“Seventeen, eh!" said Hagrid as he accepted a bucket-sized glass of wine from Fred.
"Six years to the day we met, Harry, d’yeh remember it?"
"Vaguely," said Harry, grinning up at him. "Didn’t you smash down the front door, give Dudley a pig’s tail, and tell me I was a wizard?"
"I forge’ the details," Hagrid chortled.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

C H A L L E N G E
We're all different when it comes to our birthday. Some of us demand attention and only the best of it. Some of us like to pretend it's not our birthday. Some even go so far as to consider it one more day closer to death. Truthfully, I am the latter. Regardless, birthdays are emotional no matter when or where.
How would you envision someone else to see it? Through the eyes of a character from the Potterverse, either OC or Canon, write a drabble of an emotional moment from one of their birthdays. It can be because of their birthday or even circumstances around them at the time. Paint a small moment in time in no more and no less than exactly 100 words. Come on, make me cry.



R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ This is a prose prompt in the form of a drabble. A drabble is a small snippet of writing that consists of 100 words exactly.
+ Your story can be from the point of view of either an OC or Canon character but must remain within the Potterverse.

Woo, since I'm so freaking good (ahem sarcasm) at word limits, this should be a PIECE OF CAKE

All kidding aside, this is a very interesting prompt!

Should we also add a Header (Title, Characters, Genre, Warning, Word Count & Author's Note) when submitting the Drabble? Or should we only submit the Drabble without any Header?

I know Headers don't count as words but I'm not sure if you also want to have this?

Also: Is wordcounter.net okay to count our words? Or should we use another page?

You don’t have to but if you did include any of that it wouldn’t count towards the word count. It wouldn’t help nor hinder you, if that makes sense?

And word counter . Net is fine
