The Colour of Magic (G; Luna/Draco; 100 words): Written for P., who prompted me with Luna/Draco: octarine, generous, and dew.

Luna has a dress that blooms; she's only recently begun wearing it, but already, it's Draco's favourite item in her wardrobe. When first she pulls it on, it's a plain, pale lawn green, but warmed by her body, quivering stalks shoot from its hem. Dew shines upon them as they unfurl delicate leaves and blossoms burst forth in a riot of vivid colours, one colour so bright that Draco cannot fully perceive it. Luna calls this colour "octarine" and describes it as being akin to greenish-purple, but Draco can only make out the generous, petal-shaped nothingnesses where it should be.

Such great description, esp. for such a little fic--sounds like the perfect dress for Luna, too! I really love the Discworld series, so the allusion there made it even better. :)

Why, thank you! *dances* I'm glad you're pleased. :D
