    Title: Theatre
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st-2nd years- no warnings
    A/N: Again, Lucy is the Squib sister of Draco Malfoy. Earlier this year, some time in February, she and him queued for tickets to see King Lear at the Donmar Theatre, in London, that is one of the best theatres in the world. Since I'm planning on queuing this week (and also queued for King Lear), it's nice to know Draco's also done it


    “What?” I said, staring at my sister in disbelief. “You get up at five in the morning to queue for theatre tickets?”

    “Well,” Lucy shrugged, “I wouldn’t have to if I’d booked them in time. But I forgot. Do you want to come? It’s fun.”

    Fun? It’s February. It’s cold and wet––”

    The next morning I was shocked to find myself and Lucy standing in the rain, queuing.

    I didn’t enjoy it. But that evening, sitting in the dark, watching a man disintegrate into madness on stage, it was worth the aching feet and hours that morning in the rain.

    *****
    Dean gives me his order and five quid.

    "Chips and a drink," he says. "I want my change."

    "Yeah, yeah." I wave him toward the loo, locking onto the blonde two spaces up in the next queue over. She is a confection of a girl; all berry blue eyes, pink sugar cheeks, and glazed cherry mouth. She peeks at me over her shoulder.

    She orders and looks back again.

    "Oh, yes, Darling. You...me," my shark eyes vibe.

    She grabs her milkshake and heads my way.

    "Hi," she winks at the top of my head.

    "Hey," says Dean, behind me.

    Ratings/Warnings: 1st-2nd years/none
    A/N: Thanks to welshdevondragon for helpin' me choose this one.

    The sun was hot on Seamus’ head and he longed to conjure up a hat. However, he was sitting in a crowd of muggles trying to pretend he knew nothing about magic and everything about football.

    “What’s the net for?” he asked Dean.

    “To catch the ball if the goalkeeper doesn’t,” he replied. Seamus nodded slowly.

    “And they can’t use their hands?”

    “No, I’ve told you that a million times,” Dean said, exasperated.

    “I’m sorry, but it’s a hard concept to understand.”

    “And enchanting a hard ball to smash skulls isn’t?”

    Seamus shrugged, saying, “At least it makes it interesting.”

    Title: Cheating
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st/2nd Yrs - none
    A/N: ---

    ---

    Harry strolled through the Museum of Quidditch, his wife and children in tow. His attention was drawn to a display on the Golden Snitch, and he moved closer, curious about the little ball that always felt so good in his grip.

    “Look, Dad.” James pointed at a nearby tapestry. Snidget Hunting, the plaque underneath proclaimed. Harry gazed at the first portion, which showed a group of wizards with nets and wands trekking through a forest on their quest to find the little yellow bird.

    “Well, that’s cheating,” Harry mused. “I never got to use a net when I was Seeker.”

    Ratings/Warnings: 1st/2nd Years -- None
    A/N: Haven't we all tried to work off a fast food-induced malaise? And for what it's worth, I did this when I was a kid because I couldn't get the ball high enough otherwise, hehe.

    * * *

    “Time to work off some of those chips, son.”

    James grumbled as he was led outside soon after dinner. However, his annoyance became curiosity when Dad handed him an orange ball the size of a Quaffle. “What are we playing?

    “Netball.” To demonstrate, he took the ball from James and threw it toward a net attached to a hoop hooked to a pole.

    Then it was James’s turn. He ran below the hoop and heaved the ball underhand through the bottom.

    But his smirk of triumph was short-lived. Dad shook his head and said, “We might be here a while.”

    Title: Matchmaking
    Ratings/Warnings: one mild profanity

    It had been a horrible evening but Rose Weasley had learned one thing. If a couple see fit to invite two single friends to dinner, said couple will make suggestive comments, leave the singles alone in the room as much as possible and do all they could to ensure the evening ended with two pairs rather than a pair and two singles.

    It had not worked. Which was a pity because Rose rather liked Curtis Jordan. She thought he was nice and funny but she did not like being told what to do. Especially by Lily and Scorpius bloody Malfoy.

    Ratings/Warnings: 3rd-5th years/mild suggestions of alcohol abuse and sexual situations

    “Well, mate, we’re still single,” Sirius said cheerfully. James didn’t reply as they walked toward the Three Broomsticks, downhearted from Lily Evan’s rejection.

    The warm pub was crowded, but when Rosmerta saw the two boys, she stopped everything and got them a drink. Sirius winked at her and even James couldn’t help but flash a flirtatious smile.

    “The bottle’s in the back,” she whispered.

    “You know how to treat a man, Rosmerta,” Sirius said, artfully disappearing to the storeroom.

    “Just be careful tonight, or you might start seeing double.” She smiled, leaning low over the counter to reveal her bosom.

    A/N: Set in 7th year, when Lily first began liking James.

    Severus plucked up his courage.“Lily, would you like to partner with me-“

    “Evans!”

    Severus cursed. He could recognise James Potter’s voice anywhere.

    “What do you want, Potter?” Lily asked him, her eyes narrowing suspiciously.

    “Potions assignment. Want to partner with me?”

    “Yeah, ok.” She blushed.

    “What were you saying, Severus?”

    He paused. “Nothing. Just wanted to know if I could borrow your quill.”

    “Sure, “ she said, fishing the quill out of her bag. “Good luck with the assignment.”

    He sighed as he watched her walk away. Because Severus understood. Some people were just destined to go through life single.
