The Eve of the Feast (a JMDC response)


‘It happens,’ said Harry, between his teeth, ‘to be the anniversary of my parents’ murders.’

‘And a commercialised, American, Muggle bastardising of, at once, Wizarding traditions and the Feast of All Saints,’ snapped Draco.

‘But … but there are costumes. And sweets. Rhubarb and custard pips. Ice pigs. Liquorice torpedoes, white chocolate thickies, gems, jelly raspberries, strawberry whirls, Pontefract cakes, Parma violets, Chelsea whoppers, pear drops, Blackpool rock –’

‘Curly Wurlys – Curly Wurlys, mind you! TurkishDelightWhispaBarsBlackJacksBlackcurrantFizzySherbetsSpaceDust –’

‘Yes,’ said Draco, repressively. ‘Ladling out treats for all the little Witches and Wizards in absurd ghost costumes or dressed – poorly – as those filthy vampires. Making mock of every tradition –’

‘Sweets! Sweets! Do you really not grasp the point –’

‘Think of it! Chocolate oranges, jelly bones, ginger boiled sweets –’

‘Nougat, Highland toffee, Monkey Bars, ice cups, Wham Bars –’

‘Greed; the two of you running about on sugar highs; the two of you sicking up from greed and sugar – do you think we’re mad?’ Harry was stern.

‘I promise we won’t!’

‘You won’t regret it – we’ll behave ourselves.’

Harry and Draco exchanged a glance. So long as they were left out of it….

‘Oh, damn it all, all right,’ said Draco.

‘Do not make me regret this,’ said Harry. ‘I’ll tolerate it – this once – if only to have some buggering peace. But if this goes as utterly and thoroughly tits-up as I fear it shall do, it’ll be the very last time….’

Their interlocutors, their wheedling and begging having prevailed, beamed at them with improbable innocence.

‘You won’t regret it, I promise, mate.’

As Harry and Draco caught Hermione’s eye, and looked back, sourly, at a triumphant Teddy and Ron – already visibly eager to go and bring the glad news to Hugo, Rose, Jamie, Al, Lily, and Scorp – they made quite certain they already did.

You old softie! This is perfectly delicious in every way!I would be very hard-pressed to name so many American sweets. This is clearly one after your heart!

I'm not so much interested in sweets -

- as in tradition. You want to visit http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/.

And, as ever, thank you.

Still isn't, although it's sadly becoming so.

But the prompt was the prompt.

Thank you.

I knew it was Ron and Teddy! I knew it! Because.....who else, really. :D

I want a chocolate orange in the worst way.

I did wonder:

How many shd guess, and at what point.

Thank you for liking it. If you ARE going to buy sweets, I could do w a Fry's Peppermint Cream myself. A little of what you fancy does you good.

You're the winner!!!

Drawing was held about 5 minutes ago, and your name came out of the basket.

:D

Please leave me a prompt on the post, or you can reply to me here.

I'm mostly an H/D writer. I'll tackle other HP pairings, but I won't put Harry or Draco with anyone else. *clings tenaciously to OTP* I'm also willing to try other fandoms, but you never know what you'll get with those. Oh, and I do silly stick!art by request, too.
