Happy Birthday, LostAngelSoul!

Happy birthday, lostangelsoul3! 🌈🎂🎁🎉🎊🍰🎈 I hope it's a good one. ❤️ There's a Drarry in the works for you, unfortunately it comes a little latter in the story arc I'm writing (actually, technically earlier, bygones) and I was unable to make the jump between the two stories. But! The plot is laid out and it *will* happen in time. I hope you can forgive the delay? In its stead, however, I offer a picture of my stonking great alliums and the two fine young men in question:

"Damnable Whiz-bangs," Draco mutters, manoeuvring his broom with some skill around the latest burst.

"I think that's 'fireworks'," Harry corrects as he catches up to him, a wandless Protego protecting them both from the latest barrage, and potentially still legal on the pitch. Not, mind, that the explosions were precisely regulation, clearly not, but he does make an effort to abide by at least these rules if none others. It was marked enough a characteristic that Snape had commented on it.

"Most definitely not. They're Globemaster if anything. Have you never paid attention in Herbology, Potter?" Draco scoffs and then with a smirk adds, "Of course not. What was I thinking?" As if the universe were exacting its revenge for that bit of snark, he immediately has to duck under the latest explosion, too close to his head for comfort. Briefly he wonders if that will leave his hair singed. Not to be outdone by the Moggie, anything but that, he wandlessly Depulsos the next burst out of Potter's way.

"Thanks," Harry says, annoying the Slytherin further. It's as if he lives to show up Draco's inadequacies. He resolves to at least consider expressing his gratitude moving forward. Well, briefly. Blast and blast again. The rival Seeker is nothing if not irksome. Except for possibly too close. Draco tries to put on some speed and pull ahead, dividing his attention between scanning the sky for the Snitch as well as more of the Whiz-bangs.

It doesn't escape Harry's notice that no one seems to be calling the egregious fouls. This isn't the first time the difference in the way they're treated has registered, not even in this match alone. If this is what the (ir)responsible parties are willing to risk out in the open in front of the entire school, he imagines there's been a good deal more of the abuse when no one else was around to see it, too. All in all it's a wonder Draco is back to sniping at him, he thinks with a small smile. At the beginning of term, they'd barely been able to coax a few words out of him.

It also doesn't escape Harry that the Whiz-bangs tend to stop whenever he draws closer, just like the assorted Hexes and Jinxes. Lips drawn tight in anger at the thought of Malfoy's unfair treatment, he leans forward to pull closer again. With a bit of luck, the blond might survive the match uninjured yet...


Ooodles of love and many happy returns of the day. 😊

"happy christmas, severus 1 / 2" (LJ / DW) Christmas 1998. After a perfectly lovely snog, Hermione invites herself round to Severus'. Now he just needs to figure out what to do with her. She's happy to supply him with suggestions.

"happy christmas, severus 2 / 2" (LJ / DW) Christmas 1998. Hermione sleeps with Severus after all... (Seriously??? Probably not. 😆)

They're part of the christmas spirit AU. I hope I got them about right. I don't know what I'd do without you, sweetie. Thanks for being you. ❤️

And just a little bit of silliness that I spent way too long on... (mywitch, so I don't embarrass myself completely, you aren't allowed to look. *nods* Also this is what happens when you use 20 year old software, just saying. I'm frankly kind of impressed it still worked at all, tbh.)Collapse )

Arrrrrr, Me Mateys!

Once again, another Talk Like a Pirate Day has rolled around...



"'Just go for a nice punt on the river,' she says..." Clang. Slash. "'A boat ride and a spot of torte'..." Whack. Splash. Clink.

"Well you asked me what I wanted to do..." Grunt. "And it is my birthday after all... Wingardium Leviosa!"

"Not the Victoria Sponge!"

Laugh. "Who was the one craving a 'spot of torte'? Fine. Mobilicorpus!" Howl.

"Avast ye..."

"Levicorpus!" Yowl. "Witch, I swear it's the same every year. It's as though the day were cursed..."

"Oh, cheers. Thanks for that."

"You know exactly what I mean." Wail. "If you insist upon aquatic activities, we shall confine ourselves to the Black Lake in the future and perhaps the scurvied scoundrels can be..." Hack. Slash. Groan.

"Circumvented? You were the one who said it was getting nippy. 'Portkey to parts warmer,' sound familiar?"

"Yes, well if I should make that mistake again, be so good as to remind of the purpose of Warming Charms, would you?"

"As you wish, Severus, as you wish. But failing that, we could always huddle together for warmth."

"Hmm. Indeed." Thwack. Splash. Moan. "There's nothing quite like a woman who thinks on her feet."


🎈Happy Birthday, Hermione! 🍾🥂🎂🍰🎁🎉
