    • It was a typical day in Double Potions. Professor Snape prowled the classroom, intent on preventing his half-witted students from killing themselves.

      “Potter,” Snape purred menacingly, “do you know what happens when you mistakenly add too much tincture of benzoin to a simple Pepper-Up potion?”

      The boy-who-lived-to-flub-potions began sullenly, “No, Professor, I–”

      “KABLOOOEYOOM!!!”

      Professor Snape glared at the corner of the room that had just exploded in noxious fumes.

      “Ah, thank you for demonstrating, Mr. Longbottom.”

      The classroom held its collective breath as the Potions Master cleaned up the toxic sludge with a whispered “Scourgify”.

      “Fifty points from Gryffindor.”

      • ::chuckle:: I love Neville way more than anyone ever should… thank you! It even had the right “feel” and that’s hard to do at 100 words exactly.

        Thank you! ::cheers::

    • What was a Super Soldier to do?

      Steve Rodgers, all-American hero, with his all-American hair and physique and chiseled jaw, uncharacteristically slumped down in his chair. He stared disconsolately at the screen before him as pop-up after pop-up blossomed.

      “Janet?” his all-American voice rang through the base, and moments later the diminutive super-heroine sauntered into the room.

      “What’s wrong, Cap?” she asked, noticing his disgruntlement.

      “That,” he pointed at the screen. Scanning the list of sites, she burst out laughing.

      Steve Rodgers–NUDE.NUDE.NUDE!!!!!
      XXXCAPTAIN-AMERICAXXX
      —CREAMY—SUPER—SERUM—
      AVENGERS UNDRESSED

      “Well,” she said, chuckling, “I see you found my favorite bookmarks”.

    • After I wrote this, the Fox reminded me that I got my Nick Fury’s mixed up, so this ended up being a Secret Wars/West Wing crossover drabble, rather than Ultimates. Ah well…

      “Sir…we still haven’t addressed the Fury situation.”

      “Ah, yes. The Furies. Alecto, Megaera and Tisiphone,” Leo McGarry got that look on his face, the one that indicated that Jed Bartlet’s pedantism was only tolerated because he was the President.

      “Did you know the Greeks believed that the Furies enforced crimes of ethics. When the state couldn’t or wouldn’t intervene, or when no law had been created to deal with it, the Furies would administer justice.”

      “Sir, I don’t see what it has to do with this situation. I’m talking about Colonel Nick Fury—”

      Bartlet smiled “So was I, Leo.”

    • I hope you enjoy this…actually, it’s more songfic parody than drabble, but I did manage to get it to 100 words (including the title).

      A Wand’ring Jedi, I
      (Mikado/Star Wars filk)

      A wand’ring Jedi, I, a thing of Light and Dark Sides
      Of robes and codes and force guides
      and midichlorians high

      My lightsaber is long
      though I let passion recede
      the dark side’s path ‘tis indeed
      I meditate all night long
      I meditate all night long

      Have you been stuck on Tatooine
      And is your father mean?
      Oh, Vader, Vader

      Are you at war with Palpatine?
      Are you an angsty teen?
      Oh, Vader, Vader

      We all loved Kasdan’s work
      Preferred Vader to Kirk
      But Lucas that jerk
      Ruined the prequels
      Oh, Vader, Vader
