War broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Julian and Logan travel for almost a week more; Julian eventually becomes so agitated that he bites the inside of his cheek and scratches at his skin until they both bleed. Time and time again, Logan pulls the brunet’s hands away from his body and holds them in his own, leaning in close with concerned eyes and attempting to meet the brunet’s anxious gaze. Julian refuses to look at him.

Author’s Note: I might unintentionally be plagiarizing Beauty by Robin McKinley, so I apologize if that happens. The opening is a modified version of the first lines of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Also I quote some famous people/the Bible, but that should be pretty recognizable.
Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Though he was surrounded by decadence, he grew to be irate, self-centered, and unfriendly. One winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold.
Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince turned the old woman away. She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. When he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress.
Realizing his mistake, the prince tried to apologize, but it was too late. She transformed him to resemble a monster and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his horrific form, the prince concealed himself inside his castle with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world.
The rose the sorceress had offered was enchanted and would bloom until his twenty-first birthday. If he could learn to love and be loved in return by the time the last petal fell, the spell would be broken. If not, he would die with the flower. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope.
For who could ever learn to love a monster?

Author’s Note: This is a chapter in which we employ the willing suspension of the disbelief and pretend that mermaids can drink beverages that aren’t water from cups. XD
“Okay, you are depressing me so much I think I’m going to lose my eyes and start hanging a little ball of light in front of my head.”
Julian turns to his left and gives Kurt a blank look.
“You know,” says Kurt. “Because in the original sense of the word ‘depress’ means ‘push down.’”
Julian continues looking at him.
“You’re pushing me to the bottom of the ocean,” Kurt elaborates. “You know, where it’s really dark and the fish can’t see so they just hang those weird light thingies in front of them to attract prey and – never mind.”
As with the first Hogwarts!Jogan drabble I wrote, I apologize for my inability to speak (write) British English.
Logan stares at his toes in frustration. “That’s not going to work, Derek.”
“Na na na na everyday…it’s like my iPod’s stuck on replay, replay…”
FYI this is not part of “Nothing Gold.”
Here’s the thing about being an angel: your will is not really your own.
