Sorry guys, I was busy this past weekend, and this seemed to slip my mind.
Anyway on to this week's challenge:
Have fun with the challenge, and I will update the challenge on this Friday, but you have until Monday September 4th for the current challenge.
Written For: lily100
Lily watched her sister add half a spoon of sugar to her tea.
She added eight to her own and milk, watching carefully as her sister’s eyebrows rose into her hair.
There was a time when her sister would have told her not to be greedy. Enforced moderation.
There had been a time when her sister cared.
It was gone.
“So you’re marring him then?”
“And you want me to be the maid of honor?”
“Would you?” Lily’s green eyes sparkled with cautious hope.“Don’t be greedy Lily, you can’t have both. You chose that world over me.”
Well now look at this it's Friday and I'm actually making the challenge. *gives self a pat on the back*
*ahem* Anywho, big thanks to evelynlela, and lionille for posting drabbles on Pride this past week. Good job ya'll!
Also I would like to thank evelynlela for making the community icons. Thanks so much again!
Alright now onto this week's sin of choice:
Use it wisely for Greed is the downfall of many, well, other than vanity and pride but that was last week.
The challenge will end on August 25, 2006. Have fun and happy drabbling!
Gah, sorry...*facepalm* I had planned on doing this last night before I went to bed, but I forgot to. Please do forgive me.
Big thanks to snitchbtch, damianarose, evelynlelaand xprincessbloomx for posting wonderful drabbles on family.
Now, I'm starting something that will span seven weeks. This idea was born last night when I was writing a fic for 60_minute_fics. We're going to go with '7 Weeks of Deadly Sins'. First sin of choice:
Now, this doesn't have to be about actual 'sin' per se, but just needs to involve Pride in some way. Can be house Pride, or Pride in doing well on an essay.
Challenge will end on August 18, 2006. Have fun, and happy drabbling!

The moon shone brightly in the night sky, bathing the bedroom in a soft glow. Rubbing her round, pregnant belly as she rested, Lily watched the rhythmic rise and fall of James’ chest.
They'd decided to start a family that peaceful Christmas morning when miniature baubles decorated their evergreen tree. She’d been wrapping gifts on the floor, when he’d curled up beside her, lips teasing the pulse point on her neck.
Raising a child in the midst of a war would not be easy, Lily thought as she watched the sleeping form of her husband.
But they’d manage it together.

Prompt: for the family challenge at lily100
“Let’s start a family James,” Lily announced suddenly at breakfast, she was biting her thumb nail.
James almost choked on his coffee, sputtering, his eyes bulging, “What?”
“I want to have a baby, you know, A. Baby.” Lily sighed, reaching out to take his hand.
“Umm…Lil…okay…I guess,” James stuttered, feeling sick, sure his face was green.
“Don’t look so stressed Potter, after all you get to do the fun part,” Lily winked.
Jumping up James grabbed her arm, “well when you put it that way let’s get started on that family now!”
Lily rolled her eyes, boys were so easy.
