    Summary

    Kravitz hadn't intended on sort of informally adopting Angus, but that was what happened. He certainly wasn't complaining though, and he was glad to have him in his life now. When he started dating Taako it seemed to be only natural to want to introduce the two most important people in his life.

    Taako certainly hadn't meant to start watching after Angus at all. The kid just sort of wormed his way into his life, and it wasn't like Taako didn't know what it was like to be a kid on your own. So sure, he'd watch after the kid every so often, teach him magic and feed him and what not. And If Kravitz wanted to have their kids meet or whatever, he would bring Angus along.

    Summary

    Taako needed some extra cash, and tutoring was a pretty low stress job that fit his schedule. It wasn't even hard, he just met with a kid a couple times a week and helped with their homework and whatever. It was a pretty good job, and the kid he landed with wasn't half bad. Taako didn't like kids, but he guessed Agnes or Angus or whatever was alright.

    He didn't plan on getting attached to the job though. Or to Angus.

    Or to Angus's really hot single dad.

    Summary

    Brad pushes his glasses up his nose, looking down at his clipboard. “The B.O.B has been running for about three years now, yes? And we offer four weeks of vacation every year for employees?”

    “Yes, all employees must use their vacation days or lose them. They don’t stack year-by-year, but an employee may request more time off.”

    Brad gives her a meaningful look. Lucretia looks back with a neutral expression, refusing to be cowed. When she doesn’t say anything, Brad sighs and lowers his clipboard. “Director Lucretia, do you want to take a year off?”

    Lucretia’s brain short-circuits.

    Summary

    “ID, please,” the receptionist says, and Barclay holds it out to her. She barely bothers glancing at it before she hands it back. Mama’s put the cigarettes away when Barclay looks again, playing with her lighter and leaning against one of the pillars of the small porch. The square bolt of her jaw flexes as she clenches her teeth, and the stormcloud of her hair glints with pink highlights in the glow of the buzzing neon vacancy sign. She flicks the zippo closed, pinches the bridge of her nose and sighs, her breath fogging in the cold air.

    “Dude,” the receptionist says, exasperated, and he realizes she’s holding her hand out, an unimpressed eyebrow raised.

    “Sorry,” he says, and pulls out Mama’s wallet. “How much?”
    -
    Mama and Barclay open Amnesty Lodge for business in late fall of 1999. Some Sylphs have trouble getting there, resulting in a road trip or two. They're horribly in love, and don't quite realize it's requited. Commissioned by Diego.

    Summary

    As the moon rises above the treeline, Taako smells the distinctive scent of big magic—ozone, hanging thick in the air. The bird unfurls its wings, growing larger and shifting before Taako’s eyes until it's no longer a bird at all, but the most handsome man Taako’s ever seen.

    He’s dark-skinned, with long dreadlocks that tumble down over his shoulders, dressed in a fine suit that’s years out of date, but perfectly preserved. His cheekbones are high and his gaze is sharp. He studies Taako and Magnus from the other side of the thorn bush, and tilts his head, considering them. “You’re a long way from home,” the man says. “Didn't anyone warn you about the dangers lurking in the Felicity Wilds after the sun goes down?”

    Summary

    Everyone knows that the seventh son of the seventh son has great magical abilities, that they are destined to become great.

    But a sixth son of a seventh son? That’s nothing special. There’s no guarantee of magic or heroics or special gifts. Just a little boy with lanky limbs and earnest eyes and a face splattered in generations of freckles, who grows up knowing that he’s nothing but a footnote to the glory of his older siblings.

    Ron Weasley grows up as a shadow. Every single one of his older siblings is extraordinary, in their own way- Bill, the exceptional linguist and cursebreaker; Charlie, the dragon tamer; Percy, head boy and prefect; the twins, inventors extraordinaire. His entire life, Ron is compared to them by everyone he knows and always falls just a little short, no matter how hard he tries.

    Is it any surprise that Ron wants more out of life, that when he arrives at Hogwarts, bastion of magical opportunity and the chance to change his fate, that he takes it?

    Summary

    The first time Hermione spoke to Pansy was about five weeks into term. At their table, in the corner of the library, hidden by the books and shelves that had been salvaged.

    "I forgive you." She had murmured quietly, and Pansy almost broke her neck at the speed it came up to look at her.

    Brown eyes to brown eyes. Woman to woman. Coward to hero.

    "I do." She said, fidgeting with her quill. "Don't think I haven't seen you in the towers. I notice everything."

    Pansy nodded, and the small smile Hermione gave her meant everything and even more.

    Summary

    “Well, I hadn’t thought I would ever say this, but I suppose it’s a good thing I nearly burned down both of our apartments,” Kravitz said soberly. There was a brief second of silence, enough time for Kravitz to wonder if he had fucked it up, when Taako’s unique peal of laughter rang throughout the kitchen again.
    “I don’t know if I would go that far!” Taako said, amusement clear in his voice. “Candlenights alone is still better than Candlenights on fire!”
    “It is called ‘Candlenights,’ some amount of fire is implied just in the name,” Kravitz argued playfully.

    Five years of gifts Kravitz gives Taako at Candlenights, and what he gets return.
