    His friends had pooled their coins and thrust them in his hand and him to her door, giggling drunkenly the whole time, and assuring him, as straight-faced and soberly as they could manage, that it was time for his first visit.

    Summary

    My dear Maturin,
    I’m sure you’ll be happy to hear that my belly continues to grow, this incipient lump of a thing, and the physician Sophie consulted during her own pregnancies is confident in its progress. My little Arabian is settling into the stables on my cousin’s property, and does not seem to mind the confinement. My own confinement, however, is...

    She crumples the page again, jams her pen onto the block until the nib splinters and she has to cut it anew.

     

    (Or, a pregnant Diana Maturin, nee Villiers, spends her confinement at Ashgrove Cottage, writes many letters, and sends one.)

    He never thought the love of his life would be a small, ugly and cantankerous curmudgeon. It was not Sophie, not his ships nor even his duty that made his heart glow. That was right before him.

    The rules

    1: Pick five fandoms characters? books? Whatever seems good. List them in alphabetical order.

    2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

    3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

    4: Bravo! Have a cookie.
