    I really want an Ever After: A Cinderella Story moment at the end of the Plated Prisoner series. (I’m on the third book).

    I want Slade and Auren to marry in secret and Midas to come looking for Auren and Slade going “Oh have you met my wife?” And Auren appears and tells Midas that she will not think about him ever again and then she just turns him into gold.

    [Yes, I know that's not quite how the myth goes.]

    The Hand of Midas

    Wondrous Item, Artifact, requires attunement by a creature missing a hand

    Legends tell of a greedy king who wished for everything he touched to turn to gold. After realizing the error of his wish, he cut off his hands to be free of the curse. This golden prosthetic is supposedly one of those hands, though if that is the case, its power has been much diminished in the years since. This is likely for the best, but it remains an accursed weapon of greed.

    The prosthetic attaches at the elbow, and once attached, it cannot be removed. To attune to the item, you must hold it against your arm for the entire attunement period. The prosthetic is a fully capable part of your body, whether you are currently attuned to it or not. While attuned, you can use the hand’s other abilities: Golden Touch and Aurification.

    [The Hand of Midas can easily be a glove or gauntlet instead of a prosthetic if that suits your game better, but it still cannot be removed.]

    Golden Touch: While attuned to the Hand of Midas, you can use your action to transmute one nonmagical object small enough to hold in that hand into solid gold for 24 hours. Only one object may be affected by this ability at a time. If you use it while another object is affected, that object immediately returns to its original composition. While transmuted, the object radiates a faint aura of transmutation if examined with a Detect Magic spell or similar effect.

    [Gold weighs about twice as much as iron or other mundane metals, three times as much as stone, and four times as much as wood. Gold is worth 50 gp per pound.]

    You can also use the Hand of Midas to make melee weapon attacks as though it were a light melee weapon with the finesse property. The Hand must be empty for you to attack with it. The Hand of Midas deals 1d4 force damage on a hit if the target is a living creature, as it transmutes part of their flesh into gold. Each hit with the Hand creates an amount of gold worth a number of gp equal to the force damage dealt by the attack, which falls to the ground in the target’s space.

    Aurification: If you reduce a creature to 0 HP using your Golden Touch attack, you may use your reaction to transmute the victim’s body into gold. The creature’s body and all nonmagical items it is wearing or carrying melt into a lump of solid gold worth a number of gp equal to the creature’s maximum hit points. Once you use this property, you can’t use it again until you complete a long rest.

    Cursed: The Hand of Midas is cursed, and attuning to it extends the curse to you. While cursed, you gain the following flaw: “I am willing to sacrifice innocents to make a profit.”

    If you go a week without using Aurification on a creature with a CR equal to half your level or greater, your body slowly starts to turn to gold, starting from the Hand and spreading up your arm to the rest of your body. Once this effect begins, you must roll 1d4 after completing a long rest and permanently reduce your maximum hit points by the amount rolled. If your maximum hit points are reduced to zero, you permanently transform into a golden statue. Using Aurification does not reverse this loss of HP, but it does restore the one-week grace period.

    Remove Curse is ineffective against this curse. It can only be reversed by a Wish, Divine Intervention, or by the user forsaking all worldly possessions and taking a vow of poverty. When the curse is broken, the user’s maximum hit points are restored and the Hand detaches from their arm.

    I've started reading the Plated Prisoner series and I had a thought about Midas and how he treats Auren. (I'm on the second book now I'm almost 200 pages in so please no spoilers)

    There's a bit of dialogue from the DC animated film Teen Titans: Judas Contract that comes to mind. It's when Damian is talking to one of the characters about the bad guy who's groomed them since they were a child and it kept playing in my head. So here's the dialogue:

    Damian: "He's lying to you. About Everything."

    Tara: "He had you pegged from the start."

    Damian: "That's how he does it. Mixing truth with lies."

    Tara: "You're so freaking annoying. You don't know anything about him. He saved me."

    Damian: "Let me guess, he kept you isolated. Dependent. Told you everyone was your enemy. Trained you ruthlessly. And promised you exactly what you wanted."

    Midas has kept Auren isolated in that cage, promising to protect her, and making her believe (especially after how she was treated as a child) that the world was her enemy. It's kept her loyal. Where I'm at Auren is slowly starting to see that Midas might not be who he says he is, but she's still so brainwashed by him that she still wants to be loyal to him. Everyone thinks she's so special because he made her gold, but no one ever stopped to think that she's being just as abused as they are. And I think that's what's sad is that Auren has been groomed and is loyal to a man who is abusive and vile, but doesn't want to fight for her freedom from him because of this supposed "safety" he's given her. When in all reality she's a prisoner in the place she's supposed to call home with a man who supposedly "loves" her. When she's offered the slightest bit of kindness she sees it as someone having an ulterior motive because that's all she's been taught.

    I feel like Auren and Rip are gonna have a similar conversation, but we'll see how well it goes compared to how this conversation went in the movie.

    The Four Horsemen

    by Kami Wolf

    Severus Tobias Snape has never had an easy life. His father is a scumbag, his mother a broken drunkard, and he has been abused since his first memory. He finally found his place in Hogwarts; a place where he can learn and apply his knowledge the way he wanted. He knows exactly where the line between light and darkness lies; and he plans in crossing it without question. Knowledge doesn’t have any colour, and the hunger he feels would not stop until he has it all. His housemates can be pompous purebloods, but they have connections that he needs to get out of that hell he calls family.

    Regulus Arcturus Black doesn’t have a way out, he has been damned since birth just because of his family; however, the moment his big brother decided he wasn’t worth saving, his life was over. Blood is thicker than water, it doesn’t matter if your family is crazier than a psychopath, a Black is always loyal to his house. Even if his brother betrayed him, he would love him until his last breath. He doesn’t have voice or vote in his future, and he just doesn’t care anymore.

    Vestia Mida Zabini is the oldest twin of the both, Italian daughter through and through. She is passionate and fierce; her love is strong and wild, even for a Slytherin girl. She and her sister doesn’t need to speak to understand each other; and she is the voice of her mute sister. Quidditch is her passion, and being the best beater duo with her sister is her highest accomplishment. She doesn’t care for marriage or being a proper lady, she just wants to play Quidditch and be the best no matter what.

    Venus Thea Zabini is the youngest twin of the both. She was born mute, but her sister understands her even without a voice, and that is enough for her. She is calm and poise, an airhead some people would say, but she knows better. She doesn’t care too much about anything, except for her sister’s wishes; so, she does anything to help her with that. Being good at Quidditch comes as a side effect thanks to the powerful twin’s link, and beat one or two Gryffindor is a wonderful plus.

    @goldsghost​ continued from here

              Jaw clenches, tongue running along the back of his teeth as arms cross over his chest. It’s an ACT, meant to rile him up — && yet, being aware of that doesn’t seem to DAMPEN the effect in the slightest. Spencer was not a man who enjoyed SHARING his lovers, && sometimes he wondered if Midas entertained others purely to piss him off. It wouldn’t surprise him — the golden man’s entire existence in life seemed to center around INFURIATING those around him. It worked, more than Spencer would like to ADMIT.

              His eyes FLASH at the implication that something had happened after he’d left the room — he knows it’s all FALSE, deception meant to boil his veins && push his buttons. Midas enjoyed seeing him like this, derived great pleasure from the POWER he held over his emotions — && Spencer HATED IT. Gambling is what landed him here, cheating too much in the wrong places, && yet one man with a golden eye && no soul could play him so EFFICIENTLY as if he was a beginner’s keyboard. He hated every second of it, && yet could never get ENOUGH of it.

              Silently, he closes the distance between them in just a few strides, sliding EASILY into the older man’s lap. It’s a familiar dance, this — Midas riles his up, gets his blood PUMPING, && Spencer falls for every bit of until he’s writhing beneath him on a bed of GOLDEN SHEETS. Steady fingers easily pluck the glass from golden ones, for a BRIEF moment considering dropping it && allowing it to shatter at their feet only to brush the thought aside — he could get his point across WITHOUT creating needless mess. Once his hand is free, he uses it to tilt the other’s chin up EVER SO SLIGHTLY, leaning in until their breaths are mingling but their lips are not quite touching.

            { ♜ } ❛❛ I do not like to share, Midas. ❜❜ It’s quiet, almost a WHISPER, && brown eyes sparking with IRRITATION && HUNGER meet cocky && infuriating milky white && gold. He holds his gaze for a moment before glancing away && shifting, pressing closer until they’re CHEST TO CHEST. His hand slides to very LOOSELY wrap his fingers around a heavily inked neck, face shifting so his mouth is instead brushing Midas’ ear. ❛❛ Have you ever stopped to consider what might happen if I decided I’ve had enough?? ❜❜ Word choice is DELIBERATE — he’s hardly threatening murder, but it’s meant to sound like so on purpose.

              He lets the manufactured THREAT linger between them for several moments before he pulls back, shifting to make it seem as if he’s intending to slide off of Midas’ lap. ❛❛ You’re not the only man who wants me, Midas. You’re not even the only with a dead eye. ❜❜

    @goldsghost​ continued from here

              In just a few SHORT days, Midas has become a major source of frustration for Spencer. It was very OBVIOUS that he was playing the government like a fiddle, && yet his connections with the CIA made him virtually UNTOUCHABLE. It was infuriating, even more so when his previous attempt at INTIMIDATION, at letting the criminal know he wasn’t as SLICK as he thought, had gone NOWHERE. Midas had seemed more AMUSED than anything, && it didn’t seem as if anything he’d said had done any bit of good — it was like he’d been OUTSMARTED ( not like, he definitely had been ) && that was something he was far from used to.

              Of course it wouldn’t matter to a GENIUS criminal that someone in the FBI knew he was a fake; the CIA was way over the bureau’s head, they might as well be in space.

              The realization that it wasn’t his FRUSTRATION at losing that had kept the other man on his mind came as a surprise; while thinking about Midas certainly brought a feeling of irritation with it, there was a more prominent sense of INTRIGUE that overpowered everything else. It was quite obvious that Midas was some sort of GENIUS — he’d have to be, to pull the wool over the eyes of the CIA — && the short peek he’d been able to get at the man’s file only confirmed suspicions of his intelligence. For once, Spencer had met a criminal with whom he was on EQUAL GROUND, && this fascinated him, as much as he’d HATED to admit it.

              There was more to it than fascination, but Spencer was far from willing to admit that.

              So he finds himself outside Midas’ mansion once again, having decided there was no other way to get this INFURIATING man off of his mind if he didn’t speak with him. It’s all he’d been able to think about for DAYS, && it’s been throwing off his work, his FUNCTIONALITY. All he could think about was how easily his accusations had been swept aside — how easily he’d been OUTMATCHED.

              He’s deep in his thoughts when the door opens && words come TUMBLING from his lips before he can even finish processing the situation. As soon as that COCKY smirk lights up the criminal’s face, as soon as that stupid reply comes in that STUPID cool, self assured tone, a week’s worth of indignation rises to the surface again — why was this man so damn INFURIATING?? He was smart && he knew it && Spencer would hate it if they weren’t so similar, at least in parts. An offer to come inside is given && the genius stares at the ground as he shuffles his way inside, REFUSING to acknowledge the smug look in Midas’ golden eye. Everything about this man was equal parts intriguing && infuriating, && he didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of seeing said irritation played out in his own expression.

              Let’s talk. Spencer hadn’t actually thought about what he’d say if he’d gotten this far, && when he turns to meet Midas’ gaze again, there’s a brief moment where his thoughts QUIET, usually mouthy genius searching for some way to start this off when the connotations his greeting had implied are hardly what he’d meant ( at least, not on the surface; any attraction had been shoved deep down && is currently being IGNORED ). It’s almost DIFFICULT to think through the cloud of IRRITATION, && he instead takes a moment to find a seat && try to regain control of his emotions. He follows Midas with a CALCULATED gaze for a few moments, eyes narrowed slightly in thought; he’s a hard man to read, something Spencer found to be quite RARE. Reading others was supposed to be his strong suit, && yet it was hard for him to figure out what exactly Midas was thinking under the air of SUPERIORITY.

            { ♜ } ❛❛ You are probably one of the only men I’ve met who is equal parts infuriating and fascinating. ❜❜ Said without thinking, something that’s already becoming a PATTERN around the golden eyed man. He leans forward, bracing himself with his elbows on his knees && hands lacing together in front of him, still studying the other man closely. ❛❛ You’re so smug, all the time, but there’s more to you than what you let on. ❜❜
