Title: Idle Fixation (Drabble 1/2 & 2/2)
Fandom: Harry Potter
Character: Ron PoV, Draco PoV
Disclaimer: Harry Potter belongs to JK Rowling.
Malfoy was small. Short. Though Ron realised he was about the same height as Harry and Ron didn’t notice that. And it wasn’t like he was slight with it. What was that word Hermione used? Wiry. Suppose it is all that quidditch. Not that Ron had been looking at Malfoy. It’s just when you are going to fight someone you touch them a lot more than you’d realise. And pretty was attractive on a girl, but it was just wrong on a guy. Malfoy’s colouring was probably to blame, he was so bloody pale. And he didn’t have any freckles. He’d probably blind people when naked.
He hated Weasley’s freckles. He was covered in them… or was he? Draco had no idea; arms, face, back of his neck: yes. But how far down did they go? The occasions when Weasley had stretched in class, Draco had noticed a sprinkling on his lower back, where his shirt had ridden up. But he’s not so certain about the strip of stomach he’s seen, because Weasley has a line of hair running through his belly button down to… Draco realises he’s breathing far too heavy for thinking about Weasley.
Erm, Draco is tall. He might even be taller than Ron for all we know, as there's no definite canon comparing their heights. Also, I think Draco might find it difficult to see much of Ron from under the robes. Other than that, though, I love the idea of little fixations that the two of them developed about each other :-)
yeah, I apparently did not think this through! I guess I just think as Ron as tall, and thus anyone of average height would seem small. I forgot how much I assume about characters, I will get other stuff I write beta-ed!
Thanks for the review :)
In most stories Draco is described as smaller than Ron though. Ron is pretty tall in the books.
But anyway, I love this! So kewt. x3
In most stories Draco is described as smaller than Ron though.
True. But it's mostly an inch or so shorter. And yes, Ron is described as tall in the books, but then so is Draco. Considering that Ron mostly hags out with Harry, who used to be a midget and only grew up to human proportions in HBP, while Draco hangs out with Crabbe and Goyle, who are supposedly troll-like, and yet Draco is taller than either one of them, it is entirely possible that Draco would be looking down on Ron.
Now I'm not advocating that everyone should write Draco being taller than Ron. It's just that in the drabble the fact the first thing Ron noticed and fixated on about Draco was him being short didn't ring true. Not when one of the few things we know about Draco's appearance from canon is that he is tall :shrug:
That's so true. Ron hanging around with short people and Draco with tall totally screws up perspective. Huh. Too much fandom for me :D
Aaw. So hot. And Draco wasn't the only one breathing heavy, if you know what I mean *wink* I believe that Ron is taller than Draco, though, so don't feel put upon.
Your drabbles were cute, I loved them.
where in the books does it say that draco's tall? *furiously scours books 1-6*
WHEEEERRREEE? how could i have missed such important info!
oh btw, this is totally going into my favorites because your writing is incredible beyond belief!

i think ron is taller too. The whole weasley family is suppose to be tall right. Anyways i guess i just like the though of dom ron and it is so much easier to be dominant when your taller and more muscular than the other.
