Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This pairing was discovered by me, so please gimme a little mention if you write them! Thanks! It is one of many of Mew and Mor's Weird Pairings, most of which you may find in my forum topic in the HPFC, found here (Just take out the spaces!): http : / forum. fanfiction. net/ topic /44309 /25299326 /1/ Read, review, and enjoy!

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

just

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

Dean,

do tell me—

Do you have plans tomorrow?

This piece is intriguing. Not only does it play on all of Mor's and my weird Vic and Dom pairings, but it even includes a few that have been done prior. Mine: Vicnev, & Vicblaise. Mor's: Vikvic, Dractoire, Dracique. But I like the progression, that things just fall into Dominique's lap when she kinda doesn't want them…but she can't resist.

So…don't resist a review! Thanks!
