  1. Summary

    Tales from an alternate universe of The Terror (TV 2018) in which forty-eight members of the Franklin Expedition survived. There's no real master plan, and elements of it come to light as I go, and stories will be added as inspiration strikes.

    Summary

    You’re worldbuilding, and you need a legal system.

    Or more accurately (probably), you’re writing a fic that may not be about law, but which might be law-adjacent. Something like casefic, or maybe your characters are going through a separation, or pretty much anything involving deep political intrigue. And you want to make sure your fic hits that critical suspension of disbelief threshold, and you want some nice, tasty details to throw in to make your readers salivate.

    This is a guide on how to do that.

    Summary

    Harry Potter has three canonical trials and many other references to legal processes and systems which are never really explained in their totality. The few glimpses we do see are puzzling: why is Harry being tried before the full WIzengamot? Why does Fudge have such a huge role? What about Umbridge, and how does it all work? It's easy to say that JKR just didn't think of a cohesive legal system (and that may very well be correct), but what happens if we do an analysis of the legal processes shown in Harry Potter?

    Or: A lawyer takes on Harry Potter, and discovers that all witches and wizards are noble. Actually.
