If you couldn't tell by now, I DON'T OWN HARRY POTTER OKAY? This time around I figured I would try a Slytherin wedding with Lucius Malfoy and Narcissa Malfoy. This chapter is a little alike and a little different from my Reflection of my Life fic I wrote nearly 2 years ago but (hopefully) better. Do not worry, all of you who suggested, I will use your pairings. Anyway, enough with this A/N, on with the fic!
Lucius was a noble man of noble birth. Narcissa knew this all too well. Her sister Bellatrix was the one who introduced them in the first place. Lucius knew her husband from their old days at Hogwarts and was good friends with Bellatrix. Lucius also knew Narcissa's beauty all too well. She was the most beautiful girl in her year, so even asking her out was hard to do and lucky if she would date you. Narcissa was picky when it came to the boys she would date. They had to be Pure Blood, have a noble line and be one of the tops in their class. Narcissa knew that her line was one that many of the noble boys would love to stake their claim into and wed. However, the Black girls were ones that also had an envious beauty to them; even Bellatrix was considered the prettiest Slytherin in her year. Now Narcissa, as the baby Black girl, was using every technique she learned from Bellatrix and Andromeda to find herself the most noble and available boy in Hogwarts.
"You know something Julia; I pledge to have one marriage proposal by the end of the 7th year." Narcissa said as she combed her long, brilliant blonde hair as she got ready for some of her classes at the beginning of her 7th year.
"You got another owl from that Lucius guy who just graduated Hogwarts. I remember you seeming to cozy up to him at the Yule ball last year." Julia said as she put on her robes.
"I know. I have to make this serious. The Malfoy family is one of the most noble and pure wizarding families in Britain. You know he brought me to his manor this past summer." Narcissa said.
"Wow." Julia said. "You're lucky Cissa."
"Yeah?" Narcissa asked. "How so?"
"Well, you are going out with Slytherin's most eligible bachelor in the decade. He has a lot of money, the Pureblood Slytherin himself desired in his students. Also, to put the icing on the cake, he is the most handsome boy Hogwarts has seen in awhile. Like I said Cissa, you're really lucky." Julia said as she started to put some hair potion in her hair. Julia then put her books in her bag and flung it over her shoulders. "Well, let's go to Transfiguration."
"Okay." Narcissa said with a depressed scowl. She hated McGonagall with a passion. She was only going for N.E.W.T in Transfiguration because she heard rumors of her cousin Sirius being an unregistered Animagus. With rumors like that and the scores her older sisters got on their N.E.W.T exams, put a lot of pressure on the young Narcissa Black to meet or beat those scores to maintain the honor of the most ancient and noble house of Black. "I can't wait to take the N.E.W.T.s so I don't have to mess with that subject for awhile."
"I know Cissa, I know." Julia sighed as she headed to the classroom.
After a double period of one of the most horrid subjects Wizarding kind had ever known in her opinion, Narcissa and Julia headed to the Library for some research and time to work on their homework. McGonagall had assigned them a 4 foot essay on the possible dangers of misused human Transfiguration and why it should only be attempted by those who have mastered it. Narcissa always had a bad habit of doodling and writing love poems in her notes, causing her to have to copy a lot off of Julia, with a slight twist in the words to make it look like her work and write it rather largely. She often scraped 'Acceptable' but sometimes got an 'Exceeds Expectations' that way. Narcissa took out a copy of Transfiguration Today and made it look like she was working on the essay when really she had a copy of last February's Witch Weekly and read the valentines article on "Making Your Wizard Commit." She was writing down notes when she heard a foot tapping behind her in a rather impatient manner.
"Ummm… can I help you Madame Pince?" Narcissa asked.
"Do you mind putting that…" Madame Pince looked down at Narcissa's Witch Weekly with distain. "…disgusting publication away and doing your work Miss Black. Professor McGonagall told me about you."
"What is your matter Pince?" Narcissa said as she took her haughty attitude to Madame Pince, something she was well known for. "You so lonely that you despise when a much prettier witch is trying to get her man to commit to me?"
"WHY YOU!" Madame Pince said as she waved her wand and made a bunch of erasers, quills, and rolls of parchment, beat on Narcissa and Julia until they left the library and was half way to the Great Hall for lunch.
As they sat down, Julia had a rather nasty annoyed look on her face. "I was this close-"she held her fingers a millimeter apart. "-from having the one book that would write our reports for us practically and then you go piss off that old hag spinster Pince, nice going Narcissa."
"Sorry." Narcissa said as an eagle owl fluttered down in front of her. "It's Lucius's owl." She then grabbed the ornate gold edged envelope as the owl flew off. "It must be important…"
"Well, read it!" Julia said.
"'My dearest Narcissa, I must profess to you something of the utmost importance to me. You said you have a Hogsmede weekend this coming one, meet me at Madame Puttifoot's for tea and almond cookies and a special gift. Hugs and kisses XOXOXO Lucius'" Narcissa read.
"Oh Merlin!" Julia said. "It's big! Lucius wouldn't send the best of the best if it wasn't!"
"I sure hope so." Narcissa said.
After a week of anticipation, Narcissa put on her best dress for heading into Hogsmede, best perfume and best earrings and headed out to Madame Puttifoot's. Once there, she saw Lucius sitting at their favorite table smiling as she walked over to him. "Hi, my love." Narcissa said with a giggle.
"Ah, Narcissa! You are the most beautiful girl of the Black family." Lucius said as he stroked her hand. "Care for Tea and a cookie?"
"Yes please." Narcissa said as she added her sugar and milk. "What is it? You sent a very ornate letter, rather unusual for even you my dear." She then took a sip and went "mmmmmmmmmm….Madam Puttifoot's had some really good tea."
"I know." Lucius said. "I have been speaking with my family and told them how much you mean to me. They all agree with my decision."
"What is it?" Narcissa asked in fear. Part of her knew what he was going to say next, but part of her was also scared that it was not going to be what she wanted to hear.
"Well, I got a hold of the Malfoy ring my mother had, as it is tradition for when a Malfoy male decides to ask their girlfriend this question." Lucius then pulled out the ring and bent down on one knee in front of Narcissa.
"Oh Lucius…" Narcissa gasped.
"Narcissa Persephone Black, will you marry me?" Lucius asked.
"Oh yes my Lucius darling!" Narcissa said as she put the emerald and silver ring on her finger.
"It fits like a dream." Lucius said kissing Narcissa's hand.
(Page break to the following August)
Narcissa stood in the Malfoy's guest house with Bellatrix and Julia and all the women in the Malfoy family. The women were all helping her get dressed and look as beautiful as she could for the love of her life.
"You look marvelous Cissy, much more beautiful than when I married my husband." Bellatrix said.
"Thanks Bella." Narcissa said. "And you did look lovely."
"Lucy my boy will love you." Mrs. Malfoy said.
"Thanks…" Narcissa said as she put on her goblin made tiara with a gossamer veil attached to it on. "Why do you call Lucius 'Lucy'?"
"Oh, you'll understand when you have children yourself. Lucius was my little boy and I always found it funny to call him Lucy. It's a mother thing. Oh and PS: I am the only person who can call Lucius "Lucy"" Mrs. Malfoy giggled. "Anyway, I have to see to the preparations."
Mrs. Malfoy then headed out and looked around in the garden. House elves from everyone related to the Malfoys were serving out nettle wine, oak matured mead and Butterbeer for those too young for alcoholic drinks. Some of the other elves were serving out caviar, crackers covered in goat cheese and lamb appetizers. She then walked up to her son and patted her on the back. "Lucy, you got yourself a good girl there. Nice Pureblood and Slytherin too."
"Mother, please do not call me 'Lucy' in front of Regalius." Lucius whispered embarrassed.
"Ah, Lucius." Mrs. Malfoy said. She then turned to a minister beside him. "You will do a good job here, I presume?"
"I will." He said.
"You better because I know people." Mrs. Malfoy said walking off.
"Don't worry." The wedding minister growled. Soon after this, the wedding march began to play and Narcissa began walking down the isle being held by her father followed by her sister Bellatrix and her friend Julia. Lucius took a gulp at his wife-to-be's beauty in a pure white gown with emerald trim and goblin made tiara and gossamer veil.
"You look handsome my love," Narcissa smiled surveying Lucius with great interest.
"You look beautiful as always my darling Narcissa." Lucius whispered.
"Okay, let us begin!" The wedding minister said. "Now who gives this woman to be married?"
"I do, Vlad Hancock Black give my daughter Narcissa Persephone Black to be married." Narcissa's father said.
"Okay, let's get this show on the road!" The minister said. "Do you, Lucius Cain Malfoy take Narcissa Persephone Black to be your wife, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, richer or poorer, for better or for worse till death do you part?"
"I do." Lucius said with a great pride as he stroked Narcissa's cheek kissing it.
"Hey, hey, hey! Can't you wait a few minutes for that?" The minster yelled.
"No." Lucius smirked as Narcissa blushed.
The minister then turned to Narcissa. "Do you take Narcissa Persephone Black take Lucius Cain Malfoy to be your husband, to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, richer or poorer, for better or for worse till death do you part?"
"I do." Narcissa said looking into Lucius's eyes with a glowing pride in her eyes
"Okay." The minster said as he turned to Lucius. "Place the ring on her left hand."
Lucius took the ring from Regalius and caressed Narcissa's hand and kissed it before he slipped the Malfoy family ring onto his newlywed wife's hand.
"I now pronounce you bonded for life." The minister said as a shower of golden stars fell on them both. "You may kiss the bride. I told you it wouldn't be long you impatient pants." Lucius then pulled Narcissa close and kissed her deeply and passionately. They then turned to the crowd watching the wedding.
"May I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Lucius Malfoy." The Minster said as they smiled.
"Cissy, you scored better than I did." Bellatrix said as she elbowed Narcissa.
"I know." Narcissa Malfoy said sticking her nose up haughtily.
Well how was that? Was everyone in character? If not, let me know so I can make these so much better! I am now working on the grand chapter 10 out of the 25 chapters. Once again, suggestions are welcomed. I may even branch out into yaoi and yuri, slash and femmslash. (As a writer I want a challenge) Just suggest a pairing and I will do it, refer to previous chapters for what I will not do. Remember to read (well you just did) and review and suggest pairings. They can be cannon or not. I mean as we all know cannon can get boring in the world of fanfiction. Also remember, NO FUCKING SPAM!!!!!! I AM TIRED OF SPAM!!!!!!!! Anyway, Ciao for now,
