Drabbles and Pranks

I've been doing a lot of Drabbles for the HP100 Challenge.

Since this one doesn't fit the current challenge, I'll post it here. (It's the beginning of my fic-a-fest challenge, too.)

((No, I haven't forgotten the Halloween story. :/))

Harry had learned caution the hard way.

The first day, his shoe laces would not stay tied. He hadn't even realized it was a prank until he'd seen Ginny sniggering behind her hand.

The second day, his socks had gradually become colder until he'd been forced to go to Madam Pomfrey with frostbitten toes.

Every article of clothing, even his glasses, even his… well, everything… had been hexed at some point.

This morning, he cast a "Finite Incantatem" on everything he touched, even all the doorknobs.

When he was finished, he found that he couldn't let go of his wand.

Okay, that made me giggle like a little child. *hee hee*

Thanks for the review! (More of this to come.)

Ooh, I look forward to seeing it.

(Incidentally, your recent HP100 drabbles are all really great.)

I read this eagerly, knowing that you put a little twist into things you write! I grinned like crazy all through and when I got to the last line, I burst out laughing and nearly slid off my chair!
Superb! A very neat distillation!

Thanks! I hope you like Harry's comeback. ;-)

(PS -- I should have your excellent story back to you by the 22nd.)

Run with it sounds histerical.

Thanks! I've got a sequel drabble in the works, and I'll combine the two and expand them for the Challenge.

I agree with the others. It's brilliant. You've just got one Americanism (snickered vs sniggered) and one typo (Incantadem vs Incantatem), and I didn't even notice them the first time, as I was laughing.

Thanks for the review, and for the corrections!
