Original poster: florahart

Title: Cross Words
Words: 100
Rating: PG13
A/N: You wanted fluff for the prompt "sacrifice?" Okay.

"Potter. I've an early meeting with a client."


"So as it's gone eleven, would it kill you to either douse the sodding light, or remove yourself and your bleeding crossword puzzle out of here?"


"You've put down your newspaper, but you aren't leaving."

"I know. I didn't mean, no, it wouldn't kill me, though that's true. I meant, no, I'm not going."


"I thought you wouldn’t mind staying ...up just a bit longer."


"Nothing like a little exercise to help you rest…"

"...I suppose it won't be the first time I've sacrificed sleep for you. Brat."

"Incentive" (Snarry, PG13)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Incentive
Pairing: Snarry
Words: 100
Rating: PG13
Challenge: Detention

Harry hated detention.

Hated every minute. Every tick of the clock which, were it up to him, would be silenced and charmed to move through each minute in half the time.

At last the time was served, and he was free to go. He waited for the miscreants to shuffle off and closed the door, then turned and opened the short passage to his quarters.

"How was it?"

"Endless. How'd you stand it?"

"As I recall, you were usually there with me."


"As I further recall, you quite like that trait."

"I do. Shall I demonstrate?"

"I've been waiting."

"Memory Intact" (Snarry, PG)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Memory Intact
Pairing: Snarry
Rating: PG for mention of a shared bed
Challenge: Dream

Harry put the child back to bed at last, smoothing his sweaty hair. He didn't know how much longer Severus was going to tolerate the nightmares waking them, but Frankie had no one else, and they owed Neville this much.

"Sorry," he murmured, climbing back into bed.

"It will pass."

"Yeah, but. Maybe we should go ahead and let St. Mungo's remove the memories."

"After what that did to his father? Not my son." Severus folded his arms, the conversation closed, just as another wail rose from the nursery.

Harry started to get up, but Severus stopped him. "My turn."

"Waiting in the Dark" (Snarry, all ages)

Original poster: florahart

Title: "Waiting in the Dark"
Words: 100, despite the scene's valiant efforts to be 130 or so. Heh.
Rating: all ages
Challenge: Touch

It's dark, and it's cold, and he's never going to manage this, is he? Harry shifts, careful and quiet.

Without warning he feels it: presence, behind him, invisible in the black black dark. He whirls but doesn't speak. Silence.

"You will have just the one chance, Potter," say the feelings in his head. They stand close enough to touch. "On my signal." Fingers brush his, chilly and yet they brand him all over again, and then Snape retreats into the unborn fray to judge the moment.

Harry waits, warmed, and counts his heartbeats until it's time. He can do this.

"Until Later" (Snarry, PG13?)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Until Later
Words: 100
Challenge: Promise

The first time, it was a fight: teeth were involved, and tongues and lips, battling for position, battling for control, battling for the right to say what it was they were doing. Neither of them had wanted this, and neither knew how else to begin.

The second time, it was hurried, positions and control already figured, desperation driving them. They each had work to do, and fifteen stolen minutes would have to do, and no time for dominance.

The third time, Voldemort stood ready, and a mile away, so did they. This kiss, the last until after, was a promise.

"Merry Christmas" (Snarry, PG)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Merry Christmas
Pairing: Snarry
Words: 100
Rating: PG
Challenge: Firsts

"Potter. This is absurd."

"Yes, I've rather got the impression you think so. Just, all right, you look positively shaggable. Now just smile."

"Fat chance."

"I'll make it worth your while…"

"Oh, I'll see to that."

"Okay, if you smile like that in the photograph, we'll have half the Wizarding world visiting, hoping to steal you away."

"Excellent. Then you'll understand what fun it is to worry about… "

"Worry? Why, Severus Snape, do you think I'd leave you?"

"It's nothing."

"Right. Well. Once the card is done, I'll demonstrate not-leaving until you're convinced."

"Stupid Christmas card."

"You're not smiling."

"Listening Skills" (Snarry, G)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Listening Skills
Words: 100
Pairing: Snarry
Rating: G
Warning: Implication of MPreg, maybe.
Challenge: firsts.

Severus was growing quite concerned.

Harry, on the other hand, seemed entirely unworried. “When she’s ready,” he said, steadying her on her toy broom and watching her play.

Severus didn’t see how he could be so calm.

The day she turned three, Lily finally spoke.

In paragraphs.

Of sixty and seventy words.

In which she expressed exasperation at the inadequacy of spoken language.

He asked her why she hadn’t spoken before, and she scowled, his expression on her dainty features. “Father. I did. In your head. You didn’t listen.”

Severus gaped, then looked at Harry, who shrugged. “Thought you knew.”

"FIRST!" (Snarry, PG)

Original poster: florahart

Title: FIRST!
Words: 100 including the usernames.
Pairing: Snarry
Rating: PG for implied smut
Challenge: firsts
Warning: crack.

scarhead First!

    greasy_git Potter. Juvenile. You're first only because you are sitting next to me and saw me hit "post."

      scarhead So?

        greasy_git So, if you insist upon juvenile behavior, I may conclude it would be inappropriate to engage in any sort of post-supper exercise.

          scarhead Oh, please. You won't turn me down. Secret weapon!

            greasy_git You've no secrets from me. I can read your mind.

              scarhead Yes, and I've learned to too, just a bit. I know you can't resist when I do …this.

                greasy_git Potter!

                  weasley_king Oh, GOD. Personal! Not public! Get a ROOM! *sporks eyes*

"Trading Spaces" (Snarry, any age)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Trading Spaces
Words: 100
Pairing: Snarry, implied
Rating: G? PG? Not smut.
Challenge: back to school
A/N: so there's a new video clip today of Dan Radcliffe in a different role. He says a line that is in this drabble which has cracked up many of us, so it had to be done.


"What the hell did they do?" Harry gaped as the doors opened.

"Horrifying, isn't it?" Minerva McGonagall came out of her office. "Perhaps we ought not to have awarded Dobby the Hogwarts renovation contract.

Severus shook his head. "Potter, that creature--"

"I know. Remember the hats."

Severus looked at the lilac and burnt-umber spangles festooning the stairs and sighed. "Perhaps we should …go unpack."

When they opened the door to their new quarters, Harry winced. "Oh, god. Get me a bourbon, would you, babe?"

Severus was already heading for the spirits, but stopped to glare.

But he brought the drink.

"Ripple" (Snarry, PG)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Ripple
Pairing: Snarry
Words: 100
Challenge: Back to School

It's absurd. Obscene. Wrong. However, it could work, and once he's thought about it long enough to be sure it's possible,, he can't think of anything else.

The materials take time to gather. Polyjuice to last weeks. A Time-Turner, which the Ministry won't miss; memory charms are useful. The piece to hold it. And back he goes.

Severus Snape, aged just-eighteen, is easy to seduce, easy to persuade. If he ever has cause to kill, he'll do it, he promises, because "Harvey" has asked.

Harry goes back to the present to bring him back. It can't have changed much, right?

"Actions Speak Louder Than Words" (Snarry, uh, PG13?)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Pairing: Snarry
Rating: PG13? I dunno.
Words: 100
Challenge: Their insecurities

Harry knows he isn't good with words.

It's okay, most of the time. He's not an idiot, and he gets his meaning across well enough.

But that's when he's talking about Quidditch, or discussing battle deployments with Ron. Harry's never been much for abstraction and discussion, just action, often without thought.

Severus closes his eyes and tells Harry more, say that again, tell me… and Harry flushes hot and wonders again how on earth he's found the right things to say here.

Severus catches the echo of the sentiment and smiles, but doesn't explain. He likes Harry unbalanced and insecure.

"While He's Not Looking" (Harry/Severus, G)

Original poster: florahart

Title: While He's Not Looking
Words: 100
Pairing: Snarry
Rating: G
Prompt: Their idiosyncracies

Harry set the newspaper down, crossword half-finished, and yawned, deliberating between another cup of coffee and an early nap. After a moment, he stood and stretched, then shuffled back into the kitchen.

Severus waited until he was out of sight, then reached for the discarded paper to fix it.

It was bad enough Harry approached the crossword in apparently random order. The least he could do would be to reverse the existing fold rather than making haphazard creases nearby.

There. Much better.

Harry came back and picked up the paper, lips quirking.

Severus read the front page and ignored him.


"Precise Measure" (Snape/Harry, G)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Precise Measure
Pairing: Snarry
Rating: G
Prompt: their idiosyncracies
A/N: just a quickie--going with the obvious.

"What are you doing?"

"Chopping vegetables for stew, because you asked me to see to supper. What does it appear I'm doing?"

"Well. Chopping vegetables, actually. But--"

"So, you asked because you enjoy forcing me to state the obvious? Still?"

"Because I was unclear regarding why the pile in the rubbish is larger than the pile in the dish, actually."

"The recipe requires one-inch cubes."

"I think there's leeway."

"The author wouldn't have specified if it weren't relevant. Therefore, the non-conforming pieces are useless."

"Oh. …Maybe you should save the remainders for another time."

"Then they wouldn't be fresh."

"Change of Plans" (Snape/Harry, G)

Title: Change of Plans
Words: 100
Challenge: In their spare time
Characters: Harry, Severus (their daughter)
Rating: G

"Potter. I don't have time."

"You do, and I know because I looked at your bloody calendar."

"You what?"

"I knew you were going to claim you were too busy."


"It's not that bad. Besides, Dahlia really wants you there."

"She does not. She gets upset about my…"



"No, she just worries you aren't having fun."

"She'll be right."

"Just watch her. And try to smile. Come on. Hermione took her with Ned while I came to convince you. It's time."




"Here. I'll take us."


I cannot believe she's old enough for football."

"Space Shortage" (Harry/Severus, PG)

Original poster: florahart

Title: Space Shortage
Words: 100
Characters: Harry and Molly
Rating: PG?
Challenge: Conversations with a Third Party

"There aren’t enough rooms!" Molly's hands fluttered.

Harry sighed. "Mrs Weasley, actually, there are."

"No, no." She counted on her fingers. "Charlie and Hermione; Ron and Luna; Bill, Fleur, and the babies; the twins; Percy and Katie; Ginny and Oliver; and that leaves only the one room, but there are two--"

"Mrs. Weasley, that's what I'm trying to explain. We can--"

"And no one should sleep on the sofa!"

"We can share. We. Do share. Uh. Severus and I."

"…Oh." Molly gaped at him, then softened. "I suppose he won't be any better about calling me mum than you are?

Original poster: florahart

Title: Change of Availability
Words: 100
Pairing: Snape/Harry, Snape/Lupin
Rating: Um. PG13? No smut.
Challenge: conversation with a third party

"Actually, no."

"What? It's Tuesday, Severus!"

"Lupin. We've never been exclusive, but--"

"You're upset about Tonks? That's been off and on for years."

"No. I am aware… No."

"What, then?"

"It's that I've a… I don't entirely know what to call him."

"Oh. What, is he jealous?"

"No. But I find. I just don't. Bugger. It's just not right any more."

"…I see. May I know to whom I lose my brilliant Tuesday shags?"

"Not if you'll hex him."

"God, no. You should have someone that makes you happy. So should I, come to that."

"You may not have Harry."

"New Approach"

Original poster: florahart

Title: New Approach
Words: 100
Pairing: Snape/Harry
Challenge: Try something new

"It works for me, Severus. Just try it."

"They're all competent in your class, Potter."

"They don't start that way; no eleven-year-old is really competent at defense."

"You never have stories of exploding cauldrons--"

"Sure I do. Remember? Just last week, Anne MacElroy dismembered the supply cupboard."

"But that's--"

"Exactly the same. But I treat them as though I expect them to get it, and then they want to, and do."

"That isn't how I work."

"I know. Try it anyway. I think I can devise a suitable reward…"

"That, brat, is unfair and unworthy."

"Unfair, yes. But not unexpected."
