They were on it again. Of course they were, as there seemed to be a certain rule in those novels that at least every six pages there had to be a overly heated scene between the female protagonist and the old as balls vampire, describing things that sounded highly unsanitary and made Dracon raise a brow when he flipped the page - or more, he turned it slowly, because he did not want to rush his reading. By now he knew that the female protagonist - Kira, like Simba’s daughter, or what had her name been? He started to mix things up when getting bored - would end up either crying or screaming, but would be very happy about it. Something told him that the author was most likely a man disguising himself with a woman’s name, because he doubted that girls were really into that kind of stuff. If he would openly admit to reading vampire romance novel - which was just thinly veiled smut, let’s all be real here - he would have endless discussions with people about everything that was wrong in this novel, starting at the plot and ending at...well, the plot as well. The plot was the problem here, because he could barely find it.

The boy reached out with a careless gesture and pushed his glasses back up on his nose, adjusting his comfortable reading position on the couch in the Gryffindor common room: feet on the table, back against the cushions, his hair a dark mess he had somehow wrestled in a messy bun on the back of his head, two pencils keeping it all in place. The only reason why he dared reading such books - with rather indecent covers, too, he should have known what he was getting himself into - in public was the fact that the common room was lying abandoned at this time of the day, and he could indulge in his guilty pleasure of reading these novels. Eternal Kiss of Darkness, what a witty title for a vampire novel, he was going to put it onto his list of shitty titles. In fact, Drake had a small notebook with notes about everything that was wrong with these novels - he was not kidding when he said he read them for science.

One day, he might just write one of these novels as well, while avoiding every clichée he had figured out so far. This time - the time when they were on it again, you remember? - it was an ancient vampire (lame) from Egypt (been there, done that, read the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice) who was sick of his existence (how original) and has an archenemy (don’t we all?). But of course, the female protagonist (with some unexplained supernatural power, of course) comes in his life (if you can call this a life) and once more, love changes everything and heals his suicidal thoughts (not even John Green approves of this any more). The enemy (also some ancient Egyptian vampire, every dude in Egypt was apparently secretly a vampire) of course kidnaps the vampire’s love interest (because clearly some ass old vampire doesn’t have cooler treasures than his fling he met like two days ago) and somewhere in the process, she becomes a vampire too. That, my dear children, was classic literature. Not.

Drake’s hand wandered towards his hair and pushed a single dark strand back behind his ear before he slowly turned another page. This was his kind of afternoon entertainment, and there was no time to eat or drink or care about the sound of the Fat Lady’s portrait swinging open because he intended to finish this book today, a sardonic smile on his lips. Oh, the little joys in life. He was going to have a lot to note down later, once he had finished this crap.

It occurred to Noire Winters a few days ago that she never read Twilight before.

It wasn't that she never heard of it before. She had seen copies of it lying everywhere in her common room back at Beauxbatons. Once, there had been a copy sandwiched in between the sofa; a female student searched for it for the entire afternoon until someone managed to find it hidden between two cushions. Noire was merely puzzled as to how the novel ended there, but it was the first time she took notice of the book. It was a known fact that Noire stuck strictly to Tolkien. Any other book she read tended to make her fall asleep before she could get past the first few pages. It wasn’t that she didn’t try, but anything without elves, hobbits, and dragons was boring. However, she knew Twilight and its sequels were popular among the female population. When the last book came out, a flurry of people rushed to finish the novel. In a matter of days, she was hearing random exclamations of “oh my gosh, I can’t believe Bella did that”, “that was a stupid ending, I hated it”, or “Edward Cullens is so hot and dreamy, I just want to eat him up!”

She didn’t understand the hype behind the book’s popularity outside the fact that it was supposedly about sparkling vampires. Now that she was stuck at Hogwarts while waiting for her brothers to come and retrieve her, she had a limited number of activities she could do. While it was common for Noire to be outside because she loved the outdoors, it was a bit harder to do that while at Hogwarts. Her brothers instructed the girl to lay low while she was still hiding from the mafia. She didn’t want to risk people seeing her and realizing that she was a girl.

Despite what others thought of her, she wasn’t that stupid. Noire understood she could never be a good liar. In fact, she didn't want to be a good liar. However, it made things tricky when she had to lie about being a boy. She had been a girl for the last sixteen years of her life, so the transition was tricky. Going outside, where many of the other students were probably at, was a no go. She avoided crowds. Even Noire had to admit that it would be a risky action, so instead, she asked another girl at the Gryffindor tower to lend her a copy of Twilight. The girl looked at Noire strangely, like she had grown two heads or something during the time she asked to borrow the book. Noire wasn’t sure why it would be that weird, considering she did catch a few boys reading the book too back home. It didn’t matter too much because in the end, the girl eventually conceded and allowed her to borrow the book.

She had only read through chapter one, but it was pretty hard to stay awake. It was better than doing nothing, though, which was what she would have been doing otherwise. The girl had a few essays she needed to complete before the end of the week, but she could not find the motivation to complete them. Besides, she wanted to see what all the commotion was about. Turning the corner, she neared the entrance of the Gryffindor common room. As she spoke the password, the Fat Lady’s portrait swung open and granted her access. Making her way inside, she noticed there was a boy lounging on the sofa with a book in his hand too. She could faintly make out the words Eternal Kiss of Darkness on the cover of his book. Maybe he was also reading about vampires too! The title hinted at it...maybe. Or it could have been about werewolves.

Without waiting for a response, she thrust her book in front of his face. “Have you ever read Twilight?”

Usually, Dracon’s fast - and yet clumsy - reflexes had taught him to hide a book whenever someone approached, and with time, he had developed rather odd methods of doing so. Sometimes, he shoved the book in question underneath a pillow, and sometimes he just sat on it, while he had also caught himself throwing the book behind a chair or couch. Desperate times called for desperate measures, and his rather odd choice of lecture was ruining his well-groomed reputation of killing people with teaspoons - as if it really was his fault he had a disgruntled default facial expression. This time, he had been taken by surprise, still absorbed in the world of ancient vampires and their idiot girlfriends while someone had dared coming close and interrupting his quality me time - the time of the day that was dedicated to himself because he clearly was a prime example of a social person. Not. No, he really wasn’t.

There were a lot of odd things he liked to do although he sucked at them: he liked riding, but he often fell off the horse or got hit by random branches. He played Quidditch, but found himself falling off his broom more often than necessary. And Drake enjoyed reading, yet such awkward books that it was always a dangerous to read in public. All of the sudden, an all too familiar book was shoved in his sight, making him drop his own to the floor immediately before he stared at the person in front of him through his glasses, suspiciously squinting at the boy - from the looks - that most definitely sounded like a girl. Oh, the Yaxley boy wasn’t judging, he merely pushed his black-framed glasses up his nose again and stared at his housemate before sitting on more graceful ways again, not bothering to pick the book that had fallen to the ground up. Maybe his new conversation partner had not seen the title yet.

Then again, why would they ask for Twilight otherwise? Drake was literally fucked, and he sighed deeply, blue eyes settling on the person in question. He had not only read all the Twilight books, but also filled a notebook - and a half - with all the things that were utterly wrong with it. Sparkling vampires? Vegetarian vampires? Everyone who had read Interview with the Vampire knew that they couldn’t live on animal blood because it did not nurture them well enough - and Anne Rice was the true queen of vampire novels after all. Dracon cleared his throat, wondering how much he could give away without talking himself into a total book rage again.

“Depends on why you are asking,” the tall boy finally replied, still squinting a little while his shoe landed on the book beside him. Yes, his hiding methods were impressive and he was a goddamn king of disguising his favourite books. Next time he was just going to use a charm like a proper wizard instead of openly reading a book. It was too dangerous.
