Gabrielle Delacour

17 September
I was born in 1984 to Gerard and Babette Delacour. I have lived in France my entire life and was only allowed to venture out into the "real" world when I was ten and took part in the Triwizard Tournament with my older sister, Fleur (who was one of the Three Four Champions I might mention!).

My pere (father) died when I was twelve, just after Fleur had married Billy Weasley and my mere (mother) pulled me from Beauxbaton's to be home schooled. My mere and I are very close, but I have missed my sister, and my surrogate sister, Aveline, for years. I am finishing my last year of studies and I have not yet decided what I want to do with my life. All I know is this summer (2001) I have begun to feel restless, wondering what life would be like outside of France...

I am counting down the days until I get to find out.

What has happened to me July 2001 and Onward...

When I am sixteen, I beging to wonder what it would be like to have a little bit of freedom like Fleur, my older sister. She is living in England now, even after her divorce from Billy Weasley. Growing restless with my isolation, I take several opportunities to sneak away from my guard, Randelli, and explore the grounds of our home. July sees many changes in my life, including vacationing in the French Riviera with mother, Aveline and being able to talk to my sister Fleur again. Soon after I am introduced to I meet Bellatrix Lestrange and her nephew, Draco Malfoy and in August, mother and I move to Great Britain to be near my sister.

While in Britain, I meet one of Bill's brothers in their joke shop and later embarrass myself in front of him. Mother holds a beautiful gala where I dance with Draco. A few days later I see Fred Weasley again and for some stupid reason lie to him about my identity. I am given approval to go on a date with Draco Malfoy but I can't seem to stay away from Zonko's Joke Shop, and a certain brother of Billy's.

I continue to run into Fred Weasley and what's better, Fleur and mother seem to get past their differences and we are a family again!

But in September, Fred and I share our first kiss, though he still doesn't know my name is not Sophia. We go on a date and I can't stop thinking about him, even as we dine with Malfoy. My relationship with my mother becomes more strained and I sneak out to meet Fred

However, my guilt catches up with me, and I come clean to Fred about my identity where I believe he rejects me. I return home with a broken heart but take my vows as a Veela and see my future.

After a close brush with death, I am reunited with Fred and we take another step forward in our relationship.

I spend much of my time in October with Fred, lying to my mother to be with him as she travels and tends to her business. During this time, I stay with Fleur who begins to date a big nosed Healer named Paddy. I get to meet Fred's twin and his girlfriend, Cho, in November and while they are supportive of our relationship, Billy is not. Fred's mother and father eventually approve of us as well, and I find I like the Weasleys very, very much. Mother returns from her travels and asks me to escort Nicholas Coza, the son of a family friend around England to which I agree.

He arrives in December and I don't think much about him as I prepare to reunite Bill and Fleur with a Christmas Party Fred and I planned. We are successful! And my sister and Billy are together once more. But my own Christmas is not as pleasant as on Christmas Even I see Fred and Angelina embrace and cannot confront Fred before mother takes me to Romania. There she stuns me by promising my hand in marriage to Nicholas and I quickly manipulate my situation to Apparate back to England and into Fred's waiting arms, with the help of my bodyguard, Randelli.

Nicholas is not one to give up so easily, and he stalks me in January and attacks both Fred and myself before Randelli disposes of him. I'm terrified to tell mother of Fred, and Nicholas, but I know in my heart she'll understand and forgive me.

But to my surprise, in February, mother discovers my relationship with Fred with a set of rather graphic photos and she cuts me from her life for my "betrayal". I'm heartbroken, but Fred is supportive and there for me. In March Fred pulls a few strings and I am accepted into Hogwarts to finish my NEWTs. There I meet some new friends, including a boy named William who asks me out in April.
