Fred Daniel Weasley- Jacob Artist
He was, quite unsurprisingly, sorted into Gryffindor with his best friends and like his namesake and father before him. He is the jokey one in his friendship group but he can still be serious and is known to be the one that stops James before he does something stupid. He is a very likable person and you will struggle to find someone who doesn’t like him.
He and Roxanne have a very tight knit relationship which lots of the other cousins are slightly jealous of. The two barely ever argue and if they do it’s for a very short period of time. Fred looks up to his big sister in a lot of ways. He is always there for Roxanne no matter what she does and she is always there for him. Fred makes it his job to be Roxanne’s heartbreak doctor and will drop anything to help her out of a bad situation. Fred and Angelina get along really well however Fred is a little bit scared of his mother. Fred’s always terrified that one day he will receive a Howler from his mother during breakfast in the Great Hall. I think it’s safe to say that Fred never tells Angelina when he fails a test or gets a detention. Fred and George, though close, have a rough relationship, with Fred II being so similar to Fred. George loves Fred II with all his heart but sometimes the memory of his brother can make him a little upset, Fred II always understands and takes a step back when he knows his father is upset. Fred gets along with all of his cousins as he is a very likable, funny and understanding person- he is the one they always go to if they need something done.
He and James are best friends even before they go to Hogwarts. They spend most of their time before joining at Fred’s house, talking to George about pranking ideas. They chat about what they are going to get up to years before they ever walk the halls of the castle. As soon as they join Hogwarts they take to prankster roles almost instantly and they both take it very seriously. Dominique, being in the same year as the two, joins the group and he and Dominique start to become closer after. Fred likes to take the more educational role in the group until Frank Longbottom comes along and takes over. Fred is always the one there to make sure that they never go too far with their pranks, and he makes sure that no one gets hurt or in serious trouble. Out of the five of them he is the one they all listen to the most so if he tells them to stop, they stop.
In school, quite surprisingly, Fred is very smart. Even if he doesn’t revise for a test he will get nearly full marks. He gets study periods with Molly and Roxanne in the library to make sure he keeps up his level of grades. Though school bores him quite a bit, Fred wants to do well and make his mother proud. James and Dominique tease him a little on his knowledge but after it gets them out of a lot of trouble they let it go. He and Frank start to enforce learning into Dom and James’ brains but after not much effect they both give up.
Fred is very popular with everyone in Hogwarts. The teachers like him because he is polite and smart while still funny. The kids in the years below him love him because he is a prankster and cheers up their days. The girls in his year are interested in him but he never really takes much notice to it because that’s just the kind of person his is. He is a keen Quidditch player becoming a beater, along with his sister, in his second year. He is one of the best Gryffindor has ever had but much to his distain he is often compare to his namesake.
Fred deals with a lot of pressure from both his peers and his parents to be like Fred (I). Fred likes to be his own person and as much as he looks up to his uncle, he doesn’t enjoy being constantly compared to him. He tends to ignore the comparisons and comments but at times it can get too much for him.
Fred leaves Hogwarts and joins Auror training with his best friends. He passes his test a couple of weeks after Dominique and six months before James but he takes up a desk job in the ministry first, trying to stay low and calm for a couple of weeks or so. He works inside the UK most of the time as he is not the biggest fan of travelling. He and James work in the same unit together while still writing to keep in contact with Dominique over in Europe. Frank and Fred partner up for a couple of cases and the three of them remain close. However after Dominique’s accident Fred starts to no longer want to be an Auror so he takes up a job with his Dad in the shop.
When Dominique and Frank announce their wedding plans, Fred is in no way shocked. Fred takes the job of delivering the invitations; he even goes over to New York to give one to Frank’s younger sister Grace. He flies back with her and the two start to form a close friendship and during wedding preparations Fred starts to develop feelings towards her. After the ceremony, Fred drives Grace to the after party meal thing and he kisses her in the car, the two then spend the whole night together. However in the morning Grace leaves without saying goodbye and Fred is left alone.
After three months or so, Fred goes to Graces apartment in New York and asks her to come home with him. They start dating and move in together in a small flat in Diagon Ally. They take a while before getting married but when they do they move out of their flat and buy a house in Kent. They have four children together that become a huge hassle for them but Fred loves them all deeply.
(They are finally back! Sorry this took so long!)
