Ball in commemoration of the Battle of Hogwarts
By Anya Heart
This July 31th, day of the eighteenth birthday of Harry James Potter, will takes place a ball at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to commemorate the victory of the Chosen One against the Dark Wizard know as Lord Voldemort.
Before the ball, a ceremony will takes place where six young wizards and witches, who had an active role during the war and the downfall of the Death Eaters and their so-called Dark Lord, will each receive an Order of Merlin, First Class.
The eight wizards and witches are the following:
-Harry James Potter: For continuing the fight without losing one once of hope and for putting an end to the war by defeating Voldemort
-Ronald Weasley: For helping Harry Potter in his quest and by his personal fight during the last battle and defeating well-know dangerous Death Eaters like Rodolphus Lestrange and Antonin Dolohov.
-Hermione Granger: For helping Harry Potter in his quest and for using her incred

~Fred's POV ~
When I appeared at my flat, I immediately felt bad somehow. I had again lost my nerves and had spoken rather coldly with my oldest brother and my other siblings and their partners in general. Of course I hadn't meant to but what gives them the right to tell me that I should care if Hermione didn't care either? I hope that didn't sound as naive as I think.
Sighing I lowered myself onto the couch, leant my head back and looked at the ceiling. Have I ever mentioned before that the whole situation was depressing and that I felt as if I wasn't myself anymore? Yes? Oh, then forgive me that I repeated it once again. Stretching my arms into the air, I closed my eyes and sighed again. I needed silence and at least a bit time alone so I hoped that no one would apparate or floo into this place right now.
I didn't realise that I fell asleep until I was woken up roughly by a loud CRACK. It

- Law is Law
When I reached our flat that afternoon, I still wanted to throw things around or just scream. Of course it was not that Hermione was a stranger or a person I absolutely don't like or even hate but I was together with Angelina for so long. She was at my side after the wall had crushed down on me. She was the one to hold my hand while I was in this bloody coma. Sure, my parents and my siblings did the same, but that's not what I mean. And yeah, maybe Hermione did, too but it was just not fair.
I am happy that at least George and Ginny got the partners they wanted. My other siblings are already married or engaged. At least I think that Charlie still is with his fiancée. Well I don't know for sure but that's also not what bothers me. The only thing that matters is that I will lose my Angelina to Oliver Wood, my mate oh happy day, right? No, because I know that he had always had an eye on her and i

- Seven Letters to a major Change
Why do they take so long to wake up on Sundays? I have asked myself this question for I don't know my whole life? Yeah, this could be. At least every time I was at home on Sundays which wasn't that often when I think about the last few years. Whatever, if they don't get up soon, their coffee will be cold and I'll be gone without saying goodbye. Ouch the thought of it hurts, so I'll better wake them up.
So I went up to my parent's room, quiet but quick. I wondered how I managed to do this but shook my head when I was in front of their room. I slowly opened the door, sneaked in and knelt down next to my father's side of the bed.
"Dad? You need to get up, it's late already." I whispered shaking him gently.
He groaned and opened one eye. "Mh? What is it?"
"The two of you need to stand up. I'll be leaving in half an hour and I would like to eat at least one toast with you. And your cof

- The time till you have to say goodbye
Why had I said 'as soon as possible' to Mrs. Weasley? Ah yeah, because I was hardly able to think clearly that day. Understandable, right? I mean, what would you do if your fiancé told you that he would stay together with his current girlfriend after you had told EVERYONE that you would ditch your own boyfriend immediately because of this Law? It would somehow hurt you, wouldn't it? See, and the same was it for me. Sure, I kind of thought that he would say this and I'm also not bad about him, it's his life nonetheless but it was hard.
Two days after he had told me that, Mrs. Weasley wanted to see all of us for dinner. Of course dinner was only an excuse for 'I want to plan your dates of marriage'. It was hard to see him sitting there, saying that he wants us to marry as late as possible right after his mother started the topic.
"No Fred! You can't have everything for your own! You'r

- Angelina's Marriage
Yes, she must've known. What? That I've started to develop feelings for him. That the time we spent together was not only a deepening of our friendship as he claimed it at least not for me. We had gotten closer to each other than ever before and this together with my acceptance to become his wife and my longing for love well you know the result by now.
You might say 'what about Ron, you can't tell me that you already don't love him anymore'. You're right, I still do like him but he won't be with me. It's not the same. All in all, my feelings were slowly about to change entirely. I would go back to friendship with Ron and this liking would turn into liking Fred as it already has. A bit. Maybe I still could prevent myself from falling for him but I somehow doubted it. You couldn't do anything else than doubt it when you think about his deep blue eyes which are sparkling wh

-I do care!-
Arriving at the flat, I immediately wished to be elsewhere. A glance at the couch made me remember the two times when we woke up together. In our room, it smelled too much like him. George's room was taboo, the shop was closed and I wouldn't feel good being there. Only the kitchen or going to my parents was left. Well the latter wasn't really possible either; they would ask too many questions.
So, I went to the kitchen and jumped onto a counter. I hid my head in my hands. The only thing one could hear in between the silence, were my quiet sobs and twice a rather loud crash which came from my shoes when I kicked them off
I wondered whether someone Fred to be honest, would already miss me or if Ginny had already told George and Katie that I left. If yes how had they reacted?
My dance with Angelina couldn't be compared to those we used to have. It was rather distant and I always had the f

I woke up late the next few days. Usually, my fiancé was also still asleep when I woke up, but today was different. Fred had already left to open the shop. I could tell from the slight noise which was coming from downstairs and Lee's loud voice. He was so kind to help again, now that George wouldn't be there for two weeks.
Sighing, I rolled onto my belly and laid my head on my crossed arms. Looking at the mattress Fred always slept on, I thought about the marriage for the first time. About the kiss in particular. I had never thought that it would come so early so soon after he had lost his love to his former Quidditch-Captain. But it had been so nice such a nice, great feeling. His lips against mine it had been the best prove I could think of. Why? Because Fred wouldn't kiss someone he didn't like or didn't care about.
It made me smile happily. He did like me more than a friend enough to ki

- I hate marriages!
When Katie and I returned from our date that night, we didn't hesitate to switch on the light in the living room, expecting no one to be there. Katie, however, immediately made a jump and turned it off again.
"They are on the couch!" she whispered to me.
"Really? Should we give them a blanket again?" I really haven't seen them but I felt a grin appear on my face.
"No, they're much closer today, they won't need it." she said and I could imagine her grinning widely.
It was the second time within two weeks that they fell asleep together on that sofa. The first time left me smiling for the rest of the night as it just looked too strange but positive at the same time. This also was the moment I knew that their relationship would really work and that Hermione had forgiven him. And this time well as mentioned, I didn't see it myself but I'm sure that I can persuade Katie to show me exactly how they were laying.
