Here's the companion piece to my [livejournal.com profile] dramionelove promptfest piece, The Second-best Single. In point of fact, I wrote this one first, but it didn't conform with one of the unbreakable rules of the fest--it wasn't written from either Draco's or Hermione's POV. Still, I had a lot of fun with it, so I'm going to share. Tell me what you think.

Title: The Singles Plan

Author/Artist: stgulik

Fic Word Count: ~1050

Rating: K (G)

Warnings (if any): None

Summary: (Son of) Single Father Seeks (Mostly) Kind Witch

Author's Notes: This is the companion piece to the “Second-best Single,” which was submitted to the 2016 Dramionelove Promptfest. All my love, always, to [livejournal.com profile] teddyradiator for her encouragement, and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rzzmg for hosting [livejournal.com profile] dramionelove on Livejournal.

Well, promptfest reveals have finally posted at [livejournal.com profile] dramionelove. There was some terrific work--art and fics. With some of them, it was hard to believe writers could pack so much of a wallop into the 1000-word max; I was blown away. Me? I was just happy to be there!

Here's the little fic I wrote for the fest. There's also a companion piece, which I will post next. Here we go!

Title: Second-best Single
Author/Artist: stgulik
Prompt #: #51 “Single father seeks kind witch”
Fic Word Count: 1000-ish
Rating: K
Warnings (if any): Fluff
Summary: Draco will find the witch of his dreams, even at the cost of his dignity.
Author's Notes: Hugs from afar to my lovely [livejournal.com profile] teddyradiator for all her help and encouragement, and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rzzmg for hosting the [livejournal.com profile] dramionelove minifest.

[livejournal.com profile] dramionelove promptfest has begun posting! And today's two entries are real corkers. Be sure and check it out. Each entry has a limit of 1,000 words, so you have plenty of time to dive right in.

Turned in my [livejournal.com profile] dramionelove piece over the weekend. And the companion piece is sitting in Google Docs, patiently waiting for the fest to be over so I can share that one, too. [livejournal.com profile] rzzmg is trying to tempt me with another prompt before the deadline, and I'll definitely pick one, but I'm also turning my attention to the [livejournal.com profile] sshg_promptfest with its May 31 deadline.

Work is really going well--a statement I never thought I would make again. Yesterday, my paper was printed and bound and the first copy delivered to my office door. What a marvelous feeling! And it would never have happened with my old boss. In the past, he outright killed one of my projects and smothered another one with weekly "updates" that turned into patronizing lectures on microeconomics. The paper was delayed so long, the client withdrew their request for the study. I'm not saying I was blameless in this mess. I'm not the world's best analyst. But he's the one who promised the deliverable and then frittered away a year playing academic lecturer to a captive audience instead of supporting me as I tried to move the project along. Not that I'm bitter.

But he's elsewhere now, and the bottleneck is unstoppered, and our papers are actually allowed to be finished again. And suddenly, I actually have a full week's worth of work these days! I've been busy and happy about it. Yesterday I even forgot to feed my Neko Atsume kitties; by the time I remembered them, they had wandered off to [livejournal.com profile] toblass's yard.

Over the weekend, I got inspired and wrote my little 1k-word [livejournal.com profile] dramionelove promptfest piece in one sitting. But when I went to check the submission terms again, it seems I forgot an important point: the story must be written from either Draco's or Hermione's POV. My story is written in the POV of a third character. Rookie move! Hell's bells! HOW many fests have I written for?

Anyway, I'm still really excited about the thing I wrote. I'll probably do the same story line for the fest, but tell it from Draco's perspective. When the fest is over, I can put up both stories as companion pieces.
