I liked this because it was written in Myrtle's voice, and also because the line The wand tip crackles and smolders as it maps a freckled collarbone, prods a budding nipple, burrows into the slick pink down there. was ridiculously hot. ^^
If it's gonna happen in her bathroom, it's gotta be written from her POV, I figured. I really never imagined writing Myrtle, but I'm glad you appreciated it! Sorta cheated on that fave line, perhaps, but ooh, I couldn't resist a bit of that sort of thing either. Thanks! *g*
*falls down in pits of laughter* I loved the last line!
I'm happy I could entertain you! A good drabble should have a little twist at the end, I thought, and I'm tickled mine worked for you.
Why do I feel like giving Myrtle a great big hug? :p
Really, this was really clever, written from a voyeur's point of view, and the Cruciatus, and you really captured Myrtle's 'poor me' mentality. *g*
Why do I feel like giving Myrtle a great big hug?
You're definitely more kind-hearted than I -- I was seeing her as sort of a pervy self-centered git. I'm very pleased that you liked my Myrtle -- sorting out how to write in her voice was definitely a challenge. Thank you!
*dies* OMG, that's so wrong. I love it!
I love that you are grooving on the wrongness! Wrongness is really what I was going for -- I'm addicted to it. Yay wrongness!
Ooh! *dies of glee* That's too cool! Rock on, honey.
I'm so glad you liked it! It was indeed fun.
This is amazing! I love it!! You have captured the mood and the dark sexuality of their encounter so well -- plus, how did you know that a character coming while under the cruciatus curse was one of my kinks?
Thank you so much for this beautifully written, beautifully imagined drabble!!
You're very welcome! I'm so so happy you enjoyed it, yay! It was truly a delightful experiment, so thanks to you for providing the impetus to write it (and of course thanks to lonestarkate
too for organizing the hpfdc).how did you know that a character coming while under the cruciatus curse was one of my kinks?
Well, you are a Bella fan, and what's more Bella than that? *g*
(And by the way, I finished the paper -- your fairies did the trick!)
I like making fangirls giggle! Hee.
In Academia - ?
i can't believe you wrote this in 123 words. i love so many things about it - myrtle's voice, the irony, and of course the line about the wand tip. but most of all i am in awe of how wonderfully concise it is.
Why thank you! The fandom who I thought told me a drabble could officially be 123 words claim they said no such thing, but I suppose the important part is the discipline of sticking to a word limit -- even if it's a made-up one. I never could have made it to 100, anyway. But it was a wonderfully obsessive-compulsive challenge to keep it short and exact, and I'm very happy to hear that it paid off in the conciseness that you're appreciating.
Loving the Myrtle POV, and its odd juxtaposition with the darkness of what is actually happening. Bizarre and wrong, yes, but in a good way. :)
Thanks! I was definitely trying to create some creepy resonances and characterizations with that very juxtaposition, so I'm quite gratified that you noticed.
obviously I'm too lazy to post an actual comment :P. and hee, thanks! (my first drabble ever!)
