I need a kick in the pants start.

MEME: The first fifteen people to comment on this post with a prompt get to request a drabble from you. In return, they have to post this meme in their journal (though, no pressure). Post all fandoms you’re willing to write for.

Um, the "fandoms [I'm] willing to write for" are pretty limited. I've only ever written extensively for HP, and mostly only about the bad guys. However, technically, I've also written for Bizenghast, Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings, so if you're feeling daring, you can request one of those.

Also, I loosely define drabble here, so it will be at least 100 words, but probably not that exactly.

Whoops, I mistook this for another request and focused it on Voldemort. But it still does have Snape. And a feather boa. And bon-bons.

The muffled whump of the ancient text hitting the floor was not quite the dramatic noise the situation required. The ringing clang of a dropped metal tray rolling into shadows, or the cacophony of a shattered china tea set would have been more appropriate, but Severus Snape was not in the habit of carrying trays or china. Lucius Malfoy, on the other had, was, but he so happened to be empty-handed at this critical juncture.

Standing alone before a giant gilt-edged mirror, looking annoyed at the interruption, was an unusually dressed Lord Voldemort. He still wore his trademark black robe, the severe color contrasting with his deathly pale hands and haughtily poised bald head. But draped around his neck and shoulders was a delicate boa of broad, pale peach-pink ostrich feathers.

“Wow,” said Snape, “I have to admit that I didn’t see this coming.”

“It’s certainly striking,” said Lucius in a conciliatory tone, “but, my Lord, accessorizing is a bit of an art.”

“What are you two on about?” snapped Voldemort. “I’m working on a very important magical experiment here. Can you see my neck?”

“What?” asked Lucius and Snape at the same time, united at last in their confusion.

“My neck,” said Voldemort, talking slowly as if to particularly dim squirrels. “Can you see it?”

“Well,” said Lucius, “no. It’s under that boa.”

“You can see that?” asked Voldemort. “Drat. I thought I had it right this time.” He angrily whipped one trailing end of the boa over his shoulder. “I’d hoped that the all-natural material would be easier to work with.”

Snape debated the wisdom of requesting further information versus backing slowly out of the room. The absurdity of the situation goaded him on: “I’m sorry, what?”

“I’m making invisibility articles. Like a cloak, but not all encompassing. Invisibility boots, gloves, hats, etc.”

“Why would you want invisible clothes?” asked Lucius. “That takes all the fun out of it.”

“And an invisibility feather boa?” asked Snape.

“I was just trying things out,” said Voldemort, sulking a bit. “It doesn’t work anyway.”

“Of course,” said Snape. “Now let me get you some bon-bons before your low blood sugar causes you to swoon.”

I <3 it. I totally had forgotten about this till I read your christmas rant.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!
