HP drabble: Dispatches [George/Lee, general]
Title: Dispatches Author: celandineb Fandom: HP Pairing: George/Lee Rating: general Warnings: character death Summary: George needs Lee now more than ever. Note: At this point I don't know if there will be more in the Dissonance series, or not; it began as an exploration of the three-way dynamic, and now that is finished. I'll just have to see what my muse does.
Lee's shoulder throbs where a Stinging Hex struck him; he can't even remember why he is limping. Instinctively he heads across the Great Hall toward the cluster of redheads, realizing halfway there that something is terribly wrong. Fred's body is laid out, with all his family gathered around, and Lee hovers uncertainly a few yards away. When he sees George – George who has always laughed at everything – raise one trembling hand and bite down on his knuckles, Lee cannot pretend he's not part of this. He steps to George and holds him tightly, letting them both mourn for their loss.
