FK Fanfic: "Party Favors"

These seven miniature stories were my contribution to the "door prizes" for on-time players in the May 2010 fkficfest game.  (You can read the whole slate here, with seven more drabbles by amilyn and one by [personal profile] leela_cat.)

I'd written a drabble -- a 100-word story -- once before, but just the once.  People often compare the discipline of a 100-word story to a haiku.  The goal is to fit an entire, self-sufficient tale into the few words, not just an excerpt of a larger piece; I found it very challenging, and I know that my success varies across these selections.

  •   Title: "Party Favors" (also on AO3)
  •   Length: 7 x 100 words
  •   Date: Posted to fkficfest on May 30, 2010; not yet posted to FKFic-L

  •   Quotation:  "The little camera on the patrol car's dashboard ensured that Vachon had to take it like a human."
