Imagine lying in bed with Puck, propped up on pillows, watching him trace each of your fingers with a content look on his face. 

“Why do you do that?” you ask after he turns your palm over and begins tracing the lines on your skin. 

“I’m memorizing you,” he replies, giving you a warm smile, his emerald eyes glittering. 

“You haven’t already?” you tease, grinning up at him. 

“I like a refresher every now and then,” he says, bending to kiss your forehead. “I’m learning there’s always something new and incredible about you I haven’t found out yet.”

Imagine Puck meeting Fred and George Weasley. They size each other up, and seem about ready to get into some kind of altercation when all three smirk at each other, and Fred and George drop deep bows in the Jester’s direction.

“Your Deviousness,” Fred says in a reverent tone.

“It’s an honor and a privilege,” George adds in an equally solemn voice.

Puck’s grin is so wide it looks as though his face might just split in half at any second.


OT4 From The Iron Fey series

We sat there, the four of us, talking quietly or just basking in the silence, watching the night sky. I didn’t see any falling stars, but if I had, I would’ve wished my dad be kept safe, that Ash and Puck would survive the coming war, and that somehow, we all would come out of this okay. If wishes were horses. I knew better. Fairy godmothers didn’t exist, and even if they did, they wouldn’t wave a magic wand and make everything better. (Not without a contract, anyway.) Besides, I had something better than a fairy godmother; I had my faery knight, my faery trickster, and my faery cat, and that was enough.

Note: All the descriptions are taken from here

Imagine Puck spending the day raiding your pantry for food while you’re out. There isn’t much, since you’re barely managing to pay rent, and the total contents of your food closet include a half full bag of stale Cheetos, an open box of Rice Krispies, and a can of green beans that expired two years ago. 

Totally exasperated with your apparent lack of edible goods, Puck goes out, and returns several hours later with enough food to fill your refrigerator, pantry, and a couple cabinets. 

When you return home, it’s to find a fully stocked fridge of fresh fruit and veggies, meats, and cheeses. Puck is longing on the couch, gnawing on a Granny Smith apple. 

“You gotta eat if you wanna live, girlie,” he tells you with a grin as you raise an eyebrow at him. “And I prefer you alive, so eat up.”
