Another TDiR drabble
Still not entirely sure on the drabble posting etiquette on darkisrising100 - have been assuming one drabble per challenge/amnesty. But since I wrote my Alternate Universe drabble and posted it to the community, dozens of questions have been floating around my already overtaxed brain. Typing one of them up in drabble form was an effort to exorcise at least one of these questions...

Medieval Banquet
by Pencil
WC:100 (I think or maybe it was 102)
A/N: Set in the same AU as 'Senior Member' sometime later in the academic year. It started off as a response to the 'Alcohol' challenge on DiR100. Some of you who know me in RL will recognise the relevance of the drabbles title.

The fiery-haired girl stopped by him, cheeks bright from dancing.

“Won’t you join in, Professor?”

“No, thanks, I’ll just watch.”

“Another drink, perhaps?”


Holding back her trailing sleeves, she refilled his goblet.

“Why did they call him the Raven King?”

“Because of his eyes. He has golden eyes like a raven.”

“You miss him.”

Shock went through him like lightening.

“Who are…?”

“Who I am is not important, Will. Who you are is. You destroyed King Bran’s Peace.”

The dancers were no longer students. He met golden eyes across the hall. And knew it was true. Or would be.

Woah. Wow. Okay, now I really want more ;-)

Oh, and for what it's worth, I don't think there are any limits to the number of drabbles you can post in any challenge/amnesty.

Ah, thanks for that! :-) I had originally intended to write a drabble for every challenge in the amnesty I hadn't had a go at yet, and thought I would try and tie them all together. Then I remembered I have a job. :-o

I wouldn't be surprised at all if there is going to be more of this... Like the other ongoing short fic sequence, it's probably going to be sporadic. Mostly cause I don't know what happened/will happen yet!!! ;-)
