A drabble and some icons

November 23rd, 2009 (01:32 pm)

My drabble came joint first in November's dmhgchallenge :-)

The prompt was

Title: The caretaker
Rating: R
Warnings: None
Author's Note: A missing scene from The Half-blood Prince!

She can’t believe that Harry left him—and who knows what Snape’s done to him?—but she finds him alive, hunched over a washbasin, his shirt open, his pale chest covered in angry scars.

“Cleaning up Potter’s mess again, mudblood?”

He staggers, and she catches him, her hands on his bare flesh.

They’re both shocked.

Then he attacks—his arms crushing, his mouth devouring.

It’s real. It’s adult. Something clenches deep inside her; she wants more.

But he pulls back. “No, Granger,” he pants, “it’s too dangerous. I’m…

His hand lingers by her cheek.

Then he turns, and limps away.

I seem to have been making zillions of icons recently, but very few that I'm really happy with. These are the best!

Excellent drabble. I'm not in the fandom, but it's visceral, really hits the gut.

Love the icons, too! I'll probably nick #3. *g*

Thank you!

I hadn't thought of it before, but #3 really is your icon!

Hmm 2

I like the drabble - and was just considering that I needed an Éowyn icon - I think number 1 might be just right...

Thank you.

I think number 1 really fits your Eowyn ;-)

Oh, wow! The drabble was great! That has never been a pairing that I ship, but, wow! Very titillating!

And your icons are fabulous. I love the "season of plenty"

Thank you! I sort of got obsessed with Draco, & that's the only pairing that works for me, but I've generally been writing them quite a bit older...

Season of Plenty was made for an Autumn challenge, so it's quite appropriate for you :-)

I hope you don't mind that I use your 'Lady of the Manor' Hermione icon. I'm actually working on a Draco/Hermione story titled that right now and it would be ideal.

Will credit, of course. ♥

Oh, yes! (Does happy dance). That would be fun!

Is it your dracobigbang story?

[I made another one using a picture from the same photoshoot &, while while I was making both of them, I was imagining that she was at Malfoy Manor:

No, just one of my regular WIPs that I've been trying to get out of my head for nearly a year now.

Thanks for making such beautiful icons. :)

It seems I have forgotten to tell you here how I love your icons (and the adult drabble:)).
I specially like 12th Eowyn and colors of 3-4 Legolases:D
I'm hesitating on taking 22 or 23 - I love tea! And you:) green tea or usual one?:)

and congratulations on your win:) and sorry for me being so late...
