    Summary

    It’s not until Marta picks up the medical bag that she notices that something is wrong.

    She can hear Harlan still singing upstairs in the attic, just like she can hear everyone downstairs getting ready for bed, just like she can smell Walt’s cigarettes, the incense Joni is burning in her room, a thousand different things her senses are picking up that Marta has learned to ignore, learned to put to one side.

    But this--this Marta can’t ignore.

    Because it’s Ransom’s scent lingering in the room, Ransom’s Tom Ford cologne lingering in a room he has no reason to be in, and as Marta lifts the bag to her nose and takes a careful sniff of the handles--it’s Ransom’s scent, human sweat and pheromones and man-made perfume lingering on a medical bag he has no reason to be touching in the first place.

    Summary

    At first Harry wonders if they’ve managed to destroy his vaults and are trying to tell him in the most oblique way possible. But when he turns the page he realises they’ve found a vault. A vault in the name of Lily and James Potter.

    The parchment trembles a little in Harry’s hand. He takes another gulp of wine.

    Harry Potter left Britain after the war and didn’t look back. Ten years later, when Gringotts discovers a vault containing his parents’ belongings—including their badly spell-damaged wedding rings—he’s forced to face up to friends and family who’ve grown in ways he could never imagine, a wizarding London rebuilt beyond his expectations, and the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s the entirely unforeseen problem of Draco Malfoy.

    Featuring pureblood wizarding traditions, ancestral magic, open mic nights, marriage equality, a diner in Brooklyn, and the return of Fleamont Potter.

    Summary

    "There's no need for champagne, we've got loads on the plane," Merlin tells Eggsy, but it's not champagne he finds in the cabinet for their victory toast, it's his favourite Macallan - because saving the world, even at a cost he can't quite bring himself to imagine just yet, calls for more than the swill you drink at weddings.

    Not that it matters anyway, since he abandons both glasses he poured when Eggsy strides through the plane doorway with his chest heaving like some damsel in one of the tacky bodice-ripper novels Harry used to read when he was convalescing after injuries. He stares hungrily for a moment as if Merlin's an elaborately garnished kebab after a long night out drinking, and Merlin has just enough time to think with a sort of diamond clarity oh good lord before Eggsy's launching across the cabin to kiss him.
