I Wanna See Your Peacock

Written for Lamia of the Dark's Return of the Daily Weird Prompt Thing

Prompt - Lucius is a peacock animagus

A/N: Narcissa is in the mood for love, but gets a surprise when Lucius misinterprets the meaning of her advances.

Based on the song Peacock by Katy Perry.


Even in the wizarding world some of our music and trends make it through, such as the time Narcissa started carrying a Cerberus puppy in her purse because all the rich celebrities were doing it. This time it was music that had caught her attention.

There was one station on the wireless that played popular muggle music. There weren't many in the wizarding world who listened to it. It was mostly for people like Arthur Weasley who had unusual tastes in music, and were curious about what kind of music the muggles were listening to.

One day, Narcissa turned on the wireless and heard a song called Peacock playing on the muggle music station. She listened to it, and immediately fell in love with it. It had such a catchy, upbeat rhythm. And as she listened to it, she started thinking of her husband.

A seductive smile spread across her lips. This song was putting her in the mood.

She brought her husband into the bedroom while the song was still playing, then tapped the wireless with her wand to lock the song in place, making it play on a loop.

"Do you hear that, Lucius?" she cooed, pulling him close and running her hands across his chest. "It sounds lovely, doesn't it?" She paused, her eyes dark with lust as she gazed up at him. "Does it give you any ideas, darling?"

Lucius looked confused. He stared at the wireless, listening to the bizarre music playing. He didn't understand his wife's interest in these strange muggle trends. And now she had moved on to music. What's next? Muggle fashion trends? Merlin forbid. The last thing he needed was his wife running around town in a tank top and jeans

"Luicus," she breathed. "Do you know what I want?"

He looked back at her, his mind racing as he desperately tried to figure out what it was she wanted. He listened to the music, and heard the woman on the wireless singing about a peacock.

A peacock? What kind of muggle nonsense was this?

Poor Lucius felt more confused than ever. What his wife wanted and what the song was about didn't seem to match.

"You want to see my peacock?" he asked, hoping that was the right thing to say.

"Yes, darling," Narcissa replied. Then she leaned in close, whispering in his ear, "Show me your peacock, Lucius."

Lucius swallowed hard, then took a deep breath. "Alright then."

He took a step back, his wife watching him with anticipation. There was a brief pause, then Lucius vanished right before her very eyes, and a magnificent peacock appeared in his place.

Narcissa's eyes widened, her mouth opening in shock. "Lucius?"

The large bird cocked his head to the side, giving her a questioning look. Wasn't this what she wanted? She said she wanted to see his peacock, so he showed it to her.
