Kiss of Life (PG-13; Bill/Fleur; 150 words)

This one's for me because I'm really tired of seeing Fleur portrayed as a delicate flower (or as a shrew who drives Bill away).

Kiss of Life (PG-13; Bill/Fleur; 150 words)

Curses flew at Bill as he ducked towards the ground into a roll and came up casting a defensive hex that pushed back his pursuers, leaving only one Death Eater on his feet before him. Bill's next spell caught him square in the chest as a shriek rent the air above him. He was on the trembling ground again before he realised he'd been knocked down, and scrambling to retrieve his wand, he saw what had done it: a magnificent white bird with terrible talons ripping open the chest of the foe he'd missed.

There were giants coming, and Bill should have been trying to orient himself with regard to their progress, but he found himself too turned on to move . . . until his avian protector transformed.

"Stupeed!" Fleur shouted, blood flying from her lips as she strode forward and smacked him with a begored hand. "You could 'ave been ki—"

I agree that Veelas are mostly depicted as having the ability to ensnare men while ignoring their vicious avian characteristics. I'd be interested in reading more stories along the lines you've introduced in this story. Thank you for the drabble.

You're welcome, and thank you for your response. Fleur's one of those characters that I'd love to write more about. :D

Thanks! I may have Sue-d her up a bit, but Veela's aren't all about the sex, darn it!

about Fleur
I thought Fleur wasn't a full fledged Veela, just a quarter-Veela on her grandma (or was it greatgrandm-side)

however the idea of Fleur being a bird animagus to honor her veela heritage is a very cool idea.

Re: about Fleur
Her grandmother was the full Veela in Fleur's family.

It seemed right to me that Fleur would end an avian Animagus because of her heritage, too. :D
