What is a drabble?  It's just a little snippet of a story of approximately 100 words.  The drabbles collected here are the result of the weekly challenge started by Lady A in April of 2003.  The responses appear on several lists, by a variety of authors.  Each week a new challenge is tossed out and responders have a week to answer.  Most of the authors write responses in a variety of AU's.  The drabbles posted here are those that were focused in the Regent AU created by Debbie M. and Monica M. where the guys are teens at an all boys prep school.  A link to each author's e-mail has been provided by clicking on the author's name with each snippet.  To see the other challenges or the author's other responses to the various challenges please check out the archive at Lady A's Library:  http://lalibrary.net/m7/index.html

The individual authors retain the rights to their stories.  Standard disclaimers apply.  None of the characters are used with malicious intent and no profit is being made by those having fun here.

Note:  If you have a drabble in this AU that might have been missed and would like to have it highlighted here, please let me know.  cinbg@yahoo.com.


Challenge issued June 23, 2003 : Send one or more of the guys hunting. For... whatever.

A Huntin' We Will Go (::cue Elmer Fudd Laugh:: <g>)

By Monica M.

I'm probably over the 100 word limit, but then I don't do well with rules either. <g> Thanks to Debbie for inspiring this and her very strong encouragement to actually post it.

"How can you say that we're all going 'hunting' when we've not all had practice shots?"

"You're not getting a turn, Standish," Clint retorted.

"J.D. got a turn," Ezra pointed out petulantly.

An irritated growl was the immediate response. "Alright! J.D., go set up the cans."

"You're not gonna give him the gun until I come back, are you?" the freshman asked nervously.

"I'm not going to shoot you, J.D.!"

"Won't shoot any cans either," Chris smirked, now standing safely with the other boys behind Ezra and Clint.

"I'll shoot more cans than y'all will shoot deer," Ezra stated.

"Wanna bet?" Vin teased.
