    Summary

    Harry Potter spent his eleventh birthday in a cabin on a tiny rock in the middle of the sea, listening to his cousin snore on the couch.

    When a knock sounded on the wind-swept, rain-drenched door, it was not a giant fist (or a half-giant's fist). It was a short sharp rap that sounded once, twice, three times before Minerva McGonagall simply charmed the lock open and stepped inside.

    "Apologies," Minerva said crisply, as Vernon raced out brandishing his rifle and Petunia pulled Dudley up off the couch and behind her. "I wasn't sure you could hear me over the weather.” The rain fell down behind the professor in a roar. She was perfectly dry.

    Minerva fished in her pocket without looking, because the only things allowed in her pockets were only ever exactly what she needed. “I've come to deliver this," she said, pulling out a letter and handing it to Harry, who was cross-legged on the floor, "because our owl post seems to have been unable to get through.”

    “And I've come to deliver this," she added, pulling out a second letter, "because Hogwarts by-laws require a professor to hand-deliver acceptance letters to Muggleborn families for their explanation and comfort."

    Summary

    A spark blooms deep in Mob’s eyes as the hand at his side curls into a loose fist and his head lolls onto his shoulder. He is blank, with stars crackling in his skull, and Reigen gets the oddest (unfounded, unfounded) feeling that he may be looking at something that’s not presently there. The atmosphere is charged with static, with swirling particles and trembling molecules; it thickens around Mob’s hand and takes on the purple, viscous lilt of his aura. Bits of it drop in globs to the floor. They burst on impact, splattering over the white of Mob’s shoes.

    “Oh,” he says.

    In which Reigen and Mob (but mostly Mob) exorcise a spirit

    Summary

    The clues were there and they were not impossible to put together. A person didn’t have to be breathtakingly clever and named Hermione Granger to realize that Professor Remus Lupin was a werewolf. The regular absences were covered up well and then explained away with the dismissive ease of someone who had been making these excuses all their life, but there were still students who could take a break from their own busy lives just long enough to make the necessary leap of logic.

    - Some snippets of realization with some random Hogwarts students.
