Here's another response to a drabble request.

This one is for [livejournal.com profile] kitty_ryan , because I sometimes have an incredibly literal mind.Another Emelan drabble! )

Look, now I have a Beka Cooper icon! (For added geekery, the font is called "Cooper.")  I'm still too sick to go anywhere (just a cold, but an ugly one), and having a hard time making decisions. But I wrote some drabbles.

I'm also still taking drabble requests over here. :)

I'm waiting for one of many ideas to settle down and be ready to grow into a real story, but meanwhile, I feel like I'm getting rusty.

So I'm taking drabble requests! I'll take up to 12; for this exercise, I'm willing to write for any of the fandoms listed in my tags. (If you know I like something that doesn't happen to be listed there, feel free to ask about it. I'll probably be happy to write that, too.)

I'll need the following:

Fandom:
Characters (1 to 4):
Pairing (optional):

"It can't be summer all the time," his sister argued.

"It is, though," answered the boy.

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

"Is --"

"Children!" Ayun stepped between them. "Gwen, go play outside. Lindhall, help me pack your things."

Gwen went, stopping in the doorway to stick her tongue out. Lindhall frowned, but one didn't disobey Ayun. He commanded the rest of his clothing into his trunk.

Ayun glowered at him, hands on her broad hips. "Stop showing off."

"I'm not," he protested. "It's faster..."

"Just watch yourself when you get to the University, nephew. I can't afford sending you to the City of the Gods, but you need the training. This was the only way -- and it means Carthak owns you for at least ten years."

Lindhall stared out the window, face blank, watching the sparrows in the courtyard.

One of the window shutters exploded into twig-sized pieces.

“I know.”

"Goddess, it's hot!" Home at last, Kally gratefully undid her veil.

"It's summer, my dove," Kaddar replied. He looked up -- and stopped dead. "Your hair!"

"This?" Kally touched the back of her head, where her locks had been shorn to the scalp. "It's cooler."

"But you -- my dear --" Kaddar stopped, swallowed, tried again. "What will people say?"

The empress grinned, drawing her veil back up. "No one will see it but you."

Kaddar's lip twitched in irritation.

"I promise to grow it back before our child is old enough to notice."

"Child?" he mouthed silently.

She smiled. “Yes.”
