These are all excellent short stories, espcially as you must have written them with short notice and with no regard to whether the characters appeal to you (ISTR you saying that you didn't like Ron at all).

On the other hand, I've noticed a tendency here to refer to stories as "drabbles", despite a drabble being defined as a story with exactly 100 words. Do you know where new convention came from?

Kokopelli replied:

The interactive nature of the drabble challenge (usually posted on something like FaceBook or LiveJournal) was getting the prompt and then writing something in response.  If  you know the characters well enough, it works.  Yes, the original drabbles were 100 words, but I'm not all that fussy about counting.

Oops, missed this one on the TLOS read through, too. Lot's of fun glimpses. I think I've read everything of yours on this site now... Thanks for posting.

Nothing like blindsiding Ron completely. Neat, I like it. Thanks for posting it.

Heh, you're slowly working your way through your household. Is this the decennial Kokopelli cleanup? :-)

I liked the Kreacher drabble. At long last, a credible reason for H/G!! *ducks* :-)

I love the ending to the Beckman piece; a neat sort of non sequitur which is a bit startling at how it throws back to the start ... until one thinks about it after the shock. Nice one. It's a great line/close which quite grew on me this time 'round.

Finally, I love that conclusion to Making Change. It amazes me that you thought that the ending of the story proper was actually the H/Hr conclusion!?! Nuh uh! Not even close mate. *This* is what we wanted. "A friendship that's caught fire" - that must be one of the most masterful summaries of H/Hr out there. I'm glad the Livejournal person who requested this drabble - an incredibly intelligent, cultured, sophisticated and all round wonderful bloke no doubt - thought to ask you for it. :-)

Interesting chapter

Ah, the good old days. The days of Neville/Luna, before Rowling semi-forced her interview pseudo-canon across the globe.

There was some H/G here too, of which I don't read much these days, but luckily you had two types of H/G here, and I found the final version much more palatable. :-)

I love your Luna. You just can't go wrong with Luna. :-)

Kokopelli replied:

Luna a so hard to write - as can be seen by the myriad bad stories that make me want to stuff cotton in my ears & tape my eyes shut.

This is really an interesting little bit of drabble. It was fun. I like it! Thanks for sharing and updating. I was beginning to think you guys were done writing. I've been waiting for a long time for Bobmin and several others on this site to update. I'm beginning to think some of them are done. I hope not. All of you are great writers and I have enjoyed everthing you have written. Thanks again. Patches

Bobmin posted some stuff on FF.net - I haven't a clue why he's not updating here.
