We've been expecting an announcement of marriage since we got news of Harry Potter's relationship with one Ginevra Weasley. According to friends and admirers, they were the perfect couple, a clear reminder of James Potter and Lily Evans during their last year of Hogwarts. All seemed to be going well, a relationship starting in Mr. Potter's sixth year, followed by the death of You-Know-Who at his hands. Mr. Potter, in a show of solidarity, went back to Hogwarts with the female part of the golden trio, Hermione Granger, and his own girlfriend, Ginevra Weasley. Incidentally, Ronald Weasley, the remaining part of said trio, skipped his own NEWTs and accepted the Ministry's proposal for Auror training. Life, it seemed, was going according to plan. Our Chosen One graduated with O's and EE's and his relationship seemed to flourish.
Until last night.
The house was booked with friends, acquaintances, the press and the so-called adopted family. The party was in full swing with presents, drinks, specially made cake and pastries, and all young ones having fun. Up until the end...when Ginevra blackmailed our Chosen One into singing.
And sing he did!
Three full songs, one right after the other, starting with 'It's a King of Magic' (by Muggle band 'Queen'), followed by 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' (the Beatles), and ending magnificently with a Muggle hit from a few years ago, 'Falling in Love' (by Muggle band Aerosmith). And that's where it ended for Mr. Potter and Miss. Weasley.
The song, which talks about cheating, the lack of a backbone and generally is the antitheses of the perceived relationship, was offered to Miss and Mrs Weasley, and the two women left quickly during the thunderous applause, leaving Mr. Potter in the company of Miss Hermione Granger and William and Fleur Weasley. Rumour now has it that Miss Weasley was cheating on our Saviour with a Mr. Smith and was refusing to accept the break-up. One can only hope that Miss Weasley can, hopefully, take the hint now.
