So... this was doing the rounds a while back, but I didn't have the time to join in, even though I wanted to. And then I thought this would be a nice way to give my friends Christmas presents, because you get to choose your present.

The format:

* Choose a letter of the alphabet

* Choose a word which begins with that letter

* Choose your fandom and the characters you want me to write about

* Sit back and wait for the result.

Fandoms: Sailor Moon (including "Exiles" stories); Fruits Basket; Harry Potter (I will attempt anything for you here, in the spirit of Christmas, so bring on your alternative pairings); Chronicles of Narnia; Doctor Who; Heroes; I'll even attempt Veronica Mars & House M.D., if you want, but I warn you, it might not be good.

Requested by phoenixfyre13
Characters: Molly Prewett/Arthur Weasley
Theme: Almost

It wasn't like her. She wasn't the kind of girl who went out at night, she wasn't the kind of girl who broke the rules. That's what she'd been telling herself ever since she'd been Sorted in Gryffindor. But now she had to accept it.

Why else would she be standing here in the middle of the Great Hall with Arthur Weasley, teaching him to waltz?

"I don't think this is going to work," he said, trying not to laugh. "The man's supposed to lead, I know that much."

"You'll get the hang of it!" she told him, almost commanding him. "Now let's try again!" She took his hand. "Now you go back... two, three... forward... two, three... and turn, two, three... back, two, three... see, you're catching on!" She smiled at him and he smiled back. The moonlight from the ceiling glinted on his glasses and Molly's heart skipped a beat. She stumbled over her feet, almost knocking him off balance.

"Hey!" He caught her shoulders. "Molly? Is something wrong?"

"No," she said breathlessly, keeping her face hidden. "Nothing."

"Molly..." He touched her cheek, making her look up at him. "What is it?"

She chewed her lip, wondering how much to tell him, whether to tell him at all. "You're a good dancer," she said finally.

He chuckled. "Flattery won't get you anywhere, Miss Prewett."

"It's true. You're improving all the time. You-"

There was a creak. She stopped talking and they both looked at the door. Arthur's grip tightened. "Molly," he whispered, barely moving his lips, "follow my lead." Then he took her hand and waltzed her over to the shadows, where they stood very still while one of the doors opened and Mr Ogg, the caretake, peered into the hall. His abnormally large nose sniffed once, then twice.

"Could have sworn I heard music," he muttered, then closed the door again.

Molly almost collapsed in relief. "If he'd caught us..."

"He wouldn't have caught you," Arthur said gallantly. "I'd save you."

She glanced up at him with a smile that he probably couldn't see. "I know." Then she stood on tiptoes and pressed her lips against his cheek. "You'd protect me from anything."
