Who would wait for a happy ending when you can have doom right now? (Drabble #8)  

I wonder where this is from: Power is absolute corruption and corrupts absolutely. Power that sways is the beast in human nature.
I have the feeling that I've actually read this quote somewhere. But I can't recall where and who and what it was about. But today I encountered it again in a very unexpected context. Ideas, anyone?

Though I wouldn't be too surprised if I remembered or found out by a coincidence immediately after posting this. XD

In other news, I've got a drabble again! I have no idea how it happened. Last night I was innocently trying to fall asleep...and this is the result. (Seriously, if this thing is what I've managed to come up with innocently, I wonder what would have happened if I had really tried.)

Regarding drabbles. I'll wait until I've collected about five of these new ones and then post the whole bunch in remusxsirius in one go. Because I just won't go spamming the comm with small fics before I finish the big one. Which I miraculously haven't forgotten about, mwahaha.

Moving on.

Pairing: Remus/Sirius (THEY TORMENT ME)
Era: First war
Rating: PG for allusions to sex (or is that PG-13? I still fail at these in-between ratings) Slightly NSFW
Summary: Sirius returns home from yet another Order mission.
Notes: Set late in the first war when it's all starting to be a bit too much for our boys. Third-person POV that actually seems more like Sirius's perspective.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything belonging to JKR. That's why I don't get paid for this.

They are wrapped up in sensation. It’s hot today; his hair is damp against the pillow in seconds, but he has no attention left to mind. He had none left to speak when he arrived, and now all the hollow welcomes (and the more serious things neither he nor Remus would have voiced anyway) are whirling in the sunlight illuminating the stuffy room. He closes his eyes. Then he feels just the glide of lips, the caress of the other’s hands, and everything he wants to feel to obliterate his memories of death.

Maybe peace should always be only temporary.

This drabble is lovely. First war fics or ficlets are always so diffilfu to deal with, there's so much angst to write about these two characters.. and I don't know how, but you managed to write a very angsty part in it embodied within a very peaceful, quiet moment. Wodnerful.

I'm really happy you enjoyed it! The first war is fascinating since it includes a period of time that Remus and Sirius started as close friends and ended as supposed enemies. But I think that even if they were suspecting each other for ages, they wouldn't really manage to part because of it, which is basically the idea of this drabble. I'm so pleased you liked the angst! I was trying to make it subtle, and now you've made me feel like I succeeded. ♥

I think this is definitely your strong point in writing! the way you can mix up so easily emotions, and they intertwine with one another wonderfully. You don't focus on just one detail, but you have a general point of view about the situation and the characters.

*blushes* That's a really wonderful compliment. Though it would be difficult for me to write drabbles in any other way that I write them now. I always try to have some meaning in them, so I can't focus on details too much in such a limited space.

I see what you mean. Drabbles seem to be a great excerise to focus on a very precise point, but it could be a bit frustrating not to give more details about other things....

That's exactly it! When I started with fanfic, I was actually afraid of writing drabbles because of the word limit. But then I tried and eventually "trained" myself to deal with them. xD

Drabbles are a good exercise, aren't they now? it seems that because of the words limit, the author/writer/plotter is closer to their text and can give more intensity to their writing.
(now, it's just an impression, I do NOT write at all. *g*)

For someone who doesn't write at all, this impression is pretty accurate! Just how it feels for me to write a drabble. ^_^

Only once or twice a year. Be careful, it won't happen again in 2007. XD

Hee, reminds me a song sung by W.Houston and her rival M.Carey! they were trying sooo much to sing harder than the other one. XDD

It was, indeed! you should have seen them trying to make people believe for the promotional video to get on well, but I'm sure they hated each other. *g*

Ohh, my such a nice mood in the drabble. The way the lips glide, and that entire last sentence of the first paragraph...so fantastic.

I love how you write in a format of one big paragraph and then one following sentence. You've done that at least once before, and it's excellent.
See you later, instigator: Remus/Sirius2 (the_8th_square & teh_indyoudeteron on October 4th, 2007 07:58 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked the ending of the first paragraph since I'd been dying to write it. Even before I got far enough in the drabble for that.

You've found me out! Apparently one paragraph + one sentence has become my signature style for drabbles. (I could just say I'm repeating myself, but "signature style" sounds better. XD) The fic I have for your birthday looks similar.

(Definitely go for "signature style" ^_~)
