A/N: Written for why_me_why_not. I hope it makes sense, my friend, as it is set in my RP AU.

She deserved boxes of chocolates, bouquets of flowers, fancy dinners out and a wealth of jewels. Once, Blaise could have given Pansy all of those things and more. Now all he had to offer was a tattered and mended second-hand cloak, a mostly clean and uninfested place to sleep, and a strong set of arms to keep her safe with.

It wasn’t much. In any other world but this one, it wouldn’t be enough for her. Pansy had always been a lady of means and style. But ever since the Muggleborn Ministry, as it had been so cleverly dubbed, had risen and started rounding up purebloods, what he had was enough.

Especially since Theo was so busy organizing the resistance. Blaise participated, but Theo possessed a single-minded drive to free them all. Blaise admired it, and yes, even depended on it. Theo would be the one to free them from this hell hole of a ghetto camp. But that didn’t mean Blaise wasn’t going to take advantage of Theo’s absence to connect with Pansy again.

Even if he couldn’t woo her in the style she—and he—were accustomed to.

“Bon appétit,” Blaise said with a flourish. A simple but full meal was laid on a cloak up on the roof, lavish for the time and place—soup, bread, meat and veggie, and fruit. He’d hoarded and bargained for enough food chits to buy all of it.

It wasn’t a fancy restaurant or gourmet faire, but the way Pansy’s eyes lit up and she clapped her hands when she saw it made the effort almost better than what he could have provided, once upon a time.

You have a gift for darkness and dystopia, my dear. It's a rather interesting take on the possibilities.

*squee* Why thank you. I consider that quite the compliment! I love darkness and dystopias, though I'm not completely responsible for this one. The concept was come up with for an RP, which died, and my friend delayed_poet and I have continued (with a couple of AU permutations of it). Blaise is mine and Pansy is hers.

I'm very glad you enjoyed it. I love my angsty world and all my babies that go with it!

I'm very interested in this dystopic future and "Muggleborn Ministry." We often see dystopic worlds where Voldemort wins, but not what would happen if the tables were turned and the muggleborns abused their powers. I'm also liking the idea of Pansy/Theo and Blaise as the covetous thief waiting for his chance to steal the girl. Great work <3

Really? Good to know. I might start posting more of my prompt responses for my RP with delayed_poet on here as well as on my IJ. I didn't think anyone would be interested in reading them except for her :) THe whole concept is used in our RP.

I'm very glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for reading and commenting :)
