That sounds like a deflection if ever I've heard one.

“Those are some nice pearly whites you got there,” Sammy conceded. “But I can fix that pretty easily, and then you can try out some braces for yourself. They’re not that bad, by the way.” Her brother Ethan had them for most of his high school career and had been blessed by the Powers That Be to get them off before college. Not that it mattered, since he was going into it with a girlfriend and therefore had nobody to impress. “I’ll give you zapping stuff, though. All we’ve got is tasers, and they only let police have them, usually.”

She listened with surprising interest as Jamie explained his assignment, foregoing the joke of covering his work with hers and pulling her stuff off so he could actually see the interesting thing he was talking about. The nature of amortentia was exactly the nature of magic that she didn’t like: the kind that forced people to do stuff that they otherwise wouldn’t do. And obviously there were rules about it, as that was what his assignment discussed, just like there were rules about that Unforgivable Curse that controlled people, but rules didn’t always stop people. It was an unpleasant concept to imagine.

Amortentia’s smell was something she had not yet experienced, probably because brewing it was an Advanced thing and she was still Intermediate this year, but for the sake of the joke, especially as set up by Jamie’s inclusion of a particular Pecari Seeker’s aftershave, she could pretend otherwise. “Oh, yes, yes, Jamie!” she cried teasingly, clearly overly dramatic tone matching overly dramatic action as she rose to her feet. Her chair toppled behind her. “It’s you, Jamie! It’s you!” She threw herself across his lap, her arms flailing up as one knocked things off the table and the other (with much less force) smacked him in the face. “Take me, Jamie Park! I’m yours!”

    Sammy did a good Aladren impression. He grinned at her serious analysis of the problem at hand. He gave a light punch on the arm when she called wizards gross. “Yeah, but we can fly and just zap... more

        “Your job is to protect my beautiful face! Don’t you dare,” he chastised, when Sammy threatened to make it so he could try braces for himself. “Bull,” he called, when she said they weren’t that bad.... more

          His arms snaked around her waist, and she sat up some, very much still in his lap. “You’d better watch it. I might take you at your word.” His eyebrows raised and he leaned towards her. It was a joke ... more

            Was this for real, or was it some kind of really weird and sexy game of chicken? He decided that was his defence if he actually kissed her and then she slapped him. After all, Jamie never lost a game ... more

              “Do that again.” That was all he said, grinning. But he took the matter into his own hands and he kissed her again. Sammy found some sort of stride, moving with him as opposed to just moving. He was... more
