"Cool," Kir replied in a neutral tone. Honestly, Victor could basically have said any words at all, and - so long as it wasn't violent, disgusting, or surprisingly kinky - got the same reaction.

What did Kir do for fun. Other boys was a tempting answer, even if not strictly true, just to see the look on Victor's face. As was the actually true answer of Dressing up like a girl and lipsynching incredibly cheesy pop songs. But he was trying to be civil, not push Victor's buttons, even though the latter would be so much easier to achieve... And, of course, to push the gay agenda.

"I'm in a gaming group here at school," he replied. He knew Victor would have no clue what Dungeons and Dragons was and would also care too little to ask. "At home, I help my parents out a lot. They run a charity," he explained. He suspected that most Purebloods hadn't heard of exactly what they did. Enough to know that they were terrible blood traitors, and possibly that they went around ripping families apart with their liberal nonsense, if they had been told anything. But mostly he suspected they weren't acknowledged at all. Why let your kids know they have options when your whole aim is to dominate and control their behaviour?

        McLeod's gaming group sounded...well Victor didn't actually know anything about it, but it was probably pretty boring. Besides, they were all a bit old for games now, weren't they? He was also... more

          • Well. There it was. McLeod's family's charity was some attempt to undermine pureblood values and to split up families. "I think you'll find that most families just want what's best for their... more

              • "Well of course no one should be hurt or threatened!" This was just getting insulting, now. Did McLeod really think Victor would be on-board with all of that? "But that doesn't mean people should... more
                • No one should be harmed or threatened. Good. That was reassuring. Rational human decency, one point. But being yourself bad, random spurious comparison to something that wasn't relevant... Score one... more

                    "You can't help who you fall in love with," Victor conceeded. "But that doesn't mean you should act on it. There are certain rules in society, and they have to be followed. If I fell in love with a... more
