For Bethhhhhhh, who loves M&MWPs, mainly Vicnev and Charlitrix and has begged me to tell her what I have planned for an OC of hers! XD Not yet, I can't! You'll see it soon enough! Happy Christmas '10, Bethie! :3 It's my first Charlitrix!

Charlie c l e a r l y remembered

when Bill first approached him, begging him, too, to

join the Order

but he couldn't

He just

c-o-u-l-d-n-'-t

Charlie had to remain

n·e·u·t·r·a·l

It was the only way

he could keep doing what he

loved

%%%%%%%%%%

Every time something new happened—

·So-and-so disappeared·

·What's-his-name was tortured·

·Miss Witch, found m u r d e r e d·

—Charlie tuned it out…

but he kept the paper clippings

It was in his blood

(thank you very much, Mrs. Weasley)

to watch for t h o s e names

while a dragon sympathetically

n.u.d.g.e.d. his arm

Yeah…

this was the life he wanted

%%%%%%%%%%

He knew

(knew!)

who she was

when she…s*p*i*r*i*t*e*d

through Romania

!But!

there was no inkling, no

i t c h

to Hex her, Curse her

(he wasn't of the Order, he was

n·e·u·t·r·a·l…!)

He had the instinct

to need to learn

m o r e

%%%%%%%%%%

She came&went

as she pleased

It was almost as though she knew of the

TeMpTaTiOn

&& she let Charlie get only a little

*taste*

Mmm…

Tonks who?

(& doesn't she prefer wolves to dragons these days anyway?)

%%%%%%%%%%

Somewhere along the way,

"insanity" to want to work with fire-breathers became

sanity

&& then!—

i-n-s-a-n-i-t-y

reared its ugly head

ag(h)ain

There are no shifts in loyalty

No shifts

None

None, whatsoever

N e v e r

But he couldn't stay

n·e·u·t·r·a·l

when he, to a certain .::opportunity::.,

couldn't say

"No"

%%%%%%%%%%

Holy hell,

Charlie sealed his

F A T E

Few years, several m o n t h s

& Bella looked ((round))…Charlie's heart foolishly ^swelled^

for what better adventure was there than that next step in lovers'

life?

%%%%%%%%%%

YES! That is the correct implication—she's pregnant! This comes about from Bethhhhhhh's idea that Charlitrix had a daughter in January 2008, making her the oldest Weasley grandchild. This girl is named Catrin, and she is the property of Bethie, so please ask her for permission—I have my permission to write Catrin (and again, Beth, you'll see what I have planned for Catrin soon!).

Not too shabby for my first Charlitrix, right, Bethie? ;3

Thanks for reading and please review!
