Author's notes: I saw this prompt and just knew that it was one of the prompts that I wanted to try to write. Props to rickey_a for having come up it - it was very interesting to ponder on it and creating a story out of it. But to be perfectly honest, the writing didn’t happen smoothly… my own personal demons showed up somewhere along the way and sometimes they get carried over to the writing, which I then have to combat so the story doesn’t go astray. I hope the result is not disappointing. Lastly, thank you very much to the moderators of HD Inspired for being so helpful and understanding. This is a great community and I’m proud to be a part of it.
Beta(s): blamebrampton (thanks for beta-reading, Brit-picking and supplying me with infinite wisdom; it’s been a great learning experience working on this fic with her) and brighterlater (thanks for beta-reading, spell-checking and just being there for me). Much love to both of them!

Artist: massicot
Title: Trees of One's Own Choosing (or) How Sirius Black Scared Some Sense Into Draco Malfoy
Pairing(s): H/D, RL/SB, Pansy+Draco friendship
Rating: PG
Summary: from bonfoi's prompt: "Tumbling through the Vanishing Cabinet, Draco Malfoy finds himself in No. 12 Grimmauld Place and at the not-so-tender mercies of Sirius Black. Rushing to his rescue is the unlikely team of Harry Potter and Pansy Parkinson! Raised eyebrows, screaming portraits, and Black secrets make an adventure that opens Draco's eyes to the possibility of a different life." minus the screaming, and plus a werewolf, that's this in a nutshell.
Warnings: Inscrutably silent. The piece is composed almost entirely of pantomime, with only the occasional scribbled sound effect to break the monotony, because i fail at words.

Artist's notes: This is an animatic- a moving storyboard; it is not meant to be a smooth animation, but rather a half-step between a comic and a film. Animatics are used as an initial guide in the animation process, to get a basic sense of pacing and of what-goes-where-when before the actual animating begins. ...So that's why it looks like that.
