I'm trying to write a thank-you fic, which turned into Maou/Shinou, Shinou/Constantine, Maou/Constantine, and Constantine/Wolfram. I have nothing to say for myself.
Here's part of the opening:
the devil you know
“Why hello, John. What brings you here today?”
“Ever heard of a Wolfram von Bielefeld?”
Silence, then a startled burst of laughter.
“John!” The amusement is alive in Ellie’s voice. “Setting your sights a little high, aren’t we?”
“All right, all right. Whatever you say, John. Always happy to please. Wolfram von Bielefeld, son of Cecilie von Spitzberg, engaged to the Maou of Shin Makoku. Fire elementalist – they don’t call it that there, John, but you understand – and deeply devoted to the one he’s going to marry. Well. Sad to say, his affection doesn’t run both ways, but still. John. I don’t need to tell you that you’re playing with fire here, do I?”
“Whatever you’re thinking, John, don’t try it. I know you. The Maou isn’t to be underestimated. I understand the boy is a bit of a flake at times, but the Maou’s a whole different story. News has a nasty tendency of spreading like wildfire, and if I know you, this won’t be the last of it. How did you get involved in this, anyway?”
“Long story, Ellie. And I’m running out of time.”
“I’ve always got time for you, John. But – take it from me, John. Playing with fire is a dangerous business. Careful you don’t get burned.”
