1 : Fluorescent Adolescent by greenbirds     Novel
Rating: Mature   Chapters: 15   Reviews: 312


banner by Takecare@tda



One would think that two individuals as different as Effy Wilderson, Ravenclaw seeker
and daydreaming extraordinaire- and James Potter, Gryffindor Captain and height
of arrogance- would want absolutely nothing to do with each other, whatsoever.

A story of high fliers, low whispers, shameless dancing and adolescent magnificence
of truly quite intoxicated measures.

It was simple enough:

2. Stay away from maybe-conspiracies possibly involving Death Eaters.
3. Do not, under any circumstances, piss off James Sirius Potter.
Unfortunately, transfer student Marley Belgarde didn’t get the memo.

"Did I just speak to Dominique Weasley in Dothraki?"
And then there's Fitz.

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.
