Kenneth Boudling


He was g_l_o_r_i_o_u_s

He was magnificent

He was


He was


& nothing would put a


on that


Charlie himself


So what?

Cormac was young,

he could fly,

he was the best choice for a Chaser back then

but Charlie !y_e_l_l_e_d!

at him for even thinking of

trying · out

So what, Charlie?

Cormac just

wasn'tgoodenough, Golden Boy?

Cormac wished he'd HexHexH_e_x_e_d him into oblivion

Aw. I think the title says it all. Poor Cormie! Charlie! You need to return to him! Dx This is definitely a cute slash pairing… Cormlie! XD

Thanks for reading, and please review!
