Drabble: Any Other Name (June 2009)  
[200 words, G. Might become a longer story later.]


"You’re going to name the kid Severus Vane!? You’re both completely out of your minds."

"And this is different from how you usually think of us?" Bill growled.

Ron had sufficient grace to flush, but he continued to glare at his brother and sister-in-law. "Of all the people you could name him after, why Snape? Why not Harry--"

"Just like every tenth boy born in Wizarding Britain over the past decade?" Ginny snorted.

"--or Remus, or Kingsley…" Ron trailed off. Although Luna's face had remained serene, there was an unmistakable undertone of fury in her voice as she answered, "Or Gideon. Or Fabian. Or Cedric. Or Albus."

Charlie spoke up. "How does Snape himself feel about this?"

Bill grinned. "Appalled, of course. His reaction wasn't that far off from Ron's, in fact. But he agreed to be godfather anyway-- that's what matters."

"And Vane's your other choice?" Hermione said. "They'll balance each other well."

"Will they?" Ron demanded. "Vane's a right sort, but Snape--"

Luna made an impatient gesture. A flurry of dark red rose petals cascaded from her hand to the floor.

"Severus sees more than people want him to see. And so shall my son."

Lovely! Quite a believable argument discussion about the name choice. And of course I feel like cheering for Luna and Bill!

You do realize that encouragement like this only makes me want to keep being evil, don't you?

*knits brows* But is it encouragement if you were going to be evil anyway...? Glad you enjoyed it! :-)

You are, as always, incorrigible.

*incorriges you further*

'Tis the company I keep, methinks...

(And now I've got "Corri, corri a mangiar" stuck in my head...)
