"sometimes, you don't realize you're drowning when you're trying to be everyone else's anchor." "they expect me to be perfect, and you fail to understand that there are consequences that i must face, if i don't live up to their expectations." "i look at her and see everything i have ever wanted, but my problem lies within the fact that when i look at myself, i see nothing that she deserves." *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Ever since Charlie Hawthorne was born, it has been instilled in him that as a noble wizard boy of pureblood, there are expectations that he must live up to. His father, Fenwick Hawthorne, has been adamant about teaching him all about the horrific ways of pureblood supremacy, and yet, Charlie could not be anymore against these ideologies... However, thinking that he would forever suppress his opposing thoughts of pureblood supremacy, Charlie's world is turned upside down when he meets three people that make him realize the importance of remaining true to himself; the half-blood chosen one, a blood-traitor of pureblood, and a filthy, little mudblood. It is through Charlie's friendships with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley that allow him to understand the differences between purebloods, half-bloods, and muggle-borns. But, it is through Charlie's undeniable love for Hermione Granger that gives him the strength and the courage to put a stop to these differences, proving to his father that such ideologies could not be any more wrong. This is a story about Charlie Hawthorne - the boy who loved. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* *DISCLAIMER* This is a work of fan fiction using characters from the Harry Potter world, which is trademarked by J.K.
