  2. Summary

    “Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps . . . perhaps . . . love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
    --Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

    Dean and Seamus's lives, told in missing moments from the series, from perspectives other than Harry's.

    Summary

    Alana wants Will. Will wants to want Alana. Will does not want to understand serial killers any more vividly than he already does.

    As ever, Hannibal has some suggestions.

    "I feel there is a high likelihood that you have not been entirely honest with me about your night terrors," Hannibal adds. "The true extent and depth of them."

    "Ding ding," Will says.

    "Would you say that your dreams when you are in the place of your killers have a sexual component?" Hannibal asks.

    OR: Will is manipulated into dirtytalking at Hannibal about the Ripper.

    Summary

    Nelson had a sister. It is noble when it is in broadsheets, when it is spoken of in metaphors, in bonds and leadership. Not in the close, stinking intimacy of it, not in a small and far from soundproof cabin with a tub of whale grease and two wolves circling each other.

    Summary

    The Force moves in mysterious ways, and sometimes it even has its own agenda. Rey finds herself caught in a battle with fate that throws her together with Kylo Ren, binding them together in the most powerful way possible... only to have fate drop her like a hot potato.

    A broken Force Bond isn't the easiest thing to bear, especially when the one you're missing is your sworn enemy and the father of your child.

    Warning: Parenting: Skywalker Style.

    (Kind of a deconstruction of the X-made-them-do-it-to-have-a-child fics, which always seem to end once a kid is born, whereas I'm more interested in what comes AFTER the not so happily-ever-after.)

    Summary

    A poisonous berry. A preposterous cure.

    A decidedly unscientific result.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “No, no wait,” Hermione said suddenly, jumping to her feet. “No, forget it. I can't - ” She'd rather die. That was all there was to it.

    “Miss Granger, sit down!” McGonagall barked and Hermione immediately dropped back into her chair.

    “As I was saying,” McGonagall went on, “the only cure is copulation with a pureblood wizard.”

    “What?” Ron said, frowning.

    “Copulation, Mister Weasley,” said McGonagall patiently. “Intercourse.”

    “So...” Ron said, looking between Hermione and McGonagall, “so... we have to... shag?”

    Hermione buried her face in her hands, wishing for all the world that she knew a spell that would open up a giant pit in the earth that would swallow her whole.
