Finn was nervous. Beyond nervous, even. Will had invited her to this New Year’s Eve Gala or ball thing (she wasn’t sure if it was one, the other, or both), and it had dawned on her only a few days prior that this sort of event was so far beyond what she was used to that it was now making her go a little crazy. The holidays had been weird enough, with her parents coming over briefly to visit her and Ellie, and then heading back to New York only a few days after Christmas. Seeing them in England was the same as when her sister had first flown over – it was strange that they existed in the same space as her in a place they had never been before. They were supposed to be at home, not here! After getting over one of the strangest feeling Christmases ever, Finn was ready to get back to her thing, whatever that was these days, and now there was this gala. She wanted to go, but it was beyond overwhelming.
And yet she was standing in the entrance to her apartment building, waiting for Will to come and pick her up. Going dress shopping was also strange, because she didn’t really have any formal wear. Having to explain that it was a classier New Year’s Eve party worked well enough, but she wasn’t sure if what they had given her was quite what she needed for this thing. She had been to formal work things before when she was with the Aurors, but magical formals were different from no-maj ones, and all she had to go off of were quick searches online and movies. Like those were the best things to go off of. Anxiously rocking back and forth on her heels in the lobby, the lights of what she hoped was Will’s car looked to be entering the drive-thru of her building.
