Characters: Rowena Ravenclaw, Godric Gryffindor
Summary: For the Sorting Hat challenge. The founders try to determine how to sort the children.
Notes: Written for hp100.


"Rowena, we need something to categorise these children. We won't live forever." Godric Gryffindor sighed and leaned back in his chair.

"Can't we enchant something? Something to sort them into houses which represent our best qualities?"

"It must be something neutral, love, something which will favor no particular house. Merlin knows Salazar would love to enchant something wicked to keep the 'impure' from his house."

"What if we four enchant something? The object could choose. Or the child could choose." Rowena shrugged her shoulders.

"No, that will never do. It should be mundane." Godric looked about the room. "Like this old hat."

"Ah. Indeed."

Characters: Harry/Ron
Summary: For the Pensieve challenge. Ron wonders what memories to put in the box.
Notes: Written for hp100.

Ron stared at the ornately carved box. His parents bought him a Pensieve for his commencement; now he had to fill it.

He had so many memories that he'd like to put into the Pensieve: going on adventures, being ridiculed by Slytherin, being a loser at Quidditch, being a winner at Quidditch...

But he could only choose one today, so he thought long and hard before deciding.

His first kiss. One small hand planted on his neck, drawing him closer, a name whispered in nervous reassurance. "Harry..." A sloppy, tentative meeting of lips, hidden from view by the Invisibility Cloak.

Cho ignored her apprehension and slunk toward the Room of Requirement. She'd heard stories about the Mirror showing your greatest desire and decided that she required the truth.

Once inside, the Mirror was displayed in its grandiose glory. She closed her eyes and concentrated on her desires.

When she opened her eyes, she was shocked. She saw herself smiling and hugging another person - another girl! Cho's eyes travelled up to the girl's face, and she gasped.

"Not her!" Cho flinched and turned away. Cho didn't want to desire her. Tears clouding her eyes, she spun and tore from the room.

Notes: Written for hp100. For the crossover challenge. 

 

"Attention!" McGonagall clapped loudly. "Due to a most unfortunate accident," she glared pointedly at a clump of red-haired Gryffindors, "we no longer have a Sorting Hat. Instead, we've a Sorting Troll."

Whispers engulfed the Hall. Trolls were dangerous! And smelly!

"This troll is not a typical troll. He's wise, gentle, and smaller than normal." McGonagall frowned sternly. "Now, let the Sorting begin! Aneshka, Rupam!"

An Indian girl approached a lumpy burlap sack, from which emerged a small, aged green fellow - the Sorting Troll.

"Ah, brave you are. Wise too you are." He waved his tiny hand. "Ahh, Ravenclaw, you are!"

Characters: Severus/Sirius
Summary: Severus is missing his favourite slippers.
Notes: Written for hp100. For the "when pigs fly" challenge, aka the egregiously out of character challenge.



Severus sighed and looked under the bed for his bunny slippers. When his exquisitely manicured hand returned nothing but dust, he rolled his eyes dramatically and flopped back onto the bed, rolling smack into his lover.

"Sirius, darling," he said, perfectly chipper, "have you seen my Wunnybun slippers?"

Sirius turned and smiled glowingly at Severus. He reached out and ran his fingers through Severus' long, shiny hair. "I believe, love, that they were thrown towards your armoire today whilst in throes of passion."

"Indeed. Shall we make love by the armoire to retrieve the slippers?"

"Of course." Both grinned devilishly.

Pairing: Sirius/Remus implied
Summary: A letter from beyond the veil. Sirius writes a few words to Remus.
Notes: Written for hp100.



If you are reading this, then I most certainly am dead. Hopefully, I died nobly, not due to an unfortunate Apparition accident. Perhaps I even died to save you. Regardless, Remus, I am gone; you must carry on. You're the last Marauder. Please watch after Harry as James would've had us do, but please never lose that sense of self that I loved you for. Don't forget me, Remus, but don't let my death consume you, either. Don't sink into an endless depression, love, and instead know that I will wait for you, and join you on the other side.

Characters: Hagrid
Summary: A fate worse than death. Hagrid is expelled from Hogwarts.
Notes: Written for hp100.


Hagrid sighed. For a half-giant, he looked rather small and defeated. At his feet sat his broken wand, snapped by the Ministry for a crime he swore he didn't commit. Next to the wand was a crumpled piece of paper, a letter from the Headmaster confirming his expulsion. A great choking sob escaped his lips; he buried his head in his hands. He was alone in this world now. He had no friends to turn to, no family to love him, no one to tell him that he was still worth something. Life as Hagrid knew it was essentially over.

Rating: PG-13
Characters: Lucius, Severus, and a poor innocent Muggle
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: Severus is initiated into the Death Eaters.
Notes: For the first time challenge. Written for hp100.



Lucius perched one hand on Severus' shoulder. "Do you understand why you must kill?"

Nearly imperceptibly, Severus nodded.

"Tell me."

Severus shook his head. "We must do this because He requires it." He paused. "We must show loyalty."

"From your initiation until your death, you are His." The men spoke in unison, Lucius' voice proud and cocky; Severus' soft and halting.

"Then do it. Show loyalty to our Lord," he whispered harshly. The older man nudged his protégé forward until Severus was before a body-bound Muggle.

Severus inhaled, raised his wand, and uttered the most Unforgivable curse of all.
