    Summary

    My personal take on international magic, as well as what will happen if the Nations themselves were involved in the events of Harry Potter - things take a less deadly and much more hilarious turn. This also covers some of the magical misadventures of the Nations. Warning: OCs, Translations, Ships, BL, pranks, hilarity, death, mild angst, etc. Originally posted on Fanfiction.Net, now also posted here.

    Summary

    prompt #47; "They are Gods, and she, the unbeliever." Charlie/Miles/Bass

     

    She walked between them, she was the glue that kept them sane, she was their hunger personified and they clung to her like the damned cling to an untouchable god. She stopped asking for permission, stopped asking for forgiveness, in her eyes they felt purified, forgiven, atoned. She lead them into a hell they had long ago forsaken and never apologized.
