Casual reminder to all my D.C. mutuals that there is a Mazel Tov cocktail at DGS Deli in Washington, D.C.  Also their brunch is delicious.

#23: “The skirt is supposed to be short.”

modern muggle au <3

“The skirt is supposed to be this short.” Lily says, indignant.

Marlene just sniggers. “I didn’t say anything.”

“Your eyebrows did.” Lily inspects herself in the mirror one more time and then turns to face her friend and housemate.

“You look great, can we go now?” Marlene asks, finishing off the bottle of wine in her hand in one take.

“Is she ready?” Mary pops her head around the door, looking hopeful. Lily frowns at both of them. “Aw, don’t be like that Lils, you’ve been an hour.”

“We’re prinking!”

“No, you’re primping.” Marlene just manages to dodge the cushion Lily throws at her.

“Fine then, let’s go.” Lily grabs her bag and pulls Marlene up from the bed.

“She’s ready!” Mary yells as they head downstairs, and the responding cheer from the kitchen makes Lily frown again.

Marlene slings a comforting arm around her shoulder. “We love you really.”

If this was a normal night, Lily would have been ready a long time ago. As it stands though, it’s a fancy dress night and she has a plan. So she accepts the teasing from her friends as they do one last shot and then leave, heading towards the pub, because she knows it will all be worth it.

Except it’s not, not immediately anyway. The first pub, their usual, is packed full of other uni students in fancy dress, all in varying degrees of effort. A pack of boys have stretched their student budget to buy banana outfits whilst, next to them, two girls are wearing black dresses with wooden placards around their next, informing Lily they’ve been arrested for public disturbance. Tegan scowls when she sees them, because she too has opted for the jailbird look but, unlike them, has gone full out.

Mary, barely a ladybug with a red dress and some wings, orders the first round. It helps Lily ignore the fact that the reason she’s wearing her ridiculous get up isn’t in the pub. It does not help her ignore the two leering freshers, Thing 1 and Thing 2, who are clearly making bets about which one of them can get her number. Leering was to be expected though and, like the teasing, Lily takes it because it will be worth it, no one’s got the guts up yet to actually approach her and because in an outfit like hers, she can’t say she wouldn’t stare either.

It had been Marlene’s idea, and Lily had agreed both because she was desperate and because she’d known she’d look good. And she does. The skirt, as short as humanely possible without showing her arse, and the heels, too high for her own good, make her legs look endless. It’s a look that could kill.

It’s also a look, apparently, which boosts her alcohol tolerance and self assurance. So, by the time they reach a club, despite the several rounds of shots and jaeger bombs, she manages to get passed the bouncers without stumbling once. They dance for what feels like hours, Lily spinning with Mary and Tegan and almost breaking her ankle when she drops to the floor during Low with Gemma. Marlene vanishes and returns with a boy, yelling to the girls that he’s got a party at his house.

They go and Lily has almost forgotten why she is wearing what she’s wearing. Then she steps into the boy’s living room and she remembers.

He’s dancing on the other side of the room, with Sirius, of course, and he looks beautiful. Maybe it’s the disco lighting. Maybe it’s the leather jacket he’s wearing. Maybe it’s the fact that she’s in love with him. Whatever it is, he’s never looked fitter and Lily almost runs out of the room before he can get a chance to see her.

Hi Pauline, I love your drabbles! Please write no. 29/Fluff and no. 79/Angst. I can't wait to read it!

You will get number 29 in a separate post, promise, this is 79.

“I don’t care what anyone else thinks.” 

It was Friday night, way past eight, when Robert came home. He had a long day at work, driving up to Leeds to meet a client that had been very difficult. He was tired, exhausted and all he wanted to do was curl up on the sofa with Aaron, maybe watch a movie or continue that show they had started.

When he turned the key, he could already hear the chatter and the laughter.

He walked into the living room and saw Aaron, Adam, Pete, David and that Matt guy. Music was playing, empty beer cans already on the table, showing that this has been going on for a bit.

“Robeeert,” Adam cheered when he spotted him.

Aaron turned around and greeted him with a big smile. “Hey,” he said.

“What’s this?” Robert asked.

“Oh, the pub is holding some weird birthday so we decided to move here,” Aaron said.

“Can I talk to you in the kitchen for a minute?” Robert asked and David whistled.

“Somebody is in trouble,” Matt sang with a high-pitched voice.

“Who are you again?” Robert snapped and Matt instantly shut up.

Aaron got up, not looking very pleased and followed Robert into the kitchen.

He kept his voice down, because well, kitchen and living room were not exactly separated.

“What’s going on?” he asked.

“You need to tell them to go,” Robert said.

“What? No,” Aaron said, shaking his head. “I invited them. I am not kicking them out, just because you are in one of your moods.”

“I am NOT in one of my moods,” Robert snapped, voice getting louder, “I just had a long day and would like to have my house to myself.”

“Oh, YOUR house, is it now?” Aaron asked back, clearly annoyed. “They are my friends, Robert, I am not just kicking them out!”

Adam started to tell a joke, clearly trying to take the attention away from Robert and Aaron.

“Either they go or I go,” Robert barked.

“Oh wow, what is this, 8th grade?” Aaron asked, shaking his head. “You are making a fool of yourself here, mate.”

“I am not your mate. And I don’t care what anyone else thinks! I don’t care about any of these people. But you clearly don’t care about me!” Robert said and by now it was impossible for the rest of them to not listen in.

“Oh yeah, this really is 8th grade,” Aaron said. “You know what? Why don’t you go then?”

“Fine, I will!” Robert snapped and stormed through the living room to the front door, banging it shut on his way out.

Aaron got back to the living room and everybody looked a bit abashed.

“Sorry, mate,” Matt said.

“Yeah, we can go if you want,” David said.

“Whatever,” Aaron said. “He’ll come back.”

“He always does, right?” Adam said with a grin.

“Yeah, what is it with you two?” Matt said. “I feel like I am missing a big story here.”

“Oh, Matt, my friend, grab a beer, lean back and let me tell you the great story of Aaron Dingle and Robert Sugden,” Adam announced with a grin.

It’s currently slated for June 29, 2018. Dean has delivered a script and production is starting - it takes a looooOOOOooong time to make an animated movie!

But to help tie you over, they are partnering with Dark Horse to make a graphic novel that picks up right where HTTYD2 left off - that comes next year!

“Yes?”

“This won’t happen again,” she tells him, and he feels a pang of something, disappointment, but she’s frowning now that she’s said it, like she regrets the words, or maybe that’s just him being hopeful.
