The prompt and original drabble posts for this drabblethon were lost to my back-up snafu. These drabbles were written on the occasion of my 400th friending.
97. For rhiannonmr, whose prompt was "Macgonagall and Snape discussing the Weasley twins. Would be real cool if they've jsut done a successfull prank on Snape. I keep seeing Snape with pink hair a la Tonks for some reason here."
Only Boys (G; Severus, Minerva; 100 words)
"I should kill them both before the Dark Lord hears of their prowess," Snape groused, as McGonagall ran her wand over his newly pink locks, which had curled disturbingly about his head like a wig of fat sausages.
"Well, at least it's a tidy style."
"Calm yourself, Severus. I'll—"
"I know—I'll recommend them to the Dark Lord, myself—and then I'll sit back and wait for them to fail hi—"
"Stop that! They're only boys."
"Often the same. In any case, they've done their work well. You'll simply have to use a glamour until the charm—"
98. For rhiannonmr, whose prompt was "Molly postwar in a cemetary. Anyway it goes the Weasleys will most likely have casualties and one of the most haunting scenes in OotP was Molly's boggart."
When the Hands of the Family Clock Cease to Turn (PG-13; Molly; 100 words)
"I've knitted each of you a jumper. I know it must be cold, and I've managed to come by the most inexpensive cashmere! It's crimson and quite soft—you'll love it. Don't make faces. You know you never dress warmly enough. Oh! Did I mention? You may not approve at first—but she truly is happy with him so I know you'll come to understand—Ginny is engaged to Blaise Zabini! Now, it must come as a shock. I realize we all expected that she would marry Harry, but, well, he and Hermione—yes, Ron, she's happy, too—seem to get on so well together."
99. For rhiannonmr, whose prompt was "Snape/Harry postwar Godric's Hollow."
Time for Grief (PG-13; Snarry; 100 words)
"Fred appears to George all the time."
"Not everyone becomes—"
"And Neville's parents, now that they're ghosts, they talk to him."
"But Harry, that is—"
"They died here, so why don't they speak to me? I come all the time, and never once . . . ."
"Fred Weasley has lost his girlfriend to his dead brother, and Mr. Longbottom . . . I can't think you begrudge him his conver—"
"Of course not—I just want my own!"
"Harry, your parents wouldn't have wanted you to dwell. They would want you to be happy. That is why they never speak to you—so that you can move on."
