Pairing: Draco Malfoy x Hermione Granger Prompt: Day 4: Traditions for @dhrfaves
Notes: Modern, non-magical college AU because apparently, I’m trash? Also, it was never a thing I thought I’d ever be into, but HA HA HA we have the best writers ever. [hangs head] Deck me.
Hermione Granger has always lived a highlighter-and-ruler, bullet-point and color-coding life. She’s an excellent record-keeper, has an A+ memory - she’s her own awesome executive assistant, basically; Donna Paulsen would be proud. Anal-retentive has been tossed around both as a pat-on-the-head, condescending endearment (Ron and Harry) and as an insult (everyone else), but, like - so what?
Summa cum laude takes effort, and like - she enjoys it, to be honest, the proverbial “stick” up her behind. Enjoys the text-book print of her planner, the neatness, the aesthetic. And besides, it’s not like, a disorder or anything, it’s not something that she had to sit across a couch to figure out. And, occasionally, she throws her plans up in the air, so. It’s all well and good, do come off it, Harry.
If anything, this passionate attempt to keep to her plans and schedules, this regimented state of being, it helps her keep with tradition - like the pre-game vodka-and-ketchup ritual for the boys, and the spring break pursuit of “protecting ladies from Broodingly Soulful Young Men” drunk-blogging with Fleur, and, for tonight, the anticipated New Year’s Eve pinwheel tournament.
Before I knew you
I read books
Sang along to songs
I watched movies with characters that all reminded me of you
before I knew you
I envisioned kissing your lips
Holding your hands
Wiping your tears
telling you secrets
Laughing at your jokes
And running my fingers through your hair
before I met you
We shared moments
Summer’s here moments
Before I knew you
I learned to love you
We broke up early on in the year and recently reconnected.. Today he asked me to be his girlfriend again and I couldn’t be happier. He lives in Sweden and goes to school in Florida, I live in New York and go to school in Connecticut, but we’re going to make it work because distance can split apart soul mates.. See you spring break baby
