Harry pulled down the sleeve of his -
well, Draco’s - sweater. It was chilly. But he wasn’t quite ready to go inside
yet. Teddy had been trying out his new broomstick for hours and Harry didn’t
have the heart to tell him to stop. Not when his eyes were so wide with
childish delight, not when he kept calling out: “Look daddy, look at
me!” with those big beautiful smiles.
Arms wrapped themselves around Harry
from behind and he sunk into the embrace, grateful for the warmth.
“You’re wearing my sweater,”
Draco chided, his breath warming Harry’s ear.
“And you’re wearing mine,”
Harry countered, eyeing the frayed, too-short red sleeves on Draco’s arms.
“Only because I couldn’t find mine.
I did have a suspicion…”
Harry leant his head back into Draco’s
neck and breathed in. “It smells like you.”
Draco looked down at Harry with
amusement. “I smell like me.”
“You were at work.”
“I’m here now.”
Harry breathed in again and closed his
eyes, relaxing in the comforting smell of his husband. “Yes, yes you
Despite the coldness of the evening
closing in, Harry would have been content to stay in those arms, right where
they were forever. But a startled scream from Teddy wrenched Harry’s eyes back
Draco acted quickly, detangled himself
from Harry and apparating to Teddy’s side where he had fallen in the dirt, while
Harry calmly walked the five metres.
“Teddy? Ted? Are you hurt?”
Draco’s voice was high pitched and panicked, like it always became at the
smallest injury. Harry
couldn’t give himself a papercut without getting the full healer treatment from
Draco. Not that he minded.
As Harry knew he would – the broomstick
was charmed only to hover not fly, and Teddy had already fallen off many times
- Teddy jumped up laughing, no damage but the dirt on his face. “Did you
see that, daddy?” He said to Draco excitedly. “Did you see? I did a wonky fete!”
Draco pulled Teddy into a tight hug and looked
back over his shoulder at Harry. “You taught a four-year-old the Wronski
Harry shrugged. “Ginny told him
about it last week.”
Draco turned back to Teddy. “Maybe
our Quidditch superstar is finished for the day, hey Ted? Are you hungry? Shall
we head in for dinner?"
Teddy crossed his arms. "As long as it’s not soup.” He
screwed up in his face in distaste. He hated all things mushy.
Harry laughed, ignoring a sharp look
from Draco – soup was his speciality, his only speciality. “Don’t worry,
Teddy, I’m cooking tonight. Daddy Draco’s tired from work.”
Draco stood up and turned to Harry. “I’m
not tired. I can cook,” he said stubbornly.
Teddy made a sour retching face at Harry
behind Draco’s back. Harry couldn’t help but stick his tongue out in response.
Of course Draco noticed that and
swiveled back around. Teddy quickly changed his face to an innocent smile but
he was too late. Draco had caught him.
“Now you’ve done it,” Harry
Teddy screamed in glee and ran while
Draco chased him around the yard, slowing his pace to allow Teddy to evade his
clutches a few times until: “Gotcha!”
Harry watched fondly as Draco pulled a
giggling Teddy into a tight embrace, peppering raspberries all over his face.
At first Harry had been surprised how affectionate and loving Draco was, both
to him and to Teddy, but the more time he spent with Draco, the more he
realised it made perfect sense.
Now, three years later, Draco was his
husband, and another father to Teddy. And Harry was absolutely and completely
in love with him.
Harry found his way over to Draco and
Teddy - by walking, not apparating - and joined in on the hug. And because
his heart was overflowing with the words: “I love you both.”
- “wait I thought these shoes were black”
- “Is daehyun flirting with someone? wow good thing I can’t see”
-“oh lord the girl I kidnapped better be his girlfriend”
- “Invisible ink was a bad idea but then again I’d probably not be able to see what I write anyway”
-“why the fuck did I call him to a dark alley”
-“okay is the gun on his head? I’ll just linger a little longer than I have to to make sure”
-“I hope he appreciates the photos. All pics are poor lighting pics for me”
-“Are those teddy bears on Yongguk’s sweater”
-“Me? And reading a book? if Daehyun was smart enough he’d have figured it out”

-“how close am I to Himchan’s face”
-“WAIT I WAS SUPPOSED TO HOLD THE HANDLE OF THE KNIFE NOT THE BLADE THIS HURTS”

-“gosh I hope they think my staggering is dramatic effect”
-“Daehyun’s still alive? Well I gotta kneel down I really can’t see”
-“oKAY THIS TIME I’ll just use his own hand to guide the gun”
-“fuck where’s the trigger let me just smile at him”
-“Jongup, you’re cool, play it cool, don’t trip over a body”
-“where the hell are these buttons I need to show off my bulletproof jacket do you understand how long it took me to wear it”
i don’t know what this is guys, but you can blame @roses-for-jongup for inspiring me and @zeloswaffles for furthering my thoughts. bless.
Bones acts like he hates getting and giving gifts but he is the most understatedly thoughtful gift giver like if you mention a book even just once in passing he’ll go through hell to get it for you. He gets super embarrassed at gifts so he prefers just being given liquor or something like a picture of the two of you
He will give you something from Russia. No doubt. But it means a lot to him and it’s always hand selected that it’ll mean something to you as well. He writes cute little notes explaining the significance and the history of the item
He likes getting cheesy personalized gifts like mix cds or hand drawn cards
He’s such a generic gift giver honestly. It’s not that he doesn’t put thought into it, he does and you always love his gifts, but he’s not good at personalizing it really
He likes to get gifts he knows he’ll use and he’s always excited to use anything you give him in front of you and he’ll put on this big cheesy display of how excited he is to put your gifts to use
Oh she’s the best. She knows how to give the gifts that even if you don’t think you’ll love at first, you end up using every day of your life and you’re so thankful
She likes to get gifts that are similar to that. She likes to use things you gave her publicly and she’s so proud to tell people you got things for her
Scotty loves handmade gifts! Even if it’s sloppy he’ll love anything that he knows you put time and effort into
He loves to give things that are meaningful, even if not practical. He’s be the one to give you big teddy bears and itchy sweaters made from love
Honestly he’s the worlds worst gift giver. He’ll get you something he would logically think you’d want, but honestly you’d probably already have it. He makes up for it by being with you on special occasions and showing you a lot of attention
He appreciates any gift you get him, but he really likes the ones that are personalized and practical at the same time
Get him more plants to take care of. Not even kidding add to his collection he will love it
He will get you something useful and pertaining to your hobbies or something handmade but practical
Request anything you’d like to see! My ask box is open!
I’ve got this headcanon: we can all agree that Kingsley is one of the best ministers of magic the wizarding community has ever seen, but well even he can’t stay forever.
So after Kingsley retired, beloved and remembered for sorting things out after the second wizarding war, Percy finally becomes Minister of magic. At first he’s quite surprised because he had already given up on that dream, content with his life and work at the ministry, but then he is very happy and feels honoured
And Mrs Weasley is so proud ov her son that she throws a big party inviting the whole family and old friend from the order and knitting a sweater for Percy with the letters “MM” on them and makes him wear it and he turns so red, but is also very proud
And Arthur will always try to very subtly influence the muggle artefacts laws and George and Ron will create little figure that say some of the things Percy used to tell them as a prefect for people to buy at Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes
And all the children like James and Lily and Fred etc. will tell all their classmates that the minister of magic is their uncle and Teddy Lupin will wear his hair red like he does sometimes, because he is already so integrated in the family that he considers Percy his uncle as well
And Percy will be so touched and make a great minister and go tell Fred’s portrait himself which will laugh at him and tell him “that the stuck up idiot finally did it”
And Percy will be a fucking brillant minister, supporting SPEW which makes Hermione very happy, but he will also be rather in control which gets Harry a slight bit annoyed in the auror office sometimes if Percy reminds him to hand in he reports in time
And Rita Skeeter will write a huge article for the daily prophet
Percy Weasley’s dream coming true and he’s fucking awesome at it
