2. Aim for 100 words exactly (but no one's counting)
3. Put each drabble in a separate comment to this entry with appropriate headers

Your header should look like this:
Team [Het/Slash/Gen], [Title], [warnings]

You can write as many drabbles as you want for as many different teams as you want.

Title: Crib Notes
Team: Gen
Words: 100
Prompt: teaching

"Hi." Ron had expected to be alone and away from the preparatory chaos back here.

Juliette looked up, tears in her eyes. "Oh!"

"Oi, what's wrong?" Ron didn't know much about kids, but he liked his nieces and nephews, and Juliette was his favorite.

"What if I forget the words?" she said, lip quivering. "I don't want to ruin the wedding!"

Ron nodded solemnly. "I'm not very good with speeches either. Mine's written on my hand. Just in case." He turned his hand toward her. "But it's charmed for just me to see."

She blinked. "Can you teach me--"

Very cute.

I have no doubt that Ron'll be great with nieces/nephews.

Title: The Look on Her Face
Team: Het
Rating: PG-13

The thing about living with Hermione was that Ron was forced into learning something new nearly every day.
Sometimes that learning was preempted with an expressive eye-roll, sometimes with a snort of laughter or, rarely, a very gentle sort of patience.
He almost preferred the eye-rolling. When Hermione was patient he felt like a child.
Occasionally though, he got to be the teacher. All the ins and outs of the Wizarding World couldn’t be learned through books, and he loved the look she would get when he surprised her.
He loved surprising her. There were a few…things…Ron Weasley really enjoyed teaching Hermione Granger.

Thank you!

Naturally Ron would apply his stragetizing talents here!

(I like your rating system, btw).

Title: A Simple Twist
Team: Gen
Rating: PG

“Show me again, Ron.” Hermione asked, leaning closer. Grinning, Ron picked up his wand and deftly twirled it around his fingers in a deceptively simple but intricate-looking pattern.
“Try it again, okay? And remember, it has to pass your ring finger first…” Harry and Hermione obediently placed their wands carefully in their fingers and, with identical looks of concentration, attempted the simple twist Ron had been trying to teach them all evening.
Harry’s landed with a clatter on the rock floor behind him, and Hermione’s sailed gracefully over Ron’s head. He caught it lazily and handed it back, suppressing a laugh. He remembered the countless times they had tried in vain to teach him something.
But it was still funny.

Well, it's about time for Ron to have a turn teaching!

Title: Promotion
Author: tajareyul
Team: Gen
Rating/Warnings: G/None
Prompt: teaching
Word Count: 100
A/N: For any non-chess players, when a pawn makes it all the way to the opposing back row, it is promoted, or exchanged for another, higher ranking, more powerful piece (such as a knight).

“Checkmate in five moves, Dad.”

Arthur frowned at the board. To his surprise, he realised Ron was correct. Hadn't it been just a little bit since his youngest son needed reminding how the knights moved? He pushed up his spectacles and looked Ron over again. Shooting up like a weed, lost most of his puppy fat...Good Lord, he'd be going off to Hogwarts next September.

“And how did you become such an expert, Ron?”

The young master grinned. That was the first time his father hadn't called him by the diminutive 'Ronnie'.

“Bill's been teaching me by owl post.”

How lovely is that?

Wonderful father & son dynamic.

Title - Never
Warnings - None


Ron holds the broom in his bunched and gnarled hands.

‘Hold it like this, see?’

The little boy takes it hesitantly, trying to mimic Ron’s hand position. ‘Like this, Great-Granddad?’

Ron adjusts the boy’s grip a fraction. ‘Just like that. You ready to mount it?’

The little boy nods his flaming red head.

Ron lifts his great-grandson and places him astride the broom, holding him lightly until he steadies himself.

Finally secure, the boy looks back at Ron.

‘I’m scared, Great-Granddad. What if I fall?’ He bites his lip.

Ron grins. ‘Nonsense. You won’t fall. You’re a Weasley, aren’t you? Weasleys never fall.’

7th-Feb-2007 05:58 am (UTC)
So sweet.

I love this:
Ron grins. ‘Nonsense. You won’t fall. You’re a Weasley, aren’t you? Weasleys never fall.’

Title: Why Freedom Isn't Like Riding a Bike.
Warnings: AU, slavery

Ron stared in amazement as the black band encircling his wrist, the same black band that screamed to the entire universe that he didn't belong to himself, fell to the ground.

"You're free, Weasley." His master...no, NOT his master, spoke the words in the same droll tones he used for everyday speech. Ron wondered why he had expected something different.

"I don't remember how." There, his first sentence in ten years without a title at the end of it. No wonder it felt so odd.

"I can teach you." Surprisingly warm lips descended upon his own, a moist flick of the tounge, and it was over. It didn't seem in the least bit familiar.

Very interesting.

I find the psychological ramifications of a slavery-type situation (and the subsequent after-effects) to be very fascinating - nice job here.
8th-Feb-2007 03:26 am (UTC)
I feel a longer story here. Very nice. So, I guess I find one of my kinks to be a broken Ron, who gets taken care for, instead of him always taking care of the-boy-who-lived.

Very nice. Are you just going to leave it to my imagination to figure out who this is...I have none you know...lol.
8th-Feb-2007 03:53 am (UTC)
I was actually thinking Draco. I suppose it could be any male you wanted it to be though. The longer story that you sensed, err, kind of exists, only the roles are reversed. And that's kind of the ending...I think.


Ps. By the way, I really love your work, I was pleasantly surprised to find you had complimented mine.

I suppose it could be any male you wanted it to be though.

No, it can only be Draco. I won't let it be anybody else. :p

This is wonderful, by the way. I know that it's a drabble for the Triatha_Ron, but have you thought about expanding on this? I'd love to read more.

Title: Lessons in daily maintenance
Team: Slash
A/N: also for harryron100 prompt: Why?

Lessons in daily maintenance



Ron blinked, breaking out of his trance; it wouldn’t do to let Harry catch him staring. But bloody hell, that was hypnotizing…



He blushed, readjusting himself – things were getting crowded below – and tried to focus on his own work.

It was no use. Out of the corner of his eye, he could still see Harry’s hand, moving up and down, smoothly…



He was beginning to drool. Wiping his lip, he glanced around to see if anyone… Bugger. Hermione had that look.

Why, in Merlin’s name, did he teach Harry how to polish a broom?

LOL:D I'm very impressed how you managed to work two prompts from two different challenges into one little drabble.

Hermione had that look.

Title: The History He Lived
Author: star54kar
Team: Gen
Rating/Warnings: PG, mention of character death.

When Ron took the position of teaching History of Magic for fifth years and above, his class quickly became the favorite of all Hogwarts students. Of course all of the children grew up hearing the legendary tale of the Great Harry Potter and how he saved them all.

But Ron taught them all about what wasn’t in the books: about the boy who lived in a cupboard, and the man he turned out to be. Ron told his story. He shared his memories in a pensleve with the younger generations, to let them experience the history he lived.

In seventh year he would take his class to the gravesite so they would have a chance to remember, not Harry Potter…just Harry.
7th-Feb-2007 08:06 pm (UTC)
Oh, how sad.

And how lovely - this is a wonderful idea...if a bit crappy since Harry's dead.
15th-Feb-2007 04:18 am (UTC)
:hands you a tissue:

I hate the idea of a dead Harry too, but I was thinking, 'how would Ron go on if he survived and Harry didn't'. This drabble resulted.

I'm glad you liked it:D
