Fanfic: And I Will Take You By the Hand
Pairing: Teshima Junta/Aoyagi Hajime
Summary: From his very first day at Hogwarts, Teshima knew where he was meant to go. He was destined for Slytherin, precisely the type to plan and strive and fight to advance, to hinge his ambition on an unwavering determination. He might not be the very brightest, or the most technically skilled, but by no means will he allow that to keep him from making something of himself. Teshima has always known where he wants to be, but he doesn’t want to go there alone.
Notes: This was written for friend Ollie for his birthday and is honestly one of the cutest things I have ever written. Slow-build, romantic friendship, friends into something more dynamic founded on partnership and understanding, or basically: canon T2 except it’s at Hogwarts and they kiss on screen. It got powerfully out of hand and is really, really long for tumblr, I’d recommend the AO3 link.
Teshima knows, years before riding on the Hogwarts Express, or sailing across the Great Lake, or feeling the Sorting Hat sink down around his eyes, what house he’s going to be sorted into.
He was always meant for Slytherin. It was his mother’s house, and his father’s house, and his parents always tell him that he is a clever boy, with such big plans. He is his mother’s shining star, her ambitious little prince. His father assures him that there is no greater house, though he confides that perhaps not all of Teshima’s peers will see it. Both of his parents promise him the best of times at Hogwarts.
