Hello everyone. This little drabble was written for September Event: Back to School on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I used prompt 8. (object) Colored Pencils. I hope you all enjoy Color the Planets.
Neville finds himself watching as Luna muses over the colored pencils scattered over the table. She seems so deep in thought that it's almost a shame to interrupt her thought process.
"What are you doing?" he asks seeing her jump slightly.
She blinks her silvery blue grey eyes up at him as she gathers herself and he feels bad to have startled her. "I'm doing the Astronomy homework," she tells him going back to her musing before picking out a vivid shade of red for Mars.
"Mars is a little lighter colored than that," he states trying to be helpful.
"The homework didn't say to color the planets in how other people claim they should look," she states in a dreamlike tone. "It says to color them how you think they look. Or at least that's how I took it to mean."
He wonders, not for the first time too, if he would have gotten a better grade for that assignment if he'd have thought outside the box like that too. He watches as Luna colors Mars in and then goes back to musing over the colored pencils again.
I hope you all enjoyed Color the Planets. I enjoy writing for Luna she's such an easy character to channel. I also think she kind of pairs well with Neville too and I can totally see a conversation like this happening between the two of them.
