venturous1 prompted me with Neville/Ginny: flying, fighting, forgetting.

Without a Fight (G; Aberforth, Neville, Harry, implied Neville/Ginny; 100 words)

"No fighting, boys. There's been too much already," Aberforth said, leaving them.

"How's Ginny?" Neville asked, taking a chair.

Harry crossed his arms. "Under the circumstances, shouldn't you know better than I do?"

"I know she doesn't forgive you for flying off without her."

Harry's mouth worked, but no sound came out of it.

"And I don't expect you to, er, be forgetting her right away because you're . . . close and all, but—"

"Oh, hells, Neville. I don't know what we are."

"Over, I guess," Neville replied gently.

"Yeah," said Harry, running a hand through his hair, "I suppose we are."

so the drabble sounds interesting. but i'm not entirely sure what happened.

the most i got is that harry and ginny broke up for reasons, and now ginny and neville are together.

so when Nev says "forgive you for flying off without her" mean that harry left her and didn;t told her about the horcrux hunt, etc- correct?

but i dont understand what neville means by this line- "And I don't expect you to, er, be forgetting her right away because you're . . . close and all, but—"

an explanation would be nice.

I like to let people decide for themselves what's happening, but you and I seem to be on the same page. :)

also it's a nice surprise to see a neville/ginny drabble. the more conventional het pairings seem rare in your journal, so this was nice

Looks like Neville showed what he was made of after the trio went off on their quest and Ginny was able to see and appreciate the quiet courage and strength that he had.
