Drabble: Ready

Thank you so much to justinlovesart, secretsolitaire, astarloa for prompting me some drabbles! I love all your prompts, though I have to say justinlovesart yours is by far the hardest!  secretsolitaire, I hope to have yours up soon.  

Here is the first of the requested drabbles. This one is for astarloa The prompt was: I'll select your Queer as Magic Verse, with the prompt: woollen socks ;)

Thanks, hun.  It gives me an excuse to use my Brian/Draco icon again. :)


Ready

"These are hot," Brian says as he picks up a sleek, black knee-high boot.

"Dragon hide," Draco says off handedly and Brian snickers, never ceasing to be amazed even after all this time as he replaces the boot next to its twin.

Draco chews at his thumb nail, surveying the kit laid out on their bed. Everything, from the emblazoned, grey robes to the admittedly sexy boots to the tall woolen socks that go underneath are the standard issue New York City Auror Department uniform.

"You ready for this?" Brian asks, his voice just as soft as the hand that falls on Draco's bare shoulder.

"Top of my class, remember?"

"I know, but still…big day."

Draco pulls his eyes away from his hard-earned privilege, letting them fall on his partner's face. The concern is plain.

"I'm going to be fine," Draco whispers against Brian's mouth before brushing their lips together softly. "They'll have me on a safe assignment these first few months. Nothing that I'm not ready for."

Brian nods then pulls Draco against him, well aware that he, and not the one putting his life on the line everyday, is the one who may never be truly ready.

Brian and Draco...I've loved this verse SO much. I saw you planned a long story for them. GREAT. :D
If it's not too late for a prompt, I would want one in this verse with "Brian's first magic lesson with Draco."

Brian and Draco!!!! How I've missed them! Now I have to go back and read your whole multi chapter with them all over again, for like the millionth time ^_^

Loved this drabble, especially that Draco was top of his class *grins* And in my traditional way of replying to Queer as Magic, I have to attach a pic that reminds me of this drabble, hehe.

Aww!!!! Thanks for the pretties!!! And thank you for reading. I was so happy writing those guys again.

As I said, I have a long fic that has been kicking around in my head for AGES. Like a YEAR! I've tried starting it a few times, but without much flow. Maybe all these drabbles will help get things going. :)
