The prompt words are hidden.

I'd really like reviews.. they help alot!

Prompt Word: Addiction

title: Addiction
fandom: Harry Potter
charachters: Muggles
rating: PG-13
229 words

At first it was just a duty.

Then we noticed the thrill of watching them burn, thier shrieks and cries. The way that the heat and flames wrapped around their burning bodies.

We became addicted.

Addicted to the way they screamed as they burned, their pleads, the way their hair let out that noxious smell. Addicted to the way they shouted, and the flames would change colours around them. Addicted to the way the flames grew larger, wrapping around them until their was nothing more to see.

When the flames died down, we saw the scattered ashes lying everywhere. There were no bones to be found. But we never looked deeper. The memory of the power that we held drowns us of all doubts.

I guess that that was our downfall.

The witches grab us and throw us into the flames. And now we are not the merciless masters, but the victims. And it is no longer their screams that ring out into the night: it is our own.

They pull out their ‘magic’ sticks at the fire shouting louder and louder. “Incendo! Incendo! Incendo!”

We know that it is over.

And yet we know as well that the fight will not end. The Church supports us not the witches. We were only doing our duty.

Only it is not the duty of Witch Burners to become addicted.

Prompt word: Envy.

Title: Envy
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: PG
Pairing: Draco/Cho
Unbeta'd. A little over 15 minutes.

He’s never been the type to stare at a girl for hours. He’s never been the type to wow her with flowers, chocolate, or a new romantic charm. Mostly he parades himself, letting the woman make the first move.

And yet, he found himself staring at a certain Cho Chang one sunny morning in the Dining Hall. She sat in the middle of her giggling cronies of friends, but although she was laughing, she wasn’t looking at any of them.

She was staring out towards the Gryffindor table, where a certain boy with jet-black hair and bright green eyes was returning her gaze, where they were having an entire conversation through their eyes.

Draco turned away from the direction of the Ravenclaw table, and began to rip his toast into small peices.


He saw them again, and this time they were holding hands. He shared a glance with Pansy, and she called out to them, taunting them. Draco smirked. Cho’s eyes welled up with tears, and Potter shoved his hands into his pockets.

Draco and Pansy walked through the shops in Hogsmeade, stopping at the Three Broomsticks for a drink. Granger and Loony were sitting together in a small booth by the window, Granger looking impatient and annoyed and Loony looking dreamy as ever.

Draco turned to Pansy, and began to talk. Pansy started on a long ramble about the Slytherin Quidditch Team while Draco stared out the window.

A noise jarred the conversation as a woman who he knew very well barged into the shop. She sat at the table with Granger and Loony, and sighed dramatically. Granger snorted as Rita Skeeter grumbled.

“Wonder what that’s about... you don’t think that Granger found out about Rita’s... you-know...” Pansy whispered across the table. Draco shrugged.

Minutes later, Potter burst into the shop.

“Isn’t he supposed to be with Chang?” Pansy asked loudly.

Draco shrugged, but inside he was beaming, Potter looked harried and frustrated. And that could only mean one thing. Cho dumped him.

Draco turned to Pansy smiling, and drank a hearty swig of butterbeer, refusing to admit that he, Draco Malfoy, had ever been envious of Harry Potter.

HEY JULIA! Haven't talked to y'all in a while...

These are really great! Sorry I'm not a very good reviewer. But I like them. Especially the first one. And the second one. *sigh*

I like the style that you wrote the first one in, it's sort of powerful if that makes any sense...?

And the second one... I must say that Cho/Malfoy actually makes a strange sort of sense... ^^

Great job, mate!

Julia: Ravenclawcho_malfoy837 on October 4th, 2006 10:44 pm (UTC)

I like the first one better... it's not that good, but I like it for the same reasons...

The second one is horrible, cut cute because it's Draco/Cho... *sighs dreamily*

Hey, D/C makes loads of sense... well, not really, but it's fun to ship a small ship.

Thanks mate!

I like the first one because it's so different than everything else I've read in the fandom... :S

Draco/Cho does in some odd sense make sense. Haha, that made no sense (I make myself laugh way too much) 'cause they're both not really minor not really major charactors who are suffering quite a lot AND LIKE TO CRY WAY TOO MUCH!!

Small ships are always good. Hope on The Neville/Luna express, that's fun! :)

I like Neville/Luna, but I don't actively ship it... I like reading it... I ship Luna/Dean, just 'cos I'm cool like that.

I <3 Small ships. They are my life.... Blaise/Pansy anyone?
Rach: Luna Lovegoodx_racheelia_x on October 14th, 2006 08:33 pm (UTC)

Neville/Luna is <3.

Luna/Dean...? How do you even come up with these things?
