I’m so in love with you,
And I hope you know,
Darling your love is more than worth its weight in gold,
We’ve come so far my dear,
Look how we’ve grown,
And I wanna stay with you,
Until we’re grey and old,
Just say you won’t let go.
—  James Arthur, Say You Won’t Let Go.

hc that james and lily get so good at loving each other that they actually don’t know how to be with anyone else:

  • say that. like. at some point after they’ve left school. they get in a real big fight over something stupid
  • ‘REGULAR DIGESTIVES ARE NOT BETTER THAN THE CHOCOLATE COATED ONES’ ‘YES THEY ARE, JAMES’
  • and somehow they end up at the conclusion that they need to take a break
  • ‘well, do you want to date other people’ ‘sure’ ‘no problem’ ‘fine’ ‘cool’ ‘awesome’
  • and five minutes later james is despairing into a bottle of firewhiskey and sirius is telling him that he’s an idiot
  • and lily is over at marlene’s and she can’t seem to stop repeating the words ‘what the fuck. what the f’
  • basically they both work themselves into a stupor and end up spending several nights at bars and clubs trying to get themselves a date
  • sirius takes james to one and sits in the back with his head in his hands because james has completely lost it
  • he has to keep ushering girls away from himself to concentrate on what james is saying
  • and it’s a whole lot of ‘uhh do you like…quidditch? ‘quidditch.’ ‘i like quidditch.’ ‘have you ever played quidditch before?’ ‘these bar crackles are stale’
  • and all he can think about is how this girl isn’t lily and how she’s totally different and doesn’t hold herself in the same way and doesn’t look like her or sound like her and he doesn’t like it
  • but the girl doesn’t mind bc this james potting fellow is handsome af
  • they end up making out in the back of the bar for two hours
  • and james doesn’t mind
  • but like
  • it’s not the same
  • and he forgets
  • he forgets how to do this
  • he forgets that only lily likes it when he bites slightly on the underside of her jaw or loosens his grip around her waist or rests his cheek against hers’
  • he forgets that only lily likes muggle tv shows and shitty romance novels and fresh daisies and he makes assumptions
  • and he doesn’t know what to do
  • and it’s not the same
  • across town lily has been dragged to several shitty cafes and groups and classes and she hates it
  • the only good thing abt it is that there are so many cute girls at the baking sessions and the movie nights but they’re all straight and lily ends up a disgruntled mess with red cheeks and marlene and mary end up looking at each other like ‘this is a fucking stupid idea’
  • but then at this one little village shop she meets this lanky boy who wears tweed blazers and has spiky, caramel coloured hair and sea-green eyes who introduces himself as seth
  • and she’s taken aback bc he’s cute and he’s nice and he likes books
  • he takes her out and she has dinner with him and he’s a little awkward and endearing
  • but he’s not as capable as james
  • his hands don’t quite fit around her the way james’s do
  • and lily forgets
  • she forgets that only james likes the smell of the extra-soft washing powder and he listens to the bee-jees when he thinks she isn’t watching and he’s scared of learning how to drive a manual
  • she forgets that he likes it when she straddles his hips and bops her nose against his and presses kisses along his jawline
  • she forgets
  • and it’s not the same
  • and basically neither of them last more than a two months and it takes all of their strength and self-preservation bc they’re both stubborn and childish af
  • but then there’s a cutesy dinner party that mary and marlene host completely inconspicuously and very subtly forget to mention to either james or lily that the other will be there and so james wears his shirtsleeves rolled up with dress pants and forgets to muss his hair and wears the same aftershave he always does and lily has her hair soft and wears a dress where the cotton is fraying slightly and paints her lips red
  • and she walks in from the kitchen
  • and he walks in from the front door
  • and there are fairy lights strung all across the living room and mary is playing swanky jazz and the fire is going and sirius is making several crude and unnecessary remarks
  • and they stop
  • and lily has to turn away for a second
  • the dinner is stunted and quiet and brash
  • the food is nice and the conversation is stilted but james can’t quite stop looking at lily and lily can’t quite stop giving sideways glances at james and biting her lip
  • she ends up standing in front of the fire, just looking into the flames
  • and he musters up all the courage he has and goes to stand beside her
  • and instead of saying something measured and meaningful all that comes out is ‘you have lipstick on your teeth’
  • and lily looks at him completely shocked and her eyes widen and then she starts laughing
  • ‘james what the fuck i haven’t seen you in two months and the first thing you say to me is you have lipstick on your teeth’
  • and he starts smiling
  • but the moment splinters and breaks
  • and lily looks at him with the most strained and heartbroken expression
  • they look at each other for a full thirty seconds before they walk silently down the hall and into the broom closet outside the kitchen
  • she switches the light on and he locks the door and she starts pacing and he sits down on an upturned box and she bursts out with ‘ok. ok. i can’t do this anymore.’
  • and he looks up at her with something really harsh and unrestrained in his eyes and says ‘thank fuck’
  • and then he’s kissing her
  • and it’s all tongue and teeth and messy and yet completely the way it was meant to be because they fit
  • his hands fit perfectly around her waist and her legs end up straddling his hips and he manages to sneak in kisses around her neck and she loops her hands around his shoulders and presses her lips to his jawline and they fit
  • they work
  • and by the time they stumble
  • stumble
  • out of the closet
  • and everyone’s in the living room looking at them and smiling quietly
  • and lily’s hair is disheveled and james’s shirt isn’t buttoned properly and she’s flushed and now james is the one with lipstick on his teeth
  • and then sirius says ‘i think that went rather well, if you ask me’
  • and lily laughs and james calls sirius a fuckface
  • ‘well, it worked, didn’t it?’
  • james and lily leave holding hands and drive home together
  • and the night is dark outside and lit by the street lights and the beatles are playing softly on the radio
  • and neither of them can stop smiling
  • ‘ok but chocolate covered digestives really are better than regular ones’
  • ‘oh for fUCKS SAKE JAMES’
