Title: Of Fireflies and Enchantments (A First Kiss)
Author: Julia (youokayhoney/demon_dear)
Rating: PG
Pairing: Albus Dumbledore/Gellert Grindelwald
Summary: Because I seem to be able to read AD/GG into anything in book 7 now, even Ron talking about how Albus is supposed to have invented the Deluminator.
Disclaimer: Do not own...
Warnings: boy-kissing! (whoo, first AD/GG kiss I've written! And first kiss I've done in ages... and possibly the only one I really like.)
Author's Note: none

“You know what you need to invent, Albus? Something that takes away light,” Gellert says, looking over at his friend with a slight twinkle in his eye.
They are sitting in an apple tree between Bathilda’s house and the Dumbledores’, and it is nearly dusk. Fireflies are swarming around, flashing every few seconds, and Gellert reaches out and catches one occasionally, watching its light shining between his fingers for a moment before letting it go.
Albus raises an eyebrow at him. “Lumos does that, Gellert, don’t tell me you’ve forgotten,” he replies, laughing softly.
Gellert rolls his eyes. “Honestly, Albus. I meant something that can take light away from something- a streetlamp or a candle- and store it, and then you can use it again whenever you need! Think about it!”
Albus thinks about it, and has to admit that it’s quite a good idea. “Well then, two questions. One, what on earth made you think of that, and two, why don’t you do it yourself?” he asks, shaking his arm slightly to dislodge a firefly.
“One, fireflies. And two, you’re the one that’s good at enchanting things,” Gellert tells him, as if they’re both much too obvious for him to be explaining them.
“And you enchant people.” Albus speaks without thinking, but realizes almost at once what he’s said. He tries to climb out of the tree, but Gellert grabs his arm before he can get very far at all.
“Do I enchant you, Albus?” he asks, and Albus doesn’t get a chance to respond before Gellert is kissing him and he has to focus on not falling out of the tree instead of fireflies and enchantments.
