    Summary

    That night, 1984

    Steve sits at the kitchen table, a pack of frozen carrots wrapped in a tea towel against his swollen purple face. "I'm fine," he says. It’s over. They fought the monsters, and they won. Now he can rest.

    Except in real life, the credits don't roll, and they don't get to skip ahead to Christmas.

    Summary

    “The rhythm of the city. You know. Tempo. This city’s got a beat. You gotta hook into it. Once you got the beat, you can do anything.”
    “I can?”
    “Absitively posolutely!”

    It's early March of 1988. Wakko Warner was separated from his siblings about two years ago, but he kept one thing in mind: they would meet at their old home, the place they lived before their parents died. By the time he's made it to New York City, he's determined to get his family back together again, whatever it takes. But that family might just be a little bit bigger than he imagined.

    Summary

    'Grabbing the cleaning stuff from behind the counter, Mara walks around towards the table, not looking where she’s going at all, and immediately regretting it when she crashes into someone and feels the oddly familiar feeling of icing down her front.

    “Oh, I’m so sorry,” a woman’s voice, nervously polite, and Mara looks up to say that it’s okay and finds her words stuck in her throat. Standing in front of her, clutching a crushed cake box, is a 5’11 goddess of a woman, blurting out polite apologies.'

    Or, how Mara and Hope crash into one another in a small town in the 80's, and fall in love.

    Summary

    -Mirtilli. Mirtilli idiota. Mirtilli. Pensa ai mirtilli-
    Era una frase tipica che si ripeteva in testa, aiutava nelle situazioni di panico, principalmente quando i suoi genitori erano dei completi imbecilli nei suoi confronti, quindi praticamente tutti i giorni. Era una parola che le venne insegnata dalla sua psicologa a 7 anni, quando i problemi cominciarono. Nonostante la sua fosse una famiglia purosangue e assolutamente contro qualsiasi cosa avesse a che fare con il mondo babbano, Nerva venne subito portata a farsi visitare. Ormai la sua situazione era diventata ingestibile ed i suoi genitori non sapevano più cosa farne.

    Spring, 1987. An American without a family comes to stay in Britain, and George does all the things he thought he’d never do before he runs back home across the Atlantic.

    Summary

    “You don’t believe in ghosts, do you Mr. Meng?” Yu Ziyuan asks, standing in his doorway, but not taking another step into the room as she brushes invisible lint off the sleeve of her turtleneck. She’s barely looking at him, but Meng Yao still feels as if he’s underneath a microscope.

    “I can’t say that I do, Mrs. Yu.” Meng Yao answers, dodging the full truth of it. If he admits that he does, he might just be out of a job.

    “Good.” Yu Ziyuan answers, clasping her hands in front of her and lingering for just a moment longer, “Maybe you won’t go running off in the middle of the night like the last two bookkeepers my husband has hired.” With that Yu Ziyuan turns to leave, but stops again, her chin raised.

    So... there was a discussion on Tumblr and then this happened and I absolutely, completely and utterly, categorically refuse to take responsibility for it. It's all Polynya's fault.
    Artwork courtesy of the wonderful Polynya. Go and show that lady some love because she puts up with a lot from me and she absolutely deserves it.

    Summary

    “Tell me everything,” he says quietly after what feels like a hundred years of them just floating unbound in space. “Tell me everything, from start to end, and then I’ll decide whether or not to get the map. Okay?” He knows it’s a tall order for them - two men who had neglected to tell each other the truth for almost a year before it all blew up in their faces, but it’s all he can hang onto for now. Words.

    So he sits down, slowly, wand flat on the table underneath his palm, the end still pointed at Sirius.

    And Sirius tells him everything.

    --

    It's 1990, and Petunia and Dudley Dursley have been killed in a car crash. Remus Lupin is now Harry's reluctant ward. Thrown back into a world he has long since abandoned, he's forced to confront some painful truths of his past. Or, "what if the Dursleys died and Remus and Sirius reunited earlier"?
