disdainful redhead coalition

shadowkate  asked:

For the Harry Potter thing: 1) Avengers, 2) Crossover 3 & 4) Don't care. Have fun!

“I love New York.”  Ginny was still slowly bleeding through her shirt, but her heavy boots were up on a chair and there was a pint of cold lager in her hand, and they’d won.  To hell with everything else.

Natasha gave her the faintest of smiles.  ”You’re just saying that because you don’t have to stay and clean up.”  She tossed back her second shot of vodka and refilled the glass.  She stretched carefully until her shoulder popped.

"No no, I mean it.  Your food is good, your shopping’s brilliant, and I haven’t been haunted or possessed even once.”

Pepper laughed as she slid into the seat next to Natasha, her drink glittering green as it swirled in the glass.  ”And,” she said, lifting her glass, “we have the best disdainful redheaded coalition this side of the Atlantic.”

Ginny lifted her glass.  ”I’ll drink to that.  You don’t need an Auror in the Avengers, do you?”

Natasha’s smile got just a little wider.  ”Your government might have a problem with that.  But let me tell you about Excalibur.”
