Summary: Teddy already stands out enough being an orphan, a Metamorphmagus, and the son of a werewolf—nobody needs to know he's also bisexual. He's attracted to women too, so it's not a lie if he ends up married to a witch, has children, and settles down to live a perfectly normal and unremarkable life. But when he's offered the chance to experience what it's like to have strings-free sex with a man, he's powerless to resist temptation. Even if he knows there's no such thing as sex without strings when it comes to fooling around with one's best mate.
Notes: I love these two boys to pieces, and it was oodles of fun to have a chance to write something nice and meaty for my favourite Next Gen Pairing! Thanks so much to shiftylinguini and writcraft for the beta, and to the mods for hosting this fest!
Title is from the quote by Howard Thurman: "Don't ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
