    House: Gryffindor
    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans and a mention of Severus Snape
    A/N: With that, I am finished! Now I just need to connect all these drabbles and write an ending...


    Lily pulled out her stockings and folded them into her trunk. She couldnít believe the holidays were over, and that she would be back at Hogwarts tomorrow.

    She reflected back on the previous weeks, and realized, with a pain of guilt, that she hadnít patched things up with her sister. And while she may have helped Severus have a good holiday, she felt pretty rotten at having neglected that one task she had set herself to.

    With a sigh, she noticed that she had been folding every pair of stockings that she owned. She sat down and hung her head.

    Name: Oregonian
    House: Slytherin
    Character Used: Cedric Diggory
    A/N: We can't end this drabble challenge without mentioning Cedric.

    Every year most Hogwarts students went home for Christmas, and they hung their stockings there on December 24 to be filled by Father Christmas. But in 1994 most of the older students remained at school for the Yule Ball. In the Hufflepuff common room, the older Hufflepuffs hung their stockings all along the walls, and in the days leading up to Christmas they surreptitiously tucked little gifts into their friends' stockings.

    Cedric Diggory's stocking, in particular, was the recipient of many little items and tiny packages. They spilled out the top and onto the floor below, to Cedric's acute embarrassment.

    Thank you.

    SDC was DUMBLEDORE- again because I like him!

    Am on phone for various boring reasons but will work out points in next two days.

    POINTS POINTS POINTS POINTS




    Nagini – 48+ 10 (bonus for every day completed) +2 =60
    Oregonian 46 +2 +2 = 50
    Weasley Mom 2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2 =24
    Theo Pale Ye 2 +2+2+2+2 =10
    minna -2+2 =4
    ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor 2+2+2+2+2 =10
    silverlining95 -2+2 =4
    tc05 2 = 2
    Draco7052 -2+2+2=6

    (points in red indicate bonus. Please let me know if I've missed anything, although all threads are soon to be shifted to Hermione's Corner. )

    Thank you, Kaylee, for pointing out my mathmatical error!


    Which means ....

    Gryffindor - 62
    Hufflepuff – 28
    Ravenclaw – 10
    Slytherin - 70


    Thanks, especially, to Kaylee and Vicki for sticking with each prompt because it is an incredibly busy time of year.

    Also, although I'm not going to award any extra points (much as I'm longing to because she's my housemate) I want to mention here that I literally laughed out loud along with my fellow barmaid, hestiajones, at Gurdyroot Weasley. That is now canon and I won't have it any other way. Lori, we doff our caps to you!
