A/N: There's a Subaru commercial where a father prepares to give a little girl the car keys so she can drive somewhere, and in reality he's talking to a teenage girl driving by herself for the first time. This is the same concept but with Harry and his son, James, apparating. I dunno, it's cute. I tried to match the commercial as closely as possible.
Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter, the rights to this commercial, or a Subaru.
"So, you understand how to hold the wand properly? And the correct motion for it?"
James nodded up at his father, his big blue eyes wide and trusting. Harry resisted the urge to ruffle his son's hair and focused on the task at hand. After all, it was James's first time apparating on his own. James was small, his eyes level with Harry's waist, and his face was round and childish. Harry couldn't help but smile slightly with adoration.
"Everything okay?" he repeated. "Just don't go anywhere you've never been before, I don't want you experimenting with that just yet." James was starting to get irritated, but Harry didn't seem to notice. "Don't get distracted by anything else, just focus on getting there without splinching yourself."
"Daddy, okay!" James just wanted to get out of there. However, Harry didn't want him to leave. He was just a boy, the same boy he took care of for so many years, and he wasn't ready to go out on his own. At least, Harry didn't think he was ready.
"Okay," Harry sighed and grudgingly handed James his wand. "Here you go."
"Thanks, Dad." Suddenly, it wasn't a little kid Harry was looking at. He was looking at a man, his full-grown son, and he had to look up slightly to meet James's eyes. James allowed a small smile and took the wand from his father, beginning the motion for apparition.
"Call me," Harry said, "but not while you're apparating." James turned and vanished, but Harry watched the spot he had vacated long after it was empty.
Now go and buy a Subaru.
