How does one evoke, in 100 words, the same amount of emotion/angst/hilarity/entertainment as one does in a multi-chapter, epic piece of fan fiction? Drabbles are arguably one of the most difficult forms of Fan Fiction to get right. But it can be done, because I've seen it happen. Some of the best House MD fiction I've ever read have been done in this form, and that just proves that the calibre of our fandom's writing is top notch!

What the heck is a drabble?
From Wikipedia: A drabble is an extremely short work of fiction exactly one hundred words in length...The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
It's a challege I urge you to attempt. It can really test your abilities as an author!
A few basic rules:
1. Let's keep this community friendly! I have every intention of keeping this place unmoderated, for the most part, but if I get wind of any flaming or ship bashing or any other such nonesense, I may have to rethink it. Authors really put themselves out on a limb by posting their work online, so let's be respectful.
2. Please make sure you post the following along with your drabble.
Title: Author: Pairing: (if any) Rating:
You may include warnings, author's notes, or summaries if you wish. Please, please, PLEASE specify if your drabble contains ANY sexual or highly violent content, and put those under a cut. I really don't want anybody to be offended by anything they find here, but I also don't want to censor any of the authors.
3. Drabbles MUST BE EXACTLY 100 WORDS! This is a place for drabbles in the truest sense of the word.
4. Have fun, and tell your friends! And look forward to some special events coming up in the coming month!
