    Summary

    The beauty and the beast; the boy and the land-bound siren; the least interesting quality in either of them is the shape of their skin. Fleur is vain, selfish, petty, pretty, and she falls whole-heartedly into a war that isn’t hers.

    Fleur is horrified when Molly thinks she will leave Bill for his scars. She is horrified that anyone would think her love skin deep, because Fleur Delacour, above all, knows what it is to be skin deep.

    They have been casting her as that all her life, but this beauty was her skin, not her vanity. This was her birthright, as much as Harry’s green eyes or Bill’s red hair and the war on his heels. This was so far from her self.

    It’s kind of a shame someone that talented is that big a douche.

    Summary

    “If you or I were a woman,” he continues, tilting his head the other way as he adjusts his grip on the pencil, “We’d be married by now.”

    The Captain’s body doesn’t react. He remains in his chair, rod-straight back, paperwork set out in neat, soldierly rows, pen in hand, ink dripping leisurely onto the table.

    The Captain’s mind splits down the middle with a deafening crack, paints itself red, ignites like a bonfire, throws itself off a cliff, dissolves into ash, jumps in front of a hurtling locomotive, steps off a fighter jet without a parachute and does a million other things besides.
