Ginny Lives Here
Title: Taking Sides
A/N: xposted to ginny_draco100 (with companion piece), slytherin100, and malfoy100
There was some stupid Muggle song that said Love changes everything. Draco begged to differ. War changed everything. Love was some silly notion, while war was power.
He'd taken his Dark Mark with no regrets, completed assignments with no remorse, and rose through Voldemort's ranks with no setbacks.
There was nothing to stop him from rising to the top, following in his lord's footsteps. Nothing, until she was thrown before him, bloody, bound, and beaten.
He could see it in her eyes. Fear, defiance. Love.
But they had both chose sides long ago.
He issued the order to kill her.
A/N: companion piece to above
They were in school and they were in love. And they were foolish.
Ginny honestly thought he would change, reject his family, and accept hers. He thought the same thing.
She refused to care when Ron told her he'd taken the Dark Mark.
She swore heart didn't hurt as she heard of him rising through the dark ranks.
Then when she was thrown before him, she saw herself in his eyes. Fear. Uncertainty. Love.
But she had chosen years ago, and so had he.
She bowed her head so he wouldn't see her tear as he issued the order.
