238 Moving the Goalposts by Nathan Lee (Damnit Nathan, I don't want to vote for you 4 times, so I'm limiting it to my favorite of yours, which has recieved insufficient love.)
240 How to Deal by Chris Schryer
242 The Lone Star War: 2212 AD by Nicholas J. Carter
252 Breakroom Cult by Richard Cassidy
263 My Wife, the Star by PhineasQB

I suspect a pun-bias has crept into my drabble nominations... please don't punish me for it.

Also, I love you Crimsonshark and BraveKiddo. I'm trying to be a classy gent and not vote for my own drabble, but I'm thrilled that someone did!
