silly: in defense of parvati patil (in memory of lavender brown)
The students of Dumbledore’s Army had many badges. A gold coin that called them first to lessons and then to war. Scar tissue that ran across the back of many of their hands. I must not tell lies.

Another: the sound of clacking footsteps on stone sent each and every one of them scattering, even years after. The only people bold enough to walk loudly were not safe.

Parvati went out on the anniversary of not the battle but the day she left Gryffindor Tower for the DA and the Room of Requirement. She bought a pair of heels, their red as loud as the sound they made on hard floors.

Dennis Creevey sent her Muggle sneakers for Christmas and she wore those when she needed to be stealthy (scuffed purple and white peeking out from beneath her robes) but she wore the heels on office days, interrogations, on nights out, because she wanted to be unafraid, because she wanted to be the scariest thing in the room.

i am young, but i have aged
Let us say you are nine years old, and you are a slave. You are property, and have known this all your life, and even if you don't /like/ it, it remains fact. Your master is not cruel, not really, even if he is grouchy, but he still holds the power of life and death over you, still has say as to where you go and what you do. You are an object, with a pricetag, and this is the natural way of things for you.

“He considered Riva’s age. She’d been in her teens at the time of the Barrayaran conquest of Komarr, in her twenties at the time of the Revolt. She’d survived, she’d endured, she’d cooperated; her years under Imperial rule had been good, including an obviously successful live of the mind, and a single marriage. She’d compared children with Vorthys, and spoken of an eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. No Komarran terrorist, she.”

What matters, on Komarr.
