SET PRE-BOOKS

Hey Guys, I’m a big fan of both Buffy and Harry Potter. And of course being a gigantic dork, I’ve looked for tons of crossover fan fictions of them of course. While there are few really good ones out there, there are even fewer Willow/Tara ones. In fact there are none which I've found that focus on them as a couple.

I’d planned on writing a crossover for a while, especially after I read a well thought out one with Willow as Harry twin. And then over at TtH I stumbled across a taster thing with Willow and Lily Potter both wishing for sisters, in Lily’s case a better sister, and it made amazing sense! That story was by amusewithaview, contact me if you want a link. Then this baby was born, enjoy!

• Title – I Open at the Close
• Author name – Vazy
• Rating - PG-13
• Disclaimer – I neither own any the Scooby gang or the Harry Potter characters. That pleasure belongs to Joss Whedon and J. K. Rowling
• Feedback- I crave feedback as much as Angelus craves blood.
• Summary- With the wizarding world in dark times as He-who-must-not-be-named causes mass devastation, happiness still manages to bloom. The story of Willow Evans and her family's lives in the middle of a war.
• All bow to my amazing beta, indigokane
• Thanks to my friend Olivia for her useless title suggestions including Ho ho ho its magic, Hey Baby want to come under my invisibility cloak and get your wand out and eventually giving me the actually title, after referring to my first few ideas as ‘porn titles’



Chapter 1
The dappled autumn light fell across the street, illuminating everything with an orange glow to match the leaves on the trees. The light breeze ruffled everything, playfully tugging at people’s hair and coats. The early evening was perfect, it reflected everything that was right in the world at that moment.

Willow Evans’ eyes tracked a duckling as it chased its mother across the lake at the center of the park. Sitting cross-legged on the park bench she continued to wait. The wind picked up the ends of her red hair tossing it across her face. A smile curled her lips as she watched the few people passing her by. It was so peaceful here that she didn’t want to move. The sun warmed her skin and her eyes drifted closed, relaxing into the worn wood of the bench. In these times you couldn’t let your guard down for a second, but for the few moments it lasted it was nice. Half opening her eyes she spotted the blur of red as it sprinted at her. Before she could do anything the woman was on her. Willow felt the air crushed out of her lungs.

“Hey Lil, I’m using those lungs!” she chuckled patting her sister on the head. Laughing the other woman let go. Matching green eyes and flaming hair showed the obvious relation. If the pair hadn’t been separated by those two years of age they could have been mistaken for twins. Lily Evans sat onto the bench next to Willow, eyes darting round to check for danger.

“Where’s that no-good husband of yours then?” Willow prodded, distracting Lily from her scan of the near vicinity. Lily shifted uncomfortably under the teasing gaze.

“Yeah well, where’s Tara!” She poked her sister in the side, Willow slapped the hand away.

“How do those even link Lil? I mean James, your husband, as in the man you are married to for eternity. And Tara, my best friend and flat mate, yes I love her but... Really no connection what so ever,” Willow babbled before taking a deep breath of air and answering the question “Tare’s caught up at St. Mungos. Said she’d meet us there.” Lily rolled her eyes at her sister’s denseness.

“Friends, yeah,” She received a death glare “James’ got distracted by a dog.” One red eyebrow rose in response, Lily waved the silent question away.

“Your husband is odd.” Willow said as she wrinkled her nose at the thought of the black haired man in question. A look of delight crossed her face as she turned to voice a thought to Lily.

“Don’t you dare say this proves your ‘James and Sirius secret luuuurve affair’,” Willow laughed at the flat tone in Lily’s voice

“You read too much muggle romance novels, James and Sirius together, no. Uh-uh, and James just likes dogs okay?” Lily puffed out her cheeks in annoyance as she finished her rant.

“Totally gay for each other Lil, if you weren’t in the picture… Bam! Instant couple!” Willow chortled, hearing her sister mutter darkly under her breath, Willow laughed harder.

“Thanks so much, Miss ‘I’m gayer than Christmas’.” Came the defensive tone of a man. Willow rolled her eyes and hopped of the bench to greet her brother-in-law. Giving him a one armed hug, she couldn’t help but smile.

“Oh James-y, you know how proud of that title I am.” With a wink she ruffled his dark hair and knocked his glasses lopsided before spinning on her heel to help her sister up. James’ scowled at his sister-in-law.

“I don’t love Sirius! Tell her Lil.” He whined to his wife as she linked his and Willow’s arms through hers.

“Of course James, now be quiet.” She shushed her husband before turning and vanishing into thin air with husband and sister in tow, leaving only a loud crack of sound behind them in the peaceful park.

*****
No one would have noticed the trio appearing in the dark and dank London street miles away from their original location, that is unless they’d been waiting. The blonde witch, who was hiding in the shadows of the tall dirty brick wall, whipped her wand out pointing it at them.

“Tare!” Willow cried hurrying to the other witch to hug her. Before she could get the other witch in her arms she was poked hard in the chest with a wand. Big pleading green eyes met hard blue.

“Sorry Will but y-you know what Dumbledore said about checking.” Willow pouted, before the fact settled in and a guilty smile painted itself on the witch’s face. Tara’s eyes darted to the couple behind the redhead. Matching guilt.

“None of you checked?” Three heads shook “We’re in the middle of a war! And I think that the auror would be the one to remember to check.” Willow pouted pitifully at her flat mate. Tara’s heart melted.

“O-okay Will, but w-what’s the name of our cat?”

“Miss Kitty Fantastico!” Willow smiled brilliantly before returning the gesture.

“How did we meet?” Tara sighed to herself; this was one of Willow’s favourite questions to pull out of the bag.

“You knocked me over in your haste to get to the food trolley on our first train journey.” A giggle was covered up from the pair hiding behind Willow. Turning a glare on them a flush covered her face, she’d forgotten they’d been there.

“Okay, I was excited. Hello, first time on the way to a magic school and the snacks looked really good.” James sniggered behind a hand as Willow shot lasers at him.

“Don’t forget Mister I let a lot of stuff slide at Hogwarts when I was head girl, plus I let you have my baby sister!” An outraged look crossed the married couples’ faces as they both opened their mouths to argue back. A soft hand on Willow’s arm distracted her from the family squabble and she looked at blue eyes shining with mirth. Waving a hand in the direction of her sister and brother-in-law to show how little she cared, she turned her attention back to her flat mate.

“See, knew it was you, makin’ me get all check-y.” Willow mock glared and stuck her tongue out, wrapping her arms around Tara in a friendly hug.

“Of c-course Willow, but did you check those two?” Willow dropped her arms before grumbling to herself about procedures and knowing her own family. Tara stifled her own laughter at the predictable girl.

*****
Standing in front of two grubby houses the group paused, attempting to look casual.

“Who’s got the note? You know Dumble’s been fiddling with the security.” James hissed at the three women. Three sets of eyes fell on Willow.

“Why do you assume I have it, jeez.” She was met with a series of raised eyebrows, with an irritable roll of her eyes she began to search her coat pockets. Before they knew it an endless stream of useless items were being retrieved from the redhead’s pockets. A packet of sherbet lemons along with a catnip toy, luminous green nail varnish, toothbrush, screwdriver, lighter, five pound note, a retainer and a file marked with confidential found their way into Tara’s hands. She and James eyed the few muggle items tangled up in the more normal items; both of them being pure blood meant they were still a little confused by some of the things Willow toted around with her daily. Lily hit her forehead with her palm when her sister passed her a rubber duck.

“Willow, come on-” Lily groused before getting cut off by the sound of triumph the other redhead made as she whipped out both her wand and a scrap of parchment. Beaming happily, Willow stuffed the items back into her pockets before opening the parchment, reading it and handing it over to the others. A loud grinding sound rent the air as a house pushed its way between the other two houses that they stood outside of.

Number Twelve Grimmauld place loomed over them, dark and foreboding. The sun that had been warming the world since early that morning seemed to disappear, leaving in its wake a cold emptiness. For a moment no one moved, they just studied the house.

“I forget how butt-ugly Sirius’ house is.” James muttered pulling a face.

“C-cold t-too.” Tara stuttered glumly. The two Evans sisters shared a look of similar disgust before making their way up the dark stone steps.

“Meeting ahoy!” Willow enthused as she used her wand to unlock the front door’s many locks.

I REALLY like this! The interactions between the four of them are so perfect. Are you planning on focusing on the war effort, or post James/Lily? Or change what happens?

Can't wait for the next chapter!

Yay for HP W/T goodness.

I love that Willow carries around muggle items, especially a rubber duck. Nice to know Arthur Weasley isn't the only one curious about those things.

HP is to a rubber duck as Hitchhicker's Guide is to a towel. Every muggle (human) seem to have one, but no wizard (alien) seems to know why.

Can't wait to read more.

Interesting story idea for a crossover you have here!

Of course Lilly's sister being a witchy Willow will change everything, once you get to the point of "you know who" killing Harry's parents and having him grow up with aunt Willow, who's not opposed to the world of witchcraft and sorcery.

Can't wait to read more!

Interesting setup. So is willow an auror or tara? I was alittle confused there. I love the banter between lily and willow. It seems like w/t are accepted as a couple but are not quite there. So wil they raise harry when lily and james die?

I'm a strange one, in that I like fic, but not really X-overs. I find it weird to blend multiple seperate realities. Like magic, in BtVS was/is mythological, religious, and in HP it kinda just is, with no real source other than the witch or wizard's ablitlity. W/T is my exception, their awesomeness transcends, and I love them in any world. I still kinda like the main characters to be either Buffy canon, or OCs. I'm weird.

That said, I like the start of this. The interactions between the four are funny and loving. Willow's pockets are very Willowy. If Tara's a pure-blood, is her father okay with magic, and Tara, or is he just a wizarding jackass now? Tara got caught up at St. Mungos. Work, some part of the war effort, or sick or injured friend/family? Tara and Willow are best friends, right. I bet they never date, either, because they like their lives and are content to just hang out with each other. And they make up any excuse for those "accidential" touches. Kinda wondering if Will knows she is "Gayer than Christmas" or if she thought that was a joke. If she knows it, why aren't they orgasam friends yet?

Ahoy matie! You love me? I love you! Mean you're all super enthusiastic and nice! Seriously you rock! I'm fairly excited about where I'm going with it too. Yep, Wills will be Harry's aunt. I can't wait to get to that bit, Lots of Willow and Tara taking care of baby Harry fun to be had. And with a family of James, Lily, Willow and Tara? Poor Harry.

InkJunkie
'Ello there, I'm actually really glad to have that privilege of being the first HP crossover you've read! Hee hee, makes me happy! And I hope you enjoy the next update. I'll try to make them more regular, just need to get in the swing of writing and sending to be Beta'd quicker.

wolfsbane
Why hello there! Glad you liked their interactions, I was aiming for a Scooby like dynamic? Hope I got it right. Although in the next chapter I would have liked to make Sirius a little less whiney? Oh, and give Lupin some more screen time. Oh Lupin! I plan on focusing mostly on the war effort and the lead up to Lily and James' deaths but then I do plan on getting some of the aftermath of the war. Depends how well it goes, I also kind of want to do some little clips of Harry's years of Hogwarts at the end? But really it all depends on how the rest goes.

vlad_enflame
Hey, Oh yes, yes, yes, I shall continue! I'm actually really excited about this fic and even more excited by the amount of interest its gotten. So thanks for commenting! I love HP and BtVS too, there really needs to be more crossovers out there. Thank you!

BuffyFan4ever
Hello! Ah yes Willow and her muggle items, I so wanted her to have like bottomless pockets full of stuff that confuse all the other wizards. But really the rubber duck was the best of them. I think I need to work in a Willow/Arthur interaction of madness and muggle! Oh yay for HHGTTG reference.

Laragh
My mind is slightly blown that you're reading this. You're like a legend... Glad to see the interest and don't worry there'll Willow-y Tara goodness soon although not for a couple more chapters. I can offer you couple-y non-couple-dom from them in the meantime.

Dax
Hello there! That’s what I liked about the idea of having Willow as Lily sister, it makes sense. Witchy Lily, Witchy Willow. And yeah life for Harry would be very different raised by them. I mean even if Willow and Tara weren't gettin' down with the magic it'd be different than Harry being raised by the Dursleys. Thanks for the comment!

JustSkipIt
Okay so my mind officially imploded. Another legendary person? Reading this?! Total implode. Willow's the auror and Tara is a healer at St. Mungo's. I figured the jobs fit them, I mean Tara is all about helping people and so's Willow but in a different way. And Willow being a auror kind of reminds me of when she stayed to go to UCSD so she could help fight evil? Willow got her further education in evil butt kickin'. The pair of them are definitely excepted as a couple and act like one too, but I think Willow would probably be a bit dense about it. Tara would have a better insight into it but probably doesn't act on it either? Like she's comfy and doesn't want to ruin it. And yep Willow and Tara get little Harry. Much fun to be had with that!

Promthea128
Ahoy hoy, I must admit I'm not the greatest fan of crossovers either, I mean when you come across a well written one where the characters slot in seamlessly it's awesome. I'm glad you like this one though. Glad I got the interaction between them at a point I was aiming for. I'm not sure about the Tara's dad thing but I think he would be like a wizarding jackass, I mean like the Malfoys of something? That would make sense. Nope no dating for them, perfectly happy with their non-couple couple love. Willow would know she's gayer than Christmas, but you know her, probably a bit to dense to realise her and Tara couple material.

Niko
Hey, Thanks for the comment. PM was sent and you have replied so all is well!

Chapter 2
The kitchen at Number Twelve was filled with about a dozen people. Willow grinned, sticking her tongue between her teeth. These were the people she knew, the life she knew. Dark wizard hunting. And she loved every moment of it. Well not the paperwork, she thought, wrinkling her nose at the thought of the nasty, nasty paperwork that at that moment sat on her desk at work.

Speaking of that paperwork she decided to steer clear of her pretty much boss, Alastor Moody, who was right now involved in what appeared to be a serious discussion with her other superior, Kingsley Shacklebolt.

The tug on her arm by Tara led Willow to follow her and the two they’d arrived with towards a pair of bickering men.

“Come on Moony but it’ll be my Birthday!” Sirius Black begged Remus Lupin, attempting to use huge puppy eyes on the other man. With a roll of his eyes Lupin turned to greet the new arrivals.

“Hello Willow, Tara, Lily. Now James will you please tell him to leave me alone.” The finger jabbed towards the unshaven Sirius, who looked like someone had kicked a puppy in front of him.

“But Prongs, he won’t go out with me on my Birthday!”

“That’s probably because you want him to come to a strip club with you, because I won’t.” James muttered with a roll of the eyes. Before Sirius could debate this, Lily cut in.

“No way in hell are you taking my husband to a strip club, Black.” Lily practically growled at him. Both Tara and Willow tried to muffle their laughter. Suddenly a pair of pleading grey eyes had locked onto them.

“Willow…” Sirius pleaded, Willow’s eyes widened.

“No way, nuh-uh! No!” Shaking her head she crossed her arms.

“But you like girls. Naked girls at that.” Resisting the urge to slap Sirius, Willow shook her head again.

“If you like your body the way it is I suggest you drop it.” Willow bluffed. Sirius decided to take his chances, pulling himself to his full height; towering above the redhead.

“Save me Tara!” Willow hid behind the Blonde healer in panic. Before the situation could develop any further, someone cleared their throat. Loudly. All of the group froze in place. Twinkling blue eyes surveyed them merrily.

“S-sorry Professor.” Tara supplied for them before leading Willow to sit down.

“When did he get here…?” Willow whispered in Tara’s ear before slumping into her seat.

“Now that we’re all, uh, focused,” Dumbledore smiled kindly at the young members of the order before continuing, “We should start the meeting.”

***
Willow’s head was resting against Tara’s shoulder as she fought to keep her eyes open. The meeting was dragging on, Elphias Doge had been droning on about a death eater sighting for the past half-an-hour.

Tara rested her head on top of the flaming red locks. She was just as tired as Willow, both of them had been pulling double shifts at their respective jobs and with work for the Order of the Phoenix.

Tara sighed as she thought about having to get up early the next morning to get into St. Mungo’s early to check in on one of her patients. Sighing she felt Willow’s jaw move in a giant yawn.

“Willow.” At the sound of her name Willow’s head shot up knocking Tara from her resting place.

“I, um, yes Professor Dumbledore?” Willow asked weakly, blinking her eyes in surprise. Off to the side she heard her sister snigger, fighting the urge to turn and glare she kept her attention focused on Dumbledore.

“How did the information you dug up on the Lestrange’s plan go?” Willow nodded eagerly at Dumbledore’s words, straightening up from leaning against her flat mate’s shoulder.

“It went okay, I found that there’s been a lot of activity in there account at Gringotts from a goblin I spoke to when on Ministry business.” Tara tried to keep the frown off her face at the thought of innocent creatures being dragged into the Wizarding War.

“By the looks of the lack of captures of Death Eaters too lately,” Willow looked at Moody for confirmation to this fact. “Something big is happening. They’re not out on petty joy rides at the moment…” She trailed off nervously. Tara took her hand squeezing it in comfort.

“Thank you Willow, will you please keep an eye on the situation and keep digging up as much as you can,” Dumbledore concluded, “And with that, I think we can draw this meeting to a close.” Smiling he stood up, his deep purple robes swirling impressively around him as he left the kitchen. Willow blew out a noisy breath as the door shut. Yawning Lily stood up from her seat next to Willow and stretched.

“My big sis, an important cog in the defeat of Voldemort.” Lily teased her sister. Willow glared at her darkly before helping pull Tara to her feet. Tara stretched as well before smiling at the sisters.

“A-are you and James coming to ours for dinner tonight or…?” Tara smiled at the couple.
James shook his head for his wife, he smiled apologetically.

“Sorry Tare, I made plans for us tonight. Next time? So long as you cook ‘cause your cooking is amazing, and well I don’t trust the Evans sisters anywhere near a kitchen.” He smirked as he received twin glares from the two red heads. Before the pair could attack him Sirius appeared.

“How come I never get invited to dinner?” He whined pitifully. Willow’s glare turned on him.

“Because, Black last time you came to our house you got drunk made several unwelcome lesbian jokes and passed out in my bedroom.” Lupin stood next to Tara trying to fight the urge to laugh, Tara shot him an exasperated look, that clearly told him it was his turn to clean up the fight.

“Oh dear where’s Peter gone? That little rat has disappeared…” Remus asked innocently, all the eyes turned to him. Sirius frowned and started to state the obvious that Peter never showed to the meeting and how did the werewolf not notice his absence. Raising one red eyebrow Willow turned her attention away from the men and to Tara.

“Taaaaaaare, can we go home? I’m hungry.” Willow pouted pathetically to reinforce her pitiful mood.

“One s-sec, Will. I w-want to ask Fabien if they k-know how Fred is, Molly brought him in y-yesterday.” The blonde drifted over to a pair of men who both had shocking red hair. The Prewett twins both greeted her happily, smiling softly Tara asked her question, without bothering with a proper greeting.

“D-do you know how F-Fred is? Molly brought him in, s-she thought he had a mild case of Scrofungulus.” Gideon frowned, obviously having no idea what was going on with his nephew, but Fabien nodded.

“I spoke to Molly earlier, Fred’s fine the magic booster you gave him worked a treat. Her only problem now is being run into the ground with the gaggle of kids.” He smirked at his sister and brother-in-law’s want for a large family.

“T-thanks. Pass my love along to them all?” Tara smiled again and left the twins alone.

***
Willow flopped bonelessly onto the sofa in the living room, letting out a happy sigh as she sunk deeper into the cushions. Tara stood at the front door checking all the locks and magic charms were still safely in place and no one would be getting into the flat without one hell of a warning. With a final flick of her wand she was satisfied. Willow rolled her head back to view Tara over the back of the sofa.

“I love being home. Have I told you that? Merlin, home is good-” The rest of her happy babble was cut off as a black and white cat pounced on her demanding attention. Tara smiled at the sight of Willow making a fuss over their cat.

“W-what do you want for dinner, i-its late but I can make something.” Willow nodded enthusiastically as the little cat in her lap purred like an engine.

“Anything Tare, I love all your cooking. Love you!” Willow shouted as Tara retreated into the kitchen to scavenge a late night meal for them.

By the time they managed to eat it was nearly midnight. They both sat nestled on opposite ends of the sofa both cradling mugs of tea, feet lying next to each other in the centre. The flat was warm and outside the sounds of London were quiet and seemed a million miles away.

Willow rested her head on the back of the sofa and studied the blonde across from her. Long blonde hair was draped over her shoulder in a plait and blue eyes were half closed. Smiling softly Willow cast her mind back and could remember countless evenings spent like this. She could hardly remember a time without Tara in her life; she was as much of a feature as Lily.

The sound of the inevitable rain started to splatter against the window. Willow’s breathing began to slow. This is just like all the nights they’d fallen asleep in the Ravenclaw common room together when studying. Willow glanced at Tara from under her eyelashes. The other woman was asleep too. Groggily Willow pulled the blanket from the back of the sofa to cover them up before curling into a ball and falling asleep.

Great update. Can't wait they realize how deep their love for each other is. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

I feel as if this fic is going to be like Neverland....Please don't let it be so! Its an awesome fic, and this one looks like it will be really good, but know what will make it even better? :wtkiss

Thank you for the Ravenclaw love. I HP, if I remember right, the only hero who wasn't a Gryffindor was Luna. Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and even Slytherin represented valid qualities.

I like this start, I'm intrigued. I mean, Harry Potter goodness + Willow/Tara goodness = awesome, right?

I've had Accio Deathly Hallows stuck in my head for days now, and now this . . . now I want to reread my Harry Potter books.

Just a quick continuity note: I believe Kingsley Shacklebolt wasn't in the original Order, he didn't join until the second one, like Tonks.

Hurra for another great update!! :pride

Loving Willow & Tara being in Love way back fro when they were of House Ravenclouw: :wtkiss

Not so sure though about Tara suddering when alone in Willow's pressence.

Looking forwood to the point when Willow will become Aunty Willow - even though it should mean that her sister and brother in law will only have another year to live - "sight!"

Oh and one got to love that friendly banter between Willow and Sirius:

Quote:
“No way in hell are you taking my husband to a strip club, Black.” Lily practically growled at him. Both Tara and Willow tried to muffle their laughter. Suddenly a pair of pleading grey eyes had locked onto them.

“Willow…” Sirius pleaded, Willow’s eyes widened.

“No way, nuh-uh! No!” Shaking her head she crossed her arms.

“But you like girls. Naked girls at that.” Resisting the urge to slap Sirius, Willow shook her head again.

“If you like your body the way it is I suggest you drop it.” Willow bluffed. [...]


Keep up the good work. :kgeek

So Tara and Willow are both Ravenclaw? Excellent. I almost would have expected Tara to be in Hufflepuff - not because they're duffers but because she's so empathetic. But she also seems brilliant so Ravenclaw seems a good fit.

Interesting that Willow's out as a lesbian but she and Tara don't seem to be a couple sexually. I'm guessing that everyone believes that they are even if they're not and sort of just doesn't mention it. Like when you have an aunt with a "roommate" and no one says anything about Alice and K.J. or whatever.

I'm curious to read what comes next...

We have a winner for Dibs! Thank you and the girls'll be together soon I promise, but until then hope your satisfied with happy friendly love.

Promthea128
Neverland. Amazing story, but you just want to strangle Willow and Tara in it! I promise they won't dance around the subject of togetherness for too long. I put them in Ravenclaw for that reason, I danced around for awhile um-ing and ah-ing whether to make the pair of they Gryffindors, but in the end I thought no way! Thanks for the review!

BeMyDeputy
Thanks, I thought it made a good combination too, otherwise y'know probably wouldn't be writing this puppy. I'll admit the soundtrack to writing this has been a lot of Wizard rock mixed in with some Hank Green, and I've been flicking through the old books and dragging out the DVDs. Argh, I can't believe I messed up on Kingsley! I've been researching into everything else, I've even got a little timeline of ages, but he just slipped through stupid Auror. DFTBA.

Alex_Vixen
Thanks, but I'm fairly sure you rock more. I can't wait for some Will and Harry either, I can just imagine her being the one spoiling Harry, wish I could write faster to get to that point! I tried to get all of them in character I was concerned Sirius was a bit whiney but, no complaints so yay! Everyone loves a bit of the Dumble, I admit I cried too *Pats on back*

Dax
Thank yoooou, Silly Willow and Tara have probably loved each other since Willow careened into Tara, sort of wish I could write a prequel of them in school but I should get through this first, huh? I can't wait for Auntie Will either she'd be so awesome, although you're write that that'll mean the countdown until Lily and James' deaths. Yay for Willow and Sirius banter!

KnightlyLove
HP world? Great. W/T? Great. Two good things together totally can't go wrong! And thanks. Willow and Tara aren't together in the sense of the word. They're pretty much in a relationship without any of the kissing or sex, just everyone but them realises that. Sorry to confuse.

JustSkipIt
Yeah, two little ex-Ravenclaws. I did think about having Tara in Hufflepuff and Willow in Ravenclaw but I wanted them both in the same house, otherwise they wouldn't have common room time together. So I figured Tara fit better into Ravenclaw then Willow into Hufflepuff. I also debated about going down the Gryffindor line but I think Gryffindor has enough good witches and wizards. I think it just doesn't occur to either of them to get together, they're just happy as they are, all the cuddles and love but without realise they could get smoochies too.

UPDATE BELOW

Chapter 3
The crackle of the coffee machine was the first sound Willow heard.

Next came the awareness of a niggling pain in the back of her neck and the fact that during the night she’d pretty much fallen off the sofa. Her upper body lay sprawled across the floor, with her legs still tossed above her on the cushions.

Willow kept her eyes closed not bothering to move. Other sounds began to trickle down to her; Tara’s soft footsteps, the chink of mugs and the splash of water. Sighing Willow cracked an eye open.

Not much light filtered in through the drawn curtains, taking a wild guess she figured it was still early and the sky outside was a sickly mix of grey’s.

Willow reluctantly pushed herself up onto her elbows. It turned out the stiffness wasn’t limited to her neck; it spread all the way down her spine.

Groaning, Willow swiveled and pushed herself to her feet. Twisting around for a moment, trying to realign her back, she moved towards the smell of coffee.

The kitchen of the flat was small and brightly colored. Tara sat perched on a stool at the breakfast bar, her blue eyes skimming across the Daily Prophet, mug in hand.

Without glancing up, she smiled lopsidedly.

“Morning Sleepy-head, how’s the back?”

Willow glared balefully at Tara as she got herself a giant mug for coffee, filling it she hopped onto the stool next to her flatmate.

“You could have done Something, y’know Tare.” Willow muttered, before downing half her mug, ignoring the scalding hot liquid.

“Aw, you know I would Will, but I didn’t want to wake you. Its not even seven yet.”

Tara’s eyes flicked up from her reading to smile softly at the red head. Willow choked on her mouthful of caffeine.

“Not even…?” Willow moaned pitifully. “Why did you make coffee, you know coffee wakes me!” Willow lay her head on the counter, ignoring Tara’s stifled giggle.

“I know, you and your freakish coffee nose, but I need the c-caffine. I’m due at Mungo’s in-” Tara glanced at the clock on the wall, “Half-an-hour.”

Willow nodded groggily as she sipped her coffee slower.

“I don’t have to be in until late, I also may not be back tonight-”

A blonde eyebrow was raised in question.

“Misson-y thing. Scrimgeour made a team up of us to go out on some wild goose chase lead he got. Likely scenario? We end up sitting in some woods in the pouring rain all night, or a run-down pub in the middle of nowhere, where the guys insist on hitting on me. Stupid Scrimgeour, man works us overtime doing nothing.”

Willow pouted heavily, before flicking her wand to summon the coffee pot over.

Tara smiled sympathetically. With the wizarding world in utter mayhem due to Voldemort, both the Auror office and St. Mungos were making their employees work double time.

“J-jackson is away so I-I’m helping in Spell Damage t-today. It’s c-crazy in there at the moment, all the-the…” Tara trailed off a pained expression on her face.

Willow nodded gravely, she was faced with what the death eaters were doing daily. With a shuddering breath Tara set her mug down.

“Are you flooing or apparating?” Willow asked over the rim of her mug, green eyes watching Tara move to the sink.

“Floo. I need to see if Oz is still there, h-he was keeping an eye on Mrs. Bennett for me over night.”

As she passed Willow in her seat, Tara brushed her fingertips over soft red hair and Willow closed her eyes letting out a sound akin to a purr. Willow enjoyed the closeness she and Tara shared, all the little touches and gestures.

Smiling happily to herself, Willow waved her wand to get the dishes and mugs to clean themselves.

Yawning and scratching at her mussed hair, she grabbed an apple. Willow wasn’t due at the offices until the afternoon.

Aurors schedules were generally pretty solid but when they had missions the hours got crazy, that meant either all-nighters or being away from home for days on end.

Glancing at the clock again Willow groaned at the early hour.

“I’m going back to bed.” She muttered to herself.

***
?
The Auror offices were situated on the second floor of the ministry. They weren’t very impressive.

Cream paint, along with tasteful wooden floors; or as tasteful as the cheap wood could be.

There were several cubicles in one corner, which were occupied by the senior Aurors, and great banks of wooden desks for the rest. Wood seemed the theme in this department.

Off the main room were several smaller rooms, hidden behind these doors were the more exciting rooms. The head of the department’s office, the strategy rooms, training rooms, break room and the most exciting of all, the dark little room which held shelves upon shelves of books and the cabinets with all the paperwork.

Willow squinted through the water that dripped through her fringe; the weather that had seemed lovely had turned dark.

Slumping down into her desk hair she studied her desk calendar. Late October. She was surprised the good weather had held as long as it had; Yesterday had been glorious. That was the last of the sun that they would be getting until July or even August; sometimes Willow just wished she could live in California were the temperature was above 20°C more often than not.

Groaning, Willow’s eyes wandered over to stack of paperwork that was on her desk. She’d neglected to do it yesterday so had come into the office early to get it done.

After a couple hours of hastily filled out paperwork, someone rapped their knuckles loudly on the wood in front of her. When Willow glanced up, she was met by a mismatched set of eyes. One brown and one electric blue, whizzing round in its socket.

“Damn it Moody! That thing still freaks me out, couldn’t you have just gotten a normal one?” Willow snapped, a headache having wormed its way into the front of her brain as she’d worked.

Moody let out a grunt before seizing Willow’s wrist and pulling her to her feet.

“Are you ready Evans? Scrimgeour wants us out of here as soon as possible.”

Willow nodded rubbing her wrist and smiling ruefully. She knew Moody hadn’t meant to hurt her, he just wanted to get this over with. As always he disapproved of Rufus Scrimgeour’s plans.

“Where’s Frank? He’s meant to be on this damned wild goose chase with us isn’t he?”

Moody nodded, his blue eye invisible as it looked out through the back of his head.

“Stop that! Jeez Moody!” Willow slapped him lightly on the arm. The eye whizzed back to the front and at that moment Frank Longbottom chose to pop up over Moody’s shoulder, grinning.

“We ready to get this show on the road?” He chuckled.

Willow nodded, spinning on her heels to grab her coat that lay over the back of her chair, before glancing at the two older wizards.

“Where is this show headed anyway? I mean I just got told ‘Evans you’re working on a grave shift tomorrow’ and then off ol’ Rufus hopped.”

Willow glanced between the two wizards nervously, she hated all-nighters. Frank laughed at Willow’s babble, Moody just shrugged before heading for the exit.

At nearly 22 Willow was still fairly new to the Auror game, she’d been out of school for three years and had managed to pass the Auror exams early.

“So where…?” Willow asked again as the trio made their way through the golden grilles of the lift, which shut behind them.

“We’re after Nott,” Frank explained kindly, seeing as there was no explanation coming from Alastair Moody anytime soon,

“We’ve had some leads on his location, lots of reports from around Luton, that along with the uh… Muggle Deaths, has pretty much confirmed it. We’re there to search the area and check the places he’s been spotted. Easy right?” Frank grinned easily at the young woman.

Willow nodded jerkily. Nott was a big deal.

Willow frowned, she hated Nott. The man was a known Muggle torturer, even more so than the average death eaters anyway.

Willow thought of her parents, both of whom had passed away. Her Dad had died of a heart attack the year she left Hogwarts, and her Mum had passed away last year. Willow was just glad that she and Lily hadn’t lost them under more gruesome circumstances.

The sound of the main floor being announced in a cheery voice, broke Willow from her train of thought. Moody and Frank both strode out of the lift, and Willow scurried after them, her shorter legs struggling to keep up.

As they left the ministry, Willow tugged her coat tighter around herself. It was already pitch black outside and rain was hammering down once again. The pavement reflected the streetlamps making everything glow yellow and the leaves that yesterday had seemed to be on trees, coated the streets in a slippery bed.

Willow wished she could use a spell to keep from getting wet, or alternately an umbrella, as they moved out into the night.

Tonight was going to be a long night.

Nott's a fucker. I hope they catch him, and totally don't remember if/how/when he was imprisoned. 'Cuz seriously . . . extra bad guy. At least we know that everyone will make it through the night, since they have places to be later. Even if that place includes being tortured. Poor Frank.

I like that you're giving us these little pictures of what their life is like now, so as everything changes we'll see the impact. It doesn't seem like Harry or Neville have been born yet, so there's at least a year of the war left, right? Have you given what year it is and I just missed it?

From the little we've seen, Willow and Tara seem like long-term affectionate friends; it'll be interesting to see how Tara moves out of the friend zone from there. Still, Willow was super defensive when Lily brought Tara up, so maybe she's not particularly friend-zoned and instead Willow is just frustrated as fuck.

Just so you know, there are some typos in this update, and some word (other word?) examples that got left in from the editing process.

DFTBA

LOL. Dont rush the muse, babes. I cant wait either but you've been doing pretty well with the time between updates so trust me...in no time you'll be there and we all are gonna beg for more, lol.

Everyone loves a bit of the Dumble, I admit I cried too *Pats on back*


Thanks, babes. I think ALL cried, lol. Although I gotta admit I cried even MORE when Dobby died.

By the way...I'm sure you already know it but if you need to remember anything about HP universe, go to Harry Potter Wiki. It's AWESOME! EVERYTHING is there!!! I use it A LOT for my Hermione/Ginny story in FF.net.

Anyway....I loved the Chapter. Poor Frank....knowing what will happen to him....Awww...I love Moody. Another death that made me sad. I hope Willow doesnt get wounded in their mission.

Cant wait for next Chapter, darling. Keep up the good work.

I missed an update. I hate when I do that :( I think I got all confuzzled with the board changes.

Your whole story makes me so excited. Fangirl-fandom collision squee with adorableness and huggles on top :)

I'm very excited at the ages you've put them at too! So cool to see them in a setting post-school.

I'm eagerly waiting for them to realise that :wtkiss :wtkiss :wtkiss would be a welcome inclusion in their lives :wink

:peace

Oh no! I have a theory and I really don't want it to be right... the mission that Willow, Mad-eye and Frank Longbottom are going on is this going to turn into the night when Frank and Alice longbottom get tortured by Bellatrix? Because Willow keeps thinking that on this current mission that nothing should be out of the ordinary and that they'll probably meet a dead end, but whenever someone says that in a book something always happens! (O.O) I am really worried now.
So far I really am enjoying the way your putting the story together you have a really good feel of each character's personality and it shows when they interact.
I'm really excited for the next update :D

I actually doubt that this is the night they get tortured. We haven't been told exactly when we are yet, but we don't have any sense that Harry and Neville have been born yet: the only child mentioned I recall is Fred. I'm actually guessing that this will be one of the three times that Longbottoms defy Voldemort, making Neville just as viable for being a candidate as Harry for the target of prophecy.

Of course, that's assuming that the only change to the continuity is the addition of Willow and Tara AND that the boys have yet to be born, neither of which has been confirmed.

Hmmm. In addition to being a death eater, was nott buckbeak's executioner? Bad guy.

Willow and tara are so close and intimate. I f feel like the lack of coupledom must be due to tara.


I'm very excited to read more and afraid at the same time.

Heya, just started reading. I put this fic off for a bit cus I wasn't sure about the HP stuff, despite being a small fan but I like that its set before the books rather than having W/T be at school with Harry etc. Anyway I'm glad I started reading cus its nice to see a bunch of familiar characters that arent the regular scoobs and I can totally imagine Willow as an auror. One of things I don't love in fics is when Willow has a non-helping people related job because of what you mentioned above about how she chose to stay in Sunnydale because she wanted to be part of the good fight, so being an auror suits her well. And Tara at St. Mungo's definitely.

I love the W/T interaction so far, I'm guessing Tara isn't out or anything seeing as no-one tried to persuade her to go to a strip club! Looking forward to spending some time in her headspace too and seeing how their attraction plays out. Nothing like a spot of mortal danger to bring out the declarations of love.

All in all, this looks set tp be a total winner of a fic and I eagerly await your masterful pen.

Plus I love the fact that it rains a lot. I have no idea why. British obsession with weather I guess?
