    Summary

    Harry Potter has been hiding in plain sight all his life, since he carries the soul-mark of Minister Tom Riddle on his arm—and a fulfilled soul-bond will double both partners’ power. His parents and godfather are fugitives, members of the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry is a junior Ministry official feeding the Order what information he can. No one, least of all him, expects Harry to come to the sudden notice of Minister Riddle, or be drawn into a dangerous game of deception.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “But you also need someone who isn’t discouraged by that dull façade you’ve wrapped around yourself. I’m getting beneath that, aren’t I, Harry? You need someone who infuriates you because only rage is going to make you burn bright enough to live right now.”

    Harry cupped his hands in front of him, and the sparks of magic gathered there. Harry held his hands still, and held Riddle’s stunned, slowly widening eyes, as he built up a rotating spiral of white-golden light, dancing and falling like a continuously moving fountain. It was a picture of his own magical potential, one that students in their seventh year at Hogwarts learned to create. Harry knew both the light and motion of his power were unusual.

    And it was private. The only thing more private was one’s bed without a soulmate.

    “Here, you bastard,” Harry said. “Take this as a sign that I’m not afraid, and that I accept your bloody challenge. You’re still going to fucking /lose/. I don’t /need/ you. I can show my full magic and believe that people don’t want to use me and it has /nothing/ to do with you, /nothing/. I have reasons you can’t understand for what I do.” He was panting with anger, the emotion racing through him and making his words stumble over themselves. “Take this. It’s not sacred, it’s not secret, I just haven’t had someone to /show/ it to before.”

    He was sure, for a moment, that he had passed the irritation point and this was the part where Riddle would back away, he was standing so still. But instead, he paced gravely forwards and stood staring down at Harry’s fountain, glinting with radiance. Harry held his gaze and didn’t flinch as Riddle reached out.

    He took Harry’s right hand and tilted it up without disturbing the fountain image. Harry’s heart raced with terror for a moment at how close those fingertips were to the hidden name, but Riddle didn’t seek to wrap them around Harry’s wrist.

    Instead, he bowed his head and kissed the back of Harry’s hand, holding their joined gaze all the while.

    Harry couldn’t help the way his eyes widened and his breath came faster. Or the knowledge that this was definitely not from anger.

    “Challenge accepted, indeed,” Riddle said. His voice had deepened to a rumble that Harry hated finding erotic. “You have no idea how beautiful you are, or how much I want you. Or how fun the chase will be.”

    And he stepped back and smiled at Harry one more time before walking out of the room.

    It begins because Theo wants to annoy Draco, and expressing support for Harry Potter in the Triwizard Tournament is the way to do that. But it continues from there because Theo can see exactly how valuable Potter is--no matter that everyone else ignores it.

    Theo smiles all the way back to the castle, judging the heat and the flutter in his stomach, the way that Harry’s eyes lingered on him, the way that they switched so easily to first name, how Harry is obviously going to make room for Theo in his life out of sheer stubbornness at the way Weasley snapped at him.

    Theo can manipulate anyone, even himself.

    If that means manipulating himself into falling in love with Harry Potter, Theo thinks that’s neither the hardest nor the worst thing he’s ever done.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    His eyes are so /bright/. Orion has to stop himself from licking his lips, which would probably unnerve Potter more. He doesn’t seem to be used to people desiring him or acting as if they want him around. “In public, I’ll act like that,” he replies. “Like Riddle’s loyal little follower. But I’ll spy on him and them for you, and warn you if it looks like they’re setting up some kind of trap.”

    Potter closes hie eyes and mumbles something that sounds like, “Snape,” for a second. Orion’s about to ask him who that is when Potter opens his eyes. “It’s too dangerous. I can’t let you.”

    “I choose to do this,” Orion says, jutting his chin up. He banishes his father’s words about how he has to be careful about choosing his leader to the back of his mind. Yes, of course he has to be. And this is correcting a choice that he really should have known was the wrong one the first time he saw Riddle go into a mindless rage because Abraxas didn’t give him a bow of the proper depth. “Are you going to force me not to?”

    “No.” Potter frowns at him, his eyes brightening again with his emotions. Orion just hopes that they’ll gain allies who want to shelter beneath Potter’s power without wanting to fuck him as much as Orion does. “I just—” He shakes his head. “You really know nothing about me, Black. You don’t know that I’m not just as unstable as Riddle.”

    “I know,” Orion says, fully confident. Potter, for all that he has secrets, also wears honesty on the surface of his skin. He won’t turn on Orion. If Orion can convince him that they can be loyal to each other without fears of betrayal, what a friend—what an ally—what a leader—

    /What a spouse he’ll make/.

    And Orion acknowledges his choice in the back of his mind. Father once told him that he knew Mother was the one for him the first time he saw her. It’s taken longer than that for Orion, but he still knows that he’s made the right choice. It thrums through his body like hot water.
