Title: There Was A Young Auror From Essex
Words: 1775
Rating: high PG
Prompt: It was a still, warm day in early July. As one looked out over the flat Essex country, lying so green and peaceful under the afternoon sun, it seemed almost impossible to believe that, not so very far away, a great war was running its appointed course.

--Agatha Christie, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. 1924.

Prompt:
Say even that this complete simplicity
Stripped one of all one's torments, concealed
The evilly compounded, vital I
And made it fresh in a world of white,
A world of clear water, brilliant-edged,
Still one would want more, one would need more,
More than a world of white and snowy scents.


- The Poems of Our Climate, Wallace Stevens
Notes: Back to the Alan Radcliffe case. Remus and Sirius misbehave in a ministry loo. *throws hands in the air* They weren't supposed to do that today. Title from Richard III.

Title: In deadly hate, the one against the other (3/3)
Rating: PG for language
Disclaimer: They're not mine. I'm just borrowing them because I like them.
Wordcount: 2465
Prompt: A soft breeze with the slippery concrete black and full of muddy slush, contrasting with the hoarfrost, clean and hung on a tunnel of silent shivering trees (the ones you said you'd like to be), and the birds that screamed at the sun now buried deep down below the ground, beneath the snow, I press my shoulder to this wall between us.
- The Weakerthans, "Without Mythologies"


Notes: Continued from Day 07. It's the first day of term and there are Death Eaters lurking around King's Cross. For information, JKR had a few factual blips in her description of King's Cross (and don't get me started on the films). The station has two parts. The main concourse leads to platforms 1 -8. There's also a seperate area, which joins the main station at an angle, which contains platforms 9 - 12. This can be accessed by walking along platform eight and then across an open area (the normal approach), from Pancras Road or via a long tunnel from the tube station. The other exits from the tube come up on Euston Road, outside the station and within the main concourse. There are two railway lines between platforms 9 and 10. Remus and Alice take advantage of this. The tube station also falls into two parts - the main ticket hall with escalators down to the Northern, Victoria and Piccadilly lines and the much shallower station for the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City. Hence Remus and Sirius only need to use one flight of stairs to reach these platforms.
And, yes, I used to commute that way, and, no, of course I didn't spend boring waits wondering about the logistics of possible Death Eater attacks. Not at all.
I have no idea where my characterisation of Alice Longbottom came from but I like her. So she'll be featuring again. Title from Richard III.

Wordcount: 1380
Prompt: Beneath a night no longer May,
Where only cold stars shine,
One glimmering ocean spreads away
This haunted life of mine;
And, shattered on the frozen shore,
My harp can never wake,--
When will this night of death be o'er?
When will the morning break?
- William Winter, "The Night Watch"


Notes: Done the obvious with this one. Or I would have done if you weren't imagining this, etc. ;)
