I've heard, at last!

February 21st, 2011 (04:38 am)



We've decided to just go ahead and let you submit without a beta. It'll likely be a situation where when you submit, if we have any thoughts on correcting anything in the story because it goes above an error count, we'll contact you about it before we do to discuss the change -- if there will be any need for one at all. Sound good?

It took me a day to come up with a witty reply:

OK, thanks for letting me know.

Because I'm a wimp.



In other news, I won!



There were a lot of good drabbles this month, so -- what with the other thing -- I'm really pleased :-)

The prompt was



Prompt: Veritaserum
Title: Malfoy Manor
Rating: G
Warnings: None

“That isn’t working, Bellatrix,” says Lucius, suddenly sounding more confident. “Draco, fetch your potion.”

When Draco returns, his mad aunt has dragged Granger onto a chair. She pulls back the girl’s head, pinching her nose hard, and Draco pours the clear liquid into her gaping mouth.

“Now,” says Bellatrix, menacingly, “tell me where you got the sword!

Granger’s startled eyes meet Draco’s, asking a question.

Almost imperceptibly, he shakes his head, No.

For a moment, her gaze lingers and, though her expression hardly changes, he knows she’s thanking him. Then, “I’ve already told you,” she lies. “It’s just a copy.”



And... I'm in Vancouver now, for two weeks! I'm rubbish at taking photos, but I'm really going to make an effort.

Yay

Vancouver! Wow! Enjoy yourself.

Also - you are more polite than me - I'd have been inclined to say "Gee! Thanks..." and hit post before I reconsidered it.

Yay! for the win - I like the drabble.

Thank you! It's a bit hard walking round this time, but I'm pacing myself, and I'm taking photos!

Congrats on the win. Have to say, though, still not impressed with these people.

Well, congrats on everything, including the win! I liked how you were able to sneak the prompt inside canon.

hp: good book

YES! I loved that drabble, it was so so so unusual and original and gooooood. The characters didn't say anything, but it's all there. You deserved victory and you got it!!!

Yay! Another cool drabble! I can imagine it happening in the books quite well, this little scene. :D
