TWENTY YEARS ON


Summary: Twenty drabbles about twenty characters, and where they are twenty years on from the start of the Harry Potter series – in honour of the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, first published on 26 June, 1997. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY POTTER!

Characters: Aberforth, Andromeda, Angelina, Arthur, Charlie, Dean, Draco, Fleur & Bill, George, Ginny, Hagrid, Harry, Hermione, Luna, Minerva, Molly, Neville, Percy, Ron, Teddy

Rating: G

Words: 2,000 exactly

Notes:

By “twenty years on from the start of the Harry Potter series” I mean I’ve set this roughly in the summer of 2011, so it’s 20 years after the start of the main action of Philosopher’s Stone (1991: Harry’s 11th birthday/getting his Hogwarts letter), and 13 years after the end of Deathly Hallows (1998: when Harry’s nearly 18).

Probably some small deviations here from Pottermore and latterly JKR revelations about characters’ post-canon lives, since I tend to view those as interesting expanded universe but not strictly canon, and because in some characters’ cases I’d already written stories and established headcanons before JKR’s info came out. Minor stuff, though! Details like where Fleur works. :-)

Inspired by bfcure's Russian translation of my short Torchwood fic "Foreign Languages," I thought it would be fun to try my own hand at a translation...into German. This would not have been possible without the German-beta-work-extraordinaire of [livejournal.com profile] vulcan_rhapsody. Thank you!!

SIRIUS...BLACK (SIX DRABBLES)

Summary: Sirius Black, and the most important people in his life. Six moments.

Characters: Sirius, Remus, James, Peter, Lily, Harry, the Black family

Rating: T / PG-13 (no pairings, but mentions of violence, grief, death, all that canon stuff)

Words: 6 x 100

Notes: This is a little challenge I set myself – six drabbles (each 100 words precisely), each set five years apart, each starting with "Sirius" and ending with "Black" – for “The Day of the Black Dog,” a Sirius-centric event happening today over at the [livejournal.com profile] sirius_black community. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] huldrejenta for pointing me to that event!

Each heading shows Sirius' age/the year, and the person who's the focus of the drabble.

OH THE RISING OF THE SUN AND THE RUNNING OF THE DEER

Summary:
The Marauders act out a cheery favourite carol. (Christmas 1980.)

Characters: Lily, James, Sirius, Remus, Peter, baby Harry

Words: 100

Notes: This drabble (yes, it’s precisely 100 words if you don’t count the interspersed lyrics!) was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] author_by_night’s prompt of “Christmas Carol: The Holly and the Ivy” at the [livejournal.com profile] rt_morelove Stocking Filler Exchange, but then I just couldn’t seem to get this to be about Remus and Tonks – it insisted on being the Marauders instead. So, it's here, not there.

I kind of think this ought to be a picture, but I can’t draw, so it’s a drabble instead. If it’s songfic for a medieval Christmas carol, is it still songfic?

RON WEASLEY PROVES HIMSELF WRONG

Summary:
Written for the Stocking Filler Exchange at [livejournal.com profile] rt_morelove, for [livejournal.com profile] gilpin25’s prompt: "Listen, no bloke in his right mind's going to fancy Tonks when Fleur's around." (Ron, HBP, Ch.5)

Characters: Tonks, Ron and Fleur

Words: 100 exactly

Notes: Dear reader, you’re going to have to squint at the timeline a bit with me here. Let’s imagine there’s a time at the start of HPB that’s after Fleur arrives at the Burrow and Ron says the bit above, but before Tonks gets too depressed to change her appearance, even though we know that’s not exactly the order in which things happened…

Also, hey, I wrote my first drabble!
