Archive of Five Words Stories

Post  Potteraholic on Sat Feb 19, 2011 4:27 pm

 * Five Words - Main Archives * 


This is a perpetual work-in-progress, periodically updated. Thanks!

This topic serves as an archives of the Five Words stories written on the 'Potty Games' thread from the Harry Potter Lexicon Forum as hosted on World Crossing which ceased operation on April 15, 2011. This Archive of Five Words stories was reposted, story by story, from July to August, 2011. None of the original emoticons, font styles, or colors were archived. Any emoticons that appear are those that converted easily to BBCode, like : ) or ; ) to create Smile or Wink. Hopefully, the absence of the original emoticons does not affect a reader's understanding of any of this Archive's content. ~ Potteraholic, August 28, 2011

This is Archive of Five Words stories will be a locked thread, as it's just meant to be read, not replied to, like a discussion thread would be. This Archive currently contains all the stories from Volumes I to XIV, and those that are completed in the current volume, XV. For those unfamiliar with this writing game, please read the information in this post. As of this posting, on August 28, 2011, there are 146 stories (139 numbered stories, a 2nd version each of 2 of them, and 5 'revision' stories). The stories include the usual cast of characters: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, and Snape, as well as many others we all know and love (or hate) from Jo Rowling's amazingly rich and complex Potterverse. The subjects of these stories run the gamut, from stories set during one of Harry's six/seven years at Hogwarts, to stories set just before he was born (and even much earlier), to stories set post-DH. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. So I thought it would be helpful to try and categorize these stories somehow to make it easier to find a story about a particular subject that might interest you, the Harry Potter Lexicon FanFiction reader.

In a following post, you will find a 'Table of Contents' chart that contains the categories I thought these stories fit into. Each category title is linked to a post that has a list of all the stories within that category. It is not an exact science, categorizing Five Words stories. So perhaps you'll find a story of a particular subject in a slightly different category than the one you might have Sorted it into. For those who participated in writing a specific story in the past, I think you will be able to find what you're looking for after no more than 2 or 3 tries. So... good luck, everyone!

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

Revised August 28, 2011




This post contains two links: 1) a multi-volume index of Volumes 1 to 14 (and beyond), 2) a table that has the stories categorized by topic.

The stories are posted in this order: 1) finished story 2) final stats and 3) post-story comments. Most of the stories have 3 posts connected to them. There are 2 stories that have 2 different endings, so those stories have 5 posts connected to them. However, all of the stories in Volumes VI and VII do not have post-story comments. Post-story comments had to be assembled from different posts following the posting of a finished story, and I was not able to finish assembling the post-story comments for those 2 volumes before World Crossing closed on April 15, 2011. There were some great comments there after each story, to be sure, but there was just not enough time to collate them into self-contained posts for the individual stories. ~ Potteraholic (PAH)


A huge THANK YOU to Verity Weasley for archiving Volumes 4 to 11 to transfer them over from World Crossing to our new home here on forumotion. As much as I wanted this archive to make it over here, intact, from our previous home, I didn't have the time to do the actual copying and pasting myself with the other threads I was archiving at the time. When these stories/stats/post-story comments were safely archived somewhere, thanks to Verity's efforts, I didn't need to feel so anxious about not having enough time to get to them, before World Crossing closed on April 15, 2011. So now, they are all formatted and reposted here. These archives would not be possible without your help, Verity! Smile

Archive of Five Words Stories - Volume I, Story #1

Post  Potteraholic on Wed Jul 13, 2011 9:13 am

This story was first posted by Finn BV - Nov 1, 2005 2:21 am (#122 of 2977) on the World Crossing home of the 'Harry Potter Lexicon Forum'.

Well, it's still a little unclear about some earlier plot lines, but here's the story in its entirety. I've also made statistics (Embarassed) about how many times each person has contributed to the story and how many words, etc. Very Happy If you're interested I'll post it.

Potty Five Words: "Ron slumped into the comfy armchair."


Ron slumped into the comfy armchair by the fire. “Snape,” he grumbled. “He is really putting a damper on my victory in Quidditch yesterday[.] So… any ideas on how we can finally make Snape feel repentance for being such a slimy, awful git?”

Harry answered, “No idea, Hermione?”

Hermione looked up, but suddenly, in a loud crack, Dobby said, “Harry Potter, sir. Dobby must thank Harry Potter for the sock Dobby found under Harry Potter’s bag. Dobby’s favorite chocolate cake was also there so I want to thank you and your Wheezy,” he said in one breath.

“Er… alright,” said Harry, not knowing what Dobby was talking about.

“Back to my Snape problem,” but just then, Colin Creevey, and, of course, his brother broke into song: “Let’s do the Hippogriff! Come on guys!”

“I don’t care about any stupid song! Grow up, guys!”

Ron groaned and said, “Let’s go to McGonagall’s office to complain about Snape.” Ron gestured to the door, but McGonagall had spotted them before they could even more. “And where do you think you all are headed? Educational Decree Number 122 does not permit you to simply come here and ask me to fire Snape!”

“But he —” said Ron before she could continue.

“Mr. Weasley, are you the headmistress here?” Ron mumbled something that sounded remarkably like something Mrs. Weasley would not like to hear. “Well, back to class you immature kids! Act your age!”

But just then Ginny Weasley shouted, “Oh my gosh! Look what Snape is doing down stairs. This looks to me very…” Parvati screamed! Seamus shouted, and Lavender cried out, “Won-Won!”

The portrait hole swung open. “Everyone will please not panic! All students to their dormitories at once!” The voice was deep and loud, and Harry could tell that it belonged to Rufus Scrimgeour, Minister of Magic. What was he doing here, at Hogwarts?

Suddenly there was a loud crack and Dobby reappeared. “Dobby apologizes, Harry, for appearing at such a time as this, but Professor Sprout and Professor Binns wanted to offer some advice about the terrible things that might happen because Snape is evil!”

“Sprout and Binns think… what?”

Harry’s head was still spinning when Hermione cryptically said to lie down.

“You look ill, pale, and too much like a ghost! Really, Harry, listen to me!”

“But Hermione,” said Harry.

“Think about Snape, Harry!” persisted Hermione. “Do you want to tell off Snape tired as you are right now?”

“Yeah, Harry, really?” said Ron.

Harry really did want to listen to them, but he, at the same time, wanted to throw them all a terrible fit; he was sure that Mrs. Weasley might have something to say about his use of colloquial words. Still, it was only right to let Ron know he was turning a bit green with envy at Hermione and should work on his attitude with a certain young lady with brown hair.

“Ron,” he said.

“Snape?” asked Ron at once and quickly — too quickly, perhaps.

“Ron!” yelled a nervous looking Neville from directly behind Ron. “Your hair is turning bright green with enormous speed! Did you take that polka-dot pill sitting next to your nightstand? You know, the one that looks like a bushy-haired girl?”

Ron gulped. “N-no!” said Ron knowing that if he now admitted being in love with “her,” the guys are going to tease him for the remainder of his school years, starting tomorrow.

THE END!

It's so funny to read it all back. Very Happy

These post-story comments were first posted by Potteraholic - Nov 23, 2010 11:31 pm (#2889 of 2977) [Edited Dec 12, 2010 11 am] on the World Crossing home of the 'Harry Potter Lexicon Forum'.

Post-Story Comments for Story #1, Volume I,
Potty Five Words: "Ron slumped into the comfy armchair"

This story was written from Oct 10, 2005 to Oct 31, 2005. Twelve writers contributed to the story, which is 575 words long. Four of the twelve writers posted feedback.

- Finn BV, Nov 1, 2005 2:21 am: Well, it's still a little unclear about some earlier plot lines… It's so funny to read it all back.

- dizzy lizzy, Nov 1, 2005 5:48 am: LOL finn! It is quite funny to read it back. Amazingly it actually makes a little bit of sense .

- CatherineHermiona, Nov 1, 2005 12:38 pm: Yes, it is funny! I knew story was long, but this long.............. And I am interested in the statistic about how many times each person has contributed to the story and how many words, etc. It should be funny and useful about who will start a new story.

- Snuffles, Nov 1, 2005 12:42 pm: Hee hee I did enjoy that, but I don't think JKR has anything to worry about!!

- Finn BV, Nov 2, 2005 3:05 am: Harry really did want to listen to them, but he, at the same time, wanted to throw them all a terrible fit; he was sure that Mrs. Weasley might have something to say about his use of colloquial words. Still, it was only right to let Ron know he was turning a bit green with envy at Hermione and should work on his attitude with a certain young lady with brown hair. --That's the paragraph that makes the least sense to me. Oh well. On with the new!

Post  Potteraholic on Wed Jul 13, 2011 9:20 am

This story was first posted by Finn BV - Nov 23, 2005 12:09 am (#258 of 2977) on the World Crossing home of the 'Harry Potter Lexicon Forum'.

Potty Five Words: "Ginny stood up quickly."


Ginny stood up quickly and wobbled precariously on the very slender pole. “Hermione, you should try and ask Dumbledore if he knows how to cheat…”

But Hermione interrupted her furiously: “Ginny, watch out! You’d about break fifty school rules if you remain up there.”

“Oh, I know, but don’t you think that I look better over here?”

“Ha!” said George. “I think you would look great in that nice pink hoodie that Hermione always wears on her romantic evenings with certain boys who happen to go about saving the world. Then again,” continued George, “you could just buy the Weasleys’ best new product that makes you look like you have just been rolling in the barrel of sticky white glue you are about to pick up and use for your essay’s pictures. Although I highly recommend you don’t use a non-magic way to glue on whatever you want to. Sticky stuff, no pun intended.”

Their conversation was interrupted by a gorgeous white ghost whimpering softly. “Excuse me, do you know that you are staying in the same hotel as the Chudley Cannons, who are just about my favorite Quidditch team, except that I think their lead Chaser needs to improve his game.” Ron looked supremely insulted, and was turning so purple that Uncle Vernon would have looked extremely pale while fuming, compared to him.

Harry decided to calm him by suggesting that they all go for a nice walk. “Say good-bye to the ghost, and Dudley, let go of the toffee, please.” The pudgy, sausage-like fingers finally dropped the sweets, as the ghost dived, passing right through Dudley’s vast stomach, and soared towards his lost treat. “Oh, right, that’s where I put the taffies!”

Ghosts can’t eat, thought Hermione. “Professor Snape, show yourself!”

“Aww…” said Snape as he transformed back into his greasy-haired self. “Little miss know all just has to go reveal that I like to disguise as The Grey Lady. Hmph!”

“Bad, bad Snape,” said Hermione.

“Wait,” said Ron. “I’m very confused. Hermione, how did you realize it was Snape under that ghost mask?”

“It’s obvious if you think about it, really,” said Ginny.

“Ginny? You are acting all smart – I mean, you’re always smart, but sometimes you’re so smart I could kiss you,” blushed Harry.

“In the other way you could not kiss me,” Ginny said. She looked like she was smiling to herself even though she wanted the kisses, but not if Harry wasn’t willing.

“Come on, guys,” Hermione sighed, as she reluctantly got up and put her hat on, “The walk,” she said, smiling at Ginny and then pulling a Chocolate Frog out of Ron’s pocket with a quick flick of the wand.

“Hey,” Ron exclaimed. “I wish I could that that swish-and-flick thingy. I never mastered it and look how horrible life turned out.”

“Wait!” cried Harry. “Things aren’t as bad as they seem! Cheer, up guys!”

“Hey, look, Ron must be feeling okay now. His hair is turning more of a normal shade. So, let’s go,” Ginny said. So they all trudged towards the hotel.

“Bye,” Snape said to them and George, with his pole in tow, as he went off in a hurry.

“Let’s go meet the other guys back at the Cannons’ celebration party!” suggested Neville, who up until now had been sitting quietly in a nice comfy chair waiting for his opportunity. He secretly smiled to himself as he thought about what he had planned for the trio and how they would react to meeting up close and personal such famous Quidditch players. Once this, what would be next?

Post  Potteraholic on Wed Jul 13, 2011 9:47 am

This story was first posted by Finn BV - Dec 12, 2005 5:39 pm (#335 of 2977) on the World Crossing home of the 'Harry Potter Lexicon Forum'.

Potty Five Words: "Harry stared down at his outfit."


Harry stared down at his outfit and breathed in slowly. He was rather impressed by the Gryffindor colors represented in his scarf and tie that had once belonged to his father. He was pleased to have finally found a date to go to the ball with.

“Ready, Ron?” he nervously asked as he made his way down the staircase towards Hermione, who was waiting for them.

“Yeah, whatever,” Ron unenthusiastically muttered with bad grace as he turned and looked at his sister, who was sitting close by with someone who Ron was not happy to see.

“Herm-oh-ninny, how are you?”

“Oh, Viktor!” Hermione swooned, much to Ron’s annoyance and Harry’s amusement. In fact, Ron looked ready to kill.

“Let’s go!” he said loudly. “Hagrid’s expecting us three, remember? With that awful suit of his he could make for an interesting companion to the — oh, wait, what’s the term? ‘Couple.’ ”

“Shut up, stirring things,” said a voice from the bushes.

“Marietta? What are you doing down there? Where’s your balaclava?” giggled Cho, who was talking toward Ron and Harry.

“Oh, hi…” said Harry awkwardly. “Um… how are you?”

“Hey, Harry. Good to see you again. How —” But here she got cut off. Hermione was calling to Viktor Krum to join them. “Hi, Cho,” said Hermione, walking over to join Harry and the others.

“Ugh,” said Ron. “Why did she have to wear that pink hoodie again?”

“For your information, Ronald,” spat Hermione, “I like that hoodie. Vicky, I mean, Viktor, gave it to me especially for my birthday three years ago because he thought it looks nice —”

Ron cut in, “Are you ever going to stop?”

Hermione looked livid. She turned toward Ron and practically screamed, “Crucio!” In stunned silence, Viktor started shuffling towards the exit.

“You forgot your wand,” Harry said.

“That ees not mine,” said Viktor.

Hermione, who had forgotten Viktor was present, suddenly kissed Ron passionately, ending the romantic love story between her and him. The “Crucio” ended; it was obvious from the “bloody hell” Ron blurted out.

This story was first posted by Finn BV - Jan 3, 2006 11:44 pm (#450 of 2977) on the World Crossing home of the 'Harry Potter Lexicon Forum'.

Potty Five Words: "The Crumple-Horned Snorkack and the Almighty Michael Corner"


Luna glanced over her shoulder at her Crumple-Horned Snorkack, which was drinking Seamus’ lemonade. She giggled a little at first. “They just adore lemonade that is nice and flat.”

Seamus looked at the empty glass and said, “That isn’t fair.”

“Nothing is, dear,” said Professor McGonagall who just came in at that moment. “The only problem with Snorkacks is their inability to fly, so they get hyper on lemonade and do the jitterbug. It’s quite amusing, until one jumps onto a stage, takes the microphone, and starts singing.” McGonagall shuddered.

“Sounds like you experienced it,” Seamus said. “Some things are so annoying!”

“No,” said Luna. “They aren’t if you’re looking properly. After all, their voices are so amusing and relaxing. One is just in heaven listening to them.” Seamus groaned.

“Now, now,” said Professor Flitwick. “Don’t you think you had better give the Snorkacks a chance? They can be good —“

A scream interrupted Professor Flitwick and Cho ran screaming towards the entrance. “Help!” she said. “It’s bitten my thumb off!

“Oh dear… that’s a lot of bleeding but I think Lockhart’s gone, so you’ll be on your own. Or you could try the Reparo spell, which I taught you, but don’t take too long to ‘flick,’ or things might not get fixed up the way you intended. My friend once got her spells mixed up!”

“Ok, Professor, can you just help me with this?” said Cho. Her complexion had changed from bright orange to almost snow-white.

Madam Pomfrey arrived just as she learned what was happening. “Oh my goodness!” she exclaimed, almost falling down. “It’s a very serious cut! Where did this happen? We need to get some fresh dragon meat on it pronto! Where’s Charlie?”

“Ron’s gone to find him,” said Harry, “and to get Hagrid, who can find Norbert’s place of residence.” Suddenly, a loud boom from underneath the crates Michael Corner was standing on made everyone turn and stare. His body was flung into the air.

“He’s dead!” said Ron.

“It can’t be!” screamed Parvati. “No! How could it possible be?! Michael is wearing a Fred and George invincibility cloak!”

“Haha! Fooled you! I can’t believe you actually believed it, seeing that I am the almighty Michael Corner. The same one as last year, when on one evening, The Powers That Be came to my house to take away my soul. I, of course, fought as I never fought before.”

“You’re my hero!” screamed Parvati from the chair in the corner. She stood up and kissed Michael so passionately that Ron’s ears went red. Cho wasn’t very patient. She stood up and slapped Parvati so hard that her cheek glowed.

“Whoa,” stammered Ron and stared at them with a look of utter confusion.

“What is going on here?” said Mrs. Weasley. “I thought you were on vacation with your Auntie Muriel, Ron!”

Ginny giggled.

“Ginny, stop teasing Ron!” said Luna defensively.

“He doesn’t need any defense,” said Hermione. “Except if he’s caught stealing from Snape.”

“As if I would!” he replied in some strange tone.

“Don’t patronize me, Hermione, I’m your friend,” said Luna with sarcastic intent.

But Mrs. Weasley smiled and patted Hermione’s shoulder.

Potty Five Words: "The Exhausting Journey from Romania"


Charlie just came back from an exhausting journey with Mad-Eye. They flew from Romania to see about getting some dragons to guard a secret package that they need to defeat the biggest, meanest, nastiest, smelliest, ugliest, most grotesque and terrifying dark wizard of all the Slytherins that had ever managed to commit such brutal, awful, disgusting, terrible, dreadful, arrant, gross crimes.

Harry was waiting with the Weasleys behind the large dragon blind they had constructed especially for this important occasion. Molly was fussing over who would be the dragon bait and simultaneously trying to make some nice wholesome porridge for her brood.

“Can I be of help?” Harry asked.

“Help!” yelled Mr. Weasley, totally desperate.

“Nope, we’re covered. The hired dragon Sherpa will act as the cook.” The sarcasm rang in Bill’s voice, and Harry decided to take a nap.

“I’ll give you a hand,” said Remus to Mrs. Weasley, who was busy peeling potatoes.

Meanwhile, Charlie untangled Arthur from his plugs. He was trying to get Arthur to help in the kitchen, but he saw that he wouldn’t have a chance.

“Anyone care for a nice bottle of chilled pumpkin juice?” asked George innocently.

“NO!” was screamed frantically from Ron and Hermione, who both were tying down the dragon.

“It wants raw meat!” Charlie screamed. “Raw meat right this instant!” But at the mention of ‘instant,’ the dragon surprisingly rolled over, wanting his tummy scratched. But then something dreadful occurred.

As Charlie leaned towards the dragon, Mad-Eye Moody suddenly bellowed, “Your wand, Charlie,” and appeared at the doors. He rolled his eye and gestured toward the five incoming dragons who didn’t look friendly at all to him. In fact, they chanted, “We aren’t friendly!” Unfortunately, Moody was the only person who understood Dragonish, so he had to translate.

Meanwhile, Molly handed everyone fireproof umbrellas, except Percy. “The bait, dear. Quick!” said Molly. Percy grumbled, but it was too late – he felt his legs lift off the ground.

“Remember what I told you!” bellowed Charlie. “Just remain calm!”

“He’s fainted,” squealed Mrs. Weasley. He’ll be alright when we call Lockhart to perform his miraculous spells that can save anybody who has no personality!” chuckled Fred, who was watching his brother with delight.

“Poor old Perce,” said Charlie, trying to stifle any giggles that could accidentally escape.

“Expelliarmus!” said Harry, exasperated. Percy dropped to the floor as everybody raised their fireproof umbrellas – except Percy, of course, who didn’t have any because he was wearing a fireproof raincoat.

“Ron, be careful!” Percy snapped suddenly, pointing behind Ron at an Acromantula. Ron slowly turned around. His face was white.

“That’s no Acromantula,” growled Moody. “That’s a very rare Mongolian prince in disguise.”

“I know by his tiny feet, which are characteristics for that kind of Mongoliacromantulamagus. The dragons are his allies. Seize them all!” cried Kingsley Shacklebolt, who had appeared with a team of purebred bloodhounds in single file. The dogs pounced immediately, but instead of pouncing the Mongoliacromantulamagus and the dragons, they swarmed around Percy.

“Mother, please! I am drowning! Save me!”

“No, Percy, you must do it by yourself. This is your undoing. You are not Percy. You are really Fudge, trying to overthrow Rufus Scrimgeour.

“Fudge? He can’t transfigure a teabag!” objected Kingsley. “Ha, Polyjuice Potion wouldn’t even do it, because — HA! — I am actually Fudge!”

- Finn BV, Jan 14, 2006 7:50 pm: Yay! This story has such a cool ending!

- Snuffles, Jan 16, 2006 9:02 am: Great ending to the last story

- Emily, Jan 16, 2006 4:23 pm: Am I the only one who didn't entirely get the ending to the last story?

- Finn BV, Jan 16, 2006 10:02 pm: Emily, I think, basically, they're trying to save themselves from the evil, etc., dragons, while people are preparing food, and then this Acromantula comes along, but it's not really that, it's a Mongolian prince, aka Magnoliacromantula, then it attacks Percy, and Mrs. Weasley gives him repentence for his actions in OoP, I would guess, and then considers him to be like Fudge if he were to overthrow Scrimgeour, then Kingsley reveals Percy isn't Fudge because Kingsley himself is.

The other explanation is that it doesn't make sense.

- Emily, Jan 17, 2006 11:28 pm: Thanks Finn! I though it was something like that, but I wasn't sure.

Potty Five Words: "The Order Member We've Never Formally Met"


Hedwig alighted on the blackened rock and cooed. “Amazing, isn’t it?” said Harry.

“No!” replied Ginny with a bored face that was telling everything. Harry looked with admiration at his parents’ wrecked house, though, and thought about last month’s shocking revelation. He had begged Ginny to be quiet, but she simply wasn’t listening. Harry suspected that Hedwig had bribed Ginny to travel with him, though she still wasn’t quite herself…

Ron and Hermione exchanged nervous looks, and took Hedwig’s letter from the enchanted bag they had mysteriously received.

“ ‘Mr. Potter is required to attend a banquet to honor the guest of honor, namely, the famous Aberforth Dumbledore,’ ” read Ron. “Weird. Isn’t this bag goatskin?”

Hermione looked disgusted as she held it aloft.

The rubble of the stones under their feet suddenly trembled ominously. A fissure widened and a strange green glow illuminated the scorched rubble. Ron grabbed Hermione’s arm and said, “Oh, no! We’re going to lose them!”

Racing through the now dark night, they stumbled frantically towards the now brightly lit lamppost. It was singing. And, Hermione noticed, it was illuminating a figure behind it.

The figure of Hagrid moved into view; his face was swollen almost beyond recognition due to hundreds of cuts that crisscrossed it. “It was Aberforth!” moaned the tearful Hagrid, “He said the goats had told him to do it. He was saying sorry while he cursed me, and that he had been on Dumbledore’s side all along.” Said Hagrid mournfully, “But poor Dumbledore never knew ’bout all them evil goats! He never knew the truth! He…”

But Hagrid was interrupted by the clatter of hooves of Firenze. “Harry, Hagrid, something terrible has happened just now. Follow me, but keep your hands to yourselves; the baby goats have a venomous bite and they are hungry. Beware the purple grass on the left side of the road because it makes you feel weak. Harry’s friends, you must be very careful when you are together; you are targets.” Harry looked at Ron and Hermione, and dramatically said, “Please just take us to the cliff, Firenze. So long, guys. This is my task. I —”

“Oh, don’t be stupid, Harry. How many times do we have to tell you we’re supposed to help you? Come on, let’s go hunt some Horcruxes, Ron,” said Hermione. And they set out on a walk up to the singing lamppost, beyond the purple grass, that was alight with a scarlet glare.

“I get it!” squealed Harry. “The singing lamppost is really Dumbledore in disguise!”

Thunk! went Hagrid as he realized what Harry had said, and fell face first onto the soft purple grass, which began to dance to the tune the lamppost was playing.

“Dumbledore?” said Ron. “Is that you? You’re a Luminapostimagus?!”

Hermione tried to hoist Hagrid his feet, but failed. Harry was panicky. Where was Firenze? A flash of light caught Harry’s eye. Was that really a merperson above water? “Albus!” shouted Aberforth, caught in the glaring headlight coming rapidly toward them.

“Hagrid, is there something you need to know? The Quest is –” But Firenze was suddenly interrupted by Dumbledore, who had called Sirius’ old motorcycle to him.

“This motorbike is no ordinary vehicle. It is actually a Horcrux. Well done, Harry.”

“Hey! Hurry up, you two!” Hermione said impatiently. “We need everyone who is able to Apparate in a circle.”

“Huh?” said Ron groggily. “But I thought you said Apparition wasn’t until March.”

“It’s August already. Pay attention, Ron,” said Mrs. Weasley. “We just got a letter from the Ministry. And –” she said sternly, “– we must get there as soon as possible! Now, everyone, gather your wands and your backpacks and form a circle! Make sure you are able to see clearly, because we don’t want any unnecessary surprises from the Hippogriffs above us. After Mr. Weasley counts to three, we concentrate hard and Apparate together.”

Ron mumbled grumpily but went to gather his things. “Amos? Are you ready for us?” said Charlie who was busy assembling an enormous wooden contraption. “It’s a Have-a-Heart Hippogriff Trap,” he explained. “I made it, inspired by the Trojans. We are going to attempt to Apparate inside it, so they won’t notice. Anyway, we have only a few minutes to Apparate, so be quick!”

Without further delay, everyone quietly huddled together and on the count of three, they all turned and Disapparated. Ron, however, had forgotten the three D’s and ended up with no hair.

“Ron, my poor baby,” Mrs. Weasley crooned, as Ron started to cry.

“He’s faking, Mum,” announced Ginny crossly. “He’s always hated red hair, that’s why he ‘forgot’ the third D! He always finds ways to lose his hair or eyebrows!”

“Molly, we can’t worry about it right now. We have to think about the Hippogriffs! Come on, hurry up, you guys,” said Bill. “And girls, be careful. The Hippogriffs are very old and grouchy, they are quick to snap first at females because of the rare attraction they have to flowery scents. Especially you, Ginny.”

“You should have told us before we volunteered to help with this,” said Ginny. “Hermione’s hoodie is so pink and she smells of Ron’s aftershave, not exactly –”

“Hey!” Ron cut in. “My aftershave is not flowery!”

But Amos Diggory interrupted them. Clearing his throat, he said loudly, “It’s time. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is on his way here right now for some tea. Make sure the cookies are fresh, we don’t want him to be scared off by stale pasty!”

Ron and Hermione looked at each other and giggled. “Dearest Mother,” said Ron, “We think you should know that, in disguise, You-Know-Who is actually Professor Trelawney, but please keep very quiet about that, because Voldemort doesn’t usually just come to tea leaf readings or anything. But he loves them in these Have-a-Heart Hippogriff things!”

“Well, if you say so. Oh, he must be here already. Everyone, quick, make sure the teapots are ready and the tea is hot. We need to act fast and look presentable. You all know how picky they are about that. If we don’t make it correctly, we are all doomed to suffer the fate Teapotitus! Our arms will fold up like concertinas,” said Bill, who was smoothing out the creases in Fleur’s face. Harry screamed at the sight of her eyes disappearing into her sockets, and her mouth suddenly became a thin line of some ugly brownish color. She let out a huge protest at the indignity while Bill tried countercurse after countercurse. “Get away, frown lines!” He turned his wand around and pointed it toward the door, where a strange black mist had congealed.

“RUN!” cried Hermione, “The Hippogriffs are starting to summon their Dementor friends! Find a way to the exit, quick! If no, we will be in serious trouble. The Hippogriffs are actually Ministry experiments; they were bred for special tasks like this one which to capture all non-Ministry supporters and to get what they want, which is us! So, let’s fight them and make them leave!”

She pulled out her wand and tried to cast a Patronus. Harry stepped forward and said, “You can’t do it like that, Hermione. You, you must flick the wand and think of a happy thought, and there isn’t any chocolate here, so be careful!” He tried to help her, but the kneazles kept getting in the way.

Mrs. Weasley rushed forward with a knitting needle and tried to make the kneazles jump into the air to block the Dementors. When nothing happened, she asked for some help. Before anyone could point out that she was using a knitting needle, the black mist was floating in front of them!

Harry raised his wand, but right at that instant Percy jumped out from behind and started to talk about cauldron thickness. “What people fail to see is that these dangerous foreign cauldrons are ruining our potions, and that’s because our potions are designed for real cauldrons. I mean, really, who would want to be such rubbish?”

“Hey,” interrupted Ron, “we are in the middle of something important.”

Just as he leaned over towards Hermione a hex narrowly missed him, and Percy screamed, “Listen to me! Our cauldrons are just as important as… whatever you people are up to here!”

“You don’t even know what that is!” screamed Hermione as she got rid of a Jelly-Legs Hex. She raised her wand and yelled with threatening tones: “No, Percy, you won’t stop us! I know what you are trying to do!”

“The Dementors are working with you in order to distract us,” exclaimed Harry.

He aimed a hex at Percy, but Mrs. Weasley jumped in front of him screaming, “That’s not Percy!”

“Well, we know that part,” said Harry dryly, waving his wand in the air.

“Hey guys!” said Luna who suddenly appeared behind Percy, “I know I’m supposed to come later, but I didn’t want to miss all the party, because I have heard that Percy is actually the nefarious leader of the Crumple-Horned Snorkacks, who to join forces with a tribe such as that requires a certain type of wizard such as he.”

“Wow, Luna! I didn’t know you could Apparate?” said a shocked Ron, entirely ignoring her lengthy greeting.

“Well,” she explained, “I decided to learn when you said you were having tea. I simply adore tea.”

Suddenly, the Dementors behind Luna began to lunge for teacups. “Hey!” exclaimed Harry. “Those aren’t real teacups. They’re from Fred and George, you thieves! Expecto Pastrami!” Sandwiches pelted the Dementors.

“This is all your fault!” screamed Mr. Weasley.

“Now we have stinky pastrami sandwiches everywhere! Why weren’t you a bit more careful?” cried Luna as she angrily shoved the sandwiches into the Dementors’ hands, and Ginny and Hermione did exactly as Luna had done, only they threw their sandwiches at the door.

“Poor Voldemort! He will miss all the sandwiches!”

Please note that the statistics on this story may be slightly altered considering my computer froze as I was taking the 110 posts that I missed while absent. I think I started recounting from where the computer had reset them, but things may be slightly off. In any event, we definitely managed over 1000 words!
