Round Five - Fic  
Hey, everyone! Time has come for the prompt post to be closed and the writing of fic to begin.

Some Rules/Guidelines for Submission and Feedback:

1. Drabbles should be submitted by commenting on this post. There is no word minimum or maximum. If your fic doesn't fit in one comment (about 4300 characters), that's perfectly fine. Just post an excerpt of your fic and a link to the rest of the story elsewhere.

2. You need to use a subject line for your submissions.

The format you should use is: Title, Prompt, Rating. Example: That's How I Was Raised And I Turned Out TV, The Simpsons reruns, PG

3. Each drabble should be submitted as a new comment to this post.

4. Anyone can submit as many drabbles as they'd like, using any prompts, even your own. More than one person can submit for the same prompt.

5. Feel free to cross-post submissions elsewhere. Just make sure you let others know you wrote if for this drabble-a-thon.

6. If you like what you've read, please take the time to tell the author. Comments are like crack to fanfic writers. We can never get enough. (Please be sure to reply to the comment in which the author posted their drabble, not to this original post, so the author receives your feedback.)

7. Absolutely no flames of any kind will be tolerated in this community. This is supposed to be fun. Read the subject line before reading, and simply skip over something that appears not to be to your liking or rating preference.

The deadline for Round Five Submissions will be on September 23rd. Go on and write, everyone.

I Make The Future, new glasses, PG
“Good Morning Lemon! Wait... is there something different about you?”
“Me? Uh... No. Why?”
“You look different.”
“I... I don’t think I do.”
“Split ends, bad style, hair is the same.”
“Gee, thanks.”
“Clothes, still rumpled and ugly.”
“And cheap.”
“Ok, I think you can stop now.”
“There’s something... What is it?”
“God Jack. Nothing. Leave me alone.”
“Look Lemon, about this morning-“
“Forget it Jack.”
“I wasn’t trying to offend you.”
“You don’t need to try Jack, you succeed without effort.”
“There’s no need to be like that when I’m trying to apologise.”
“Well, you don’t need to apologise.”
“Good, because I’m not going to.”
“Get out of my office then.”
“Shut up Lemon.”
“Jack, I’m-“
“Lemon, leave it.”
“Now you’re pissed off with me?”
“Oh right, that’s why you’re making me chase you down the corridor. Because you’re obviously so fine with me that you totally aren’t running from me are you?”
“Don’t be sarcastic.”
“Don’t be an idiot.”
“I see I pay you for your maturity.”
“If I tell you what’s different can we just forget this day happened?”
“Depends if you tell me the truth or not.”
“Yes, because I’m going to lie, because spending another day with you acting like a passive aggressive Chihuahua is my idea of heaven Jack.”
“Fine. You aren’t going to lie. But I figured it out anyway.”
“You did?”
“You did.”
“Uh huh. Glasses.”
“When did you-“
“About 3 seconds after I saw you in the lift this morning.”
“So this whole day-“
“I found it amusing to wind you up, I wanted to see how long before you cracked.”
“You’re such a jerk Jack.”
“Many people have told me that, I struggle to care about it. Good night Lemon.”

Re: I Make The Future, new glasses, PG
ha! I like Jack when he's a jerk. (Well, when he's an amusing jerk.) Nice job on this. :)

Re: I Make The Future, new glasses, PG
EEEEHEEE :) I like the end of this. And "passive aggressive Chihuahua" amuses me cos I have one and I like to think of Jack yelping at her like mine yelps at me!

Re: I Make The Future, new glasses, PG
I work in a Pet Shop and we get a few customers bringing their Chihuahua's in when they're shopping and they are always so funny! They're tiny but have such big personalities!
I've got a Border Terrier and he's collapsed snoring at my feet right now but when I wrote this little fic he kept barking at me so I thought I'd include a little nod to him.
Thanks for reading and I'm glad you enjoyed it

Re: I Make The Future, new glasses, PG
I've put my dog in fics too. I thought that was strange but I'm not the only one I see :)
