Rating: Mature   Chapters: 12   Reviews: 76


banner: holden@tda

Reserve Beater for the Tutshill Tornados. It sounded like a great career, but for Hollie Finnigan, it was a lot of bench warming and a chance for all of the people she ever told to ask, “Oh, so you know Roxanne Weasley? Can you get me her autograph?”

Hollie knew Roxanne alright. She was in love with her.

A story about love and lies, fame, and a little Quidditch.
