There are a number of transformations in the Potterverse. People can turn into animals, and can turn objects into other objects and even objects into animals, as well. Beyond the physical, though, there are other examples of transformation, such as Tom Riddle going from an orphan boy to the Dark Lord, or Harry from 'just Harry' to The Boy Who Won. Also, there is the definite transformation of the wizarding world of one full of pure-blood corruption to one of dystopia and the to one of peace. There is plenty of material on this subject in the books, indeed.

Your challenge is to write a drabble that features a transformation, either one of an object/animal/person in a physical sense, or one of a more abstract manner — such as an emotional, psychological, or social change. As long as it's firmly based in the Potterverse, the subject matter is up to you. Just a few rules, though:

~All drabbles must be between 300-800 words.
~All drabbles must be rated no higher than 6th/7th years, and heavy trigger warnings, such as Strong Profanity, Non-Consensual Sex, Dubious Consent, and Self-Injury are not allowed.
~All drabbles must have reasonably clean SPaG, as well as be plausible and of submission standard, or the activity might be disallowed for your monthly requirements. Treat this drabble activity as you would a story challenge; it should be of quality and as free of errors as you can make it. A beta is not required, but care and attention to things a beta might look over is.
~Please use this form on all drabbles:

As always, this activity is due by the end of the day on the 15th (midnight US Pacific time/8am GMT on the 16th). Happy drabbling!
