I took prompts, and I'll be posting the resultant drabbles as I complete them.

2. zephre prompted me with Draco/Neville: itch, bug, wonder.

An Examination of Importance (G; Draco/Neville; 150 words)

Who would have thought that Longbottom would turn out not to be merely an itch that Draco needed to scratch? Tall, handsome . . . loving—full of wonder at the simplest of things, things that Draco had never before paid any attention to but now found fascinating—Neville was becoming . . . important.

Yes, that's a good way to put it, Draco thought, warmly snuggled against Neville's broad chest. Smells good—that's important, too.

He had to enjoy this quiet time whilst he could, as Lovegood would be arriving on the morrow with a jar full of some form of strange bug she'd found on her travels. Draco had never seen anyone become so excited over the prospect of entomological research before—and he was going to stay, even though the thought of seeing Lovegood made him more than a little nervous.

Watching Neville become excited in any context, however, was too good a prospect to pass up.

I've had a soft spot for this pairing for some time.
