  2. Summary

    When Harry finds Malfoy in his shower at Grimmauld Place, the two boys struggle to keep their hands to themselves, not realizing that their 'enemies-with-benefits' relationship will eventually become considerably darker and more powerful. That relationship will influence the search for the horcruxes--and the war--in unpredictable ways.

    Summary

    Claude looks back the way they’d come, then at Lorenz again, and tips his head back in despair. “You breathed it in, didn’t you.”

    “I take it this is poisonous.” Lorenz feels…well enough, mostly. His heart is beating faster, though that could just be apprehension; the air seems warmer than it had before. The scent of cloves is already fading. “Lethal?”

    Claude actually laughs, though without much amusement. “No. It’s, uh, it’s called…a bunch of things. Rose of Bassarid?”

    Lorenz shakes his head. It is more than just apprehension driving his pulse now, sending a feverish tingling through his veins. Of all horrible times—it must be the fear of whatever is to come that has his attention lingering on the column of Claude’s throat, half-hidden by his collar and a carelessly-tied neckcloth. He disciplines his attention, ruthlessly. This is not lethal, therefore he will endure it; since it is not lethal, he has no need for any final—whimsy.

    Summary

    When Bucky's libido shows back up, it's basically proof that his life is cursed.

    Like, obviously, hooray that his dick works again, it's been a long fuckin’ road (and a long road of no fucking, his brain helpfully adds) but—Jesus, fuck, Hydra really are just dedicated to making his life a misery in every possible way, even years down the track, because it turns out there's some operant conditioning Bucky did not know about until now.

    Specifically: he can't fuckin’ come unless someone's giving him the order.

    Summary

    If Sylvain had any idea what Felix thought they were doing, he’d probably say something like, Oh, it’s not just my ego I want stroked, because if he has to be completely honest with himself the thought of Felix’s deft swordsman’s hands anywhere on his skin is the kind of thought that pierces armor and melts steel. But he doesn’t. Felix might want the same quick moment of human connection that anyone else might want, or he might just be curious, and either way he’s probably looking for something easy. Goddess knows Sylvain is that.

    Summary

    Dimitri is in his office when Felix strides through the doors, eyes flashing. In his arms he is holding a pair of boots, and he throws a scrap of parchment onto Dimitri's desk. The note he'd sent with them: only a brief apology. He hadn't known what else to say.

    "Are you actually trying to tell me," Felix says, in a tone which suggests the apology had the opposite of its intended effect, "that you're sorry for the fucking boots?"

    Summary

    "I want to be sure that I understand your plan," Dimitri says after a moment. "You've given your Great-Aunt this, ah, misapprehension—"

    "If you knew her, you'd understand—"

    "And you'd like me to further deceive your aged relation by pretending to court you at the Ball."
