    Summary

    Not wanting her children to lose their connection to the non-magical world, Oliver’s muggleborn mother decides for her family to spend the summer before Oliver’s final and his younger sister Maisie’s first year at Hogwarts at the Butlin’s holiday resort. Oliver, understandably miffed about missing the Puddlemere United summer camp, cannot think of a worse place to spend the holidays.

    Marcus was really looking forward to his first free summer after graduating from Hogwarts. He was looking forward to academic freedom for all of two hours after which a letter from McGonagall informed him that he’d failed his N.E.W.T.s and would be returning to school in autumn. His parents (not just angry, but also disappointed) decide to send him to his genius sister for a summer of tutoring and revision.

    When the two of them run into each other, both are convinced that their summer just got a whole lot worse. Because surely nothing good can come from seeing your Quidditch rival covered in sand and wearing much less than you ever wanted to see them in, right? Right?

    Summary

    “You look bored, Flint. Looking for someone?”

    Marcus didn’t even turn his head, simply took a sip of his drink. “Hardly. You evidently were, if you spotted me back here. Shouldn’t you be with your date, Wood? I’m sure you had a list of invites to choose from.”

    Marcus shows up to the Yule Ball solo. So does Oliver. Neither one is especially pleased about it, and the reasons why are personal.

    Written for a Tumblr anon who asked about Yule Ball Flintwood, cross-posted to here.

    Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.

    (Answering a request from a Tumblr anon, who asked about battlefield Flintwood without Marcus being a Death Eater.)

    Summary

    Legilimency becomes the thing that he fears the most, because even inside his own head there’s nowhere to hide any more, no place of safety. Marcus was forced into becoming a Death Eater. He played both sides to keep one person alive who doesn’t even know how Marcus feels about him, and he wouldn’t choose differently given the chance a second time. The war is supposed to be over. Try telling the inside of his head that. Oliver stays with him, and he doesn’t know how to reach out without pushing him away. [possible triggers: severe PTSD, hospitals, battle situations, Legilimency]
