Past Featured Story Something Worth Waiting For by ReillyJade



Banner by KaYLO REN @ TDA

 

Teddy doesn't know when he fell for Victoire. He doesn't know whether it's okay that his feelings for his best friend have grown far beyond platonic. And he definitely doesn't know why she's so gloomy the summer before her seventh year. There's a lot of things Teddy doesn't know.

 

What he does know, though, is time is running out, and a year apart is a long time.

 

--A mostly fluffy three-shot about what happened before the kiss on Platform 9 3/4.--

Sometimes, things happened when they were least expected. Thoughts that had once meandered quietly in the peripheries of your mind suddenly exploded into the forefront of rational thought, fully formed and demanding your attention. This was one of those times. So, when Harry looked at Ginny and found her already turned to him, pale eyebrows drawn together and bottom lip tucked under her front teeth in confusion, all he could think was oh.


Oh.


 


Ginny was really pretty.

"If she wants to be alone, Lily won’t have gone to any of their usual haunts, or anywhere busy, which quickly rules out all of their friends’ homes, his parents’ old house, or even Hogsmeade. James knows that if Lily doesn’t want to be found, it will almost certainly be impossible for him to detect her. He can only hope others are similarly unsuccessful. "

 

James and Lily have just been told that their little boy may be destined to end the war his parents have been fighting in for years. Neither of them takes it well.
