oops, I made a thing. Jalle as firsties. yay. Sorry it’s a little rough, but it felt wrong not leaving a present, but I wanted to get it done before I went to bed.
-kisses her- Damnit, Alle, if you weren’t what was best for me how could you possibly think Karen is? I can’t lose you again. Please, Alle. Please. I love you. Please don’t leave me again.
~leans head against his for a short second before whispering~ I love you James. But a family is a family. I can’t be dependant upon you when you have a baby to think about. I just… I don’t want to leave but… I don’t want to leave you…
jamespotterthegreat replied to your post: Alle… What— NO! No, no, no, no, Alle, please don’t say that. Please don’t say that. Take it back, Alle. I need you. I NEED you, Alle. Please take it back. Please say we can still be together. Please.
((ask limit)) Alle… No, I can’t lose you again. Please don’t do this. Please. I just got you back.
I… I’m sorry… James I just… ~blinks back tears~
Alle! I— -reaches out to her. If he’s successful, he plans to kiss her-
Alle was in a state of shock. Pure terrified shock. Was Karen telling the truth? Was she really pregnant? Was she really baring the child of them man Alle loved? Was James going to be a father? Her mind was whirling and she couldn’t think straight. All she knew was that she had to find James. It wouldn’t be hard. He was either in one of two places and Alle didn’t have to think long before she knew where he’d be. The Quidditch pitch. Just like when Alle needed to sort out her mind she visited the music room and sang for hours on end, James would visit the Quidditch pitch and aimlessly chase after a loose snitch until his troubles melted away.
So, taking a deep breath Alle grabbed her own broomstick from under her bed and walked quickly in the direction of the Quidditch pitch. She had no idea what she could say or do to help. And Alle had no idea what would happen. But she had to be there for him. She had to be there for James. Even if this whole mess could kill there relationship stone dead she needed to be there to support her best friend. No matter what the cost.
Alle entered the grounds and saw him almost instantly. A black silhouette against the blue sky. Taking a deep breath Alle walked forwards. Jumping on her broom and flying swiftly up to meet him. He didn’t notice her at first. He was lost in his own thoughts, and Alle couldn’t blame him. She was only feeling a fraction of what he must be going through. Which made Alle feel guilty, she shouldn’t be this scared. Not when James must be so very terrified.
As Alle made her way closer his eyes met her own. She didn’t speak. She just looked into his eyes. Hovering about a meter away from him. They stayed silent for quite some time. It wasn’t awkward. No, it was more scared. Neither wanted to accept what was happening. Yet, one of them would have to say something soon.
So Alle opened her mouth. “Lovely day isn’t it?”
The first thing James did whenever he was stressed, whenever he needed to think, to figure something out… Was to go to the pitch. The distraction would keep him from going crazy while he thought this through. They had been safe every time, hadn’t they? Then she couldn’t possibly be… But James had demanded the two of them go to the hospital wing to be sure. And sure enough, he’d seen the results. She was pregnant.
She was pregnant.
The snitch he had been trying to catch slipped through his fingers and he cursed. She was pregnant. James had gotten her pregnant. He sped off after the little golden ball, his eyes trained on it. This wasn’t particularly a good way to practice the position; there was nothing going on, nothing to possibly make him lose the ball… Until he saw a familiar head of hair off a little to the side. He stopped, allowing her to go closer.
What did he say to his girlfriend? Where did this leave them? He didn’t think he needed to apologize, at least not for getting Karen pregnant. At the time he and Alle hadn’t been together and James had thought there was no hope for that anyway. Maybe he should apologize, though, for the things to come. Karen, of course, would make sure all hell broke loose so that James would be with her again. Did this make Alle the other woman? He couldn’t lose her. Not again. Losing her once was hard enough.
"Not a cloud in the sky," he said, his voice quiet. "But I think there’s a storm of another kind coming our way," he said, meaning nothing as to the weather.
//I don’t know/can’t remember what Alle has planned for a future canon job, but this screams future Jalle to me.
You’re the first one
When things turn out bad
You know I’ll never be lonely
You’re my only one
And I love the things
I really love the things that you do
You’re my best friend
Ooh you make me live
I’m happy at home
You’re my best friend
I Loved Her First
"You could at least smile for me today, you know,"
"Nahhhh, I only smile for Potters and Weasleys,"
"Daaaaad, I’m still a Potter for a while longer,"
"I know, munchkin. I can’t believe today’s the day,"
"Seems just yesterday I was holding you in the hospital, all seven pounds of you,"
"Daddy, I’m grown up now,"
"You’re still my baby girl. No one is ever going to love you as much as I do,"
"He loves me too, Dad,"
"I still love you first and I love you best"
"What about Mum? I thought you loved her best?"
"Shhhhhh, don’t give away our secret!"
"I’m standing right here, James!"
-laughes and kisses Elizabeth-

“Please don’t go,”
“You know… This makes a change doesn’t it. You begging me not to leave.”
“You can get a new job. You don’t have to leave me alone with my crazy family.”
“Two weeks James. It’s just a course in York, I’m not out risking my life or anything.”
“I’ll come with you?”
“Please don’t leave me Alle.”
“Grow a pair Potter.”
“Shut up, you were a wreck the first time I left.”
“It was your first mission. You could have died. Can you really blame me?”
“Well no… But I still don’t want you to leave.”
“James… I have to do this. It’s only two weeks.”
“Two weeks is an awfully long time.”
“Stop being so pathetic.”
“Your mean to me.”
“And stupidly enough I still love you.”
“And I love you too. Now kiss me.”
“What am I your slave?”
