Title: Energy
Word count: 200
Characters/pairings: Ron/Draco
Rating: G
Summary: Ron and Draco fight, then make up.
Warnings: bit of angst
Disclaimer: The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.
Author’s Notes: Written for the JMDC prompt maybe as well as the away prompt at rondracodrabble. Credit for “you have that same energy. All by yourself” goes to mahaliem’s fantastic A Slytherin In Gryffindor Clothing.

“If you’d just try – ”

“Maybe I’m sick of trying,” Draco shouted back. “You’ve no idea – or you wouldn’t give me this bollocks about trying, like that fixes everything – ”

“I know trying isn’t everything,” Ron stormed, his face scarlet. He was looming-close, but Draco refused to back away. “But you could make an effort, show some loyalty – ”

“You’re one to talk about that – everyone knows you ran away from Potter in the woods!”

Ron’s eyes went flat and dull. “Fuck you.” He slammed out.

Draco stared at the door with dry eyes and felt ice flood his body.


He stood in his flat for twelve minutes, shivering. He shouldn’t have said that, what if Ron never came back –

He ran out, determined to Apparate after Ron, and tripped over him. He was sitting on Draco’s doorstep.

Draco couldn’t speak.

“I ran away because I couldn’t take the isolation,” Ron said, staring determinedly at his hands. “I’m used to a big family, I need the energy of something always happening.” He looked up, and pinned Draco with his blue eyes. “You have that same energy. All by yourself.”

Draco collapsed next to him. Ron put his arm round him.

DDDD: This reminds me why I love this pairing, and why it's such a tough as well as strong pairing in my mind -- they can hurt each other so much, but they need each other so much.

This was so beautiful. I think you captured the entire relationship perfectly in so few words.

Great job!

Thank you!! *basks*

I think my love for this pairing grows with each of your drabbles. ♥

Awww, what a lovely compliment! Thank you :D

Oh Ron. *squishes*
See, this is why I love your stories so much. [Today seems to be a day of compliments, catch them while you can!]
I always forget that your stories are fictional, especially since my imagination takes over so easily. Ron and Draco can sometimes be real to me, as strange as that may seem.
But the way this is written makes me smile.
Ron and Draco are so good for each other and I love that neither could really move away from the other because, despite their fights and the ways they hurt each other, they can't leave each other, because the love is worth so much more than the pain. <3

:D *catches compliments and makes sure they cannot get away*

Awww, nice! They really are good for each other, no matter what.

awwww! absolutely adorable! i haven't read much Ron/Draco before, but this was very good.
18th-May-2010 11:57 am (UTC)
:D Thank you! I've been writing way more of it lately, and it's a lot of fun.

Lol at Ron sitting on Draco's doorstep like a cute little puppy. And so nice that Draco says that Ron ran away in the woods... well, not nice... but it's always Draco's mistakes which are summed up so I really enjoyed this. And the explanation why Ron did it... and why he doesn't need to run away from Draco. :D

*takes a photo of them cuddling on the doorstep* Awesome drabble!

I may or may not be semi-stalking you after seeing your other drab *looks around* ;)

:D I love it when that happens! I mean checking out my other stuff, not stalking.

Thank you so much! I LOVE your icon too, btw.

yay! well, I'll definitely be checking out more of your fics. I always get so excited when I find a good author(especially one that writes R/D). So you can look forward to more gushing comments from me (in a non-stalking way of course :p)

Thank you, I adore this one too! :D
