A/N: For slumber's birthday! I love you, Slumberteenyweenylovepretty! *pinches cheeks* :D
First, Blaise was with Draco, and Theodore watched.
Blaise and Draco’s romance was short and intense. They put up with various girls - especially Pansy - whinging about sexy Slytherin boys not being supposed to hook up with each other, because that would mean less sexy Slytherin boys for these girls to hook up with. They put up with jeers and insults from various people, who hadn’t ever seen two boys walking just a bit too close to each other before. Strangely enough, it was mostly from Gryffindors. Theodore had always thought of them as an open-minded bunch; they even put up with mudbloods.
Of course, there were those other girls as well, who kept hinting to Blaise and Draco that they should kiss often and publicly. They had a predatory gleam in their eyes, and Theodore though they were a bit scary. Funnily enough, most of those were from Gryffindor as well.
Theodore could not stress enough that that romance was very intense. Often, their dorm mates had to shout about silencing charms - sometimes more than once per night. It bothered neither Blaise nor Draco very much. Theodore knew this, because he watched. And because he watched, he also knew why it didn’t last. Sometimes, Draco would go overboard. What could have been a nice snogging session in a hallway became an acid fight about the ten minutes of the day that Blaise hadn’t spent with Draco. Their dorm mates had to yell about silencing charms less and less - not because they’d learned, but because more often than not, one of them had run off after a violent fight.
Since Theodore watched, he knew that Draco was all too controlling, and he knew that Blaise couldn’t stand that.
After Draco, it was Justin Finch-Fletchley, and Theodore resumed watching.
Blaise’s romance with Justin Finch-Fletchley was both longer and less intense. People didn’t say much, because they were used to two boys walking just a bit too close to each other, or maybe it was just because one of the boys was a Hufflepuff, and no one except a Slytherin would pick on a Hufflepuff. The Slytherins were long since used to Blaise, and some of them were relieved that they didn’t have to listen to two boys having sex just a few metres away.
Justin Finch-Fletchley was a lot calmer than Draco was, and since Theodore watched, he knew that that was his downfall. Blaise began looking at other people again, and sometimes, it was as though he didn’t have a boyfriend at all. Blaise flirted with the first years, and even though everyone knew it wasn’t serious - even Blaise wouldn’t go that far - it was still a dramatic change. When he had been with Draco, he wouldn’t even pretend that other people existed.
But Justin turned a blind eye to everything Blaise did, and while most people said that that was the only reason why their relationship lasted as long as it did, but Theodore watched, so he knew that it was the main reason why it ended.
Seamus Finnigan’s skills in bed might have been another big factor in their breaking up, but Theodore hadn’t watched that, so he wasn’t sure.
Seamus Finnigan was the first one Theodore felt a little threatened by. Seamus Finnigan spent almost as much time watching Blaise as Theodore himself did. And Seamus Finnigan got to do a lot more to Blaise than watch him, so Theodore felt that Seamus Finnigan should keep his eyes to himself, at least.
Theodore didn’t do anything about it, though, because he could see it wouldn’t last. Seamus Finnigan wasn’t too controlling, like Draco had been, and he didn’t make Blaise feel as though it didn’t matter, like Justin Finch-Fletchley had, but he was... well, he was too Gryffindor. Theodore’s first impulse was to say too stupid, but he was man enough to know that it was more to it than that. It was the recklessness, the mudblood-associating, and the general good-at-heart-ness, as well.
After Seamus Finnigan, there was no one worth mentioning for a long while. Theodore just had to sit back and watch, and learn. He learned from the week-long relationships, and he learned from the times Blaise was alone. Once, he accidentally walked in on Blaise and another boy during something that would later appear to be a one-night-stand, and though he didn’t learn anything from that, it gave him a nice image he liked to think about late at night, early in the morning and when he showered.
Some day, Theodore will grow tired of just watching Blaise, because there are so many more things he could do to Blaise. When he does, he will be the perfect boyfriend. He won’t be as controlling as Draco was. He won’t be as blind as Justin Finch-Fletchley was. He will be better than Ernie Macmillan, Harry Potter, Colin Creevey, and all the rest put together.
Blaise can hardly wait.
