i am totally wearing crankypants today for a number of reasons, but i am going to try to ignore that for now in favor of fic. [ profile] twicetoldfandom has gone up here. there's no interface for feedback that i can see, though, so i'm crossposting all of it. for those unfamiliar with the ficathon, a number of authors were given the same image (mine is linked in the notes) and asked to write a story based off of it, to see how differently we might interpret it. how cool is that?

[Four or five things Remus and Sirius never did on vacation]

well, it's friday on the east coast. best to post when the wifi is working.

today is the birthday of the otp, the sushi to my wasabi, the chocolate to my peanut butter, the one, the only, the [ profile] dorrie6. dorrito 4evahomg! i wish for you the best of all things in the coming year, and because i am selfish i wish that this will include me ;) and (since it is almost mother's day, i'd like to offer some love to the marvelous [ profile] jansong for giving us the gift of melinda in the first place. you rock :))

and now the gift, a ficlet-type-thing. [ profile] starfishchick said you’d love me even if i didn't manage to write something, but i thought it best not to risk it:

[into the mist] - harry (gen!)
this is kindasortabutnotreally inspired by peter mulvey's "birgit". it is also thanks to [ profile] glossing, because the way she writes about buffy makes me want to write about harry. for better or for worse, as i am rusty these days. and now the notes are longer than the fic.

[So I Wait for Confirmation] - remus/sirius
for [ profile] starfishchick's first lines meme. i am determined, dude.

On Thursday night - Friday morning, really - there had been no words. None spoken anew, anyway, instead words hovered around them, angry and cutting words slick along all the surfaces like oil, and Sirius feared the world would shift again and he would fall.

Remus had long ago turned away, shoulders impassive, and Sirius was too tired, his tongue too heavy in his mouth to say what needed saying. Anything would slide off of Remus anyway, slide away, slide off a wall between them that Sirius could almost reach out and touch.

Sirius sighed and disapparated. There were no magic words.

[some have motherhood thrust upon them] - petunia
[ profile] dorrie6 issued a challenge. don't worry - i won't waste my time trying to get y'all to do the same for me :) actually, i should do a last lines one, as i try to make those decent to make up for the rest of the fic.

[back one day] - sirius/remus
just in the nick of time for [ profile] offscreen's birthday. i had intended to write something fluffy. oops. double drabble

I smiled in knowing I'd be back one day  )

title: eyes as clear as centuries
pairing: neville/luna. sort of.
archive: .: marginalia :.
notes: for the two lines challenge. thanks to [ profile] shanalle for organizing, to [ profile] frulie for saying "hey, that sounds like luna", and [ profile] dorrie6 for telling me the beginning didn't suck. this was a bitch to write. i almost quit a third of the way in and wrote monaboyd instead. about 1180 words and only one day late. woo.

and when i see you
i really see you upside down
- death cab for cutie, a lack of color

People see only one version of Neville Longbottom. If they see him at all. )

[shivaree] - mwpp
a bit of marauder fluff. crossposted to [ profile] drabblesmith.

"I'm putting you in charge of noise," Sirius had said. "You can torment the neighbors a bit." Peter was in charge of light, and Sirius himself was in charge of making sure James didn't bloody Disapparate at the last moment, but he needn't have bothered. Prongs was not to run tonight.

After the ceremony, Peter set off fireworks that exploded into designs of questionable taste, Remus Charmed the pots to clatter near-symphonically, a wizard shivaree, but the bride and groom had gone.

"All this for me?" Sirius teased, slipping under Remus's arm to watch the display. "Moony. You shouldn't have."

[untitled] - sirius/remus
for [ profile] 15minuteficlets. trying to break a block. totally didn't work.

this is just strange. double drabble )
marginalia: (neville)
sorry, sorry, one more. i'll go away now.

[waking up] - neville
[ profile] queerditch_pub "when i woke up you were gone."

Neville had always been there, from the first trip on the Hogwarts Express to Harry's hurried alias on the Knight Bus. He was a fixture in the boys dormitory, part neither of SeamusandDean nor HarryandRon. He had even been there before it all began, hidden in the shadow of Harry (and assumption) in that long-ago prophecy. He had been there always, but no one had noticed. No one save Luna, because Luna noticed things that other people didn't. She drew him away, won him over, gave him the confidence to be whole.

When Harry finally woke up, Neville was gone.

oh, why am i never paying attention when it's [ profile] queerditch_pub time? i blame time zones. no matter. am going to cheat and do all of round one instead of one from each. *rebel* each of these is a drabble, and was written in under 20 minutes, per the q_p rules.

[theanthropic] - harry
this spilled out at exactly 100 words. i think i better not mess with it. and in my head, it was ron, but that's up for debate. crossposted to [ profile] drabblesmith

He's faced the dark Lord again and again, as a baby, as a child, as a sullen teenager. Every time he has lived. Every time people edge away from him just a little bit more. They begin to think him theanthropic. They forget he is just a boy. They push him ahead, they call him a demon, they call him a savior. They never call him Harry.

The merpeople push him up from the depths, Dumbledore carries him back to the castle, and that night Gryffindor Tower sinks under the weight of the one who would have called him love.
