Pansy Parkinson sighed and chuckled. At the same time.
To be honest, when she'd first gotten a part-time job at the Daily Prophet after graduating Hogwarts, she really hadn't expected to be doing – or seeing – anything even remotely like this. Well, maybe, but at least not while she was working. In fact, she hadn't even expected anything like this when they Prophet had made a rather rude article about the current relationship between Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. This was just... unprecedented, what she was going through at the moment.
She sighed again, this time without chuckles, and rubbed the bright of her nose slightly, a habit she'd picked up after reading through some of the ridiculous letters people would send the Daily Prophet. Draco Malfoy and Harry potter, for whatever mind-boggling reason that no one could be begin to fathom, had started dating. The Prophet had thus created a brief article mentioning the news in a quite derogatory way, the homophobes they were.
Okay, maybe not a brief article. But she had to justify her still working for them somehow, right? Ah, shit. Anyways, they'd had an entire article on the front page, topped off with a picture of the two snogging.
Now, she'd expected the angry letters they had gotten from the Weasleys, Remus Lupin, Hermione Granger, and even the rather sarcastic one from Harry Potter himself.
But Draco's response...
That one was just plain ridiculous.
She had expected him to be angry, and maybe slightly proud or smug about erasing all doubts that he was most definitely not going to follow in his father's footsteps. She had expected him to send a sarcastic, biting letter, with perhaps a hint of smugness, for him to quite possibly humiliate the Prophet with his witty tongue, but alas.
He seemed to have found a better use for the aforementioned witty tongue.
And had enjoyed sending the Daily Prophet pictures of exactly what he could do with that witty tongue of his.
She looked at the images on the table of Draco Malfoy and Harry potter, engaged in some rather explicit, and most definitely homosexual, acts, and wondered exactly how Draco had managed to take pictures without Potter's knowledge.
Oh well. At least her nosebleed was in control by now.
A/N: I was inspired to do this after reading Through the Grapevine by Pandora's Fallen.
I was wondering about what the Prophet's response to such pictures would be, and decided I needed to make something in the perspective of the person who looks through the Daily Prophet's mail.
It didn't really have to be Pansy's POV, but I was looking around for some not-that-well-known Slytherin name, and I simply gave up and used Pansy.
