    Summary

    His eyes fell on the handle of the knife, still lying where he had dropped it. Half intact. Just enough to see the initials carved in the sloppy way of a child. Just enough to realize, somewhere deep behind the snarling in his chest, was a child who recognized them.

    All you do is run.

    So he ran, the legacy ripping free like skin torn from a too-fresh wound, losing its purchase even as he grew more afraid, because it was the act of a coward, to run. The desperate last act of a dying child who had once been called Ajax.

     

    Maybe it was shame.
    Maybe that was why he could never remember her face.

    Summary

    Life is rough. Family is rough. Hardship zeroes in on five stragglers in particular—Xiao, Kaeya, Aether, Childe, and Zhongli, a group of individuals who looked at each other one day and said, “Hey, we all need somewhere to live and none of us have money. That’s, like, a whole two things we have in common. Let’s get an apartment together.”

    So they did. Five of life’s travelers, each with their own unique set of baggage. It goes well. They get along just fine. And, hey—sometimes family is you and your four circumstantial roommates, and sometimes that’s enough.

    Then, when Xiao’s health begins to spiral (because life is nothing if not unsatisfied), it doesn’t take a village: it takes a family of five and of choice. They’ll laugh through the best, plough through the worst, and they will make it.

    They will.

    (They must.)

    Summary

    EDUCATIONAL DECREE #30
    All magical children aged between 11 and 17 from the year 2000 onwards must obtain a graduation diploma to be considered Of Age and eligible for employment and independent living.
    Signed.
    Delores Umbridge, Hogwarts Headmistress

    With no directive over where an education must be obtained, Harry put forward the considerable coffers of the Black Family fortune and paid for hundreds of surviving Hogwarts students to flee the UK and set up elsewhere in the world, refusing to fall under the sway of a woman who delighted in torturing children. In choosing his new home and education, Harry selected a place directly on the otherside of the planet, as far away as physically possible - Namimori, Japan.

    He had no intention, or idea, that his first day at school would be such a debacle - or the beginning of the rest of his life.

    A different god resides in Cartenon Temple. Naturally, this also means a different System binds to Sung Jin-Woo.

    And every System needs a System Administrator.
