Hi everyone! I have been a regular reader for years now but finally decided to write my own! It's my first fanfic so please be gentle but honest!

I own nothing! And this story does not follow the books or movies.

For Love or Cause by: Pansyfansy

Chapter 1: betrothal duty

Pansy P.O.V.

It was close to the beginning of seventh year and yet again I'm a prefect….woot woot…. I know what you must be thinking, "poor little pureblooded witch" But you're wrong. I'm actually quite happy. My mother, Persephone Parkinson is every bit a loving mother as she is a regal Lady. Ever since I can remember I've wanted to be just like her. We look alike. Both of us have long black hair that curls and a Snow White complexion. The only difference is our eyes. While my mother has these amazing royal blue orbs I have my father's hazel eyes that every so often will go from brown to green. Father says depending on my mood. Ha! My father Patriklus Parkinson is your typical Lord with only one variation he completely adores his "little flower." Me. While most Lords want a strapping son to leave there fortunes to, my mother says that my father was ecstatic the day I was born. And before you say anything, No, my parents are not Deatheaters. We Parkinson's have prided ourselves on being neutral when it comes to the war between "good and evil." I live in Parkinson Palace which is a gorgeous estate that is both homey and luxurious. So what do you ask that has got me in such a bipolar mood? Well adding to our prefect letters (and O.W.L.S. which by the way I got all Outstanding's, but since I'm not in Gryffindor who cares right!) Dumbledore also sent out an interesting invitation. It seems that he wants to meet with a certain few of us before the start of term. Which brings us here….to Hogwarts.

Harry P.O.V.

Saying I do not want to be here right now would be the bloody understatement of the week….no the year! As you can tell I'm not in the best of moods right now. After losing…Sirius last year you could say that my "cup of water" has reached its full capacity. So staying away from me right now would be good…for everyone. Why the bloody hell does Dumbledore even want to see us? I mean thanks for the whole Quidditch Captain/Prefect thing but I really don't need a damn tea party right now! I'm sick and tired of everyone treating me like some freaking crystal ball ready to shatter in any minute! Oh great the joyous events about to begin.

Pansy P.O.V.

Dumbledore just walked in with Professor McGonagall and Snape. And as I look around I noticed the other people present. There is Cho Chang, Padma Patil, Micheal Corner, Blaise Zambini, Daphne Greengrass and Draco Malfoy, and then of course the Golden Trio. What in the name of Merlin could Dumbledore possibly want with all of us? And then the old fool said it.

"You are all here today to help unite the Wizarding World. If you all would look around you at the others present in this room," he paused and with a mischievous twinkle in his eyes he continued, "you will find your betrothed who you will marry within the next months."

Pansy & Harry P.O.V.

"WHAT!"

End of chapter one! Please read and review! And lots of comments would be great! Remember it's my first fanfic! LOL I'll update soon.

Thanx
