The HPFF Dobby Awards: Winner - Most Addicting (2017)

The HPFF Dobby Awards: Winner - Best Romance (2017)

(c) satellite @ tda | Dobby Winner 2017: Best Romance & Most Addicting Fic!

For two as different (and yet united in their faults) as James Potter, Gryffindor Quidditch
captain, arrogance extraordinaire; and Effy Wilderson, Ravenclaw seeker of sharp-tongued,
often unnecessary wit; they did seem to spend a lot of time together.

A story of high flying, low whispers, lack of common sense and
an intoxicatingly raw, fluorescent teenage magnetism

She grinned at me, heisting the black sports bag further up her shoulder. "Do you fancy spending a Sunday afternoon in the Gryffindor common room?"

And we looked at each other. I stroked his cheekbone, feeling the roughness of the underlying stubble, and he stroked my hair, his fingers grazing my left temple.

"Fine," I said, and he smirked. "Perhaps I fancy you a little."

I burst out laughing, and I couldn't stop, not when he demanded it, not when he pleaded, but only when his lips came crashing down onto mine, and we stood there, in the middle of the street, under the falling snow, kissing like it was the first time.

"Right then," said Mikey. "So you'll pretend to be Scorpius's mum?"

The night went on, and Mikey and Jasmine slowly sobered up, therefore the conversation got generally deeper, as we asked for more and more refills of ice-cream.

"Wilderson," said a throaty voice. It sounded relieved and almost apologetic.

"No, Wilderson," he said, his tone gentler, his cool fingers grazing my arm, and then grasping slightly tighter when I didn't sit back down. "Stay. You should stay."

But like Albus I was drunk, drunk, wildly excited from the summer heat of the night and intensely exhilarated from the throbbing music, the loud noise around, the darkness of the party and the sensational freedom of being young and free and fluorescent in my adolescence.
