It was a few seconds before Cinder found her voice and she had to grip the door frame to keep standing. “Thorne?” His head jerked around. “Cinder?” “Wh—what are you—how? Where have you been? What’s going on? Why are you wearing that stupid bandanna?” He laughed. Gripping a wooden cane, he stumbled toward her, waving one hand until it landed on her shoulder. Then he was hugging her, suffocating her against his chest. “I missed you too.” “You jerk,” she hissed, even as she returned the hug. “We thought you were dead!” “Oh, please. It’d take a lot more than a satellite plummeting to Earth to kill me.”
The moment Lily ducked out of the attic, James turned to him with a gaze so earnest that Severus gripped the edge of his chair and glared back. “I was a dick to you, in Hogwarts,” James said.
“Um,” said Severus and then frowned at himself. He detested filler words. But maybe this was a special occasion.
“I’m sorry,” said James. “You’ve got perfect right to hate me, but I’d like it if we could be friends.”
Severus gripped his chair harder. He considered this. James–was the sky purple? were all the pig-flying spells all over England failing for one shining moment? was his mother’s basement freezing over?–waited for him to find his words. “It would make certain things simpler,” Severus managed.

I’m saying “a” traitor since I’m on board with the theories that there is at least one traitor in class A, but this is a completely different topic. So, about Monoma.. let’s briefly talk about his personality at first:
BYSOTI(D) prompt: Vitya is waxing poetic about the gloriousness of Yuuri's ass (to Chris). If this is in person, Yuuri walks in; if not, Victor accidentally sends his soliloquy to him instead of Chris. Ideally before they get together xD
Viktor And then he was stretching, and the way that his pants drew taut across his ass… I just can’t handle it sometimes. Why does he have to be so hot? And cute. And hot. And cute. I can’t even pick one.
Yuuri blinked at the message. This… this wasn’t the sort of thing that Viktor would send to him. It wasn’t the sort of thing that Yuuri wanted Viktor to send. He really really really didn’t want to hear about Viktor’s conquests or who he thought was hot.
It was uncomfortable.
It made him want what he couldn’t have.
He much preferred Viktor up on his pedestal as the best skater. The one to beat. The one to strive to be just as good as.
(And a friend, but right now…)
Yuuri Who? Also, you probably didn't mean to send this to me. It was for Chris, right?
The part that sucked the most was knowing that Viktor would just laugh off sending the message to the wrong person before asking if Yuuri wanted all the details even knowing that Yuuri would threaten to not talk to him if he did that.
It was always all fun and games with Viktor.
Viktor FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK
Chris One second you’re regaling me with the discussion of how great Yuuri’s ass looked in the practice video the JSF posted on their website and the next you’re cursing. Came too soon?
Viktor I accidentally sent the message to Yuuri.
Chris Well, that’s one way to tell the boy you’d like to do him every which way and then take him to the altar.
Viktor Chris! I’m serious! What the fuck am I supposed to do?! Wait… he… he doesn’t realise I’m talking about him. I didn’t actually mention his name. What do I do? He asked who I was talking about!
Chris Hmmm. Just listen to me for a minute here. I have a crazy idea. You like crazy ideas.
Viktor I’ll take any idea!
Chris TELL HIM THAT IT WAS ABOUT HIM. Then arrange to meet up somewhere. Give in to your hormones for a sex filled weekend. Propose or something a few weeks later and then, here’s the really crazy part, BE HAPPY (And maybe don’t tell me about all the sex you’re having because then I might have to kill you.)
Viktor That is the worst plan in the history of plans! I’ll… I’ll just make something up. Maybe say I was talking about the ice dancer you have the hots for.
Viktor YES I AM!
Viktor HAHAHA! You’re right! I was talking with Chris about this Swiss ice dancer! Maybe you’ve seen him skate?
Yuuri Ah. Yes. Chris has pointed him out before. He’s all right, I suppose. Not really my type. Um… I need to go. Enjoy talking with Chris about your hot ice dancer!
Yuuri pressed the power button on his phone until the phone shut all the way off. He didn’t want to see anything more about hot ice dancer whoever for the rest of the night. He needed to study. And then he’d go out and… do something. Something so he wouldn’t have to think.
