A/N Just a little something I made out of boredom and an idea. 

Qwan had first heard it a little over three days ago; a high pitched sound, ringing in his ears that reverberated throughout the building. It had been keeping him up late at night that whole time, and he was still no closer to finding out what in the name of king Frond it was, though he had to admit, there seemed to be a tune going along with the screeches.

It was on that night that he finally followed the sound, curious and sleep deprived, to his pupils room. It was the loudest here, no doubt about it (his bleeding ears said so), but what wanted to know what it was and why, and he couldn’t rightly figure that out without coming in, so he did.

It was, in fact, No1, playing some sort of Mud Man instrument. What was it called again? Ah yes, a cello.

“What in Haven’s name are you doing boy?”

The attempted music stopped suddenly at the warlocks gravely tones and No1 stood hurriedly, placing the bow where he had been sitting. “Sorry!” He muttered with a slight cringe. “I-I didn’t know I woke you!” Woke him? It was impossible to wake someone who was already up last time he’d checked. “I’ll, err, stop now.” The imp slowly reached for the bow again, handing it back to his teacher with a gloomy look on his face. He seemed to have enjoyed the instrument in the few seconds he’d seen him, and there was potential there. He just needed to work on it a bit.

Qwan gently took the boy from the imps hand before plopping him back on the stool he’d been using.

Qwan smiled slightly, placing the bow in the boys hand once more, placing his hand over it. “You need to draw out more power, or you’ll never get the notes right.” He said smoothly, moving the bow across the strings and a harmonious, golden noise seemed to come from it. No1 stared at his cello, then his teacher, than back to the cello.

“Did I really just do that?” The little imp asked, eyes wide in wonder.

Qwan nodded. “Yes. Now let’s start working on that piece you were trying to play.”

  1. I loved this so much…. I play the cello! 😀 😀 😀 😀 No mistakes, either. Great job! 😉

  2. No mistakes. I loved it!!! 😀 😀 😀 Although, I like basses better, personally. 😉 Kidding.

  3. yeah, that was great, but don’t forget that cellos are, well, low pitched. 🙂

    () ()
    (0.0) don’t forget!

  4. 🙂

    Hm, I always wanted to learn the cello. Or something more unique. More special than the piano (Not saying the piano isn’t good or anything) … but of course, ended up with piano (while my eldest sister and brother ended up with guitar)..

    Anyway, great story, loved it!

  5. Hm. I might have been thinking of the violin when I wrote that one part, because it makes a high pitched noise when you don’t put in enough power. (Nothing known from personal experience BTW. I /wish/ I could play either one, but I’ll stick with just the piano.)

  6. Yeah, cellos go like ‘gwaaaah’ (like my impression?) if you don’t play them right. And cellos are my favorite instrument and the only thing I can play! 😀

    I have to say, though, I expected No1 to be teaching a troll to play the cello. xD


  7. Yoshi, you play the cello too? Awesome! 😀

  8. Cool so far!Update please! I play bass, but the cello rocks too!

  9. It’s a one-shot… (-_-‘) No update.

  10. 🙁 Darn.

    It’s okay. 😉

  11. Thas good! Really in character, too, and it seems to me that it’s fairly hard to get those two in character. I like it. Well done. Nothing for me to complain about.

  12. Cellos are one of my favorites, but sound nothing like a violen. Well, as “nothing” as a string instrument can 😉 This was very good though. I liked how family-ish it was 😉

    I honestly don’t know why you wanted me to read it, but this is really good.

  13. It’s very good. =)=)

  14. Now I have to write a fic where N*1 teaches a troll to play an instrument. xD


  15. Or where Butler teaches Beckett to throw a football….

  16. Artiholi180 the epic person of epicness! February 28th, 2010 at 11:15 pm 16

  17. Or… when Butler teaches ARTEMIS to throw a football.

    Ah, comedy… 😆

    You guys are getting random ideas. What has Butler teaching Artemis to throw a football got to do with CELLO’S!?!?!?!

  19. Absolutely nothing, (she says while glaring at the cello propped against the wall in the corner of her bedroom.) HA! That had to do with cellos! 🙂 Wha now, Hermione?
