ficlet challenge #1  
Here comes our first ficlet challenge. :-)

theme: first meeting
- can be during Journey's End, the 1st meeting just between them afterwards, or an AU first meeting
- interpret however you like

Write up to 3 ficlets. Other characters can be included as long as Martha and Mickey are in the story.

The ficlets must have a minimum of 100 words and a maximum of 300.

Submit your ficlet(s) in a comment to this post. Comments will be screened.
Please use the following form:

word count:
any additional info? (like what season the drabble is set in, canon or AU, etc)

Do not post your ficlets anywhere else until the challenge + voting have ended.

The challenge ends sunday, August 8th 2010. Voting will go up the next day (if we have enough entries, otherwise the challenge will be extended).

I hope you like the challenge and am looking forward to your entries. ;-)

If it's more than 100 words, it's not a drabble. I'm not a purist on that score (I wrote dozens of not-Drabbles for lifeonmartha after all) but I know you'll piss some people off.

Why not call it a ficlet challenge instead?

Sorry about that. I never saw a definition of drabble anywhere. I've seen drabble challenges in another community and they were called drabbles there even if they were more than 100 words. I honestly had no idea that that was wrong. In addition to that I'm German and simply don't always know the right English words.
Apart from that I don't know why using a word wrong would piss someone off. Anyone can make mistakes after all.

I'll change the challenge and call it ficlet instead of drabble. ;-) Thank you for letting me know that I called it wrong.
