Remus sighs and runs a hand over his face, pressing in a little like it might relieve some of his tension headache. “For the last time,” he says, though he knows it’s useless. Sirius used to do things over and over again after ‘the last time’ just to spite him. “You are not sleeping on the floor.”

Molly Prewett invites a group of friends to her aunt’s summer cottage for a post-Hogwarts weekend getaway. What begins as a carefully crafted girl’s weekend soon spirals into a rowdy house party with boys and booze. As Molly clings to the edges of the raucous celebration, she finds Arthur Weasley doing the same. With a shared interest in avoiding over the top festivities, they discover that perhaps there’s always been something a bit more than friendship between them.
