Summary: James gets a kick out of his Prefect duties.

The Perks of Being a Prefect
by meiface

The best thing about being a Prefect, thought James as he twirled his wand and leered at the boy shooting him a venomous glare, was having every excuse to wander into the dungeons in the middle of the night and pin unsuspecting Slytherins to the walls.

"Have I told you recently," Scorpius said with narrowed eyes, "how much I loathe you?"

James only grinned. "Tell me again, Malfoy," he said as he leaned closer. "But remember I'll be having ten points from Slytherin for violating curfew."

Scorpius set his mouth and said nothing, though he continued glaring at his captor, who kept him pinned. There was a mutinous look in his blue eyes and James had no doubt that, come morning, his little brother would be on his case about inappropriate Prefect behaviour, and taking liberties with his authority, and all sorts of rot to defend the honour of Slytherin House and his very best friend.

What a joke. James snickered, enjoying how Scorpius's eyes flickered to his mouth and then away. "Going to run tattling to Albus?" he taunted softly, dropping his mouth near Scorpius' ear and feeling him tense up under his robes.

"No," Scorpius said stiffly. "But I'd like to return to my dormitories now, if you'd please."

James scowled at his words. He should be taking pleasure from making the boy uncomfortable, for catching him out after curfew (thanks to the trusty Map Teddy had given him just last year), for taking points, but it was no fun if he couldn't provoke some sort of reaction from that uppity little Slytherin. Playing polite, was he?

James's wand found its tip digging into the pale skin of Scorpius's throat. "Or you could stay here," James suggested, his voice as dark as his eyes. He stared at Scorpius, gauging and measuring each flicker of muscle, each tremble of eyelash.

"No, thank you," Scorpius said, and this time his reply was given between gritted teeth. He shoved forward unexpectedly and, surprised, James was thrown off balance, staggering backwards. Scorpius stepped away from the wall and swept past him into the dark corridor, heading back towards the Slytherin common room.

"Oi," James shouted after him, unaccountably tense, his skin prickling with sensation. Scorpius ignored him and disappeared into the blackness.

James swore, anger building at the excited thump of his heart, the rush of cornering that insufferable, prissy Malfoy. He ran a hand through his unkempt hair and then rubbed his eyes. It was late; he should finish up his rounds and get to bed.

"Fifteen bloody points from Slytherin," he muttered to himself as he stomped down the hall in the opposite direction.

I like this! I can easily see them as a couple! Actually now that I've read this I really want to read more of this couple!

It's always fic that converts me to new pairings, too! :D I'm glad this works for you.

You know, I like Bully!James. It...fits his namesake. *ducks in anticipation of Jamesfen backlash*

Anyway. Cute story! I think it seems like AS/S and James/Scorpius at the same time, really. Good job!

Someone asked me how such a bully!James could make Prefect, and I countered with how the first James could've made Prefect and Head Boy with all the trouble he gets into. Hee. But I like 'em troublesome, I think, and maybe eventually Scorpius will too. (Reminding me that I want to write some actual AS/S too.)

But thank you!

Oh, this is so cute! James is just like the original, and so very cute, and... I love this! *squeees*

Lovely work!

James was not only named after his grandpa, but managed to grow up like him too! ;) Glad you enjoyed!

It's an intruging pairing, I confess, much to the guilt of my newborn but fierce AS/S fangirl.

I know! Esp with Albus as the bestfriend, which I feel, (looking back on his kinda wuss-like behaviour in DH) is where he belongs. Not that he isn't bad ass now, since he's been in Slytherin for five years. But James just radiates *sociopathic behaviour, watch out* but on a level that keeps things interesting.

All Smiles
James being evil just became a very good thing. This was superb- what James notices and Scorpius's reaction; the gritted teeth, No thank you, and James commenting on that. The "Oi." He's such a git but within reason- he wants a reaction from Scorpius (I would say he wants him to want it).

And it was so hot. Okay, so I love the relationships you set up. Albus in Slytherin, Scorpius being such a Malfoy but totally loveable (from my view) and James using the map and power to his advantage. And yet I really really like him, much more than I did in the epilogue. So please write more. I'm going to add you to my f-list. Going to add this post to my favorites.

I was leaning back in my chair still feeling like I should go sit down. Hmm...is Rose in Ravenclaw? Do they know anyone in Hufflepuff?

Re: All Smiles
You flatter me! Thank you for the lengthy comment--it makes me very :D. I'm so glad you enjoyed the short little ficlet and whatever characterization I managed to cram into it, heh. I'm definitely interested in writing more for the pairing! Let's see where it goes...

gossymer sent me here. :D I'm beginning my indoctrination into the cult of Scorpius/James and this was a perfect component. Only one fault: too short! D:

My brain rebels at the thought of breaking 1000 words. I am clearly dysfunctional about writing, an obstacle I am laboriously trying to overcome. :D In the meantime, you can always try your hand at it! ::would love to see some J/S from you::

HarryDraco was always adorable in that, trying to gauge who is on top way... but I've always been a sucker for Harry top, so JamesScorpius is basically my orgasmic ship from heaven. It would be nicer if James had Harry's eyes, but then again, I always did want to see Harry'sDadJames slashsmut (I was just never too into the whole necrophilia, or backstory thing) and I suppose this is sort of like that.

In my dirty little mind I like to pretend that, parent generation, since Snape was the same grade as James and Lucius was apparently either 5/6/7 year (Prefect) when they were 1st, that the reverse of JamesScorpius happened... aka LuciusJames. And that James grew jealous of Snape for having Lucius's affections later and started to bully Snape, and then decided to take Snape's love interest in revenge.

Everything is explained by the ghei, I swear.

But yeah.

I think that if Albus-Severus's name didn't turn me off so much, I would like AS/S more but... yeah one weird-as-fuck name in a ship is enough (thank you Scorpius...)

LOL IVY. You're right. All the drama of the MWPP era (and probably in the HP canon era too) can be explained by the ghei. I sort of am fond of the idea of Lucius/James. Oooh, Lucius, all my love for you is blamed on Jason Isaacs. Totally.

James/Scorpius intrigues me the more I think about it. But I ship AS/S too. I kinda wanna see a fic where it's brother vs. brother for Scorpius, only James is in Utter Denial about it at the same time. :D
