    Title: Thats Not Enough
    Ratings/Warnings: implied character death? 3rd through 5th years
    A/N: Thank you for a lovely challenge, barmaids. I had a lot of fun with it.
    Also Abby is a character I just made up to be pals with Dennis Creevey

    Were ready to let it go, Abby said firmly to Dennis, stroking his hair. Its the last day of 1998. We can let You-Know-Who just be dead, cant we?

    Yeah, Dennis said. Thats not what I have a problem with, Abby. I have a problem with letting Colin be dead.




    Do you know, Mrs Weasley said softly, how much I miss Fred?

    Not bloody half as much as I miss him, George said angrily. Do you know what its like to have a missing half? Youve always had Dad, theres always someone there

    You have Angelina

    Thats not enough.

    Title: New Year’s Eve:1998
    Ratings/Warnings: 3rd-5th, Sexual Situations
    A/N: A surprisingly optimistic (imo) end to this challenge. Carole, Russia-thank you so much-this was really enjoyable and I’m expecting some of these to spawn one-shots. Happy New Year to you both


    Initially, Lavender wished she could remember something about her daughter’s father. The colour of his eyes, perhaps, or his height, whether he had kissed her, or she had kissed him.

    But from being in the pub with Parvati, who was more than drunk as she, if that were possible, to the pressure of lips on lips, hands on hips, eager to ignore the momentousness of the end of the year in the brief embrace of each other’s limbs, there was nothing.

    Later, she realised she no longer cared. He’d given her a daughter, and for that she gave him thanks.

    Title: Party at Malfoy Manor
    Rating/Warnings: 1st/2nd years, None


    There was nothing like a party at the Malfoys. Six-year-old Draco was uncharacteristically abuzz with excitement. He wasnt sure what he liked most about his familys annual celebration the dazzling decorations, the food and sweets (the house elves always seemed to remember to include his favorites), or the other children to play with and boss around.

    His parents sat in the drawing room, sipping champagne as they waited for the first guests to arrive. Lucius helped himself to a fancy biscuit.

    Delicious, darling, he said. You have really outdone yourself this New Years Eve.

    Narcissa smiled and inclined her head.

    Title: Steel-Toed Stilettos
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st/2nd Years—None
    A/N: Yay, ringing in the new year with rarepairage!


    “Dance with me,” Roxanne commanded.

    Oliver raised an eyebrow. “You’re joking, right? You know I have three left feet.”

    She shrugged. “I don’t care. Just more for me to step on, because I can’t dance either. It’s not the point.”

    “Then what is the point?”

    Whispering in his ear, she said, “If my dad is going to be glaring at us all night long, I’d rather ring in the new year with a big fat notice that I’m not letting you go and that he can just get over it.”

    Lips twitching, Oliver said, “I hope you’re wearing steel-toed stilettos.”

    Title: Happy new year, darling
    Warnings/Rating: Drinking. 3rd-5ths *gasp*
    A/N: I had to do the last one! And this one is so not in character for me.

    “It’s ten to twelve,” she stated. “I say that for every regret we have from this year, we take a shot. Then we let them go, and never mention them again.”

    Oliver grumbled, but obliged. “Here’s to sitting back and doing nothing about Voldemort until the Final Battle.” He knocked the liquor back.

    “And for not reaching Lavender in time.” A second shot drowned.

    “To letting in the Quaffle that cost us the Cup.”

    The regrets came until one minute to the new year.

    “Here’s to letting the girl I love go.”

    He relished the burn.

    “Happy new year, darling."

    Title: Midnight Kiss
    Warnings/Rating: 1st-2nd Years (There's a kiss, obviously, but not nearly enough for a warning...)


    The pub is warm with the air of Firewhiskey and romance.

    They stand together, the Pureblood princess with the Muggleborn nobody. No Slytherins had stayed. For the first time, she was free.

    "I wish tonight could last forever." It was the things like that that made her feel so guilty. And what hurt most was that she always felt the same way.

    "I know. Why does it have to end?" She's never been this happy. Neither has he.

    The countdown to midnight starts.

    "It doesn't."

    As the clock strikes midnight, they kiss.

    It changes her life forever.

    But she has what she always wanted.

    And she knows real love.

    Title: Facing The Music Part 2: Announcement
    Rating/Warning: cousin pairing, 1st-2nd
    A/N: Hoping the barmaids won't AK me for being this late... Speaking of which, Carole and Russia, thank you so much -- this has been so much fun, and it has meant I have a new OTP (I bet you can't guess what pairing this is ) This is set directly after my Day 30 drabble, Facing the Music, and the thing is still New Year's Eve... just

    "Lily, what..." Ginny says, and now she fixes Lily with a glare. “Tell me — now.”

    “W-we have an announcement to make,” Louis says boldly, and he holds on to Lily’s hand tightly as everyone stops what they are doing and a curtain of silence drapes around the room. But then Louis falters. “I... that is to say... we...”

    “Louis and I are lovers,” Lily nearly shouts. “There. We’ve said it.”

    “B-but...” James begins, but he gets no further.

    “They love each other.” Heads turn towards Victoire. She continues, “They love each other, and that’s all that should matter, shouldn’t it?”

    Beautiful banner by the lovely Pooja/Ginny Weasley Potter.


    Keep calm and carry on my wayward son.

    Title: Cheap Champagne and New Beginnings
    Ratings/Warnings: 3rd-5th years; implied sexual situations, alcohol drinking.
    A/N:This was a lovely challenge, barmaids! I only wish I hadn't been too busy to participate every day. Thank you for running this and happy new year to both of you!



    People were calling it a time of new beginnings.

    Katie spent her New Year’s Eve in some Muggle’s flat in some city safely away from familiar faces. When the clock struck twelve and the people started cheering in the streets, the man beside her was snoring and she felt numb and empty.

    She fetched a bottle of cheap champagne from his liquor cabinet and looked out the window at the masses of people and lights.

    “Happy New Year’s, Fred,” she murmured. The champagne hissed down her throat and she cried because this was nothing like a new beginning at all.

    Thank you to Hokey for the beautiful banner. And thank you to everyone who nominated and judged --I'm so grateful to you <3.
