Title:Their first meeting
Rating: G
Summary: A short drabble/head canon.The title pretty much says it all. It's basically the Great Hall scene, from Goblet of Fire, retold through Fleur's POV(Point of View). She is intrigued by a certain bushy-haired and brown-eyed bookworm. Comments and critique are welcome :)


I smirked slightly as I watched the bushy-haired brunette angrily argue with the red haired boy over what I assumed was the rights of house elves. The boy with the glasses seemed to be as amused by their childish antics as I was.
I giggled quietly to myself and decided to have some fun with them. I sauntered over to the Gryffindor table, positioning myself behind the red haired boy, 'Ron', the girl called him.

He wasn't the one who caught my eye though, I was much more interested in the one they called Hermione. I cleared my throat, hoping to catch her attention.
She didn't notice me, neither did the boys. I frowned, as I was unaccustomed to being ignored. I spotted the shellfish stew in front of Ron and a spark of inspiration hit me.

"Excuse me, are you wanting ze bouillabaisse?'

Ron turned to face me and I could see that he had instantly fallen victim to my thrall, I sighed quietly, annoyed by his obvious lack of self control. The ginger continued to gape at me like I was some amazing creature in a zoo, I dismissed his foolish gaze and instead focused on the girl. She had a fierce look on her face, as if I had offered up a challenge rather than a polite request. I raised an eyebrow at her, wondering why she was so threatened by me.

Looking at her angry expression and back at the dumbfounded boy, I suddenly understood something.She was 'with' the ginger.
For some reason, I was saddened by this, but on closer inspection, I realised that the boy was obviously oblivious to her true feelings. I smiled warmly at her which seemed to surprise her before she shrugged away her surprise and resumed her intense glare.

The boy with the glasses, Harry I think, gave me the bouillabaisse, I politely thanked him before turning my attention back to Hermione.

" 'Ermione, is it? I look forward to zeeing you again"

I flashed her another dazzling smile but she seemed to be only slightly phased by my thrall, my interest in her grew even more. I turned and walked away from the table, smiling happily. My visit to Hogwarts had just begun to get interesting.

Title: The Trick Step
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: PG
Word Count: 17,000
Characters: Luna Lovegood, Pansy Parkinson, Draco Malfoy, and implied combinations thereof, including OT3 (though any hinted romance is not the focus of the story, because honestly, this is mostly gen)
Summary: The notes kept coming, and Luna kept finding them. Luna encounters a mystery that needs solving – one that takes her beyond anything she ever imagined.
Author’s Notes: Written for journeystory. This is supposed to be set vaguely during the fourth book, just before the Triwizard stuff. When it comes to any underlying romantic feelings, there's kind of an unplanned emphasis on Pansy/Luna, possibly unrequited, because Pansy really, really wanted to like Luna, and I couldn't stop her. The connection between hope and feathers belongs to Emily Dickinson. I recently read Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, and ever since, I've been really intrigued by how the transition between childhood and adulthood, and coming into oneself, is shown in stories. So I think Pansy is somewhat reflecting that here, especially in her attraction to Luna.

Title: I am silver and exact
Author: amatara
Summary: Seven years; seven times Snape refused to show weakness. He never did learn.
Character(s): The adults, mostly: Severus Snape, Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin, Voldemort, as well as Draco and (glimpses of) Harry. Plus one surprise. :)
Rating: PG-13 for some dark scenes - no darker than canon, definitely.
Word count: 4200
Author's note:Well, there was no way I could just let the last movie pass by without paying some kind of tribute to the series as a whole, and to one character in particular. This is what resulted; hope you'll enjoy! Thanks to mithen for the beta and for sharing in the squee.

It wasn’t Albus but Minerva who met him at the gates, ramrod-straight and composed as ever, apart from the slightest tremor in her wand hand. Snape surprised himself by not calling her on it. Not that he expected her to return the favour. He had few illusions left about the Dark Lord’s efficiency in expressing his ire; fewer about Minerva’s restraint in meddling where she shouldn’t. Bloody Gryffindor philanthropy. He swallowed and gripped the ironwork tighter.

Summary:  Viktor Krum has just moved into the most expensive block of Muggle real estate in London, and Hermione Granger wants to find out why.
Author's Notes: This was written for hp_spring_fling 2011. You can also find it posted over there. The title is from The Flood by Take That. The requester's prompts were: Happy ends, new love, not yet established relationships, fluff, humor, bantering, well written smut, One Hyde Park, a diamond tiara, and the lyrics from The Flood by Take That. I didn't get any smut in, and I took a bit of liberty with the diamond tiara. ;) Beta reader: En En Chan from PI.
