"I see, at intervals, the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close-set bars of a cage: a vivid, restless, resolute captive is there; were it but free, it would soar cloud-high..."

    Summary

    “I’m sorry, Sherlock, but I think what you just said is that you’ve been catfishing a murderer online, pretending to be a couple, your brother and I, and now you want us to meet him? A murderer? As a couple!” The last few words are really quite loud, and Rosie makes a startled squeak in the kitchen.

    Sherlock glares at him.

    Greg takes a deep breath. “Sorry,” he says, automatically, then – “No – no! Not – not sorry, because – of all the things, Sherlock, that you have ever done, this is undeniably the most – the most utterly – I –”

    He closes his eyes, fists clenched, and takes several deep breaths.

    “Overlooking many, many other problems with this entire scenario –” he pauses and takes another breath, “– what on Earth makes you think that, as a couple, a detective and a – a – whatever he is –” he gestures wildly at Mycroft – “would put themselves online on a dating site?”

    Summary

    Greg’s nervous. Climbing the stairs to the artist’s studio, his stomach squirms. It’s been a long time – decades – since he last did this. He just hopes the guy isn’t disappointed with the model he’s hired. (He’d’ve done it without pay, honestly, it’s just a need to do something different – something he’d done when he was young, before…before the world got so hard – only the guy had insisted.)

    The door stands ajar, and Greg pushes it further open. He clears his throat, about to ask if there’s anyone there; and then he sees him, silhouetted against the rain-rivuleted window.

    Summary

    “Just. How bad is it?”

    Zayn sighs. Shit.

    “Not that bad, really,” he says quickly as he scans Louis’ face. “It depends, really. The freshmen are all right and I think you’ll manage just fine with the sophomores.”

    “But?”

    “Seniors are always shit because they think they rule the school, and this specific class of juniors… Well, let’s say you’ll find a real troublemaker there. Some say he used to be a soft kid, but- I don’t know. Most teachers just leave him alone.” Zayn shrugs. “He walks around with a tough crowd. Guess no one wants to take their chances with him. This is Chicago after all.”

    “D’you know the name of the kid?” Louis asks, already very curious to meet said person.

    “His name is Harry Styles.” The other man responds. “You’re in for a treat with this one.”

    [Or: The one in which Louis always hears thunder when Harry speaks and sees lightning when he glances at him.]

    Summary

    The fiasco at the Department of Mysteries had many consequences. One accident with a time-turner sent Harry to a faraway past. But who can really he rely on in this farce of home? And should he really trust Albus Dumbledore to have his best interests at heart?
    Harry was going to go back to his time. Back to 1996. He was going to go back to the Department of Mysteries. He was going to save his friends, and everybody in his time whose existence is being threatened.
    But how? At what price?
    And what will be left of him in the end?
