Word Count: 100



De-gnoming the garden as a spectator sport


Bend. Grab. Toss.

Harry watched, transfixed, as the muscles in Ron’s back bunched and rippled in the afternoon sun.

Bend.

Eyes not leaving the lovely backside, Harry gulped the rest of his pumpkin juice.

Grab.

A bead of sweat fell from Ron’s hair, meandering between the furrows in his back until it disappeared beneath the waistband of his denims.

Toss.

Yet another gnome went sailing into the forest.

Bend.

When his physical activity had been restricted, Harry'd been sorely disappointed.

Grab.

Sitting on the sidelines had its perks, however.

Toss.

He wondered if he could break his leg again tomorrow.

Title: Stocking Stuffer
Warnings: umm... cuteness?

The Christmas decoration were glaringly bright on the mantle at their apartment as they snuggled on the hearth. Ron leaned in to gently kiss Hermione when he suddenly saw stars bursting forth behind his eye lids as something heavy crashed into his head. When he could see straight again he picked it up.

He stared in horror at the grotesque muggle lump of lead. He looked up at Hermione in total disbelief. Her beaming face fell as she realized her mistake. She tried to retrieve the stocking holder.

"How could you!" accused Ron.

"But I thought you would find it cute. It's just a garden gnome stocking holder." Hermione defended.

"Yeah but why a garden gnome? The one's in mum's garden always hated me..." Ron whined.

Hermione spent the rest of the night kissing it better.

Title : Ron's Fingers
Warnings : Gnome’s POV

Gnigel wants to bite someone.

Those nasty matching Gingers would be a good place to start, with their sniggering and their fairy costume and their wings.

And they’ve left us without drawers and with our arse hanging out.

And now the other Ginger, the really tall one, has picked us up, and stood on a chair, and his fingers have slipped under our skirt, and his thumb is pressed against our cock, and why would he be pulling our arse cheeks apart?

And why do his fingers feel so good?

And why is he wedging a tree up our arse?

oh *shriekhurrah* for gnigel!

Fred and George glance at one another, and then shake their heads at him sadly. "Sorry, Ronnie," says Fred.

"Mum gave us the best job. It wouldn't be right to trade," George adds.

Ron scowls and tries again. "But you alwayth get to do gnomes!"

"We're bigger! More responsible! Harder workers! Besides. We only got big enough last year!"

"I c'n do it!"

"What do you think, Fred"

"Maybe we should let 'im try it?"

They shrug "All right. We'll look after Mum's knitting, and you can de-gnome."

Ron beams and goes outside, missing the high-five the twins shared entirely.

Title: Alone
Team: Gen

He is all alone in the garden. From here he can see the light from the house and happy voices float out to him through the warm summer air. But they can’t see him. Or they could if they wanted to, but he knows that they only pretend that he is still there and that everything is okay. That it wasn’t his fault. He knows that they don’t like him anymore and that they are only revived when he isn’t there. That’s way he would rather be here out in the gardens with only the gnomes to keep him company.

Perfect start for a Monday at work!

"This one looks like you," Ginny said cheerfully, as she chucked another gnome. Ron grunted, narrowing his eyes as he watched the gnome go whizzing by.

"Looked more like Charlie to me."

Ginny giggled and Ron met her gaze, flushing and grinning. Her t-shirt was sticking to her a bit with sweat, and Ron couldn't help but glance at the way it was starting to fit her. Ginny had... well... curves. Like a proper girl.

"What's the matter Ron?" she asked, swiping a hand across her forehead and frowning at him. "Did you want to keep that one?"

Ron glanced down, finding a garden gnome securely attached to his thumb. He yelled as he swung his arm, watching it sail across the garden and blushing in embarrassment and pain.

"Didn't even hurt," he mumbled as he went back to his de-gnoming. Ginny laughed, and Ron tried not to watch as she twisted around to grab another gnome.

This would be a long summer.

Title : Silver Lining

When I was seven, degnoming the garden was brilliant. One of those clever games invented by parents to get their kids to do chores. I loved the challenge of it, the confidence that came with sussing out a new strategy for trapping them.

When I was twelve, degnoming sucked. They bit and kicked and there were about a thousand other things I’d rather have been doing.

Now, I’m seventeen. And the wedding is in a week, and once again we’re all out here looking fore the little bastards. This time, though, Hermione is here, wearing cutoff Muggle jeans and a little top that shows off quite a bit more than she realises, and she’s sweaty and just a little dirty.

And about twelve inches away from me.

Degnoming the garden is brilliant again.

Title: Plebeians
Warnings: None, PG
Word Count: 100

Draco watched, horrified, as garden gnomes—garden gnomes!—were spun and tossed out of the Burrow’s back garden. Laughter floated up to his bedroom window (Percy’s old room, apparently) as his eyes traveled across the group of sweating, dirty teenagers, landing on the tallest of them all. Ron...

He pinched his arm and cursed himself. To fall in love with someone so... so plebian!

*********

Ron looked up at Percy’s old bedroom window. It rather felt like someone was watching him...

“Oy, Ron!” Harry shouted. But the warning came too late—a grimy gnome hit him square in the chest.

He could practically feel the eyes on him as he worked. But no matter how many times he turned around, Percy was still hunched studiously over his latest report.

"You know, it wouldn't kill you to actually help, Perce."

A slightly disinterested grunt was his only response.

Ron sighed and tossed another gnome over the garden wall, wondering why there wasn't a more effective way to prevent them from coming back.

...

As he walked in to fetch them both a glass of lemonade, Percy marveled that Ron had somehow failed to notice that he hadn't even brought a quill outside.

Title: One Fell Swoop
Author: star54kar
Team: Het
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, Angst, Reference to Death


The only survivors of the horrific devastation were a couple of muggle garden gnomes. Ron stood in the midst of the ashes of what used to be Hermione’s childhood home desperately trying to console his hysterical girlfriend. Ron didn’t know what to say. What could he say when she lost her entire family and her home in one fell swoop? So he said nothing. Instead he held Hermione tightly to his chest, letting her tears saturate his robes and caught her when knees buckled from her uncontrollable sobs. He ran his fingers through her hair, kissed the top of her head, and let his love for her support her through her grief.

Title: Never Trust the Twins

Rating/Warnings: G, None



Ron was annoyed. Harry had promised to go flying with him, and Ron couldn’t find him anywhere. He flopped down at the table frustrated and a moment later was caught being idle by his mother. Cursing Harry up and down Ron stomped outside to de-gnome.

He found a couple of garden gnomes and tossed them over the hedge. Then as he snatched up the next one it yelled, “Wait Ron, no!”

Startled, Ron stared at the ugly leathery creature and noticed a tiny lighting bolt scar on its forehead. Ron burst out laughing as Harry the Garden Gnome sat disgruntled in his palm.

“Oh Harry, I told you not to eat that box of chocolates from Fred and George.”
