Day 6

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Theodore’s hands smoothed over the blanket laying across the counter in front of him. You couldn’t see the magic that imbued it, but he could sense it. Mild cheering charm, calming charm, small things that would soothe the small upsets without hiding larger problems. Yes, it would be the perfect gift for his soon-to-arrive nephew. The newest Nott, and the new heir of the House.

He did not resent the latter, no. He’d never wished to be heir, and it would be a load off his shoulders to know the line was secured. No, his resentment lay directly elsewhere.

It lay in the bed his brother shared with Daphne. It lay in the beautiful roundness of her belly, and the tiny feet that kicked. It lay in the fact that his brother had stolen his school sweetheart and married her, and how he had to smile at them as if he didn’t care, and that it didn’t hurt.

And with how he knew that the moment his nephew was born, Theo would look at the baby and imagine he was his. And every time he did so, his heart would break yet again.

He paid for the blanket and smiled at the clerk, having her wrap it as well. Yes, Daphne would love it.

Thank you!

Oh that was nice. :) I love that you used Daphne here.

THank you! Theo is one of my babies ;) I thought Daphne would work quite well -- maybe you subliminally put her on my brain!

Perhaps I did. :) Funnily enough, in the first RPG in which I played her (I did two), she started out as having a relationship with Theo, although that Theo was nothing like this Theo and the relationship in question was rather unhealthy. She had a relationship, he had sex. That sort of thing.

Ha, nice! Though yes a tad unhealthy.

Theo has long been one of my RP boys, though I don't have anything with him currently. (Ideas for future things, but nothing right now)

What lovely use of magic! I wish I'd had a blanket like that when I had my babies! :)

And poor Theo. I enjoyed how you wrote him here (I'm not overly fond of Slytherins, but Theo is one of the few exceptions).

Thank you! I play a Charms Mistress in a game and it has been such FUN coming up with things to make. I would love a blanket like that for a baby, totally.

Theo is my baby, along with a couple of others. I will always have a soft spot for him, even if he ends up a bit angsty sometimes!
