    Summary

    “Why are you doing this,” Geralt asks- he is tired. He has not had the time to mourn Jaskier with him right there at his side. “Jaskier. Why are you here?” 

    “Where else would I go?” Jaskier says- bloody teeth.

    Summary

    Jaskier may not have physical scars like Geralt, but he's not entirely unscathed.


    Following the djinn's attack, effects left by the old magic crop up now and again.

    Summary

    The Dorocha. They are the voices of the dead, my child. And, like the dead, they are numberless.

     

    Or

    A different take of the dorocha. Instead of them being faceless screams that attack you, they are actually figures of the dead. Merlin doesn't quite realize how much death affected him until him and the knights go to close the veil.

    Summary

    Albus Dumbledore rose to his feet, smiling at them in that way of his, like he knew something you didn't and he was proud of you for it. "Friends," he began.

    The door thudded open and the Marauders burst in, late and pink-cheeked with cold. The headmaster smiled at them, too, and Sirius gave a cheery little salute back.

    Severus sunk lower in his chair, staring witheringly over his butterbeer. "You told Potter about it, too?"

    "He might as well put all that energy to good use," said Lily. "And, to be accurate, I told Remus."

    "But Potter, really?" said Severus.

    "He and Black cooked up a jinx that gives you a boil every time you say a slur to a Muggleborn," said Lily. "It was either invite them to Alice's war club or bake them cookies, and I know where my skills lie."

    Severus sniffed. "Don't come crying to me if he tugs your pigtails."

    "Come crying to me if he pulls yours, and I'll deck him," said Lily.

    (Slight AU in which Severus apologizes, tries harder, and stays friends with Lily)

    Summary

    “Clint,” she said.

    His grip was bruising at her wrist. Every pound of her dangled from that one connection-- her aching ribs, the old wound in her thigh, her comfy boots, Tony’s gadget, the braid she’d grown out for five years. It all hung there--all of her--in this chill alien wind, while Clint stared at her down the long taut line of his own outstretched arm.

    “Clint,” Natasha said. “You’ve got to let me go.”

    Every inch of her was cold. The planet’s gravity pulled every part of her downward. Her wrist, where Clint was clutching at her, bruising her, holding tight, his palm sweaty and strained-- it was the only warm place on her whole tired body.

    “Clint,” she said, and he let her go.
