FIC: "The Chelmsford List" for eeyore9990
Title: The Chelmsford List
Pairing: Stan Shunpike/Mundungus Fletcher
Word Count: 5860
Warnings/Content Information:Just dodgy wizards with dodgy accents and even dodgier grammar.
Summary: Baffling Prison Escape + Wizards = Not Really All That Baffling. That's why this isn't an escape story. But it does involve wizards and prisons.
Author's Notes: Short version: A criminal character called Fletcher? I'm on to you, JKR.
Loosely inspired by Porridge, in particular (see Rule Five) the above classic episode from 1974, A Night In. If you're not familiar with it, beware of authentic 70's British humour if following the link. You don't need to watch or know the series at all to read the story, I just needed to credit it for the inspiration. The depiction of prison life owes a lot more to it than to modern reality too, as I think it's a better fit with the HP world. Finally, Porridge was at least once filmed on location at Chelmsford Prison, and yes, I had to share that even though this is getting very long indeed :D
Thank you to my lovely beta S, for helping me go over (and over!) the dialogue until we were both happy with it. <3
eeyore9990, you said 'anything', and I'm afraid I took you at your word. Um. Sorry? I hope you find something to your taste in it, but if not I can try something else!
