A/N: I feel obligated to say this before everyone yells at me to READ THE BOOKS YOU FILTHY MUGGLE - I do know that Fred was the one who died. I also, however, know that J.K. Rowling has stated that of the two, George was the more careful, reserved twin. I feel that if either of them were to write a letter just in case, it would have been George.
Having said this, I hope you enjoy reading George's letter.
You'd take the mickey out of me if you knew I was writing this, but… you can never be too careful when it comes to a war. So… here goes.
I'm not really too sure what to write. I guess it's just that we've been by each other's sides all our lives, so it's not easy for me to figure out what to say to you in case we get… separated. That scenario doesn't leap easily to mind.
I suppose I just want to start off by saying that it's okay. I can just hear you swearing at me and yelling that it isn't. And you're right. It's not. Sorry. But even if it's not okay, look… Don't be too sad, okay? I mean, yeah, you're going to be sad, but… Argh. Let me try this again.
It'd be really weird for either one of us to be without the other. Bad weird, not good weird. If it had been you… But it's not you, not if you're reading this. And I'd rather you read this than not. Truth be told, if you're reading this, I'm glad, in a weird sort of way. Rather me than you. Or… rather neither of us, but still.
I sorta want to ask you to look after the rest of the family, but I know you're gonna be hit harder than them. So I'm counting on them to make sure you don't sink too far into depression with the loss of your beloved twin. Haha. Okay, yeah, I guess I shouldn't be joking, but it's what we've done our whole lives and besides, what else can a guy do?
Okay, here I want you to give the paper to the rest of the family. They'd probably hate me forever if I'd only written to you.
Ginny: You've learned well, little sis. Fred and I have had a truly terrible influence on you, and I couldn't be prouder. You let Harry know that if he breaks your heart, I'll be after him from the Great Beyond.
Ron: You could be a bit of a git sometimes but you're still our little brother and as sappy as this sounds, we still care about you. And just get together with Hermione already, yeah? I regret not being able to see that happen before the battle. I guess I owe you a Galleon, Fred. Grab it from Gringotts from me.
Percy: You great prat, you stupid family deserting idiot. I hope you get fired. Hehe, awkward. Thanks for redeeming yourself, and everything. You were really super annoying, but… Welcome back to the family.
Bill and Charlie: You guys were always awesome. We didn't see you much these past few years, but… Thanks for being great brothers, regardless. And sorry about the beetles, Bill.
Dad: Thanks for always being there, Dad. I'll miss you. Good luck with your Muggle things.
Mum: Don't cry too much, please. I know you'll miss me, I'll miss you too. Thanks for everything; for the sweaters, for putting up with me and Fred… And whatever you're feeling guilty about right now, because I know you are, don't. I forgive you for whatever it was.
Fred's yelling at me to get going now so I'll just quickly wrap up this letter. I wish you all the best. Please don't fall apart because of me. Our friends will need you to stay strong. And they'll help you through it. Again, sappiness, but… I love you all, and I'll miss you.
My mischief's been managed.
