A Drabble for Silivren from Primula:

Silivren Ithildin in wonderment beheld the Drabble. What perfection! Only 100 words long, a bite-sized storylet in miniscule form yet with expression of thought! She lifted her fingers over her keyboard and began to write... Ah! But what an amazing feat! Instead of merely a drabble, she crafted acrostic poetry in drabble form! A double backflip could not have been more impressive to her peers. Delving with munificent aclarity, acrosticizing each of the beloved characters. The collective jaw drops, for she has now added friends, helpers, foes and places! The faucet runs! Will it ever end? Only time will tell.
