    Name: Nagini
    House: Lions, and tigers, and... lions. Oh my!
    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans (no surprise), James Potter snr (breaking tradition!), and an allusion to Severus Snape
    A/N: Several years later, Lily finds that she is still thinking of Severus...


    Lily gazed out at the sky, tracing patterns of the stars with her eyes. With a heavy sigh, she moved away from the window and proceeded to place the glowing doe ornament on her tree.

    “That’s nice,” a voice sounded from behind, and Lily found herself embraced by her husband. “It’s just like your patronus.”

    “Yeah,” Lily said softly, fingering the decoration. In an effort to erase her thoughts of him, Lily picked up the tree topper.

    “Ready to put the star up, dear?” she asked.

    And as James placed it, Lily couldn’t help but stare at the silver doe.

    Name: Oregonian
    House:Slytherin
    Characters Used: Lavender Brown, Padma Patil
    A/N: I realize that Parvati, not Padma, was a Gryffindor, but Padma was in the character list, so I assumed that Parvati, being too busy, recruited her more artistic sister to help Lavender with the cards.

    Padma and Lavender bent over the table, deeply occupied in artistry. Lavender was making Christmas cards for the Gryffindor classmates in her year; Padma was helping with graphic design.

    She drew a prototype card with borders of holly, ivy, pine, stars, and red birds, and a central picture of four dogs looking up at a deep blue night sky with a shining star. A message in artistic script wished the recipient a blessed yuletide season.

    "It's beautiful. Thank you so much, Padma. You're so talented."

    Using the Gemini charm, Lavender reproduced ten more cards, then signed them in gold ink.

    Thank you.

    The SDC was Bellatrix ... hence the allusion to her name in the prompt

    Name: Oregonian
    House: Slytherin
    Characters Used: Susan Bones, Amelia Bones
    A/N: This drabble is set when Susan was a little girl.

    Buster was still just a puppy, and during the holiday bustle all sorts of things had been carelessly left in places where he could get at them. He loved to chew, and already he had chewed up one of Susan's party shoes and carried it out through the doggie door into the back garden.

    Now Susan came crying to her aunt, holding the pieces of her disarticulated doll and sobbing that Buster had done it.

    "Good heavens, poppet, it looks like it's splinched. Here, let me repair it," her aunt said sympathetically.

    "What do you mean, Aunt Amelia? What's 'splinched'?"

    Title: Maybe (cont)
    Characters Used: Lily Evans, Severus Snape
    A/N: I realize there isn't any Apparating in Hogwarts, so let's assume that Avery tried to Apparate somewhere he could try, like Hogsmeade, or maybe even the Forbidden Forest! JK. This drabble would come before the fairy lights drabble... *only two more days left!!!*


    Severus was laughing rather hard when Lily showed up at his table to eat lunch. The minute he saw her, he quieted and tried really hard to blend in with the walls behind him. His Slytherin friends had been teasing him about the redhead he was hanging out with, and he did not wish to have more mean jokes thrown at him.

    “What is so funny?” Lily asked.

    “Oh, nothing really,” Severus replied. “Just that Avery tried to show off and Apparate and he ended up Splinching.”

    Lily gave him a blank, uncomprehending look. “Apparate? Splinch?”

    “Never mind,” Severus said.

    Name: WeasleyMom
    House: Hufflepuff
    Characters Used: Ron, Hermione
    A/N: Am I too late for this??


    Ron woke in a haze, trying to speak over the burning pain in his arm. Then she was there, hovering above him looking extremely worried.

    “I must be in bad shape.”

    She burst into tears.

    Her hands were on his good arm and his chest, making it hard for him to concentrate on what she was saying… something about blood loss and Dittany and it all being her fault.

    “That does it then,” he said.

    She sniffed. “What?”

    “I’ll never pass that Apparition test now.” He’d hoped to cheer her, but her brief smile quickly gave way to more tears

    Sorry I'm so late at closing.

    Yes, Lori, you're late but it will count as I didn't close on time.

    And Yay, the SDC was Susan Bones.


    Bonus points to Oregonian.
