She visibly flinched as he accidentally brushed the hair off her forehead, and they both froze.
For 3 seconds.
Anger and shame flushed across her cheeks, as she tried to push him away, but he held onto her hands firmly, refusing to budge, as memories of fifth year came flashing back.
He had heard about the incident between her and Granger, or at least some garbled version that came of out Hogwarts rumour mill. But he’d never actually seen it before, and had just assumed it wasn’t a permanent curse. And now, realization downed on him that she must’ve carefully did her hair this way all these years.
“I – ”
“Go away, Malfoy,” Marietta Edgecombe’s voice hitched slightly, as if she were blinking away tears.
“Granger did this?” He wanted to ask why didn’t she fix it, but he knew that she must’ve tried. “I – Pansy’s … I’ll get Pansy to make her undo this.”
“I don’t need your help,” she bit out.
His mouth twitched slightly, annoyed. (He knew he should probably be more patient, and her reaction was not really surprising, but he was still slightly annoyed.) “At least your scar might be fixable.”
Confusion slowly replaced anger on her face.
He let out a sharp, bitter laugh before unbuttoning his shirt, letting the sectumsempra scars show. Snape had saved his life, but even dittany hadn’t been able to heal all the wounds. Some things left marks. “You’re looking at the proud handiwork of the wonderful Chosen One,” he informed her.
It was her turn to stare.
“And people call them the Golden Trio,” she finally murmured.
“So golden,” Draco grimaced, a bitter smile forming as he echoed the word. His hand slowly cupped her cheek, and she didn’t try to push him away this time.
“I have to work harder than anyone else to make it! I’ll never catch up otherwise…! I want to be like you…! Like you. The strongest hero!” (๑و•̀ω•́)و ✩

omg guys, there’s this series of GF shorts named “Shop at Home with Mr. Mystery” which originally aired in November 2015 and is basically a bunch of fake commercials featuring puppet!Stan trying to ged rid of various Mystery Shack junk, and I really regret not watching it sooner because it’s a *freaking treasure*. can’t remember the last time I got this inspired to draw GF shit :D
(Bill and Stan’s phone talk is from this short and this line actually made me freak out for a second because knowing Alex, it’s either a subtle foreshadowing to the finale, or a hint that Bill is still in Stan’s mind :)))
“Shh, it’s alright,” the villain said. “You’re doing beautifully and I’m so proud of you. But that’s enough now. It was cruel of them to make you fight me - you could never have won. It’s not your fault.”
An Auror who saved the world and one of the most brilliant Chaser are a married couple. Of course they would tease each other to the press at some point of their life. This was slightly inspired by the tv show Modern Family.
Some Oddly Specific Character Quirks (taken from my real-life friends)
Giving a character strange, highly specific quirks is one of the best ways to humanize them and make them feel more real. So I figured I’d share some real, actual Character Quirks™ from real life people that could serve as inspiration or as writing prompts for people’s characters. Let me know if you use one!
Always has a kazoo on them, and if ever a situation calls for it, will simply produce a kazoo. Often unclear where they were keeping it.
Can mimic any accent perfectly after hearing a small sample of it once. The one exception? The accent of the region they’re from.
Has strange and very long chunks of text memorized perfectly, from 40 digits of pi to several Shakespeare monologues to poems to favorite passages from books. Often forgets their own name or the words for everyday objects.
Has never once lost a game of Jenga, ever.
When stressed, participates in conversations largely through strange and loud vocalizations instead of words. Somehow, everyone still knows what they mean.
Their idea of treating themselves is buying lapel flowers, silk pocket squares, and ties.
Once biked 30 miles to the Mississippi River just so they could sit on the bank and play the harmonica. Could only play for about 3 minutes before having to immediately turn around and bike the 30 mile return trip to get home before dark.
When they get nervous they just drop and start doing push ups. Doesn’t matter where they are.
Ordered 13 boxes of garlic triscuits off of Amazon.
Whenever they hear the song “Dancing Queen” they start stripping. It started as a joke but it has become involuntary and has lead to some uncomfortable situations.
Every time they tell a bad joke, they stand up and take a lap around the room yelling “AND THE CROWD GOES WILD”
Primary mode of transportation is a razor scooter that is much, much too small for them.
Has an “off button” on their back. A spot where, if pressed, all of their muscles give out and they collapse to the ground. Their identical twin has it, too.
If no emoji exists to capture their feelings about something, they will draw a new emoji on the nearest scrap of paper and text a picture of that.
Has developed an intricate burp rating scale with specific and standardized rules and uses it to rate every burp they hear on a scale of 1-10.
