Title: HC SVNT DRACONES
Fandom: Harry Potter
Length/Rating: 100 words, PG, Gen
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Summary: Written for [livejournal.com profile] hp100 Drip, but the deadline has passed, so now I'm not sure what to do with it. *sighs*

It's one thing to be born a wizard in a wizarding family, quite another to have muggle parents and a muggle world. --only fairy tales-- Most children stumbled from one existence to another, stepping from wading pools into deepwater tides, but not Hermione. She knew --folk tales-- just how much her world was changing. --legends--

Out of place, out of depth, she read to stay afloat. --just myths-- Soaking it in, hording every scrap of information, every drop of knowledge, determined to protect her family, her friends.

Because she knew what was waiting in the dark...

I thought folks might be interested in what constitutes a drabble lifecycle (per my Muses). ^_~ This is everything from the first rough down to the final, plus all the notes in which I poke and prod at the idea until I get it into something I like.

NOTE: This actually took 2-3 days, but I figured I'd just keep updating the original post, to keep it all together. ^_^ (And, of course, I missed the prompt window, so I'm not sure where/if to post it now *sighs*)
