    Summary

    One desperate decision has unimaginable consequences. When Harry received his letter at eleven, he turned down the offer to attend Hogwarts. He had to; it was his only chance to escape. Five years later and, in the brief moments he recalls his decision, he feels nothing but regret. Until an incident causes the opportunity to arise once more, and he is finally given the chance to escape that which has smothered him for so long.

    Summary

    When she was small, Susie’s aunt Amelia had taken her to work whenever her parents asked her to babysit. She toddled around her office. When Susie was older, she got to sit under her aunt's desk in court and listen to her give out rulings, verdicts, decrees.

    There was tradition there, scripts and structure, and Susie had felt herself lean into them, comforted, strengthened. Over the years, she saw so many ways the system could be corrupted. Umbridge used it like a blunt weapon and blood purists had snuck into it for years like burrowing termites, undermining the foundations, making it their own home.

    When Susan Bones was twenty-three she would look across her steaming mug and the Ministry breakroom table, and see Hermione aching to burn it all down to ashes. Susan wanted to scour it to its roots, instead, wear it down to its rebar and concrete, and then rebuild from the old, worn foundations on up.

    “Your parents died for you,” Susie told Harry Potter once. “My aunt died for this. Now either shut up and get me a fresh cup of coffee or try to drag me out of here before I finish this.”

    But that was a war away. That was a childhood away from now.

    Summary

    After Hermione and Harry are dealing with Ron's leaving them, one of the last people they would want to discover them apparates yards away from their tent.
    Oddly enough, this person ends up being more than they would expect of him, and precisely what Hermione needs after being abandoned by Ron.

     

    This is my first fanfic ever, so please be patient and kind with me as I figure this out. Any encouragement and feedback is most appreciated. So excited to hear what you think, hopefully this is as entertaining for you to read as it is for me to think about. I'll post each chapter as soon as I've finished writing them, you won't go weeks between chapters, I promise.
