Hi, and welcome to the third Seasonal and Topical Drabble Thingy!
Top of the list this morning, and therefore our first prompt, would seem to be
In other news:
On 11th February 1975 Margaret Thatcher was elected leader of the Conservative Party(*)
On 14th February 1984 Torvill and Dean won the Gold with Bolero.
On 11th February 1990 Nelson Mandela was freed
(*)For those of you who don't know our political system, this did not make Mrs Thatcher Prime Minister immediately. In essence it meant that she was guaranteed to become Prime Minister if/when the Conservatives won the next General Election.
(On 6th February there was an anniversary of major significance to Gene, but if you check out the stories for this week you'll see why I'm staying well away from death anniversaries).
So the prompts from the news today are:
A Hole in My Arse
Dancing on Ice
I’ll be having a go later on this morning, but in the meantime, if you’re interested, have at it!
Post your drabble as a comment to this post, and if you have any ideas for future seasonal prompts, let me know by PM. I may also use the occasional completely random prompt if something occurs to me.
You can write any fandom or original fiction, any pairing or none.
You don’t even have to write in English if you don’t want to.
Please note that if you do choose to write in another language, I can't promise to comment beyond a simple "Thank You", although I will do my best via Google! A rough translation would be lovely, but is not essential. The translation does not have to be 100 words, nor does it need to be polished or “good English”. Just the gist is fine, to put across the idea.
And so long as you are confident that your response meets one of the prompts, that’s good enough for me!
