I’ve got drunk Drarry on my brain, and I don’t quite know what to do with it.
Here’s what I’m thinking: Draco has seen Harry drunk twice in his life. Once, during fifth year, in the midst of the Ministry’s play for Hogwarts. The second time, it’s at The Leaky Cauldron a year after Voldemort’s finally gone forever.
They start coming across each other more and more frequently, usually out, almost always at a pub of some sort or another.
Apparently the Weasley and Blaise are subscribed to the same gastro mag that publishes weekly articles on the best wizarding pubs and clubs (he keeps it to himself, because while the thought of watching Blaise blowing his top off over having any similarities with Weasley is hilarious, he’s saving it for when he really needs it).
They keep running into each other, and despite them being in a house of alcohol–despite watching Potter sling back lager after lager–he has yet to see him drunk outside of those two events. Draco doesn’t get it. Does Potter have some sort of Drunk Me Not spell in his arsenal? Is he impervious to the effects of ethanol? Is his tolerance level so high that he can outdrink even Hagrid?
Once, Draco tries to match his drink with Potter’s all night, and when he stands up to head to the bog, the world sloshes around him and his head is light and spinning, and his legs don’t seem quite as sturdy as he would like them to be. He’s well and truly drunk, but Potter doesn’t even look affected, and that’s unacceptable. Instead of going to the lavatory, his legs take him straight up to Potter, where he very drunkenly and mostly incoherently accuses him of being a cheat, and warns him that he’ll learn his secret if it’s the last thing he does, and promptly vomits all over Potter’s shirt.
Harry sighs, and tells the bar Draco’s done, and that he’s making sure he gets home safe. Ron, already three sheets to the wind, mutters some very explicit things about that not being all Harry wants to do.
Of course, Harry has no idea where Draco’s living these days, and as Draco is of exactly no help in this department (he presses his face against Harry’s neck and passes out like the uncooperative bugger he is), Harry makes an executive decision and ends up taking him home with the intention of forcing a glass of water down his throat and putting him to bed.
He would, if Draco wasn’t some kind of constrictor and refused to let Harry go when he tries to tuck him under the sheets and fuck off to his own room and shower. So. This is the grand lead-up to Draco prying his eyelids apart the next morning, face smooshed against, to his growing horror, Harry’s very naked chest.
It’s not like he can even blame Potter for being the secret cuddler and accosting him, because it’s very, very apparent that Draco is the one to have rolled Harry over to the very precipice of the bed where Potter wouldn’t have been able to escape him except to topple over the side, and somehow, wormed himself into Potter’s embrace.
He doesn’t even get the dignity of trying to extract himself stealthily, because Potter’s blinking blearily down at him, cocking an eyebrow as if to say “your move, mate”.
Except, he doesn’t say that. What does say is, “So, you said want to find out my secret.”
As Draco recalls, yes, he did say that, and groans in embarrassment at himself. Christ, it’s like fifth year all over again. All he can do is try to save face, so he says, “It was all part of the plan, you see. I’ve got you exactly where I want you”, and prays to whatever beings that be that Harry can’t see through the flimsy excuse.
This is, of course, barmy, and Potter’s eyebrow inches higher. Then, he’s craning his neck so his mouth is alongside Draco’s ear, and he says right into the shell of it, “And what if I’ve got you right where I want you?”
And Draco… well. Draco doesn’t quite know what to do about that, but he’s got some idea where to start.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss you, I’d be fibbing if I said I didn’t want your touch. I catch your eyes sometimes on me and I remember the rush. I loved how you changed my world, it was so fast paced and upbeat. It made society uncomfortable. Our world hurling itself into our flames. We left destruction in our paths and when we held hands the world caught flame. We were a burning hot mess of feelings, anxiety, depression and anger. But our passion was glorious. And I’m not sure if I’ll ever get a love that intense ever again. And don’t you dare walk out of my life and not notice the third degree burns on my heart. Our world was destined to fall apart.
As soon as I laid my eyes on you I knew I was a fire no one could extinguish. But you were my gasoline and, God did we feed off each other.
But now that you’re gone my world is a stop motion. Stopping and going when it pleases. But I’m so used to the next, that the now is unbearable. But I swear, I’d rather spend eternity in this now, the now where my heart is no longer a burning flame, but a cool breeze everyone finds lovely. And maybe it’s a little colder than I’m used to, but everything has changed. I can’t keep torturing myself waking up and screaming your name, I can’t keep giving myself false hope that you’ll look my way and our world will snap back into orbit. That’s not how this works. That’s not how this is supposed to be. Trust me honey I love(d) you. And I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to again. But I look at my stop motion world and accept my now, because it’s all I’ll ever have to look forward to. And I’ll pick now any day, over when we were then.
Summary: You’re caught in a time loop during the 11 days leading up to the RFA’s party unless you can do… what, exactly?
13+ Recommended you’ve played at least one of Zen’s, Yoosung’s, or Seven’s routes.
Ping. Behind you
on the bed, your phone lights up with a new notification. Dammit. You can’t
read it from here, but you know it’s about 1:30 in the morning. The
notification will be from Yoosung, spouting nonsense again about how he,
Jaehee, and Zen are robots programmed and brainwashed by Seven and V. So this
is it, then. All your efforts to remain friendly but emotionally distant
with Zen are ultimately worthless. You knew it as soon as the 12:30am chatroom
hadn’t shown up as it did when you spoke to Zen and reached the eleventh day,
but had still held out some small hope that maybe you were wrong…
will be at your door in a few hours, then. Time to get ready for the reset.
This Arabic workbook you’ve been studying from isn’t that great; you should get
a different one next time. There’s no need to buy the TOEIC practice books over
again… but you should probably get that English-to-Arabic dictionary again on
the next loop. It’s been helping you keep up with your English while you study
Right I said I would go into some details so here we are.
There is such a thing as crystal twinning, which is where crystals form into different sections instead of following the strict patterns there meant to (or that’s how I read it as anyway). So in this AU I played with that (and then rambled at @cirilee of course who has now helped make this into what will be a mammoth undertaking I feel) and thought it would be interesting for it be something that has never been heard of on homeworld/wasn’t ever meant to be something that ever happened.
And then it does.
So both Stans form in one hole in a kindergarten where they are later found. Ford (Pure Quartz) was the gem that was meant to manifest in that hole only both him and Stan (Smoky Quartz) were created. There’ll be more on that/what happens to them at that point in the kindergarten later on. But the point is they both form.
The forming/twinning causes slight defects on both of their gems when they break apart. Like one edge of their gems fits perfectly together with the others gem so its a rough almost matt surface at that contact point. It’s also caused other defects -
Ford - His 6 fingers. He is also meant to be a reseach/scientist gem (such as Peridot) and therefore is meant to be fairly short. Both he and Stan are a middling height so he towers/intimidates the gems he’s meant to work with.
Stan - For one is a smoky quartz, he should have been a pure quartz. Again he’s the same height as Ford which means he is smaller than the ‘warrior’ gems like Jasper that he should stand shoulder to shoulder with.
So both of them are treated as defective gems on homeworld but they both have their uses and are kept around. Ford is more respected - he was the gem that they were going for. Stan becomes his bodyguard.
On to their gem properties (because I’m a nerd and I did far too much research, yay 8D) I’m just going to post almost word for word from site and post links.
Pure Quartz - ‘ It is beneficial for storing and retrieving information of all types, as information is a form of energy pattern also. It can be used to purify and clarify on the spiritual, mental, and physical planes. It is powerfully protective because of these properties. Quartz enhances spiritual growth, spirituality and wisdom. Because it clarifies thought processes and emotions, it can increase inspiration and creativity. It can also help particularly with concentration, studying, and retaining what one learns. Quartz is a stone that can access ancient wisdom and bring it into the present. It is a very good stone for astral travel, manifestation, scrying, channeling, dream recall and dream work.’ < some of that will come into play later, I’ll be staying quiet on how until later, sorry ♥ But I like that it’s focused on intellect and creativity.
Smoky Quartz - ‘Smoky quartz is a very protective and grounding stone. It brings physical and psychic protection. It is also an excellent stone for protection from negative energy, as it removes negativity and negative energy of any kind and transforms them to positive energy. It enhances survival instincts, and can help one reach personal and business goals. It is also used in assisting in making wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. It fosters cooperation in groups and supports their efforts energetically. It is a helpful stone for enhancing and encouraging courage and inner strength. In the psychic and spiritual realms, smoky quartz centers one during meditation, and can provide a grounded link between the physical and higher selves, helping to uncover subconscious wisdom. Physically, smoky quartz has been used in crystal healing.’ < Same again, things in that may come into play later so I’ll stay quiet for now. I think it fits though, what with him charming people etc.
I might have forgotten some things but I’ll make more posts later as we go I think.
so yeah i’ve not kept up with posting all the rest of my perlers but i made about a million Undertale perlers over the past couple months and i thought that was Pretty Important (don’t mind the unrelated mario squids)
