Harry pulled him into the room. "It's here." Pushed him in front of the mirror. "Look."

Draco looked. He saw his father on his knees, weeping and begging forgiveness. He saw Voldemort, dead by Draco's own hand, crumbling into dust at his feet.

He saw himself, wand drawn, great and powerful. Death Eaters bowing to him, wizards cowering. Muggles dying as he purified the world.

Draco smiled.

"What do you see?" Harry asked.

Draco turned and touched Harry's cheek. "I see you."

I was trying to eke this out to 100 words and as I edited it, I found it was getting shorter, not longer, so I thought I'd best post before it disappeared entirely.

First, let me say, I love your icon *giggle*.

I think you might have eventually gotten it down to just one word: "You." That would have been interesting, but not nearly as evocative as what you posted, I'm glad you stopped trimming :)

You somehow managed to keep Draco in character - both canon AND fanon. That is, in itself, an amazing feat!

That's because you have such good taste. :)

Draco, Draco, Draco is a difficult one. I like to think he's ambitious, as all good Slytherins should be. And rather evil.

What a concise description of evil ~ it's terrific and terrifying.

Thank you, sweetie. :) Sometimes I'm all about Draco seeing the error of his ways. And sometimes I'm not.

Poor Harry.

Oooh, pretty. (referred by the House of Ill Faith mailing list)
prillalar From: prillalar Date: April 8th, 2003 08:05 pm (UTC) (link!)
Thanks! And thanks as well for letting me know about the ref. I was wondering why I was suddenly getting feedback on last week's drabble. (Not that I *mind*.*g*)
azurelunatic From: azurelunatic Date: April 8th, 2003 08:08 pm (UTC) (link!)
Yep. The good stuff makes its way around...

Oooooooh. Damn girl, you do me so right. Ahahahaha.

No for real, this is so good. Gives me the nice shuddery chills. It's like, perfect. Seriously. Damn.

Damn.

Thank you. I really didn't anticipate the impact this less-than-drabble was going to have. It makes me all fluttery. :)

Holy hell. Ouch.

Also, I'd like to note that 'Misanthropy, Lycanthropy and the Pursuit of Knowledge' is utterly brill.

Wow... I had no idea this was such an old post. Forgive me for my tardiness. Came here by way of a rec from switchknife
prillalar From: prillalar Date: March 2nd, 2004 05:58 am (UTC) (link!)
Thank you! On both counts. :)

You're welcome on both.

GAH. Amazing. Totally amazing. I love the way you view Draco. And Harry. Did I mention that I love this? Gneh. I want to french switchknife for sending me here, and you for writing this. If, you'd have me, that is. *giggle* *coy look* *flashes leg* [/shameless flirt for fics]

>:D

Seriously, this was wonderful.

Yikes. And here is a Draco to look out for. ("Run, Harry, run!")

Tricky Draco. :) Glad you enjoyed!
catastrophicj From: catastrophicj Date: March 2nd, 2004 01:29 am (UTC) (link!)
I love it. Yes. It really is wonderful, even if I still hold hope for a happy (even if odd) ending for the lovely pair, I can totally see something like that being canon even. Brilliant.
prillalar From: prillalar Date: March 2nd, 2004 05:59 am (UTC) (link!)
I'm really glad it worked for you. :)
