    A/N: Hopefully it's not too un-obvious, but the wild card is supposed to be Harry. However, brevity is a turd.

    “Kill Muggles? Why would anyone do that?” James had no idea who this Scorpion bloke was, but he couldn’t wrap his head around the idea of doing something ridiculous like killing for the fun of it.

    Shaking his head, Dad whispered, “I’ll explain later, but right now, I need you to stay here and keep quiet.”

    Worried for his father, James asked, “What are you going to do?”

    His lips twitching, Dad said, “He won’t even know it’s coming.” And with that, he darted off, leaving James with the thought that this holiday might not be so bad after all.

    Title: Really, Ron?
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st-2nd years.
    A/N: Wild card entries are a key ingredient in practically every single reality show in my country. It usually takes place through a lucky draw.




    “Honestly, the two of you are never going to become Aurors at this rate.”

    Harry gently prodded his bishop, trying to convince it to sacrifice itself. Ron frowned at the chessboard.

    “You two really should-“

    “We’ll study later, Hermione.” Ron waved her away flippantly.

    “Fine,” she muttered furiously, as she stood up to leave the table. “Fine! But you know Snape doesn’t accept students who get anything less than an ‘O’ in the Potions OWL. ”

    “She’s right you know, “Harry said quietly after she left.

    Ron groaned. “Mate, what are the odds Snape would allow a wild card entry?”

    Title: Christmas Games
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st/2nd year/ none
    A/N: There was no way Hermione's parents would have let her spend every family Christmas with the Weasleys.

    It was the final question. The Weasleys were squeezed onto several sofas and chairs, whilst the Potters and Grangers (Hermione’s parents and temporarily Hermione in the interests of balancing out the numbers) were sitting opposite, equally squashed together.

    They had been playing Trivial Pursuit, having shuffled Wizarding and Muggle cards together.

    The Weasleys looked set to win, but the Granger-Potters could choose the question.

    Beatrice Granger smiled, picking the perfect question for the opponents.

    “In 2011, who won the Men’s Wimbledon Final?”

    There was a long silence. Eventually Ron tentatively said, “Tim Henman?”

    Laughter.

    Arthur ventured, uncertainly, “Djokovic?”

    Silence.

    A/N: Success! I managed to enter every day.


    “Djokovic has won.”

    “What?” Hermione replied absentmindedly.

    “Wimbledon. Djokovic just won the Men’s Wimbledon Final,” Mr. Granger said, gesturing to the telly.

    “Oh. That’s nice.” Hermione looked back down at her book. Mr. Granger sighed.

    “You used to love tennis, when you were a little girl.”

    “I know. But then... things happened.”

    “Yes, all this magic business happened. I don’t blame you for getting distracted.” Mr. Granger looked at his daughter and smiled sadly. “Things were a lot less complicated back then.”

    Ron’s voice could be heard from upstairs, swearing at his misplaced toothbrush.

    “Tell me about it,” Hermione said.

    A/N: I hope it's not much of a stretch for a Serbian boy to be in Durmstrang. I figured since Krum attends, and Bulgaria is right beside Serbia, an OC with the name Djokovic would be cool. Too bad he couldn't compete at the Tournament though


    Petar Djokovic stormed up to Headmaster Karkaroff.

    “Why am I not on the list to go to Hogwarts?” he demanded. The Headmaster looked angered at his abrupt interrogation, but he couldn’t give a damn. He was suppose to compete at the Triwizard Tournament in England; he was promised a spot with the hopeful candidates since day one.

    “I have decided to replace you,” Karkaroff said. Djokovic fumed and spoke through clenched teeth, “why?”

    “There can only be one champion. And I’ve decided that champion will be Viktor Krum.”

    The headmaster swiftly turned and walked away, leaving Djokovic seething with fury.

    Ratings/Warnings: 1st/2nd Years with no warnings.
    A/N: Winning isn't everything, and being the champion isn't always the most important thing. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like wresting Djokovic into a drabble, I think it's best if I leave him on the tennis courts.

    The House Cup was not awarded that year. In the wake of the largest battle Hogwarts had ever seen, it seemed unimportant. Merely a silly competition for children, children who had their childhood ripped from them.

    The masses flooded out from the Great Hall, stopping to gaze at the wreckage that once was the Entrance Hall. As the battle-wearied people scattered in search of family, friends, and healing, each knelt down and picked up a gem that had spilled from the shattered hourglasses. It was a trophy they all shared, proving they had survived and would make it through together.

    A/N: Shameless use of Djokovic, I know, but I'm just assuming that the guy's birth name wasn't 'Scorpion'. So sue me for wanting house points, lol.

    Naturally, James was not staying put.

    When Dad darted off, James went down the stairs to watch everything unfold, hiding behind the base of the banister and watching the doorway behind the Scorpion.

    Then James heard Dad’s voice shout, “Freeze, Djokovic!”

    From there, their prey tried to do a runner for the exit, but James had other ideas. Creeping from his perch, he stuck his foot out in front of the guy, who was keen on glancing over his shoulder. The dull thud of his face hitting carpet made James grin like mad.

    James, One. Scorpion, Zero. Best. Holiday. Ever.

    “Harry! The Cannons just beat the Harpies! This puts them right into the league championships!” Ron yelled. “It’s all thanks to their new Seeker really, Djokovic, he’s simply amazing!”

    Harry tuned Ron out. He really didn’t care about all of the new Seeker’s stats, in fact, all he cared about was that he had something nice for Ginny when she got back. If she had lost, she would surely be in a rotten mood, and he needed something to offset it.

    * * *

    Harry woke up chuckling to himself. Of course it was a dream. The Cannons could never make the championship.
