Drabble: Time Approaches (Theo PG13)  
Title: Time Approaches
Prompt: My time has come. Theo
Characters/Pairing: Theodore Nott
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: dark world
Word count: 100
Summary: Theo’s time is approaching.
A/N: 10 prompts-10 days with delayed_poet.

Theo knew the time approached. He could feel it, vibrations in the air that prickled the back of his neck. He could see it in the gazes of the purebloods who looked to him in the streets, and in the contemplative looks of the sympathetic Muggleborns and half-bloods.

It came with fear and whispers behind closed doors. It was in the amount of work he put into trying to make things better, in how it increased every time he completed something.

Then it was here. Theo’s time had come. He stepped up to help make his world a better place.

Nice! You totally had me thinking it was going to be a terrible thing, but Theo stepping up to make things better, totally a great thing! :)

Excellent use of the prompt!

I contemplated making it a bad thing, but then I decided I didn't want to imagine killing him or something.

First I read the ending as happy. Then on second read I realized that "better" is subjective. For all we know Theo might subscribe to the Pureblood agenda, whatever that is ;-)

Mm, this is set in a specific universe, but I can see the ambiguity since you're not familiar with that. He's actually middle-of-the-road, against both pureblood and muggleborn propaganda.
