Won Third Place

Hurrah!  My Drabble "There Once Was a Savior Named Granger" came in 3rd in the DMHGChallenge March 2011 Drabble competition.  The prompt was "murder".  I'm quite pleased!  :) I've re-posted it, below.

Title: There Once was a Savior Named Granger...
Rating: PG
Warnings: Death Eaters!

His family had turned to the Light,
At the end of the battle that night.
Because they had strayed,
Some Death Eaters, betrayed,
Wanted Draco to die, out of spite.

His parents would be left distraught,
So to murder him Dolohov sought,
“And he will be slain,
Their Shields cast in vain!
Those traitors will suffer,” he thought.

But a bushy-haired lassie named Granger,
Charged forward to duel the near-stranger,
Since the pale, blond-haired boy,
(She called him “Malfoy”),
Hadn't seen the imminent danger!

Their wands brandished high, green lights were cast -
And Antonin Dolohov lay finished, at last.

I voted this #1. I think it deserved a higher place, honestly, as it is BLOODY HARD to limmerick anything, much less a prompt like 'murder' - AND make it good, as you did here. That is one of my favorites I've ever seen, quite truthfully.

Congrats all the same!!! Your talent continues to amaze me, dahling! :)

Oh, no worries! You're allowed to friend whom you want especially to stalk them to keep in touch with. Just remember that if you haven't introduced yourself or had some contact yet, like we did at the Dramione drabbles, then they might no friend you back is all.

*hugs* (sorry, Hufflepuff here, expect mucho hugs in future!)
