“today we acknowledge a really terrible loss. cedric diggory was as you all know, exceptionally hard working, infinitely fair-minded and most importantly a fierce, fierce friend. now i think therefore you have the right to know exactly how he died. you see, cedric diggory was murdered by lord voldemort. the ministry of magic does not wish me to tell you this, but not to do so i think would be an insult to his memory.”
Merman prince Alfred from a USUK au I thought of with @mi-chan4649. Arthur is a wandering kleptomaniac merman commoner who has become very good at stealing expensive valuables from wealthier merfolk. He likes to wear his stolen items and often lies about his social status wherever he goes. Alfred is a prince from another kingdom who is betrothed to the prince of Arthur’s birth kingdom, and he mistakes Arthur for the prince that he is to marry. Arthur rolls with it for as long as he can, going into it for the money, but they both find themselves falling in love with each other along the way. Arthur’s gotten himself into quite the mess.
