Title: I’d Hate To Have To Punish You
Word count: 400
Characters/pairings: Ron/Draco
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.
Author’s Notes: This was written for the current challenge at rondracodrabble, scars.

Draco knew he had to concentrate. This interview could decide whether he got a cushy Ministry job or ended up scooping ice-cream between ducking hexes from irate civilians. And this particular probation officer had no reason to like him. Draco should be charming him, saving his future.

But Ron Weasley’s bloody forearms were getting in the way.

When Draco had first entered the office, he’d sniffed disdainfully at the sight of Weasley whisking off his robes to reveal Muggle clothes beneath. Weasley gave him a sharp look, but let it go. He grabbed Draco’s file, and pushed up his sleeves.


Draco had a distinct weakness for muscled forearms as it was; to see them revealed by sleeves pushed scruffily up to the elbows would have set his heart beating faster under all circumstances. But these forearms were roped with thick scars, the marks of battle. Tendons flexed as Weasley flipped through the file, and Draco gulped.

“Malfoy.” Weasley’s voice was iron; Draco thought he had probably said it already, while Draco was mesmerised. He glanced up into very blue eyes. Would it be wrong to seduce one’s probation officer?

“Yes, Weasley?”

“You’re aware of the terms of your probation?”



“All right then –monitoring of your current wand and no buying a new one; being on the Enemies of the State register, so we know where you live; no jobs involving security; no leaving the country. Plus, you can’t go within a mile of schools, because of the Hogwarts attack.”

Draco’s face felt hot. “I see,” he said miserably. His eyes landed on Ron’s arms again. This time he only thought of the other scars on Weasley skin. What he’d done to Bill Weasley.

“Let’s talk about your options.”

They were woefully limited, but Draco knew Weasley would dislike complaints.


Weasley’s eyes were once again fixed on the parchment in front of him. Disgruntled, Draco wondered how to make the pretty blue eyes meet his again. It was nicer than thinking about his future, or his past.

“It looks like you’ve been a good boy so far...”

He swallowed.

“Good!” Weasley grinned. “I’d hate to have to punish you.”

Draco almost swallowed his tongue.

“Don’t look like that,” Weasley said, obviously misinterpreting his expression. “I just think it’d be good if we could all move on.”

Dazed, Draco blinked into blue eyes as bright and open as the sky. “Absolutely.”

Oh, that's another pairing and situation with a lot of potential. *g*

“I’d hate to have to punish you.”
I think you might be alone with that opinion, Ron. lol

*grins* I couldn't agree more!

I think Ron may end up punishing Draco in my ficadron fic. IT IS GOING TO BE SO OBVIOUS WHICH FIC IS MINE.

I am in awe of the way you write Ron/Draco. Truly.

:D I look forward so much to your comments! Thank you.

And there will be MOAR. After I've finished your Ron/Draco-in-knickers fic. ;)

XD I'm your fangirl. Your work is amazing.

It's just...it's so good. Draco and his weakness for muscled forearms. And how he can't stop staring at Ron's. And Ron's completely oblivious "I'd hate to have to punish you" comment that made Draco swallow his tongue. sdkfjlsa

I have this oh-so-happy image of Ron pinning Draco against the wall or something, with his forearms on either side of his face, and Draco completely losing his mind over it.

After I've finished your Ron/Draco-in-knickers fic.

*blinks* ...Well. This will be continued, you know. Perhaps that could happen. SINCE IT IS SO HOT.

Haha!!! Oh how I love that naughty mind in Draco's very pretty head!!! And I wonder if Ron's really as innocent here as he seems...? More please???
7th-Nov-2009 03:47 pm (UTC)
I love Draco's naughtiness too!

I wonder if Ron's really as innocent here as he seems...?

No comment. :P There will be more, though!

Oh, how interesting <3 I never see Ron has a sexy boy but descriping his arms and scars... Quite yummy. X)

Poor little Draco ;_; I feel so bad for him.

Ron is a sex beast. *nods* I'm writing him with Draco in knickers right now.

Poor little Draco ;_; I feel so bad for him.

Heh, and this is why nobody believes you're a kinky minx! He is indeed a poor little Draco, though.

I love how you took it from fluff to angst and then back again so effortlessly. Is this the beginning of a series? *hopes*
7th-Nov-2009 03:44 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks! I was a bit worried about how it wouldn't stick to one emotional place, so that's great to hear.

And yes. Yes it is. *headdesks* On the plus side, Ron-as-probation-officer really, really pleases me.

Ron/Draco \o/

I like this very much. Ron/Draco is awesomesauce.
7th-Nov-2009 03:44 pm (UTC)
Yay! I do love me some Ron/Draco, even though I've written only one proper one-shot featuring them. (I'm working on two more, though.)

Awesome. Ron is so inadvertently sexy. Love it so much. Draco has his work cut out for him...

I have such a thing for men's forearms. Strange but true.
