Pairing Whore Penguins

Hers to Command (NC-17; Luna/Millicent; 1511 words)

My poll-takers prompted me with Luna and Millicent: a magical myth. Highlight to view inspiring myth (SPOILERS): The myth from which I took inspiration concerns Gyges of Lydia's bodyguard, Candaules, to whom the king showed his wife during an intimate moment. Discovering her husband's betrayal, the queen gave Candaules the choice of murdering her husband or being put to death, and Candaules, with essentially Slytherin pragmatism, elected to live and claim queen and kingdom for himself. The tale isn't necessarily a magical one, but Millicent's is, and that's close enough for me. :P

Summary: Millicent finds favour with Queen's favourite—and puts herself at risk to protect it.
