Drabble: Bonfire (Lorcan/Rose, PG)  
Title: Bonfire
Author: gracerene
Pairing: Lorcan/Rose
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Challenge: Prompt 104: Bonfire Night for hp_nextgen100
Author's Note: Unbeta'd. I really struggled with this one for some reason. :/

Rose had always hated bonfire night.

She hated the pungent smell of smoke that clung to her clothing like a dungbomb. She hated the boom of her uncle's Wildfire Whizz-Bangs that echoed in her ears long after they'd gone off. She hated the the frigid cold of the November night that sunk into her bones, better only than the fever heat of the roaring fire that seemed as if it would blister her skin.

Every year she dreaded this day. But this year was different.

Across the bonfire, Lorcan flashed her a brilliant smile. Rose's heart pounded.

She smiled back.

It certainly doesn't read as if you struggled with it. I like it! First all the reasons why Rose hates Bonfire Day, and then the one that outweighs them all. It's very sensual, that's something I always love in a fic. I wish this was WhatsApp so I could give you the thumps-up-emoji! :-)

That was lovely, I really liked all the reasons why she doesn't like Bonfire Night, and I sympathise, and I love that that smile across the fire is worth it. <3
