Woo-oo, another drabble!

April 18th, 2010 (05:47 pm)

My drabble came second at dmhgchallenge again :-)

The prompt was

Author: Ningloreth
Title: Whoops...
Rating: R
Warnings: One rude word :-)

“House-elf inspection?” says Malfoy, incredulously.

“Annually, from now on,” says Hermione. “I’ve brought the paperwork...”

Malfoy dismisses it with a wave. “I’m too busy,” he says. “Binky’ll show you round.”

“That’s not how it’s done.” Hermione takes a vial from her briefcase.

“Veritaserum? You intend to interrogate me?”

“I have the necessary permit...”

He’s angry, but he drinks the potion.

“Now,” says Hermione, “is there anything you want to ask me before we begin?”

Malfoy’s eyes widen, and his hand flies to his mouth, but the question spills out anyway: “Have you any idea how shaggable you are, Granger?”

Love it, especially the detail of his body language after he's taken the drug.

Thank you! (I think Draco must have been the first person she interrogated -- she needs to learn to ask that question before she administers the Veritaserum!)

This was lovely, definitely one of my favorites! I love the idea of the Hermione inspecting house elves. Nice way to get them open and talking!

This is absolutely fabulous! Probably the best one I've read here so far, it really is my favourite.
And working for the House-elf Inspection is something Hermione would totaly do. xD And poor Draco, hahaha!

I sort of developed the House-elf inspection idea in The Best Laid Plans..."
