As for the drabble, this one was my favorite, hands down. I know I haven't been around as long as most of you, but this one captured the essence of what makes a great drabble. Creeped out in the beginning, but not so much as you are by the final word. Great stuff.

It sets a very unusual, child-like mood, so it works because it is a mysterious, childhood theme. Still, it just barely works, as it doesn't serve to advance the plot or characters- it may actually serve as a kind of distraction from the details, maybe to keep you from questions (such as how a girl got wings), and a pacing mechanism. I liked.

I spent the first half of the alphabet thinking that she was born a he (was Tim trying to hint at this a little?) a la The Wasp Factory, so was relieved to uncross my legs when I found out it was all about wings.
