A Ron Ficathon where Everyone's a Winner!
drabble prompt #11 
21st-Feb-2007 09:43 pm

Drabble Rules Refresher

1. Drabbles should be Ron-centric
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.

This post will close to drabbles Sunday. This is the last drabble prompt before the fics are posted!

Prompt #11: Since March 1 is both the start date of our main fest and Ron's birthday, that's our prompt - birthday! It doesn't have to be Ron's that you write about - it could be Ron celebrating someone else's birthday as long as, per usual, Ron is the central character.

Writing for this prompt is now closed. Please vote for these drabbles over at the voting post.

Title : Happy Marry Me
Team : Het or Slash
Author : vampyreangel
Warnings : none

Ron looked at the small box in his hand. It wasn't good enough but it was all he had to offer. He took a deep breath and stepped in to the party. His heart caught in his throat. So... so... breath taking! Those eyes... that hair... just so... so... Ron stood in awe the box feeling tinier and tinier by the minute. He felt worthless. He knew the box was worthless. He turned to go.


He froze in his tracks. He felt like a million pounds. Suddenly the engagement ring was the best ever. He turned back to follow through with his plans to propose at this birthday party.

And I don't think this is crap at all - I think it would be very like Ron to be so full of self-doubt about the his worth, and of his gift. Spot on!

Title : Birthday

Pairing : Harry/Ron or Ron/Hermione

Just look at him, laying there, his hair limp, his freckles scattered over parchment pale skin.

He is so beautiful.

He could have died.

I’d never really had a friend before I met him – the kids at primary school were so mean to someone who was a bit strange – and I never expected to have such a vibrant person in my life.

He has more love of life in his little finger than anyone else in their entire body, and he woke up on his seventeenth birthday and nearly died.

Not knowing how I feel about him.

The selfish bastard.

I loved how easily I can see these words apply to both Harry and Hermione. Great job:)

btw: I love your icon:D

Uh, I don't know if this is legitimate, given that I'm one of the official Team Slash writers (and have already submitted my contribution), but I thought of this when I woke, so I thought I'd share anyway. If it's not allowed, just delete, no hard feelings. And sorry for reposting, but, duh, I forgot my name the first time around. :P

Title: Giving Back
Author: Plumeria/aome

Ginny watched Ron bustle awkwardly around the kitchen, in pale imitation of Molly's sure-handed grace. "I don't get why you're making her a cake," she said. "It's not like she..."

"I know," Ron cut her off. "But she always made me one, even when we had nothing, so now it's my turn." He finished the icing and looked down at the lopsided result. "My oven's heating charms aren't as good as the Burrow's," he said defensively. Then, before his sister could make any more smart retorts, he gathered up the cake and Disapparated.

He carried his prize gently over the lawn and set it down in front of her headstone. "Happy birthday, Mum," he said softly.

I apologise for not including a 'character death' warning at the top, but that kind of ruins the drabble to give advanced notice. Not sure how to handle that.

You're good - drabblers don't have to adhere to teams. And don't worry about warnings, either. Drabbles are a worry-free space!
23rd-Feb-2007 08:34 am (UTC) - Team Gen, By Proxy, a little angst
By Proxy

Giggles filled the air as fireworks popped and exploded; brightly colored unicorns and dragons sparkled in the sky.

Ron hugged his niece, resting his chin on black curls.

That afternoon, he’d taken her to Ollivander’s for her very own wand: Phoenix feather and Ash.

Ron smiled at the memory. He knew Harry would’ve burst with pride, seeing his little girl’s face light up at the wonder of magic.

But nine years ago, when Harry had won the war, he’d lost his life.

He squeezed the girl in his arms a bit tighter; Lillian Elizabeth Potter was eleven years old today.

That's lovely.

Title: They've Always Been Your Team

"Close your eyes."


"Just do it."

Ron obliged and Harry stepped close, wrapping his arms around him tightly. Warm lips pressed firmly against his and Ron yielded to Harry's tender kiss as the sensation of Apperation overtook them both.

Ron sighed into Harry's mouth as they arrived at their mysterious destination.

"Happy Birthday, Ron," Harry whispered softly. "Open your eyes."

Ron did, stepping back to take in the scene and gasped. They were standing in the Chudley Cannon's private owner's box!

"They've always been your team Ron," Harry said, his eyes shining, "and now they really are."

Wow! Way to go Harry!

(sounds like they'll both have a happy birthday tonight!)

Title: I'll Never Leave You Again
Author: star54kar
Team: Het
Rating/Warnings: PG, Reference to a Near Death Experience

It was just an ordinary day, Hermione thought to herself for the millionth time. Birthday or no birthday, she refused to speak with him! She refused to think of him! Today was no different.

But it was. He could have died! The shocking truth hit her like a bludger and Hermione's blood ran cold.

"Er-my-nee," his feeble voice echoed in her ears, as he called out to her in his fevered dreams.

Ron called for her! Not for Lavender. Not even for Harry, and Hermione nearly cried. Lingering until every one else left the room, she gently ran her fingers through his hair. Pressing a kiss to his sweaty forehead she promised.

"I'll never leave you again."

Percy always put a great deal of thought into his gifts. Unlike the twins who gathered presents on a whim, Percy enjoyed taking the time to plan.

He always made his most careful selections for Ron. His youngest brother always held a special place in Percy's heart, and he tood great delight in selecting presents to make Ron's face illuminate with a smile. Percy lived for those smiles.

He wrapped Ron's precious package carefully in brightly colored paper, and came down to breakfast.

"Happy Birthday, Ron!" Percy said brightly, and settled back to watch as Ron opened up his new chess set.

Ron gave a shout of glee and was positively glowing in his excitement.

Percy merely smiled.

Title: A World of Peas
Author: tajareyul
Prompt: birthday
Team: Gen
Rating/Warnings: All (G)/None
Word Count: 261
Author's Notes: I tried my best, but I couldn't squish this into 100 words. Inspired by a bumper sticker and the fact that Molly's birthday is October 30th.

“Ron, could you come here a moment?”

Ron had been hoping to avoid his mother “Anything wrong, Mum?” he asked carefully. He was afraid she would somehow divine that he, Harry and Hermione were leaving in the morning.

She held a ragged and yellowed scrap of parchment in her hand. “I just want to have a little chat.”

“This isn't my snidget-and-billywig talk, is it? 'Cause Charlie—”

“No, this isn't about that. Although, perhaps your father—no? Well, do you remember this?” She held out the parchment.

Ron took it. Dried peas were Spellotaped across the top. The childish scrawl underneath wished a 'Happy Birthday to Mummy'.

His ears burned. “Aw, Mum. I can't believe you saved this. I was so stupid.”

“It was adorable. Someday when you have children, you'll understand. You must have overheard me saying the best birthday present I ever received was a world of peace for my children--”

“And I thought you said peas. It didn't make any sense, but grownups said a lot of things that didn't make sense to me when I was five.”

“Every time I got another owl about one of your 'adventures' with Harry, I'd take this out and think, 'That's my Ronnie, giving me a world of peas.'”


“I don't know if I've told you how very proud I am of you. You've grown into the sort of young man your father and I always hoped you'd be.” She pulled him into a tight and, given that he was a good foot taller than her, awkward hug.

Awe, you made me cry.

“Every time I got another owl about one of your 'adventures' with Harry, I'd take this out and think, 'That's my Ronnie, giving me a world of peas.'”

This is so sweet, wonderful, and touching:) Excellent job!
