    Name: Nagini
    House: The one that is red and gold with some roaring cat as its mascot...
    Title: Maybe (cont) *yes, these drabbles are all out of order.
    Characters Used: Severus Snape- and yes, Lily Evans made it in, too!
    A/N: That moment when you get so wrapped up in Severus' emotions that you completely forget what the prompt was in the first place... Luckily, the icicles made it in.


    Severus slipped out the front door as quietly as he could, aware that his parents were still sleeping. He shivered as the cold began to seep through his thin coat and smock, and he wondered if his worn-out shoes would be able to take the walk through the slushy snow. After a moment’s thought, he decided he didn’t care. If he caught pneumonia, at least he got to see Lily.

    He began to trudge through the snow, his eyes cast downward, not even noticing all the Christmas decorations and lights and icicles. That was how he preferred it: being isolated.

    Title: Icicles
    Character Used: Albus Dumbledore
    A/N:

    In January an arctic air mass settled over Scotland. The temperature was well below freezing for two weeks without relief, and the ground slowly froze ever deeper; the snow layer was too thin to act as insulation.

    When the freeze finally broke and warm, moist air came in aloft, it was as Albus Dumbledore had feared: the rain froze instantly upon touching the super-cooled surfaces, the ground was a sheet of ice, footing was treacherous, all the plant material was encased in thick ice, branches snapped, and six-foot icicles hung from the castle’s upper edges, gleaming in the thin sunlight.

    Name: NAGINI!!!!!
    House: I wish lions could hiss like snakes...
    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans and Severus Snape (mentioned)
    A/N: Unlucky? Now why would that be?


    Lily grabbed a couple of mince pies from the tray before she snuck out the door to meet Severus. The rest of the people paid her no attention, absorbed as they were in the party, talking about boring adult things.

    Once outside, she shivered delightfully, reveling in the beauty of the snow. She sat down on a nearby log and began to munch upon her pie, watching the road for any sign of Severus.

    As she waited, she couldn’t help but smile. Despite the cold shoulder Petunia was giving her, this Christmas was turning out the most magical of all.

    Title: Percy's Christmas Dinner
    Character Used: Percy Weasley
    A/N:

    Percy walked out from the Ministry into the cold air of the London streets. The sun had already set, and the gray skies were getting darker. By this time, Christmas Eve, pedestrians were few; everyone else had someplace to go, someone to be with. Percy was alone by choice; it was no longer safe to trust anyone, not safe to accept a dinner invitation from someone who might be denounced the next day. Christmas dinner for Percy would be a solitary, ordinary meal at his flat, with only one luxury, a mince pie he had bought yesterday at a bakeshop.

    Thank you

    Day 13's SDC was my beautiful, snarky Scorpius Malfoy

    Sadly no one else finds him beautiful or snarky enough to write.

    New prompt up soon!

    House:Gryffindor
    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Character used: Lily Evans and Severus Snape
    A/N: I must confess that Hypatia inspired this drabble; in her story When Darkness Meets Light, Severus takes an ornament with a glowing doe inside it and shrinks it down to locket size as a present for Lily to wear. You'll see I used a similar concept, but no locket.


    “I got you something,” mumbled Severus, his face flushing red. Lily, who had been drawing in the snow with a stick, looked up at his words, unable to hide her surprise.

    “A present for me?” she asked.

    Severus nodded, and he handed her a small box that had been crudely put together. She carefully opened it, and with a gasp, she pulled out a beautiful ornament that held a glowing doe inside.

    “Oh, Sev!” she whispered in awe.

    Pleased by her reaction, he said, “It’s for your Christmas tree, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be.”

    “I’ll treasure it always.”
