Imagine: Always butting heads with Fred Weasley, but when you two begin pranking together, you slowly fall in love.
“Hey Y/L/N,” You tilt your head up and see the Fred Weasley standing in front of you, alongside his twin brother. You were sitting on a lounging chair in the library, cuddled up with a book.
“Weasleys,” You nod, before turning back to your book.
“You’re looking pretty comfy in that chair, mind if I Slytherin next to you?” Fred winks.
You roll your eyes and deadpan, “I’d rather run my fingers through Snape’s greasy hair.”
George makes a face of utter disgust, and Fred mutters, “Suit yourself darling.”
You were a major troublemaker at Hogwarts, and though you were a year younger, that put you in constant competition with the Twins. You all knew you’d make an unbeatable team if you came into an alliance, but they were Gryffindors and you were a Slytherin, so teaming up was not even an option. Fred was the more outspoken brother, and that meant you two butted heads a lot more than you and George. He would never spare a chance to tease you, and you always had a sassy retort sitting on the tip of your tongue for him.
“Seriously though,” You close your book and look back at the boys, “What do you two want?”
“Help,” They shrug in unison.
“Help? What kind of help?” You’re suddenly more intrigued.
“It’s our last year at Hogwarts Y/N, and bloody Umbridge is ruining it!” Fred says, throwing his hands in the air, “We want revenge.”
“What makes you think I’d help you? I mean wouldn’t it be better for me to just rat you out and get on Umbridge’s good side?” You question, raising your eyebrows.
“Oh please Y/N, you’ve never been good at hiding your hatred for someone, and you hate her,” Fred responds, “Besides, if we work as a team, we’ll be undefeatable!”
“Fine,” You say, “Only because it’s Umbridge though.”
Over the course of the next few months you and the boys had began to drive Umbridge crazy. You pulled so many pranks on her, and you always got away with it because you never left behind evidence, and no one -not even the other professors- were willing to sell you out.
You had grown incredibly close to the boys, you kept mentally slapping yourself for not befriending them 7 years ago, but better late than never.
You still had the same sassy relationship with each other, but now you always had each others’ backs. George had become like a brother to you, as for Fred, you had slowly begun to fall for him. He had this amazing ability to always make you feel good about yourself and he always knew how to make you smile when you were feeling down. You were fairly successful at hiding your feelings for him, but George had eventually figured it out, lucky for you he was pretty decent at keeping secrets.
The year had gone by faster than any other school year before. It was final exam time and that meant it was final prank time. You had been planning your ultimate prank for months, but Fred and George hadn’t even told you exactly what it was. All you knew was that it involved fireworks and that they’d be leaving Hogwarts as soon as it was over.
You were preparing to go into the great hall for your Charms exam, when the boys stopped you. You sighed, “Are you guys ready?”
“We were born ready for this moment darling,” Fred smirked, “The real question is, are you ready?”
“Ready as I’ll ever be…” You drift off, “I just can’t believe you boys are leaving.”
“Now, now Y/N, don’t be getting sentimental,” George says as Fred loops his arm around your waist.
“You just have one year left, and with a free supply of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes products, you’ll be fine next year!” Fred says casually, the boys try to make you feel better by joking around as usual, but your eyes are already filling with tears.
You turn in Fred’s arm and wrap your own arms around his neck, hiding your face into his chest, “I’m gonna miss you boys so much!”
“Y/N,” Fred whispers, comfortingly rubbing circles on your back, “It’s going to be alright love!”
You pull away from him and hug George, he gives you a gentle squeeze before pulling away and drying your tears, “You’ll be seeing us all summer and you can come visit during the holidays. The year will go by faster than you think!”
You sit in the Great Hall, trying to focus on your exam when you hear the faint sound of fireworks in the distance. Umbridge opens the door to investigate and the brothers fly in on their broomsticks, scattering everyone’s exam papers across the room. Everyone cheers as the boys begin the firework show. After running Umbridge out of the room with their fiery dragon, Fred calls out to you. You turn your attention to him and he launches another firework, it bursts into the shape of your name with a heart around it.
You stare at it in awe and Fred flies down in front of you, “What’s this?”
“You know darling, I’m going to miss you a lot as well,” He takes you by surprise and presses his lips against yours, and the cheers of the students grow even more. He pulls away after a few magical seconds, “I know how you feel Y/N, and I’ll have you know, the feeling is mutual.”
How did he know?! You look up at George and he gives you a small wink, Fred places another gentle peck against you lips and then the boys fly away.
You sigh as the chaos dies down, this next year is never going to end.
