The Metamorphmagus' Mates
C1: Sick and Tired
Standard Disclaimer: I don't own any of the recognizable characters
A/N: Another HP fic that was sitting on my PC for a while. I actually started this one when I was still writing my Bonded Soul series, but only recently found the inspiration to continue it. It uses most of the characters of my Bonded Soul Series and is set after the War. I hope you all enjoy it.
She was sick and tired of these one night stands, why couldn't she just find a man or woman that loved her for who she was. It shouldn't be this difficult to find someone that cared about her. This is what Nymphodora Black thought as she slipped on her clothes after another night of pointless sex.
It also made her smile. There was one person that loved and cared for her, but he was her adopted brother, Fabian. So that didn't count, or did it? The more she thought about it, the more she figured it would be okay. Usually when she came back after another useless one-night stand, he never missed the opportunity to share her bed and make her feel special, just by being there for her.
She knew he loved her, and he had been her standard for all boyfriends she ever had, which is probably why she preferred her one night stands to be women, and while they were only two years apart, they were usually mistaken for twins by people who didn't know them, and now that the war was over, she hoped she would see a lot more of him at work.
Due to his help during the Second Wizarding War, Fabian had been granted a position in the Auror Corps, as an office manager, which would make it easy for her to go and see him at work.
He was also the only one besides her mother that was okay with her condition. Even her father was disgusted with her, which is probably why he left them.
By now she was fully dressed and she quickly apparated home, hoping to get a few more hours of sleep, hopefully with her brother.
When she re-appeared in her room, she had to smile that Fabian was fast asleep in her bed, again. His long black hair sprawled out on her pillows and his toned chest rising and falling slightly with every breath he took. "You know it's rude to stare, sis." He muttered sleepily.
She smiled and quickly undressed again, crawling in with him once she was naked, since that was how they both preferred to sleep. "Good morning Fabe, sorry to wake you, but why are you here in my bed?" She asked softly.
"You know why. I knew you would come back at some point, and you know I sleep better when I sleep next to my sister. Did you at least have fun last night, or was it just as bad as the others?" "He asked as he cuddled up to her.
"You know how it was, just as crap as every other time I go out. It seems I'm destined to live alone for the rest of my life. Maybe I should get a cat or something."
He sat up and pulled her into a hug. "You'll always have me sis."
She smiled and that. "I know Fabe, but you're not as fluffy as a cat. But seriously, some day you will find a girlfriend, and that will leave me alone again."
"No girl can ever compare to you, Dora. None of those girls who I went to school with and who used to throw themselves at me could hold a candle to you." He said softly.
Nymphodora smiled at that. "Yeah, I heard of your exploits in school, and I must say that it reminds me a lot of my own years at Hogwarts, how many girls did you fuck already?"
He smiled at that. "Most of them in my year, and even a few in lower years. There's Luna of course, Hermione Granger, Daphne and Astoria Greengrass, Ginny Weasley, Parvati and Padma Patil, Lavender Brown, Katie Bell, Angelina Johnson, Pansy Parkinson and Alicia Spinnet, Romilda Vane, Cho Chang, and I believe that's everyone until now. Oh wait, there were those French girls during the Triwizard three years ago, what were their names, I believe Fleur and Gabrielle Delacour, and that redhead from Beaxbatons, I believe her name was Yvette."
Nymphodora smiled at that. "You're such a womanizer, brother, I don't know how you manage to get them into bed with you, especially Parkinson, who has always had a serious case of Draco on the brain."
He smiled and sat back against the headboard, while Nymphodora took up a spot between his legs, sighing contently when his arms wrapped themselves around her waist. "She was a bit difficult, but a few whispered words in her ear had her wrapped around my finger, and later also around my dick."
"With a dick the size of yours I'm not surprised. I swear if we weren't brother and sister I would have been all over you already." She said with a slight husk to her voice.
"Nymmie, we may be brother and sister, but we share no blood between us, so in theory we could do whatever we want with each other." He said with heavy suggestion in his voice.
She quirked an eyebrow as she turned around in his arms. "Do you mean to say that you would actually want to fuck me? Even after everything we shared before? Because if we do this, a lot will change in our usual teasing dynamic."
He smiled and kissed her deeply, pulling her close at the same time. "Nym, I would love to be the only man in your bed and by your side forever, if only you would have me."
"Fabian, my sweet brother. I would love to be the only girl in your bed, but I'm afraid our mother would never agree with it, and besides, I promised to protect you, even if it is from myself." She said as she hugged him tightly.
"But what if I don't need protection anymore, but just a strong and beautiful woman by my side, and if I'm honest, I know no one stronger and more beautiful than my own sister." He said with a soft smile.
She smiled at him and was just about to kiss him when her bedroom door flew open, revealing their mother Andromeda.
"Seriously? Together in the same bed again? I swear, I should just lock you two in separate rooms when you are home." She said with a disapproving tone.
They both blushed and Nymphodora settled herself on the other side again. "Sorry Mum, but Fabian was here when I got home, so this time it is hardly my fault."
Andromeda shook her head at that. "So Fabian, you decided it would be a good idea to sleep in your sister's room again. What am I to do with you?"
"I think Nym and I are old enough to decide who we can and cannot love, mother. You know there will never be another girl I love more than her, and as you said yourself, you can't stop true love." He said softly.
Andromeda had to smile at that and took a seat on the edge of the bed, motioning her two children closer. "You know that there are a lot of social stigma's that surround this, even though you are not related by blood. I just want to protect you from that. Besides, you know your sister can only have one mate, and while he or she has yet to reveal itself, I will not stand idly by to see my beloved son have his heart broken."
They both nodded at that, when Nymphodora got an idea. "But what if Fabian is my mate mother? We have never tested that." She said softly, a glimmer of hope in her voice.
Andromeda frowned a bit at that. "We never bothered because we figured it couldn't be true. But if it will set your minds at ease, we will test it tomorrow." She said with a soft smile.
They nodded and hugged their mother, who smiled down on them. "But I want you two to know this, even if it is revealed that you two are mates, we will set some rules for you, and we will go by Aunt Bellatrix and Aunt Narcissa to verify everything, but for now you two better get dressed, your breakfast is getting cold."
"Yes mother." They said in unison, which made Andromeda smile at them. They had this sort of effect on each other since the moment they took him in five years ago when his mother Eliza was killed during a raid just before he turned eleven, and since she was named his godmother, she had gladly taken him in, and even before they took him into their home Nymphodora would draw to him so easily, especially when they would visit them for his birthday.
She left them to get dressed, really not wanting to look at the love-eyes they made at each other already, which only strengthened her beliefs that they were mated, which made her feel a bit conflicted. She would be happy for them, of course like any good mother would, but she couldn't let go of the feeling of loneliness. Perhaps ot was time to give her best friend a Floo again.
When they arrived downstairs a few minutes later, Andromeda had prepared them a nice breakfast of bacon and eggs. "Now I know that you are done with school, but you are required to buy your own robes when you have a desk job at the Ministry, so we will go shopping in Diagon Alley today, and after that we are meeting Narcissa and Bellatrix for lunch, and just so you know, Draco and his new girlfriend will be there, and I expect you to be the bigger man, Fabian. They have it difficult enough without Lucius there, even though he has himself to blame for being killed."
He nodded and ate his breakfast in silence, not really wanting to tell his mother that he and Draco had already patched things up at the end of last year. Nymphodora knew of course, he had always been bad at keeping things from her, and when he started sharing a bed with her almost full time, it was impossible to keep secrets from her.
Andromeda watched them eat with a knowing look. They showed so many of the signs that they were in love that they probably weren't even aware of, and it set some dread in her mind. It was possible that Nymphodora was mated to her adopted brother and knowing how fast that could go made her sad. It meant that if it was true, she would be alone again, and that was something she didn't want anymore.
Both Fabian and Nymphodora noticed there was something wrong with her, and once they were done, they took a seat next to her. "Are you okay Mum?" Nymphodora asked softly.
She smiled and wrapped an arm around them, knowing it wouldn't do to lie to them. "No Dora, there is a lot on my mind and it is weighing me down a bit. I was just thinking if it is true that you are mated to Fabian, I would be all alone again within months, and I don't think I could handle that." She said softly.
They shared a look and smiled at her. "Mum, even if I am mated to Fabian, that wouldn't mean we would just leave you here all by yourself. We both love you very much and probably couldn't live without having you close anyway." Nymphodora said softly.
Fabian nodded in confirmation of that. "That's true Mum. Ever since my mother died you have been nothing else but a loving mother to me, and while I really miss my mother, I have come to think of you as my true Mum, and we want you to be happy."
Andromeda smiled at them. "That's sweet of you, but I know how young couples in love act, and I'd rather not be present when you two fuck each other's mutual brains out."
They blushed a little at that, not really used hearing their mother use such coarse language. "I know we both have created a bit of a reputation over the years, but I think we will be completely monogamous if it is revealed that we are mated." Nymphodora said with a smile.
"Sorry if I don't believe that just yet Dora, both you and Fabian have been quite promiscuous over the years, and I find it hard to believe that both of you will only be devoted to each other if you would be mated." Andromeda said with a quirked eyebrow to them both.
They smiled at her. "I know it is hard to believe Mum, but if we are mated, we will prove that we can be monogamous, and I would even want to say devoted to each other." Fabian said softly.
Andromeda smiled at both of them, seeing the truth in their eyes. She still had doubts of course, but they would all soon know the truth.
After breakfast Nymphodora and Fabian went back upstairs to get dressed properly, and Nymphodora took this time to think about everything. She felt in her heart that her dear brother was her mate, and the thought was making her nervous. It would mean that every dream she ever had would come true, but also that their relationship would change in the biggest of ways.
"Nymphodora Jane Black, if you don't get moving we will leave without you!" Andromeda shouted up the stairs.
"Coming Mum!" She called back as she quickly put on her favorite skirt, which would make sure her brother's eyes would be solely on her.
She then quickly made her way back downstairs where her mother and brother were waiting for her. "Took you long enough sis, couldn't find something to wear in your immense closet?" Fabian asked with a cheeky smile.
She smiled at that. "I wanted to look nice for once, is that such a crime?"
He shook his head and smiled at her. "Of course not sister, but you know you could be dressed in a potato sack and still be the most beautiful girl in the world to me."
She blushed a little at that. "You know a potato sack would barely cover my butt, and I know you are a big fan of my butt, so I would like to keep some degree of modesty in public."
He smiled and gave her a hug. "You know I was just kidding sis. I know you can be a modest woman when you want to."
She just smiled at him. "If you two are quite done making love eyes at each other, we have a lot to do today."
"Sorry Mum, we are ready to go." Fabian said with a smile.
"Now, I don't have to stress that you two are to keep it chaste in public, no inappropriate touches, lingering hugs, no holding hands and especially no kissing, not until we had the opportunity to tell your Aunts and we had the chance to confirm everything." Andromeda said sternly.
"Yes mother. We promise." They said in unison.
Andromeda smiled and led them to the Floo, which they stepped through one by one.
When they stepped out of the Floo in the Leaky Cauldron, it was absolutely deserted, which was a new one for all of them.
They quickly made their way to the entrance to Diagon Alley, and after Andromeda tapped the bricks, she hooked her arms through that of her two children and led them into the alley.
They made a beeline for Madam Malkins, and for the first time Andromeda led her son to the back of the store where the work robes were located.
"You are a Black, so we need to find you some robes with some style and flair. I will not have my son walking around in anything less." Andromeda said as she took a few robes of the rack.
Fabian groaned softly as Nym took them from their mother, and she couldn't help but smile at her brother. He hated shopping with a passion, and every time they went shopping as a family he would not openly complain about it, but his facial expressions said more than enough.
"Oh lighten up Fabian, I know shopping isn't your favorite thing in the world, but you have to have some robes that show your status in the Ministry, it might help you in your future career." Andromeda said with a smile.
He only nodded and went into one of the cubicles with two robes. He didn't really see a difference between them, but that didn't stop his mother and sister from pushing more robes into the cubicle like they were on fire.
To make matters worse, he was forced to show each separate robe to them and they spent quite a lot of time judging his appearance, although his mother was a lot more subtle about it than his sister was, who was almost undressing him with her eyes.
After almost an hour Andromeda approved to his robes. "I think this is the one Fabian, it fits you like a glove. We'll put in an order for a few more before we leave."
"Finally, you know they all look the same, right?" He asked with a soft sigh.
Andromeda and Nymphodora smiled at that. "To the eyes of the untrained perhaps, but we do see subtle differences in them, so you'll just have to trust us that these will show everyone to which family you belong" Andromeda said with a smile
"I think very few people will doubt that to begin with, Mum." He said before going back into the cubicle to change back into his own clothes.
After paying for the robe and putting in an order for three more, they made their way back outside, Andromeda again looping her arms through those of her children.
They made their way to one of the many restaurants, where they would meet Bellatrix, Narcissa, Draco and his new girlfriend.
"Remember Fabian, be nice to Draco and his new girlfriend, they haven't been together long, but she's already been a good influence on him. I expect you to be the bigger man." Andromeda said mostly in warning.
He nodded and smiled as they entered, seeing their Aunts, Draco and Astoria Greengrass already present, the latter being there surprised Fabian a little.
They walked up to the table and Andromeda smiled at her sisters. "Bella, Cissa, it's so good to see you again, I trust you are well?"
Narcissa and Bellatrix smiled at her. "We are well Andi, thank you for asking, I hope and your children are well too?"
Andromeda smiled and nodded before turning to her son, who was glaring at Draco. "Malfoy." He said with a growl, although Nym could hear he didn't mean it.
"Black." Draco said with a similar glare, which they managed to do seriously for about ten second before the smiled and clapped each other on the back, much to the amazement of their mothers.
"Don't look so shocked Mum. Draco and I patched things up weeks ago, just after the final battle." Fabian said with a smile.
"Well you two had us fooled for a while, but I'm glad you two patched things up already. That will make everything a lot easier today and in the future." Narcissa said with a smile.
The two boys smiled at that. "You'll also be happy to know that I managed to smooth things over with Harry before everything went down, he was actually the first after my mother who knew about my relationship with Astoria." He said with a smile to his girlfriend.
Astoria smiled at him, but blushed heavily when she locked eyes with Fabian, although Draco didn't notice it.
They quickly took a seat and Andromeda shared a look with her two children before facing her sisters. "There is another thing I wanted to talk to you about. You know of Nymphodora's condition, so to speak, and with that comes a certain promiscuousness around puberty and then the finding of a true mate later in life. What I suspect is that Dora and Fabian are mated together, and I was hoping I could count on my dear sisters to help me a little."
Bellatrix and Narcissa shared a look and smiled at her. "Of course we will help you Andi, although I fail to see why you were so nervous on telling us something we knew from the moment you took him in. I heard Robert say, just before he died that it was the reason he kept Fabian away from you and Dora, that if Fabian was to be mated to Dora, it would ensure Robert wouldn't fulfill his orders to bring his heir into the Death Eaters." Bellatrix said with a smile.
"Well I'm glad you killed him Aunt Bella, as much as I wish my mother was still here, I found my family again, and I couldn't be happier about it." Fabian said with a smile.
Bellatrix smiled at that. "I'm glad you see it like that Fabian, your mother would have wanted you to try and move on, as hard as that may be. She was such a strong woman that loved you more than life itself, and the best way you can honor her is to live your life the way she wanted you to, free of any dark influences with people that love you."
He smiled at that. "And I will, but there will always be moments that I will think about her, but I know she would want me to live on with the people that care about me."
"And that we do sweetie, but back to our previous topic. We would be happy to help you with Fabian and Dora, tomorrow will be the perfect day to test it, so I suggest we test this tomorrow and get some clarity." Narcissa said with a smile.
Andromeda, Fabian and Nymphodora nodded at that. "Let's do that, these two deserve to know if they are mated, and I think most of the women in Magical Britain will be thankful for that." Andromeda said with a wink to her two children.
They both blushed at that, knowing their mother was right, and they could see that Astoria was sporting a similar blush, and it didn't go unnoticed by the others.
"Okay what is wrong with you two?" Narcissa asked sternly.
Fabian sighed a little at that and shared a look with Astoria, who nodded at him. "It is because Astoria and her sister are two of the girls who I had intimate relations with when we went to school, and unlike with most of the girls I slept with, this went on for quite a while."
"I should have known this would boil down to your promiscuous lifestyle. Now, what do you intend to do about this?" Andromeda asked sternly.
He smiled at that. "Draco already knew about this, and I apologized to him on several occasions, and I even went so far to tell Daphne and Astoria's parents, who understood things better than I thought and told me there would be no repercussions as long as I did not get them pregnant, which I assured them would not happen because I always used protection."
"We're glad you took responsibility for your actions in school Fabian, and we're even gladder that you were sensible enough to take precautions. It speaks highly of you." Bellatrix said with a smile.
He just smiled at that. "Thank you Aunt Bella."
"And I am glad as well Fabian, I would hate to find out that I was a grandmother already." Andromeda said with a similar smile.
He blushed at that as their lunch arrived, all of them eating in silence throughout lunch.
After lunch Andromeda, Nymphodora and Fabian bid their goodbyes to the others, although they would see them again tomorrow.
When they arrived home Andromeda sat her children down. "Right, that could have gone a whole lot different, and now that we are home, let's talk about the rules a bit. Since I know that you two will want to be close for as long as possible, I will allow you two to sleep in the same bed from now on, even if tomorrow reveals that Fabian is not your mate. All I ask is that you two keep it in your trousers until things are confirmed, and preferably after that for as long as possible. Furthermore, when and if it is revealed that you two are mates, we will make an official statement to the Daily Prophet to announce it, so that you two can explore your relationship in public, and lastly there will be no intimate contact whatsoever while you two are at work. I am still very close friends with Amelia Bones and will not hesitate to have her check on you."
They smiled at that. "Thank you Mom, those are all very easy to follow rules, and if it turns out we are mated, which I expect because I feel it in my heart, we will still act professionally at work." Nymphodora said with a smile.
Andromeda smiled and hugged them. "Then I am okay with, but it will still take me a while to get used to the fact should it be true, and I hope that you both know that I expect no grandchildren until you two are married."
"You would allow us to get married if we are revealed to be mated?" Fabian asked softly.
"Of course, why wouldn't I. I know if you are mated to Dora that you two will be joined at the hip and that you two would want to be together in every way. I know how these things go since I have seen them happen before and there are family records that tell of similar things happening, sometimes with the two marrying the same day, and before you ask, no, that is something I will not allow. If you two are revealed to be mates, I want you two to try and build a relationship, as difficult as that may be. So I expect you to a gentlemen toward your sister, and Dora, I want you to try and be a lady for your brother." Andromeda said with a smile.
They both nodded and hugged her. "We will certainly try, Mom. But I hope you will forgive us any slip-ups. I think we are both a bit rusty on etiquette." Nym said with a smile.
Andromeda smiled at them. "I will, and to make sure there will be little slip-ups, I asked your Aunt Narcissa to educate you a bit on etiquette."
Both Nymphodora and Fabian paled a bit at that. "What have we done to deserve such punishment, I heard Aunt Bella say she still has nightmares about those lessons."
"And so do I, but I'll ask Cissa to keep it mild for you two. There is no need for you two to suffer like Bella and I did, but you do need a little bit of education." Andromeda said with a smile.
They nodded and hugged their mother. "Is it okay if we go and take a nap until dinner, we're kind of tired."
"Of course my sweets, I'll call when dinner is ready."
They smiled and gave their mother a kiss on the cheek before they made their way to Fabian's room.
The moment they entered his room, Nym threw herself into his arms, hugging him tightly.
"What's wrong Nymmie?" He asked softly as he wrapped his arms around her.
"I just think what will happen if it turns out we are not mated. I don't think I could handle that." She said softly.
He smiled at her. "Let's go and lay down first, then I will tell you what I think."
She nodded and rendered them both naked with a flick of her wand, which made him smile as he led her to his bed.
They quickly crawled under the covers and Nym wasted no time in cuddling up to him, resting her head against his shoulder.
"Now that we are comfortable, I will tell you what I think. There is no way I am not your mate. I already can't stand the thought of losing you to another person and you yourself said this morning that you would love to have me close as well."
She smiled at him. "I do need you close Fabian. You have been my rock through all of my bad break-ups over the years, as well as one of the few people that are okay with my condition. I just hope my heart is right and that we are mated. I couldn't handle it if we weren't."
He smiled and kissed her softly. "I think we are. I love you and if we are mated I will show you each and every day how much I love you. I will make sure that you are loved the way a woman like you should be loved, unquestionably and with devotion."
She blushed at that. "I love you too Fabian, more than anything or anyone in the world."
"I think that is the first time I have ever heard you utter those words, even to that girl you dated for three years I have never heard you say it."
Nym smiled at that. "That's because I didn't love her, not like I love you anyway. My relationship to Lena was mostly out of mutual convenience. She had just come out as a lesbian, and I agreed to ease her into that, we never even had sex or something."
"I never knew, and here I was thinking that you were moaning because she was such a good fuck." He said softly.
"She could eat pussy like no one else I have ever had sex with, but I think that was because she was so willing to please me."
He smiled and pulled her closer. "I hope to at least match that if we are mated, Nymmie, among other things of course."
She smiled at that. "I know for a fact that you can please a woman. There have been numerous times that I have caught you groping my tits when I woke up with you in my bed, not to mention that time the tip of your cock was against my pussy lips, or did you forget about those things?"
"Of course not Nym, how could I ever forget the best memories of my life. I'm just glad that we didn't go further that day, you deserve a first time with me that is filled with love." He said softly.
"You will be my first in several ways Fabe. My first cock, my first boyfriend and of course my first ass-fuck, because I know how much you love my ass, and I would love to feel you there someday."
He blushed at that. "It's true you have an amazing ass. It's always hard not to look at it as you swing your hips, and I don't think I ever kept it a secret how much I love that nice bubble-butt of yours."
"I do not have a bubble-butt. How could you say that to me?" She asked as she glared at him.
He smiled at her. "Baby, you do have a bubble-butt, and I love the fact that you do. You are all woman, not like some of those stick figures at Hogwarts, I like to have something to grab on to and sink my fingers in."
She blushed at that, but kissed him none the less. "If you put it like that, I can't be angry at you, especially when you praise me like that. No one has ever said such loving things to me."
He smiled and kissed her softly, quickly deepening it as his sister turned around in his arms.
They made out like this until their mother called them down for dinner, the two of them quickly jumping out of bed and getting dressed again before they made their way downstairs.
