Sorry about the delay, I didn't see inktail's post before now.

Three quotes, and the first comes with this dubious piece of encouragement: Whatever you write with that quote will be better than the book it came out of. I promise. If I had it as an e-book I would MST its little brain out.

"He nodded at the scattered files to his right."

"Keep the knife out, and hold my arm."

"It should be down, but it's up."

shy_dramaqueen is the winner!
The only one to answer the challenge, actually, but her work was still excellent. I loved both Quest and Victory, though I might say that I liked Quest just a little better.

"Maybe we won't change the world, but at least we'll feel better." -- Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss

"Don't you realize, haven't you often felt, that I am partly evil myself?" -- Endless Night, by Agatha Christie.

"There's a fight just waiting." -- "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky", by Stephen Crane

Great job, shy_dramaqueen!

And there I was wondering if anyone would post another entry.

The winner is inktail's Robbery - wonderfully efficient exposition and resolution.


The quotes were all from various works by Sarah Kane.

"Don't, I'll have to shoot you. Then I'd be lonely." is from Blasted.

"You don't talk about anything else any more." is from Phaedra's Love.

"There is a knock on the bathroom door." is from the script to Skin.


I can guarantee that neither of you put them to as twisted a use as in the original contexts. That is probably a good thing. ;)

Sorry, even after two responses, it took me so long to pick!

The quotes were:
"She was very white now, white to the lips."
and 
"What do you mean by wrong?"
     Both were from "Towards Zero", by Agatha Christie.

Winner: radendaren's "Silly People"

Both of the drabbles were great, but radendaren's took me by surprise with such an unusual use of the quote. Good job to both radendaren and shy_dramaqueen, and congratulations radendaren!

I'm sorry, delayed posts seem to be turning into a bad habit of mine. -.-

Quote: "Lend me your wings, bird."
Book: The Gunslinger
Author: Stephen King
Winner: inktail's Bird's Eye View

Between the originality of radendaren's beautifully poetic meta drabble and the sudden "eep" of inktail's murder of small fluffy creatures... well, I don't know what it says about me that the latter made the biggest impression. ^^;

This isn't just any challenge, driblettes. (dribblers... driblablers... blarblid... people) This week it's Halloween. And if you live in a place at all similar to my corner of Norway, this means... not much. There might be dressing up. But here, there will be drabbles. And I thought "hey, how 'bout some scary drabbles?" So I tried to find some open-yet-potentially-shiverydrabble-causing quotes. Make me proud!

(And if you want to write about ballet dancers and circus elephants and granite wombs in which nothing scary whatsoever happens - do it! Go dribbdrabbellettes!)


"Lend me your wings, bird."

or

"What would you be afraid of?"

or

"The boy shrieked aloud in the granite womb."

The winner is shy_dramaqueen's Peeping Pause! I liked the subtle way the scene was described and the progressive revelation of the characters.

The quotes were:

"Some people are always in such a hurry."
The Avenger of Perdónaris by Lord Dunsany


"There are some secrets which do not permit themselves to be told."
The Man of the Crowd by Edgar Allan Poe


"The horror of the experience deepened with every dragging second."
Under the Pyramids by HP Lovecraft

(Yes, I know that Dunsany, Poe, Lovecraft are a progression of Strange in chronological order. But those were the books I had on hand! :D)
