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.

Rating: G
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.
