    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters used: Lily Evans, Severus Snape
    A/N: I wish I had my own Severus Snape...


    “Why would you want to be with me?” Severus asked, struggling to accept the fact that someone liked him, as he always did when around Lily.

    “You’re my friend, Sev. My best friend. Now let’s dance! It will be fun!”

    Severus shifted nervously, but he knew that he would give in. He would do anything for Lily. With a small sigh, he put his hand into Lily’s.

    She giggled. “You’re hands are freezing!”

    His face red from embarrassment, Severus found himself saying, “You’re hands are very warm.”

    Lily smiled, and his heart did a back-flip as he slowly smiled back.

    Title: Getting Some Sleep
    Characters used: Ron, Hermione
    A/N: This takes place at Shell Cottage, shortly after they arrived from Malfoy Manor.



    “I should let you sleep.”

    She grabbed his wrist. “Not yet.”

    Hope swelled in Ron’s chest. Good, because the last thing he wanted to do was leave. “Your hands are freezing.”

    “Can’t get warm.”

    At last, something he could fix. He fetched another blanket, added a warming charm and spread it over Hermione. Then, reclaiming his seat, he took her hand in both of his and began to rub gently.

    He lifted his eyes; she was watching him with so much tenderness in her face he thought she might cry.

    But instead, she only closed her eyes and fell asleep.

    Thank you.

    None of you wrote about Mundungus Fletcher, which is a shame as he was longing for a dance.

    Title: After The Battle
    Characters Used: Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, Fred Weasley (snr)
    A/N:

    At first, when the bodies were laid out in rows — Remus, Tonks, Fred, and the others — their limbs were warm and supple, their pale faces at peace, looking as if they were only sleeping; one had to remind oneself that the truth was different.

    But after the initial celebratory energy had died down and the bodies were prepared for transport to their homes, death could no longer be unrecognized. The skin was ashen gray; the hands were cold to the touch, not the cold of a winter day’s outdoor play, but the cold that signals that life has fled forever.

    Thank you.


    The SDC was Minerva McGonagall, so no bonus points today.

    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans and Severus Snape (mentioned)
    A/N: I backtracked a little to Christmas morning, so this would follow day eight's drabble. *edit: I looked up "parcel" after Weasley Mom's question, and I am going with the definition of an object being wrapped up, synonymous to package. Besides, Santa delivers parcels, right? So a room could be full of parcels...


    Lily rushed downstairs to see the sitting room full of parcels, and she eagerly leapt past them towards her parents’ room.

    “Mum! Dad! It’s Christmas! Christmas!”

    Without waiting for a response, Lily ran back to the sitting room. Her fingers itched to start grabbing her presents, but it was a family rule that everyone be in attendance for the opening of gifts.

    Impatient, Lily’s thoughts landed on Severus, and she couldn’t wait to see him and share the holiday spirit. She couldn’t leave, though, until the presents were unwrapped.

    “Mum! Dad! Tuney! Hurry up!” she yelled, picking up a package.

    Characters Used: Snape (just kidding, it's Ron, of course!)
    A/N:



    Was it romantic or was it stupid? Ron didn’t know (he never did), but he secured the small parcel to the owl’s leg anyway.

    “You know who,” he instructed. “At Hogwarts.”

    She’d be home for Christmas in only a few days, but it seemed that, for Ron, those last days were the most difficult. He’d just felt like doing something. It was only a Chocolate Frog, with a hastily scribbled note saying he missed her. He was no good with romantic gestures, and that book Harry had got him had long ago lost its usefulness, but hopefully, she’d like it.

    Title: Twenty Gifts
    Character Used: Harry Potter
    A/N: This drabble occurs during Harry's final Christmas at home (1990) before he goes to Hogwarts.

    “Harry, come here. I need you to bring the parcels in from the car.” Aunt Petunia’s sharp voice summoned Harry from his homework to fetch the products of her latest Christmas shopping trip.

    He sighed, put on his coat, and went out into the cold winter air. The back seat and the boot of the car were filled with plastic and paper shopping bags and some mail-order parcels Aunt Petunia had picked up at the post office. It took five trips carrying four bundles each time to fetch it all, and everything was for Dudley, he knew, nothing for him.

    Right, let's close this.

    Sadly no one used Luna. She's not that bothered as she's out looking for Nargles.
