Summary: He didn't know it was seduction at the time.

He didn’t know it was seduction at the time.

Albus Dumbledore always prided himself on being observant and intelligent, moreso than those around him. But like most teenage boys, he had a very large blind spot when it came to anything to do with attraction, sex, and romance. The fact that it was his bestmate putting the moves on him added to the overall blindness.

After all, It wasn’t odd to have Gellert at his side from the time he woke up to the time he went to bed. It wasn’t unusual for Gellert to touch him casually, though it drove him mad and he had to hide it behind a thin smokescreen of daftness and brusqueness, in turns.

That Gellert was suddenly interested in Albus’ alchemy study didn’t even seem amiss; it seemed like Gellert was always there these days, to talk about future plans, to listen to Albus complain, to rant about Headmaster Dippet and his soft-handed ways with letting anyone into the school.

Albus turned from his potions equipment, and Gellert was there. Right there. Barely a breath away. His cheeks heated, damn his red hair, and he opened his mouth to make some comment to take notice away from his physical reaction.

Suddenly Gellert’s lips were on his, sealing the words inside. Words had already bound them together. Now, as Gellert kissed him and he kissed back, Albus was bound to him with yet another tie, a very physical one. He felt it as only a good thing, from head to toe and every point in between. It was lust; it was love. It was everything to him.

He didn’t know it was seduction at the time.

I love the refrain. It really highlights the truth of the relationship, love and lust encapsulated by pain and deceit. Poor Albus.

Really great work <3

Thank you! I do feel a bit bad for Albus--how horrible the realization must be for him--and yet he also brought some of it on to himself. :(

Thanks :D

Oh, I love it!

It makes sense to me, as the book suggests, that they were best friends and then something additional happened. Imagine how powerful they would have been had they stayed together!

Well done, J!

I'm glad you love it!

I think they would have changed the world had they stayed together. It could even have been a good thing, had their priorities been right. Almost makes me want an AU lol.

Thanks so much :D
