Fic: A Sketch for a Portrait: A Nude in Woollen Socks (Remus/Sirius, PG)

Having not contributed to the community this year, I decided to attempt at a tiny bonus text for rs_small_gifts, when I got inspired by dreaminginblack’s prompt at the last moment. I ended up crafting another Sketch for a Portrait in the series of 100-word drabbles about my artist!Remus’s life. And I think the moment I show here follows soon after the latter scene in the small gift I posted two years ago (In Lines of Charcoal). However, the drabble works, of course, also separately.

Under this canopy once erected for the Noble heir’s bed, I’m a full-body portrait for him to look at: scars, gauntness, damage drawn by hardships in my beautiful life. Yes, beautiful – happy at moments.

He hasn’t exposed everything: he’s still wearing my ancient sweatshirt. But his feet unlike mine are bare, ice-cold – now touching my armpits.

“Help me get off one pair of these...” It’s not easy when there’re two pairs of woollen socks on top of each other.

We’re howling with laughter. Before he guesses my goal, he’s wearing socks, slippery on the floor, and we’re gliding in dance.

I just popped in to see if you'd posted anything lately, and found this, which I missed at Christmas. Such a lovely, poignant moment! And the final image is beautiful.

I’m so happy you’ve remembered me, popped in, and enjoyed sharing this moment with my Remus and Sirius! This is the only piece of fic I’ve written after completing the Remus novel, and I wonder if this dance in woollen socks will remain, indeed, the final image in the story. I wonder whether you still write in the HP fandom or not. In any case it’s lovely to see you. Thank you!
