You keep your socially uneducated hands off my Jehan.

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 children," replied Victor icily. "And as for school bullying, that's what professors are for, and they've got a lot more power to help than just one student."

Who did McLeod think he was? Other families' relationships were none of his business, and he obviously thought highly of himself if he thought he had more control over school affairs than the professors. The whole thing was ridiculous, and obviously poorly thought out, given McLeod's words on homosexuality.

              "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

                  Wow. Okay, McLeod was either on another planet, or mad, or a fairytale story created in human form with an extra dose of annoying. Either way, why wasn't he in Aladren? "Umm..." began Victor,... more
