What Happens at Douchebag Pureblood ClubThe little gang of four treaded the streets of London together, dressed up casually as muggles so as not to draw unnecessary attention onto themselves. One was a tall blonde boy with a pale face and a phlegmatic expression, another a cheerful looking boy, the runt of the group, who occasionally took to snapping his suspenders and shooting glances at the others to see if they were watching him. The one he was watching in particular had dark shiny hair and a strangely ageless face; mainly attributed to his wild eyes, which were blue-green and so light, he looked blind. Finally there was another boy, his hair nearly as black as night, looking just as bored as the blonde one. Someone else was with them, hanging back from the group and eying them all carefully as if they'd all turn suddenly in unison and attack her, despite her being Richter's sister. The four were chatting casually about the greatest sport in the world, which may not be so great out in the open like this since muggles wereWhat Happens at Douchebag Pureblood Club3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Somewhere Alone In the BitternessCurtis stood quietly next to his little sister as they watched the dirt being shoveled into the two graves that sat next to each other. He'd only been out of school for a year and now he was an adult. His plans to continue his education were out the window, as now he was the legal guardian for his little sister Ceres. He knew he had his Aunt and Uncle that could take care of Ceres if he really did want to continue his education, but he felt responsible for her. He felt like he shouldn't abandon her, especially after all those long years of not even acknowledging her.Somewhere Alone In the Bitterness3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
On top of that stress he also had to make a visit to Theo. His cousin and his most favorite person in the whole world. Theo had gotten involved with a lot of dangerous things, and Curtis hadn't seen him in years except for a few times in passing when both were on opposite ends of the war. He'd heard that Theo had some mental disabilities now and was most likely to remain at St. Mungo's for treatment of some sort. Curtis wa
Escalate Charlie awoke in the hospital wing without really waking. Her mind whirred slowly, enveloped in a deep fog, and her body felt disconnected. She blinked trying to bat the fog away. It lifted slightly and she saw sunlight streaming into the room. Beds lined the opposite wall, many of whose occupants were obscured from view by other people. Was she visiting Baxter, Len, and Jake in the hospital wing again? That didn't make sense, they'd been released months ago. Charlie realized she wasn't entirely sure what month it was. Confusion combined with a sudden bout of nausea as she tried to sit up, and Charlie had to shut her eyes to keep herself from vomiting. Pain wracked her body, from the very top of her head, down all the way to her toes. Even the pain seemed distant, though. There was a hand pushing her gently into what felt like pillows.

"You have to get out of bed."
"No!" Charlie snapped stubbornly, burying her head under her pillow and pulling her duvet high over her shoulder. "I'm not going anywhere!"
Len sighed and seized hold of the pillow, trying desperately to pull it out of her vice-like grip. "Charlie. Charlie. You cannot hide in bed forever." Finally, he wrenched the pillow free from her clutches, holding it above his head so that she would have to actually, you know, move if she wanted to get it back.
She didn't. Charlie pulled the duvet over her head and curled up into a ball.
"Oh, for fuck's sake," Len groaned, thwacking the amorphous blob (and what he thought was her leg, but he wasn't totally sure) with the pillow. "Charlie. I have to go to work. Get up."
"Dejame en paz!" she growled, muffled by the blanket she was effectively trying to smother herself with, "You're wasting your breath."
By now, Len stopped thinking th

According to statistics, It was bound to happen eventually, given that Mike is slightly-better-than-average looking (okay, fine, he's a good-looking guy, but Len will stick to plausible deniability on that) with a not-quite-boring personality and at least half a brain and, hey, it's hard to find one of these qualities in someone, never mind all three, so yeah. Mike is kind of a catch, Len supposes. Kind of.
His name is Yannis and he was in their year at Hogwarts but Len cannot for the life of him remember he and Mike ever exchanging a single word to each other, which makes Len all the more suspicious of how this relationship came about because ugh, since when does Mike have a life outside of their shared household anyway? It's not like he has a workplace. He works from home. Besides, Yannis is an aspiring rock star and therefore completely not Mike's type (because Len totally knows what Mike's type is
