a/n: Drabble written for Maria because she was the first person to tell me that Ginny/Draco were indeed one of the alluded-to pairings in One-Trick Pony. She wanted Doyle/girl!Blaise or Buffy/boy!Blaise. Obviously, I chose the former. Hope you like!
a/n2: Also, JennMarie, if you read this, I owe you a drabble for guessing the other pairing. Email me your request?Halcyon
adj: idyllically calm and peaceful; suggesting happy tranquillity.
Hogsmeade seemed a strange place to emerge from a dimensional portal. It seemed an even stranger place to discover a young woman with bright blue eyes and magic seeping from her every pore. It was where it all happened, though, where his life changed; the life that, by all rights, should’ve been well over by then.
And, he supposes, it was, because this new existence is not the same, for all its familiar characteristics. There is still evil to be quelled and visions to received, still a beautiful woman he can love, but it is not the same, and he knows this.
He knows that it will never be the same, because although it was the same dark curls and same classic features and same sarcastic wit that attracted him to this woman, he is well acquainted with their differences.
And he loves her all the more for them.
She is more ‘him’ than her would-be twin ever was; she is sweeter, just a touch less fiery, easier to be with; above all, she is real. She is tangible. She is his.
They are more comfortable together, he and his Emma, than he and his Princess could have ever been.
