“It’s not really nice of you to treat girls like that Teddy. You shouldn’t fuck them and then be done with them! It’s not a very manly thing to do. You don’t want to be remembered like that.”

“But it’s fun. And… you didn’t seem to have a problem with it when you and Grandma Andy were doing that at my age. Oh, and Gramps Willy- your daughter is very fun to do stuff with!”

“I have something to tell you, Vicky.”

“Oh? What is it, Tedward? You look nervous.”

“Hah. I guess I am… I- I love you, Victoire.”

“Love you too, Lupin.”

“You do?”

“Um, yes? Obviously. You’re my best friend. What, do you expect me to hate you?”

“No. Not like that, Victoire. I love you. I love you.”

“… Bye, Teddy. Thanks for coming to my party, but I think it’s time for you to leave now.”

These are my parents, Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin. You might have heard of them, they died in the Battle of Hogwarts during the war. When I was younger, I was sad and angry at my parents- they just had me, so why go off fighting? But grandma Andromeda and Uncle Harry explained to me that they fought for me. During my school years I wanted to badly see them with the Resurrection Stone. I researched every way to bring back the dead- I tried books, potions, you name it. I even tried making my own potions, but after one or two blew up Andromeda stopped me and told me that if I tried it again, she would force the potions down my throat… *coughs* Anyway, I badly wanted to see my parents. I think I even creeped out grandma’s boyfriend with that, but yeah. Uncle Harry told me that my Dad’s best friend, Sirius, said that the ones who love us never really leave us and you can always find them in my heart.

Do I wish that I could have known my parents, and not just photographs of them that are trapped forever in a frame, waving endlessly? Yeah, I do. But I know that they’re always with me, and it’s all right.

Having William teach me how to drive was a very life scarring experience. Although Grandmum married a muggleborn she didn’t know how to drive, so she got The Panda to teach me. He must have been out of bamboo sticks, or whatever pandas like, because he ranted and screamed at me the whole damn time. I smoked a joint before he taught me and I told him so, but that’s the last time I ever do that… he nearly drove me to jail. It’s a good thing I have a charming, adorable smile.

“Andy, I’m home…”

[Teddy hears moaning noises from upstairs and his hair shifts to a puke green in disgust]

“… I’m going to Uncle Harry’s. You and your boyfriend are hypocrites, you know- well, he is. He flipped when he saw me snogging his daughter, but it’s perfectly okay to… I can’t even say it. Whatever. I’ll be back tomorrow, yeah? Love you, not so much your boyfriend and bye.”
