Heart's Desire: Think about something you once wanted so badly but never acquired. Write about how you think your life would've been different if you had received what your heart desired.

It was right there. He only needed to move a few inches, and he would see. But he wouldn't. He already knew what he would see, or thought he knew. Nothing much surprised him anytmore, about himself. He had spent enough hours contemplating his life and wishes to know exactly what he'd see, if he moved those few inches.

He could still hear the siren call of it though, the Mirror of Erised.

It was soft and tempting, telling him that maybe it was something else. Something wonderful that would make him realise something new about himself, make him change his ways, his choices, his life...

Which was impossible.

And yet, it could be... something else, couldn't it? A hidden desire he had never realised.

Severus turned away, determined not to look as he moved the few feet over to the door out into silence and away from the alluring song in his mind.

Look, Severus, look and learn... you will like it, you desire it, you want it... look and you will know...

His hand rested on the doorhandle and he hesitated. Dumbledore would move the mirror into the maze tomorrow and then he would not be able to get to it. Not without endangering their plans. This would probably be his last chance.

You want to. Look Severus, what can it hurt?

With a sigh he turned around and looked. His lips tightened slightly, then an unfamiliar look of resignation settled on his features. Because he had known.

Had known he would see his left arm outstretched, naked and... unmarked. No snake and skull, no sign of betrayed loyalties and the deadly folly of youth that had cost him... his life and freedom.

Had he never taken it, he would never have ended up here. He would have focused his life on research and potions. A potionsmaster, yes, but not a teacher at Hogwarts. Not Dumbledore's spy and not bound by loyalties that went far beyond any marks, gratitude and debt that bound him more efficiently than a magical bond could ever have.

He would have been free.

But at what price? He doubted the mirror would ever tell him.

Severus turned away and left silently, the dark mark smouldering on his skin and in his soul, no will and no desire on earth other than Lord Voldemort's able to remove it.

*blushes and smooches* It's a tough night for our dear potionsmaster. I'm still poking him about a reply to Remus' revelation. He's been tied to the headboard all night, so he wouldn't run for the hills while my mind was asleep. *goes back to poking*

LOL! Kirill sympathises - well as much as he can - given that Severus is his rival in lurve. Although he's much better at sharing than Severus is. He also figures he's in New York, so he has the advantage.

And Kirill does have the advantage of being that close. There's the timedifference as well as the distance, and Snape's obligations as in teaching and Order work.

It depends on what Remus makes of it all, really. Snape doesn't have many possibilities for just 'dropping by', and with this extra 'love' in Remus' life, he might even be reluctant to do so, on the off chance that he might run into Kirill there and see things he would rather not. So, Remus has some sorting out to do, if he really wants this.

*nodnod* Remus does have some sorting out to do. Funny thing is, Meta!Kirill doesn't really have any problems with Severus. Kirill's much more growly about some of the others flirting with Remus.

Kirill would also make himself scarce when Severus was due to show up. He wouldn't push it so that they'd overlap by 'accident'. (Although he still thinks the idea of a threesome with Severus and Remus is way hot - pervy pup).

LOLOLOL, dear god yes!! a threesome *wistful sigh* but I'd have to drug Sev to get him into that *pouts that melts into a naughty smile directed at that naughty Russian pup*

As for the overlapping, Remus is having it way too easy right now. Here's some homework for him.

Memo from Sev to Remus:


You need to come up with some sort of schedule for you 'love' life, don't you? How utterly romantic.


*mun and pup chuckle together*

*Kirill hands you drugs for your pup* :D

lol! I like the memo!

Add our chuckling to yours. *GGG*

*dies* Dear lord, I should post it as a meta-thread. *giggles*

*takes the drugs from Kirill and stores them securely, until a way to get Severus to take it, is found*

lol! you should! *veg*

Kirill suggests straddling Severus's chest, holding his nose until he gasps for breath, popping the pills in, then stroking his throat to make him swallow. He's a very helpful pup. *nodnod*

Bwahah! Don't tempt me, evil woman! :>

And well, first Kirill would need to get him on his back, wouldn't he? *eg* Remus should assist, I think. A quick Expelliarmus to get Sev's wand, followed up by a Locomotor mortis to get him off his feet, should do the trick. *is not giving hints here, no no* :D

*whistles and fails to look innocent*

When given the proper incentive, Remus and Kirill work very well together. *doesn't thank you for the non-hints* :D

*sticks out tongue and types up the memo* You're a bad influence, you know that? *g*

And I've noticed that good 'working' relationship between Kirill and Remus *waggles eyebrow and leers*

Ohhh, and I'm so looking forward to see how Kirill reacts to the werewolf transformation :D I enjoy their interaction a lot *hides that from Sev*

*looks intently at Mr. Davies who seems unduly excited over something*

Was there something you would like to share with us, Mr. Davies?

"Um, not at all. How are you doing Professor? Well, I trust. I did wonder however if you'd heard of using raw aloe as a base in healing ungents. It's what the Healer here at the Ministry seems to prefer."

*quirks eyebrow slightly at the young man's reaction*

Raw Aloe is a very common base for many healing ungents, especially those that treat inflamations. Combined with Camomile for the natural skincalming properties, you can treat most skin abrasions very efficiently.
