Summary: A special visitor to Professor Slughorn's Potions class provides Harry and his friends with an unorthodox assignment.
Notes: This story was written solely because of a story title given to me by a friend during a writing challenge in March 2004. It took more than a year for me to come up with an appropriate response -- if this response can be considered 'appropriate'. Set during Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Originally written on 22 April 2007 for [livejournal.com profile] polkadotsquared in [livejournal.com profile] mctabby's Cat's Birthday HP Drabblethon IV, based on the prompt A giant mandrake takes over the trio's 7th year herbology lesson.


Harry had never seen Professor Sprout move so fast. The bottle of Porphyria Pennyroyal's Premiere Plant-Gro Potion barely had time to shatter before she had her wand out, casting a Silencing Charm so strong that Harry's ears popped with the force of it.

'Out!' He couldn't hear Sprout's voice, not with the charm in place, but there was no doubt as to what she was saying as she pointed to the greenhouse door. 'Out NOW!'

Hermione was already grabbing his jumper and pulling him towards the door. There was real fear in her eyes. Harry tried to resist, to turn round to help Professor Sprout, but the moment he looked over his shoulder and caught sight of what Hermione was looking at, all thoughts of staying behind and being a hero vanished from his mind.

If a baby mandrake's cry could knock someone out, and a grown mandrake's cry was instantly fatal, Harry didn't want to sit around and contemplate what would happen if anyone heard the noise made by a half-grown mandrake that had swelled to three times its normal size and seemed to be getting bigger by the second.

An untitled crossover drabbble, written on 16 July 2005. Something of a response to both May 2005 General Election and the opening chapters of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, in which the Muggle Prime Minister makes a brief appearance. (You can't tell me that as Cabinet Secretary, Sir Humphrey wouldn't know all about the wizarding world....)


'Humphrey, what's the meaning of this?'

A long-suffering sigh, quickly suppressed. 'The meaning of what, Prime Minister?'

'Look.' Hacker all but flung a thick folder across the Cabinet table, forcing Bernard to dive after it to keep the papers within from flying every which way. 'I've had the figures checked and rechecked, grilled anyone remotely responsible for resource allocation, and somehow no-one in this entire Government can account for this budget discrepancy of nearly ten million pounds!'

'Not pounds, Prime Minister.'

Hacker blinked. '...what?'

'Not pounds, Prime Minister.' The Cabinet Secretary's smile could have been painted by da Vinci. 'Galleons.'

Summary: Oxford, 1941: A likely meeting in an unlikely place.
Notes: Originally written for [personal profile] agonistes, who requested a meeting between Merriman Lyon and Albus Dumbledore -- 'preferably silly', as she said. I attempted to write silly, but did not exactly succeed...yet I rather like how it turned out.
