James I's parents tend to overcomplicate just about everything, including "the most basic standards of respectability."
(has undergone significant edits + conversion to a one-shot)
'Courtship' does not go quite as James's parents might have expected.

Let's just say that James's father did not exactly sweep his mother off her feet.
Astoria and Draco had planned to have a relaxing, lowkey romantic evening. That goes pear-shaped when they're cornered by werewolf extremists who aren't thrilled that Draco has been helping to lock them up.
Bill and Fleur's English lessons take an interesting turn.
James and Roxanne make the best of the first Hogsmeade weekend as first years.

Meeting banshees in the Forbidden Forest, setting the Great Hall on fire, and smuggling in contraband: Victoire and Fred Weasley are trouble with a capital T.

When Bill and Fleur’s eldest daughter bounced down the stairs in the late afternoon on day in early July, it was clear that she had plans she hadn’t bothered to mention to her parents.
The way the genuine, open smile on Victoire's grandmother slid into a polite one when Victoire kissed him with a little more ardor than was strictly necessary under the mistletoe had been enough to make him avoid the mistletoe for the rest of the evening.

Johanna Greengrass calls Teddy on a serious case of mentionitis.
For the wonderful ImaRavenclaw's Very Christmassy Love Challenge
Teddy is not at his most reasonable when he overhears a friend planning to ask Victoire Weasley out.
Victoire steeled herself and held up her left hand. “So Teddy proposed. And I said yes.”

I don’t really know how I got to the point where I was entirely too drunk and alone in a Death Eater’s flat with him, but there it is.

It's still only September, but Rose has already jinxed Scorpius Malfoy's hair and can't stop eavesdropping on his embarrassing conversations - about her. He can't figure out whether he'd rather hex her or kiss her.
Well, O.W.L. year was never going to be simple.

Astoria's painful memories surrounding Christmas during the war clash with Draco's insisting that she help him decorate his tree. Feelings are messy, trauma is messier, but it all (sort of) comes out in the wash.

“You’ve said three things in the last five minutes that I found genuinely surprising, the least significant of which was telling me to pin you down on your bed while we make out. Stop calling me a prat for reacting to all of it.”

Slytherins might not appreciate being served fried snake for dinner.
Slytherins are gullible. Roxanne exploits this.
Lily needs a little space from her family, so she does the most sensible thing she can think of: she runs away to live in Edwin Dursley's closet.
I don't really know how I ended up dating a traumatized and combative girl who had very nearly been a Gryffindor, but there it is.

Daphne hears a rumor about her estranged sister that she finds genuinely astonishing.
