I took one prompt a piece from my (now private) posts at DW, IJ, and LJ. Here's the gen drabble:

alicit prompted me with Severus and Xenophilius Lovegood: swimming.

A Stunning Objection (PG; Severus, Xenophilius; 100 words): Things aren't going swimmingly.

"The Giant Squid—"

"It's not a squid, Headmaster. It's a tool of the Old Ones, and I've come to offer myself up to it for how I've failed my daughter."

"Nonsense!"

Splash!

"There are simpler ways of ending yourself, man!"

"If you mean poison, I won't take it!"

"Just go to the wedding and object to it—you'll make your point and Narcissa will kill you for disrupting Draco and Luna's day!"

"Do you really think she would?"

"I'm sure of it!"

"Why didn't you just say so?" Lovegood asked.

Severus Stunned him as soon as he was out of the water.

Oh, Xeno... you are such a tool. Good thing Severus knows how to handle tools.

Wait, that came out not quite how I wanted...

Xeno isn't less of a nutter for being post-war, then... How can he think Luna wouldn't mind his suicide? But this is all about him, not her.

Severus (or Narcissa) would be saving Draco from his conflicting urges to kill Xeno for making his daughter unhappy and not to, because it would make her unhappy.

I don't think anything could make Xeno less than a nutter. *snorts* I do feel a bit sorry for him, though; Luna's marrying Draco after everything would put a strain on any father.

Thank you for commenting! :D
