    Summary

    “It’s interesting, really.”

    Lucien’s voice, as quiet as it is, is clearly audible to you over the scattered applause from where you both linger in the wings, waiting to re-emerge and close out the show. Onstage, the actors take their last bows amidst the cheers, their characters resurrected for one final moment of glory before the curtain falls.

    You pause in your clapping to cast him a sidelong look.

    “What is?”

    “Why King Lear, of all plays?”

    Summary

    Crowley didn’t actually think it was at all funny, this feeling inside, though he was indeed sitting on the roof.

    He’d never dreamed of kicking off the moss, though. It was pretty, moss was. All soft and green and fluffy-looking. In fact, rather than kicking it away, Crowley found his constantly twitching Hell-fingers petting over the lush, emerald stuff. His other hand closed sweatily around the neck of a bottle of cab sav, not even something nice or fancy. Honestly, he’d just grabbed it at a corner store on his way to the roof. When he was alone, after all, Crowley didn’t always feel he deserved the nicest stuff. He just wanted to get there fast, you know?

    Crowley sits on the roof and wishes on a shooting star.

    Summary

    Draco's always been drawn to Hermione in some way, he has for years and can't explain. It'd be easier if he could just get a moment alone with her to see why, but she's never alone!
    At the Yule Ball, Draco finally has a moment with Hermione and they share that time coming to a "truce". A battle of brains starts between the two as they form a friendly rivalry to excel in their classes. What started as a "make Weasley jealous" game becomes something more, quickly, and with far reaching consequences.
    With Harry's Triwizard Tournament taking much of the spotlight, and Hermione acting strangely with Malfoy, Ron's jealousy starts manifesting in ugly ways, until it causes a break in school tradition so shocking that people will speak of it for ages to come.

    A story where Draco finds his redemption at the pivotal moment, deciding that helping keep Harry alive to prevent the resurrection of Voldemort is more important than bitter school rivalries.
