    Summary

    “I could be like Tracy Turnblad,” Peter says thoughtfully, “from Hairspray.”

    Hairspray?” Mr. Stark’s face twitches like he’s trying really hard to hold in a sneeze. Or maybe a deluge of sarcastic comments. “I thought you were studying really old—” Mr. Stark makes little air quotes with his index and middle fingers “— sci-fi movies to maintain your precocious teenage-vigilante aesthetic. What, you diversifying into old rom-com musicals now, Pete?”

    Hairspray isn’t that old, Mr. Stark,” Peter says, “I mean, Zefron was in it.”

    “Zef— You mean Zac Efron? Kid, that’s—,” Mr. Stark shakes his head, lifts his hands as if he can ward off Peter’s words with his palms, stands up, and makes to leave the lounge. “You— Alright, movie night’s over. Get out of my house.”

    Peter has a twenty-three step plan to reunite the Avengers. This plan is brought to you by the 2007 musical movie Hairspray.

    Nobody’s gonna come to Peter’s vigilante potluck if they all know the truth about him being really lame.

    Summary

    Peter puts a hand on Tony’s shoulder and leans in close, his expression wide-eyed and solemn. “Can you keep a secret?”

    “Honestly?” Tony makes a face. “No, I can’t. I really struggle with impulse control and running my mouth when I shouldn’t.”

    “Yes—are you gonna repeat everything I say in question form?” Tony says, buckling his seatbelt and rubbing his hands together in anticipation. “The queen’s arrival is imminent, and we are the gilded chariot. Let’s go, go, go. Posthaste. She’s waiting.”

    Summary

    Their best isn't perfect.

    “Are you trying to get killed, Potter?” Malfoy drawls, stalking forward. Quick as a serpent himself, he reaches out and grabs the snake just below the head. It thrashes in his grip, but is no longer able to bite anyone. “This is a poisonous snake, and I doubt anyone brought a bezoar with them.”

    Harry glares. He opens his mouth, and feels the beginning the snake’s language pass his lips, and this isn’t what he wants, what’s the point of insulting Malfoy if he can’t understand him –

    Malfoy’s eyes widen. He slaps his hand over Harry’s mouth, “Potter, what the hell–”

    "She says, “You have kindness down to your bones, Harry Potter.”

    He blinks, taken aback. “What?” Then, “Kindness doesn’t win wars.”

    “Kindness does not win battles,” she says, “It has never lost a war.”"

    Summary

    Draco opens the box. Inside are six tiny leather boots. Stanley-sized boots.

    “Am I going completely mad, or are these snow boots for my beetle?” he asks cautiously.

    Summary

    Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.

    When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It’s easier to think it’s not a date when he goes to his bedroom on Saturday night to get ready, and finds Malfoy already in there, doing up his shoelaces. Malfoy’s his room-mate, and they’re just friends – well, sort of. Friends who stare at each other a lot, and one of whom has a massive tattoo of the other’s name around his throat. That sort of friends.
