Seasonal and Topical Drabble Challenge
.
Looking through the archives at the BBC’s On This Day, I find the following:

8th April 1986 Clint Eastwood becomes Mayor of Carmel in California

10th April 1998 Northern Ireland peace deal reached - The Good Friday Agreement

And of course, the date of the General Election was announced yesterday.


So this week the prompts are:

Elections and Politicians

Peace

Religious Wars



As usual, don’t wait for me - if you’re inspired, go for 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.

The rules are minimal - One hundred words exactly, and be polite when commenting!
You can write any fandom or original fiction, any pairing or none.
You don’t 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 don’t forget, as long as you are confident that your response meets one of the prompts, that’s good enough for me.

Religious Wars (TDW)

(Link)
They had told him that the Catholics were a threat, that they were cruel and sub-human: Catholic men raped Protestant women and killed their children. It was essential that Ireland be subdued. And so he had followed Cromwell, killed the men, who were just protecting their own, and murdered defenceless women in church. What threat had these people been?

Now he had lost an arm, fighting for the safety of the realm. But he had lost more. He had left England knowing doubts, he was returning feeling not just the pain from his arm, but the pain of betrayed beliefs.
