A bit OT, maybe ~

I've been spending some time over the holidays playing Virtual Village 3, where little villagers live, procreate, age and, ultimately die.

I started off with a Jack, a Bruce, a Rachel and a Racetrack. Only Racetrack still lives in the game, and he's elderly now, fyi.

I wanted to share a photo of my little Jack, after he had aged a great deal and finally become the Village chief, burying his beloved Bruce. (Get the tissues ready!)

I thought I'd share this telegram I've saved for more than 20 years, from a Christmas I'll never forget.

Challenge #3

It's past time for another challenge. This one will last the rest of December, and again we'll give everyone a couple of options.

You can write a 100, 200, 300, 400 or 500-word drabble. Or you can write a ficlet of up to 2,000 words based on one of the following topics:



Feel free to write more than once; do something based on both of the topics, if you want. Feel free to write a series of drabbles or ficlets based on one or both. Feel free to write whatever you feel fits the subject matter. We'll welcome whatever you write. Remember, we want to read fiction set in the Gotham Newsies universe.

And, of course, you can still write a drabble based on Challenge #1: Food or Challenge #2: Autumn and Thanksgiving. And we'd love to have other Gotham Newsies discussions and/or fiction, as well. (Hope to see some new characters making appearances in your stories!)

If you forget to tag, I'll do it for you.

Have fun and stay warm! Thanks for participating!


Drabble: Busman's Holiday

Sorry this is so late. I definitely wanted to write something for this challenge. It doesn't really allude to the newsies, so I hope it fits.

Two Drabbles

I wrote these two drabbles for the batfic100 drabble community, but I was inspired by this community, so I thought I'd share. These don't fit into either of the current challenge topics (sorry!). (I guess I need some tags added ~ thanks!)

Nov. 21st, 2008

Was curious as to what the Gotham Newsies universe was exactly.  Have browsed and have found several crossover fics.  Do they have to cross over, or can they be strickly in the original Newsies 'verse?  Have enjoyed the fics I've read so far!
