Rating: G.

Fandom/Spoilers: Harry Potter. Books and movies.

Summary: Draco. A dare.

Disclaimer: Rowling, not me.

Notes: For the hp100 First Time challenge.

Draco went to London on a dare. No wand, no broom, no Floo powder, just some Muggle money (fifty pounds) in his pocket and Harry's words ("you'd be lost, Malfoy") ringing in his ears.

He wasn't lost. He had only to stay for the afternoon. But he had to buy something, or nobody (Harry) would believe him.

Draco joined a queue, bought a ticket for some sort of play. The stub would do for proof.

The lights went down. The curtain rose. The trailers rolled. The movie started. Draco's mouth dropped open.

Three days later, Draco was still in London.

It seems like most of your HP fic has come recently. That means you're currently obsessed? I really frickin' hope so.

I have wondered a lot about wizards and the muggle world. This was sort of like a tiny hit of crack for me because of that.

I could see the look on Draco's face when the movie started. lol

but what everyone else doesn't get it is that the only reason draco stayed in london for 3 days is because i went to go see that movie with him. but we didn't watch the movie...

That so sooo cute.

I love London...I suffer from constant abstinence when I'm not there. Which is pretty much all of the time, since I've been there for a total of 15 days...

This is the best part, I say:

"The lights went down. The curtain rose. The trailers rolled. The movie started. Draco's mouth dropped open.

Some of your fics I love because I detest the possibility of it actually happening so much. They're like watching a car crash: facinating, cool, and absolutely horrifying.
Some of them I love because they fill me up with warm fuzzys and I just want to cuddle up on the couch with a stuffed annimal afterwards.
In both instances, the fics are absolute perfection.

Yes! That's fantastic! I feel I truely am on the same wavelength for your way of thinking and writing. Oh, I like this one a lot. Well done.

heyy!! that was groovy. the last couple of sentences were just so great. i love how you can say so much in so few words, by allowing us to read between the lines, as that tired old phrase goes.

i have never liked drabbles that much before today, but as you can probably see from all the comments you've been getting in the last hour, i definitely like YOUR drabbles very much.

It's been a long time since I've enjoyed gen as much as I enjoy slash. :)

Sara @ July 29, 2005
