    Summary

    A short-lived series of private lessons took place after Christmas in Harry Potter's fifth school year, during which Severus Snape attempted to teach Harry the skill of Occlumency. The lessons were ultimately cancelled when Harry was caught prying into Snape's memories, discovering the strangest things: A mysterious prophecy connected Harry's fate with Voldemort's, Harry's dad was an insufferable bully, and Severus Snape had been in love with Harry's mum. Naturally, Harry now has a million questions. Snape would prefer to answer none.

    The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes. The same question arises in every soul: "For what, for whom, must I kill and be killed?"
    ...Or, a classic approach to stubbornness.

    Summary

    A mysterious object is uncovered in the depths of the Ministry, causing chaos and concern.

    Desperate for a change, a challenge, and a better way to pay for the care of her ailing mother, Hermione agrees to work for the Ministry on solving that mystery.

    This sets her on a path towards the recently returned Harry Potter, who is trying to root out corruption in a deeply flawed system, towards her old Hogwarts bullies who are longing to see her fail, and towards a crown, that she will wear, whether they like it or not.

    Summary

    On paper, a bacon sarnie and a cup of good coffee isn’t exactly the kind of thanks one should receive for rescuing someone’s family member from an overdose; but Lestrade thinks that it’s possibly the best one he’s ever received.

    Summary

    It’s not as if these things come with a manual, thinks Thomas with a touch of indignation. One just does one’s best. (Or-- Nightingale’s relationship with his body across the decades, particularly with regards to a certain Peter Grant.)
