I See Fire (OS, 12k)

There was one simple and unique rule about being friends with Magnus and Alec: never, ever, no matter the circumstances, not even if you were drunk as an armada of skunks, engage into a debate about pop culture with either of them, and especially not the both of them.

The dungeon was in the most secluded part of the castle, all the way down the main tower.

I ended up doing more than 10 because it was fun.

I, for one, like to start with some dialogue. Also, I’m a bit of a drama queen.
