I want...

(Day 7 of 30 day OTP challenge - Babies)

(AO3 LINK)

By the time Rose was born, Harry and Draco had been together for a couple of years and Draco’s relationships with both Hermione and Ron were amicable and even friendly. So when little Rose was born, Draco had no excuse to wiggle out of going to St. Mungo to visit them and the newest addition to their family. And oddly enough, he didn’t really want a reason not to go. 

But that didn’t mean he was not somewhat awkward when he and Harry arrived at the hospital. He was always a bit awkward around babies. And it was just extra awkward because it was a Weasley baby.

However, when Harry took Rose in his arms from a tired looking Hermione, Draco knew he’d be the next person the baby would be handed to. He tried to make a beeline towards the door, excuse ready on his lips. But Harry was faster.

“Draco, come hold her. She’s adorable!” Harry beamed at him.

“I really need to go to the loo.” Draco said, but his excuse sounded somewhat weak even to his own ears.

“You went to the loo before we left the flat. Now come here.” Harry insisted in what Draco referred to as “the authoritative” tone. 

Draco stood no chance, so he slowly moved towards Harry. When he was in arms’ reach, Harry handed him Rose gently. All eyes were on him and Draco just wanted to hand the baby back to Harry and bolt. But then Harry would be very disappointed and Draco didn’t want that. So he persevered.

Baby Rose had closed her eyes. Draco felt a bit relieved at that. Harry rearranged Draco’s hold a bit so Draco was cradling the baby lose to his chest. It wasn’t so hard. He still felt a bit awkward. But it wasn’t really as frightening as he expected.

He felt a hand on his shoulder and before he could turn to look at Harry, warm breath tickled his ear. 

“I want a baby too.”

Draco almost dropped Rose.

The Australian Reptile Park has released a 20-second clip of the newest tiny addition to its king brown snake family taking its first breath and people are losing their cool over how cute the baby reptile is.

The video was shot by the park’s head of reptiles and venom, Billy Collett, and captured the youngling in what looks like a mid-yawn. We wonder how long before this newborn loses its “cuteness” — king brown snakes are one of the longest venomous snakes in the world. (Source)

The long time running game between you and your brother’s best friend started when you noticed his fascination with boobs—yours specifically. It was never supposed to amount to more than harmless flirting and lingering glances, but now, one year later, Jimin was ready to change that.

alternatively: Jimin and you play a game. the loser is fucked. metaphorically. literally. all the above??

Wolf pup and Border Collie play date

Nikai the 9-week-old gray wolf pup and Faye the 13-week-old border collie pup had a playdate (filmed June 16, 2014)

The two cute canids met up so that Nikai could benefit from socializing with another puppy. Faye is a perfect date for him - patient, intelligent and boundlessly energetic - she likes to control the toys, but she constantly engages Nikai and is completely comfortable roughhousing with him.

Nikai is the newest adorable addition to the Wolf Conservation Center’s Ambassador Pack. Today, as an Ambassador wolf, Nikai helps WCC wolves Atka, Zephyr, and Alawa open the door to understanding the importance and plight of their wild kin. No longer a pup, Nikai has become a powerful presence in the fight to preserve wolves’ rightful place in the environment.
