nautical holiday cheer

land-of-the-nautics  asked:

I was thinking something like, "Draco Malfoy has only seen a golden aura once." I wanted to do a dramione fic where Draco has this special power that lets him see the auras of every person he meets. Each color (and their intensity) means different things. Hermione's gold aura is really rare because he's never met anyone else with it. It would take place maybe a little after the war, because Draco can see Voldemort's black (not a good color) aura and ends up siding with the Order. Thank you!:)

Pairing: Draco Malfoy x Hermione Granger

Setting: Canon AU

Draco Malfoy had only seen a golden aura once.

There had been variations, of course; buttery off-whites, bright citrus yellows, pale oranges and shimmering pastels and wavering metallic overlays, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it silver, black-edged crinkled bronze, a glittery copper-red that had felt as dangerous as it did entrancing.

Gold, though.

Gold was unique.

Gold was brilliant, and blinding, and baffling—because it was inherently soft, malleable, easy to mold and shape and scar. But it was rare. Precious. The kind of thing that started wars—the kind of thing that ended them, too.

He supposed that it made sense, then, that the only golden aura he’d ever seen belonged to Hermione Granger.
