    House: Gryffinstars
    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans, Severus Snape (mentioned); Petunia is used, as well, but she isn't on the list
    A/N: Hey Jess, what does a star say?


    Lily finished placing the last silver dot on the stars of the cake, and she stood back to admire her handiwork. Full of excitement, she carefully lifted the cake off the counter and placed it in the refrigerator.

    When she closed the door, she felt an odd sensation, and she whipped around to see the back of Petunia’s head moving out of sight. She sighed. It had been like this ever since she had come home for the holidays. Petunia wasn’t ready to forgive Severus and her for- well, for being freaks. Lily quietly hung her head at the thought.

    House: Gryffindors, party!!!!!
    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters used: Lily Evans, Severus Snape (mentioned); Petunia, once again, but she is no where near the list of characters.
    A/N: This is fun, writing 100 words at a time!


    Lily left the kitchen, her thoughts now on the upcoming Christmas party that her parents wanted to have. She wondered if she should invite Severus, but she had a sinking feeling that doing so would cause a lot of problems, not only for Severus, but for Petunia as well. Frustrated, she tried to think of way to make Severus’ Christmas even more special, more so than receiving horned slugs as a gift, for which he had been very grateful for. She smiled at the memory of his pale blush and stammering thanks. She would do anything to see that again.

    Title: Piecrust Cookies
    Characters Used: Percy Weasley, Molly Weasley (snr), Louis Weasley
    A/N:

    Little Molly squirmed on the sofa while the adults talked endlessly about boring matters she didn’t understand. Her father Percy frowned at her restlessness, but her grandmother know that little Molly needed something to do suitable for a five-year-old.

    “I’m going to make a pie for dinner. Do you want to make piecrust cookies with the leftover dough, Mollykins? Then when Louis’ family arrives, you and he can have a tea party with cambric tea.”

    Little Molly bounced up and down on the sofa in gleeful anticipation, nodding vigorously and smiling broadly, showing all her neat little baby teeth. “Yes!”

    Thank you for entering.

    Sadly my Christmas cake didn't inspire anyone to think of the luscious Lucius Malfoy who was Day Five's SDC

    Ah Day six is done.

    And I felt so sure we'd have a winner in the SDC, but alas (earwax) my fellow Oliver Wood devotee hasn't made it to the party.


    Yes, twas he.

    Name: Nagini Riddle
    House: 7 lions roaring
    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters used: Lily Evans; Petunia sneaked in again
    A/N: Sadly, no Severus in this part of the story...


    “Seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying, five golden rings!” Lily twirled around in her room, the skirt on her new Christmas dress billowing around her.

    “Will you cut it out?” a snippy voice sounded from the hallway.

    “If it makes you feel better, Tuney,” Lily sighed. Now Petunia wasn’t even looking at her when she made those hurtful comments. The joy in Lily’s heart evaporated at the thought. How in the world was she going to salvage this holiday?

    But the emptier she felt at how her relationship was with Petunia, the more she wondered if it was worth it…

    Thank you, Natalie for posting this.

    I shall close as I'm back, and announce that the SDC for day Seven was in fact


    Severus Snape.


    NAGINIIIIIIIII Why, oh why did you miss him out today?

    I swear this is cursed. Jess misses Oliver yesterday, and Kaylee misses Sevvy today - sigh.

    Thank you.

    Day Eight will be up a little later today.
