Microfic Meme, Diefenbaker-style.

I have decided to try my hand at nos4a2no9's microfic meme. Just to add an extra spin, here are 12 Diefenbaker microfics - 30 words or less of each genre!

The trail was cold, but not as cold as the little girl when they finally found her under the ice.

Pack-Ben said they would chase their prey to the ends of the earth, and they had. The sand blizzard couldn't shake them from Gerard's scent, and neither would the heat.

Turnbull was a gracious host, and an excellent cook. So Diefenbaker was willing to overlook the tentacles.

When Ben warned me the wizard Harry Dresden would be taking refuge in the Consulate that night, he failed to mention the Cat.

My howl echoed back from brick and concrete. There was no one left to howl with me.

No, boss, I've been here, taking a nap, all day. Why do you ask?

First time
I am tied to a sled with leather straps. They itch. He says, "Hup." I lie down in the snow and wait.

A full belly, a roaring fire, pack-Ben and pack-Ray entwined nearby.

I used to hunt, here in Chicago, but Krispy Kremes are tastier than rats, and easier to catch.

He stands frozen long after the plane disappears into the sky, a bearberry caught by first frost. I whine and nudge his hand.

The bitch's heat-scent calls me, pulls me, burns through me, muzzle, brain, and blood. She turns away, panting and open.

Doubly forbidden
Behind glass and under shell
Untasted turtle.

EEEE! The Cat! It's like destiny that they should meet! (pre-Mouse, I take it?)

And bonus haiku!

You rock!

Pre-Mouse, of course. Can't you imagine cynical Iefenbaker taking that eager evil-fighting pup under his, uh, paw, showing him around Chicago?

Thanks, tygermama!

That's...that's just EVIL! Do you have any idea how many stories I owe people right now and you...you...evil, brilliant person!

*runs off to reread the Dresden books, muttering about Dief as Phillip Marlowe*

Untasted turtle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, keerawa, you rock so hard!

*snickers* Thanks, aka.

Oh, I love all of these so much! (Well, except the crossover, which I don't get.)

The UST is hilarious. I can just see Dief's yearning expression. And you wrote dog smut!

The death one is so bleak. I really like it.
Jan. 9th, 2009 02:39 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the smut one was a bit awkward, but I was committed! Diefenbaker sitting there by the tank composing haiku, heh.

That Death one's pretty painful, gotta say. Thanks, luzula!

I am VASTLY amused! Except for "Angst", "Death" and "Hurt/Comfort," which made me a very sad and sniffly Nos indeed. *sobs* But the "First Time" was a really clever inversion of the genre expectations, and "Fluff" made me feel all warm and glowy. So, well, kudos for inspiring ALL of the appropriate reactions, and doing it with a Dief!focus. These were brilliant.

It's all about the emotional reaction.
Jan. 8th, 2009 05:45 pm (UTC)
Oh! Death made my nose go all prickly with sadness. These are all utterly brilliant.
Jan. 9th, 2009 02:54 pm (UTC)
Oh, my nose does that too! *snuggles for comfort*
Jan. 8th, 2009 06:59 pm (UTC)
Diiieeeff! Excellent choice. \o/!

Ow, ow, ow, the Death one! Ow!

But they're all wonderful, and I got a big chuckle out of the Crack and Humor. :)

Also... turtle UST. Bwahaha!
Jan. 9th, 2009 02:55 pm (UTC)
Turtle UST. Hehe. THanks!

Several of those are snuffly, and the crossover and UST ones cracked me up. Thank you!!

Dief's just fun to write. Thanks Rhi!
