valis2: Stone lion face (drawn default lion 3)
I've been ruminating about fandom and fannish culture and this is what came out. This does not really have a connection to it but...that's what I've been thinking about lately.

Keep in mind that I am not a poet. I am a bad poet in poet's clothing. ~800 words. I have borrowed lines from The Odyssey.

Title: The Dark Veil
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: RL/SS
Summary: Remus knows exactly who he's brought into his bed.
Disclaimer: JKR, Scholastic, and Warner Bros all own the Potterverse. I make no money from this work of fiction.
Warnings: Poetry (set of haikus), angst, slash, but nothing graphic.
Note: Companion poem to "To Capitulate." Both poems form part four of my series of Snupin-themed haikus, but it isn't necessary to read the others first (or at all). Find the rest here: Treachery, Through These Walls, A Taste of Honey. Beta-read by the ever-lovely [livejournal.com profile] julian_black.

My love, black-winged and
cruel, molten-tongued, razor-lipped,
stark, incandescent.

A huge thank you to all of you for making me feel so much better. It was so nice that you took time out of your busy lives to send a hug or happy thought my way. You are such a wonderful flist! I really, really, really appreciate it.

*hugs*

And now for a wombat song. Stick with it, it gets funnier in the end. I hope.

I spoke with one of my dearest friends, [livejournal.com profile] blumsmile, tonight. She's one of those "arc" friends, someone who has seen you at your best, and your worst, and knows you so well after all these years. We've been friends since we were about fourteen.

She asked me about my lion statue obsession.

So here it is...the poem that started it all. I wrote it right after I returned from Venice (in 1997, I think). Mostly uncorrected, just as I wrote it. It isn't perfect, but it encapsulates a moment for me, and that's what is important.

The last bit is talking about the lion in this particular icon, btw.

Ah, the toasty little poems...yum. )
