I wrote my first two drabbles today. (Is this related to the fact that I should be revising in my free time? Who knows? Procrastinators unite!) I'd like to commemorate this moment.
Yes, I'm a big geek. What do you expect? It's the internet. :d
Disclaimer: Not mine, although I think I’m sometimes nicer to them than JKR is

's challenge "hope":
Harry was pleased for Bill and Fleur, but he felt this was a time for family. He made his excuses and left St Mungo’s maternity ward. In the cafeteria, staring sightlessly into a cup of coffee, was Draco Malfoy. Harry paused, then went to sit by him.
“Harry.” His voice was carefully disinterested.
“Why are you here?”
“Fleur Weasley just had a daughter.”
They looked at each other, saw shadows of that one night in each other’s eyes. “We can’t do this again.”
“It’s a new world – ”
“Don’t be naïve.”

When He First Fell
Draco was getting money from a hole in the wall when he fell in love with Harry Potter.
He’d hated the idea of a Muggle date. To him, Muggles were vermin: as with rats, he was more scared than revolted. Draco had been considering feigning illness.
But he didn’t want to do that, and besides Harry said he’d teach him how to withdraw money from Muggle bank accounts. So he tried, and got frustrated with the buttons.
A Muggle behind them grumbled and Draco flinched. Instantly he felt a protective hand on the small of his back.
That was it.
