A/N: Ah, to Drabble, again! I'm very excited about this. It has the muse firing on all thrusters. So to speak. This will be a multi-fandom thread. You will See Wold on Fire, Star Trek: 2009, Star Trek: Picard, NCIS:LA, Stranger Things, The Rookie, and more. Enjoy! If you have not hear of 'World on Fire', it presently airing on Masterpiece Theater, on PBS. It is a WWII story told on from many different povs, but mainly focusing on the Bennnet, Chase, and Tomaszeski families. Check it out! Week I - by Mira_Jade World on Fire- PBS 1. Adamant The first time Kasia was sent to seduce a German soldier, she failed. She did not fail to lure him into the alley. That was all to to easy. Her failure lay in that she saw the German as a person. The boy was young as she was and he was nice. Somehow this clouded her judgment. As a member of the Polish resistance, emotion had to be left out of it. The second attempt, went off with out a hitch. She lured a soldier into the alley and walked away as a compatriot shot him in the head. 2. Abide Robina Chase was done being a mother. Well, done being a mother to the young. She was never cut out for it in the first place. When her husband died it was all she could do to raise her own son with even an ounce of compassion. Now, her son had brought home a ten year old Polish refugee and she was sour on the idea. When the Germans invaded, Harry had intended to bring home a girl, but the girl had opted to save her brother instead. The boy didn't even speak English. What, on earth, was she going to do with him? 3. Afield War had a way of humbling the prideful. Tom Bennett did not like the idea of humility. His tough guy actions had landed him in trouble with the law, his only way out of prison was to sign up to fight. And, fight he did, with his fellows at enlistment, with the crew on board his battleship, and ultimately with himself after the ship was torpedoed and another man saved him at he cost of a limb. Tough is tough when you're at home, but manhood is forged in battle when the blood on your hands is not your own. 4. Aghast When Nancy first learned that there was more to the Nazi party than a nationalistic drive to conquer the world, she was shocked at the level of depravity that they were willing to go to preserve the 'Aryan race'. Her neighbors, the Rosslers had become very protective of their child, whom Nancy had witnessed having an epileptic seizure. The Rosslers were convinced that the she would need to hidden away before she was taken away to a clinic, a place where 'defective' we taken and never seen again. Nancy could not believe that it was true. Was such butchery possible? 5. Aforetime Douglas Bennett did not want war...again. He did not want it for himself and definitely did not want it for his son and daughter. He knew what war did to a man...and a woman. He had experienced it first hand in the trenches of France. He had seen men bombed, shot, stabbed, and, like himself, simply hollowed out by the experience. He was a man surviving, not living. His son was enlisting to avoid jail and his daughter was enlisting to do her part and avoid the pain of a broken relationship. He would sit at home and worry. Relentlessly.
