A small square of green construction paper rested in her hands. The paper was slightly crinkled and a corner had obviously been dropped into glue because it was hard and a darker green than the rest of the sheet. The girl’s chocolate colored eyes peered down at the note curiously. Obviously, the sender had just finished kindergarten like she had because the spelling was awful. The purpose remained clear, however. In what looked like a dried out black Crayola marker, a few words were scrawled untidily onto the sheet:
i love you. will you maree me?
James is going to make Evans fall in love with him.
(Despite what Sirius thinks.)
I stood in front of the mirror, smoothing down my dress and trying not to cringe at my reflection. My hair, dirty blond and barely past chin length, never seemed to do anything more than stick out from my skull like a pile of twigs.
Not that it really mattered, though. The only date I had tonight was with my three year old brother, and somehow I doubted he was going to care what I looked like. It was New Year's Eve, and I was being forced to spend it making play dough race cars with a toddler. Great.
I lower my quill to the parchment. I guess I have finally come home.

Charlie Weasley has loved and lost twice. Can his broken heart ever find love again?
I never wanted to write this letter. This wasn't how I wanted to explain myself. It was my fondest wish to leave an elegant note upon a yellowed piece of paper, with a stain from my coffee cup at the upper right corner. I would tell you to meet me at some chic cafe in such-and-such time, and you'd arrive to meet me with that letter, creased from years of folding and refolding, still crumpled up in your pocket. We'd sit and chat, and it would be just like old times.
I never imagined that you'd be the one to leave me.

Rosabel Giordano was just another victim caused by the hands of Lord Voldemort, her father. She gets her chance to revenge him when Dumbledore asks her to help Harry bring down Voldemort. However, Rose had no idea what she was getting herself into. Falling in love, becoming a double agent, and being considered a traitor by a good friend is not what she expected.
That holiday of pink and white. Chocolate and roses. Terrible poetry and teenage romance. For some it's full of wonder and excitement, others find it only a reminder that they're alone. Whatever the reaction, Valentine's Day has much in store.

Warning - this is a parody!fic. No seriousness is intended whatsoever.
This contains an illogical hook up, several OOC characters and no cliches whotsoever. Honest.

They had time to give to the stillness of the moment, to allow it to run away with them today and abandon thoughts of tomorrow.
In the midst of post-revolutionary France, with a family who are trying to find their feet in the constantly changing society, Lena Rousseau seeks an escape deeper than she has ever wanted before. With the help of a superstition, self-belief and the love of a man that the past had never allowed her to consider, she finds all she has looked for, and more.
