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.

"Reputation?" Ron teased. "I thought your reputation used to be as a carefree bachelor." He sighed dramatically. "Oh, how things change."

He took a sip of his drink, grimacing slightly when he realised Charlie had put a shot in it.

Charlie made a face at him. "I prefer stud muffin but," he shrugged. "Up to you what you call me. Never had any complaints whatssoever."

There was laughter at this commnet. Desi made a smart alec comment of "Except for that Romanian girl a few years ago,. Her brothers nearly had your balls as a table decoration." Chalrie joined in the laughter and waved his hand "But she didn't complain, did she?"

Ron pulled a face. "I'm not calling you a stud muffin," he retorted. "Although what was it we used to call you when you were younger?"

He snorted. "Not that it matters. You're getting old now," he teased. "And soon you'll be an old married man." This was probably the best chance Ron would get to tease Charlie for a while. Although did planning to show baby pictures at the wedding reception count as teasing?

"People also have tended to call me God." Another roar of laughter. John boy ruffled Charlie's hair. "Clearly the smelly feet and the face didn't put them off."

An audible mutter said "Only thing going for him is that he's good with his hands."

Ron snorted. "I'm still not sure what Lavender sees in him. I mean, she could have had me." He grinned at Charlie. "Not that it would have worked, mind..."

Someone said, "Well like we said, he's good with his hands." Hohn boy gave Ron a side long look.

"Maybe Lavender was doing you a favour. Her loss really." Charlie took an affectionate swipe at him and took another sip of his drink. This drink was going to go straight to his head if he wasn't careful.

Someone else down the table added, "I bet the only thing he uses his hands for these days is changing nappies."

Ron chuckled into his drink and then looked around the table. "Right. Before we all get too pissed to remember, I propose a toast." He held up his glass. "To Charlie."

There was a mumer of agreement followed by a clinking of glasses. There came a voice from down the table, which sounded like Rhys, said "Drink up Charlie boy. You'll be drinking a lot more before the night is out."

He gave a micheavious smile and said "And I hope you're wearing clean pants." Charlie suddenly looked wary.

Ron almost wished that they had a camera to capture the expression on Charlie's face. Then again, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to capture this stag party on film.

"What's the matter, Char?" Ron asked innocently. "Did you think we were just going to sit here all night?"

CHarlie made a face and said "Leave me tied in the middle of nowhere and none of you are getting fed until the wedding."

He looked a little smug and said to ROn. "Well, if my kecks are coming off, so are yours. You're worse at drinking games than I am."

Ron pulled a face. "Please. I'm not taking anything off. Anyway, you're the groom. That sort of behaviour is expected."

He nudged Charlie with his elbow. "Anyway, I've got to have embarrassing stories about you to tell to Rosie when she's older."

John looked Ron up and down and said "You might not being taking anything off but I might."

Charlie stifled a laugh by swallowing very quickly and nearly choked. "Rosie is going to be a daddy's girl and won't believe you."

Ron flushed at John's comment. That was... forward. "Will you? We'll see." He took a quick sip of his drink, hoping that he wasn't blushing too much.

"Of course she'll believe me. I'm her cool Uncle Ron." He sniffed. "And, if she doesn't believe me, I'll bribe her with sweets."

John leered slightly at him. "Yeah, we definitely will." Charlie elbowed him in the ribs. "Turn it down it a little, will you."

He drained his drink and leaned back. "Yeah, and then you'll get to put her to bed when she's as high as a kite."

Ron shook his head, still a little bemused by John's comments.

"No, no, no. If she's a daddy's girl then she'll only want to be put to bed by her daddy." That was Ron's logic and he was sticking to it. "Or we could just hand her over to Lav."

Charlie raised an eyebrow at that line of logic and left it. “Oh she’ll love you for that.” Another drink was plonked down in front of him by Desi.

“Get that down your throat,” she said. Charlie nodded his thanks as she sat down on Ron’s lap. She propped her elbows on the table and asked “It is decidedly more tacky to have a stripper come out of a cake than it is to go to a strip joint, isn’t it?”

Charlie just looked at her in confusion.

Ron glanced around in confusion when Desi decided to sit down on his lap. She couldn't exactly mistake him for a seat, could she? He decided to just leave her be seeing as she wasn't squashing his legs or anything.

When Desi looked to him to see if he would answer her question, Ron shrugged. "Er. I don't really know. Not my area of expertise."
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: June 29th, 2006 10:23 am (UTC) (Tags)
She wrinkled her nose. “What is your area of expertise, then?” She looked at him and asked “Sorry, I didn’t catch which one you are. You’re not Ginny and you’re not Bill.”

Charlie managed to recover enough to say “You’re right. Out of a cake does seem a bit more tacky.” Desi grinned and called down the table “I win. Spearmint Grindylows it is.”

"Ron," he supplied, and then added, "The good-looking one," even though he knew Charlie would take the piss out of him for saying it. He didn't bother to answer her other question, although he did spot John grinning.

There was a groan from the other end of the table and a couple of coins came rolling down the table, which Desi gleefully pocketed. "Drink up, boys!" she announced.

Charlie rolled his eyes and said wryly “Modesty isn’t his strong point either.” He drained his drink and glanced at his watch. “It’s a bit early to be going there, isn’t it?”

Desi finished her drink and said, in a pleased voice, “Yeah, but there’s a bar next door. Forget the name.”

“The Leprechaun,” interjected John.
From: a_roaring_lion Date: June 29th, 2006 11:16 am (UTC) (Tags)
Ron pulled a face. "The Leprechaun?" That was certainly an interesting choice. He downed what was left of his drink and had to wait for Desi to stand before he got up.

"Come on, Char," he said, clapping a hand on his brother's shoulder, "I think there are some tequila shots with your name on."
