of circuitry and circular thinking

a / n ; So, it's been more than a year and a half since I've updated this, and I can't begin to formulate an excuse as to why. The closest I can come is saying that I've been studying abroad in Tokyo this past year and have been having entirely too much fun while doing so, so I guess time just got away from me. That being said, it has never been my intention to abandon this project, and I hope to see it through to the end. But thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time recently to critique and compliment this collection so far. It's reminded me how much I've enjoyed this. :)

With the stubble that's recently accumulated on his face, he thinks himself roguish and daring, like the pirate-princes and unsung heroes of his fantasies.

Maybe some girls' hearts are set a-thrum by the merest glance from the likes of his scruffy self, but Emmeline's isn't.

She likes to think herself a girl smart enough to know the difference between masculinity and a half-grown wizardling playing at it—she knows Sirius enough to know precisely which he is.

So, when he slings his arm around her, bringing his stubbly face close enough to scratch her cheeks—she ducks aside.

'No way.'
