Most of the first half of the year had been eaten by Before Peace and some months it was the only fic I posted, but when there were others, I used the non-BP fics for that month. Because the first line of a chapter is just not the same as the first line of a whole story. :">
January: Before Peace : Draco kept his eyes closed and his breathing rhythmically steady.
February: Redux: Harry Potter walked into a bar.
March: From the Brink of Twilight: Draco Malfoy disliked Muggles.
April: Before Peace : When his mother didn't respond, Draco felt anger rising -- a tinny, indignant voice somewhere deep, shouting she had no right.
May: Before Peace : "And this is why some wizards are unable to cast healing charms of any sort."
June: Just Another Lifetime: Years later, Draco's mother will say that it was as though he knew what the future held for him when he was born.
July: Phantasmagoria: It was a dodgy Knockturn Alley storage building that started it, though it didn't look capable of starting anything except a rat infestation.
August: Prophetic: Have you seen Remus? [Not mine; JKR's.]
September: Loved You Best: There are faces on the ceiling of Luna's bedroom, with a golden thread looping around them.
October: Prophecy's Limit: "BANE! Happy now, are yeh, that yeh didn't fight, yeh cowardly bunch o' nags? Are yeh happy Harry Potter's -- d-dead...?" [Not mine; JKR's. Canon remixes will do that.]
November: Snape's Last Memory: Snape watched death approach with a detached curiosity, a part of his mind refusing to believe what was happening.
