Dead Brown Bunny Drabble-a-thon!

OMG, so this is so cracky, but I just had to do it...

About a week ago, my 4-year-old daughter and bistyboo1974 had this conversation on the phone:

(copied from bisty's LJ):
Ashlyn: I saw a dead bunny. It was brown.
Me: That is so... *thinks hard to come up with the right word* ...funny. *which was SO not the right word*
Ashlyn: You said funny!! Bwahahahahahaha!!

Conversations about dead bunnies typically don't make me laugh, but in this case? I was hysterical!! *still has tears in her eyes*


And then mark_clark made writing a story about a "dead brown bunny" one of the choices on his story poll... so I thought, hey! I have tons of writers on my f-list, from all kinds of fandoms!

So I challenge you -- write me a drabble on any fandom or other situation, real or imagined, that features a dead brown bunny!

And then tell me where you put it. It can be in comments or your LJ, but I'd like to link to it here! Hee. *is a little giddy over the three-day weekend and impending end of school*


And now here's mine:

----
Fandom: Monk

The tufts of brown fur poked slightly between the wire mesh of the hutch. His fingers twitched briefly to smooth it down… but he pulled them back in revulsion, muttering under his breath.

Natalie tilted her head, a slight smile creasing the corners of her mouth. “Is there something wrong, Mr. Monk?” She held out a fresh evidence bag to him.

A dramatic shudder rippled across his shoulders, and he cut his eyes as if even looking at the dead animal would infect him with its decay. “There isn’t a wipe big enough.”

Harry heard a rustle in the grass behind him. He simultaneously spun and sent a jet of green rocketing from his wand. He looked down. A brown rabbit lay dead at his feet. He had killed something. Something small. Just that easily, a life form was dead. He picked up the rabbit to examine. They were the same, he and this rabbit. Very soon, Harry knew, he too would be a dead life form sprawled upon the grass, small and innocent. He pocketed the rabbit in his robes.

*hides*

(that's very bad and fragmenty. But that's what came to mind).

*pokes head in*

Wow, that is one of the best drabbles I have ever seen! The comparison between Harry and something as traditionally innocent as a rabbit is just chilling. And this line:

Very soon, Harry knew, he too would be a dead life form sprawled upon the grass, small and innocent.

*shivers*

Wow, just wow.

Hey, I've been rethinking my original comment to this drabble, and realized that I meant to say creepy in a good way. It makes me shudder to think that Harry could be cut down in the prime of his life, just like that bunny... and I like to feel that way. I'm a sucker for sad stories and tragic endings. :D

That's good. I'm glad you liked it. That's my mind for you, no matter what prompt you give me I'll twist it and make it into something dark.

Poor thing. I'm glad my car hasn't been the instrument of any bunnies' deaths so far...

Oh my god! That drabble rocks! I've only seen a few episodes of Monk, but that captured him perfectly! I love his conflicting OCD urges to smooth the fur and to avoid getting infected. And this:

“There isn’t a wipe big enough.”

ROTFLMAO!

All right, now I'm off to write a drabble about dead bunnies. I'll be back when I'm done! *grin*

Can you believe that's my first piece of Monk writing? It just came to me right after I made the original dead brown bunny plea to my f-list.

But I do plan to write a full-length one sometime soon!

Can't wait to see yours. :D

Seriously? That was amazing! You are obviously destined to write Monk fanfiction. *grin* I can't wait to see the full-length one!

*goes back to drabble pondering*

Now, it's my turn. It's in a form of a poem but doesn't pertain to any fandom what's so ever.

Ode to a Dead Brown Bunny

I think you'll enjoy it.

Oh, I enjoyed, but I think your protagonist enjoyed it a little too much...

LOL!

Hee hee hee - did you see that bistyboo1974's drabble referenced that? LOL.

Yep - she gave me the idea. XD

Great idea. From a fandom called my imagination

All right, here it is, Barb!

Predator

I liked willow_diamond's drabble so much that I went with a character-animal comparison angle, too ... but with Clark! LOL

Whee, this was fun! Thanks for starting this madness. *grin*

(And congrats for getting the hubby on LJ ;p)

Thanks for this one! I was wondering which fandom you'd pick! And thanks for the congrats. I think it's fun to have him here, he's already starting to see the fun.
