ML FANDOM WEEK 8/14-8/20

Paige missed breakfast.

She felt it was a wise decision- wisdom being long overdue as a factor in her decision-making skills quite frankly. After all, she’d rather not vomit in front of royalty.

Though she had a sneaking feeling she already had. Her and Leo were…well they had been toeing the line between ridiculous drunk and blackout drunk. She was fairly certain they’d tried to steal a statue of Leo’s great grandfather, King Phillipe, the night before.

Pushing open the heavy door, Paige entered the prince’s private study with all the grace of a baby deer. As soon as the door was closed, and the cool air hit her, she heaved a sigh of relief. Leo’s study was a paradise in a palace- marked with only the faintest traces of opulence. He kept it simple, comfortable, and (due to the vast array of ancient, delicate tomes he’d collected) dark.

It was that darkness which Paige sought. Her guest room was stunning, fit for a queen even, but it was far too bright for the hangover which rivalled the sun in its size.

“Morning.”

In her blurrier-than-usual periphery, Paige could just about see who’d interrupted her quest for darkness and quiet. She ought to have known. “Shhh,” she hushed, her eyes narrowing at the sound she herself had made. “Too loud. Everything. You. Me. The dust. Everything loud.”

Without thinking, she pressed a finger to Henry’s lips and the prince’s head servant smiled sheepishly from behind it, his tanned skin flushing deeper. When he next spoke, it was but a whisper. “Nobody’s ever accused me of that before. Being too loud.”

“Henry you’re a wonderful human being,” Paige sighed, flopping into an armchair. That proved to be a mistake, as her brain exploded into a thousand burning stars at the contact. “But you’re still talking, dear.”

“Yes. Of course. Sorry.”

Henry sat at the drawing table, sketching idly, and Paige wondered what he was doing in the study without the prince. Surely, he’d be looking after Leo? He was probably in a much worse state than she was. Regardless, the pair settled into an amiable silence which she welcomed… at first. But she could never stay silent for too long when she was comfortable around someone. Even with a hangover.

“I probably shouldn’t have drunk so much,” she uttered, side-eyeing Henry and feeling unusually nervous. He said nothing for a while, continuing to sketch, but Paige could make out the faintest hint of a smile. The which longed to be bigger than its owner would allow.

If she’d had the strength, she might have considered lightly throwing a cushion at him. On second thought, that sounded cruel. She didn’t want to ruin his drawing.

“Probably not,” he conceded eventually, his voice calm. Paige raised a little in her seat.

“You don’t judge me?”

Henry dropped his pencil, swivelling around to face her with eyes so wide and green that Paige’s heart stuttered. She held his gaze somehow, but the stuttering was getting stronger and her moult felt even drier than when she’d woken up, as dehydrated as a desert pilgrim.

“Why would I-” Henry fumbled over his words, looking somehow baffled and desperate. “I would never jud- no.” He coughed, looking away and his eyes lost a little bit of their brightness. “No, I don’t judge you. Of course not, Paige. Never.”

“Oh,” Paige blinked, sitting back. “Right.”

“I judge Leo though,” Henry mumbled after a pause, making Paige snort with laughter. The weird tension between them passed and Henry was smiling fully now. He so rarely did that. Paige never realised he had a small freckle by his mouth. “It’s true though, he challenged the girl from Eilbion to a drinking match.”

“We aren’t all drunken louts you know,” Paige smirked, grabbing a cushion and hugging it. “Besides, you Andavillans are the ones who are supposed to drink wine from dusk to dawn.”

“I doubt I would keep my job, if that were true,” Henry replied with a quirk of his eyebrow, and Paige had to bury her face in the cushion to hide how large and ridiculous her smile had become. How did he always have a way of making things feel better? Even physical afflictions. It was incredible.

“Hardly,” she scoffed. “Leo would be dead without you, and he knows it too!”

Henry shuffled, the smile faltering as a bashful look overcame him, the way it always did when Paige complimented him. She spared him further discomfort by changing the subject. “Where is our long suffering prince anyway?”

“Skye took pity on me the second time he…umm… what the word?” he frowned, and Paige’s eyes widened. It was unlike Henry to forget a word in Eilbian. He must have been up all night looking after Leo.

Henry turned to her, the corner of his lip wrinkled out of frustration. It was adorable, and entirely unfair. “What you do when you’re sick,” he gestured a spewing motion from his mouth. “Vomit! He ahh- he vomited twice onto my shoes. So, Skye relieved me of my duty for the night after that. I’ve not wanted to disturb them since.”

It was as Henry mentioned vomit that Paige’s body remembered that she, too, was gravely hungover. A wave of nausea rolled her stomach and she groaned, leaning forward.

Henry was on the floor by her side in an instant. “Are you alright? Is it because I mentioned my shoes? I threw them away, I- don’t know why that is relevant, I’m sorry?” He looked baffled again, and Paige would have laughed if she weren’t in the middle of a deep, calming breath. The nausea passed and she looked up at Henry with a reassuring nod.

“I’m fine, it was just the wine I had last night. Tried to say good morning to the floor. I bested it.”

Henry’s shoulders relaxed. “That’s an imaginative way of describing such an ailment,” he let out a shy chuckle, scratching his hair. The dark, messy curls hung loosely for a change, they looked like they’d be so soft…

Paige shook her head. “Huh?” she said rudely, for Henry had just asked her something and she had no idea what it was.

“I asked if you wanted anything. Something that might help?” Henry replied, his voice gentle, not a hint of a rebuke for Paige accidentally ignoring him before. Her heart warmed, along with her face, and she stared down at her lap to avoid looking into those starling green eyes any more.

It was only then that she registered Henry’s hand on her thigh.

He seemed to notice at the same time, jerking his hand away and standing up so quickly he almost stumbled. It was the most ungainly she’d ever seen him behave. It was almost like he’d been burned.

“S-some coffee maybe?” he blurted out, voice strangled, looking at everything except her, until his eyes rested on the plush rug below them. He looked like he wanted to melt into it.

Paige couldn’t reply, her feelings more mixed than the list of alcoholic beverages she’d consumed the night before. When she came to stand (gingerly, as she didn’t want to disturb her stomach again) she rested her hand against his arm. “The best cure for a hangover, I feel, is good company,” she hummed, nodding like a widow telling an Old Wives Tale. “Though I would probably sell every friend I have for a cup of Andavillan coffee, so I’m not one to judge. So can I be selfish and ask for both? As long as you’re the company.”

Henry huffed out a laugh, his gaze fond, and Paige’s stomach began to roll for an entirely different reason.

“I’ll be happy to oblige, Miss Oakley,” he replied with a bow.

~For now have a preview~

Got any k2 fanfic recs?

i have a really old fic rec i made back in the day (keep in mind this list is super old lol) and unfortunately i haven’t read as many k2 fics recently as i would have liked to, but here are some really good ones:

• Mysterion Trilogy - indirectkissesiniceland

     Four years of college didn’t get Kyle any closer to figuring out what he wants to do with his life, but his friend Jimmy pulls through for him with an opening in the newspaper office where he works. Newbies have never been known to get glamorous work, of course, and Kyle’s first assignment proves it: a filler piece on a costumed vigilante calling himself “Mysterion.” When a dangerous situation brings him face-to-face with the hero himself, however, Kyle—and the growing number of readers his articles on the friendly neighborhood superhero bring in—seeks the answer to a question that burns within him: Who is Mysterion?


Gold Digger indirectkissesiniceland

     When Kenny flunks out of Home Ec, his female classmates tease him about not having what it takes to “find a nice, rich man to marry.” Well, he’s going to show them. Everybody knows their future valedictorian comes from one of South Park’s wealthiest families and will make his own fortune as a successful lawyer one day. Seducing him will prove that Kenny isn’t a Home Ec failure. He’ll be a trophy husband if it kills him (and it probably will, at least once).


Required Reading - indirectkissesiniceland    

     Kenny is not particularly excited about going to the library until he lays eyes on the cute redhead at the librarian’s desk. Stan begs him not to tell said librarian that he’d like to check *him* out. Kenny doesn’t listen. 


Lionheart - indirectkissesiniceland 

     The war between Humans and Elves is over, but not without its bloodshed. Boyhood lost too soon, the Elven prince assumes the throne in the wake of his departed parents; the Wizard, former royal vizier to the Humans’ kingdom, rules in the stead of the young heir. But the Princess is coming of age, and the Wizard’s rule is coming to an end. In theory, that is.


i also have a ton of fics favorited on my ff.net account that aren’t on my other k2 fic rec. i haven’t read them recently enough to remember if they’re good or not, but if u want i can compile a list of those~

Bettie Paige

interesting that she has Uranus and Venus together in the 1st with Pisces. Venus and Uranus mix together to give her the appearance of beauty and art and innovation and a rebel spirit. Which was evident in what she did being that it was really ahead of her time and by chart ruler Jupiter, she has in Scorpio, she was expansive regarding her sexual expression.
