I did this yet again... It really is a fun meme!

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

Author notes: written for the prompt meme - still taking prompts :)
In the last section, Nancy has joined the SOE - John doesn't know this, or possibly even that the SOE exists precisely, but he suspects she's doing some sort of intelligence work. (There should at some point be a prequel to that bit... I think it stands alone well, hopefully).

Summary: Truths, half-truths, and lies John and Nancy tell each other over the years.

Title: Cloak and Dagger
Fandom: Swallows and Amazons
Rating: G
Length: 591 words plus two pictures of a letter.
Content notes: Set between Winter Holiday and Pigeon Post.
Author notes: Written for the "communication" challenge at [livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks (I've fallen rather behind in crossposting from there, I just realised).
While we never see Nancy’s handwriting, her printing is in a couple of illustrations, and is much neater than mine. My excuse is that she was in a hurry, and it’s hard to be neat when you can’t see what you’re writing!
Since Titty Walker’s name isn’t given in canon, I named her Mavis after Mavis “Titty” Altounyan, her real-life inspiration.
Summary: the Amazons seek a way to communicate secretly with the Swallows while at school.

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.
