My responses to the First Lines meme

Makes sense to keep them all in one place, as well as where I originally answered the challenges. :)

Summary : Lucius Malfoy’s reign of terror is finally over.
Source : Jinni

Six months had come and gone since that fateful night when an Auror knocked on her front door to tell her that the unthinkable had happened – Lucius had been caught.

The shame of it - A Malfoy shoplifting!

Narcissa sadly shook her head, as Lucius apparated himself to his assigned community service location, with those horrible bright orange robes they made him wear. They clashed so badly with his long flowing silver locks.

Such a fine figure of a man reduced to standing by a roadside, shouting “Accio litter!”

And for what?

Two packs of tights, a frozen chicken, a Chudley Cannons Quidditch shirt and a copy of PlayWitch. And where in Merlin’s name had he concealed the chicken?

Oh, the shame of it all. What did the neighbours think?

Summary : Xander and Faith wouldn’t know what to do if a plan worked perfectly.
Source : Liz_Marcs

As they speed down the road to Ville Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre from Quebec City, Xander is half-tempted to ask Faith why she’s driving so fast.

A bullet cracks the windshield in front of them, and he decides not to ask any more stupid questions. Not even when Faith drags him into the driver’s seat, and thrusts the wheel into his hands.

He casts a glance backwards at the pursuing goons, as Faith takes advantage of their subsequent skid to vault into the back of their sports car.

It’s when she pulls out the Scythe from the case that he really starts to worry.

And as she launches herself headfirst through the air, Xander swears that this time he’s definitely going to quit being her Watcher.

Summary : Harmony visits her relatives.

Uncle George and Aunt Liz wanted to know all about the trials we had gone through in Uganda.

So I pull out the photo album from where darling Spikey is carrying it, and we pore over all the snaps together. It’s a good thing we vampires do show up in photographs, I laugh.

“Oooo! Look – here’s one of us with the demon shaman!” I exclaim happily, pointing out my favourite (Blondie-bear’s holding his fingers up behind the shaman’s head).

But all those ucky trials we had to go through just to get me my soul back….. No pictures of those stupid things, no way! They were just plain icky.

“And here’s where I carved Harmony & Spike 4 Ever in the shaman’s chest, Uncle George,” I announce proudly, showing them my second favourite picture.

Spike looks at me strangely for a moment, but I don’t mind. My darling thinks that just because he and my former-brooding-boss went all nuts when they got their souls back, that I will too. I love it when he cares that much for me.

I’m sure Uncle George and Aunt Liz would agree if I hadn’t drunk them both dry yesterday. Their cold dead eyes stare down at the photos, as I happily chat on about where Spike and I went from Uganda.

Summary : So now what do you do for the rest of your life? A perfectly reasonable question if your name is Harry Potter…
Source : Houses

This is it. The very first day in my life as a Muggle.

I know Hermione and Ron will miss me, but they’ll understand. To the rest of the Wizarding community, I’ll have fallen in battle while defeating Voldemort.

I stab a pin at random into a map of the United States – I want to go somewhere where I’m unlikely to meet anyone I know, and as I don’t speak any foreign languages, America it is.

California, huh? I look closer – a nice quiet place called Sunnydale. Sounds wonderful!

From now on, I shall be a Muggle. No more magic. No more spells.

The Boy Who Lived is going to get a life!

Summary : Colonel O’Neill has quite the surprise…
Source : Laney

Colonel Jack O’Neill couldn’t take his eyes off her.

Naked Carter.



In his bed.

Naked. Did he mention that?

With what could only be described as come hither eyes, and a beckoning finger. Not to mention the very impressive rack.

“For the love of god, Carter,” he managed to croak out, “Please tell me you’ve been possessed by some sex-starved alien doohickey.”

Sam said nothing, but just crawled across the bed towards him. Naked. Then, with one swift move, toppled both of them back onto the bed together. Their lips locked, and Jack finally gave in.

And that was when the alarm clock woke Jack O’Neill up.
