George Weasley Imagine- Through the Years

• Y/N and the rest of the Granger family stood between platforms 9 and 10 at 10:50 am on September 1st, 1989, completely nonplussed as to how to get to platform 9 ¾
• Y/N, inheriting the intelligence passed down to her and Hermione’s generation from both her parents, spotted a group of gingers headed their way that looked too distinctly abnormal to not be wizards, and found her final hope
• Bravery is not a trait either of Y/N’s parents prided themselves with having, but somehow both her and Hermione not only have it but love it
• Y/N marched up to these probable wizards and asked the ginger woman how to get on to platform 9 ¾, knowing fully that she was risking breach of the International Statute of Secrecy on her first day of being a part of the wizarding world, but being desperate enough to do so
• Obviously, the Weasleys are glad to help the Grangers onto the platform and the twin gingers that are incidentally in her year help Y/N onto the train
• Y/N sits in a compartment empty besides the ginger twins she had just met on the train ride to Hogwarts
• “I’m Fred” -George “And I’m George” -Fred
• “Why do I feel like you’re lying to me?” -Y/N
• They’re secretly <i>so impressed<i>
• After exchanging information on each of their respective worlds, Y/N and the twins talk about which house they want to be in
• Y/N explains to them how she’s read all about Hogwarts and how she’s had a complete existential crisis because she feels like she’d be a Ravenclaw but she <i>really<i> wants to be a Gryffindor
• The twins tell her how they wants to be Gryffindors too because their whole family has been Gryffindor before them
• The sorting happens and all three of them are sorted into Gryffindor
• The Weasley twins and Y/N are best friends and Lee Jordan is becoming a good friend of theirs too. Y/N is close with Angelina Johnson too and Lee always asks Y/N to talk him up to her
• The twins know they want Y/N in their lives forever when Fred dares her to do whatever it takes to get a reaction out of Professor Binns and she becomes the only known student to ever receive a detention from him
• Y/N does this by walking up the aisle of desks straight to Professor Binns and taking his notes and reading them with added Y/Nish comments
• “Now the Giant Wars are super important- hear me out. Gorter the Gargantuan was a real looker and I mean, he was gargantuan (if you know what I mean)” *winks at Professor Binns*
• Second year was a lot of the same, Angelina Johnson used a jinx Y/N may or may not have taught her from a book she read in the library on Lee Jordan and Y/N may or may not have high-fived her while Fred and George desperately looked at shelf after shelf for the counter-curse
• Y/N totally knew the counter-curse and after a while of watching them scramble, told George it was “anaticula”
• George enthusiastically goes to use this spell and a bunch of ducks come out of his wand
• Y/N laughs hysterically and wipes tears off her face before putting Lee Jordan right. It’s of course now that Madam Pince finally notices the chaos going on in her library, and kicks them out by enchanting a bunch of books to chase them out the door
• Third year Y/N comes to the platform with the rest of the Grangers, except this year her little sister accompanies her on the train
• Hermione quickly makes friends with Neville Longbottom and after making sure she’s okay, Y/N leaves her sister to find her favorite ginger twins
• Halloween feast comes and Hermione’s not sitting at Gryffindor table with Y/N
• Y/N is totally worried, biting her lip, jiggling her leg, drumming her fingers
• George notices and asks her what’s up, Y/N tells him
• Cue Quirrel: “Troll in the dungeon!”
• Y/N completely freaks out because Hermione is nowhere to be found
• Fred and George know what to do though
• The three of them race to Gryffindor tower, and for the first time in the three years they’ve spent at Hogwarts, the twins entrust another person with the knowledge of the Marauder’s Map
• Y/N has no time to marvel at it, she has to find Hermione
• Finding her, Ron, and Harry in a girls bathroom, Y/N, Fred, and George rush to their aid
•Looks like they didn’t need any help from their older siblings, troll’s knocked out and Mcgonagall’s already given Harry and Ron five points each for Gryffindor when Y/N and the twins arrive
• Hermione runs into Y/N’s arms and hugs her, Mcgonagall’s original stern face that must’ve been spurred because the students left their common room at a time like this melts into one of warmth
• George realizes he likes the way Y/N is so protective of her little sister and decides to devote the same to Ginny when she gets to Hogwarts
• At the start of fourth year, when Y/N bounds up to the twins to hug them on platform 9 ¾, George realizes Y/N is super pretty
• George realizes Ginny is acting weirdly and is in the middle of discussing his findings with Fred when Y/N comes down from the girls’ dormitories and George knows this is where he needs to go for advice
• Fred, George, and Y/N go to talk to Ginny and Y/N knows this is not an average case of the flu
• Muggleborn after muggleborn is petrified and Fred and George do not let Y/N go anywhere by herself
•They literally stand outside the girls’ bathroom while she’s using the toilet
• Y/N jokes about their protectiveness but is secretly super grateful and thanks them after Penelope Clearwater, the fourth occurrence, is petrified
• Then Hermione is petrified, and Y/N instantly blames herself for not making sure she was never alone
• She cried on George’s shoulder until she fell asleep in the common room that night, him George assuring her that she was being too hard on herself and that Hermione would be okay soon
• George attempts to carry the sleeping Y/N up to her dorm but the stairs turned into a slide and she woke up laughing at him for trying and asking him why he never read <i>Hogwarts: A History<i>
• That was the moment George knew he actually liked Y/N
• Mcgonagall comes into the common room to tell the Weasleys that Ginny is in the chamber of secrets and that they’re doing everything in their power to save her
• They’re all freaking out and Y/N is trying to comfort the twins but she really can’t do that efficiently when she wasn’t even comforted herself
• When they go to see Ginny in the hospital wing after Harry gets her out, they all run to hug her, and Y/N gives Ginny a hug equivalent to the one Fred and George saw her give Hermione a year ago after the troll incident
• George really likes the way Y/N fits right in with his family
• It’s days before fifth year begins and the Weasleys and Harry meet the Grangers in Diagon Alley
• George notices Y/N is extra pretty, especially without the Hogwarts uniform on
• Fred and George want to make sure they’re making the right decision before they do the <i>craziest thing they’ve ever done<i> so they go to Y/N to see if they should give Harry the Marauder’s Map
• Of course Y/N is all for it, she’s the kindest Gryffindor you’ll ever meet and George is constantly asking whether the sorting hat ever had the issue of also wanting to sort her into Hufflepuff
• “Well yeah, the hat wanted Ravenclaw and then it was like ‘I see you want Gryffindor’ and I was all ‘well, mate it’s really up to you amirite’ and the hat was all 'I also take your opinion’ and I was like 'woah bro, that’s totally cool giving people the right to choose’ and the hat was all 'you could also go for Hufflepuff my dear’ and I was like 'but Gryffindor please’ and now I’m here”
• During Ron and Hermione’s crazy fights, Y/N goes to talk to Ron about it because she cares about Hermione’s relationships and all the Weasleys
• George makes a note of how Y/N treats his siblings as her own and remembers to at least try to help Hermione out one day, even though she wasn’t remotely as fun as Y/N
• Sixth year arrives and Y/N and Hermione are staying at the burrow for part of the summer to go to the Quidditch World Cup
• Knowing how much Y/N, Gryffindor team chaser loves Quidditch, Fred and George want to make this the best experience of her life
• George overhears Y/N giving Ginny advice about her crush on Harry telling her to relax around him so he could see her beautiful personality
• the veela come out as Bulgaria’s mascot and Y/N calls every Weasley man there and Harry pathetic for how they acted
• the veela come out again and Y/N pulls George back from jumping off the railing to impress the veela
• George gives her one look and is grounded, knowing he sees someone even better than a veela every day and decides he never wants to change that
• George tells Fred he likes Y/N and Fred is so excited about it, already planning ways to get them together
• However Fred never carried out his plans and George found himself absolutely hating the fact that Y/N was going out with a Hufflepuff sixth year named Bertram Aubrey
• “What kind of name is Bertram anyways?” George asks Fred immediately when he finds out “I don’t know mate, what kind of name is George?”
• George gets increasingly more angry because Y/N is spending less time with him and Fred and more time with Bertram Aubrey
• Harry does so well in the first task of the Triwizard Tournament that George lifts up Y/N in elation and spins her around, forgetting how angry he was with her
• Later Ron and Harry find Y/N in the common room staring off into space and after a lot of asking they get it out of her that she broke up with Bertram Aubrey because he was mad that Harry did better than Cedric and Y/N would not take that shit so she broke it off and now she didn’t feel so good about it because he was the only guy that ever told her she was pretty
• Ron and Harry had no idea how to deal with the situation so they tell Hermione who had already put 2 and 2 together after hearing her advice to Ginny and seeing how Y/N looked at the George last year and now all of a sudden was dating Bertram Aubrey
• Hermione inquisitively sends George Y/N’s way and Fred pretends he has to write home
• George knew one foolproof way to get Y/N to laugh, tickling
• Everyone that was present in Gryffindor tower that night knows that George and Y/N were in love with each other, with the exception of George and Y/N
• Mcgonogall announces the Yule Ball and Fred gives George a very hard nudge at the same time that Angelina Johnson gave Y/N a very hard nudge
• One week from the Yule Ball, Fred is going with Angelina, Y/N knows Hermione is secretly going with Victor Krum, Ginny is going with Neville, Harry and Ron have no idea what they’re doing the little gits, and both George and Y/N know who they want to go with but neither one wants to risk their friendship by making this bold move
• Fred overhears Y/N tell Hermione she doesn’t think she’s going to the Yule Ball because she couldn’t ask the person she wanted to go with
• “What Y/N, he’s totally in love with you!”
• “What if he really doesn’t like me that way and I ask him and then things get weird?”
• Fourth year Hermione tells sixth year Y/N to get over herself and ask him
• Fred tells his twin what he heard and assures George they were talking about him and devises a plan on how to ask Y/N to the Yule Ball for George
• The next morning Fred and George made sure they were at the Great Hall extra early for breakfast and Y/N went down to meet them with Angelina
• Y/N walks in and sees ginger hair at the staff table
• Y/N double-takes but that’s definitely George sitting in the headmaster’s chair as Dumbledore sits on the end, shoulders shaking slightly from laughter
• George sends Y/N a smirk and a wink and stands up and the whole Great Hall, that was full of giggles and talk of what George Weasley was doing in the headmaster’s chair fell silent
• Y/N made to sit down next to Angelina but George stopped her
• “Y/N!” He said regally
• Y/N couldn’t help but laugh at this situation, giggling, she stood her ground halfway to Gryffindor table, right in the center of the Great Hall
• “You cute little sweet girl that I’ve been blessed to call my best friend for six years now, would you do me the honor of allowing me to take the prettiest girl on earth to the Yule Ball?” He asked with the crooked smile that drove Y/N absolutely mad amidst gasps and awes from giggling girls
• She couldn’t help herself, she had too much cheek in her
• “Yeah, sure, who are you taking? I’ll let you take them” Y/N said. To her amazement, George grinned wider than ever as he shook his head and people all over the Great Hall laughed
• “You, silly. I want to take you to the Yule Ball.”
• He hopped down from behind the staff table and walked up to you with sunflowers in hand
• “Your favorite flowers, my lady” he said as he handed the bouquet to you
• “Thank you, sir” Y/N said, mock curtseying
• He got down on one knee “Will you go to the Yule Ball with me?”
• “Yes!” Y/N practically screamed as George stood and wrapped his arms around her waist
• Then Y/N grabbed both sides of his face and did what she had wanted to do since fourth year, pressed her lips against George’s in front of the entire Great Hall
• It was secretly both of their first kisses
• Spoiler alert: neither of them ever kissed another person besides each other for the rest of their lives
• Snape was disgusted at the staff table
• Everyone walked in on them kissing or cuddling or getting heated or just talking in each other’s arms at least twice
• Fred said he’d done it 56 times by November 17th 1995
• Hermione and Y/N arrived at Grimmauld Place the last week of winter holiday, escaped their parents claiming they wanted to get started studying O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s respectively
• Everyone knew they probably would start studying once they returned to Hogwarts, but they had business before then, George sent Y/N owls about Arthur Weasley and they were both immensely concerned about their friends
• George was delighted to see Y/N wearing the sunflower necklace he sent her for Christmas
• Y/N found George with his mini marauders map that she made him because she knew he missed it
• Sirius told them that they reminded him of a certain James and Lily Potter
• Sirius also told Fred he reminded him of himself- lonely forever and feeding off his friend’s and brother’s relationship
• Everyone but Fred laughed at that
• George sat Y/N down one day to tell her that eventually Fred and him were going to be making their grand escape from Hogwarts but he’d make sure it was as late as possible because he didn’t want to leave her and knew she wanted to finish her N.E.W.T. year to possibly become an auror
• Y/N understood and awaited the day it would happen
• It came when Harry said he wanted to talk to his godfather
• George found her and kissed her in the midst of all the chaos before Fred and George were caught by Umbridge
• That foul woman already took Quidditch from Y/N, Harry, Fred, and George because they wanted to fight some Slytherins, now she was going to take away George
• The next thing the Umbridge woman took was the D.A.
• Y/N always knew she didn’t like Marietta Edgecomb
• Ginny and Hermione kept her motivated to continue studying and stay at least vaguely happy while at school
• Lee Jordan was getting increasingly more sad as the absence of Fred and George grew longer
• Y/N went with Luna, Neville, Ginny, Harry, Ron, and Hermione to the Department of Mysteries
• George probably kissed every inch of her skin upon seeing her at King’s Cross, not only had he not seen her in <i>forever<i> but she could’ve died so that’s the first time he told her he loved her and the first time she said it back
• After graduation Y/N moved into a flat in London to stay close to the ministry that she had to go to every day for pre-auror training
• No one had gone into the office in three years, she was the only person training to become an auror, so her process was sped up
• Naturally, Y/N, Fred, and George joined the Order of Phoenix
• Y/N spent most night sleeping in the living space above Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes in George’s bed, and Fred kept asking why she didn’t just live with them
• So she moved in
• Christmas at the Burrow was the best thing she’d ever experienced, and with another week off of auror training, Y/N spent the last week of Hermione’s holiday at the Granger household
• Where she gave Hermione a lot of unhelpful boy advice for Ron
• Which didn’t work as well as they did for Ginny two years ago (she’d been out of the game too long)
• Y/N later received many letters of complaints from Hermione
• When Harry needed to be moved from the Dursleys’, Y/N did not hesitate to volunteer
• Y/N thought it was really weird to kiss Harry, and George thought the same, but when he hadn’t returned to the burrow by his designated time, she was glad she did kiss a Harry
• Y/N sat in the yard of the burrow, jiggling her leg, biting her lip, wringing her hands, and looking at Fred who was sitting next to her doing the same thing and who was telling her that George was fine- whether for her own sake or his
• Finally a shadow landed in the shrubs and Y/N was on her feet running without noticing she had moved until she looked at over at Fred doing the same
• Lupin was holding George up, the side of his head was bleeding, Y/N knew she’d never be a healer because she couldn’t stand how he looked do defenseless at the moment
• Maybe it was just because it was George and she loved George
• She couldn’t speak the entire time Mrs. Weasley worked on him, her and Fred watched in horror as she applied medicine after medicine
• When she was done Fred leaned towards his brother and asked “How are you feeling Georgie?”
• “Saintlike”
• “Come again?”
• “Saintlike. Get it? I’m holey!”
• Y/N let out a sigh of relief as she laughed more of relief than at George’s joke
• “In all the world of ear-related humor and you choose to say 'I’m holey’?”
• “Pathetic” Y/N spoke the first word she said since she had been Harry
• “Oh hey Y/N, what’s wrong? Looks like you’ve seen a veela” -George
• “Were you scared?” -George
• “Fred was more scared”
• “I believe it”
• Dancing at Bill and Fleur’s wedding when the patronus comes
• Whipping wands out as soon as it disappears
• Using anaticula on every death eater so that ducks come out of their wands when they say avada kedavra
• Bellatrix is about to attack George from behind and Y/N stuns her
• Y/N never stuns because she knows it hurts and she doesn’t want to stoop to death eater level
• She’d much prefer them to just be harmless but the hatred within her made her decide to stun
• The next day George proposes to Y/N out of the blue
• He didn’t have rings or anything but he’s known since first year that he wanted her to be in his life forever and there was a war so it’s now or never
• They go and get rings together
• Both George and Y/N are devastated over Fred’s death
• Their wedding doesn’t happen for another year after his death, after the war ended
• They gain their strength again from each other
• It gets easier every day and soon the sparkle is back in both of their eyes after a babysitting session Teddy Lupin
• And they want kids
• Fred was the ideal best man, but Ron became the best man at George’s wedding because he wasn’t there
• Hermione was the maid of honor
• Wendyl and Monica Wilkins had no idea what they were doing there but it felt strangely right
• Hermione couldn’t lift the memory charm but the Granger parents’ love for their daughters lifted it for her
• There was a picture of Fred on a table at an angle that overlooked the entire room
• Picture Fred gagged when George kissed the bride
• George and Y/N had two kids: Fred and Roxanne
• The Granger-Weasley family visits his grave each death anniversary
• Once on April 1st Draco Malfoy was heard to make a comment saying something to the effect of “April Fool’s, Fred’s still alive and celebrating his birthday without the rest of the large Weasley family”
• Y/N punched him
• Eventually George and Y/N healed to the point of being able to talk about Fred without the pain and they were truly happy, as they were when he was here
