A series of 100-word drabbles that I've been meaning to post for a while now. Ooops.

His first steps back on Earth are shaky, as if the legs that support him are new although the body is not. He lurches, arms wavering to balance him in a way that suggests he’s lost some essential part of him, some other balancing limbs. His steps are uneven, and his path weaves from side to side, suggesting drunkenness. He isn’t drunk, merely newly reborn.
Slowly, gradually, his awkward steps even out, becoming the smooth and graceful glide he is known for. His arms sway slightly, and he is sinuous in motion again.
Crowley hates adjusting to his new bodies.

When he came back, against the odds, he wasn’t returned but reborn. His emergence from the Veil was undignified, lacking the grace that his fall had held. He crumpled when he stood, before pulling himself back up and teetering on legs that had borne him so long ago. Child’s steps, puppy steps, but he persists knowing he wants out of the room of the Veil. The further he goes from the fluttering arch, the less he lurches, muscles stretching into lost grace once more. His gait shifts, becoming bounding grace and energy, becoming a running dog and smooth, fast escape.

[These two were actually inspired by internet-caused joint/muscle seizure, i.e. I'd spent so long online my back/legs were stiff, and came from me staggering around trying to get my legs back.]

When he was younger, Remus held a sobbing Sirius and rocked him to sleep, contemplating how the House of Black is breaking him, breaking the once and former heir.
Later, Remus knows than even though the House of Black may have weakened Sirius, cracked him along his stress points, it was Remus himself who hit the breaking point. Who uttered nine little words that, after the Incident, started the shattering of Sirius and could never be taken back. He could never repair the fractures he’d caused, with those coldly hissed words.
“Your mother would be so proud, Son of Black.”

Here, in this arena, in this battle, Ron was all-powerful. Here, and only here, could he truly shine, step from the shadow of his two best friends. Where he sat, his chair a throne, surveying the threat against him. A futile threat, his trap was set and he need only trigger it.
On this board, Ron isn’t King because to be King is to be vital but useless. Ron knows he is not one single piece on the board, but all of them. Here, in his element, he cannot be defeated.
Here, and only here, Ron is their God.

Sirius smiled, secretly, as Remus pushed him down onto his bed in their dorm. It wasn’t infrequently that the smaller boy would let himself be like this, let himself take control like this. Anyone observing their relationship from the outside would think that Sirius was always the dominant one, and Remus more submissive. But they didn’t know Remus, didn’t know this strong, feral lover who was fastening Sirius’s hands firmly to the bedposts with his own tie. Didn’t know about the darker, wolf side of Remus that he kept controlled so harshly.
This feral side was Sirius’s, and Sirius’s only.

Yay! Thank you! *hugs*
That one came about from a mental image I had, of a role-reversal type situation where Remus holds a sobbing Sirius, rather than the other way round, (which seems more common), and later sticks the knife in where he knows Sirius is most vulnerable.
I didn't even know that had such a detailed explaination. Oh well. :D

Dom!Remus is so cool. The actual prompt was 'ties'.
*hugs back*

these are all wonderful - it really takes a certain sort of skill to be able to convey this much in just 100 words and few people can pull it off. thanks also for introducing me to [livejournal.com profile] cugami's artwork - it's beautiful :-)

Thank you! *preens*
It is, isn't it? I love that Ron picture, and her other stuff is brilliant.

Ok, the last one was kinky (not necessarily a bad thing) and the rest were surprisingly great! I especially like the Ron one. Why are your longer ones never this good? The grammar was quite well used in them aswell- whats wrong with you/? Are you feeling quite well? Are you sick? I agree with a few of the other posts as well -the Remus holding Sirius one was fantastic- really conveyed a clear image in so few words. Well done!! More importantly, keep it up!!
