Drabble Meme: Tones of Sepia

Drabble meme ganked from jerico_cacaw: Write a drabble (100 words exactly) based on your current default icon. No changing it! Just write it as it comes; no beta-reading or mulling over. Any fandom or no fandom at all.

The wrinkled, faded photograph in my hand enchanted me.

The reverse held a barely decipherable inscription: "B. Wooster, R. Jeeves, London, 1928." Or was it 1932? I turned the photograph over.

Looking past the blurriness, I drank in their features. There was no family resemblance, but there was something there. The two impeccably dressed men were shoulder to shoulder; the look on each face was a mix of utter contentment and heady defiance as if to acknowledge both profound joy and an attitude of us against the world.

I liked these two, and I regretted that I couldn't know them.

Oh, very nice! Makes me want to try one of these for my own default icon.

Thank you! It was definitely fun to write...you should definitely give a go, old thing! :)

Very lovely! Especially love the bit about heady defiance. I may have to try this myself, though it would end up profoundly silly, I'm sure.

Aw, thank you, m'dear! I thought that defiance phrase fit them perfectly.

I'm hoping your write one for yours; I have an idea of where you could take it. :)

Oh, gorgeous! Yes, that's them completely, and your icon is as well. Lovely icon, lovely drabble! Thank you for this.

Eeee! Thanks, love! I really enjoyed writing this, and it's only part fiction...I really am sorry that I can't get to know these two. :)

That's what I like of well done drabbles, you know? A story is told [or insinuated] without actually being written. The reader can't help but be a part of it, if you know what I mean =).

And I had never noticed before how inspirational icons can be.

I was frankly amazed at how fast this little drabble came out. Of course, when I made the icon a month or so ago, I thought of specifically as a photo that someone today would find of them, so it really wasn't a huge stretch to write. :)

And I, too, was really amazed at how the drabbles turned out. People's creativity is awesome!

*points to icon* This is what I created my default icon from.
