Why This Must Be Read: This is a fave from before every Chelsie lover died from the proposal. It’s sweet and fluffy and fits the couple perfectly. It’s nice to see Charles out of his comfort zone but so committed to wooing Elsie. With this story it’s very easy to forget all Carson’s gruff manners. He’s a man in love and he wants to show Elsie just what she means to him. I really like how Hogwarts Duo has letters with the two of them throughout the fic. They get sappy but it works because I think it works for the time period and when you remember who the two are, finding love so late in life I think they deserve more than a little sappy happiness. Such a lovely piece of work.
