    Summary

    Harry Potter’s sixth year at Hogwarts is about to begin, and the boy isn’t sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, he knows that this time, he’ll have a competent Defence teacher and a friend and ally amongst the school’s staff. But however comforting that thought may be, it’s also a cruel reminder that whatever friendship he has built with Professor Nine over the summer won’t be allowed to continue as it was once classes start.

    Draco Malfoy isn’t sure why he’s returning to school at all. Fleeing the country, finding a rock to crawl under, and hiding until the end of time would be easier than accomplishing the task that he has been burdened with. But as a Malfoy, he does as he is told; besides, he has long since understood that his opinion matters little in the grand scheme of things.

    Severus Snape thinks that he might have enjoyed being a teacher once—a long, long time ago. Before he was forced to try and content two masters at odds with each other. Before the boy he has sworn to protect and the one he’s cared dearly about since his birth decided they hated each other. Permanently caught between a rock and a hard place, it’s a wonder he can still think straight.

    Summary

    Reeling from his godfather’s death, Harry Potter is withering away in Surrey. His friends believe him when he writes to tell them that he is fine—although they should know better.

    Dumbledore finds an Auror with a sketchy background to take over the Defence classes, and the fact that she lacks the qualifications to teach and would rather cut her wand-hand than take the job doesn’t seem to register with the older man.

    With one look at the Chosen One, Hogwarts’ new Professor can see that the boy is hurting something fierce. That no one else in Dumbledore’s precious Order of the Phoenix seems to have noticed is perhaps a sign that it was high time she joined up—personal consequences be damned.

    Summary

    Around the time most young children's do, Harry's hair goes from his father's dark locks to his mother's bright, most-likely-magical red hair. It changes everything about who Harry identifies with, who he wants to grow up to be, and who he thinks he is. Instead of having James Potter as his idol, Lily Potter turns out to be a much better influence.

    So instead of seeing a scruffy, most-likely-a-muggleborn boy standing beside him in Madam Malkin's before their first year, Draco only has eyes for the scarlet haired, green-eyed creature who just walked into his life and instead of an enemy, he finds a reason to be better than he'd been raised to be. Not that Harry will ever notice, given he's trying to simply survive at Hogwarts.

    And Severus might not make it to see these boys graduate when his heart kept giving out seeing his very-Slytherin godson repeat his own history and go chasing after a green-eyed, red-haired Gryffindor.

    Turns out the Malfoys aren't that bad and Dumbledore definitely is. Remus is at his wit's end and Sirius gets a chance to actually live up to his title as Harry's dogfather. Tom Riddle is not prepared for any of this.

    Summary

    So, Tartaglia, 11th Harbinger of the Fatui and notorious bad guy, had to hope that the traveller he was currently trying to lure into a false sense of security, would forgive him for staring slack jawed at the new outfit her young chef friend had apparently managed to shove her into during a ‘girls trip’ out shopping in the Liyue ladies boutiques...

    Summary

    The Tsaritsa wants to know the secret of the Traveler's power, and Childe is tasked with delivering it to her.

    Note: I didn't initially use the rape/non-con archive warning because the fic doesn't feature PIV rape, and I used appropriate rape/non-con tags instead, but after reader feedback I've decided to switch to using the archive warning, out of concern for the tags not being obvious enough to see. But... PLEASE, READ THE TAGS.
