The timepiece  
 

Bellatrix has a pocketwatch, a man's pocketwatch that looks as if it's some family heirloom.

The clasp is broken, but she suspects that it's been broken for much longer than she's been alive. When something has been a certain way for so long the need to fix it becomes silly. Besides, it's not the clasp that she finds so captivating anyway. There is no face on this pocketwatch, only dials are visible when it's opened up. It is not an heirloom. Bellatrix stole it.

The night it came into her possession, the dials clicked and turned until a roman numeral one burned red hot through the tiny golden frame.

She couldn't figure out why, at first. The man who clutched it had been laying in a pool of blood, dead for hours by her count. She picked it up and slipped it in her pocket. The number one glowed brightly under her cloak, a mystery.

That was almost a year ago.

The number now reads 19. She remembers them each with a smile. Nine grown men. Two children. Eight women.

A watch designed to remind the user that someone was keeping score. She kept it around because it did just that.

Ooh pretty. Is it weird that I find that pretty? XD I guess Bellatrix is just so poetic with stuff, y'know?

But yeah that's really good! And kinda creepy. :)

Thank you. I love Bellatrix as a character. She's always one step ahead of the game, she never says what she thinks, she soooo cold and calculating, there's a feeling of sexual tension when she does ANYTHING, and she's creative with her punishments.

She is very poetic in a weird twisted way though.

Same. I totally love her, but she must be hard to play. And yeah, she is so very sexual. lol.

I love Helena Bonham Carter as her, one of the few things the films got right
Bellatrix Black: pants. off. now.bellatrix_bites on July 20th, 2008 07:38 am (UTC)
It was at first, but it's like second nature almost now, plus she forces me to be creative because she's always out to get someone's head in some new twisted way.

I have a thing about anyone playing her. I don't like it. I can't just let them do it, I'm always thinking "oh god, she'd never do that!". So yeah, Helena's okay, but she's not my Bella.

Lol That's good. Hestia is just so second nature to me and I am nothing like her.

Well I have separated out all the old!Bella things from young!Bella things which mean there are two different people for me really

Really, really lovely. The whole concept of Bellatrix's character totally sends me over the edge. She's so twisted. Like the Joker from Batman.

Awesome job.

Thank you! :D

It kinda just comes to me. Like, I'm so into her character that it's very natural. I guess that's what you get when you've played a character for a whole year.
