09:26 am - Not actually what I intended for my first post....
So I was going to talk about fashion or film or Master Danger snapping at me yesterday, but instead, have this this image of a red door. (We know how I've been thinking of red doors!)

And have this 100 words to accompany the image:


The black knob is cool under her hand, and the door gives way easily. It’s as if it wants to open, as if it’s meant.

But she’s never been in this empty house before, on this unfamiliar coast.

Flattening her palm against the red of the door, feeling its smoothness, she gazes at a white path stretching into mist. The invitation and the danger mingle like smoke and fog.

In her hand, a folded paper, sharp edges, black ink. Come and see. Your Peter.

Wendy smells the sea, and steps out, and smiles. She has magic he hasn’t dreamed of.



May the open door take you to a good place today! :)

I love this drabble, I really do. It matches the image perfectly.

Anyway, you have inspired me to post at least once a week during the month of April. (Baby steps, baby steps.) It'll mean giving my LJ a good dusting, as most of my posts this past year have been short private ones with content along the lines of I have nothing to say I'm too lazy to post but I don't want to get kicked out of various communities for having an inactive account. It'll be a stretch pushing myself to produce actual content!

Happy Tuesday :-)

"The invitation and the danger mingle like smoke and fog." is a gorgeous line.
