Summary: An HP version of The Nutcracker Ballet by Tchaikovsky.
A/N: This was the first D/G fanfiction I ever attempted and ever posted for public review. All Harry Potter references are for books 1 - 5 (but BEFORE learning Ginny Weasley's full name).


Ginny’s expression brightened a little… ‘What could these two possibly have up their sleeves now?’ she wondered.

Fred extended his hand and helped Ginny up. She then followed her brothers through the kitchen and out the back door. The cold air stung her cheeks, but it was a happy sensation… reminding her of her lovely dream when she and Draco rode the magnificent sleigh through the falling snow. Tears suddenly welled in her eyes once more so she looked up into the still black sky… staring at the moon and stars… hoping that she could hold back her tears.

Ginny looked back down, but Fred and George were no longer by her side. Suddenly, she felt two strong hands grasp her shoulders from behind. Instantly, she froze. The hands made their way downward along her arms and then gently turned her around.

There, before her, stood the one person she longed to be with forever… the one person she had loved more than life itself… Draco Malfoy.

“Is this a dream?” she whispered.

Draco smirked, “No…” He cupped her face with his hands and just gazed into her eyes.

Ginny could feel her face flush and the tears that had been welling in her eyes spilled forth down her cheeks. She gasped in happy shock… Draco then smiled.

“You did save me, Virginia.”

Ginny arched an eyebrow, “What are you talking about?” She pulled away slightly and noticed that he was wearing a wizard soldier uniform. “But I thought you went to France… you’re a Healer… I…”

“Shhh…” Draco placed his index finger against her lips. “There’s much that you don’t know… so I’ll explain.” He paused for a moment and then took a deep breath. “You see, the story about me traveling to France to become a Healer was a cover story… Dumbledore’s idea actually.”

Ginny’s eyes widened at this realization.

“Funny… never thought that he’d try to protect me.” He smiled sheepishly at the thought. “Anyway, I was really a secret spy and I was treading on some pretty unstable ground there for a while. No one knew about my missions except for Dumbledore, Snape and… well… Fred and George.”

“Ohhh…”

“Fred and George as you know fought in the Great Wizarding War along side your other brother and Potter… but what you did not know was that they were part of a special secret organization within the wizarding army… even Potter didn’t know about this organization. Well, I had gone to Dumbledore before my graduation from Hogwarts… and I told him that I wanted to fight in the war along with everyone else… and I knew that I would never be accepted into the regular army, my past reputation prevented that… so I volunteered for special missions… to be a double-agent of sorts. Dumbledore liked the idea and then had me talk with Professor Snape. That’s when I found out about the Order and how he acted as a double-agent as well. Snape trained me in several things… I learned occlumency and I am now quite the transfigurer…”

Ginny gasped.

“Yes… that figurine was indeed me… not a bad job, eh?”

Ginny smiled, “And the dream?”

“Fred and George’s idea… they are quite brilliant in the ways of charms… quite amazing. I now understand why Dumbledore was adamant that they be involved in the secret organization.”

“How?”

Draco laughed, “They placed a charm on me so that when you touched me you would be drawn to me and then have a dream that would hopefully rekindle our past. Also, when your brothers located me after all these years, I had been placed under this curse… so I was sort of suffering from a form of amnesia. The top mediwizards of England all said that the only way that the curse could be fully removed was if I came into contact with my truest love.”

“I see…”

“Well, apparently your brothers listen to me talk in my sleep because they knew that I had been in love with you since the days of Hogwarts!!”

Just then, Fred and George walked up to the two.

“Like our present, Gin?” George asked.

“Oh yes!! How did you ever find him?” she exclaimed.

Fred laughed, “We’ve been keeping an eye on him for years!”

“Yes, years!” George continued. “While on a mission, he had been captured by a Death Eater and was placed under a very strange sort of curse.”

“Luckily, we rescued him before he was brought before Lord Voldemort.”

“And then Dumbledore requested we make up some sort of story about him going to France or something… there are still other Death Eaters about… we all didn’t want them coming after him thinking that he was still involved in the army.”

“We all figured that if they thought he left the army in his amnesiac state and just lived out some ordinary wizard’s life… they’d leave him alone.”

“And then… when we felt it was safe, we came up with this idea… we’d been helping Draco learn more about his curse and when we finally learned the remedy…”

“We just knew that we had to bring him to you! We knew he loved you! He always said your name in his sleep during the war.” Fred let out another loud laugh.

“Not to mention that Dumbledore himself loved the idea!”

Ginny flung herself at her brothers who each took turns swinging her around. When they set her down, she walked over to Draco and was swallowed in his embrace. He held her so tightly.

“I should have told you this long ago…” Draco whispered in her ear so that only she could hear. “I love you… and now that I have you, I’m never letting you go…”

Ginny looked into Draco’s eyes just then. Slowly, he leaned towards her and placed his lips against hers. Ginny truly was in heaven… she was with her Draco… and he loved her.

Fred and George quietly walked away from the two lovers… smiling broadly… and knowing full well that they had given their little sister the best gift that they could ever have given her. That, above all else, made them the happiest they had ever been.
