The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Ganked from dramaturgy, because I am bored but don't feel like doing whole drabbles.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you one sentence from that story.

Since I am a)feeling silly, 2)a little evil, and D)aware that this IS, after all, only one sentence...

...remember that story you didn't write, about the first time Dumbledore met the giant squid, and how it impacted DD's decision to let it continue living in the lake after he became headmaster?

Heh. (Don't hurt me.)

... right, sure. That one.

As the water of the lake closed over his head, he saw Aberforth's pet goat looking down over the edge of the raft, and thought, So... this is how it ends.

Something from Daniel and Mira's story. I can't get enough of those two!

As weddings went, it was a sloppy, slipshod affair--no flowers, the groom in dirty camouflage shorts, the bride only slightly cleaner in khaki, a slightly singed flower in her hair the only nod to appearances.

Faith/Westley story set after Sancutuary - maybe he starts visiting her in jail?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 16th, 2007 04:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
The visiting room was little more than an expanded cell, and for the first time since Wesley had met Faith, she looked like the least dangerous person in the room.

What Revenge of the Sith would have been if various people had had their heads properly connected (meaning Anakin, various Jedi, and perhaps anyone who thought Anakin's response to his wife's impending death should have been to shrug it off).

Oh, and that includes Padme who doesn't suddenly go into the dumbest case of post partum depression on record and express zero interest in her kids or her own survival.

Right. All that in a sentence. Sheesh, I'm presumptious.

In one sentence. Hmm.


Padmé watched the funeral pyre from the crowd, draped in a ragged blanket that Yoda had scrounged up for her from the wreckage of the Temple; he was sure that Anakin had no idea she was here, that he believed her dead--which was as safe as she could be with Palpatine out for her head--but Padmé wasn't quite as certain.

The one where Vega Black realises that she wants to marry Jack Potter, and then has to convince (a) her uncle, and (b) the man himself?

It occurred to her while she was setting out tea for his friends from the ministry, a job she'd done habitually since she'd left Hogwarts, as he'd always been a wretched host and she felt that she at least owed him what social advancement was hers to give.

I loved the story you wrote about Ron tasting firewhiskey for the first time.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 16th, 2007 10:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
After thinking, I'm going to kill the twins for daring me to do this, Ron guessed that he shouldn't have been surprised when the charm made him see their funeral, a jolly affair involving fireworks and a clown.

The AOTC AU wherein Anakin [who had never been a Jedi] was the bounty hunter hired by Fett to assassinate Senator Amidala.

Any chance of success disappeared when he looked through the window at the sleeping woman.

The Star Wars AU where Anakin decides that being with Padme is more important than being a Jedi, and tells the Council about his secret marriage. Of course, then the two have to go elsewhere to build a new life. And Palpatine, angry that his target slipped away, is eager for revenge.

Good luck getting that in one sentence.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 16th, 2007 10:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
(I actually wrote one something like that, though I wrote it between TPM and AotC, and didn't get all the facts right. Or, like, any of them.)


"Hush," Padmé whispered, wrapping little Shmi tightly in her blanket, eyes wide as she watched the shaking roof or the storm cellar, the pale blue light cast by Anakin's lightsaber rendering everything ghostlike.

Remember the one where...

Remember that HP/LotR/Buffyverse crossover you wrote where Buffy mistook Snape for a vampire amidst all the confusion surrounding the identities of the nearly identical white-haired wizards? That was fun.

Re: Remember the one where...

The stake exploded in her hand before she got there.

The story where Harry and Hermione find Ron dead at the hands of Voldemort.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 17th, 2007 03:17 am (UTC) (Link)
"I'd never had anyone to share with before," Harry said, kneeling beside the grave.

How about that one you wrote about Hermione (sp?) and her explanation to the sorting hat of why Griffindor would be a better choice than Ravenclaw. (Sorry I admit it I am rubbish at spelling, sorry.)

fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 17th, 2007 03:19 am (UTC) (Link)
Really, I understand your point about Ravenclaw and books, but I've read Hogwarts, A History, and we're both quite aware that a lot of notable Gryffindors--including Dumbledore--are avid readers!

The one where Harry realizes that dumping Ginny was a stupid thing to do and proceeds to remedy his mistake.

...yeah, so I'm feeling fluffy. :)
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 17th, 2007 03:20 am (UTC) (Link)
She was sitting in the garden, playing with a gnome, and Harry realized that the speech he was actually going to make was entirely different from the one he'd meant to repeat.

I've always been rather fond of the one who haven't written yet, with Granny Tonks and Ollivander haggling over the cost of Ted's wand.

(Actually, I'd really like to read that story, if you ever feel bored enough to write it out in full. I'd like to see more of old Mrs Tonks.)
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 17th, 2007 03:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Actually, that does sound fun.


Ted tried unsuccessfully to hide under the counter as soon as he saw Mum's eyes start to glitter.

How about a first encounter between Ginny and Luna?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 17th, 2007 02:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Stella Lovegood looked on carefully as the little redheaded girl from across town first tugged on Luna's long hair, then walked around her, wide-eyed, then stopped and lisped, "Are you really a little girl? I thought I was the only one!"
excitedrainbow From: excitedrainbow Date: April 17th, 2007 02:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ahahaha! That Luna one is genius. It really is a very Luna thing to say. Hmm, how about that story where Hermione and Ron inadvertently discover a Horcrux in the middle of a row?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 18th, 2007 04:35 am (UTC) (Link)
"Oh, bloody--" Ron began, but his voice was cut off as cleanly as if Hermione had cut him with a knife or an answer; the fact that she had suddenly dropped the argument was more important than anything she might have said.

(I love how semi-colons can make two sentences fit the meme rule...)
