On orange nights (Drabbles #18 & #19)  

Why orange? Well, it's been snowing and the streetlamps are making everything seem to have that colour. The snow, the air. (How poetic.) Sometimes nights like this also look purple, but this time, it's orange. Never mind me. XD

Anyway. Screw the world, I'm writing drabbles! One is happy and the other sad. I won't tell you which is which. You have to find out... it is pretty obvious.

They're both inspired by the snow because it's beautiful and I'm in the mood.

Pairing: Remus/Sirius

Summary: Remus and Sirius spend a cold day out. MWPP era.

“Remus,” he calls out, a little breathless, “what’s this all about?”

But no answer comes from Moony, who is by now running ahead of him past the lake, across the school grounds, towards the first towering trees of the Forbidden Forest. Snowflakes are aflutter in the air, no doubt about to engulf everything.

Finally, they halt at the very edge of the Forest; Remus lets him catch up and turns to him, smiling. Sirius does his best to look annoyed, but his heart is simply not in it. “Well?”

“Tranquility, “ Remus chuckles, and they are rolling in the snow.



Title: Forever and Never
Pairing: Albus/Gellert
Rating: SFW
Word Count: 100
Summary: Albus has plenty of time to reflect.

Sometimes, like on this day in winter, Albus wishes to wipe his memory blank or turn back time. He suspects—he knows—that he has enough magical ability to accomplish either, but he will always stop short. Perhaps he is slipping into habits of old age; an amusing prospect, he finds, although it indeed is too late to forget the past that has shaped him now. He has accepted.

Whirling snowflakes. Long ago, he looked forward to such winters with Gellert—Gellert with his gaze sharp as December wind. With Gellert, always and never.

In truth, it only was once.

Aww, thanks! I'm glad the Grindeldore angst doesn't feel repetitive. :D

Aww, drabbles yay!

The R/S - You wrote the puppies like puppies! I love them like this, and I really love how it ends with motion. Lovely, lovely piece.

The Albus/Gellert - This is a very lyrical drabble. For some reason I can hear "With Gellert, always and never. In truth, it only was once" like a song.

Glad the snow was able to inspire you :)

Hehe, I love me some drabbles.

Now that you said it, "the puppies like puppies" is just what I was going for! Glad it worked so well for you.

Like a song? Wow, that's... wow. Thank you!

Yeah, I had to use the snow for something productive. xD

Same here :)

It was a very sweet piece!

You're very welcome!

Hahaha, and I'm glad you did.

I think there's a way to reply to everything in your comment in one symbol: ^_^

I keep thinking of a song too when I read the second drabble o_o

You too? This makes me want to reconsider the label for that fic... ^_^

The first one is just amazing. The second paragraph actually looks like there's a camera following Remus's every step, and it was just a wonderful feeling.
And the way you ended the 2nd drabble! that was so unexpected - and I love being surprised. :)

I'm glad you appreciate the R/S one! I was starting to miss contributing to this fandom, and then I read your comic strip and this sort of happened. XD Anyway, that's interesting about the camera! I try to go for cinematic writing at times, but it's tricky.

Glad it came as a surprise to you. ^_^
remecielremeciel on November 23rd, 2008 05:59 pm (UTC)
Wow. This is one of the greatest compliments ever. That calls for a very good update next week for the comic strip. I'm quite worried now not to do as expected. XD

Hey, I'm sure it will be okay. And it's always inspiring to look at artwork with a story. ^_^
remeciel: Sirius Tattooremeciel on November 23rd, 2008 07:03 pm (UTC)
I seconded it! XD

Okay. XD

The second one is very lyrical indeed - I love the combination of short and long phrases.

And the first one is so cute! *melts*

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed both of them.

Snow is something special. I luve it for being snow and for prompting you to write drabbles ;)

I so much love the end of the Gellert/Albus one. This contributes to my melancholic mood of today :(

"With Gellert, always and never. In truth, it only was once."

There is magic in these lines!

It is! And I'm glad you approve of my use for it. :D

I've been pretty melancholy too. At least the drabble is cathartic?

Thanks so much!
