    Summary

    Laurent reaches for a notepad to write down the man's potion order, and glances around for a pen. He’d seen at least four lying on the counter before he’d opened this morning, but Nicaise’s Petunia chews through cheap ballpoints like catnip, and there’s nothing Laurent can do to stop her. He sighs in frustration, glancing up to apologize for the delay just in time to see the customer pull a pen from the empty space in front of him. He squints at it blearily, running a hand over the stubble on his jaw, before offering it to Laurent.
     
    Okay. Magic professor. Laurent can work with that.

     

    Or: Five times Laurent regrets owning a magical wares shop, and one time he really doesn't.

    Summary

    Damen stepped into the deserted hallways and slowly made his way towards Gryffindor tower. However a cold voice from a corner ahead of him stopped him short. Slowly he made his way towards the source of the noise. He peeked around the corner.
    Two Gryffindor third years were cowering in front of a blond fifth year Slytherin. Laurent de Vere, his former captain's little brother. He knew more than enough about him from Auguste praising him to the moon and back again. Though his reputation as an ice prince was the complete opposite of what Auguste had been saying about him.

    "What would your father say if he knew? A useless piece of filth," Laurent's words were vicious like poisonous barbs and one of the Gryffindors flinched.

    "Don't talk to him like that!" The other Gryffindor blustered but visibly shrank back when Laurent's icy gaze landed on him.

    "Or should I tell your brother what really happened to his toad? Faulty potion poisoning is after all quiet common." Laurent's eyes were like blue glaziers as his pretty lips spewed venom at the boys.

    Summary

    “We don’t have time for excursions,” Guren says. “Just let me drive, then I’ll go back to work and parties and you-“ he waves an insolent hand at Shinya, “-can go back to whatever it is you do.”

    “Whatever it is I do,” Shinya repeats. “Didn’t think you’d pine so much for the status-quo.”

    “I don’t pine for anything,” Guren says, then adds, “Fuck you,” for good measure when Shinya laughs.

    Summary

    “Guess now Dimitri can freak out about the coronation instead,” Sylvain says. Felix makes a vague noise, like he’s done with talking, but Sylvain’s in a chatty mood. The war is over and Felix hasn’t insulted him yet this morning. Obviously it’s a day for miracles. Might as well bring it up now. “Mm, maybe you can finally do something about the way you’re always looking at him.” Complex plans don’t really go well with Felix grinding down against him, and anyway: with Felix, it’s usually just best to be straightforward.

    Felix goes still above him. Sylvain slides a hand in his hair to try to pull him back down, but he won’t go. “Excuse me?”

    “Oh, is this going to be a whole thing?” Sylvain asks. “Are we going to pretend you haven’t been head over heels for the guy since we were all the same height?”
