This Freeform is going to be a series of 100 word or less drabbles based on 50scenes.livejournal prompts. So yes, this will have 50 posts. All of them will be quick.

Purpose: To elaborate on the histories and personalities of Jade and Avaric.
Reward: We'll cross this bridge when we get to it. I currently have no idea.

This will have 50 posts total. For now, it's WIP. I'll post in the Freeform Directory when it's ready to get done. But feel free PM me as I go through. I only bite in Tuesdays. :B

The last one will be Table 5 - 038. Leave. (This is just a note to myself.)

Jade is the odd numbers. Avaric is the even numbers.

If I forgot to mention anything, PM me.

Table of Contents

Title: Those Were the Days - The Firsts
Prompt: Table 4 - 011. Change.
Word Count: 100
Notes: On Sarah's Birth

I remember my parents being happy. My mother said that she was having another baby. I asked if that meant the stork was coming.

I remember they laughed.

I remember mother getting fat. She was always eating, but was always hungry. I asked why, and she said the stork already brought the baby - it's inside her stomach. I didn't understand how the stork put the baby in her stomach, but I didn't ask.

I remember my parents coming home from the hospital, a baby in my mother's arms, sleeping.

I remember watching her wake up for the first time.

Title: Those Were the Days - Family Time
Prompt: Table 1 - 004. Sand.
Word Count: 100
Notes: Avaric is seven. Lindsay is 15 and Parker is 11. Vaporeon is the family pet.

Avaric was digging quickly. It was a perfect system - he dug the moat, Parker made the walls, and Lindsay fashioned the castle. Vaporeon sat beside Avaric, occasionally helping, but mostly napping. Avaric swore that he'd dig this hole so deep; nothing would ever touch their castle.

But then a wave swamped Vaporeon, and she spewed water all over Lindsay. Lindsay laughed and jumped towards Vaporeon, gripping her in a tight hug. Parker and Avaric joined in, laughing and rolling around in the ruins of that castle with their sister and the Pokemon.

It didnít get any better than this.

Title: Those Were the Days - Count the Stars
Prompt: Table 01 - 007. Moonlight.
Word Count: 100
Notes: They're kids.

We were camping in my backyard. We were so young, so adventurous, braving the outside world for the first time. Equipped with blankets, flashlights, and sticks.

I was rolling out my sleeping bag when Markus spoke. "Hey Jade?"

"Yes?" was my answer. He was lying on his back, head propped up by his hands, staring at the night sky. "What is it?"

"Have you ever tried to count the stars?"

I flattened it out and moved next to him. "I don't think so." I sat down. "There are too many of them."

"Can we try?"

I smiled. "Let's do it."

Title: Those Were the Days - Morning Routine
PromptTable 03 - 022. Turquoise.
Word Count: 100
Notes: None.

"Avaric, get up. You have school today."

His mother was standing over him. She always looked so big, he remembered, so dependable, like all mothers should be. It wasn't under he grew up that he realized his own mom was quite short. She shook him again, and pulled on the rope that hung from the ceiling, opening the skylight.

He squinted at the invasion of the brightness, and rolled over. She started to tickle his toes, and he kicked at her, giving in.

He opened his eyes. It was bright, but so blue. A happy blue. Just like his mom.

Title: Those Were the Days - Child's Problems
Prompt: Table 04 - 003. Bleed.
Word Count: 100
Notes: Jade

We're in Math class, which I don't like, but the teacher is nice, and she gives us candy when we do a problem on the board, in front of everybody, even if we get it wrong. She says that it's always important to try, try, try again, and if you get it wrong, you just figured out how not to do that problem.

But itís scary. I go up there right now, and I explain 181-62. But Iím wrong.

In a way, itís like I opened a wound.

But I smile when I see what candy I got. Chocolate Band-aid.

Title: Those Were the Days - A Picture Worth Explaning
Prompt: Table 05 - 017. Tomorrow.
Word Count: 100
Notes:

Lindsay will graduate tomorrow. Avaric will go the ceremony, and he'll get to miss school.

But now they were spending family time together, playing Pictionary. Mom and Dad versus Avaric and Lindsay. Avaric and Mom were drawing. William was acting as the judge.

"Time!" he announced. "Show us the pictures."

Avaric revealed his. Lindsay squinted. "Um, the sun?"

Nods.

"Going down?"

Faster.

"Graduation?"

Avaric threw down the picture. "We won!"

Lindsay looked at it, and then laughed. "Little bro, do you even know what Graduation means?"

"No, but I know you'll be there."

A sigh. "Okay, we're gonna explain this."

Title: Those Were the Days - Uncomprehending
Prompt: Table 01 - 036. Sick.
Word Count: 100
Notes:

"Jade, you can't go in Sarah's room," Dad explains. His voice is gentle, very light. I know that something is wrong.

"But why not?" I ask.

"Because your sister is very sick."

"But she's been sick for a week!" I say. "Dad, just because I'm only nine years old, doesn't mean I don't understand anything. You can tell me. I'm practically a teenager."

Dad smiles at that. "She had the flu."

"But not anymore?"

"But she's sick again?"

I sigh in annoyance. "But how does that even work?"

"I'll tell you when you're older."

Parents don't make any sense to me.

Title: Those Were the Days - About Girls and Phones
Prompt: Table 02 - 018. Lover.
Word Count: 100
Notes:

William had a girlfriend. Lindsay and Avaric teased him. Vaporeon peed in his room the day he told everybody.

"Mom, I'm in High School now!" William yelled.

Avaric waited until everybody else had left. Lindsay's Psyduck was standing in the corner of the room, a strange expression on its face.

"William, can I ask you something?"

He blinked. "Go ahead."

"Is she pretty?"

"I think so."

Avaric paused. "Oh," he said. He looked back at his older brother, but he was messing with his phone.

"You know, I get a phone next year."

"In two years, Ava," William corrected.

Title: Those Were the Days - Midnight Prayer
Prompt: Table 02 - 031. Angel.
Word Count: 100
Notes: Jade's monologue.

Dear Guardian Angel,

Avaric says you don't exist, but I don't believe him. He also says that the Tooth Fairy isn't real. But I know she's real. Why else would there be a quarter underneath my pillow whenever I lose a tooth?

Tomorrow is my first day is seventh grade. Iím really nervous, and I hope Markus and I are in the same class this year.

This is when everything gets real. I have Algebra and French already, and they count as High School credit. I donít know if I like that. Itís gonna be really hard.

Thatís all. Good-night.

Title: Those Were the Days - Not Like That
Prompt: Table 05 - 031. Pixie.
Word Count: 100
Notes: Summer Camp, prompt relation might be offensive.

He couldn't help looking. He just couldn't. It was his first time being in this kind of situation.

They just explored the marshes, and were showering. There were lots of showers, but it was all open. Very daunting, but it was either that or stay really dirty.

Well, the other boys seemed not to have a problem. So here goes nothing.

Then they started talking to each other and splashing the muddy water that ran along the floor. But his eyes were looking elsewhere.

Avaric closed his eyes. He had to resist. Had to.

He wasnít like that. No way.

Title: Those Were the Days - Young Dreams
Prompt: Table 01 - 014. Sing.
Word Count: 100
Notes:

Sarah is in the backyard. Her arms are stretched out and her head is perched towards the sky. She's spinning around and singing.

It's a beautiful day, bright, sunny, light breeze, but man, her voice. It's horrible. I want to go and tell her how bad she is. That she should stop scaring away all of the animals. Mom and I found robin's eggs in one of the trees yesterday.

But I don't move. She's singing a different song, her favorite. And I just can't tell her that she sucks, even if it is the truth.

She has dreams too.

Title: Those Were the Days - Senioritis Already
Prompt: Table 03 - 001. Needles.
Word Count: 100
Notes: The needles are what his siblings tell him, just in case you didn't get it.

William just got accepted to college. Lindsay was in her last year.

Avaric was in his last year of Middle School. He felt like such a kid.

"But you are a kid," his sister reminded him.

He didn't want to be. He wanted to go to college, too. He didn't want to go to High School. He wanted to skip it.

"Avaric, you have to go to school," William said. "And you have to try really hard."

Even when he could be doing so many other things. He sighed - there was no point. Some things you just gotta do.

Title: Those Were the Days - Busticate Stones
Prompt: Table 01 - 035. Poem.
Word Count: 100
Notes: 100th Post! Whoo!

I have to write, well, y'know. A poem. For school.

But I never know what to write about. Mom says I should write about not having anything to write about. That I should write about my frustration. But I don't understand how that's even supposed to work. Is that even practical?

Markus always finds these things easy.

Maybe, I'll just look at one of the songs that Sarah's always writing. There must be something good there.

No, just kidding. She's in elementary school, and I'm in 7th grade. Not gonna happen, unfortunately.

Rocks. I'll just write about rocks. They're interesting.

Title: Those Were the Days #14 - Like Elves
Prompt: Table 04. - 48. December.
Word Count: 100
Notes: Elementary School.

They were learning how to...wrap presents?

Avaric was sitting at his desk, listening to the teacher blandly relay instructions. Hold it tight, then tape...

Is this what it's like to be an elf? That must be horrible, he thought. He would hate to be an elf.

At the end of class, the teacher told them to address their present to somebody. "To Santa's Elves," he wrote.

The teacher frowned when she saw it. "You know," she said, "Moms are like elves."

"I don't think my Mom would like it if I called her an elf."

"I donít think she would."
