Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter. Seriously.
A/N: Written for Challenge #199 ~ Celebration at femslash100.
A/N2: A sequel to 'Stop Falling', 'To Watch As You Leave', 'My Heart Is Conditioned to the Beat of Hers', 'Our Bitter Happily Ever After', 'I Wait With Bated Breath (For You to Envelop Me)', 'Dance With Me' and the incomplete 'Listen to Your Heart'. With mentions of characters (in order of appearances) from 'In The Dead of Night (With No One Watching)', 'All Behind Closed Eyelids', 'Kisses and Spices', 'My Heart Was A Bruised Object'.
A/N3: The prompt just inspires me to write something celebratory in nature. I was also reminded that I didn't do anything particularly special for IDF so I hope a drabble chock-full with femslash pairings can make up for that. It is a little rushed, the drabble I mean, and I hope it's still okay. Either way, please review!
A/N4: Check out Femslash Ficathon 2009 if you haven't!
"Are you sure I look okay in this?" Cho asks as she picks at her dress nervously.
Padma suppresses a sigh as she says once again, "You look absolutely breathtaking, sweetheart. Now, will you please stop fidgeting? They should be starting the ceremony any time now."
"I wouldn't have to convince you not to leave Fleur at the altar, would I?" Ginny asks in what she hopes sounds like a serious tone, though she has to fight hard to keep the smile off of her face.
"Funny," Hermione says dryly, "I've always wanted a funny best friend."
Ginny smiles and says more sincerely, "I cannot be happier for you." She catches Pansy's eye and corrects herself, "We really cannot be happier for you."
"Why must you choose this blue?" Gabrielle grumbles as she picks up her older sister's bouquet.
"You look fine in that blue, Gabrielle," Fleur says patiently.
"I think you look gorgeous, Gaby," Tonks tells her girlfriend fondly. "I really think so." She leans down to whisper in her girlfriend's ears, "And I'm sure you'd look even more gorgeous when the time comes for me to undress you."
Fleur slaps her hands over her ears and shouts, "Why must you do that?! I'm still in the room!"
Gabrielle scoffs. "Like you can pretend to be so chaste yourself. Our beach house has really thin walls and I must insist that you cast a Silencing Charm the next time the two of you come for a visit."
"Do you, Hermione Jean Granger, take this woman, Fleur Isabelle Delacour, to be your wife, your best friend, your everything in health and in sickness, in happiness and in sadness, in everything that life throws at you?"
"Do you, Fleur Isabelle Delacour, take this woman, Hermione Jean Granger, to be your wife, your best friend, your everything in health and in sickness, in happiness and in sadness, in everything that life throws at you?"
"By the power vested in me, I proclaim you wife and wife, best friend and best friend -"
"Just kiss already!" Ginny hisses from where she is standing. When everyone turns around to stare at her, Ginny's eyes widen comically. "Did I say that out loud?" she asks Gabrielle, who is standing next to her. Gabrielle looks too shocked to actually answer.
Hermione chuckles and speaks just loudly enough for Fleur to hear, "You heard the lady. Just kiss me already."
"I heard her just fine," Fleur whispers back, "and I intended to do that from the start." Wrapping an arm about Hermione's waist and pulling her close, Fleur asks, "Starting to doubt me already?"
"Never. Now shut up and kiss me."
