"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

    Stephen Strange was never offered Mastery of the New York Sanctum. Instead, he somehow finds himself wandering the world, searching out magic and occasionally (usually) trouble. Although he does return to Kamar-Taj semi-regularly to teach classes and get yelled at by Wong for poor library etiquette.

    So how on earth does he keep running into Tony Stark?

    (And it's definitely not his fault that Stark is convinced that he's some sort of supervillain.)

    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?
