    Title: Chia Gnome
    Rating/Warning: 1st-2nd years; no warnings

    In December Harry came home from his Aurors' pre-Christmas office party with a gag gift: a hollow gnome figurine of unglazed pottery. He filled it with water through a hole in its hat and then smeared a moistened paste of chia seeds (supplied with the figurine) over the corrugated areas of the figure's lower face and chest. Within a few days the seeds began to sprout, and a few days later the gnome sported a lush, green, fuzzy beard, to the great delight of three-year-old James, who loved to run his little hand over its softness.

    "Gently," Ginny reminded him.

    Title: Age Lines
    Rating/Warning: 1st/2nd, death implied

    Getting over the death of a person is never easy.
    If that person was a part of you for all your life, it is impossible.
    And if every day when you look in the mirror, you see his face, it might break you.
    That's why George grew a beard. That and he just didn't have it in him to get up in the morning and shave. All the mirrors were gone from the flat anyway.
    But then he caught a glimpse of his beard and was reminded of Dumbledore's spell. The only time he saw Fred as an old man.

    A/N: Just a silly thing.

    Seamus leaned forward, looking in the mirror, and stroked his fingers over his upper lip. The moustache was coming on nicely, he thought, though it was a little more gingery than he’d hoped.

    A chorus of clatters and clinks announced Dean’s arrival with beer and food. Seamus squared his shoulders and went into the living room.

    “D’you want lo mein or sesame chicken? I figured whatever you didn’t eat, I would,” Dean said, unpacking the food.

    “Er, chicken,” Seamus said, waiting.

    Finally, Dean looked up, and grinned. “What’s that on your face, mate? It looks like you glued it on.”

    Lavender pushed her face closer to the glass, studying her chin.

    “Finally noticed, have you?” the mirror commented dryly.

    “No.” Lavender drew in a shaky breath. “It can’t be.”

    “It’s not so bad… just magic the hairs away.”

    “Not so bad?” Lavender railed, glaring at the glass as a buzzer sounded in the distance.

    Then a strong arm pulled her close under the blankets, and she knew the noise had been the alarm… the stubbly hairs on her face only a nightmare.

    Sinking happily into Blaise’s embrace, she felt the warmth of his breath against her neck.

    “Happy fortieth, love.”

    A/N: All he wanted was a trim...

    “Whadya want?” said the hairdresser, sounding rather bored. “A Dumble Grass? Runespoor Spirals? Snitch Scraper?”

    “Ooh, how much is that last one?” enquired Scabior, winking. “You know I can pay you in more than just Sickles, love.”

    She gave him a dirty look and raised her wand, muttering something that sounded like, “Baby’s Bottom it is then.”

    Scabior felt the hairs on his chin shifting, twisting and shrinking. He turned towards the mirror on the bench next to him.

    He screamed.

    “What have you done to my beard, you flaming lunatic? I asked for a trim, not a bloody deforestation!”

    A/N: This is ridiculous, and I’m sorry.

    “Ron, for God’s sake, will you please shave that thing off? Hermione will murder you, and then she’ll come after me for letting you out in public with it!”

    Resisting the urge to stick his tongue out, Ron shook his head. “No way, mate. I’ve been growing this for months, and I’m not about to give up now.”

    Harry rolled his eyes. “It’s your funeral.”

    “Nope,” Ron said as he stroked his hard-earned facial hair. “It’s my wedding, and nothing is more dignified than a neatly trimmed goatee.”

    “Nothing’s more dignified than spending your honeymoon on the sofa,” Harry muttered.
