*W e l c o m e*

was supposed to mean

the same thing in

French&&Bulgarian

But what did that matter in the face of

cOmPeTiTiOn ?

Outside of Hogwarts

B~e~a~u~x~b~a~t~o~n~s

and

|D|u|r|m|s|t|r|a|n|g|

were the best schools around,

taught&l e d

by the best

(that grace—Olympe Maxime)

((that cunning—Igor Karkaroff))

(((that yearning to be the

BEST of the best)))

Oh, how they /p\u/s\h/e\d/ aside

the fact that

t h e i r

kind could never be the best at

a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g

A half-GiAnTeSs?

An ex-;]Death Eater[;?

WHAT

WERE

THEY

T●H●I●N●K●I●N●G●?

they. weren't.

She thought

'that man with the wild hair&&crazed eyes is not worth a look'

He thought

'that woman is more of a beast than I ever was'

Ah…

How their histories were similarly

/dredged\

up for the world to devour when a

-beetle-

opened its bloody wings

Then it was all

wondering if when they next reached

for that title of best—

would it even be within their grasp?

[No.

And things could only

f

a

from there.]

B-B-Because!

How could one have the

*r i g h t*

to call the other u/g-l\y— when they knew they were

t_h_e_m_s_e_l_v_e_s?

"Madam…"

"Monsieur…"

But, hey, if no one else would

look them in the

IeyeI

A few .::words::.

Several glances .::for sure::.

Not-so-subtle .::nods::.

&&the thought hit

(at least)

one of them that an "alliance"

did not have to stop at

) a m i a b l e (

boundaries…

So perhaps that whole

"best" thing

was useless&&useful

at the same time

h e y

It…"brought" them together,

didn't it? ;)

A very odd pairing that…actually makes sense…y'know, 'cuz of the whole Hogwarts/Beauxbatons/Durmstrang thing not even considering the Triwizard Tournament. Hmm. :+
