Summary: Draco knew he was tiny and perfect, but that certainly didn’t excuse everyone from trying to marry him. And kidnapping him was just poor form. Thumbelina!Draco, AU, Harry/Draco, Slash, One-Shot
So… this… interesting story is my, um, take on a Draco!Thumbelina. Why? Well, I was watching Rifftrax’s (the brilliant men from Mystery Science Theater 3000) riff on Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny. It is, perhaps, the weirdest movie I’ve ever seen. Briefly, Santa Claus’ sleigh gets stuck on a beach in Florida. After an odd and pointless montage of random kids kidnapping farm animals (and a man in a gorilla suit) to try to free his sleigh, Santa decides that he will tell the story of Thumbelina instead while they wait for help to arrive. Or something. Because apparently Thumbelina is the perfect story to make sure you never lose hope... Anyway, the guys’ hilarious comments on the movie, for some reason, made me think of a snarky, bitchy Draco as Thumbelina. And no matter how dumb the idea is, it wouldn’t leave me alone. And I have a 5,000-word essay to write, so this had to go away. I’m now inflicting it on you.
Unlike my other stories, no amount of thought has gone into this, past what was necessary to write it and get it out of my head. This work will not be my finest. It also has had only the cursory glance over it for spelling or grammar errors. So forgive any errors you find.
Again, sorry for this.
(If you’re interested, Santa was saved. By giant Mr. Ice Cream Bunny (though what was so ‘Ice Cream’ about him remains a mystery). In a car. Ah, the 70s.)
