Drabble-ette - You're Late  
Title: You're Late
Prompt: 11- Forgive
Character/Pairing: Theodore Nott/Verity O'Shea
Rating: G
Warnings: Is silliness a warning?
Word count: 132
Summary: Theo's running late -- sort of.
A/N: Written for lostbutlooking on IJ from This Prompt Table.

“You’re late,” Verity said, pouting her lips at him.

Theo took out a pocket watch that was tucked into a pocket of his dress robes. “By thirty seconds, Ver,” he said in a voice of fond exasperation that was reserved almost especially for her.

“But late is late,” she said, standing and straightening out her beautiful dress robes. He resisted the urge to childishly stick out his tongue.

“Fine, then I’m late. But you look spectacular, my dear,” he told her, taking her hand and spinning her around so that her robes twirled prettily. Theo could be quite charming when he wished to be.

“Flatter away, dear Theo, but you’re still not forgiven for being late.”

He rolled his eyes behind her back, though a smile curved his lips.

“I saw that.”

I looked at this on the computer downstairs (not logged in) and it gave me an adult content warning. I was a little disappointed when I read it! But then, my mind has been in a bad place all day - Pen and I were discussing Twilight, and she linked to the Wiki that talked about how their skin was hard and cold, and I started to say the after that you wouldn't complain about your bedmate just having cold feet, and then that got me thinking about those cold, marble-like characters actually having sex, and if your skin is hard how to floppy bit flop? When they're floppy, anyway. And for the first time in my life I want to write fan-fiction. Mocking fan-fiction, but... nonetheless.

It's a nice piece, though. Just not very racy. ;)

Lol. No, this one isn't racy. Racy and hot (sort of at least) is the one I posted awhile back with the Hard R warning. I'm actually rather proud of that one ...

Thanks :D

Don't get me started on the whole cold-and-hard thing. Do you understand WHY I prefer warm and fuzzy Jacob now?

I hadn't read it, but I just did. The gender switching in the narrative was a bit confusing because I didn't understand the character, but once I read one of the comments it made sense. Very interesting concept, and I do think you handled it well.

I haven't actually read Twilight yet, so I only have a vague idea. But I'll back slowly away from the topic.

*creeps slowly*

I suppose it is complicated. I tried to make it make sense to someone not in the know. Thanks, though, for giving it a read.

Well, I'll not spoil you then. But you should read it :D

*tracks slow movement with eyes*

Very cute! Are you posting at IJ regularly now?

I have an account, and just friended you, but I don't like the format there as well as here.
Gelseygelsey on June 5th, 2008 06:43 pm (UTC)
Not regular posts, really. Mainly just these drabble things -- they get posted there first, as the people that requested them are there.

I will thusly friend you and you are welcome to request prompts off my posted table :D
