My fit of procrastination for today involved taking a Sorting personality test. I usually avoid those, but this one came recommended.
I scored: 81 Hufflepuff, 70 Gryffindor, 70 Ravenclaw and 54 Slytherin.
I guess the fact that I believe Slytherins are just people, neither nice nor evil, stems from a friendly attitude rather than empathy with fellow snakes then.
Also, I hunted for Charlie Weasley fics and I return triumphant to share the best of the bunch with you.

Summary: Charlie goes to Durmstrang to share his love of dragons, and Viktor shares how the boys keep warm on cold winter nights.
My notes: An interesting reason why Charlie is at Durmstrang in the first place, funny conversations, smut and a funny conversation with Ron some time later. Plus, Charlie has reading glasses and tattoos.
AU since the release of Deathly Hallows
