And I Can't Change: A Fred Weasley Fanfic
Life is good until you realize that it isn't. That was my life. I went to one of the best wizarding schools out there, I had high marks, and I was doing well. Life was good, but I didn't do anything. I woke. I learned, I ate. I slept. Life was just one long drawn out continuous cycle. Not one day had come when something happened to me. The Boy Who Lived came to Hogwarts. The Sorcerer's Stone was destroyed. The Chamber of Secrets was found. But it was like I was watching from in front of a screen, a separate being from a different dimension. I was just Dextra Callister. The student you might occasionally chat to in Potions class, or the girl you were partnered with in Herbology. I wasn't a friend. I wasn't important. I was a shade of a person.
And each year, I waited for someone to notice that I was there and I was a person and I needed to feel wanted too. But every year came and passed, as did everything else in my life. The only constants were my family, and time I got to spend with them seemed to be getting increasingly short. And just when it seemed like I would always be a shadow lost in the background, Fred and George Weasley came hurtling into my life.
