HP Drabble – Specialties

by on May.10, 2008, under Uncategorized

As requested by vincentursus…upon rereading his idea I think I may have misinterpreted it. However, this story came to mind and I wrote it. If he’s unsatisfied I’ll just have to write another (in my copious spare time). 😉


“What’s your specialty, Harry?” Ron said suddenly.

“Hmmm?” Harry continued wafting the feather overhead.

“I was just thinking,” Ron continued. “Lots of people have specialties, like Neville’s with Herbology.”

“Flying, I suppose,” Harry replied. “Or Charms.” The feather burst into bits and rained down upon them.

“Ron’s good at Charms,” Hermione said, brushing off dust.

“I what?” Ron stared.

“Well, your father’s car, and your brothers’ Wizard Wheezes. It’s in your blood.”

“You’re good at creating things, Hermione,” Harry said. “Like those flames.”

“I never was good at creating stuff,” Ron griped.

Hermione smirked. “Of course not, you’re a boy.”

    Nifty. ^_^

    More character driven than I was thinking, though that’s not really a complaint.

    *grins* Well, they’re such strongly developed characters, they’re easy to write. I bet you were expecting some sort of exploration of ideas about magic, hm? Well, I stuck one or two in there, the bit about the Weasleys and magical items is something that’s been knocking about in my head for a while. 😉

    The Weasleys’ ability to create magic items is one of those things that I’ve seen some fan fic authors run with.
