Word Count: 100
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."

Word Count: 100
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.

Word Count: 100
Characters: Cho Chang/unnamed female
Summary: Cho wants answers.  Takes place some time during fifth year.
Notes: Written for hp100.  For the "heart's desire" challenge.


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.

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.

In Death as in Life // PG

Title: In Death as in Life
Author: hikaru / _regarde
Archive: Please ask permission.
Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: PG
Characters: Sirius, Mrs Black, Remus, Harry
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
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.

How Dead is Dead? // PG

Rating: PG
Characters: Sirius Black, Cedric Diggory
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
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."
