Here is the final drabble for Remus Lupin. Here, he’s joined by Albus Dumbledore. Takes place the seventh of June 1994.
If you enjoy these and you subscribe to rss feeds, I’ve created a feed just for drabble series posted to the blog.
“Leaving Hogwarts … Again”
“We both knew something would happen, Professor.” Remus smiled wanly. “I lasted the year, and I’m not dead. And things could have gone much worse last night.” Continue reading
One-hundred words for Remus. This one is set in the year after he left school.
“You wanted to see me, sir?” Remus asked, as the door closed behind him.
“I’ve got to let you go, Lupin.” Continue reading
The third in this month’s drabbles is a single, just 100 words. Again, this one features Remus Lupin. It’s the end of the seventh year. Rated G.
Remus wasn’t sure where he’d be next month. He’d go stay with Sirius for a week, but no longer. He didn’t want to be beholden. Continue reading
Here’s the second of the May drabbles, again, a double drabble. This one features Lily Evans with Remus; it’s set in their sixth year. Rated G-ish or T-ish.
“Making a Memory”
“What’s wrong, Remus?”
“Nothing.” He threw his sandwich to the giant squid.
Sitting beside him on the big flat rock, Lily put her hand on his shoulder. “You only come here when something’s bothering you.” Continue reading
Well, maybe not a drabble a day, but I’m going to aim for 20 drabbles over the course of the month.
Each week, I’m going to choose a particular Harry Potter character and focus the drabbles on that character. I think it should be an interesting exercise, and I hope that it will keep me writing.
This week’s character is Remus Lupin. I’ll be doing a handful of drabbles with Remus between the first of May and the seventh. When I have a bunch, I’ll post them together on the archives. In the meantime, I’ll be posting them singly here.
Drabbles are one-hundred word mini-stories. Sometimes people use the word “drabble” to describe any kind of very short story, but technically, it should be exactly one-hundred words, not including the title. There are also double-drabbles of two-hundred words, triple-drabbles of three-hundred, etc. I’m not going to hold myself to one-hundred words, but the word count of each little story must be a multiple of one hundred, and I am limiting myself to a maximum of five hundred words. If I can’t keep it to five hundred, I’ll put it aside to develop into a longer one-shot. But rather than meticulously hand-count each word and determine whether hyphenated words count as one or two words, for the sake of simplicity, I will just use WordPerfect’s word count.
Here is the first in the series of drabbles. This one is a double-drabble.
“Of the Family Canidae”
Remus sat back against the shed’s rough wood, the ground hard beneath him, the misting drizzle dampening his hair. Continue reading
