    A/N: this is Harry's thoughts about Hogwarts

    This is where I feel most at home. With the trees, the grass, and the shimmering lake. I stand at the top of one of the many towers. The wind whips through my hair and frees my mind from any troubling thoughts. I remember so many things, good and bad. So many memories have occurred here. Even though some, if not most of them are frightening, and even downright dangerous, I still think of them fondly. This is where I have always belonged. This is my world. Standing on top of a tower and looking down on the forest below.

    Harry sits at the lunch table. A cheese sandwich (that's good) and a carrot. He eats the sandwich, surreptitiously hiding the last bit in the pocket of his baggy, hand-me-down trousers.

    Then he eats the carrot, trying to chew quietly. He definitely does not want Aunt Petunia to shut him in the house.

    Afterwards he slips out into the garden and sits on the curb farthest from the kitchen window, waiting. The door of the adjacent house opens. A man lets a little dog out onto the porch. Harry holds out the bit of sandwich and softly calls, "Here, boy."

    Title: A Thousand Galleons
    Rating/Warning: 1st-2nd years; no warnings

    Even as Petunia places the blancmange on the table in front of Dudley and gives Harry the dirtiest look she can manage, he feels like none of it’s real. The summer drags long and hot but it’s as if he’s living in a dream until reality arrives on the first of September.

    Hogwarts is in his blood and behind his eyelids, waiting for him to return. Hogwarts is Ron; Hogwarts is Hermione. It’s Treacle Tart, Quidditch and Hagrid’s rock cakes. He’d give a thousand Galleons for one of those rock cakes instead of the slimy blancmange in front of him.

    Rating/Warning: 1st/2nd Years – Assault by Almond
    A/N: This is a nasty thing to do to someone, but I can totally see Snape doing this to Petunia for being a b-word.

    He sees both blancmanges and knows which is which. One is made of simple cream, and the other of almonds; otherwise, they are identical. Being the attentive mother, Mrs Evans labels the almond jelly for the sake of her eldest daughter’s allergy.

    Princess Tuney, the shrieking shrew. A freak, she always calls him. Her complaints when Severus was invited to an Evans family gathering were loud and colourful. Mrs Evans calmly asked her daughter to be more charitable, and with the loudest sigh she could muster, Petunia relented.

    When no one is looking, Severus switches the plates and the labels.

    A/N: The idea popped into my head and I kinda couldn't resist. I think James and his family are visiting the Weasleys, by the way, but that much didn't make the cut.

    “What are you reading, Rose?” James poked his head over her shoulder and Rose shoved her book under her pillow, face flaming.

    “Nothing,” she said.

    “Yeah, right, nothing. Give it here!” James wiggled a hand.

    “No.” Rose turned to glare, and he lunged forward, sticking his hand under her pillow. He danced back, holding the book. “Ooh, The Keeper’s Keeper.” He flicked through the pages and snorted. “‘Quivering like a blancmange,’ you can’t be –”

    “Give it back!” Rose shrieked. James darted away and ran out of the room, calling out choice phrases. Rose gave chase, screaming threats after him.

    “Why are you mad? I ate it, didn’t I?”

    “You looked like you were choking!”

    “You can’t choke on that stuff, Hermione! It’s too… wet-looking and slippery! I apologized, so why are you upset?”

    “I cook like my mum, Ron, with Muggle recipes.”


    “So, you’ll hate my food.”

    “What? No I won’t.”

    “You’ll cry for your mum’s cooking.”

    “Never… I’ll adjust. I’ll even eat the slime.”

    “I’m serious, Ron.”

    “I know, and I can’t wait to try your version of that stuff. Just… tell me what it’s called.”

    “Stop it.”

    “I’m serious, Hermione. What’s it called?”

    “It’s called… blancmange.”
