Characters: Neville, his gran
Summary: Neville gets some important results.
Notes: Written for hp100. For the OWL challenge.


Neville glanced about nervously. The long-awaited letter containing his O.W.L. results was sitting in front of him, unopened, begging to be read, and his gran was nowhere in sight. Even though he promised that she would see his results first, he knew that he wouldn't keep that promise. Gran would just compare him to his parents anyway. He needed these results more than his gran did. He was the student, he was the one who sat the exams, not her. He reached slowly out and drew the envelope closer to him. Neville gritted his teeth resolutely and pried the envelope open.

Rating: PG-13

Characters: Severus Snape and an unnamed male character.
Summary: The Quibbler has an interesting scoop on Snape.
Notes: Written for hp100. Also references my "When Pigs Fly" drabble.  For the Quibbler challenge.

Investigators have reported that Severus Snape, former Death Eater and Potions Master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is not as tough as he'd have students believe.

Snape allegedly owns a pair of fuzzy bunny slippers, which he wears whilst relaxing at night. Conversations were overheard between Snape and another man (see story on page 3B, "SNAPE TAKES GAY LOVER!") last week, where a seemingly intoxicated Snape repeatedly requested a pair of bunny slippers, before yelling "Yes, oh, Merlin, yes!" Our reporter left the scene immediately to request a photographer. (see story on page 4A, "INTIMATE PHOTOS OF A DEATH EATER:)


In Death as in Life // PG

Summary: Some things never change, even in death.
Notes: Written for hp100.


Sirius awoke to horrific screaming that he was quite sure he'd heard enough of in life.

"ASSOCIATING WITH MUDBLOODS! HALF-BREEDS! MUGGLES! HORRID BOY, TARNISHING THE FAMILY NAME! OUT! OUT OF MY HOUSE! DISGRACE TO THE WIZARDING WORLD! MY SON, MY OWN SON!"

He kneaded his temples with his fingertips, hoping that dealing with his mother's screaming voice after his death was merely temporary. Perhaps once he was done experiencing this particular horror, he would be able to do something more interesting, like haunt Harry, or spy on Remus in the shower.

"FILTHY BOY, STUCK WITH YOU FOR ETERNITY!"

No, apparently it isn't temporary at all.

Summary: Sirius has a few questions about the permanence of his death.
Notes: Written for hp100.


The teenager, clothed in Quidditch robes, looked down at the newest arrival to the Other World, who was currently staring at his hands in apparent confusion. "You're dead, Sirius." It was a matter-of-fact statement, not a question.

"How dead? Definitely dead, or didn't-see-a-body dead?"

"Didn't-see-a-body dead. You tumbled through the Veil of Utter Doom."

"Veil of Utter Doom?"

"That's what we call it here. Most of us come to the other world via actual deaths rather than stumbling through some Ministry-protected Death Curtain." The boy -- Cedric -- snorted.

Sirius frowned. "Is it more like never-coming-back dead, or haunts-you-in-your-sleep dead?"

"Never-coming-back dead."

"Well." He coughed. "That sucks."

Summary: Umbridge meets an appropriate end.
Notes: Written as a mini-challenge for hp100.



The dried blood encrusting the desk didn't seem entirely out of place. Red is a Gryffindor colour.

Draped carelessly on top was the misshapen lump of a body previously used by Dolores Umbridge.

"I thought you knew I didn't want you in my classroom." Minerva McGonagall smirked and walked away.

Summary:  What happens when love isn't love at all?
Notes: Written for tpm100 - Based on "Break Your Heart" by the Barenaked Ladies.

I tried my hardest, but I couldn't love him. I suppose I should've ended it, but instead I stayed with him out of some strange sense of determination, or maybe even cowardice.

But in the end, a relationship based on the desire to be in a relationship is doomed to fail. And fail it did.

"I don't love you, Obi-Wan." I braced myself for the worst.

But there was no response. I was met by stony silence for what seemed an eternity, until he coldly told me: "Do you think of me as weak? My heart will be fine; stop wasting my time."

Notes: Written for tpm100



When all was said and done, all I was left with was the faint taste of him upon my lips and my half-hearted promise to train the boy. Before I knew it, he was lifeless in my arms and I was alone, wallowing in my misery and self-pity.

He's gone; without him there is no point in carrying in.

He comes to me sometimes in dreams, though, reminding me that he'll always be with me. As I loved him in life, I love him in death, for I know that eventually we will be joined again. Love, it seems, knows no bounds.

Notes: Written for hp100.


"I'll miss you more than you could ever imagine. You've been a complete and total prat for the seven years that I've been cursed with your presence, but I fear that somewhere along the line -- perhaps when you ceased to be The Boy Who Lived and instead became The Boy Who Died for the Cause -- I fell in love with you."

Snape dropped his head, refusing to let a single tear fall. The sheet of parchment in his hands trembled, and he choked back a sob.

"Today should be a celebration. You should be graduating, and instead, you're dead."

Characters: Snape, Lucius
Summary: Upon graduation, Snape chooses the lesser of two evils.
Notes: Written for hp100.



"Come with me," he commanded. "Come with me or I'll make sure that you don't leave these grounds alive."

I had no choice. If I didn't follow Lucius, I would die. And no Snape, not a one, has ever given up life that easily.

I didn't want to follow him, but I reluctantly did. I nodded curtly at my classmates, gathered my few belongings, shoving my Certificate of Completion under my arm, and trudged along behind the blonde.

Most graduates go to work after commencement. I, instead, signed my very soul away to a Dark Lord. The Slytherin legend lives.
