Draco loves to braid hair headcanons

So I have this headcanon that Draco Malfoy loves to braid hair. And he’s great at it

  • He can do it all, French, dutch, fishtail, milkmaid, four strand braids, you name it, he can do it
  • He can do it all, French, dutch, fishtail, milkmaid, four strand braids, you name it, he can do it
  • He can do other hair things but he loves to braidHe grew up braiding Narcissa’s hair. Narcissa prefers her hair down but she loves having Draco braiding it and she’ll leave it up when he does it because, and that makes him so happy (and that makes her happy)
  • He had to learn from different types of braid from books. no youtube here folks
  • He wishes he’d had a little sister sometimes he would have always been doing her hair
  • He used to do Pansy’s hair when she visited the manor, and when they went to Hogwarts he did it all the time
  • And it just expanded from there, he did Pansy’s, then Millicent’s, Daphne’s and Astoria’s
  • He ends up braiding a lot of hair cuz he just can’t say no
  • Like he’ll huff and sigh and then you know he’ll sit down cross legged on the sofa and motion in front of him and they’ll just sit down in front and do it(it’s the only time he’ sit that way he usually sits very fancy like with just his ankles crossed)
  • He’s in high demand at dances
  • Before quidditch try outs and games he braids all the girls and long haired peeps hair if they ask
  • French speaking Draco braiding the Beauxbatons girls hair
  • People ask who braids his hair but they know better than to say Draco
  • It’s like the best kept secret in Slytherin
  • But in 8th year everyone finds out cuz of the 8th year common room
  • Then everyone gets their hair braided
  • Everyone’s sitting down and drinking and Draco is braiding someones hair
  • He still braids the younger Slytherin students hair
  • Other kids sneak into the 8th year common room to get their hair braided
  • Especially Luna. Although she’s there all the time anyway
  • In a ‘Sirius lives’ verse he braids Sirius’s hair. Sirius leaves it in for a month
  • He always wanted to be friends with Tonks so he could braid her hair. Braiding a metamorphmagus’s hair?? That’ be so cool
  • In a verse where she lives he finally gets to
  • They love it
  • Somewhere in this verse they watch tangled and see the hair braiding part
  • And they instantly look at each other and are like ‘yyesssss’
  • Everyone rolls their eyes
  • They do it. It’s awesome
  • Grown up Draco and Harry and Draco braiding Harry’s long hair for his work
  • Teddy grows his hair long and Draco braids that too. Also great
  • And also yes Draco can braid his own hair but it’s not the same. Braiding someone else’s hair is beautiful and relaxing and it’s trust because that person trusts you to do it
  • In 8th year Draco does a lot to try to apologise to everyone and make it up to them. Especially Hermione. And the day that Hermione comes to Draco and asks him to braid her hair he knows he’s finally forgiven

Woah. This got way out of hand. At some stage I’m totally making a fic about this, but till then, thank you for reading this.

Super special thanks to @ferret-face for being my sounding board and contributing to this wonderful headcanon

Day 7

Imagine Being The Volturi’s Secretary

For My Followers

Part 1

Signing up for a shady secretary job is one thing but said shady job actually being offered by vampires is another thing.

You’re not a skeptic and you’ve never exactly valued your own life very much so you took the job.

You quickly find out that the Volturi value your life about as much you do.

~~~

“Your job here is to organize the schedule, pass messages onto the masters, welcome us as we come in, say farewell as we leave, do anything we ask, and collect the mail. You are not to open any mail you must pass it onto the masters. You are not to interrupt when the doors are closed, and you are not to divulge the secret. You can continue living your life in town but you’ll find you won’t have time to return to your social life. You will call members of the guard sir or ma'am and the three kings master,” the tall beefy guard explains as he leads me through the old castle. His name is Demetri and he seems annoyed at being given the task to play tour guide.

“Yes sir,” you reply. He grunts and leads you to a nice mahogany desk.

“This is your desk,” he says and gestures for you to sit. You nod and sit down at the desk. There’s a set of pens and pencils on the desk in a straight line and a mac computer. You fold your hands and look up politely at your red eyed boss. “You are to be here at seven sharp every morning and you leave at three unless instructed otherwise. You may have days off if you request them a week in advance. Any questions?”

“None sir,” you answer politely and smile. Demetri rolls his eyes and stalks away. Once the blonde vampire no longer watches you scribble down all the rules he said and place them in the top desk drawer.

You may not value your life but you value work ethic.

So begins your first day as the Volturi secretary.

~~~

You quickly learn names and abilities of all the guard except who don’t seem that bad at all. Of course they’re all horribly frightening and don’t care for you at all but they aren’t rude.

You’re good at your job and you assure to follow all the rules laid out. Even though your job is easy you never slack off in your free time. To keep busy you start hand making a calendar for the Volturi. Each month has a guard member or two sketched out on it while the three kings stand as the cover.

Your main task is organizing fake tours for Heidi to lead so the Volturi can eat without suspicion being raised. Though the screams haunt your dreams you manage to stop flinching every time a tour comes through.

Other jobs include scheduling trials for vampires who’ve broken laws, planning parties, handing on letters, sending gifts to friends of the Volturi, and anything else that is asked of you. Once you had to learn how to fishtail braid so you could braid Jane’s hair.

Overall you’re not happy, you ever are, but you don’t hate your job. The pay is nice and it keeps you busy.

~~~

“(Y/N)!” Jane snaps and you instantly bounce to attention. The blonde vampire is storming up to your desk with a murderous look on her face.

“Yes ma'am?”

“A trial is scheduled for the day of my and Alec’s birthday!” she hisses. “We were supposed to have a ball.” Jane is furious and looks ready to kill.

“I’m sorr-”

“I know it wasn’t you! You keep track of the birthdays ritualistically.” It’s true you have all the birthdays written down and you always plan something if the particular vampire cares about their birthday. “I want to know who told you to put a trial over it!”

Jane is glaring viciously and her hands are clenched.

“Mr Demetri requested it,” you answer calmly.

“I’m going to rip his head off,” she growls. “Thanks.” You’re stunned, none f then has ever shifted blame from you to another member of the guard, and no one has ever said thanks.

“Your welcome but ma'am, is the fault not mine?” you ask curiously.

“It’s not because I know you were ordered explicitly to follow all orders. I also know Demetri is mad because I stole his favorite cloak,” Jane replies curtly and then storms off.

You wonder silently if they’ve started to like you.

~~~

“Dear (Y/N) I wonder if you could help me choose a table cloth for Jane and Alec’s party?” Aro inquires with a sickly sweetness. He called you into the throne room for this express reason apparently.

“Yes I can master,” you say and walk forward. Your heels click on the granite floor loudly, too loudly.

“Never wear heels again (Y/N) they are intolerable,” Caius demands.

“Ah but sweet (Y/N) looks so delicious in heels,” Aro muses. “Felix, and Heidi certainly think so.” The referred vamps immediately hiss and scowl. You feel your face heat up in betrayal to your mind.

“How can they stand the sound?” Caius mutters but everyone disregards him.

“Oh hush brother. Now (Y/N) tell me which table cloth is best?”

You choose the red one which pleases Jane and Alec.

On your way out you purposefully take light steps to cushion the sound.

“Aro this girl has been here for months when will we kill her?”

“Caius we also discussed turning her.”

“We always say we’ll turn them but we never do.”

“This one is different.”

~~~

“(Y/N) will you come to our party?” Alec asks suddenly appearing behind you. You squeak in surprise and whip around to find Jane and him looking at you expectantly.

“If you request I come then I shall sir. Unless I’m indisposed,” you reply nicely.

“What do you mean? What could possibly make you unavailable. You have nothing to do outside this job,” Jane remarks bluntly.

“Ma'am the only way I would miss your party is if I was dead. In my line of work I understand that my death could occur at any moment.”

Jane and Alec both stare in shock and then a certain emotion you couldn’t figure out.

Before you know it Jane grabs your arm in a bruising grip and roughly pulls you to the throne room.

So it’s finally happening, your death.

i want the paladins to get closer and closer, both emotionally and physically, as the show goes on. i could get into the ‘emotionally’ part but i’ll spare you of that. i DO wanna talk about the paladins being physically close though

i mean, think about it. there’s only 7 people on the castle, they’re all bound to get touch-starved eventually. so after a while, they just get really touchy-feely
