Disclaimer: Neither the characters nor the idea for this fic are mine. I simply executed the concept to the best of my abilities with the available tools. (See Note for details.)
George picked the shaken Muggle up from the pavement and returned his wallet.
“Thank you so much, young man!” said the older gentleman. He dusted himself off and straightened his glasses, the better to peer gratefully at George.
Fortunately for George, the surrounding Muggles seemed just as oblivious to the poor gent’s rescue as they’d been to his plight. To be safe, he glanced around casually, making sure that his biting teacup and other assorted Wheezes were picked up so as not to rouse any curiosity. “Oh, no trouble. Are you all right?”
“Yes, thanks to you! Let me buy you a drink?” The old fellow asked. In point of fact, he rather insisted, as he had George by the elbow and was enthusiastically moving toward the droll sign over ‘The Jolly Frog.’
“Well, tackling a mugger is thirsty work…” George said, not too put out by the delay. It was hard to say no to a drink, especially at an establishment that had a rather wizard-like air of whimsy about it.
But at last, George took his leave. “Sorry, but I really must be off. Thanks again for the pint!”
The old fellow beamed, looking rather like the Jolly Frog on the sign. “Wherever you’re going young fellow, do have a grand time! But before you go, I must ask... how DID you get that teacup to stick on the big bloke’s nose?”
George grinned nervously and stuck his hand in his pocket. “Ah… Confundus!”
Author’s Note: This drabble was based on the meme below:
The idea is simple (HAH!): pick ten characters from the Potter books without looking at the questions, and number them 1 to 10; then answer the questions without changing the order in which you chose the characters to make them fit better. (Thanks a lot, Potteresque_ire, for re-posting this brain-eater. LOL)
This was my blind list:
6. Mrs. Figg
Another nearly all-dialogue ficlet was my answer to question 13 of 16—
Q13. 7 sees a stranger getting mugged, does he/she continue walking or help in some way?
