Today (Saturday) is Draco Malfoy's 30th birthday!

To celebrate, there are zillions of Draco stories, illustrated with fan artwork, over at dracobigbang, including one by me, called Draco Malfoy and the Face of Death because Tom Felton has said he keeps hoping that JKR will write an eighth book called Draco Malfoy and the something of something. It's illustrated by zohra1. I illustrated a Drarry (!) story, called Stormy Horizons, by dirty_darella, though I didn't quite get a likeness, LOL.

In other news, I appear to have Alzheimer's -- I've just had to Google 'eighth' to work out how to spell it. (Since my Grandma had Alzheimer's, and I've been making some really stupid mistakes recently, it is a genuine worry. My alternative theory is that once a body reaches critical mass, the brain's just too flabby to think straight...)

These are wondrous. Now I'm inspired to make some for myself... for all my fandoms. *L* Something to do in between times.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you! We did them over 6 challenges, and everybody seemed to get really inspired, even the ones who didn't finish a complete alphabet.

Gosh, it had never occurred to me that the HP main characters left school before the end of the last century...

My Dad had died with Alzheimers before he was my age - but I put my inability to remember simple words, or the name of the person I am talking to, down to my hormones - or lack thereof. The alternative doesn't bear thinking about.

(PS - my favourite is the Grumpy Legolas, I think.)

LOL. When I told my brother that the action took place in the late 90's, he said, "So why did they have a Ford Anglia?"

My Dad had died with Alzheimers before he was my age

That's very young. I secretly hope that my problems are depression, but they've got worse recently -- the other day I found myself standing at the top of the stairs with part of my brain saying, "That's the step to aim for," and the other part saying, "Don't be stupid, that's the next step but one..."

That's a brilliant expression on Grumpy Legolas, isn't it?

What a novel idea! I like this alphabet! :)

And now I know what I'm going to read next... *loads fic*

Thank you! I was Googling pictures of Draco, and found this one of him, so I set it as a challenge at my two icontests.

I hope you enjoy the story. I was pleased with it when I wrote it, but haven't had any feedback, so now I'm not sure about it!
