Quacks like a Slytherin


Baekhyun, a regular old 'Mudblood' from Gryffindor might be in a love-hate relationship with the Slytherin Pureblood Park Chanyeol. Also featuring minor Kaisoo, in which the Hufflepuff Seeker Jongin is madly in love with Do Kyungsoo and is very intent on declaring it to the world.


The whole pureblood vs mudblood thing ? It always simmers under the surface. Blood purity might be a thing that's not openly talked about but it's very much alive and well. Baekhyun being completely and wholly muggleborn has always been a target. Now in his sixth year, he gives as good as he gets, insults easily rolling off his tongue because you have to defend yourself even if you think it's stupid and a waste of time. He can now insult a Slytherin pureblood in his sleep, has engaged with verbal wars with almost half of them. It's sort of a thing a Gryffindor does.


But there are some Slytherins who think even engaging in verbal war is beneath them. Park Chanyeol is one of them. While most Slytherins seem human with their hexes and stupid pranks, Chanyeol never pranks, never engages in any good-natured (or otherwise) house rivalry shenanigans. The general consensus is that too high and mighty for such things, what with being the only son of current Minister of Magic and having a reputation to uphold and all that. For someone so hung up on status and image, he sure has a nice smile, Baekhyun thinks, which is totally unfair. Because otherwise, Chanyeol is everything he resents - especially since that day in first year when he innocently wandered over to the Slytherin table and stuck out his hand, blurted out that he wanted to Chanyeol's friend. The taller boy was funny looking, had a nice smile and Baekhyun had still not absorbed the house rivalry thing yet. He did get it, that day when Chanyeol stared at his hand and then looked away.

crossed 200 subs for this story. Cool !

Chapter 47: Ok so, I just finished reading the whole thing in a span of two days and oh b o y. I didn't even have the control to stop and comment because I was so invested! I rarely see this quality of writting??? SO WELL DONE! By the way, I saw author mention they want to write their own book, and I can instantly say that I would absolutely read it no doubt ♡♡♡
(Reading further might contain spoilers!!!)
For the story itself - the plot is a m a z i n g. The dynamics!!! And the setting is so smart! I always personally thought the things in the magic war weren't as simple as good/bad, and the author conveyed it perfectly! Although the light side is a lot more moral (i feel u baek), but when you read it from Chanyeols perspective, you realise how different it is for him, how his world isn't at all the same as Baekhyuns. I am EXTREMELY interested to see how the world is after the dark side wins!!! This is the first time I read a work with such a setting and it's making me super excited.
All in all I want to really thank the author for creating such an amazing story and setting. (I have had multiple daydreams in this universe now, with all kinds of characters turning slytherin oooofff my soul)

Chapter 8: Oh no this part was so angsty and sad : ( I feel so bad for the both of them but like always, you portrayed the tension between them extremely well and nothing seemed cheesy or out of place at all. I really love the development and depth between Baekhyun and Chanyeol thus far and I have no doubt that you'll continue to let us explore more of their characterization in the future

Chapter 6: I'm laughing at the fact that Jongin managed to enchant Kyungsoo's remembrall - that's so clever and I'm glad you made Jongin mischievous because it really suits him in this AU and makes his and Kyungsoo's interactions super entertaining to read. I can't believe Kyungsoo got the Hufflepuffs and Gryffindors into a house war though (or actually, more like I can but didn't expect it) and I love it so much

I also really like how you manage to shift perspectives between Baekhyun and Chaneyeol + the other Slytherins because I notice that a lot of the times, it comes off as abrupt and awkward when many authors do it, yet when you do it, the transition is smooth and well-written rather than choppy and disruptive to the flow. You do a wonderful job with progressing the storyline without adding any unnecessary or "what is this" kind of scenes, so A++

Also I can't wait to see the next confrontation/conversation scene between Baekhyun and Chanyeol after the curse wlkerjlbllwer I'm too excited to read this he l p
