Team: Team Ron
Prompt: Fight! Fight! Fight!
Rating: PG
Word count: 100

Fight fight fight

The chant echoes around the hallway. The crowd gathers, taking up the call.

Fight fight fight.

They’re use to this. This is familiar.

Panting, punching, bruising. Blood splatters onto his fist. Pale skin is stained beneath him. White hair spread out on dark walnut.

Fight fight fight.

Purple mottled skin, nail scarred wrists.

And there, curled deep down in his belly. Warm anticipation.

Later. Away from the crowd. Pillowed in silk.

New, and infinitely more dear. Blissfully terrifying and too unknown.

Harder harder harder.

Pale skin, neck stained purple.

Whispers, gasped into quiet places.

Fight fight fight.

Re: Submission VOTE!
There are so many beautiful phrases in this. The contrast is lovely, too, and the parallels. Very physical.

Re: Submission VOTE!
Thank you.

Your lovely comment is a huge relief - I swore off drabbles after a particularly bad experience and this my first attempt since. You have no idea how much I was shaking when I opened your e-mail ;)

Re: Submission VOTE!
Nothing to worry about. Tricky length, drabbles. This is like a prose poem, which works really well. I really like the way you've handled this. The idea is great, but the actual practise is what impressed me most.
