we are dumbledores army

               A cheeky grin colored her face when she peered up at him.

“We got the idea from Dumbledore’s Army, to get–” she stopped suddenly, realizing she wasn’t speaking to a friend but to someone who last year had attempted to kill the namesake of their group.

               Annoyed, Draco crossed his arms and leaned back in his seat. Was this going to happen every time they tried to have an actual discussion? Draco, more than anybody, understood the need to display caution while speaking. But this was going to get ridiculous rather quickly. There was nothing they could share with each other that wouldn’t put the other person in a vulnerable position. And Draco had acknowledged that when he first decided to take part in this little… game with the youngest Weasley.

               But she was clearly unsure still.

               Draco knew that Ginny was much more guarded than her brother, that she watched her words carefully and could conceal her expressions when needed. But, nonetheless, she was still a Weasley. Obnoxious, excited, quick to temper, and proud. This wasn’t the first time she almost let something slip in front of Draco and he knew it wouldn’t be the last. But each time she stopped herself. If he was going to learn anything from her, he’d have to gain her trust more than he already had. As if rescuing her from near death wasn’t enough.

               Fighting the temptation to roll his eyes, Draco lazily waved his right hand, urging her to continue.

“I think we’re past the point of keeping secrets from each other, aren’t we?” he asked wryly.

               From the way her eyes narrowed, he assumed she didn’t agree.

Okay but why didn’t Harry go on to be the defense against the dark arts teacher at hogwarts? Like that would have been soooo good, we already know he’s more than capable of teaching because he taught Dumbledores army in ootp and was GREAT at it. It would just make sense too because the whole ~thing~ about hogwarts not being able to keep a DATDA teacher for more than a year, the story would feel more “full circle” if Harry got to keep that position filled for the rest of his life.

Also it would be a nice, big FUCK YOU to snape’s dead ass tbh like who better to teach post-wizarding war children about the dangers of the dark arts besides the actually Harry Potter? Idk Yall seems like a really good missed opportunity
