Oh Lordy– thanks a lot @kaschy
#6 from the Artist Asks: dominant and not dominant hand

fun fact:
Last year I found out my dominant hand was originally my left, and it was until I was about 4. My parents being concerned immigrants who didn’t want me to have any weird disadvantages, see school mandated ESL that they gave up and put me into to “get rid of that accent”. So they decided that being a lefty would just check off another minority box that might make my life harder.
So they forced me to switch which hand I used- and I only found that out at the age of 25.

Heyy! Its summer holidays and I'm bored as fuck, so do you guys know any fics that would blow my mind? Like a long fic with an amazing well-made interesting plot? Thats not really specific im sorry, im willing to read anything as long as it has an impressive, mind blowing, not boring at all plot Thank you for this amazing blog 💖

I’ll keep this as short as I can since it’s such a broad request and I have no idea what you guys have already read lol you can also look through our above 50k tag for long fics, and if we rec’ced them we probably gave some kind of opinion on them so you’ll know what we thought of them

Only When the Sun Sets by sacramento - Jeon Jeongguk was never meant to handle so much responsibility, but when he sees a vision foretelling the King’s death, he cannot just sit back and let it happen. The ‘right’ thing to do would be to stop it, but as Jeongguk soon discovers, doing the ‘right’ thing is never so simple, or easy. Stuck in between underhanded plots for the Iron Throne, Jeongguk must figure out who he is and what he stands for. He must choose a side, and he must choose well, for in the Game of Thrones, you win… or you die. There is no middle ground.

Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast by Kavbj - Taehyung has magic in his veins and Jungkook’s determined not to let it kill him. 

Lucky strike by expplipo - “You’re bad luck, I’m good luck. Two sides of a coin. Head and tails. We match.”

Terrible Things Happen (Sometimes, They Save You) by mindheist - Min Yoongi wakes up from a nightmare on a sunless afternoon to a reality more twisted than his dizziest daydreams.

refrigerator humming, chewing gum and instant karma by locks - Taehyung sets the flowers down on the dining table, plucking the card off the little holder. “Dearest Taehyung, just wanted you to know that I’m thinking about you. I hope you’re thinking about me too. Love–” he pauses and squints before cocking an eyebrow and pursing his lips. “Hyung, why is the boss of your little boy band gang professing his love for me?” Yoongi drops the noodles on the floor with a loud curse as he burns his hand. Or, Taehyung’s been trying his hardest to avoid Yoongi’s criminal life for a long ass time, but a cute kid and his infuriating father keep pulling him deeper into the mix.

trust your heart if the seas catch fire by maxx - “Sometimes I wonder whether you’d be better off without me. Whether you really need me at all.” Taehyung has always doubted his necessity to the group, as well as to Jungkook. Usually a knock on the head would suffice to bring him back to his senses. But this time, it seems someone was listening to his request. Now, everything has changed. He’s in a world where Jungkook and the rest of the group are still famous, but he isn’t.

Veni, Vidi, Amavi by yourluckytae - (I came, I saw, I loved) Ever since that day, Taehyung has been looking for something, chasing a dream he seems to be missing. Something important that makes his heart whole. It’s a creeping sense of someone he can’t quite grasp, who’s always on the tip of his tongue, nails on a chalkboard screeching loudly in his ear to remember. But every time he tries, it hurts. But he chases the dreams, the feelings, whatever it is that he’s missing because he thinks it would hurt more to never find whatever’s gone. Jeongguk stares at his palms absent-mindedly, body rocking with the movement of the train. His fingers trace over non existent words on his right palm. Something he hadn’t thought about in years. He has a feeling; something deep and nostalgic bubbling inside him tasting like chocolate muffins and caramel lattes and smelling of vanilla and strawberries. It stirs within him as his fingers trace each stroke over his palm. It stirs something melancholy, something sad. A feeling. (Kimi no Na Wa (Your Name) Au)

起死回生; To Live Again by mindheist - Fiction gives us a second chance that life denies us.

Abaddon’s Waltz by eclairdeluxe - Hell hath no fury like a lover scorned.

(thought you knew) you were in this song by expplipo - Taehyung nearly chokes, but only nearly. Instead he raises an eyebrow and puts on the most suave smile he can manage. Hopes he looks far more collected than his for-some-reason racing heartbeat would let on, more suit-and-wine than elementary-schooler-with-a-new-crush. “You like me?” Jeongguk blushes, and looks at his feet. He’s smiling. “Of course.” “Really?” Taehyung says. “Like? Or like like?” (So much for suit-and-wine.)

I’ve read all the ones I just listed and I know for sure those are good, but these next ones I haven’t read. most are on my list to read and seem pretty good from skimming the writing a bit and the plots all seem interesting, or they’re ones I know other people love, but I can’t be 100% sure since I haven’t read them

Swamp Magic by GinForInk - Two witches lure Jungkook into their cabin in the woods.

(I know admin guk read this and really loved it, and I read one other fic from this author and it was amazing)

Lupus Tales by kpopismydrug - This is one summer break that Taehyung will never forget. From dealing with a moody mare that likes to think she’s a stroppy teenager rather than a horse, to dealing with childhood memories that threaten to choke him, Taehyung will soon find out that when you take a trip down memory lane, some things are more than just memories.

(super long series that I know admin s loves)

An Interstellar Anomaly by PaprikaFetus - They are two heirs that belong to opposite sides of the universe.

Hustlers by tbz - Jungkook hadn’t meant to lose nine million. He certainly hadn’t meant to lose his kidney. And he hadn’t meant to meet Kim Taehyung.

summer; blue by Batman - More than you can manage, more than you can hide: a study in light.

Mutual Fiend by kkumkkatcher - “I didn’t recognize you with your clothes on.” An AU where Jungkook needs to kill Taehyung, but Taehyung also needs to kill Jungkook, and things get (more than) a bit complicated.

All the Years of Us by TrappingLightningBugs - From the moment a new family hobbled into town, having come a long way for sanctuary, Taehyung had eyes only for Jeon Jungkook.

Shifting On My Feet by MarionetteFtHJM - With the ever-growing crime rate in the city there’s no telling what the leading figures will do to remain leading. The safety of the people is at risk and the possible collateral damage looms over the authorities. There is only one safe option, sacrifice a few to save the lives of many. Tear them from the inside, cool the situation down- should be easy enough, right? Jeongguk was just trying to live out his days peacefully, but running from one’s past never really worked out for anybody- so why would he be an exception? He’s not. Demons tend to find who they’re looking for in the end.

Taste of Ink by sugamins - Jungkook is a drug runner for the largest gang in the whole of Busan: the Sam Yong Pa. One day he bumps into a runner for a rival gang in the next district that has trespassed into their territory: a Geum Sung Pa boy called Jimin. Jimin has a friend, a goon for the rival gang. Taehyung beats people up for a living, and boy, does he look good when he’s doing it.But their blossoming friendships reignite old gang flames and causes the most brutal gang war the country has ever seen.Dragons destroy and stars explode.

i know you wanna go to heaven (but you’re human tonight) by moonlightae - Taehyung just thought it would be a one night stand, but he gets more than he bargained for

Assassin’s Order by TaeSyubDKook - CEO Taehyung gets tangled up in some illegal business without even knowing and when Assasin Jeongguk gets assigned to extract information from him after being caught, he realizes in what mess he’s gotten himself into and agrees to cooperate with the assassins, after learning their true reasons, to bring down his uncle’s company. What Jeongguk and Taehyung didn’t expect was falling for each other in the progress.

Kiss With a Fist by byeolguk - “Need a little help, love?” Jungkook asks, teasing him. “Nah I had it all under control, sweetheart,” Taehyung answers with a smile, blood oozing from his split lip. Goddamn even smiling hurt now. Fuckity fuck fuck. Jungkook only rolls his eyes, his cocky smirk never slipping and Taehyung almost forgets how much pain he’s in. prompt-Can you please write the “ kick his ass for me” prompt with taekook!

I know you've already touched on this but I'm still intrigued, especially since I've seen people say that they might not air this particular performance. Could you please describe with a lot of detail, without giving away too many spoilers, how great Harry singing 'Girl Crush' was 😍? I was freaking out when I came across your blog. What made this particular performance standout (vocally) from all of his other ballads? I'm bored I need something to daydream about 😂. Thank you for your stories!

Well first off, they very well might air it because Nick linked it when they were doing the TV links (that and about 4 or 5 other songs) so don’t lose hope on that score! I’m certainly not lol. And I had to go back and recall all my saved memories for this anon ;) So here goes…

When the band started playing and he first started singing it, it took me the first verse to realise what it was, it was so unexpected. Then once I realised, I wasted the next 30 seconds squeeing (because I’m country!harry trash) and then when I finally calmed down and let myself really listen to it, it was just sooo sweet. He was very relaxed, hitting every note with that beautiful vibrato he has when he sings in his natural tone, and he gave it everything without effort.

One of the first things that made me fall in love with Harry was the way he gives 100% to every song he sings, every time he sings it, even though he’s sung those songs a million times before. He absolutely felt it, and you could just tell he was in his element. He wasn’t pulling faces or straining, he was just singing with his natural voice (how you might imagine he sings in the shower when no one is listening). There was no effort, no sense of him trying too hard, it was just very pure and incredibly soulful. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t make me choke up a little. Every note was in tune, and he felt every word he was singing.

I know a lot of people don’t agree with me, but I just think his tone is so suited to that kind of bluesy/country sound because he doesn’t have to try, it just comes naturally to him. It was stunning, honestly. It would be a travesty if the fandom doesn’t get to hear him sing it either on the TV or on tour. I hope that answers your question! :)

anonymous asked:

Hi Capitu! Thank you SO much for keeping this blog and your LJ, it has saved me so much time and gotten me through so many boring lectures! If it's possible, could I have some creature fic recs with top Harry? I prefer long fics, but I'm starved for pretty much anything! I'd love to hear your favourites. Any creatures are okay. Thanks!

Hi Anon! I’m glad I saved your from boring lectures! LOL I kinda feel I shouldn’t be glad, but hey! I only share stories I love. :D

You didn’t say if the creature had to be Harry, so I’m some of these have creature!Draco. I marked them for you all the same because apparently I have too much time in my hands? ^^ But you might have seen, earlier I made a post with all Veela!Harry, if you’re interested. Also, I know you said top!Harry, but some of these don’t have penetration (those are at the bottom. Heh) and I figured that’s cool, too.

Also, you said you’d love to hear about my favourites, so these recs come with Notes. When I rec I usually make a note about what the story is about and talking a bit about what I liked about it. Sometimes I don’t make a note in these lists, though, because I can get self-conscious and think people don’t need to hear me going on and on, and also because some lists get long. But I guess you enjoy the notes? :)

Anyway, sorry for the long intro! Onto the fics:

Harry Potter and the Inconvenient Condition by mirabella (NC-17, 20,5K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Harry comes back from vacation with an inconvenient case of vampirism and must learn to cope with blood, Malfoy, and recalcitrant secretaries. And if that doesn’t tell you everything about the plot you need to know, you haven’t read enough badfic.
My notes: I love that summary, and I love this fic. Harry, yeah, comes back from his vacations turned into a vampire and Draco, bloody tease that he is (I always make this pun when reccing this fic, sorry!), makes it all the harder. Er, literally, even. :D

Intended by LadyVader (NC-17, 16,8K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Due to a little ill-meant meddling, Harry Potter is partway transformed into a Vampire and only Draco’s blood can sate his thirst.
My notes: This is Hogwarts Era. There’s a plot against Harry, and how he’s turned into a vampire who only wants Draco.  So much UST!

Blue Sunny Day by @firethesound (NC-17, 26,1K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Years ago, Harry Potter disappeared from the Wizarding World. When Draco spots him at a club in Muggle London, well, he just can’t resist the opportunity that presents itself.
My notes: One of my favourite fics by Fire, and like, just imagine how good it is! :D It’s hot, emotional, sweet. It’s everything that is good in a fic. <3

High Priced by dysonrules (NC-17, 33K, veela!Harry)
Summary: Harry Potter discovers he has Veela blood, which requires him to have contact with his “mate” in the form of some sort of physical touching or else he will wither and die. Of course, his mate turns out to be someone extraordinarily unsuitable–Draco Malfoy, who is only too gleeful to finally have something that Harry Potter needs.
My notes: Oh, oh! The sheer pining in this fic, Harry’s desperation at wanting someone who apparently doesn’t want him back. Perfect.

The Weight of Eternity by venis_envy (NC-17, 20,8K, veela!Draco)
Summary: Desperate for survival, Draco takes what he needs from others while avoiding the one he’s meant to be with. His newfound compassion will not allow him to trap the one he loves, even if it means his own life is the price paid for Harry’s freedom of choice.
My notes: asldkfjasldkjfsds!!!! Well. Fics like this one is why we love Veela fics. Pining, delicious pining and delicious sex. But it’s not just that, the writing is beautiful. This fic has a remix (from Harry’s POV):

Time to Eternity by carlrissian18 (NC-17, 16,6K, veela!Draco)
Summary: Malfoy has wings.
My notes: I suggest you read first The Weight of Eternity. These two complement each other perfectly.

Angels and Devils by beren (NC-17, 52K, Veela!Draco, Harry!Seraphim)
Summary: Harry defeated Voldemort: his act of heroism is famous throughout the wizarding world. He’s trying to finish his final year at Hogwarts in peace, but something peculiar is happening to him, something he never would have expected. It’s all rather embarrassing and making his life very complicated.
My notes: Harry is a mythical creature, Draco is a Veela, and, well, Harry courts him. It’s super interesting, this fic.

Animal Attraction by Tari-Sue (NC-17, 19,3K, Veela!Draco)
Summary: A hex gone wrong turns Draco from one of the world’s most despised wizards into the Ministry’s most desirable Veela. Now all he has to do is learn to control Veela Allure gone haywire, try to find a cure and avoid Harry Potter.
My notes: Well, yes, a hex gone wrong and now Draco is a Veela, one who thinks Harry being friendly to him is only because of the allure. ;) Yeah, right. ^^

There’s Something About Malfoy by cassie_black12 (NC-17, 27K, veela!Draco)
Summary: Strange things keep happening to Draco Malfoy, and Harry Potter is determined to get to the bottom of it. He may end up with more than he bargained for.
My notes: This story is AU after OotP, it’s Hogwarts Era, and it’s really entertaining. Check the warnings, just in case! :)

The Living Half by maab_connor (NC-17, 26,5K, Veela!Draco)
Summary: Six years ago, Draco Malfoy nearly died. To save his own life he fled to America. And now, Agent Malfoy of the DHS has Harry Potter sprung on him for a partner.
My notes:  Very cool story, Draco is a Veela, living without his mate thanks to a potion he takes. He lives in America, but his life takes a complicated turn when Harry arrives to train the rookies.

The Arc of the Pendulum by brummell (NC-17, 30,1K, werewolf!Harry)
Summary: After his father casts a mysterious curse on Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy is forced to try to make things right.
My note: Ohh! OH! This fic is amazing! Harry’s animalistic side, all Draco does to save him. It’s simply amazing. You’ve probably seen this story recced before, yes, it’s fantastic.

Rejoicing in Their Strength by Lomonaaeren (R, 34,1K, werewolf!Harry)
Summary: Lucius went mad after the war, and he has killed Narcissa and confined Draco to Malfoy Manor while he does magical experiments on him. Draco escapes at times by astral travel. During one of his journeys, he is astonished to find Harry Potter, who vanished after the war, living in the Forest of Dean.
My notes: Mind the warnings in this fic so it doesn’t catch you by surprise, but if you’re prepared, this fic is pretty awesome. Draco’s been tortured by an insane Lucius, and Harry’s found a way to communicate with him in an astral travel. Then Harry and his pack rescue him. This fic has a sequel that you can find at Eyes That Can See in the Dark (15,9K) and this one is about Draco being Harry’s Omega living with the pack.

The Corruption Sequence (series) by beren (NC-17, 94,1K, creature!Harry)
Summary: Voldemort has captured Harry and for his own twisted reasons has chosen not to kill him outright. Revenge in the Dark Lord’s mind requires a fate worse than death and Harry is about to find out what that is.
My notes: Voldemort thinking he’s punishing Harry turns him into a, wow, it’s hard to explain, okay, like, he merges Harry’s core with the darkest of Creatures. And now Harry has all these parts of creatures inside him. And Draco saves him and they are bonded. I know I’m doing a bad job explaining this fic, but it’s pretty amazing, trust me.

Yours is the Earth (Hold on, Hold On) by @chickenlivesinpumpkin (NC-17, 127,1K, creature!Draco) [There’s some switching in this fic, but mainly bottom!Draco)
Summary: When they first meet after the end of the war, Draco doesn’t want anything to do with Harry. But as time goes by, Draco’s growing love may be the only thing that can save them both, because after a serious accident in the Forbidden Forest, Draco’s personality begins to undergo subtle changes. At first, Harry credits this to a new enthusiasm for life. But as the days pass and Draco’s behavior becomes more and more mysterious, Harry begins to suspect that something bigger–and darker–is at work.
My notes: This fic, OMG. Okay, this is one of my favourite fics EVER. It’s mind blowing good. Yeah. I’m going to link  you to my original rec because I could go on and on and on about this fic. It gets better the more you read it. <3

And these are the ones I mention where no one bottoms:

Night Shift by ms_mindfunk (R, 14,3K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Draco is stuck in career purgatory on the night shift in the Auror Department. The powers that be won’t let him near any important cases, but he knows he can prove himself and get promoted if he can just crack a big case. When Harry Potter shows up after getting himself banished to the night shift as well, how will he affect Draco’s plans?

Eternity With You by winnet (R, 18,4K, vampire!Draco)
Summary: One moment with Harry was worth more than an eternity alone.
My note: A fluffy vampire!Fic. :D Super sweet, featuring friends first, oblivious boys and rescue missions.

The Uninvited Guest by winnet (NC-17, 20K, creature!Harry)
Summary: Harry is cursed with an undeniable need by a spell gone sour by age and disuse, and only Draco can calm his uninvited guest.
My note: Hottest rimming scene ever. But the story is more than that, it’s just that when I remember this fic, well, that scene makes an impression on you. Harry puts on a cursed collar and he’s turning into a were-creature, one that absolutely wants Draco with all his might. Amazing.

If the Sun Goes Black by pasdexcuses (PG-13, 23K, creature!Draco)
Summary: With the perverse clarity of nostalgia, Harry remembers everything that was. The trouble is, he can’t recall anything that is.
My note: This is one cool story. :D It starts as a memory loss fic, Harry waking up to learn he and Draco are a couple and living together, but then we learn there’s something strange going on with Draco, and it turns into a case!Fic of sorts. Pretty intriguing! This fic has a remix:

There Is Always the Moon by @firethesound (PG-13, 159,3K, creature!Draco)
Summary: Draco’s life after the war is everything he wanted it to be: it’s simple, and quiet, and predictable, and safe. But when a mysterious curse shatters the peace he’d worked so hard to build, there’s only one person he can trust to help him. After all, Harry Potter has saved his life before. Now Draco has to believe that Potter will be able to do it one more time.
My note: And in this fic we see the backstory, everything Draco went through, his transformation, asking Harry for help, how they decided to live together, and it’s gorgeous, completely gorgeous. I suggest you read these two together. First If the Sun Goes Black and then this one, oh, so good!

Lord, this got long. So very sorry! <33

anonymous asked:

Can you please explain why you have something against how Bella was portrayed in the Twilight movie franchise? Hope it doesn't sound rude lol i'm just curious

They really cut all of Bella’s humor and personality out of the movies! Her snarky comments, her anger, her stubbornness, her silliness….basically everything! They made her completely flat and boring. In so many moments where she should’ve been smiling or angry, she was just blank faced and shook her head. Bella was not a flat character, and the way the screenplay was written made her into one. I’m very thankful for the movies, but I’m very upset how much I don’t know….feeling…is that the word….was lost in the movies. The movies didn’t have much heart, and that’s one of the main reasons the movies are badly thought of because they’re portrayed so differently. Thanks for the ask


I made these Dibbles throws Shade polaroids for you Taylor, so you have something to send people when you need a quick sass reply. 

They’re polaroids, so they’re classy, while also containing all the sass. 

Pragmatic solution, no?

Love and Poetry // Ron & Hermione

Sometimes, when they were out for dinner with a collection of Very Important Ministry Officials dressed in robes worth more galleons than his childhood home, and her eyes were shining as she laughed politely and sipped her drink while she pushed a soft curl behind her ear with a sort of ethereal grace that belonged in a montage of beautiful people you’d see in a posh muggle film, he would wonder why fate had decided he, of all people, deserved to have this woman cross his path when they were eleven.

Then again, he felt very much the same when she stumbled out of the bathroom at just gone six the next morning, pinching her eyes shut as she scowled and tugged at her hair, as if that could stop it from frizzing out of her head at strange angles.

When you live with a person - not just sharing a flat, but when you live your whole life with them - they work themselves seamlessly into your experience of the world. They become a part of you that you never quite get used to, but that is all a part of the comfort and intimacy of being an “us.”

Which is why, Ron supposed, Valentine’s Day didn’t make much sense to them. Sure, when they were dating, it had been nice to have a day set aside where everyone in the world would take “we are in love” as an excuse to skive off for an extended lunch and an early dinner. But now that they were married and spending all their spare time in a place they both called home, it seemed a bygone conclusion.

That’s what Hermione had said, anyway. “A marriage is not about a wedding,” she’d declared sagely, repeating what had been her calming mantra during the planning phase of their engagement, “and love is not about a commercial holiday.”

And yet, somehow, Ron found himself wandering aimlessly through a crowded flower shop early on the morning of the fourteenth. Hermione had only sent him out for a few items they’d forgot, but he’d passed no fewer than three Grand Romantic Gestures on his way down their street. It started with a surprise proposal complete with a flash mob, then a yard fully decorated with streamers and a banner proclaiming that “Bonnie, you are my whole heart,” to a man reciting what Ron was sure was very symbolic and moving poetry to a sobbing woman clutching his hand. And so, he found himself in the flower shop, wondering how on earth he could surprise the smartest woman in the world.

The trouble was, this being their sixth Valentine’s Day, he’d already covered all the basics. The first year had been the roses, more than he could count, delivered to her at breakfast in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, with the closest thing to a love letter he’d ever written. Having set the bar so high before he’d turned nineteen, it wasn’t unfamiliar to feel a certain sort of shame when he realized his best idea was to settle for a dozen red roses bound up in a purple ribbon.

Still, Hermione seemed pleased enough when he got back. “You didn’t have to, Ron, but this is very sweet, thank you!” She beamed, kissing him on the cheek as he arranged the flowers in a vase on the kitchen table. “Why don’t I make us a nice dinner tonight? My treat, whatever you like.”

“Okay,” Ron said uncertainly. “You don’t want to go out or anything?”

“Not particularly. Saturdays are about the only day we get to ourselves, aren’t they?” Hermione settled into their armchair and pulled a book from one of the many stacks that had formed in every nook and cranny of their small flat. (They’d wait to buy a house, they’d decided, til they were ready to have children - in a couple of hypothetical years, safely in the future.) “Come here and relax a bit. I’m sure there’s some sort of sport on the telly.”

Ron sat hesitantly on the floor in front of her, grabbing one of her feet and working her muscles with his thumbs. “You know this is our first Valentine’s married, yeah?”

Hermione shrugged without looking up from her book. “It’s a Saturday at home with my lovely husband.”

“You don’t mind that I didn’t set up a flash mob or write any poetry?”

“Sweetheart, if you ever flash mob me, I’ll be tempted to file for divorce.”

Ron snorted. “Feeling’s mutual. I just feel a bit unromantic, y’know?”

“We’ve got our whole lives to be romantic. Besides, it’s the little things like this that make a marriage last.” She raised her eyes to his and smiled, wiggling her toes as he continued to rub her feet.

“You’re always saying that,” Ron remarked, poking her ankle gently. “Maybe you just have a foot thing.”

“Yes, that’s it, a foot fetish. That’s the basis for our relationship, really.”

“Always knew it.” Ron raised an eyebrow. “I was serious about the poetry.”

“Alright,” Hermione smirked. “Let’s hear it, then.”

“Roses are red, violets are blue, your name is Hermione, and I love you,” Ron said smoothly, making it to the last syllable before they both dissolved into guffaws.

“Really, Ron, the flowers are more than enough,” Hermione said once they’d recovered.

“I know you’re not one to ask for gifts, it’s just…they just don’t say what they ought,” Ron explained. “This holiday’s a bit ridiculous, yeah, but there’s something to be said for doing something crazy because you want to let a person know that, ‘hey, every time I look at you, I remember that I’m the luckiest person in the world, and no matter how boring our lives seem from the outside, you will never be the boring part.’”

“Now that, my dear, is poetry,” Hermione remarked softly, leaning forward to give him a sound kiss.

Because forever was made up of every single day, and the biggest love was in the smallest things.
