    Characters Used: Lily Evans
    A/N: This particular drabble would be taking place before the first drabble of this challenge... I am going to have an interesting time putting these together.


    She caught herself staring at the mistletoe sprigs hovering in the window of her dorm and at the ivy leaves framing the sill. Christmas. Soon, she would be headed home to spend the holidays with her parents and sister. She truly hoped that her sister would be able to look past the events of the summer and just come back to the trust and friendship they once shared. ‘Tis the season, after all! But something inside her didn't sit right. The hate and spite that had dwelled in her sister’s eyes continued to plague her mind and her mournful heart.

    Characters Used: Ron, Hermione (Rose???)
    A/N:





    “Why don’t you like Ivy?” Hermione complained.

    Ron wiped the sweat from his wife’s hairline, trying not to worry. The thought of Hermione suffering a hard labor rattled his nerves. “Makes me think of spooky vines and spiders.”

    “Oh, honestly.”

    “Not. Ivy.”

    “Fine. But I like the idea of naming her for something alive…”

    He grinned, fingering her hair. “Then it’s settled. We’ll call her Gurdyroot.”

    It should have won him a laugh, but instead, her face twisted with another contraction.

    “They’re coming faster.”

    She nodded with that lovely, nervous smile of hers. “I think it’s time for the healer.”

    Title: Night Visitors
    Characters Used: Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom
    A/N:

    “Be very quiet,” Luna warned softly, as she and Neville tiptoed out the main doors and skirted along the castle walls. Overhead a brilliant moon bathed the lawn in silvery light, throwing black shadows beside the buttresses of the walls.

    “What’re we looking for?” Neville whispered.

    “You’ll see.” Luna stopped and extended an arm to prevent Neville’s passing her. “Look there.”

    Neville stared, and as his eyes adapted to the darkness he perceived small figures near the wall and heard a rustling.

    “It’s roe deer,” Luna whispered. “A mother and two fawns.”

    “What’re they doing?” Neville breathed.

    “Eating the ivy.”

    Title: Against the Wind
    Characters Used: Oliver Wood, Alicia Spinnet
    A/N: So, what DOES the fox say? (I blame Glee)

    Not daring to look at Alicia again for the rest of the meal after the juice incident, Oliver concentrated on his plate and fled the Great Hall as quickly as he could without question.

    Soon, he found himself outside, leaning up against cold stone of the castle walls. The biting winter wind snaked through his clothes, branching out through his veins like the very ivy he was crushing with his back.

    He’d ruined it. In ten seconds, he was certain she would never look at him the same again.

    With a grunt, he kicked a particularly guilty-looking drift of snow.

    Characters Used: Harry and Hermione
    A/N: Godric's Hollow, Christmas Eve 1997


    It’s Christmas Eve. His hand feels cold against the window while the excitement of tomorrow thrums through his stomach like a train.

    He watches two people walk past his house down the lane, holding hands. They stop outside the scary house no one else can see--the crumbling ruins with ivy eating its way in and out of the walls and windows.

    Mum always tells him not to be silly, that it’s just an empty field, but he’s always been able to see it. Sometimes, he sees odd people looking at the scary house too.

    Sometimes, he feels odd too.

    Title: A Special Occasion
    Character Used: Nymphadora Tonks
    A/N:

    "I need a cake for my daughter's wedding," Andromeda said to the woman behind the counter of the little bakery.

    "When will the wedding be?" the woman asked brightly.

    "Tomorrow," Andromeda answered. The woman's face fell.

    "This is such short notice. I'm afraid we couldn't have it made by then. Our schedule is very tight during the summer, you see."

    "Oh, that's okay, don't worry," Andromeda reassured her. "The wedding will be quite small. I can use one of these cakes in the display case."

    The case held cakes iced in various colors, but one was all white, with stars.

    A/N:There was much more fun before I ran out of word count. Nudity may have been involved.

    Oliver couldn’t figure out why he, someone so cool under pressure on the pitch, couldn’t even properly talk to a girl. Not to mention the fiasco at the feast.

    “There you are!” Alicia called, waving to him from the front doors and jerking him out of his reverie. “Thanks for the shower.”

    Blushing furiously, Oliver stammered an apology, which Alicia waved off with a chuckle.

    “Think nothing of it.” She grinned and held out a little Christmas tree-shaped cake. “Brought this for you. I know you like sweets, and you didn’t have any dessert.”

    Something warm flowered in Oliver’s belly.
