The pub is raucous tonight. It seems like everyone and their mum decided to hit up the Three Broomsticks, and Rosmerta only had time to sling their drinks across the counter before hustling off to deal with another round of patrons. It just errs on the side of uncomfortable; the close packed bodies, the almost deafening levels of chatter, the slowly building humidity that leaves his skin damp, even after he rolled up the sleeves of his flannel in an attempt to cool down.
It’s a bit chaotic, but then again, he thrives off of chaos. At least, that’s what he says after watching some bloke spill his drink on a girl in an attempt to feel her up, only to receive a punch to the jaw. It results in a minor scuffle and he just sits off to the side observing it. It reminds him of an Andy Warhol painting for some reason; just a blur of colour and movement.
James Potter is not good at flip cup.
Or, more accurately, he’s not good at this blaspheme of flip cup that Sirius came up with. He’s making them chug a bitter stout instead of beer, and James grimaces the whole way through, costing him and Remus significant time.
He gives up after the third round of losing- he doesn’t hate himself that much, plus he’s sure that if he doesn’t wash down the taste with something else, his tastebuds would never forgive him- and Sirius pats him on the back.
“Oh don’t be sad, Prongs,” he says, pinching his cheeks.
James bats his hands away. “You’re a sadistic bastard.”
“Funny, that’s what my mum used to call me growing up.”
she was the daughter of the spinner, a simple girl with simple needs that talked to flowers the woods were her home, the crows her family and she danced in summer meadows, one upon a time until a prince came along who promised a dance for a kiss, a kingdom for a night when she woke up to his absence the next morning, he had not only burned her faith to ashes but her body as well and when she rose, she swore to breath fire into the world that had treated her with so much darkness
This was a request and it’s an X-men kind of crossover, so pls enjoy.
“They’re not even wizards! What is the old man even thinking inviting them here?” Draco complained over breakfast to the whole Slytherin table, making sure that his voice carried as far as possible.
He directed a glare at the new table set right up at the front where five of the students from Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters currently sat eating peacefully. He intensified his glare, willing one of them to turn back to acknowledge him but none of them did.
“That may be so, but they definitely aren’t muggles.” Pansy reasoned, pouring milk into her tea with a neat flourish.
“Pansy, this is the Triwizard Tournament. Not the Trimutant Tournament.” Draco raised his voice again and this time one of the mutants did turn around making Draco recoil involuntarily.
Six eyes. He’s got six eyes.
The six-eyed mutant boy gave him a scathing look before turning back to his breakfast and Draco barely managed not to flinch.
“They’re freaks I tell you, freaks!” He whisper-shouted vehemently.
“I think they’re kinda hot.” Blaise cut in, absentmindedly chewing on a pork rib. Draco choked on his food and goggled at him, lost for words.
“Really, Blaise.” Said Pansy flatly. “You think that’s hot?” She pointed her chin in the direction of a girl with abnormally fiery red hair who was currently using her very long tongue to lick her plate clean without even having to pick it up.
Blaise stared in disgusted fascination for a short moment then shrugged. “Well okay, not all of them.” He relented. “But look at that one at the end.” He gestured with his fork.
Draco’s eyes followed the utensil and came to rest on a girl.
Well he’s not wrong, he thought.
The longer he looked at her, the harder it was for him to look away. There was just something so aesthetically pleasing about her and Draco kept staring until Pansy jabbed him in the ribs, hard.
He stifled a yelp and rubbed the sore spot gingerly. “That was not necessary, Pans.” He grumbled.
Pansy grinned cheekily. “I rather think it was.”
Draco threw a croissant at her.
“Hey, you know what?” Blaise chimed in.
“No, what.” Draco and Pansy said simultaneously.
Blaise gestured to the girl again. “Apart from being insanely attractive; don’t you guys think she looks a little- I don’t know- normal? For a mutant, I mean.”
Draco studied the girl for a moment and found that Blaise was right. While the other four mutants had obvious tells that they weren’t humans (spikes, tails, multiple eyes etc.), the girl all three of them were currently scrutinizing had a fairly human appearance.
“I bet she breathes fire.’ Blaise mused.
“Or ice.” Draco countered.
“Maybe her power is really mild, like making plants grow.” Pansy suggested sarcastically.
“Or maybe it’s- oh shit. Abort abort abort! She’s looking our way.!” Blaise hissed as he grabbed a newspaper, shaking it open and disappearing behind it.
Draco hastily made a show of stirring his porridge while Pansy merely rolled her eyes.
“You two are really pathetic.” She told them.
Draco couldn’t agree with her more.
Draco can’t sleep. No matter what he does or what position he changes to, sleep just refuses to come. For some strange reason, he can’t stop thinking about the mutant girl. Granted she did give him and his friends a rather withering glare for all their staring that morning. There was just something about her that had managed to catch his eye. He doesn’t know what it is, but there’s just something…
Yep, he can’t sleep.
Quietly, so as to not wake up his dorm mates, Draco slides out of bed and puts on his slippers (yes, he wears slippers, shut up). He grabs his wand from his bedside table, stowing it carefully away in his pyjama pocket. He figures a quiet stroll around would be what he needs to get his thoughts together, so with determination, he sets out to do just that.
Who knew the castle could be so quiet? Draco was used to seeing the corridors filled and buzzing with life, but right now, just after midnight, everything was still. He likes it.
He walks around aimlessly, not exactly sure where he’s headed. That question is answered soon enough when he finds himself walking out the doors and making his way towards the quidditch pitch.
This is more like it. The breeze in his hair and clothes, the smell of grass, the moonlight glinting off of the hoops, the weirdly shaped thing sitting on the stands and the- wait.
Draco backtracks. What the heck is that on the stands? He squints hard at it but he’s too far away to see what it is. For one horrible moment, he thinks it’s a Dementor but immediately let’s go of that idea. Dementor’s don’t just casually sit on stands in the middle of the night and besides, Dumbledore sent those things away ages ago.
So what is it?
Cautiously, he takes several steps in it’s direction and when it still doesn’t move he takes another. Maybe it’s sleeping, he reasons. He takes another step and a twig snaps noisily causing the creature to jump up in surprise giving Draco a clear view of it’s figure in the moonlight.
His mouth drops open.
“You have wings???”
The mutant girl eyes him up and down. “Ah, you’re one of the starers from this morning.” She recounts bluntly. “Stalking is also not cool, you know.”
“I’m not stalking you.” Draco says hotly. “I was out for a midnight stroll.”
The girl raised her eyebrow sardonically, not saying anything. She shifts her stance a little and Draco gets a good view of her wings.
They were huge. Twice the size of her body and pure white, made up of layers upon layers of soft feathers. Magnificent, really.
“See something that interests you?” The girl teases, smiling slightly.
Draco snaps out of his daze. “N-not particularly, no.”
“Well, you’re the first person to see them since I’ve come to this school, so you should feel honored.” She tells him conspiratorially, giving him an over-exaggerated wink.
Draco is horrified when he feels his cheeks heat up and quickly coughs to hide it. “W-where do they go? When we can’t see them, I mean. Do they just disappear or something?”
“Not exactly, no. How do I explain this?” She taps her chin thoughtfully, her hair falling into her eyes a little.
She has nice eyes.
“They kind of contract back into my body, I guess. Then when I want to unfurl them they just… pop back out.”
“Does it hurt?”
“Can you fly with them?”
“Of course I can.”
“Are they soft?”
“… why don’t you feel them?”
“What, really?” He asks, surprised.
The girl narrows her eyes contemplatively but then extends one of her wings out towards him. “Go ahead.”
Draco immediately reaches out before she changes her mind. He gasps slightly when his fingers come into contact with the feathers.
“They’re really soft.” He breathes, stroking his hand over them gently.
The girl shrugs. “They’re just feathers. Feathers are supposed to be soft. You know, there’s a girl back at the academy called Trinity, and she has these awesome pitch black butterfly wings. Next to those mine aren’t even half as impressive.” She sighed, moving her wings away. Draco mourned the loss.
“I think I prefer your wings.” He stated.
The girl gives him a curious look. “Really?” She asked quizzically.
“Yeah, they make you look like an angel.” He answered.
It takes a moment for Draco’s brain to process the words that had just left his mouth.
“Wait, no.” He backtracks. “No-not that I think you look like an angel because you don’t by the way. I’m saying you-you have angel like wings and they just…you know…” He trails off pathetically looking anywhere but at the girl. Why oh why did he have to say that out loud?
“No ones ever… called me… an angel… before…” The girl says, her voice unsteady and Draco chances a glance at her. She’s looking him with wide eyes and her cheeks are dusted with a little pink.
That’s a nice color on her.
“Wait, what. No one? No one at all?” He feels the need to clarify.
She shakes her head as if to clear it. “Everyone back at the academy calls them cockatoo wings. Have you ever met a cockatoo? I’ll tell you right now if those assholes are gonna be angels of anything, then they’re Satan’s angels from hell.” Her words are nonchalant but her tone is slightly bitter. Draco wonders if he’s hit a sore spot and decides to change the subject.
“You do know it’s past curfew, right? You’re lucky there aren’t any teachers about.” Draco fought the urge to kick himself. Curfew? Out of all the things out there to talk about, he mentions curfew?
The girl brandishes a small scroll of parchment. “I have a permission slip.” Then a sly expression crosses her features. “Do you?”
“I don’t.” Draco admits. “But I’m Draco Malfoy, I don’t need a permission slip to be out on a midnight stroll.”
The girl perks up for some reason. “Draco Malfoy? That’s your name? Huh, it’s really cool.” She looked oddly happy at this and Draco felt a weird fluttery feeling in his stomach. He’d never gotten that kind of reaction before. Whenever people learned that he was a Malfoy they either grovelled to get on his good side or shied away in fear. The girl’s reaction was… nice, in a way.
“So, what’s your name?” He inquired tentatively.
“[f/n] [l/n]” She replied almost immediately, eyebrow quirking slightly.
Now what? Draco thought. What on earth do you say after introductions? Do you shake hands? Should he shake hands?
He was interrupted from his little dilemma when [f/n] began flapping her wings experimentally. She caught his eye and in one swift movement they disappeared back into her body leaving no trace that they had ever been there.
“I guess I’ve stretched my wings enough for now so I think I’m gonna head back inside.” She held out her hand. “It was nice meeting you, Dragon.”
Draco could practically feel his insides melting into a pool of mush. She called him Dragon. His own mother calls him that so it shouldn’t be endearing. What is wrong with him? For fucks sake, he needs to get his act together.
“N-nice meeting you too.” He took her hand and then all of a sudden all he can think about is how soft they were, just like her wings……
“Yule Ball!” He blurts out before he could stop himself.
There’s a still silence as [f/n} blinks a few times, her grip still loosely on his hand. “What?”
Draco swallows. Well, he took a step, he’ll keep walking. “The Triwizard Tournament usually comes with a Yule Ball which requires you take a-a date.”
She continues to stare.
“So basically I’m asking if maybe you’d like to- you know, if maybe you’d like to…”
She’s still staring. Draco gives up.
Draco hears. He processes. “…huh?”
“You’re asking me to the ball, right? I said ‘okay’.” Oh god she’s got that weird happy expression on her face again and Draco just knows he’s done for. He takes a deep breath, gathering up whats left of his dignity.
“I’ll pick you at seven, don’t be late.” He goes for a bow but then remembers that he is clad only in pyjamas and a pair of slippers therefore probably looking like an idiot. He settles for quick nod of the head, ignoring the amused twinkle in [f/n]’s eyes, before walking away back the way he had come.
He’s already halfway across the pitch when [f/n] calls out to him. He turns too quickly for it to look casual and makes a mental note to chastise himself for it later. Malfoy’s need to be cool and suave, Draco. Cool and suave.
“I just remembered that I’ve already picked out a dress and it’s green so please don’t pick something that would clash!” She shouts into cupped hands.
Draco can’t help the surprised smile that etches itself onto his face and because Malfoy’s don’t shout, he signals to her that he understands.
“I don’t think green will be a problem.” He says to himself.

She got in her car, she had to see him. To apologize for turning him down, for making him feel terrible about himself. Because the truth was that she was in love with him. And being in love with someone who’s so evil, who was evil, who does so many bad things…that’s not like her. She wasn’t raised this way.
Everything inside of her was a red flag. From the moment she met him. But she was a curious young woman. He sparked her somehow, everything telling her to run the other way because her parents taught her that people like him could hurt her. So she turned him down. Because he’s a vampire. Because he’s different. But her parents told her that being different was good. Everything she believed in, was caving in on her. She was conflicted.
All my OTHER wings of fire ocs! Payara is the only one not shown but w/e.
-Top left is North Star, an Ice/Night hybrid. She’s very Ice passing as u can see. Kinda just looks like a runt Icewing when her wings are folded. She does have the stars on her underside in a sunrise color. I may give her subtle nightwing abilities as well, since she can’t breathe ice or fire.
-Top right is Astralsight, a regular ol Nightwing gal and my first wof oc. She doesn’t have any mind abilities, but she’s pretty physically strong for her age.
-Bottom left is Mudcrab, regular Mudwing. I might make him an outcast from the rest of his clutch. He’s probably the former bigwings.
-And the last one is a normal Rainwing named Jacaranda. He’s an assassin for Payara and kills with disturbing stealth and apathy, but that’s all for a price. Payara pays him very well and he lives in luxury when he’s not on a job.
I’ll develop them all more in the future but these are just quick descriptions for now to go with the art
she breathes fire.
her razor sharp claws give way to a massive frame silhouetted by steel cage wings.
she has a sword for a tongue
daggers for eyes. a hole in her chest.
chain link fence ribs and kevlar for skin.
She guards a princess heart in the highest room of the tallest tower.
It’s been there for years and grown quite comfortable with its accommodations
The mountains around her castle,
they stand noble. proud.
they keep others out. they keep her in
she knows not which is more important,
only that her lonely catches the sunlight and refracts off the snowy peaks.
I wonder if you have figured out who this poem is about yet, you or I.
no? me neither.
excerpts from poems I never should have written #37
I got a prompt!!! How about... Oh oh... Ok... *Clears throat, steepling my fingers* this might be a lil long winded but here's what I got. Viktor is retired and Yuuri is still skating, viktor still his coach. They bought a house in heastu, and are walking home from the rink... They're walking up the drive when they see a basket on there stoop... Mewling coming from the basket.... A lil baby with a letter on top of it's belly laid in the basket... What do you think???
HELLO FRIEND!!! THANK YOU FOR BEING THE NICEST PERSON EVER AND REQUESTING THE NICEST IDEA EVER!!! (we now have Lori’s custody, we own her lol) Anyways…I hope you like this!! Even though I first thought you meant a kitten and yeah XD
Life and Love.
Viktor had thought he knew what those words meant. He didn’t
need to look them up in a dictionary to define them, they rolled out his tongue
on a casual daily basis, he spit them, voiced them a thousand times with the
security only habit could provide. He was Viktor Nikiforov, after all. Owner of
a great life, five gold medals, a beautiful poodle named Makkachin, and a smile
that could set any stare on fire.
How could it have been possible, in any way, that someone
like him didn’t know about Life and Love?
But all of a sudden, this clumsy guy stepped in with his
awkwardness and his glasses, making music with his body, and giving a
completely new meaning to two terms that, before, had seemed completely
They weren’t as obvious anymore.
What he could so easily define in the past, the solidity of
those words, would now melt into meaningless babbles when he looked at him,
when he heard him laugh, when he felt the needy press of fingers on his skin.
Suddenly, words weren’t enough.
He had built a whole new definition for Life and Love. A
wordless definition. That was so easily summarized into a specific shade of
brown, and that he only got when he stared at Yuuri in the eyes.
However, there were times when the meanings escaped his
restrains, and they flew in the empty air and away from his hold.
There were times when Yuuri wasn’t there, maybe at the rink
practicing or hanging out with Phichit. There were times, when Yuuri was busy
or uninterested, and Viktor’s roaming hands weren’t enough to convince him.
There were times when he was alone, maybe staring at the sea, feeling he still
had so much Life and Love inside of him he didn’t know where to fit, where to
It wasn’t Yuuri’s fault, he knew. He had no one to blame but
Sometimes Yuuri would find him sitting on the couch, looking
at his old performances, those in which he still had his long hair and way
before he started to question the meaning of Life and Love. Back then, both
were found on the ice. And Viktor sometimes desperately wanted to feel that
again, that youthful, innocent certainty, that precise definition. In those
moments, his husband would reach for him and hug him from behind, massage his
neck with loving, caring hands and plant some few kisses on his hair.
And right then, when Viktor stood up from the couch to pick
him up, carry him all the way to the bedroom and make love to him for hours, he
knew that was it. That was Life and Love.
But he wasn’t sure if it was all of it.
One afternoon, they were returning from the rink after a
busy day of practice, walking the warm streets of St. Petersburg with summer
being just around the corner. They were holding hands, just like they
always did, chatting about the routines and the moves Yuuri was having trouble
with, or even gossiping about some other skater or two. That was Viktor’s
favorite moment of the day. And he believed it was Yuuri’s too, judging by the
relaxed smile on his lips and the occasional caresses his thumb traced on the
back of his hand.
He was thinking just about that, of how lovely he looked as
he talked about his skating, eyes so shiny with passion that they reflected
then sunset thrice as strongly, so submerged into his favorite definition of
the two Ls…when he suddenly heard him cut off mid-sentence, and he followed
the path of his bugged, widened eyes that were resting somewhere that wasn’t
A basket. At the side of the road.
Only then, with the silence generated by shock, he was able
to hear the faint noise of whining, and he shared with his husband a
simultaneous panicked look.
Of course, they both had heard numerous stories about kids
being dumped on alleys or porches, waiting for someone to pick them up and
care. Of course they had heard about the cruelest crime of all, which was
abandoning a child. Of course they knew this was it. But hearing the story from the news has
nothing to do with actually hear the crying, the blabbering, the sobs of a
one-year-old inside a basket.
And by the time Yuuri was kneeling, picking the creature
between his arms, desperately rambling about how they needed to contact the
police right away…Viktor wasn’t listening.
His attention was fixed on those big, teary eyes, that small
furrowed nose and sobbing lips. Little hands instinctively reaching for the
heat of Yuuri’s chest as he was rocked back and forth, crying, desperate for a
bit of warmth. For a bit of Life and Love.
The immediate course of action was to feed him. They didn’t
know what was the last time the poor thing had eaten, and so they took her to
their apartment and gave her some milk. They had to stop by a store to buy some
supplies, even though they were obviously planning to contact the authorities
as soon as possible. But they needed some diapers and special food for the
The basket had a little note inside, written in Russian of
course, and Viktor could easily tell a huge amount of grammar and spelling
mistakes, and he couldn’t help but make assumptions. Maybe her parents couldn’t
take care of her, maybe they didn’t have the money…but why leave her there?
In the middle of nowhere?
By the time they got her to eat and sleep, it was already
nighttime. Viktor could see just how stressed his husband was. He could read
him very easily, and knew his empathy and kind heart were the culprits of his
silence and the tension accumulating in his shoulders. Viktor told him to
relax, that they could decide what to do the next day, and that he should
probably go take a shower.
Yuuri complied, carefully putting the sleeping baby into the
basket again, but this time with a much comfortable cushion underneath and the
heat of a cozy blanket.
Viktor was still in daze, not really sure of what he should
be doing, or what he should be feeling. He was numbed by surprise, the impact
of seeing such a scene. But he was forcefully taken out of his shock by the
surreal sound of crying he still couldn’t believe that was coming from his own
He picked the girl up, not really sure of how babies worked,
but the yelp the poor thing let out as he held her by her feet was enough of a
clue to understand he was doing something wrong. He grabbed her from under her
armpits instead, warily, almost afraid, as if she could start breathing out
fire at any second or jump at his neck with sharp teeth she didn’t even have.
How did someone stop a baby from crying?? Shaking it??
Nope, definitely not shaking it.
Maybe turning her around?
Ok he wasn’t good at this.
The baby kept crying and Viktor kept fearing he would lose
all of his hair in the term of one night. Didn’t these things come
with…instructions or something? Just to satisfy some sense of curiosity and
ridiculous hope, he pressed a finger to her belly-button, as if it were an
actual button that would stop the whining. But the only reaction he got, was an
instant kick on the face.
Much to his surprised, however, the crying ceased. But it
hadn’t been the belly-button, the baby was laughing at the way he held his nose
“What are you laughing at, you meanie!” he
frowned, getting nearer, but the baby didn’t seem to take him seriously as she
extended a hand to grab his nose “hey, let go! I know it’s a pretty
handsome nose but you can’t have it”
She chortled merrily, grabbing his eye-lid next, and
laughing even harder as Viktor blinked in pain.
Well, at least she stopped crying.
“Ouch! Keep those hands to yourself, young lady!”
He booped her nose, and realized that might have been the button
he had been looking for, since she gifted him the purest, fondest smile Viktor
had seen in years. He did it again, mouthing silly noises, enthralled by the
happy yelps and giggles he got for an answer, feeling the joy beginning to rub
He didn’t know how much time he spent playing with her,
ticking her belly and pinching her cheeks. But she was laughing, she was
beautifully laughing and Viktor was laughing, too. He felt cloyed, overwhelmed,
so full of emotions he couldn’t fit anything else. There were no worries, no
stresses, and no need to define Life and Love. Right then, he felt complete.
He hadn’t even noticed when the hum of the shower had
stopped, nor how much time Yuuri had been staring at him from the bathroom’s
door frame, wearing nothing but a towel around his waist, smiling to himself.
By that time, the little girl had fallen asleep, and she was clutching Viktor’s
finger in her tiny hand, occasionally taking it to her mouth to suck on it
affectionately. He was fascinated.
“Seems you get along quite well, huh?” Yuuri
chuckled softly, hugging him from behind, and planting a kiss to his temple. He
seemed to be feeling better.
“Yeah, Lori is perfect”
“That’s how I named her”
“Vitya, no” Yuuri sat beside him on the sofa, and
Viktor got to see the previous worry back in his eyes “We can’t name her,
love. She’s not ours”
“Yeah, but…” he debated if he should say the
following words, but they just burst out before he could find a gentler way to
phrase it “…what if she was?”
Yuuri blinked, staring at him with what he recognized as
disbelief, gaze torn between his husband and the baby on his arms.
“Yuuri, darling…wouldn’t you like to be a father? We
talked about this already, and you said you would like to someday…” the
look in Yuuri’s eyes made him stop mid-sentence.
“Oh, Vitya” he sighed rubbing his face, giving a
long sighed onto his own hands “I would love to, you know I do, but I
just…this is so sudden! I still have one or two more years at skating, I
don’t know if I could handle a baby and my career, I just…”
“But we can do it together, Yuuri! Together we can do
“A baby is not a joking matter, Viktor. We can’t just try. Maybe we should wait until I
“But look at her!” Viktor hugged her close, as if
someone may try to take her away from him “Lori is so beautiful! And she
“I think that Lori-” he stopped himself “the baby, needs a family who will take
good care of her…You are my coach, and you are just as busy as me. And I’m
“What are you afraid of?”
“I’m afraid to be a bad parent”
Viktor saw the beginning of tears shining in his husband’s
eyes, and he immediately closed the space between them, letting him hold Lori
so that he could hug him instead. He had been selfish and impulsive, he knew
Yuuri was an anxious, insecure person, and he hadn’t considered his emotions.
The idea of being parents was way too overwhelming for him to decide in just
one night. In fact, it was way too hurried for anyone. He was being irrational
and acting out of mere raw emotions. He needed to think things out.
“I’m sorry” he whispered, watching Yuuri’s gaze
getting lost in Lori as well, but immediately forcing himself to look away
“You are right…we shouldn’t hurry things up”
For the next week after they contacted the authorities and
left the baby at their custody, Viktor wasn’t the same as before.
He knew he shouldn’t act so mourning, he hadn’t lost
anything. His life was just like it was before, and he had always been a happy
man. He still had Yuuri, his friends, skating…yet, he couldn’t pretend he
didn’t notice the feeling of emptiness.
He returned to his habit of watching his old routines. Only
that he did it every day, and he spent an alarming amount of hours at it. And
when Yuuri walked in, tracing his fingertips down his neck and kissing him
soothingly, Viktor didn’t stand up to take him to bed. He just stood there,
silent, eyes fixed on the screen.
He noticed his husband was conflicted too, but they just
seemed unable to deal with the commotion together. They didn’t talk about it.
He would sometimes find Yuuri in the kitchen plainly staring at the wall, the
kettle boiling and whistling loudly in the stove, asking to be turned off. But
the man would just stay still, in trance, holding the cup and the tea bag in
hand but not moving at all, lost in thought.
One day, Viktor had decided to go for a walk. Sometimes,
staring at the sea cleared his thoughts a bit. But the salty scent of the water
didn’t seem to help at the moment. He returned to the apartment with his hopes
down, trying not to sulk as he opened the door, so that Yuuri didn’t feel even
worst at the sight. But as soon as he got in, the false solemnity of his face
broke into curiosity, as he saw a bunch of papers sprawled on top of the coffee
table, and his husband sitting on the sofa with his arms crossed.
“What’s this?” Viktor asked, warily, taking a
document into his hands.
His eyes widened, and he put down the paper to stare at
Yuuri in disbelief.
They were adoption papers.
“Are you serious?” He asked, his voice a thread.
Yuuri stood up coyly, with tears in his eyes, and in no
second Viktor was hugging him close, kissing him, and crying a little bit
The paperwork took weeks, but after signing many documents,
answering many questions, and buying many baby items online, Lori was finally
They talked to Yakov, and asked him if he could be Yuuri’s
coach whenever things got busy. Mari was glad to help, too, and took good care
of Lori when her parents were way too busy with competitions. Yuuko offered
some help as well as soon as she heard the news, being so happy for her friend
to finally experience the joy of parenthood, and willingly giving him a hand
whenever he needed.
Even Yurio was enamored by the baby girl, and sometimes he
held her and played with her when they took her to the practices.
And Viktor? Viktor was obsessed. Viktor would pamper his
daughter and rant about how he was PERSONALLY going to teach her how to skate
as soon as she could stand on her feet.
“We are the luckiest people in the world” He would
always say, watching his husband as he changed her diapers or lulled her to
sleep between his arms.
Because, from that moment on, Viktor had a new definition
for Life and Love.
Life and Love were ephemeral, volatile, and constantly
building themselves, changing, morphing, absorbing more and more meanings,
smells, eye colors and feelings.
Life and Love would always have different significances.
And, maybe, he may have found his third L.
Now I can’t take Lori out of my head…what did u do to me gurl. You just gave me a killing headcanon

still, arms crossed over her chest.
Lotte gets up from the desk and walks over to Sucy’s
bedside. She kneels next to her sleeping figure to admire every feature - every
color - making up the poison witch she has grown to adore so much.
So italics mean that you are talking Mind-to-Mind. It’s something that you can only do in dragon form.
There was an ancient legend, a
story as old as time, of a brave prince who slayed the dragon to save the
princess. This story is a little bit different than the one that you probably
know. This story is one about a dragon enslaved by princess in order to save
her family. Princess Leonora Draga, the only princess to ever capture one of
your kind. You were brought out to entertain her and her guests, forced to raze
villages in her name. You had no choice, you never did. You were forced to
obey, all because of the dark magic the bends you to her will. Your only hope
is that someone, someday will come and save you.
You let out a roar, your wings fluttering behind you. Your
little sister, bound, chained, and surrounded by knights lets out a little
whimper. Scrambling into your human form, you lunge forward.
“Please! Let her go!!”
Letting out a chuckle Princess Leonora and her knights step
forward, “And why would I do that? I’ve just caught a dragon; no way am I
giving it up”
You let out a sob, running your fingers through your hair,
“She’s just a hatchling! Please!”
Your sister lets out another pitiful cry as she strains
against the magic chains that keep her on the ground. “If I’m going to release
her, I’ll need something in return. Do you have anything to trade for your
The princess raised her eyebrows, “And why is your life
worth letting her free? One dragon is the same as any other”
You growl, “I-I can breathe fire. A hatchling can’t breathe fire;
she doesn’t have a human form either; she won’t be of any use to you!”
“I suppose you have a point, dragon. I will release her …
after you bind yourself to me” Stepping forward you bare your throat to the
Princess. She reaches into her saddlebag and pulls out a jewel encrusted
collar, “Now, once I place this on you, you will be bound to me. Your magic
will be bound to my commands, and your life to mine. You will not be able to
disobey me, and I will be the only one able to remove this collar”
With a shudder, you nod, a single tear slipping down your
face when the collar locks into place. You can feel your magic lock down, the
only thing that you still have control over is your fire and your dragon form,
everything else is gone. You can’t feel your family ties, and you can’t feel
the elemental magic that flows through every dragon.
“Will you let her go now?” The princess waves her hand and
the chains release your sister. She lets out a mournful roar, “Go back to mom
and dad. Tell them what happened. Remember that I love you all, but you need to
She lets out another cry, but backs away when the knights
raise their swords and spears. Leonora laughs at your tears, attaching an
enchanted chain to your collar and starts dragging you away. “Come along, my
dragon. It is time to start your training.”
That was three years ago. Three years since you had been
free, since you had felt your magic at its fullest.
Your large wings flutter and you raise your long neck,
placing it on the platform that Leonora is standing on. Being kept in the dark,
dank dungeon, the only way in is to fly. There are no stairs leading down to
where you sleep, only a set of stairs leading from the castle to the platform, the same one that
Leonora is currently standing on.
“It is Queen Leonora now. Mother has suffered an … untimely
… demise. Anyway, I have need of you. Guests are coming and wish to see my
“Of course. How should
I appear, human or dragon?”
“You will kneel by my feet as a human, and once they arrive
I will have you shift”
You close your eyes and suppress a shudder, the forced
transformations are always the most painful, but according to Leonora the pain
makes her appear more powerful.
“As you wish. May I
ask who I shall be entertaining?”
“You may. King Nicholas Fury and his Knights, The
“Interesting choice of
You let out a shriek as pain lances through you, Leonora
using the magic that binds you to her to hurt you.
“You will not speak out of turn when my guests arrive. The
Avengers and King Fury have not been to my kingdom in many years. You will not
ruin my chance to marry one of the Knights with your insolence.”
“Of course, Queen
Leonora. I wouldn’t dream of embarrassing you”
She sniffs, “I can hear the sarcasm in your voice. It would
do you well to remember what happened the last time you embarrassed me in front
of a guest.”
You duck your head, letting out a soft mournful whine,
laying your head down once again. “I’ll
be good. I promise”
“Good. I expect you to be ready by tomorrow at sunrise.”
Nodding you wait until Leonora leaves before bringing your
head back down to your nest. Hopefully tomorrow the Knights will be kind.
Hopefully the Knights will be kind, and whatever they need from Leonora doesn’t
upset her, you don’t know how much longer you can survive her wrath.
Kneeling beside the throne wasn’t the most comfortable thing
in the world, but it was infinitely better than being chained up as a dragon.
“Your Majesty, the guests have just arrived at the gate”
Leonora grins, her eyes taking on a feral glint. She was on
the hunt for a husband, and you had a feeling that she was going to try and
trap them. Whoever the Queen sunk her claws into would soon end up just as much
of a prisoner as you. You pity the poor soul.
Have a reply post. :D I think that’s all? And I hope I replied to everyone WITHIN the post. I end up doing replies in weird broken ways and there’ve been occasions where I’ve put the reply but haven’t actually said anything about it… >_>; xD
