101 things to miss about Jersey
"Wait, that doesn't even make sense."

"Shuttap and listen, then"

"No, seriously, how could you miss summer in a place that's always warm?"

"No, SERIOUSLY, shut up and listen. It's not just a matter of the weather, it's the changes that happen. And yeah, partly because of the weather, because you know - you KNOW that it's temporary, right, and you have to get out and enjoy it while you can."

"Okay, I guess I can see how that makes a difference..."

"But more than that, and don't think I missed that lack of, you know, shutting up there; more than that, it's the kids. With airfares and all that, the tourist population mostly adds adults, but in Jersey, summer is about the schools letting out and the kids flooding in. The neighborhood pools open, and they're filled with screaming hellions. The parks fill up, the stoops are full."

"Like you'd let Gracie sit on a stoop without an armed gaurd."

"More shutting up, please. And with such a big change in the length of the days, the neighborhood becomes a different place. Summer in Jersey is walking home from the PATH station, and instead of dark streets or, uh, some lights on from the kids, as they finish their homework before bed; instead it's walking past post dinner pickup games or kids rushing home before they miss dinner. Hearing families through the open windows, smelling the smoke, the barbeque on the patios. Summer in Jersey is one of the things I miss, even with your freakish year-round warmth."

"Huh... Do moms lean out the window and scream for their kids, like that comercial, you know with the lady who's all 'ANTHO-'"

"The shutting up, babe, PLEASE try it."

I cheated... I looked at all the prompts posted so far before I started writing. Hah. But, this means, that this and the next three will all be part of a whole. Oh, and it's a quadruple drabble, but I doubt you'll complain.

Summer

July was hot. And he meant hot, like Africa hot, oven on broil hot, just plain hot. He never thought anything could be worse than those Texas summers he’d endured growing up, but despite the distinct lack of humidity, the desert summer was hotter than the devil’s balls and nearly as sweaty. Zeklos stepped out of the building and looked around until his eyes settled on Reyes, a small smile gracing his full lips.

“It took you long enough,” Zayne grumped, coming over to take one of the large, clear plastic cups out of his partner’s hands. “God, I’m thirsty.”

Andrej watched him take the straw between his lips, sucking down a long draw of the crisp iced tea in the cup. “Tastes that good, does it?”

Feeling Zeklos’ eyes on him, Reyes released his death grip on the straw and grinned. “I was parched, man. It’s freaking hot out here today.”

“Same as it was yesterday,” Andrej pointed out, taking a sip from his own tea. “Just as it will be tomorrow, too.”

“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he grumbled, knowing the Romanian was right. “But one question – why is my tea purple?”

Zek’s eyes danced in the bright, Nevada sun. “It’s pomegranate blueberry green tea, Zayne. I thought it was time to expand your horizons a bit.”

“Well, you’ve done that,” he agreed, taking another sip. “But how is it purple? I mean, blueberries are a purplish blue, but pomegranates are red and green tea is well, green.”

Shrugging, Zeklos shook his cup, the crushed ice making slushy noises as he did. “No idea, Reyes. One of the many mysteries of life.”

“Maybe,” he said. “Yours is red though, what did you get?”

“Tropical Passion,” Andrej laughed. “It seemed fitting for a day like today.”

“Is it any good?”

“It’s very good, would you like a sip?” They both knew Reyes would take the offer, simply because he never refused an offer of food, drink or sex.

“It is good, but I think I like this one better,” Zayne proclaimed after a long draw on Zeklos’ tea. “I do have to say, I’m really digging these purple straws, too.”

“You are such a child, Zayne.”

“But you love me?”

“Yes, I love you,” Andrej admitted, although they both were already well aware of the fact. “Even when I hate you, I still love you.”

“Good,” Zayne said, tugging on Zeklos’ arm. “Let’s keep it that way. Back to work?”

Zeklos sighed. “Back to work.”

Here is a link to my Little drabble http://ss-sanctuary.livejournal.com/55529.html

It's Wallander, the Swedish Detective played by either Rolf Lassgård - Krister Henrikson or Kenneth Branagh.

Would anyone want to beta it for me (it means any of those I post) you will be virtual hugged by me and make me happy.

Summer Lovin' (H50 High School AU, Danny/Steve, PG)
so...this turned out to be 270 words. oops?

Steve looked up from the soda he was drinking when a shadow fell over him. He didn't think his dad would already be back from getting their hot dog.

"You're in my spot," the person said.

Steve looked around, then back at the guy. "Don't see a name here. Don't see a reserved sign anywhere."

"Don't care," the guy said. "This is my spot, now shove off!"

Steve raised an eyebrow and was about to speak when cool hand landed on his shoulder and slid down his arm. "Why don't you shove off, Mikey!" the guy said. "We've been here long before you got out of bed."

The guy - Mikey - glared at Steve and the guy sitting next to him before stalking off. "You gotta be careful with these Boardwalk Hooligans. You give them an inch and they think they own you."

"Boardwalk hooligans?" Steve questioned.

"That they are," the guy said. "I'm Danny by the way." He held out his hand, which Steve shook. "This is your first time here, right?"

"I'm Steve, and yeah. Is it that obvious?"

Danny grinned. "Not really. But I've been coming here every summer with my family...and a lot of the same families comes down too."

"I'm visiting family with my dad and sister," Steve said.

Danny nodded. "The little girl who was playing with my brother. She's a talkative one."

"Sorry about that," Steve groaned. "Dad always said she got our mom's mouth and I got everything else."

Danny shrugged. "Nothing I'm not used to. I got three other siblings...we talk a lot."

Steve snorted. "Somehow that doesn't surprise me."

Decided to start with number one, get them all posted in their proper place and then move them all over to my journal.

First Christmas ~ McDanno ~ 100 words ~ no beta

Danny walked outside and shook his head. “Ma? Why's it so warm? It's Christmas.”
His mother did nothing but laugh.
“It's not funny.”
“You live in Hawaii, Daniel.”
“I know, but when I'm home for Christmas it is not supposed to feel like summer. Where's the snow?” Danny wished he'd brought at least one pair of shorts along with him.
“Maybe Mother Nature wanted Steve to feel at home on his first visit here with you.”
As if on cue, the door opened and Steve walked outside. He slung his arm over Danny's shoulder. “Beautiful weather this year, isn't it?”
