"Oh of all the-"
Draco's voice rang gently in the abandoned corridors, stirring some bats that hung in the rafters. Seven years in this stupid castle, and he had somehow managed to get himself lost. He had never seen this corridor before, at least. If only he had that map that the Weasleys gave Potter. Or hell, a map in general.
The soft voice made him jump nearly a foot in the air and he turned around sharply to find a girl gazing dazedly at him. Ugh...
"what do you want, Lovegood?"
"I happened to notice that you looked confused...and besides, your aura seems troubled." The pale eyes gazed at the area around his body and he frowned lightly, turning away.
"I'm fine. You shouldn't be out of your dorm."
"You don't seem fine." Came the lofty voice behind him and he sighed.
"I'm fine, Luna. I can figure this out on my own."
The girl smiled and stepped up beside him, easily sliding her hand into his, and giggling at the way he tensed, silver eyes looking down at her in surprise.
"You know. I've always liked you." She said with a soft smile, leading him to the right and down another corridor. He remained quiet, a bit baffled at the fact that Luna had the audacity to touch him like that. He'd always found her unique (that was the polite way to put it, at least), but not quite unattractive. He'd just never considered it. She was a pureblood, and he father was "famous"...on the wrong end of famous unfortunately. But she was friends with Potter. It automatically ruled her out...but still. His eyes did a quick dip down her body. Nice...
"You might want to buy me dinner first." The girl's voice floated in from beside him and he jerked his head back up stiffly.
"Don't know what you're talking about. Wouldn't want a girl like you anyway."
"Is that so?" Luna said with a secretive smile. Draco nodded firmly and cast his gaze away from her completely. Not that he was tempted or anything. Suddenly he realized he recognized this part of the castle. They were by the kitchens.
"I can take it from here." he said gruffly, releasing her hand (which he had NOT been holding...no...definitely not).
"Ok. Have a good night then, Draco." She said with a smile, nodding to him and then heading down the hall opposite of Gryffindor's common room.
"Luna...Dorms are that way."
The girl paused and then looked in the direction he pointed before giving a tittering laugh and nodding, "So they are! Thank you!" And she headed off in that direction instead.
Draco watcher her, finding himself smiling after a few moments before he wiped the look from his face. No. Absolutely, unequivically no! But his lightly flushed cheeks and the slight tingling in his fingers and chest told him otherwise.
"God...dammit." he breathed in a sigh of defeat. No one could find out he was falling for her.
Could you...I don't know...perhaps write another chapter for this.
OHBOYOHBOYOHBOYOHBOY. keeeeep writing. MUST. know. what. happens. NEXT!
Haha, ah, the joys of writing something new! The strange pairings tend to stick to one's bones, don't they? I'm glad you've found a liking for it, though, and that the drabble was fun in itself! I know I was amused while I read it, haha. c:
And thanks for taking the request at all!
And thanks for taking the request at all!
Hey not a problem! Feel free to request more than one! I'll do them until school catches up with me. To be honest, this is the only way i can keep my creative juices flowing! Such is the plight of a science major
You can bet I will! Ack, that has to get tough, at times. All the more reason to do my best and help you out. I looked at your last request journal, and noticed that you were willing to take a list of 50 words for drabbles. How does that sound? Are you still up to it? I'm thinking maybe Luna in general, or different Luna pairings, just so you're not as tied down. Hahaha, and she's my favorite female character in HP, so hey. Regardless of subject, I can definitely get you a list.
Sure hand it ova! I'll try to work my way through them as best I can! How about a drabble a day for the next 50 days? And I'll try to make them all luna, but let me know of some other pairings that you like so that if one prompt strikes me differently, i might be able to use the correct pairing for the mood!
That sounds good! Other pairings? From HP, or what? I imagine that if you're stricken with a different muse, that regardless of the pairing, it will be fantastic. c:< So if you're feeling like taking a different road, I leave the pairing up to you; after all, you're the writer accommodating me, here, haha!
Haha well it is sort of your request! I suppose the question I'm asking is do you mind yaoi/yuri pairings? I took a look at your fave section and gallery to try to get a feel for it and I'm still kinda going "Weeeelllll maaaaybe...." lol! Just let me know! I'm glad to know you're open minded as far as the pairings I pick though! I might bounce around on fandoms...it just depends.
Oh no, I don't mind yaoi and yuri at all, haha. I love just about everything under the sun. q: And I've found that the more room a writer has when under request, the more fun they have with it. I want you to enjoy yourself.
