    Summary

    “He looks too young to be taking his *own class*,” Costis continued. “He’s the worst Defense Against the Dark Arts professor we’ve ever had. And that's saying something.”

    “You’re mad for him, aren’t you,” Aris teased. “It’s ‘Queen’ Attolia all over again… calf-eyes and mooning and swearing fealty…”

    Costis felt his ears go scarlet.

    “I do *not* have a crush on the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher,” Costis insisted.

    “Happy to hear it,” Professor Saccularius sang out. “As I understand it, those can be very awkward, for both parties. I’ll expect those scrolls on my desk first thing on Wednesday!” And he breezed past them as if he couldn’t tell that Costis was choking on his own tongue.

    *

    Or: the one where Costis is exceedingly suspicious of the new DADA professor.

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin

    Summary

    Costis shudders, finally dragging his eyes away from the little pile at the edge of the bed—stockings and panties, black sheer silk and red lace that Irene had paid for, blank-faced, and Gen had carried out of the store, grinning.

    They’d presented it to Costis as soon as he came home, and he stared, wide-eyed and wanting, like he’d forgotten he mentioned it the previous week when they’d all been a little drunk on wine and each other. He may have forgotten, but neither Irene nor Gen had.

    Summary

    sorting the characters in my favorite series and giving them some bios, nothing more. Shenanigans are afoot. Maybe I'll write it someday, maybe I won't. If someone else wanted to take these and run with them I'd be chill with that too as long as they talk to me first.
