Unforgiving by jlr (Bella/Ginny, Myrtle - dark R) [Jul. 16th, 2004|12:04 pm]
Harry Potter Femmeslash Challenges
title: Unforgiving
by: julie levin russo
for: fuschia (in the HP Femmeslash Drabble Challenge)
the request: Bellatrix/Ginny, in Myrtle’s lav
rating/warnings: R-ish, spectral voyeurism, ambiguously non-con torture
word count: 123 (strictly so; indeed, a drabble)
A bit early, but certainly it's the 17th somewhere, and I got mine so I just couldn't resist...


Noooobody pays any mind to poooor Myrtle. The little redheaded one doesn’t visit for my sake. Best I get is a peek at her curled against the serpent’s sink with her naughty hand inside her panties, deaf to my misery.

Noooobody bothered to tell Myrtle how the dark one knew to find her pleasure in my bathroom. But here she is, waiting for the redhead. With a flick of her wrist, the girl is paralyzed and stripped bare. The wand tip crackles and smolders as it maps a freckled collarbone, prods a budding nipple, burrows into the slick pink down there. There’s screaming. Ignored, I only get to watch.

Noooobody ever fancied Myrtle enough to make me cum while under the cruciatus curse.

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*

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*

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!

I love that you are grooving on the wrongness! Wrongness is really what I was going for -- I'm addicted to it. Yay wrongness!

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 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.

dear projectjulie,

I sort of love you for leaving me a survey answer that says "reconstructionist jew. also I wrote a drabble: http://community.livejournal.com/hpfsc/2880.html." and this is hilarious, creative, and hot.
