A Drabble a Day in May? Drabble #1 for Remus Lupin.

Well, maybe not a drabble a day, but I’m going to aim for 20 drabbles over the course of the month.

Lightning fast readsEach 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.

“The Fifth Gryffindor” posted to Fanfiction.net

The Fifth Gryffindor image for ffnetI have posted “The Fifth Gryffindor” to fanfiction.net this week. This one-shot is, I think, a bit different from most of my fics, in tone, focus, perspective, and style.

We hear about the Marauders, James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew, but there was a fifth Gryffindor wizard in their year. Here’s his story.

Characters: James Potter, Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew, Remus Lupin, Severus Snape, Edward Burton.
