A short piece of writing (usually fanfiction but sometimes original), usually no more than a 1000 words (although length is debatable) and often not bearing any real direction or plot. Drabbles are more often used to make a point about the characters or events involved, or to provide an introspection or specific point of view.
"I wrote a drabble fic about (insert own fandom). It's not very long but it shows how (insert name) would react to (insert event)."
