    Summary

    “You understand, Professor,” Harry began, after a moment, “that I don’t have my N.E.W.T.s. I never even finished seventh year. Between everything, I never had a chance the first time around, and then afterwards there didn’t seem to be much point. Hermione argued for it, of course, but I was so tired of Britain. So technically, I am completely unqualified for the position.”

    “Quite a way to begin an interview, Mr. Potter,” McGonagall said, dryly.

    Or, three years after the war, Harry Potter becomes Hogwarts' newest Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.

    Summary

    Alexis breaks up with Mutt (or maybe Mutt breaks up with Alexis, according to David, though he divulged this theory to Stevie quietly and then appeared to feel sort of guilty about it afterward, complimenting Alexis’ choice of bejeweled headband when she walked by them several minutes later), and becomes a fixture in the motel’s lobby.

    The first time she swans in, settling on the sofa only briefly before hopping to her feet again to pepper Stevie with questions about what she does when she's alone, and how she feels about spending her time by herself, and why. She leaves shortly after, and Stevie assumes it’s a one-time thing, a blip in their respective routines. Alexis is the member of the Rose family who spends the least amount of time at the motel, and Stevie has no reason to expect that to change.

    Except it does.
     
    Stevie, Alexis, and a different take on season two.

    Summary

    The much bigger surprise, however, came from Mrs Rose. A kindness of a sort so very specific to a woman for whom, Stevie knew, performance was a life’s calling. She offered Stevie an opportunity to take up space. To be someone else. To take all her pain of rejection and, instead of burying it, use it to make something.


    When Stevie Budd took on the role of Sally Bowles she could never have known how much she would gain from it.

    Summary

    “Invite Alexis to Christmas at my parents’,” he told David.

    David groaned, tipping his head back. “My sister continuously ruins my life,” he grumbled, dragging himself up off the couch reluctantly and picking up his phone.

    Patrick brings David, Alexis, and Stevie home for the holidays.
