A/N: I was Deathly Hallows pt.1 and crying when I thought of this but I changed it so it would have a happy ending without death eaters. Also, this is the first thing I’m posting and i love feedback and tips and whatnot.

I stood at the sink with Molly, helping with the dishes as we waited for everyone to get home. I picked at my nails instead of rinsing, deep in thought about their safety. George’s especially. Five years we’ve been together. Five. Molly notices and put the plate in her hand back into the water, turning to face me. She wiped her hands on her apron before putting a hand on each shoulder of mine. “My dear, they’re going to be alright.” She smiled softly.
I nodded at her “I know but that doesn’t make me worry and less.” I chuckled a bit “Y/N. Don’t worry too much love, George would tell you.” She pulled me into a hug, wrapping her frail arms around my shoulders. I hugged her back very tightly and buried my head in her neck. I’ve always loved Molly since I met her the first Christmas George and I spent together. She ran a hand down my cheek with a smile before turning back to the sink.
We stopped when we heard the sputtering engine. Hagrid and Harry are here. They landed in the small pond. “Harry. Hagrid.” Molly said as we went outside “What happened? Where or the others?” She asked “Is no one else back?” Harry asked incredulously “They were on us right from the start, Molly. We didn’t stand a chance.” Hagrid said and I grabbed onto Ginny’s arm tightly, tears starting to sting my eyes. “Well, Thank goodness you two are alright.” She smiled a bit “The death eaters were waiting for us. It was an ambush.” Hagrid told us “Ron and Tonks should be back. Fred and dad as well.” Ginny said as Harry walked to us.
A flash of light from the field caught all our attention as we heard Remus yell “Here! Quick! Into the house!” While supporting one of the Harrys that had a bad bloody face. His ear has been blown off. Harry, the actual one, helped Remus carry the boy I could no longer see because Hagrid had moved into my view. We went into the house and I saw a bit of flaming hair on the couch “Oh my boy!” Molly exclaimed. Remus threw Harry into the wall next to the fireplace.
“Lupin!” Hagrid yelled
“What are you doing?!” Ginny hollered
“Shh!” Remus told them “What creature sat in the corner of my office the first time Harry Potter visited my office in Hogwarts?” He was pointing his wand straight at Harry’s face. “Are you mad?!” Harry screamed “What creature?!” Remus screamed right back. “A-A Gryndilow!” Harry yelled and Remus let go of him “We’ve been betrayed. Voldemort knew you were going to be moved tonight. I needed to make sure you weren’t an imposter.” Remus told us. There was another flash of light outside then Remus ran out.
I looked over at the couch and saw George lying there. I couldn’t bare to look at him so I closed my eyes and covered my mouth as I sobbed. The wave of emotion that came over me was so strong, my knees fell weak and I had to lean against the doorframe. I felt a hand on my shoulder as Ginny pulled me against her. I sobbed into her shirt as my body racked against hers. “He’ll be okay. George isn’t going that easily.” She kept repeating.
When Remus came back in almost everyone was with him. Kingsley, Hermione, Ron, Tonks, Bill, Fleur, Arthur and Fred all walked into the living room. Arthur being the first to come in with a grimace then Fred’s knee hitting the floor in front of the couch as Arthur bent over to take a look at on of his identical boys. Everyone’s silent and I make my way pass everyone and leaving Ginny. I push pass Bill and Harry, sitting in front of George, grabbing his hand. He squeezed tightly as I let out a sob.
“How you feelin’, Georgie?” Fred asked
“Saint-like.” Was George’s groggy response
“Come again?” Fred told him
“Saint-like,” George repeated “I’m holy. I’m holy, Fred. Get it?” He smiled, pointing to his missing ear and smiling at Fred.
“The whole wide world of ear-related humour and you go for ‘I’m Holy’. Thats pathetic.” Fred shakes his head and laughs a bit “Reckon I’m still better looking than you.” George says “I’ll vouch for that.” I rubbed my thumb over George’s hand as he smiled at me cheekily.
“Mad-Eye’s dead.” Was the next news we all received for Bill. It was silent for a moment as we all processed this. “Mundungus took one look at Voldemort and disapparated.” Bill explained to us.
It was after dinner and everyone was I doing their own thing, Ginny, Hermione, Ron and Harry upstairs talking about something. Remus, Tonks, Mr. and Mrs. Weasley and Kingsley all at the kitchen table talking about The Order. Bill, Fleur, Fred and Hagrid were outside, talking about Bill’s time at Hogwarts and how he had known Hagrid all those years ago.
We got George’s head wrapped up and now he was just lying on the couch with his head in my lap. I was running my fingers through the hair that wasn’t covered my bandages and listening to him as he rambled on about how I “should see the other guy” and how “this isn’t even half of what he did to that squib”. I laughed as he did a crazy hand motion with his wand. He winced and I suddenly stopped laughing. “What is it, babe? What’s wrong?” I asked frantically “Nothing, love. It’s just that my used-to-be ear was against your stomach and when you laughed it hurt a bit.” He put his head back in my lap “I’m so sorry, Georgie.” I said, taking my hands away immediately “Hey now, I said that it hurt when you laughed. I didn’t say that you should stop playing with my hair.” He looked up at me with a smile. I shook my head and smiled back, running my fingers through his once again.
I woke up in George’s bed. I rolled over and was met with nothing but sheet. He must have already gotten up. I stretched and threw the blankets back, swinging my legs over the side of the bed, I got up. I sifted through my things and found the dress I was going to wear to Bill and Fleur’s wedding. I quickly got dressed, stopping Hermione outside the twins’ door so she could zip the back up, and went downstairs.
The guys were just getting the tent up as I walked outside. “Bloody hell. What’s the Minister of Magic doing here?” George asked to no one in particular as he walked closer to me. “I shrugged "Most likely to talk to Harry about Dumbledore.” I said “You’re probably right.” He wrapped his arm around my shoulders “As usual.” I smirked “She’s got you there, George.” Ron laughed “Oh shut it, Ronnikins.” George shook his head with a small chuckle “How you doing today, my dear?” I asked, looking up at him “Much better. I’m even making a makeshift hole.” He pointed to the toothbrush sticking out of the side of his head. I laughed “I can see that. It’s working, yeah?” I nodded “Yeah, very well actually.” He smiled widely.
It was dark outside but inside the tent it was bright and lively. It was laughing, clapping and drinking. Toasting, yelling and telling of old family memories. It was truly a magical night. I had a glass in my hand and was bouncing my knee to the music when George walked up to me. “I can’t wait to have this night with you.” He told me as his arm snaked around my waist. I was shocked “Really? With me?” I asked him “Last time I checked.” He laughed. “I can’t wait, Georgie.” I reached up and pulled on his collar, bring our lips together in a sweet kiss.
He rested his forehead on mine as he pulled away to speak, “I do have a question for you, actually.” He said and my eyes went wide as only one thought went through my mind. He’s going to ask me to marry him. He smiled as I blushed “What is it?” I asked him “Do you still love me?” I looked at him curiously. He did not just ask me that. “With my ear missing and all.” He added due to the look I gave him. “Last time I checked.” I laughed “Good, good.” He laughed as he pulled me in for another kiss.
Oh my God, it’s finally done and I like it. I hope you guys do too 😊
tbh I don’t understand why the directors of Shadowhunters didn’t stick to the books?? i mean
1) there are six books in The Mortal Instruments, with more than enough content to keep the show going for a long time.
2) one book = one season. one chapter = one episode (or two chapters for each episode, if some chapters aren’t long enough or eventful enough). seems logical enough to me. They wouldn’t even have to be that long.
3) apparently they changed a bunch of stuff because they wanted readers of the books to be able to enjoy it without knowing what’s going to happen next. But the thing is, I still enjoyed the Harry Potter movies even though I knew what was going to happen. I still enjoyed Deathly Hallows pt 1 & 2 even though I knew Harry would defeat Voldemort in the end. I still loved The Hunger Games even though I knew Katniss wasn’t going to die. There are plenty of book-to-movie adaptations that I still found enjoyable and exciting even though I’d read the books.
4) I feel like the show is moving too fast? Jocelyn woke up in Season 1, Sebastian’s just turned up even though he doesn’t show up until City of Glass, Jace and Clary already know they’re not siblings…in my opinion this removes some of the excitement/tension/anticipation. We spent three books not knowing if Jocelyn would wake up. We didn’t know Clace weren’t siblings until City of Glass. I think the way Cassandra Clare paced her books is better than the way the show is doing it.
5) Not a single character Cassie introduced to us was pointless. They all had a part to play in the story. Shadowhunters, on the other hand…take Lydia, for example. She was set up as Alec’s fiancee, then they didn’t end up marrying each other, and now she’s basically a pointless character who doesn’t add anything to the plot.
If you disagree with me, that’s fine. It’s just my personal opinion :)
I find it interesting how (after its become knowledge amongst the Hogwarts staff that Snape killed Dumbledore) in Deathly Hallows Pt. 1, Charity refers to Severus as a friend, and in the book, she obviously trusts him enough to beg him to help her. It just really makes you think about the relationships he had with other professors.
