After making his circuit of the island, Drake shimmered into the library, a place he always felt at home. It was closed for the day, but that was how he wanted. He didn't want anyone else around when made his exit. "Best year of my life," he murmured to himself. It was a statement of fact, not an attempt to reassure himself. He'd spent two hundred years in the Underworld, but from the day he was hatched he was the most undemony demon that ever did demon. He'd venture into the mortal world to explore the libraries and museums and just to watch the people go about their lives. He envied them their love and joy, something a demon could never know. He had a human shape, but not a human heart or a human soul, but still he found humans absolutely fascinating.

Back in the Underworld, he'd been ordered to do all manner of evil acts, including innocents and witches and anyone the Source felt threatened by or wanted out of the way. More than once he'd been threatened with death for refusing to obey, but he'd always found some way to worm out of it, even if it just meant running for his life. He'd latched on to Cole soon after they'd met, intrigued by the half-demon and trying to make sure he remembered that part of him and treasured his human blood. He hadn't been successful in making Cole turn his back on the Underworld, but he'd kept that spark of humanity alive until a pretty little witch could truly ignite the fire.

Of course, it hadn't gone completely well for Cole, and now his friend was trapped in limbo, though he wasn't entirely bound and helpless. And when Cole had come to him with the bargain the Sorcerer was offering, he'd jumped at the chance. Cole didn't trust the Sorcerer, but Drake was more than willing to take the chance. A year of life with a soul, and all he had to do was not use his powers for evil. No problem. He never had, and he never would. And he'd sucked the marrow out of life, just like he told his students, over that year. Fandom had been the perfect place to live those days out.

And now that year was over. He had no regrets, but as cheerful as he was, there was sadness, too. He was going to miss teaching and the friends he had made, and he desperately hoped that wherever he ended up now, he could still check in on them from time to time.

Drake was packing up his office, setting Delirium's psychedelic frogs aside for Karla and trying to decide what to do with his framed autographs from Merlin and Arthur. But the music was still cheery -- today's selection included Abbacadabra.

The door was open.
carpe_demon: (Come with me if you want to live)
Drake had set up camp in the living room, watching over wee Wyatt and baby Chris and Piper's still body. He was so very tempted to make popcorn as he discretely watched Piper's spirit snapping at Cole as he tried to explain to her what was going on.

("I'm not quite sure what's so hard to grasp," Cole said. "Love transcends every plane of existence. All you need to do is believe in it with every fiber of your being and just send it out to Leo.")

Drake beamed. He'd totally taught Cole that. )

[NFB due to distance. Dialogue swiped from "The Seven Year Witch," and altered to remove some of the stupid comments like "Gee, Wyatt's a Whitelighter? With the orbing and the healing we never would've guessed!" God, writers.]
carpe_demon: (How much for the woman?)
After shaking down the Book of Shadows failed to produce anything useful on the "finding a Whitelighter turned Elder whose been sent to Earth with his memory erased because the other Elders are douches" front, Drake headed back downstairs with Phoebe and Paige. He already knew what they'd find -- Piper's body sprawled on the stairs -- but he put on his best shocked face.

"Piper?" Phoebe said, stopping as she saw her sister's body.

"Oh my god!" Paige cried.

Well, this can't be good. )
carpe_demon: (I'm adorable and I know it)
In accordance with prophecy Cole's plans, Drake had convinced Paige to bring the demon home to meet the family. Piper and Phoebe had been skeptical of his intentions, but Wyatt seemed to like Drake well enough, and the lack of shields going up was a good sign. As was his ability to fondle the Book of shadows. He also got a good meal out of the deal and a hell of a lot of flirting with Phoebe. He could see what Cole saw in her.

The next morning, however, Piper's husband was Leo-napped by the Elders, who wanted to pass judgment on his recent activities in, oh, trying to remake the world. (There'd been a lot of facepalming from Drake when Cole had told him about what the Charmed Ones had done when they teamed up with the Avatars.) Piper fretted, Phoebe threatened to go on strike, and then an Elder came down to inform them that Leo had had his memories erased and was put back on Earth as a mortal so that he could find his destiny.

This didn't go over well, of course. )

Drake was probably about the only person on the island not disturbed by the singing bugs. In fact, he'd been singing along with them into the wee hours of the night, probably much to the dismay of his neighbors.

Of course, now he'd been earwormed and felt compelled to keep singing:

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call
I am your angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your angel


He was also wondering how much trouble he would get in if he unleashed some of the bugs into air vents in Anakin's office. Maybe he could teach them to sing Lady Gaga, too.

Unlike some of his fellow teachers, Drake had no crack in his office to fall into. He was, however, apparently talking to himself (unless one could see spirits).

"Thorn demons? That's your plan? Are you sure about that?"

"Well, I suppose if the Elders are being pricks, you might as well use demon ones against them."

"Of course I'm still in. You don't even have to ask me twice, buddy. I totally owe you for this year, plus it's all in the name of love. That's kind of my thing if you haven't been paying attention."

"All right, next weekend I'm there. I'll talk to Paige about taking me home for a visit. Don't worry, I won't tell her what's up."
carpe_demon: (O RLY?)
There was no ABBA blasting from Drake's office today.

Instead, it was Lady Gaga.

I wanna hold em' like they do in Texas please
Fold em' let em' hit me raise it baby stay with me (I love it)
Luck and intuition play the cards with spades to start
And after he's been hooked I'll play the one that's on his heart


There may have been the occasional bubble floating out the door as well. Pay it no mind.
carpe_demon: (I'm rocking out)
Drake was in his office as per usual on Thursdays. Today, however, was ABBA day, and he was singing along with the music.

"Don't go wasting your emotion...
Lay all your love on me!
Don't go sharing your devotion...
Lay all your love on me!"

"Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)" was next in the playlist.
carpe_demon: (I have a charming smile)
Drake had been having troubling dreams, like most of the island.

Except his didn't revolve around dead people. Last night he'd dreamed that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had invited him over...to babysit their vast brood of children. Not that he didn't mind the kids, but he thought it was going to be a dirty dream until they'd left on a date.

Sigh, always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
carpe_demon: (This bed is too small)
Drake had had a busy night. Tired Drake was tired.

Drake totally wasn't napping during his office hours, really. He was just deep in thought.
carpe_demon: (A dancing demon? No something isn't righ)
Drake was in his office, and had been all morning, really.

He totally hadn't shimmered out to catch an epic tennis match at Wimbledon.

And he certainly hadn't used his powers to affect who won each game. Why, the very idea was ridiculous.
carpe_demon: (Why is there pudding on the ceiling?)
Drake was in his office, working on outline for his final class.

He had 80's music cranked to 11. (That music coming from Anakin's office was...interesting, but not to his tastes.)
carpe_demon: (A dancing demon? No something isn't righ)
Drake was abusing the school's network to download the entire first season of meta for Glee.

And yes, he was cranking the music to near obnoxiously loud levels. Particular the Madonna and Lady Gaga songs. And if he had more time left, he definitely would've formed a Fandom Glee Club.

Since he was just across and down the hall from Anakin's office, it probably wasn't improving his mood much.
carpe_demon: (I'm adorable and I know it)
Drake was in his office, idly browsing the web for recipes. He wanted to cook a gourmet meal before he kicked the bucket, and cuisses de grenouilles a la creme was looking good.
carpe_demon: (Drake is a drake)
Drake had been wandering through the park, still mulling over what he could or couldn't possibly achieve on his bucket list. Was it cheating to change some of the items?

Then he was gone, and there was a mallard in his place.

Drake was now a male duck...otherwise known as a drake.

Fandom thought it was funny.
carpe_demon: (I'm giving this some thought)
Drake was in his office, hard at work updating his bucket list.

Drake arrived at his office Thursday morning to find it filled with flowers. "HI DRAKE!" they said in cheery unison.

"So has the island decided to give flower power a try?" Drake said, making sure his chair was clear of flowers before he sat down. "I approve."

"PICK US AND GIVE US TO SOMEONE YOU LOVE!" a nearby gerbera daisy suggested, then sighed happily as Drake ruffled its petals.

"That may take awhile," Drake said. Then he grinned and asked, "So, do you little guys like to sing?"

"OH YES!" the flowers said happily.

Drake snapped his fingers and conjured up a CD player. "All right, pay close attention," he said. "Listen and learn, my floral minions. I'm going to teach you the best songs to sing."

The flowers cheered, then leaned in as Drake taught them his love song playlist, which included "Everything I do (I Do It For You)," "My Heart Will Go On," "I Will Always Love You," "The Wind Beneath My Wings," "Can't Smile Without You," "Hopelessly Devoted To You," "I Just Called To Say I Love You," "I Got You Babe," "Light Up My Life," "Tonight I Celebrate My Love," "Let's Get It On," "Love Me Tender," and, of course, "Kiss From a Rose."
carpe_demon: (I have a charming smile)
Drake was in a fairly good mood (well, as always), so he had disco hits of the 70s cranked up as he puttered about his office.
carpe_demon: (More slashy!)
Interested in being a TA? Romance 101 wants you. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get your very own thread in every post.

Comments are screened and I'll RNG Drake's newest minions (if necessary) in Sunday.

ETA: We can haz a winner, but if the class goes over 20 I'll add a second TA to sneak one more person in.
