    Summary

    She almost smiles, and true alarm starts to build in his chest. “I’m afraid I’m not here for something so small. Professor Roberts has resigned.”

    “Good,” Draco says honestly, “Would you like a list of suitable alternatives? I know a number of competent potions masters abroad, but then of course you’d have to hire another teacher to act as the Slytherin head. I’m afraid you’ve dried up all the half decent Slytherin Potions masters.”

    “Not all of them,” she says quietly.

    He blinks. She can’t be serious. “You can’t be serious.”

    “Gravely,” she says, “Mr. Malfoy, I am not above begging.”

    What the bloody fuck. “I don’t even like potions!”

    ~

    Draco returns to Hogwarts.

    He has a duty to his blood and his name and his house, and he will fulfill it.

    Summary

      "If you're watching this, you're probably some kind of sentient life form responding to my distress call – well, it's not really an official distress call because, well, the hardware for that is kind of crushed, but I'm definitely in distress, so that should probably count for something."

      The young man on the screen sighs and rubs his face, jerking his hand away with a hiss. He's bleeding, Derek realises: there's a gash across his brow and the knuckles of both hands are bruised and bloody, and that's only what he can make out between the cracks in the glass and the frame of the camera.

    Summary

    “Foggy, listen to me. This isn't going to make any sense at all, but just – just listen. I need you to come by my place and – walk with me over to Murdock's, because I... need him to tell me how to call in sick.”

    For a prompt on the Daredevil kink meme:

    Matt Murdock + Brett Mahoney, body swap.

    (Full prompt and warnings in preliminary note.)

    Summary

    Derek stands frozen for a moment, disbelieving, before his hands come slowly forward. Its fur is surprisingly soft, and he buries his fingers in it as he strokes his way down its back. He catches its hindquarters on instinct when it springs out of the cage and onto his chest, shoving it face cold nose-first into the crook of his neck, and beneath the rumble of its purrs Derek can still make out the careful ticking of its heart.

    If he leaves it here, it's going to die alone. It's a sentence he knows all too well.

    “What sort of paperwork do you need me to fill out?”
