FIC: to taste your beating heart (James/Teddy, R)

My entry for the 2019 [community profile] hp_darkarts My Bloody Valentine Mini-fest! I have really found myself drawn to darker themes and content of late, so this fest was right up my alley. There’s a lot of fluff for this particular pairing, and I had far too much fun writing a much... darker take on their relationship. ;)

Title: to taste your beating heart
Author: [personal profile] gracerene
Pairing: James Sirius/Teddy, mention of past Teddy/Victoire
Rating: Mature
Word Count: ~2,200
Content/Warnings: Graphic Depictions of Violence, obsession, blood & gore, dark!fic, mentally unstable James, non-consensual kissing, dark magic, pining, unrequited love, ambiguous/open ending, possible character death
Summary: All James had ever wanted was Teddy's heart.
Notes: Title is from Howl by Florence + The Machine. Thanks so much to the lovely [personal profile] shiftylinguini for not even flinching when I told her what I'd done to our boys and then asked her to beta read it! And thank you so much to the lovely [personal profile] writcraft for modding this fun mini-fest and providing a safe fandom space to explore darker themes and content. You are both the bee's knees! (Going with the apparently universally accepted knowledge that bee's knees are super awesome… like you!)

Please do mind the warnings. This was written for a dark fest and is very different from my usual fare. I have ticked the "Choose Not to Use Archive Warnings" box in addition to including the above tags, so there could possibly be additional dark content. You're responsible for your own consumption of content. Thanks!
