    Summary

    When Petunia Dursley refused to take Harry in she forfeited his birthright protection, so Dumbledore took the baby to the safest place he knew: Hogwarts.

    The applicable staff (mostly just… not Snape) took Harry in on a rotating schedule as he grew from baby to toddler to child. They traded extra credit for babysitting among the older students, and Harry grew up knowing a few dozen different laps that were safe and warm to nap in.

    This was a Harry who grew up among books, among old transient walls and learned professors. They gave Binns night duty sometimes, and let him talk young Harry to sleep. This was a Harry whose world changed, on principle, daily. The stairs moved. The walls became doors. You had to keep your eyes open–you had to pay attention. So he did.

    He grew up in a school. Knowledge was power, but knowledge was also joy. This was his sanctuary. There was magic in his world from birth.

    im 20 years old and just cried over a harry potter fanfic! wow

    He died out there on that forbidden ground without even drawing his wand. He had been raised by the wise, this boy, but also by the brave, by the loyal and the kind, by those who made real friends.

    His hands shook, standing there in the cold, because bravery is most of all what you do when your hands are shaking too hard to hold things. His hands shook, but true friendship is about what you do when the day is darkest. Sometimes wisdom is knowing there are things worth dying for.

    The day was dark.

    Summary

    “I’m so proud of you, my nephew.” Uncle cups Zuko’s face in his lined hand. The gesture is so tender, his palm so warm, that Zuko has to take a fortifying breath against the sudden swell of emotion in his chest.

    “I want to be a good leader, Uncle,” Zuko says. “I want to look after my people.”

    “You will,” Uncle says. “You are, nephew.”

     

    In a new era of peace, Zuko works to be a very different Fire Lord than his forefathers. Based on this tumblr post.

    “You know,” Zuko says, “I regret my actions in Ba Sing Se, but I’m kind of relieved that I didn’t have to watch you four pretend to be Fire Nation citizens. It would’ve given me a stomach ulcer.”

    “I thought we did pretty well,” Aang says.

    “Sapphire Fire,” Zuko repeats again.

    "One party," Rosch said, pleading. "Make small talk for a few hours, and then leave. You can be polite for that long."

    "Doesn't sound like I have much of a choice," Stocke said, holding up a knife with one finger to test the balance. "Either I attend, or the infighting worsens, I watch Alistel collapse into civil war, and I have to go anyway to prevent it. Tell Raul I'll be there."

    stocke is functionally incomprehensible to all outsiders, especially when they want him to schmooze

    "One party," Rosch said, pleading. "Make small talk for a few hours, and then leave. You can be polite for that long. You talked the king of Cygnus around, didn't you?"

    "I insulted him and threw a fireball at his head," Stocke said.

    That did, admittedly, sound like Stocke.

    Summary

    The Straw Hats find out that their captain has one hell of a family. When asked about his mother’s whereabouts, Luffy simply grins and throws his arms out, gesturing to the endless expanse of sea around them. With complete sincerity, he replies, “The ocean is my mother!”

    An AU where Luffy isn’t entirely human, and water affects him differently than other Devil Fruit users.

    the current most popular op fic (by bookmarks) for a reason. such a fascinating concept!

    Ace glances at Luffy again, and although his brother hasn’t physically changed in the few seconds after this unexpected revelation, it feels like Ace is looking at him for the first time.

    If the Maiden really is Luffy’s mother somehow, then he is the child of a real-life, literal goddess. An actual deity of the seas. So that makes Luffy, Ace’s own baby brother… a probable demigod, born of the sea herself.
