teams called Pararescuemen. Affectionately called PJ's (pararescue jumpers) these are the guys that special forces units call on when they need rescue. PJ hopefuls spend two arduous years in training learning combat skills and tactics of US special forces such as the Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and Green Berets. They can fit into any of these operations. But what makes them unique is that they are also paramedics highly trained and experienced in treating combat wounds and trauma cases. Their main purpose is to rescue, treat, stabilize, and evacuate soldiers from combat zones and will do whatever it takes to saves lives, including sacrificing their own.

The words that every PJ lives by are this month's challenge: "That Others May Live".

We have until October 31st to post stories. Happy writing!

"His Will"

arthur - so be it: brn_gamble
FIC: "His Will"
AUTHOR: mistressmarilyn
DATE: September 29, 2009
FANDOM: "King Arthur" (2004 movie)
DISCLAIMER: I don't own 'em. They belong to Touchstone Pictures, to the respective actors of the Jerry Bruckheimer movie, and to the ages. This is a work of a fan, done for no remuneration save the satisfaction of the work.
WARNINGS/RATING: A bit slashy, maybe . . .
SUMMARY: Alecto has returned to Britain, now 18, to live in King Arthur's newly formed Court. This is a sequel to my (ambitious) story Alecto, written five years ago this month. (!)
AUTHOR NOTES: Written for round_table500, inspired by the reference to a quote from St. Francis of Assisi, a profligate-turned-ascetic who began his legendary religious career reluctantly. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, his biographers tell us that the night before Francis set forth in battle, he had a strange dream in which he saw a vast hall hung with armor all marked with the Cross. "These," said a voice, "are for you and your soldiers." St. Francis once said: There are beautiful and wild forces within us. (Even in such serious and circumspect characters as Arthur and Alecto.)
