    Summary

    He grits his teeth. "How the fuck did the basilisk not poison you?"

    "It did, actually," Harry says.

    Sirius stares.

    "Well, not for long," Harry says. "Clearly, it didn't last."

    Sirius makes a distressed noise. "What's next? Was Voldemort there too? Watching with popcorn?"

    Harry brightens slightly, and Sirius already regrets asking.

    (or, sirius finds out about all of the insane, illegal shit harry got into while he was in azkaban. needless to say, he is not pleased)

    Summary

    Based on Terry Pratchett's quote:

     

    "Well, ---- me," he said. "A ----ing wizard. I hate ----ing wizards!"

     

    "You shouldn't ---- them, then," muttered one of his henchmen, effortlessly pronouncing a row of dashes.

     

    Or:

    Arthur and Gwaine drunkenly come to terms with Merlin having magic.

    Summary

    "Did you bring me flowers, Merlin?"

    "Uh, no?”

    Arthur gestured to a spot on the table behind him. “What’s that, then?”

    Merlin slowly twisted around to see what he was pointing at, dread curling in his gut. Primly placed on the tabletop was a bouquet of red roses.

    “Er, someone else must have left them there. I have no idea where they came from,” Merlin lied awkwardly.

    As if on cue, a rose fell out of his jacket pocket and Merlin's stomach dropped a thousand feet beneath the ground.

    OR

    It's Yuletide, the newly appointed Court Sorcerer of Camelot is pining and his magic decides to do something about it.
