dragonofgrey: (Draco and Mia outside)

There was a lot of pink around, pink doves gently cooing. Lots of pink roses sprouted up like vines, and soft music playing. Also fairy lights that he got on special order from his world. The tables was not yet set, but it will be soon enough. And dinner was nearly ready. He even got some pink champagne for her.

He gets an initial gasp of surprise, but he's...probably not going to get the overall reaction that he was shooting for.

She doesn't really understand the occasion, a little foggy on when Valentine's Day actually is.

(Surely it can't be today, right?)

Her attention ends up going to the lights.

A moment's hesitation before she asks, "What are these?"

Draco just smiled, "Happy Valentine's Day, Mia. And hmm? Oh fairy lights, very popular decoration for parties in my world. The school had them for the Yule Ball even."

Mia didn't even hear the holiday greeting.

"Fairy light?" she asks, turning to him. "Real fairies?"

She's not mad just yet, but she is pretty upset already.

"But why?"

Date: 2008-02-16 03:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
"Well, yes they're real. They're from my world. And they rather like it. They think they're very pretty too, and liked being stared and admired."

"Like it?" Mia asks incredulously. "Because they're pretty? That's all they are?"

Date: 2008-02-16 03:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
"Well, yes. We learned how they buzz around at each other in my classes. And vain. They like being admired."

Not that he would know anything about that. >.>

gorgonfondness: (crying)

"And so that somehow makes capturing them right," she says, her lips pressed together in a line for a moment.

And now the tears prick at the corners of her eyes.

"Let them go," she quietly says.

"Mia, I didn't capture them. The store back home offers them like this."

He sighed, "I can't do it here. The fairies here would be confused by them, and not sure if they could survive in your world. I was going to take them back tomorrow anyway."

Date: 2008-02-16 03:39 am (UTC)
gorgonfondness: (crying)

"Just because the store does it doesn't mean it's right. Take them back now," she insists, some tears spilling over. "Please, take them back and let them go."

Draco looked back at her.

"It's just a custom from home..." He sighed, and went to gather them up.

"Fine. Just wanted to make tonight special for you, and show you how much I love you. Especially since be our first Valentine's Day together. That's all."

And then apparated to where the portal was so he could head into the bar to stop back in his world.

He was gone for a while.

"Being reminded of Ghaleon's casual cruelty isn't a good way to do it," she replies, hurt.

He, after all, thought it was all right to capture fairies for his garden.

She watches as he takes the fairies back, a few tears still tracing their trails.

He finally Apparated back, and looked at her.

"Dinner's probably cold now. And I cooked."

Date: 2008-02-16 04:24 am (UTC)
gorgonfondness: (crying)
From: [personal profile] gorgonfondness
She wipes some of her tears away and looks back at him.

"That's what you're thinking about? Cold dinner?"

She'll be touched about Draco cooking some time later. Right now, she can't see why he would even think about that.

Date: 2008-02-16 06:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
"Well, I thought you'd be pleased that I did... it's all for you, Mia."

From: [personal profile] gorgonfondness
"Well, maybe I would be if you didn't think to keep those fairies in here," she says, finally riled into anger. "Would you like your own garden to keep them in and everything? Like his?"

From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
Draco blinked at that, "Like who? Mia, it's just a festive way to decorate where I come from. I could show you how some of my families parties were in my Rememberizer."

Date: 2008-02-16 06:54 am (UTC)
gorgonfondness: (serious)
From: [personal profile] gorgonfondness
"Like Ghaleon."

Her features are colder now.

"Keeping living creatures locked up just because they're pretty doesn't sound terribly festive to me. Even those who walk willingly into a cage are still caged."

From: [identity profile] dragonofgrey.livejournal.com
"Oh for Merlin and Althena's sake! I'm not Ghaleon!" Draco exasperatedly said.

"Mia, it's just part of my world, like the house elves. I know you had trouble understanding that as well. It's just how it is there. It's not like what you think it is."

Date: 2008-02-16 07:12 am (UTC)

Had

trouble

understanding?

How did she not understand that? How does she not understand this?

How is keeping fairies as lights different than keeping fairies as garden decorations? How is one less cruel than the other?

And if that's what he's willing to do to fairies and house elves, then what is he willing to do to humans?

Her tears are burning hot on her face and her throat is choking up. She can't find any argument, but what good would one be if she doesn't understand anyway.

And so she ends up saying-

-no, shouting-

-something that she's never said to him.

"I despise you!"

Actually he had locked up humans. Other wizards even. Not that he all together wanted to. He was under orders at the time.

Draco seemed rather calm, cold. Even though his hands were faintly shaking.

He asked, his tone of voice breaking slightly, giving away how he was affected by this.

"Despise me? For something that's part of my background, my culture? This is who I am. If you don't like it, why did you bother saying yes?"

His face then twisted into a sneer, "Fine. Enjoy the sodding food, the doves, the sparkling pink bubble bath. Don't know why I bother with such trouble if it's not going to be appreciated." He then turned around to leave.

Turning into a fox since simpler thought processes would be easier to deal with right now.

"You forgot something!"

And she manages to hit his head with the engagement ring before she storms out herself.

The fox yiped at that. And then stared down at the ring. He glanced back at her, and then carefully picked up the ring before running outside. Heading for his potion shop.
