2018-06-10 When Desire Is All That Is Left; A Death Eater’s Desire Challenge

Title: When Desire Is All That Is Left
Challenge: A death eater’s desire
Team Death Eaters
Rating: PG
Length: 100 x2
Characters: Snape, Granger
Synopsis: Near the end, Severus Snape ponders the loss of everything he had once fought so hard to achieve.

I’m pretty sure my drabble chops are more than a little flabby, but I was so inspired from stgulik‘s drabble series that I wanted to give it a try.

~o0o~

I remember desire.

It was a burning thirst, a voracious hunger in the belly of my youth, spreading in so many different directions it could never be satisfied. Power, women, magic, vanity; proffered to me in the Dark Lord’s tempting banquet of seduction, and I feasted until I was bloated, sickened with it.

Now, as I walk through these halls, and feel the hatred of every pair of eyes that settle on my restless form, it’s hard to conjure up even the faintest trace of the petty ambitions that brought me to this pass.

What do you desire now, Severus?

~o0o~

Somewhere, behind layers of protective love and bloody-minded determination, Potter is hiding. From me. He and Voldemort are the bookends of my life, and between them, a brilliant little witch, daring and clever, stands, ready to defend her friend to the death.

I once promised to die for the Dark Lord, and I probably will. But have I ever truly had the will, the courage, to die for what I love?

No.

But Hermione does.

Oh, to be protected and loved by such a brave heart. Perhaps, in the end, this is the only worthy desire I will ever have.

Title: The Maltese Hippogryff, Part One
Team: DEs
Challenge: Flip Your Style
Rating: PG
Length: 4 X 100
Summary: This is a great challenge, but I was at a loss. I’ve done angst, comedy, smut, HEA UHEA, UST and PWP here, so what could I flip? Then I asked myself, what if I made Hermione a femme fatale and Severus a Humphrey Bogart character?

This is the answer. I think you will agree, I shouldn’t quit my day job. SSHG drama in the style of Raymond Chandler.

2016-05-04 Preparation; Formal Robes Challenge

Title: Preparation
Challenge: Formal Robes
Team: Death Eaters
Length: 100
Rating: G
A/N: The characters do not belong to me. The mistakes do. For stgulik.

It was long and narrow. Without the life force to fill it, there was nothing imposing about it. Emptied of its owner, it carried no intimidation, no personality.

Hermione laid the robe on the bed, face up, and smoothed the wrinkles from the fine fabric. Absently, she stroked the velvet cuffs, ran her fingers over the long line of buttons.

The first tear dropped on the arm, and disappeared into the magic fibres. She vanished the blood and venom from the collar, and repaired the shoulder.

He would never want to be seen in anything less than his best.
