“This one.”

“Are you sure?”

“I’m sure.”

“Did you see the Golden we’ve got up front?”

“I want this one.”

“You know he’s older, right? Not a pup?”

“I know.”

“You know he’s gonna shed that scraggly black hair all over your house, right?”

“Of course.”

“He’s really strong. He’s gonna be a handful sometimes.”

“I can handle that.”

“You’ll bring him back if it doesn’t work?”

“I promise.”

“Alright, but I do have to warn you… he’s got a bit of a mischievous streak.”

“Wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“Then congratulations, Mister Potter. You’ve got yourself a dog.”


To those who are brave enough for  adoption...of all species: Thanks!

And if you don't "get" this fic, well...sorry, mate. Not giving it away.

Love it:)
As an adopter of an older, big, mischievous one with long black hair that gets everywhere, I *love* this fic! Well done, and thanks for the smile:)

Re: Love it:)
Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

As for your kiddo...

OMG! It's Sirius in girl form. (Would that be bitch Sirius? I think it would!) She is adorable! Of course, I'm biased. Meet the late, great Mollydog.

I'm twelve or thirteen here:


And I took this one at twenty-five years of age. Molly died about nine months after this was taken.


I wrote this fic purely as a Harry story of healing. I see him not being able to handle a big, black dog in his life for quite some time after losing both Sirus and Remus. But eventually, as is the way of things, we move on. We heal. And we get a second chance. So I see it going with Harry. The title of this fic refers to both Harry and his new dog star. That said, there is some personal bias involved. I do so love my big, black dogs. I believe you already know Trinity? I adopted her when I knew it was time for Molly to move on. My old girl wouldn't have had it any other way.

The all-dialogue drabble?

It's like crack to me. I so need to change this icon to say "Little Damn Fic Writer," no?

Eeeee! Long live the big black ones - inside HP and out. Molly's a doll in those pics, thanks for sharing:) What kind of mix was she?
As for all-dialogue, I rather like it. Makes the reader work harder to "get" the story, but it feels better that way - sometimes there's such a thing as too much exposition.

Re: Love it:)
Thanks! Mollydog was just that. A dog. Probably Lab-Golden with some Newf thrown in, maybe? Who knows? A dog. A big, hairy, black dog.

As for the words, yeah...I don't know what made me do my first one years ago, but every now and then I just have to do an all-dialogue drabble. One hundred words, and every one of them speech. It's fun to see if you can get a point across that way.

Here's a few more. I think you'll like the third one. The first one is also understandable, even if you aren't familiar with the show. The others not so much.

I've written a few half-drabbles, too. Now, THAT is hard. Fifty words! Whew! It's fun, though! I like my little fics!

PS again:

That middle pic of Molly was taken at Goodwin Lake, atop Jackson Peak, in Jackson, Wyoming. That was a good day.


And the last one, of course, illustrates age-related tapetal difference in dogs. But you knew that, right? *g*

Aw, dunno how I missed this (guess what? you can click the tag that says 'fanfic' and then read the fanfics. Who knew???) but loved it.

And aw, Mollydog. And Ickle Trin!!!!!

Yeah, if someone doesn't get this fic....

Whoa. You can do that? Huh. Who knew? I always thought there was a reason I put that there, but...huh. Idiot.

And as always, thanks for reading. Idiot.
