I don’t even have just one “son” anymore. Now it’s more like “a medium sized army of jilted, underappreciated grown ass men that I need to wrap in blankets and shield from the world.”

Draco x Hermione: Rival Candidates for Minister of Magic
  • Hermione begrudgingly accepts that she’s the best choice for Minister of Magic candidacy
  • Draco has spent decades cleaning up the Malfoy name, so of course his final play is to run for Minister of Magic
  • As soon as they both announce it, the Wizarding World goes crazy
  • Although Hermione has the young vote, the older generations will always prefer a Malfoy to be in charge
  • Even if this Malfoy has done everything in his power to stop being associated with pureblood elitism
  • He even donated to Granger’s S.P.E.W for fuck’s sake!
  • But Hermione isn’t buying any of it
  • So during their first official private meeting she accuses him of doing it all for the press
  • Which, alright, he is
  • But that’s not the whole reason and he claims he’s actually changed
  • The campaigning starts and they’re both forced to see each other in various political events
  • They end up arguing every time
  • Sometimes publicly and sometimes not
  • In the end they must bite their tongues and shake hands
  • The debates are always interesting, and they’ve both won and lost
  • Until Hermione (with the help of her advisor, Ginny) starts a really nasty campaign bad-mouthing the Malfoys for all they did during the war
  • His poll numbers start to drop almost immediately 
  • And that night he barges into her house, unannounced, and in a fit of rage
  • “What the fuck, Granger!? That was a low move and you know it!”
  • “Oh like you haven’t been playing dirty, Malfoy!”
  • “I haven’t! But if that’s what you want, get ready because I will. Fuck. You. Up.”
  • “I’d like to see you try”
  • Neither of them notice how close they are to each other
  • Or how heavy the air suddenly got around them
  • But next thing they know, Hermione’s tearing off his clothes as he pins her against the wall
  • Draco makes sure to kiss that infuriating mouth of hers as much as he can before reality sets in
  • And boy, did it set in
  • Right after they finish, Draco leaves. He doesn’t make a public appearance for two weeks
  • Everyone thinks he’s gonna drop out at that point
  • And maybe he is, he just doesn’t know anymore
  • But Hermione knocks on his door the day before a very important public event
  • She convinces him to return and apologizes for her unfair campaign
  • “We started this together. No matter the results, I think we should finish it, together.”
  • Draco returns, stronger than ever, and his poll numbers quickly pick up
  • It’s a very close race and nobody knows what’s going to happen
  • What also nobody knows is that Draco and Hermione have been seeing each other secretly behind the scenes
  • Eyes meeting across conference rooms
  • Quick get-togethers after an intense debate
  • “Randomly” running into each other during their capaign tours
  • They can’t help it, being together is the only thing getting them through this whole deal
  • Which is highly ironic because they’re both terrified of what’s gonna happen once somebody actually wins
  • They don’t mention it, though, because this their thing was supposed to be for “fun” and “I still want to win”
  • The closer the voting is, the more they fight, in and out of the spotlight
  • And they’ve both thought about quitting multiple times
  • But when the day finally comes, neither of them can bear to watch the results without the other
  • So they organize a big party with both their teams in the name of ‘unity’
  • The tension is high, the race is extremely close, and they wait for the results well into the night
  • They walk up next to each other seconds before the announcement
  • And they hold hands
  • “The newly elected Minister of Magic is…”

Ye Magick Shoppe for 5E

By Dracomortua:

Your players’ ship arrives at the docks at last. They go up to the first stevedore or whombler they see and say: ‘Excuse me there, hard working fellow - but where is the local magic shop?’:

Suddenly this all takes a sharp turn and the DM goes 'Out Of Character’: “What? Magic shop?” You kindly explain that there isn’t such a thing. Says so right there in the DMG, see? It is impossible for one to exist in a 5e D&D world. Period.

Your sassy players do not give up. Someone points out such shops exist here in reality on Earth, despite having no provable magic. There are even different kinds (lots sell incense and religious stuff, some selling bits o’ stone, people may want to stare at your crystal balls and it just goes wild from there). They point out a variant human’s feat can give any commoner a bunch of cantrips and one first level spell. So why doesn’t anyone own anything enchanted?

This guide gives you RaW self-defense. You can have as many magic shops as you like without breaking any rules. The trick is to put items in them that are interesting, fun and even useful despite the fact that almost nothing is an uncommon or rare magic item.

Is there a fic where Bucky is immortal (or close to it) and meets Steve during the war? They flirt, maybe have a short affair, but Bucky isn’t interesting in committing to someone - especially during war time - who could die some day (soon). War is fun for short affairs. He finds Steve beautiful and fascinating, though.  Thinks of him sometimes after the plane goes down. 

He doesn’t like the longing and regret it causes, because that’s what he’d been trying to avoid the whole time.  And maybe he became a little too attached to Steve.  Maybe he let himself think that Steve wasn’t as easy to kill as he turned out to be after witnessing Steve survive a bullet wound that would have killed anyone else within moments.

Almost 70 years go by.

Then it’s 2011 and Captain America is trending on Twitter.  Bucky’s not in America, so he assumes someone else was found to step into those big shoes and doesn’t pay it much attention. Doesn’t search out information.  

Steve finds him, instead.  Not deliberately. Bucky is walking down the street one day and turns a corner and comes face to face with Steve Rogers, and he’s just as beautiful and arresting as he was the first moment Bucky saw him on the battlefield in Europe, even in a terrible ball cap and hoodie.

And Steve is shocked to see him.

“Hello, Steve,” Bucky says, and can’t help but smile that flirtatious, dirty smirk that got Steve into his bed in the first place. 

“Bucky,” Steve breathes, and oh it’s been a long time since someone has used that name.  Bucky is filled with inexplicable fondness for the man in front of him, had forgotten the sound of his voice and the true shape of his mouth, and he thinks that if surviving on ice for 70 years passes a few of Bucky’s tests. “You look good for someone who should be dead,” Steve continues.

And oh. Right. Bucky had forgotten about what that mouth was capable of.  “So do you,” he answers, deliberately dragging his eyes down Steve’s body.

(and yeah I got carried away) (not sorry)

St. O's (Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension Spoilers)

So they are now talking about outfits and Star says sometimes she lets her wand do the deciding, she was referring to her headgear mainly but she said at St. O’s she let her wand decide on her headgear so it is a reasonable assumption she let her wand decide on her outfit too. It doesn’t go onto say how she decided on Marco’s disguise but assuming she did the same thing with Marco, the wand pretty much chose to dress Marco as a Princess.

Given it already seems magical devices and beings seem to gender Marco as female or at the very least disregard Marco as male; Glossaryck, Mewberty Star, etc this would make sense.
