When: Wednesday evening
Status: Incomplete

Charlie's friends had started drifting in since the previous day from Romania. Lavender had looked a little overwhelmed when they first started to appear and started setting up the tents on the lawn. Rosie, on the other hand, had been charming the socks off most of them.

Just before they all Apparated to the pub near the Welsh reserve, Charlie gave Lavender a kiss good night and confirmed that Ron was meeting them there. He laughed as she told him to look after Ron. He appeared in the pub to a loud cheer.

Ron joined in the cheer when Charlie appeared in the pub. Charlie was getting married, as strange as that still sounded. Ron had his formal robes all ready and waiting for the ceremony at Hogwarts and he had even booked a haircut especially (although Molly Weasley's nagging had played a part in that).

He grinned at Charlie's slightly dazed expression. "This man needs a drink," he announced.

Charlie laughed as he clapped Ron on the back. "Will you be getting that ot will I have to put my hand in my ppocket?" he teased.

He squeezed onto the packed table and said "Thank you all for coming. I wasn't expecting all of you but the more the merrier really." He looked round and saw most of the tamers from the Wlesh reserve and all of the ones from the Romanian base and he tried to hide his amusement as he saw some of the other inhabitants looking slightly overwhelmed.

"Of course I'm bloody buying," Ron grumbled half-heartedly. He disappeared over to the bar while Charlie sat down and returned a moment later, placing a fruity-looking cocktail with an umbrella down in front of his brother.

Grinning, he asked, "What? Isn't that your usual?" before putting down a pint.

Charlie looked at it and then looked at Ron. He smiled sweetly and said "Only in here, it is. I have a reputation to maintain."

A round of shots of vodka appeared on the table in front of them and Charlie managed to slip one in Ron's pint. He felt an elbow in his ribs and John boy hissed in his ear "Never said that your brother swung that way."

Charlie whispered back. "Didn't know until recently. Go for it," he smirked.

Zach got a drink for himself and a shot for Charlie at the bar and looked for the party. He spotted the rowdy party and went over, a smile on his face. He was looking forward to seeing Ron and was trying not to remember his hot night with Harry. Idly, he wondered if Harry would show...

He went over to Charlie and set the shot down in front of him. "Congratulations, Charlie. I hope you have a lifetime of happiness with Lavender." Looking around, he almost fell on the floor when he saw the gorgeous woman in Ron's lap. "Nice to see you, Ron. It looks like you're having fun."

Charlie grinned and said “Thanks for the drink.” He downed the drink and then saw the expression on Zach’s face. “Zach, these are a couple of my friends from the reserve – Desi and John boy. They were just asking why Ron never came to visit me when I was working over in Romania.”

This was going to be interesting as John looked like he was sniffing around Ron.

Zach quickly got a hold of himself and schooled his expression into something much more friendly. "Nice to meet you all." He stole a chair from another table and sat down, Taking a healthy swig of his drink. "I'd be interested in why Ron never went to Romania as well. I enjoyed my travels and I can't imagine why he wouldn't have taken the opportunity."

Charlie laughed. "I'm not sure either. But I've seemed to end up with the itchy feet in the family, so that could be it."

He wrinkled his nose as he sipped his drink. "Although trying to sleep whilst a dragon is having very noisy sex a few feet away is not everyone's cup of tea."

Harry entered the seedy pub and grimaced slightly. He'd been to worse places trying to find anything that compared to the night he had with hannah and Zach. He was hurt that niether one contacted him after that night.

A quick scan of the interior of the pub was all he needed to find several redheads clustered together. He started acrosss the pub and saw a very familiar blond standing woodenly just at the edge of the group with his eyes locked on to something that was obviously bothering him.

Harry made a quick decision and went up to Zach and pulled him into his arms and kissed him. His tongue slipped past Zach's surprised lips and he stroked Zach's tongue with his own. After a moment he released Zach and looked back to the group staring at them. Harry wrapped an arm around Zach's waist and pressed himself to the taller man's side.

"Hullo Charlie," he said with a grin, "Congratulations on finally tying the knot. Hullo Ron, long time."

Zach just stood there, in shock. The feeling of Harry's kiss and their night together were burned in his memories. He really wanted a relationship and it seemed like Ron wasn't interested or else didn't want him. Was it possible that Harry could be what he had been looking for all along?

After another few moments of thought, he leaned into Harry and whispered in his ear, "We need to talk later. But that has to be the nicest hello I've received in a long time." Zach blushed as he said it, his arm coming around Harry's waist as well.

Ron was admittedly a little relieved when Desi got her own seat, but he couldn't help but feel a flash of hurt when he saw Harry kiss Zach. Then again, Zach and Harry could kiss whoever the bloody hell they wanted. He hadn't exactly made a move on Zach, had he? Even with Zach's flirting he hadn't responded.

"Hey, Zach. Harry."

I'm fucked up, Ron thought, taking a long drink of his pint. Watching Zach with Harry, though, he was actually a little glad that he hadn't. Zach seemed to be the sort of person who wanted a proper relationship and Ron had never been good at relationships.

It was quite a relief to realise all this.

Sipping his drink and cast a glance at John. He'd be going back to Romania after the wedding. Hundreds of miles away. Ron frowned to himself as he thought about this. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

John had been watching all of this with mild amusement and finally turned to Ron.

"There I was thinking that reserve relationships were complicated. All this looks far too complicated to me - care to enlighten me on some of this tangled web?"

He satrted playing with the edge of his glass.

"I'm glad you enjoyed it," Harry replied softly, as he let his fingers crawl under Zach's shirt to stroke the small strip of flesh that he'd uncovered.

Harry wondered what zach wanted to talk about. He caught a waitress' attention and ordered himself a drink. He sipped his drink while he surveyed the crowd around them.

Charlie nodded hello to Harry. "Nice to see you mate. Long time no see." He eyed where Harry's had was resting.

"Things have obviously been happening since I last saw you."

Draco looked around at the pub and smirked at seeing a group of men clearly enjoying themselves. He looked over at his companion and allowed a full on grin, "I wonder if there will be an exotic dancer," he said aloud.

Blaise looked at the scene in front of them, a drink in hand. "Well," he drawled, "The only woman with them is the one draped all over Ron and I don't think she looks like the exotic dancer type. Is that Potter and Smith? They look pretty cozy, don't they?" he raised an eyebrow as he tilted his head toward the pair.

Draco waved off Blaise's observation about Potter, "Potter's romantic entanglements are hardly something for me to care about," he said as he walked towards Charlie. He turned to Blaise, "I will say this though, I thought Smith was smarter."
From: quiet_italian Date: June 29th, 2006 05:43 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Blaise barely contained a chuckle as he followed Draco. "From what I understand, he was interested in Ron, but it looks like that didn't work out. Of course, Potter is the better lookin gof the two and I hear he has some wild tendencies, so that might have intrigued Smith. He has some interesting tastes of his own..."

Fred walked into the pub. This seemed a bit boring to be a stag party, which meant that now was the time to fix things.

"Fred's here, the party can start!" Clutching two bags to his chest, he began passing out lewd favors, saving a very special one for his brother, Charlie.

"Here ya go, specially made for the victim, I mean, lucky man. One slightly alter patented day dream charm. Hope you like her. Her name is Cindi."

Draco raised an eyebrow, "You keep any and all of your products away from me," he said with warning in his voice. He had been on the receiving end of the twins sick humor more than once in the past.

"Why Draco, I'm shocked. You think that I would do something to you." Fred laughed at the wary blonde. He had that look. The look that people who knew him or George for longer than 10 minutes would give him. It almost promised retribution. Almost.

"All I've got on me are a few slightly alter patented day dream charms. Don't think the soon-to-be-new Mrs. Weasley would approve if her future husband came home covered from head to toe in glitter and goo, now would she? Lighten up a bit Malfoy, you may just enjoy it."

Fred handed a bright Slytherin green box to Draco.

He looked at the green box in his hand and then over at Blaise, "You open it," he said pushing the box towards him.

Charlie examined the daydream charm and gave Fred a Look. "I may be slightly pissed but I'm not stupid. I taught you how to make these and I'd rather just have a hangover tomorrow."

He suddenly smiled maliciously "You haven't told Mum about your new job yet, have you?"
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 06:13 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"Look, after all the experimenting with new ingreedients, I've got the formula for these suckers down to a fine science. Besides, there's been a few modifications and no one will suffer, Order's Honor."

Fred shook his head at his older brother. His older brother for goodness sake.

"As for the job, no. I haven't gotten around to telling much of anyone. The green houses were repaired, but still quite a mess. Trying to get them in order is killing me. Plus, half of the plants that I've ordered haven't come in yet. And if you even think of telling mum before I do, I'll end you and make it look like an accident."

Charlie widened his eyes. "I wouldn't dream of it. It was just that who knows what might sleep out."

He prodded at the box and then tapped with his wand to check for any surprises
