Sheldon And Amy, 100-Word Drabbles

Hey guys!

 

So a few of us had talked about 100-word fics and how they're great for some people (like me) who don't have a whole lot of time to write (or read), because the writers don't have to commit a whole lot of time to write them, and the readers don't have to commit a whole lot of time to read them. We can just appreciate bite-sized little Shamy scenes that are a lot of fun to write and read.

 

I thought it'd be cool to have a thread where we can share them with each other, or give each other ideas. Anyone game?

 

Here's an example of one I wrote for the prompt "Amy helps Sheldon to tie a tie," from bookie-yan on Tumblr:

 

"Look, it’s simple. You just make the number four, then tuck this behind, pull the material through the loop, then back around and through the fold you just made."

 

Sheldon stares. “Do you remember when I tried to teach Penny how to solve a Rubik’s cube and she just wasn’t getting it?” he asks.

 

"Yes."

 

Sheldon lifts the tie. “Rubik’s cube,” he says, then points to himself, “Penny.”

 

Amy giggles and pulls the tie from his collar. “Well if you’re not getting it, then I have a better idea.”

 

She drops the tie to the floor and unbuttons his shirt.

 

All right, who's next? (To write a fic, not to unbutton your shirt. But I mean, if you want to do that too, I won't stop you. We're all friends here.)

I remember you mentioning this at the Vixen's tapings. I like bite sized stories! And my shirt was a little uncomfortable anyway. This story is because of your GIF.

 

 

"I've written Star Trek fan fiction, have you ever wrote anything?"

 

"Er...I might have wrote a story or two."

 

"About what?"

 

"Little House fan fiction."

 

"Well that doesn't interest me at all."

 

"Yeah, you wouldn't care for it."

 

"Why would someone read about quilting bees and barn raising when they can read about space and the future?

 

"Well some people like the historical setting. Others may like the raw senuality of a man and a woman exploring each others bodies and souls."

 

She blushed.

 

"Little House?"

 

She nodded.

 

"On the Prarie?"

 

Another nod.

 

"They seemed so wholesome."

 

She shrugged.

 

100-word AND dialogue-only (mostly!). My two favorite kinds of fic! :laugh: Love it!

Isn't the world just full of coincidences?  I had never heard of Drabbles before, then yesterday I was reading a book of short stories and included were a number of 'Drabbles'.  Now I see this thread.  

 

I love the idea of these short snip-its and find it amazing how you guys can get so much into so few words.

Two more I wrote for Tumblr.

 

 

 

 

anonymous asked: Will you write a fic about sheldon fully checking amy out and the guys end up noticing? Thankyouuu x

 

Look at her. Her slightly curved posture that holds her frame, the gentle way she cradles a teacup in her delicate fingers, sipping Darjeeling through her beautiful lips. Her long, bare legs that stretch high up to her perfectly-shaped –

 

The sound of the boys snickering pulls Sheldon out of his reverie. He snaps his attention away from Amy at the kitchen island and towards his friends on the couch beside him. “What’s so funny?”

 

They all stop laughing as they consider one another. Howard’s face immediately falls into a smirk. “I don’t think he realizes he was talking out loud.”

 

 
 
 

 

astrophantomplanet asked: Prompt for Shamy: They're in charge of/are at the store buying wine for the group's next dinner party. Sheldon is very much against this task.

 

"Why can’t we just buy this one?"

 

Sheldon reaches for the Pinot Grigio, but Amy slaps his wrist away. “That’s white.”

 

"So?"

 

"Leonard and Penny are making chicken marsala."

 

Sheldon stares.

 

"I refer you to my former question."

 

"White is too subtle for a heavy sauce entrée, we need a supple red."

 

She reaches for the bottle beside it, a Pinot Noir. Sheldon scoffs.

 

"You just made that up."

 

"Penny’s taught me a great deal about wine and its effects," Amy defends. Then murmurs, "So have you."

 

"What was that?" Sheldon asks.

 

"Nothing," Amy sings. "I’ll tell you after dinner."

I just love these 100-word drabbles. I wish I could write one, but it would literally be the worst thing anyone has ever read. Kudos to all of you who have written them and please keep them coming.

 

I don't believe you! I think you should write one to back up that assertion. ;)

I suspect you are underselling yourself.

Try writing something that sounds a bit salacious and intriguing, but with an innocent explanation.

You can't go far wrong with that.

How about the other way round? I would also love to read something innocent sounding with a salacious explanation;-)
