Challenge #9: Write a drabble featuring Crabbe and Goyle before exams.

Trolls in Everything

"Are you ready for O.W.L.s?" Millicent Bulstrode asks Gregory.


"They say that if you don't get at least an A in Charms you'll never be hired anywhere," Milicent says.

Vincent says he's heard the same thing.

"We have to get an A in Charms."

They find an abandoned textbook in the common room – they've never bothered to buy books – and stay up all night reading and practicing. When morning comes they feel like they'll maybe manage to scrape an A.

Until a tiny first year in pigtails comes up to them.

"Excuse me, I think you have my book."
