A Rowena/Salazar story written for TGS's Seeker 'Ship Exchange Challenge'.

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.
The battle has ended, thanks in part to Neville's bravery. But as the new day breaks, he knows he's no hero.

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.

I wrote this as an entry to a writing contest. The only requirement was to include the phrase, "I think you should sit down."
"I think you should sit down."
The phrase sticks out in my mind as the one I heard just before my life changed forever. But Cody wasn't going to give up and I certainly wasn't either. From the moment I heard that phrase, I knew we would have to prove the doctors wrong.
There was a part of me that wished for the strength that had left the moment Chris had left back. However, another part of me wanted to curl up in a ball and cry my eyes out.

You looked up to him. He was your hero. Then he left you. And I hated him for that. You never saw how bad it really was. You were so young you only saw the good times. You may never see this, Iris, but I just want you to know that I love you and I only want the best for you.
Companion piece to Bringing the Magic Back
My dad named me after his favorite flower, the iris. Everyone I know was named by their mother, except me. The day my mother left was the day all the magic left Dad's life. He loved her, despite her faults, something I was never capable of doing.
Alaska Avenue was where I grew up. It was a run down street on the outskirts of town and most people tried not to look at it when they drove past, but it was home to me. My mom didn't understand why I was so upset when the town decided to destroy everyone's homes and turn the street into a strip mall, but there were few things about my life that my mom actually understood.
Leaves crunch beneath my feet as I run through the woods. I cannot say for how long exactly I have been running, just that my legs already feel accustomed to the pace I am traveling at.
You know that if you look back you will be turned into a pillar of salt, but like Lot's wife, you are imperfect and you sin just as much as the rest of them.
