Harry knew that this was wrong. He shouldn't have been there.

No magic can raise the dead.

Only once, he promised himself.

The air was humid in the thick of the forest and Harry shuddered at the memory of his last visit.

After hours of searching, he finally found it.

The Resurrection Stone.

A shiver of anticipation pervaded him.

In a few seconds, he would see his loved ones.

"Sorry, professor. Apparently, I'm not stronger than you".

He turned the cracked stones three times in his hand and closed his eyes.

Only once and then I will begin to live.

The sweet melody of the enchanted carillon filled the shadowy room.

A sweet smell of talcum powder permeated the air.

Harry took a deep breath.

Tired and sweaty after a long, dangerous mission, back at home, all Harry could think of was his son.

Little toy Snitch flew around the room.

James enjoyed trying to catch them.

But now they flew undisturbed, as the baby slept happily in his cot.

Harry sat in the rocking chair, watching his son and fell asleep, lulled by the tinkling melody, the rustle of the Snitch's wings and the regular rhythm of James' breath.

Harry hoped that his expression would inspire confidence, and no pity.

"It's okay. Now I'll take you to a safe place, where you'll find a family that will love you and where they'll give you a potion that you'll drink when the full moon is near".

The boy hid behind his older sister, she didn't seem to trust Harry.

"And they'll close us in a hut and give us food for dogs to eat" she said.

It took a long time and much persuasion to convince them of his good intentions.

He'll slay the monster that had bitten the children!

The headmaster's office was exactly like the last time that Harry had been there.

Only two paintings at the center of the room were a novelty.

Snape looked at him from above his hooked nose, silent, as if waiting for Harry to answer a question.

But the boy's attention was centered on his mentor.

"I don't know what to do. I don't know how to go forward"

Dumbledore looked at him with a twinkling secret in his eyes.

"My dear boy, I think that when you don't know how to go forward, it's often useful to stop and look around"

Harry Side-Along Apparated Ginny at Godric's Hollow.

Thick and white, the snow was falling on the ground.

"Now you can open your eyes", he whispered.

Harry didn't take his eyes off her, as she realized where they were and her expression changed into one of surprise and joy.

"It's our home?" she asked, her voice tinted of wonder.

"Merry Christmas, Ginny", he said, watching the shining snow in her hair.

In the distance, the church bells chime midnight, carols floated in the air and Harry closed his eyes, listening to the snow whisper words of love and family and happiness.

Wow, fantastic use of your titles! I think my favorites are the first two--the first one is so haunting with the Resurrection Stone. It only makes sense to me that Harry would be tempted to go back and find it. And I just love daddy!Harry. What a beautiful picture.

Thanks for posting! :D

*momento di contentezza perché non deve lasciare un penoso commento in inglese*

Harry che, tornato da un'estenuante missione, si addormenta accanto alla culla in cui riposa il piccolo James è un'immagine dolcissima.
Ho sempre pensato che sarebbe un padre eccellente, volendo dare ai sui figli quell'infanzia spensierata e felice che lui non ha potuto avere.

The Cracked Stones e Twinkling Secrets (applauso per l'uso del prompt) mostrano come Harry non sia altro che un essere umano, una persona con le sue debolezze e momenti di smarrimento, piccoli o grandi che siano. L'importante è non perdersi d'animo e ritrovare la giusta strada, magari con l'aiuto da parte di chi portiamo caro nel cuore.
E - yay! - portrait!Snape. Anche quel vecchio pipistrello ha bisogno di amore (Snape, fammi tua! ♥ *lancia mutandine*)

Ho adorato l'ultima drabble in particolare.
Il che può sembrare strano visto che sono una fan sfegatata dello slash, soprattutto se involve Harry/inserire-nome-maschile-a-caso-meglio-se-di-qualche-decennio-più-grande (Harry, you slut! D:), e mi sono gustata varie fics con del pesante Ginny bashing.
Tuttavia ho da poco realizzato che anche questa coppia ha il suo valore. Harry ha bisogno di una donna forte come Ginny, che lo indirizzi, lo aiuti nelle sue scelte, senza, però, imporsi e opprimerlo con la sua presenza, e che, soprattutto, possa donargli l'amore di una famiglia come ha sempre desiderato.
The Whispering Snow diviene quasi un messaggio di speranza, con promesse di un futuro felice, pieno di calore e affetto. Mi piace pensarla come il diretto sviluppo della precedente.
*sta ordinando in ordine cronologico tutte le drabble ed è piuttosto soddisfatta del risultato*

Oddio, questo commento è diventato una sorta di poema. Ehm, sorry.

Ultima cosa davvero. Ti ho aggiunto qui e su LJ visto che sono interessata a leggere le altre tue drabble e ho adocchiato anche quelle due traduzioni. Quindi, alla prossima! :D

They are all well done but my favorites are the first, second and fourth ones.
That first one is so haunting, *shivers* the second is so sweet and loving, *cuddles Harry and his son* and the fourth made me smile. DD never changes, does he?

Nice job!
