"Our little secret"

Three magical words

that were

m~u~s~i~c

to young Ginny's ear

In a family of Quidditch

enthusiasts,

it was only natural

that she so strongly

desired

to fly

to kick

to throw

to catch

just as her brothers could

But

she was the precious

"PRINCESS"

she never asked to be

She would've much rather been the

p.a.g.e – b.o.y

with dirt smudged on her cheek

So making this one friend in her first year

(forget all the hell that happened, just forget it)

was more than she could

a s k for

& Alicia was happy to

o-b-l-i-g-e

Angelina thought Ginny was funny

(aw, she wants to be like her brothers)

Katie thought Ginny was young

(these are big wizards'—& witches'—games)

Alicia

saw

how earnest Ginny was

(I feel the same way about it!)

And though the (only) Weasley daughter had

t;a;l;e;n;t

where the Spinnet girl had

experience

Alicia took that raw power & molded it into a

SUPERNOVA

Ginny would no longer be

the r_o_o_k_i_e

but Ali wouldn't be there

much longer

So Gin made a wager—

If…If she let these morethanteammates feelings flourish

& this S_E_C_R_E_T grow…

then maybe Alicia wouldn't be gone as fast as they first thought

Sweet. Very sweet. I think Alicia is underrated. It's always either Ange or Kat, but Ali gets little face time. Well, I like her. And I hope you felt that way, too, through this FV.

Thanks for reading, and please review!

2017 note: I'm still fond of Alicia and still insist she's underappreciated…though I think there's some murkiness in the timeline here… Essentially, Ginny looked up to Alicia and started to develop a crush just as Alicia left Hogwarts. A shame they didn't have the chance to be teammates as anything more than just in spirit. :')
