I took prompts to celebrate my flist's hitting the 800 friends mark, and I'll be posting the results as I complete the drabbles.

12. samson28 prompted me with: George/Pansy and grandchildren.

Life as an Anodyne for Loss (G; George/Pansy; 100 words)

George stared at the twins with a loving, yet somehow hollow expression, and Pansy sighed. No matter how many years went by, George remained haunted by Fred; she doubted anyone else realised how much. Pushing a silvering strand of hair behind one ear, she moved to stand next to him, gazing down at their sleeping grandchildren and slipping a hand into his.

He didn't start. "Knew you were there, Pans."

"Of course."

"They're beautiful girls—take after you," George murmured, turning.

Pansy could see nothing of his loss in George's expression now. "Thank Merlin for that."

George laughed, and they smiled.

That's very sweet. A lost loved one can't ever be replaced, but love can soothe the loss.
