Summary: "Colonel Jolys sat down by the telephone after dinner, ready to answer immediately if anyone should ring. But a full stomach and a hot day conspired against him, and though he would never have admitted it, he fell into a doze. The jangling telephone bell woke him with a start."

Author's Notes: No, I hadn't forgotten this drabble series, though it has been a long time - sorry! I hope there won't be such a long gap between this and the next one.
Thanks to Solo2863 of fanfiction.net for pointing out out that 'railway station' would be more appropriate, and 'younger' son correct :)
Summary: "Titty looked around frantically, hoping Roger would appear soon. She didn’t want to go without saying goodbye to him, but she wanted to find her train as quickly as possible."

Rating: PG
WIP: Complete/500 words
Main Characters/Pairings: Titty Walker, Dick Callum
Genre: Friendship/Romance
Spoilers: None
Summary: "The trouble with Dick, Titty thinks grumpily, is that he gets so absorbed in everything"
Author's notes: Second in my 50x500 Swallows and Amazons challenge. Yes, Titty and Dick have unfortunate nicknames. Can't be helped.
Question: when doing a prompt challenge, does one generally use the prompts as titles or not?

WIP: Complete/500 words
Main Characters/Pairings: Ruth "Nancy" Blackett, Margaret "Peggy" Blackett, Maria Turner, Mary "Molly" Blackett
Genre: Family
Spoilers: None
Summary: "Storms were scary, but an angry Great Aunt Maria was worse."
Author's notes: First in my personal 50x500 Swallows and Amazons Challenge: 50 500-word S&A fics, to rescue at least a little of my brain from the bunnies :P Also, the fandom needs more love!
Ruth "Nancy" Blackett is refered to as Ruth throughout this fic; in my personal canon, she doesn't adopt the nickname until later on, in the year before the first book in the series. I'm happy to back up the choice with canon, if anyone is interested :)
The prompt list that follows, for reference, was borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] 1sentenceorder . Many thanks!

ETA: Sorry for the tiny font and black text on black background! That'll teach me to copy-paste and post without previewing.
