    The Two-Step of Death

    The Two-Step of Death by Lady Game

    Summary: In the end, they all dance to the music of two words and a flash of green light. These are the stories of the last ten victims of Lord Voldemort. Drabbles, 1,348 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is a great series of ten interconnected drabbles about the last people to stand in Voldemort’s way. Each is a slightly different tone, but all are pulled around a central theme and idea. A good drabble is like a good poem, and Lady Game hits the mark each time. The extra pleasure comes from the way she connects them, like stanzas.

    Why You Might Not Care: Here there be traditional 100 Word Drabbles, ladies and gentlemen. If you’d prefer to sink your teeth into a good long novel-length rec, then you’ll finish this wanting more. For those of you who appreciate the fine art of the Drabble, this is the icing on the cake, and they leave you satisfied, if also a little depressed. Here lies angst; abandon fluff, all ye who enter here.

    Awards: 2007 Hourglass Award, Drabble or Drabble Collection – First Place; 2007 Round One Quill To Parchment Award – Judge’s Favorite.
