    Summary

    "Hi," you say. "I’m Jane. Last year I fell through a mirror and into an upside-down world full of sentient playing cards where I overthrew the evil queen. And if you even think of laughing or pretending you don’t believe me I am going to stab you with a fork."

    He’s facing you full on, now. Staring.

    "Well?" you say. "What was yours?"

    "...Magical pony adventure," he says finally.

    Summary

    White Rose Week 2022: Hound/Grimm AU

    The first days are the worst.

    You chew through your restraints, gnawing and gurgling, the snap and groaning of the metal that had kept you chained to the wall giving way. The emotion that it invokes inside of you is satisfying and confusing—and you realize that the moment your teeth had sunk into the metal that aching-gnawing feeling in your gut had resided. Your thoughts are a frenzy of unintelligible desires after that, the vehicle that is your body piloted by instinct—it’s dark body firmly attaching itself to the driver's seat while what used to be your mind screams, bound and gagged in the trunk. 

    You don’t know which one you are—the person who is watching your body do increasingly odd and unsettling things or the thing that does them.

    (Because it doesn’t feel like you’re a person anymore sometimes. You stop being you and become it. The thing. The thing listens to nothing, feels nothing, knows nothing—only the hunger remains when you are The Thing, and you are hungry more than you are anything else.)

    Summary

    There’s nobody named Lyarra in Winterfell, according to her father; the last person who bore that name was his mother, and she was buried decades ago.

    Sansa speaks to her the next week.

    [Sansa can speak to ghosts, and this changes everything.]

    Summary

    Lavender takes one step forward and – just like the snap of a finger, the blink of an eye, the drop of a pebble – Hogwarts is left behind. There's no jump, no flashes of light, no whirlwinds of disconnected images. Just one little step; behind stood her war and in front stands 1947. "Huh," she says to herself, "didn't see this in the tea leaves."
