Seize the moment.
Remember all those women on the Titanic
who waved off the dessert cart.

"Oh, blast!" Luna exclaimed as she ran through the billowing clouds of smoke to the small kitchen. "Don't do this to me. He's going to be here any minute and the package said 8 to 10 minutes..." Her voice trailed off as she realized she hadn't set the little timer thing on the oven after all.
What's a half-hour more or less.
A lot when it comes to dinner rolls I guess, she decided as she pulled the baking sheet out of the oven and tilted her head to see if there were any salvageable ones.
"The birds won't even eat these," she muttered to herself as she let them slide off the tray into the rubbish bin.
In this house of broken things
Everyone could use some help

Unbelievably, unexpectedly — it had been a quiet week. All that worry, and nothing. Remus had slept without interruption the past few days for the first time in months.
Perhaps the werewolf had seen them resetting the wards after all, and had moved along.
Lupin didn't think so, however. And judging from what Bill was saying, he agreed.

It's Sunday, I should be doing... stuff. Adrian's mind kept wandering away from the papers he was supposed to be grading. Potions class shouldn't have papers assigned... I wonder how mad the students will be if tell them I "lost" the papers so they'll just have to do some sort of... project to get the grade. Too mean? They're kids, they got time. I don't want to read anymore papers.
His pity party was interrupted by a knock at his door.
Yes! Sweet distraction.
Opening the door with a grin, Adrian decided he had never been happier to see Luna.
"Hey there. You're right on time for your study session," he told her with a wink before inviting her in.
