pansy parkinson loved working for the daily prophet.
it gave her an excuse to gossip all day long every day and also get paid.
it was a dream come true, and it also helped that she was a superb writer.
well, in her opinion anyway.
but she didn’t like when rita skeeter told her she had to interview ron weasley.
“you have got to be kidding me,” she complained, “he is a weasley. there is no reason to write news about him. he isn’t interesting.”
“yes, he is!” rita chastised, “he is not only the best friend of the boy who lived, he is also a war hero and his sales are skyrocketing at his joke shop with his brother george. i tried to interview george months ago, but he is still too torn up over his brother frank’s death. people keep asking about their new products. i need this article.”
pansy felt the urge to correct her and tell her that their dead brother was named fred, but she knew that would make her look too soft.
pansy wasn’t soft. she couldn’t be.
“heroes are overrated. ron weasley is overrated. get cormac to do it.”
“i want the best to do this, pansy. you’re the best.”
pansy smirked. at least rita recognized talent.
“fine, but i expect a raise.”
rita rolled her eyes, “fine, you’re insufferable.”
pansy flipped her hair and clicked her tongue, “i know! thank you.”
“please leave my sight now,” rita ordered, “and go do that interview. i expect the article to be written by tomorrow.”
pansy didn’t say anymore. she left their building and headed down diagon alley toward the joke shop.
there was a large crowd outside waiting to get in, and pansy couldn’t help but roll her eyes.
the fact that people actually found the weasley’s products enjoyable was baffling to her, but this wasn’t the time to judge.
it was time for her to do her job and get what she wanted.
she pushed her way through the crowd without saying a word, and she heard people huff and complain behind her.
she finally made it to the front of the line and took out her notepad.
ron weasley was at the counter, and she gulped as soon as she caught sight of him.
he had filled out since the war, and she couldn’t help but focus on his hands.
they were rough and they were large. and if you looked up, you saw his tattoo sleeves lining to the edge of his palms.
her mouth was watering.
by the time he noticed she was there, he had said her name three times.
“parkinson,” he said hotly, “what the hell are you doing here?”
she glared slightly at his tone, but she pushed back her bitchy thoughts that were brewing.
“i’m here to interview you, weasley. take me somewhere private so we can get this over with.”
“fuck that. i’m not doing anything for you.”
he tried to push past her to help a customer, but she grabbed his wrist and held onto it tightly.
she was aware that her long black nails were probably digging into his skin, but she hoped that would help him get the point.
“let go of me,” he hissed under his breath, “or i’ll hex you into oblivion.”
she smiled sweetly, “i’d like to see you try.”
he stared into her eyes now, and she could see the fury behind them.
he was hot. she hated that she thought he was hot.
she wasn’t going to look away first, and he was not backing down.
“i’ll give you an interview if you never step foot in my shop again,” he told her.
she smirked, “you have a deal, weasley.”
but pansy didn’t keep her promise as time went on, and ron didn’t seem to mind.

So! I am currently in the process of relocating to a whole new state and wanted to try and sell down my unwanted doll collection as much I could before packing everything up.
I’ve tried my best to price everything to sell quickly based on current going eBay and Amazon prices, but I can haggle.
I am not looking to do any doll trading, but if you feel like you gotta have something and can’t spare the cash, we’ll see what we can do.
All doll prices are before shipping and unfortunately I can only ship within the US.
All dolls and play sets are from a pet free and smoke free environment. They’re in generally good condition, although there are a couple that have problems with glue seepage in the hair. Some of the dolls have had their hair washed or styled, so please see pictures for reference. If you want additional pictures of any doll just let me know. The best way to reach me is e-mail or twitter because Tumblr’s messaging and ask system is really unreliable.
