Abby scraped snow away from the entrance of her snow-hole with numb hands. It was almost tempting to let it become blocked, just to keep the howling blizzard at bay, but the risk of suffocating was too great.

            Her throat felt raw, and her lips were painfully cracked. The thirst was almost overwhelming.

            Snow was water, right? Except, apparently, eating frozen snow wasted more energy than it provided.

Screw that.

 Abby was determined to conserve her energy, to remain alive and alert for when the anomaly returned.

            She stared bleakly out at the endless white, and licked her lips again.

Ooooh. Go, Abby!

Thanks. I've been poking and piddling around with this idea since yesterday afternoon, so I'm quite pleased I've finally got it to work.

And I so need a decent Abby icon. All my icons with her also have Connor.

Eek! *Iz worried for Abby*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 2nd, 2009 11:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
So you should be... *see how I fail to use a reassuring icon*

But Abby is tough, I'm sure she can survive.

*Eyes offending icon beadily*

Aw! Poor Abby. I hope she makes it.

I'm sure she will, Abby's tough. And hey, I managed to post it before the deadline this week!

Abby's a tough lass, she'll make it.
*cheers her on*

Ooh really brilliant, I love how tough Abby is!

Thanks. I like Abby, she's the kind of person you'd want to be with if you ever got trapped in a dangeropus situation.

Oh no. Be careful, Abby.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 3rd, 2009 01:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Bit of a dilema, but she's smart, she can decide what the highest priority for suvival.
fififolle From: fififolle Date: February 3rd, 2009 08:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh boy! That's a bit scary. I hope she makes it.
Nice one.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 3rd, 2009 01:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
I was aiming for tense/scary, so yey! This is about the thrid version of this idea - one of the previous ones had her hallucinating an argument about survival with Ray Mears!
fififolle From: fififolle Date: February 3rd, 2009 05:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, awesome! But I can't imagine Ray Mears arguing with anyone :) Abby would eat him alive, LOL!

*meep*

I'm sure she'll be okay...

(I also need an Abby icon - hmmmm...)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 3rd, 2009 01:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Abby's tougher than most the blokes, she'll be fine.

I need an Abby icon, but I'd need to get a paid account with more icon allowance to be able to fit any!

Very vivid, and a lovely use of the prompt!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 3rd, 2009 01:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, I was bunnied by the weather on Sunday!

I love this, but I feel really sorry for Abby. That anomaly had better open up again!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 4th, 2009 10:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Even if it doesn't, I bet Abby could survive quite well for a while on her own.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: August 6th, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
eek for Abby, but I'm sure she'll do OK.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 10th, 2009 06:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Abby is tough, she'll survive, whatever it takes.
