Welcome to my newest series of drabbles! I will be updating with a new drabble daily for at least the next six weeks or so. I hope you enjoy my stories, and, before I forget - yet again - I do not own, nor am I affiliated with anyone who owns, the setting, character, or world of Harry Potter, all of which belong chiefly to J. K. Rowling. This is a fanwork which I create for the pleasure of myself and others and which generates no profit for myself or anyone else.
