Ooh, this meme is neat!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a drabble with the same first line as one of my stories, and leave it in my comments here. Any fandom, any pairing or gen, and you can interpret "drabble" as loosely as you want.

I tried to pick the most general opening lines I could find, but a couple are fandom specific.



At once, the congenial sounds of the room disappeared, leaving behind a tense and heavy silence.

He had to see him.

Vir was early.

They say I should introduce myself, but I don't really know what to say or how to begin.

I wonder whether believing in fate, in destiny, has actually doomed us to our current circumstance.

It’s funny how the most random things pass through your mind when you’re lying awake, too nervous to let sleep take you.

Vir Cotto knows the power of touch.

When I was little, I daydreamed about being hugged.

I am feeling well, though a little tired, this morning.

As the sun touches the waves, it fills the horizon with a shimmering pink light that fades to a deep violet as it reaches up into the heavens.

Here ya go!

I am feeling well, though a little tired, this morning. Thank you for asking, Lord Vinta. You're not looking too well yourself. A bit green. I suppose I'll have to have someone take you away. And I think you're one of my favorites. I even brought your daughter in to see you, but was she grateful? No. Little minx starts shrieking and howling. You'd think she'd be happy to see her dear old father once more.

Where was I? Ah. Tired. I don't think any of you realize how much work it is, being Emperor. Every little thing. That Narn, taking up everybody's time like that with his silence. Mollari and that aide of his looked nearly as tired as I felt. But no doubt they'll be sleeping late this morning, while I--I, the emperor--must rise early to see that the sun comes up. It almost didn't, yesterday. The sky was quite dark when I woke, and the sun kept me waiting nearly half an hour. There won't be any of those tricks when I'm a god.

You know, Vinta, I was almost thinking of making your daughter a goddess with me? I was very pleased with her, up until that disgraceful display she put us all through in here. Now it's all one more tiresome detail. If some girl hangs herself after I've graced her with my presence, is it my fault? Why do they come after me asking for explanations? Silly bitch was mad. She fooled us for a while, but everyone knows mad people can be cunning.

I don't care for the way you look at me, Vinta. You don't have to be here, you know. You could be out on a pike in the courtyard. I could replace you easily. In fact, sometimes I think Mollari would be more use to me in here. But then I wouldn't have him around to see to details, like that stupid girl and that useless Narn. Oh, don't quarrel with me, Lord Vinta. I'm so tired this morning, and you're always so understanding.

Muahaha. How delightfully evil. ;)

CARTAGIA!!!

*ahem* sorry It would seem someone else has been bitten by the Cartagia bug!
