“Such a shame..”

“..What a disgrace,”

“And I thought she was far better than that..”

Ah yes - rumours weren't really hard to spread around. Lies spread faster than wildfire around the school, and [Name] could probably guess that every student had heard the rumour. Some looked at her with such pity, and some just didn't care. Or - maybe they just didn't want to be part of it.

“This is.. insufferable. Truly. This has gone mad, I say. Arthur! Are you even listening?”

“With all due respect,” Arthur said as he flipped the page of his current new book. “I think you should just ignore them. They are just rumours, after all. Nothing more. What could possibly go wrong, [Name]? Honestly, you worry too much. Surely, it will calm down soon enough. Give it a few weeks - or maybe even days. Rumours don't last forever.”

“But.. have you seen the look other students gave me? Some look down upon me! And as a fair Ravenclaw, that is completely unacceptable. Never shall I be looked down upon on!” [Name] frowned at her own statement. Oh, who were she kidding? She was completely helpless. Lost. She couldn't do anything to stop the rumours - nothing.

“What other people think you did is completely false, [Name].” Arthur commented, closing his book and setting it beside him. “You should know that. You and I know what really did happen. And people are only blaming you because they're frightened.”

“That.. wasn't helpful at all. It just means that they're scared of me. They find me intimidating, then..”

“And there's something wrong with that?” Arthur smirked smugly towards [Name] and she only rolled her eyes at it. He can be so.. Well, [Name] couldn't really describe him, actually. Though, she was sure it was between 'annoying' and 'modest'. “It's better to be feared than to be loved, [Name]. Soon, you will understand. Once your older, maybe.”

“I strongly disagree with that..” [Name] furrowed her brows. How was being feared better than to be loved? She didn't understand the concept at all. Being feared.. will only leave you to isolation; or at least that's what she thought. And being loved.. you have your friends, family, people who are close and dear to you.

Arthur stood up and brushed the dirt off from his pants. “You're too young to understand, [Name]. Now, come along. Class is almost starting. We wouldn't want to be late now, do we?”

“I don't want to go, Arthur.” Of course, she didn't. She would only hear those rumours yet again, and it will distract her from work. She didn't want to see the glares of other students as well. And what will her other friends think of her? This was all too troublesome..

“That's not really the [Name] I once knew. Where is she? Where's the cheery, optimistic, [Name]? What happened to her creativity and her pride?” The younger female raised a brow at Arthur's words. Or was it supposed to be a pep-talk? Whatever it was, it surely was odd and bizarre. However, it did put a smile on her face.

“Arthur, that was the most terrible encouragement I have ever heard.” She chuckled and shrugged his shoulders loosely. “Though, it did help.”

He smiled slightly at her words and brought a hand towards her. “May I have the honor to escort Lady [Surname] to her next class, then?”

[Name] once again rolled her eyes but smiled towards at him. “You may.”

She was glad to have a friend like Arthur. Because even with the worst situations happening, Arthur seemed to be always there where she needed him the most. And she was happy to truly have a friend like him.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

I love stories like this-
Personally I'd rather have a friend who understands me than a love life like in normal cheesy sudden confession stories about England. I mean, look at him, as a close friend he's just so calm and understanding and stuff.

I've read so many England x Reader fanfics that it's a struggle to find a new one, and trust me, that's exactly where most of them go. If people went on a different, non-cliche path of romance with England, it would be better. But generally a lot of them get England's personality wrong, and follow such a cliche path with not-so-amazing literature that it's painful. Cliche isn't always bad, but people need to write it correctly. And, once more, I prefer the friendship thing. Whether it be because I like your style better than a lot of the stories I read or the personality, I prefer it. 

Also, I really like the whole Harry Potter cross over thing. Usually I'm not so fond of them because they're poorly written, but yours are rather enjoyable :)

But they're relationship was completely platonic! As Arthur had stated: “It's better to be feared than to be loved, [Name]. Soon, you will understand. Once your older, maybe.” which tells us that Arthur was a older and Reader was younger. So, I wouldn't necessarily say that Reader actually "friend-zoned" him, the relationship between Arthur and the Reader was platonic. ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

True, but Arthur's personality makes him seem older than he really is. Plus, it not at all uncommon for one to have a friend a year or two older than them.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ARTHUR STILL GOT FRIEND-ZONED.... The poor guy!

But they felt platonic around each other. Completely platonic; no romance had been involved. So I wouldn't really say they he was friend-zoned. But whatever you say, then.
