    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)

    "I find speaking out loud inexpressibly useful when I'm trying to work something out," Elliott says.

    After a moment, Sebastian says, "Sometimes I throw old vegetables at the mountain face."

    Summary

    Jim Kirk is likable. 

    As in…people like him. He thrives on it, and for all of his pseudo-arrogance, he truly does care about what people think of him. When people genuinely like him for reasons other than being George Kirk’s son, it feels good. He knows that for the most part, he’s a good person, a fun person, a loyal person. He chooses to be the good things in the world because he sure can’t count on others to be that.

    The point is, he’s likable. He tries not to compare himself to his first officer, but there are certain differences. Jim is warm. Spock is cold. Jim smiles. Spock barely lets the corner of his mouth tilt up. 

    All of this is to say that it doesn't make sense when a little girl they rescue chooses to latch onto Spock, and refuses to let go.

    Anyway, so I started bawling.
    (Very sweet fic, I feel like I keep looking for Parent Fics and never find any that are satisfying. This was extremely satisfying!!)

    Summary

    January seventh. Seven days since the start of 2015, and seven days since his father’s death.

    The bastard, he thinks bitterly. The past year Derek Hale had made it blatantly obvious that he hated his scrawny guts, taking every given opportunity to shove him up against a wall, growl threats in his ears and roll his eyes whenever he stepped into the room, muttering some snide comment about how spastic or idiotic he was.

    So why did he fucking volunteer to take him in?

    Beautiful. The story itself is wonderfully written and the art that goes throughout it really adds to it. I love this so much.

    Summary

    Rather than allowing Harry to stay at Diagon Alley after he blew up Aunt Marge, the Ministry sends Harry back to the Dursleys. Harry returns to school after a terrible summer, to find that he's not the only one with this kind of secret. A student has been killed by his family. New screening measures are put into place by the Ministry: Every student must be given a medical exam and interview to look for child abuse. With Dumbledore facing an inquiry, Snape is entrusted with the task of making sure EVERYONE receives one.

    Answer to the "New measures for screening abuse" challenge at Potions and Snitches.

    The first chapter contains a character death and the whole story is quite dark. It begins at the beginning of Prisoner of Azkaban and is AU thereafter. Also note: this story is a "Snape is Harry's biological dad" story. This is not supposed to be the central theme of the story, but people have gotten annoyed that I didn't tell them at the beginning.

    Another note: There are no pairings in this story, or explicit sexual content. There are, however, mentions of homosexuality. Since there are no pairings, there is no slash content, but if the mere mention of homosexuality offends you, read something else.

    Severus snape is my comfort character, his poor choices be damned (unfortunately). This is the perfect dose of everything good I could ever want from him. My chest feels lighter and my heart is happy.
