All right… I’m glad it’s a girl. And I hope she’ll be a fool—that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool…
You see, I think everything’s terrible anyhow… And I know. I’ve been everywhere and seen everything and done everything. (The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald)

ONDINE  |  ( listen )

When she had breathed her song, she begged me – begged me – to put her ring on my finger; to be her husband and sink with her down – down to her drowned palace and be king of all the lakes. I told her I loved a mortal woman. Abashed and vexed, she dissolved into tears and laughter; vanished in a scatter of rain – white streams across the dark night of my window. - Ondine by Aloysius Bertrand

Can we please talk about what Amos Diggory says in GoF for a second:

"I said to him, I said – Ced, that’ll be something to tell your grandchildren, that will … You beat Harry Potter!"

To tell your grandchildren. Grandchildren. Not knowing Cedric would never have grandchildren. I’m so sad.

Anonymous: No, but you know Cedric being canonically sweet and caring and brave, but also dying because he was in the wrong place at the wrong moment. So, Muggle!AU (he gets to live after 17, yay!) but decides to become a war journalist/photographer or idek, volunteering in war-stricken countries. And it doesn't end up well (I'm sorry, I was watching a documentary about Tim Hetherington)

It sounds like Cedric would definitely do that if he were a Muggle. Sweet and caring oh my baby, the wrong place wrong time thing totally fits into that picture too. Man, it hurts. He’s so precious and innocent and only wants to help :(.
