01:56 pm - Ficlet offer/request
Okay, I need to get my head out of the tired/emotional place it's in. Writing is usually the best way for me to do that, and I still haven't figured out what I'm doing about NaNo.


The first five people who comment with the name of a character in any of my fandoms (see my interests, etc) will receive a drabble or ficlet with said character.

The theme will be the same for all the fics: weariness, tiredness, and any variations thereof. I will take suggestions for the form you want for the charater you request. :-)

Eberts, the one-man accuracy machine


“Done with that transfer yet?”

His boss has been eating that Welsh cheese again, and the smell doesn’t mix well with the stale, milky air of Ebert's latest cup of coffee.

Eberts keeps his eyes on the monitor, trying not to lose his place in the stream of financial data. “Almost, sir. A few more loose ends.”

The Official grunts, presumably in approval, and leaves. Eberts blinks hard, trying to focus.

Oh, no. Oh, please, no. If he missed that connection, he’ll have to sneak in through the software’s backdoor and redo it, another half-hour’s worth of work. His fingers can barely feel the keys at this point, but he forces himself to trust them; he has to get this done.

Maybe he can stop for a while, afterwards. This Agency can’t afford mistakes. Or near misses.

He’ll tell the Official that.

Eberts blinks, then keeps on typing.

Bahaha! I love that icon. :-) Indeed.

And you're most welcome. It had been a very long time since I tried to write Eberts.
