    PROMPT 2!

    Welcome to The Three Broomsticks Easter 100 word Challenge!

    It’s Easter next week, and you know what that means! Not only will Madam Russia be stuffing herself with chocolate for a good few days, but your barmaids have devised a very special Easter 100 word challenge for you.

    I, Madam Russia, will be your resident Easter bunny and every 2 days I will be dropping drabble prompts in the form of different kinds of Easter eggs.

    Each kind of egg will be accompanied by a SHORTexplanation which you should use as your prompt to write a drabble of between 90 and 100 words. (no more than 100)

    2 participation points will be awarded to each author who submits a drabble. You may enter as many drabbles as you like for each prompt, but participation points will only be awarded once per egg type. A winner will be chosen from each prompt and will receive a further 5 points, and if you manage to complete all 9 prompts, you will receive another 5 points for your house.

    There will be 9 prompts in total, prompt one is as follows and you have until 10pm BST on 20th April to complete it.

    PROMPT 2:
    Egg Type: Hen Egg
    Drabble prompt:Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature. [CS Lewis]
    You may use any characters/eras, canon or non-canon. Write whatever you feel like!

    It is not necessary to include the egg, or an egg of any kind. Nor is it necessary to reference Easter, you can write whatever you feel like, as long as it centres around the phrase underneath the egg type. (Thanks Arianna for the question!)

    Even in the darkness, he could see the moonlight reflecting over the snow and a nearby icy pool. It seemed an unlikely spot for a reunion, especially one that might be characterized by a lot of begging and yelling, but this is where the light led him after he’d heard Hermione’s voice.

    He couldn't leave now—they had to be here.

    Later, when a crunch of twigs turned out to be Harry, Ron thought his heart would break with relief. He got up and followed, keeping his fingers around the metal cylinder that had somehow become a magical miracle.

    A/N: Why do I try to keep a consistency with my drabbles? Why!

    His eyes catch the gentle sway of her hips, the silky pale strip of bare flesh above her jeans as she slides onto one of the stools. All he can think of is how the jut of her pelvic bones would fit perfectly against his palms.

    Suddenly, his world narrows to her lip caught between her teeth and the way she tosses her hair behind her shoulder. He convinces himself that she does not belong to nature, for the way she has so easily ensnared his heart would be considered a miracle – and there are no miracles in nature.

    A/N: Dang you, Russia for writing such a lovely prompt... and for making non-canon characters allowable, since Feng demanded this response.

    Magic broke all the laws of nature that she knew. Not that she knew many of these laws, she had been a gymnast, not a scholar. But she knew, that she could not fly. She could approach flight, imagine that she was a bird, at least for a moment at the height of her release from the bar while she twisted and turned... but the ground always ruined her fantasy, and her feet planted themselves on the ground, knees straight, chest up, arms straight, wide smile.

    But with magic, she really could fly and it was no longer a miracle.

    A/N: Edit: Haha, bookworm and I had the same idea. I think hers is the prequel to mine :-D

    Her parents had called it a miracle. They had cried and laughed and lifted her little sister in the air. She had cried and screamed and slammed the door. It was unnatural. It was wrong. The next morning she had found a small token on her bedside table. She had told Lily she burned it.

    Yet even today, hidden in a locked drawer, she kept the flower. It never dried, never withered. It had stayed that way for almost twenty years, long after her sister had gone.

    It was wrong, she had insisted, and she couldn’t get enough of it.

    A/N: Petunia doesn't want to believe the prompt. And Elene, wow. Great minds think alike, eh? (I really didn't write mine on purpose to be like yours, promise! )
    Petunia stared at the flower as it grew, faster and more beautiful than any flower ought, out of the handful of dirt in her sister’s hand.

    “For you,” Lily said, smiling shyly.

    “How’d you make it grow like that, Lily?” Petunia asked. It couldn’t be the way the petunias in the garden grew. There had to be some trick to it.

    “I just wanted it to grow, and it grew. Like any other flower, I guess, only faster, ‘cause I wanted it to be fast.”

    Petunia shook her head, frustrated. Lily was holding out. She had to be.

    A/N: Inspired by a little something Neville mentions in The Philosopher's Stone.

    Algie Longbottom could not believe what he had just seen. At the bottom of the third story window stood his great-nephew Neville, covered in twigs and leaves but otherwise uninjured after being pushed out of a third story window and bouncing off some shrubbery like a trampoline before landing safely on his feet. This was a miracle but not one that broke any law of nature.

    “Augusta, come quick,” Algie roared loudly. “You won’t believe what just happened.”

    In an instant, the old lady Apparated beside him. “What happened?”

    Algie grinned from ear to ear. “Your grandson is a wizard.”

    ‘Slytherin?’ Sirius’ mouth fell open, and he shook his head in denial. ‘No. That’s not possible.’

    Andromeda sighed. ‘Well it is true, Sirius. Being a Slytherin doesn’t define me as dark or whatever you’re thinking, though. It’s just… a metaphor for my personality.’

    Her little cousin grinned; suddenly he let out a note of laughter and hugged Andromeda. ‘You’ve thought about how to break this news to me before, haven’t you? “A metaphor”,’ he scoffed. ‘It’s okay, though, Andy. I just hope I’m not put in Slytherin.’

    ‘Oh, you won’t be a Slytherin, Sirius. A fool could tell you that.’

    A/N: I normally ship a together Katie/Oliver, but this was all I could come up with.

    Sitting at the bar, Oliver scrubbed his face with his hands, trying to pretend that, just for a second, he wasn’t himself. His ‘companion’ was still sleeping off their drunken night together up in the room he’d rented for just that purpose. But no matter how many meaningless one-nighters he had, it didn’t banish her from his mind.

    “Get out!”

    “C’mon, Katie, be reasonable. It was one time!”

    “GET OUT!”

    No, forgetting about a nasty divorce would take a miracle.

    The bartender approached and asked, “What’ll ye ‘ave?”

    Oliver chortled and thought wryly, Who needs miracles? I need Scotch.

    People said love was a miracle. But Hermione knew there was one miracle greater.

    It was a miracle the Healers had taken her wand away.

    “Hermione, calm down!” Ron pleaded.

    “You put my baby on a broomstick,” she shrieked, “and he winds up with a concussion, and you ask me to calm down!”

    “It was an—“

    Not wanting to hear it, Hermione stormed back into the hospital room, where Ginny sat beside her nephew’s bed.

    “It’s a miracle you haven’t killed him yet,” Ginny said with a whistle.

    “Yeah,” Hermione agreed. “A miracle.”
