Thank you all so much. It made my week.

I'm behind as usual and came too late to reciprocate - can I offer drabbles instead? Leave a prompt/pairing and I'll see what I can do. (though there might be some delay in answering)

I didnt send you a snowflake, because I am lazy. Still I think you should write me a SS/LL drabble. A funny one.

We must be soulmates then :)

"Your nose is shaped like a Nargle's bottom, did you know that?"

He knew it had been a mistake to attend this conference. A good knowledge of magical zoology was vital in potion-making, but was it really worth being harassed by guest speakers who also happened to be ex-students?

"I've always had a secret passion for Nargles, you know."

Make that batty ex-students.

"It's not so much their -considerable- intellect as their sex appeal. Nargles shake their bottoms to signal interest in a potential partner, you know. A bit like you when you sniff in disdain. As long as one considers your nose is an acceptable substitute for a Nargle's bottom, of course."

He blinked.

She leaned forward, and he couldn't help glancing down to her décolletage.

Which gave her a very good view of his lowered nasal appendage.

"I do - consider your nose an acceptable substitute for a Nargle's bottom, that is."

He blinked again as a key somehow found its way into his palm.

"Room 69, after the keynote address. Don't be late."

He didn't bother blinking this time, and merely stared at her definitely un-Nargle-like bottom as she walked away.

All he could think of was that this conference wouldn't have been a complete waste of time after all.

I am completely tickled by the 15 seconds it took Snape to go from annoyed to interested! Nargle bottoms or not Severus is going to get laid. Woot!

Thank you!

Thanks for unlocking it; that was very cute! I also was amused by how quickly he went from annoyed to intrigued.

Snape may just come to appreciate his nose after this. Especially if it can attract sweet young things like Luna! She may be batty, but she's going to make this conference worthwhile. Go, Luna!

I did manage to get a snowflake to you before we broke LJ! I'd love a Malfoy family moment during the holidays.

"Bang!" went the Xmas cracker.

"AAAAAAAAAh!" went the screaming infant on the lap of a somewhat subdued Lucius.

"He'd better got over this fear of loud noises if he wants to get into Slytherin someday," grumbled the (still young) grandfather.

"Perhaps it's the company that has him screaming, not the noise," Draco snidely commented as picked the wailing fruit of his loins and patted it expertly in the back.

Lucius sneered, hoping the veneer of contempt would be enough to cover his inner insecurity. It was bad enough to become a grandfather at the obscenely young age of 58, if Draco insisted on uncovering each and every one of his parental failings on the way, Scorpius's childhood threatened to be one long vale of gnashed teeth and bitter repartees.

"Don't worry," Narcissa whispered to him as she slipped a hand deftly along his thighs, under the thick festive tablecloth. "He's too small to appreciate you - but I'm not..."

The sneer melted into a smile. Playing footsie under the dinner table was another fine Malfoy tradition, albeit one that the younger generations had yet to discover, and it meant one good evening of one-to-one entertainment was soon to follow.

"If you're quite done coaxing a non-existant burp out of my grandson," he instructed Draco in a firmer voice, "you can hand him back to me. We were having a good time before you interrupted."

Draco lifted his eyebrows, all scepticism, but the sight of his wife and pudding, whose twin company childcare was currently depriving him of, were enough to have him conclude that, for all his numerous failings, his father did have some good qualities.

"Let's leave the other Xmas crackers for later," Astoria concluded as Scorpius found his way back to his original seat.

Ooooh, goody! I've been sick for most of the week and am only now catching up on my email notifications. Thank you so much for brightening my day!

What a perfect holiday moment at the Manor! Lucius certainly looks much too young to be a grandfather. Why, he's still playing footsies with his wife, for goodness sake. How could a man like that possibly be old enough to have a grandchild?! Looks like little Scorpius has a new year full of spoiling to look forward to from his gorgeous grandpapa.

I don't know about too young, but he's certainly far too immature!
