Recipient: [info]anguis_1
Author/Artist: [info]cardigrl
Title:Daring to Love
Pairings:Millicent Bulstrode/Vincent Crabbe
Word Count:4325
Warnings:AU in that Vincent is alive, UST, Frequent Snape References
Summary:Learning to live is hard. Daring to love is even harder. A post-Hogwarts short story featuring hurt/comfort as Millicent, Vincent and Greg struggle to make a life for themselves on their own terms.
Author's/Artist's Notes:Thanks to my wonderful beta who made this a much better fic than it otherwise would have been. I really hope you like this, [info]anguis_1. I'm sorry for the lack of smut, but they are cautious people, these characters. And I hope you don't mind the liberal Snape references. I picture Millie especially as someone who learned to internalize things and be cautious in what she says. And Millie had a lot of thinking to do. So we see some past events through a Millie filter instead of canon's Harry filter.
