Written for the I'm falling in love again challenge (Dominique/Teddy), 100 days of Inspiration (Day Four) and the Greenhouse Competition (Begonia) at the HPFF Forum :)
Many thanks to colorful swirls for the amazing beta work – thank you!
everyone thinks she is a mess, with her scarlet lipstick, puffing habits and aching bitterness but you know better.
(she isn't a mess)
roxanne is a mess, with her fake laughs and pretend smiles and the life of a joker, which she can't be.
lily is mess, with her heartbreaker attitude, which breaks her own heart more than the ones she (pretends) to break.
molly is a mess, with her perfect grades and prefect badge that she never wanted.
lucy is a mess, with her competitive zeal, which makes her lose more than win.
rose is a mess, with her good girl heart that is lusting for the bad boy, scorpius.
victoire is a mess, with her sweet smiles and dairy milk kisses that she gives to a married man every night.
you can see beneath each and every one of them and see their m-e-s-s and the m-e-s-s that they have caused.
but dominique, she isn't a mess.
she is complete, whole, passionate, and something utterly different.
she is a cinnamon and hazel and you just can't get enough of her cold talks and icy looks.
you wish she was actually a mess, so you could be her savior and make her whole again
but she isn't
despite what they think, dominique weasley isn't a mess
she is just herself.
