Fandom: Harry Potter
Ginny takes her comfort where she can find it, these days, and the screams for mercy from the dungeons mingle with her moans of pleasure.
She arches against Hermione's delving fingers, doesn't even pretend she cares about her friend's pleasure. She doesn't. Years ago she didn't want to believe that courage and sacrifice don't matter if you don't *survive*, but she's grown up, and her beliefs have changed.
Outside the sky erupts: showering down fire and smoking debris, and casting a brief flare across the dark lines etched into her arm.
Ginny's on the winning side, and nothing else matters.
