Vic's had Neville

& Blaise

& Viktor

& Draco

& is back to Neville

(she never could stay away)

I've had Lysander

& Lorcan

& Teddy

& Draco

(because all sisters have hand-me-downs)

But Vic's seeing Blaise again

& I don't get it

Can't she be happy with Neville?

I'm not one to speak

I'm alone

& not searching

What pretty pictures

Is he an artist?

Merlin, to do that by hand

& not use his wand…

poor bloke

He can't possibly make a living

Well, I want my portrait

I'll give him some

good business

Nice to meet you, Dean

Oh, you knew Uncle Harry?

What a surprise

Small world, really

A few hours fly by

I'm not interested in


the portrait anymore

Dean, do you like coffee?

How about cocoa?

You can't possibly stand this

—it's freezing!

&& it's November

Let me treat you

No, I insist

Time elapses

I'm enthralled

Never have I met

such a man


do tell me—

Do you have plans tomorrow?


This piece is intriguing. I like the progression, that things just fall into Dominique's lap when she kinda doesn't want them…but she can't resist.

Thanks for reading, and please review!

Thanks as always to Morghen for beta'ing! XD

2017 note: Prolly only AO3 can rly handle the formatting for this 2010 FV, but I always loved making the FV stacked like stones…stepping stones. And Dom can have her artist phase. XD
