Fred Sets You And George Up [Part 1]
Pairing: George x Reader
Request: Hello I’m Hannah and I’m really sorry for how late it is but I have a request. I love both Wesley twins very much, but I have a soft spot for George, I’m in the Hufflepuff house and would like something cute that happens between me and him. Like I don’t know maybe he really likes me but instead of asking me himself if I would go in a date with him, Fred does for him… Or something of that nature? Please and thank you. :-)
A/N: I feel like I say this every damn time I write an Imagine, but I’m sorry for being away so long! Today’s excuse is that I traveled around about half of Australia, graduated from University and competed in the Australian Championships and came second in the country! Look, it’s better than some of my other excuses…! I’ll be more active from now on, for sure! Also look how creative my title is, it’s terrible.
“She’s hot, isn’t she?” Fred says as he nudges his brother, staring at Angelina on the other side of the Gryffindor table.
“Stunning,” George says absentmindedly, not looking over at Fred’s girlfriend.
Fred gives his brother a look, before following his gaze to the (h/c) girl over on the Hufflepuff table, laughing with a few of her friends.
“Just go and ask her, what’s the worst that can happen?” Fred asks,
“She could hear me” George responds miserably.
“Hey babe,” Angelina says with a kiss on her boyfriend’s cheek,
“Hey Ange, what’s your opinion of Y/n?” Fred asks, while George sends daggers with his eyes.
Angelina laughs and looks over at Y/n, “Yeah she’s alright: smart, nice, funny, ticks all the boxes really… She’s single if you’re keen George,” she says with a sly smile,
“No, I’m good—“ George begins,
“WOW GEORGE, YOU HEAR THAT? SHE’S SINGLE” Fred says a little too excitedly,
“Yes thank you Fred I got it, she’s single”
“Then change that, go ask her out”
George rolls his eyes at his brother playing matchmaker and Angelina not helping at all,
“I can’t… She’s not interested in me and I’m not interested in being rejected, and besides—“
“If you don’t ask her out, then I will,” Fred says.
“Knock yourself out, I don’t know how your girlfriend would feel about it though”.
Fred says quietly, turning to Angelina, “You heard that, right? I have permission from Georgie to ask her out, you’re my witness”.
“Yep, heard it with my own ears,” She replies, understanding the plan that was slowly hatching in Fred’s mind.
Transfiguration was the next class that Gryffindor and Hufflepuff shared. As you were walking in the door, someone tugged on the sleeve of your robes,
“Y/n, I need to talk to you for a minute,” Fred says, pulling you around the corner,
“Hey Fred, yes I’m alright, thanks for asking,” you say sarcastically,
“George is the one who should be asking how you are and all that crap,” Fred says once he comes to a halt,
“George?” you say with a confused expression,
“Yes, George, you know him: tall, red hair, great teeth, some say he looks like me but I don’t know what they’re on about,”
You giggle as Fred continues,
“So anyway, that strapping young man has it in his head that you’re not interested in him, so he hasn’t found the balls to come and ask you out, and—“
“Woah woah woah, what?” You ask, looking a little more confused than before,
Fred stares at you for a moment in disbelief, “Come off it, how could you not know he’s into you? He’s staring at you every damn second of the day, it’s very disruptive I tell you…”
“Yeah okay, so you’re saying that George Weasley has a crush on me—“ Fred shushes you, “Sorry,” you say in a quieter voice, “So George is interested in me, but doesn’t want to ask me out… Are you asking me out for him?”
“You know it” George says with a smile, “He’s free tomorrow, you in?”
You look at him for a few moments in a miniature state of shock, before he looks at you with an expression of impatience,
“Uh, well I suppose it wouldn’t hurt—“
“Y/n just say yes” Fred says, looking around the corner to see George approaching the classroom,
“Yes, okay yes, I’ll go on a date with George tomorrow”
“Okay great, also he doesn’t know I’ve asked you out on his behalf, so you’re going to have to ask him out—“
“You already agreed to it, no backing out now!” Fred says louder as he walks into the classroom, leaving you standing there wide eyed.
You spent basically the entire class weighing out your options on if you should or shouldn’t meet up with George tomorrow. You had a fairly big crush on him, which somehow he didn’t know about, since it felt like it was you who was staring at him majority of the time. Maybe this was Fred just pulling a prank… Although their pranks aren’t usually malicious… Maybe George really does like you… But why would George be shy of you? You kept thinking about all the different aspects of the situation when you hear something behind you,
“Fred, what the hell are you doing, I just walk out of here, why would I want to come back”
You turn around to see Fred pushing George into the classroom that you were still sat in.
“Oh, that’s why…” He looks over at you, “I mean she’s why, you’re why, you are not a that, you are a person, sorry…”
“Shit you really are a mess aren’t you,” Fred says, looking at his brother clearly judging him, “No wonder you needed me to ask her out for you,”
George turns his head slowly to glare at his brother, “you what.”
“Ah yes, you gave me permission to ask her out if you didn’t, so I have” Fred says with a triumphant look between the two of you, “So you’re already set up to meet tomorrow, but I thought you should actually have a conversation before you go on a date”.
“Are you actually kidding me” George says, but before he could continue, Fred was walking out the door,
“Have fun, kids!” and with that the door was shut, and you and George were alone together.
George looks at the door for a little while, before turning to face you, looking panicked. You give a little laugh, trying to lighten the mood; defuse the tension one might say.
George gives you a smile, starting to find humour in the situation.
“So George,” you start off saying, feeling more confident than usual. You felt like you had the upper had here, with George being all flustered and caught off guard; it made you feel a little reassured somehow,
“Fred says that you may be interested in me,” you say with a smile,
Ah, yeah, he did didn’t he,” George says, scratching the back of his head,
“Mhm, and I would be more than happy to take him up on his offer to go out with you tomorrow, I hear that you’re aware of the secret passage that leads to Honeydukes, yes?”
George’s eyes widen a bit, “You know about that secret passageway?”
You laugh flirtatiously, “There’s a lot of things you don’t know about me, George,”
“Well maybe I can learn a few things tomorrow. How does 9 o’clock tomorrow night sound?”
Perfect, I’ll see you then, Georgie,” You say with a smile as you head towards the door, leaving Fred to stand there in the empty classroom in shock.
