  1. Summary

    A set of unrelated works, all of which end tragically. For those who like to read such things.

    I don't like reading or writing tragedies. Real life has more than enough tragedy to spare without me creating more. I'm writing these stories to clear the plot bunnies out of my head and perhaps stretch myself as a writer.

    Summary

    It's the case that has dogged British law for a century; Dumbledore v Dumbledore. Judges and lawyers have come and gone, but still the case rages on, a bitterly-disputed question of inheritance that has become so convoluted that resolution seems to be impossible. The latest unhappy traveller in this saga is Harry Potter, of Bagnold, Lupin & Black, representing Dumbledore. And then, one day, a new and pretty, red-headed lawyer takes up the cudgels on behalf of Hebblethwaite Associates, representing Dumbledore.
    Suddenly, the case has got a lot more interesting.

    Summary

    Holed up at 12 Grimmauld Place and facing charges of underage and illegal magic use, it's fair to say that Harry Potter's summer holidays aren't going well. The date of his disciplinary hearing is drawing nearer and the pressure on him is growing, but he discovers that he has one ally who's thinking clearly and knows that an ounce of preparation may make all the difference.

    Which is just as well, because the rest of the world appears to have lost its collective mind!


    Imported from SIYE.
    Basically, it is written backwards from the courtroom scene later on, and suffers in the process with a bit in the middle that doesn't quite fit. Still good for a few giggles, I hope!
