Drabble 2: An accident [27 Jul 2010|09:31pm]
The flowers which had initially dropped their pollen on the polished surface were now dropping their petals on top in haphazard fashion. The vase looked bright, cheerful, pretty with its contents spent, sparse and lifeless. Bought on a weekend away it had heralded such promise as an icon of love.

True love equals a mini break. It was a cliché, stolen from a film enjoyed with friends, but a maxim for life from then on amongst the group. The mini break had been an accident, an accident waiting to happen. And the vase, a souvenir, followed it onto the floor.

Prompt 1: The sun [27 Jul 2010|06:44pm]
If only.

She could put on the good shoes, the ones that brought a smile to her face. Forget about the useless man, forget about the scratch on her car, the weeds in her garden, the bills piling up in the letter-rack in the hall.

Red and shiny the shoes brought the sun to dark winter days, poking out beneath the hems of her black office trousers making interminable meetings seem shorter and bearable.

Why had she made the rule? Not to rely on the shoes but to wait for the sun when all it did was rain, rain, rain ...

Hey!

To new friends a big hello! *waves* To older friends I am so sorry I owe you replies to your lovely comments. *hugs*

I've been absent for a really long time. It's over a month since I posted an update in potterverse100 and I've not written a word for my summer challenge for far too long. Truthfully I think I'm going to be more or less absent for at least the next week, and perhaps a fortnight. But then, I hope, my head will become my own once more and there will be more fic!

Thank you for bearing with me. I will be back!!

Title: New father
Author: apostrophe_ess

Rating: G
Prompt: For potterverse100, number 76 - Harry. Prompt table here. Chronological list here.

June is a really hard month work wise, I'll be back to my usual diligent self in a couple of weeks. Also as I'm a lousy friend I missed a birthday or two, please can this say Happy Birthday in at least a temporary way for now?

Title: In love and in lust
Author: apostrophe_ess
Disclaimer: Everything belongs to JKR, I merely gain from playing these games in her playground.
Pairing/Character: Mainly James, but also Lily and Harry
Word Count: 748
Rating: G - yes really, despite the title!
Prompt: For potterverse100, number 9 - Love. Prompt table here. Chronological list here.
Summary: As the tear that has formed in the corner of his eye slips over his cheek James considers what made this day possible.
Author's notes: I'm really trying to make these 100 stories link into one long one, but at the same time for each of them to stand alone totally unreliant on any other. The scene that is played out in this one isn't how I intended to treat it - I thought what plays out within might fill three or four stories. Maybe I'll write smaller snippets into individual ones later. Oh, and I haven't forgotten the serious implications of the time - that will come later, too.

In love and in lustCollapse )

Chronological story order [30 May 2006|09:36pm]
Because the prompt table doesn't follow a logical order chronologically, I decided to make a list of all my potterverse100 stories in exactly that order. And because one day there will (hopefully) be exactly one hundred of them, I've hidden the chronological list behind a cut!Collapse )
