pairing: hermione granger x draco malfoy

setting: modern, non-magical, single parent au

written for@brightki [merry early xmas!!!!! i love you etc

It’s corporate tax season, so it takes Hermione a couple of days to notice that something has gone terribly wrong.

“Max,” she says slowly, staring at the crayon-smeared drawing stuck to the front of the refrigerator. It’s new. The drawing, not the refrigerator. The refrigerator has a ten-year manufacturer’s warranty. The refrigerator is not the problem. “Max, what is…where did you…is that a hockey stick?

Max pokes at a tepid strip of grilled chicken with the blunted tines of his baby blue spork. His nose is scrunched up in disgust, and he keeps glancing at the cookie jar on the counter with transparently calculated longing.

“Yes,” he finally says, swinging his legs. “We played with Scorpion’s daddy.”

“Scorpius,” Hermione automatically corrects, even as she inwardly sneers. Scorpius. Honestly. Why not just tack on an –aiden at the end and be done with it? “You played with Scorpius’s daddy.” She blinks. “Wait. What?”

Max shrugs. “I shot a fuck.”

Puck,” Hermione bleats, dropping her spoon into her own bowl of meticulously fluffed quinoa. “You shot a puck, sweetheart.”

“Puck,” Max repeats dutifully, leaning forward to slurp at his chocolate milk. “I love hockey.”

“What? Since when?

“Scorpion’s daddy plays hockey on TV.”

“I…yes, I know,” Hermione says, dumbfounded and more than a little appalled. “Believe me, sweetheart, everyone knows. Did he—so, he came to your school? To play…hockey?”

“My stick was red,” Max replies sagely. “I love red.”

Hermione’s nostrils flare as she reaches for her wine glass. “Oh, yeah?” She swallows an enormous gulp of Chardonnay and furiously tries to remember the name of the Netflix documentary about concussion rates in youth contact sports. “And what color was your helmet? Was that red, too?”

Max sniffs and puffs his cheeks out, flipping a carrot medallion around and around the edge of his plate. His eyes are big and brown and utterly without mercy as he twists in his chair to look expectantly at the cookie jar.  

“Mommy, what’s a helmet?”

I JUST REALIZED while rambling about what I want Steve to be doing between Civil War and Infinity War

(reclaiming his autonomy over his body, including growing a beard. reclaiming his autonomy over his beliefs and convictions. standing up for marginalized groups by attending protests and rallies and metaphorically punching the trump administration in the face [maybe literally too]. and just being the epitome of Steve Rogers ‘fight me’ and recklessness in doing the right thing + embracing who he is post-Cap. 

AND relearning how to have fun, and relax. etc)







and it struck me while I was thinking about it in the context of someone having a conversation with Steve about him questioning his sexuality that based on what the public was told Steve leaving the Avengers BECAUSE of Bucky might be a very, very obvious conclusion for people to make.

tl;dr common perception post Civil War is probably leaning towards Captain America being gay as fuck betraying America for TWS leaving the Avengers for Bucky.

A joke inevitably in every modern sitcom
  • Curmudgeonly older main character: Hello, would you like some coffee?
  • Millenial: (on phone, texting and/or taking a selfie) Yea, I'll have a mocha half-caf soy tie-dye frappalappadapacino.
  • Curmudgeonly older main character: I said COFFEE, damnit!
  • (canned laughter, uproarious applause)

Starbucks… Such an interesting experience. […] It’s weird, I think what happened was, because of traveling so much, I would always- Maybe that is the good thing about it. Sometimes it’s nice to see something you recognize in a very obscure, different place. And you go, ‘Oh, right, I know that! At least I know that.’ That’s why I go there all the time. Iced coffee.

Not sure if you really like the name you’ve chosen for yourself?

Use it when the barista at Starbucks asks for your name.

This is what I recommend to any trans*/nb person (or just anyone who wants to change their name).

The biggest problem for me when changing my name was it felt like I was betraying my parents. It felt wrong at first, because my parents had chosen my other name, and now here I was replacing it. Of course, a few friends of mine used my new name, but it just felt like a nickname.

So one day I gave the name Ashton to the barista. I was with some friends who don’t know about my gender identity, so I got a weird look, but it didn’t even come up in conversation later. That was the first huge sigh of relief. The second came when the barista called out my drink. I got up and took it like usual, but then I stopped. It didn’t even cross my mind that that wasn’t the name I was used to hearing. It just felt natural.

So if you’re unsure about your preferred name, treat yourself to some Starbucks.

(NOTE: This can apply to anyone who wants to change their name, they don’t have to be a member of the LGBTQA+ community)

  • McGonagall: Now explain to me why you were 15 minutes late to class for the 5th time this month?
  • Ravenclaw: Well, Headmistress, I had to get some Starbucks.
  • McGonagall: You mean to tell me you were late to class so you could get a muggle coffee?
  • Ravenclaw: Yes
  • Ravenclaw: I had to show up 15 minutes late with Starbucks

anonymous asked:

What if James thought he was doodling on a scrap piece of paper and not the exam itself until a day later when he realizes and he's like OH MY GOD THE MINISTRY KNOWS I FANCY EVANS

“Merlin Prongs, calm down,” grumbles Sirius, trying to get him to shut up so that he could read his magazine in peace. Meanwhile James looks to be two seconds from tearing out his hair, wearing a hole in the floor with his pacing.

Calm down?” he says shrilly, voice cracking, “How do you expect me to calm down when I basically wrote ‘Mrs Lily Potter’ across my OWL papers?”

“I thought you’d be taking her name.”


With an overly dramatic huff, Sirius throws his magazine off to the side, swinging his feet over the edge of the bed. Taking him by the shoulders he says, “Would you relax; you’re acting like it’s some huge shock for people to know that you fancy Evans.”

“Because it is,” James insists, slumping forward. “No one was supposed to know until I made a move.”

Sirius just stares at him for a moment, trying to discern whether or not he was joking. Finally, he says, “Mate, I don’t think there’s anyone out there who doesn’t know that you’re halfway in love with Lily Evans. Babies probably know and they don’t even have object permanence.”

He pouts sullenly, crossing his arms. “Evans doesn’t know.”

“You literally just asked her out in front of the whole school,” he tells him, eyebrows rising higher. “Seriously. Like half an ago. Snivellous called her that wretched word and she’s probably coming up with ways to chop off your balls and feed it to the giant squid. Have you been confounded?”

James suddenly goes very quiet and very pale, his eyes widening comically behind his glasses. He stumbles backward into Peter’s bed, wiping a hand down his face and knocking his glasses askew.

“Oh Merlin,” he whimpers, his voice barely above a whisper, “I just asked out Lily Evans.”

Sirius just groans, flopping back onto his bed and seriously contemplating sending a strong silencio his best mate’s way.

“And from among the men shall rise, the protector of the last elven lord.”
