lol - okay guys, time to talk fanfiction. =D I'm looking for a specific piece, and I may have to go into this pairings fandom comms in order to find this fic, but I'll start right here with my beloved flist first.
I coulda sworn I had gotten this rec from off of minisinoo
's rec list from medicine wheel, anyway - it's C/Hr (Cedric/Hermione) Post+DH - so, AU of course, and it's where Hermione is working at ...I think The Quibbler (could've been the Prophet) and the establishment had actually become reputable
, which is why I said 'The Quibbler' first. ANYWAY, Cedric is hired on in management and the story opens up with Hermione running late for an intro meeting with Diggory, and she comes bursting in very obviously disheveled, and...is witheringly accused of smelling like a brothel(or the like) by Diggory.
Of course, this ends up being a plan devised by the Weasley Twins (they had perfumed her clothing the night before) and Hermione had been running late because she'd tried to rid the odor from her clothes, to no avail of course.
Basically, I remember a few of the whole of HP characters being mentioned, and something about Lavender saying the whole ordeal between Cedric and Hermione was nicely scandalous...or not. I can't quite remember either way. Cedric uses a cane, Hermione insists on quitting because they just cannot
work together, as she puts it. Or something or other. I swear, if anyone else had read this, they'd probably be able to make sense of my gibberish.
Help guys! Link me if you can!!
