    "Yes, Harry Potter!" said Dobby at once, his great eyes shining with excitement. "And if Dobby does it wrong, Dobby will throw himself off the topmost tower, Harry Potter!"
    "There won't be any need for that," said Harry hastily.


    (For this drabble, please take inspiration the above quotation/scene. You don't have to write about Dobby.)

    Title: I would do
    Rating/Warning: 3rd/5th Years – Character Death, Obsessive Behaviour
    A/N: This sucked a lot less about 100 words ago.

    I would do anything for her — climb a mountain, slay a dragon with naught but my sword and wits. She need only ask, and it is hers.

    But she won’t come home. I tried to make her see reason, but she spurns me and refuses to return to England to attend her mother’s deathbed. I have to bring her back; it’s the right thing to do.

    And as the life drains from her veins and onto my tunic, I decide I must cast myself from her mother’s tower. In life, we cannot be together, but perhaps in death, we shall.

    A/N:




    He was determined not to mess this up. He knew she’d say yes, but Hannah deserved the best—not some blubbering, nervous proposal followed by a dropped ring (a scenario he’d only considered after Ron’s parting words that afternoon: “Don’t drop the ring.”).

    “Neville? You’re hurting my hand.”

    He relaxed his grip and apologized. Brilliant.

    “You’re quiet… is everything all right?”

    And suddenly, he knew the significance of this moment as he had known others in the past. He stopped and faced her, taking both her hands as the fear fell away, leaving his heart free to form the words

    A/N:


    I can’t, I can’t, I can’t.

    They lie together at night: eyes shut tight. She strokes his chest, his arms, his face, body pressed close and lips at his ear, whispering.

    You have to. For Draco, for our family.

    “If anything happens to you or Draco…” he says one night but she shushes him silent, for the walls have ears and eyes and God knows what else now that the Dark Lord resides alongside them in the Manor.

    “You will do what you must. We all will.”

    This is no longer about the blood of others. This is about family.

    Title: Frustration
    Rating/Warning: 1st-2nd years, no warning
    A/N: It's late and I'm tired.

    What is the "right" way or the "wrong" way to do this task? Ron wondered.

    When you assign me a job, you must give me the authority to do it as I think best, not force me to guess both "What is the best way to do this?" and "What does she think is the best way?"

    If you won't accept my judgment, then you should stipulate exactly what you want, instead of leaving me to guess and then punishing me if I guess wrong.

    "Responsibility without authority" -- that's what it's called. It's an unfair position to put someone in.

    And .... let's give a cheer, and all the applause for SLYTHERIN - an emerging power.
