Title: With Guest.
Team: Ron
Rating/Warnings: Swearing words.
Wordcount: 408
Prompt: Fight!Fight!Fight!
Disclaimer: I do not own Weasleys.

As Ron emerged from the Floo, Percy bustled over to him and accepted the ribbon-decorated gift for the baby.

“Did you bring a guest?” Percy checked. “You weren't sure.”

Ron stepped aside as the flames flared green, and examined Percy's face as Draco stepped onto the hearth. Percy looked stunned.

“You've met Draco?” Ron asked.

Draco stretched his alabaster arm and, automatically, Percy took his hand and shook it. He shot Ron a desperate, questioning look, mumbling, “Mr Malfoy. So pleased.”

“I hope it's the right size.” Draco indicated the gift.

“Lovely wrapping,” Percy choked out.

“Draco did it,” Ron said proudly.

Percy flapped vague hands around as he asked, stumblingly, “And you two, erm, how? You are? Um?”

Ron took a deep breath. “He's my partner.”

“Business?” asked Percy hopefully.

“Life,” Ron clarified.

Percy sighed and sat down heavily. Ron looked tense, so Draco gave him a reassuring peck on the cheek. Percy covered his eyes. Summoning up nervous determination, Ron took his boyfriend's arm and marched him into the sitting room. A hush fell around the crowded room like dominoes toppling.

George spoke first: “Why the fuck have we got a Death Eater here?”

“He's with me!” Ron replied defiantly.

Every man in the room squared his shoulders and so did most of the women.

“Why?” Hermione demanded stridently.

Ron swallowed. Draco wanted to reassure him, but he didn't want to antagonise anyone.

“Because we are a couple.” Ron had started off boldly, but his voice had failed him with a squeak towards the end.

A mumbling groan spread amongst the guests. As one body, they moved towards Ron and Draco. Draco reached into his sleeve for his wand, but Ron grabbed his wrist. If they ever wanted acceptance from his relatives, then hexing them wouldn't help. The lovers looked around nervously as the Weasleys moved in.

Suddenly there was a rapping sound. All heads turned to where Audrey stood in the kitchen doorway, baby held on her hip, a wooden spoon in the other hand, with which she was knocking on the wall.

“If any one of you spoils my daughter's naming day by fighting then I will never forgive you,” she warned. “Every one of our guests will be treated with respect. Is this clear?”

In a rumble of resigned muttering, the redheaded army fell back. Audrey walked through them to introduce baby Molly to the man she referred to as “Uncle Draco.”

Having been the voice of reason before you captured the scene beautifully, congratulations.

Yeh, see you did it again - now, I want to see the fic that extends this scene into a lovely hurt/comfort extravaganza of snuggles ;). You seem to have a knack for hitting my favourite set-ups.
