a fable for fountains

havsgast  asked:

Harrymort AU with 30-year Voldemort, and Harry being a gorgeous archer with ancient looking bow and artows??

I ended up going for a Hogwarts battle AU and outsider POV here just because of aesthetics *-*


Luna watches as Voldemort marches onto the grounds of Hogwarts, surveying the lines of students scared into submissiveness with a satisfied smile on his face. 

Voldemort is more handsome now than the glimpses Luna caught of him at Malfoy Manor. He has dark hair and red lips and a straight nose, and looks no older than thirty; Luna wonders if he found the fabled Fountain of Youth. 

Voldemort’s very body language commands respect, and his Death Eaters stand proudly around him. That is until the first arrow flies in and stabs one of them right through the abdomen. 

Harry runs nimbly into the grounds as the students murmur amongst themselves excitedly, some even cheer.

Harry looks beautiful, too, tall and lean, his long hair pulled back into a ponytail and braided intricately at the sides. He carried a bow that looks to be carved like a woven forest from silver, glinting in the sun. It looks like something out of an elven fairytale. The bows that fly gracefully from his weapon look just as ancient and beautiful, and Harry wields the bow and arrows with refined skill.

It is a pity that Luna doubt he’ll be able to kill his soulmate. Not that Harry knows that Voldemort is his soulmate, and they’re certainly not soulmates in the conventional means, but Harry’s soul is definitely touched by Voldemort’s and that can only mean one thing.

As Luna watched Harry dance through the fighting Death Eaters and Order members, she feels sad that Harry’s true love was well…Voldemort. But Luna supposes if anyone could ever learn to love Voldemort it would be Harry, whose heart is purer than anyone she knows. 

October Monster Drawing #17: Florida Skunk Ape!  Or Florida Swamp Ape.  Different folks call it different things.  Me, I reckon that, like the monkeys of Silver Springs*, it was an animal (I’m guessing an orangutan, or more than one) left or escaped during the filming of a B jungle picture and set up shop along I-75.  Though I also dig the idea that it’s an indigenous species that attacked conquistadors when they came to close to the fabled fountain,  Either way, Pee-yoo!

*yes, I know the Tooey version of the monkey story, I prefer the Tarzan version, anachronistic though it may be)

The first show will bring to life two fables from The Tales of Beedle the Bard – “The Fountain of Fair Fortune” and “The Tale of the Three Brothers” (which was featured in the seventh film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1”). Performed by a troupe of four from the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts, this trunk show uses scenic pieces, props and puppetry fabricated by Emmy-award-winning designer Michael Curry.

 The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley opens this summer at Universal Studios Florida.
