    Summary

    “I know who you are, all right?” Trixie says. He shifts his balance. Knife, lyre, sachet of holy herbs, wineskin. He marks them mentally on his body, makes a sundial of himself, tells time by the tools he carries.

    Katya strokes the bird’s tiny head. “Oooh.” He’s mocking him, his eyes bright with laughter. Trixie knows calm is the deadliest weapon in his arsenal, but it’s one of the few he hasn’t mastered.

    “Yeah,” he goes on, “and your whole thing isn’t gonna work on me.”

    “Oooooh!” He waggles his fingers in the air. “Not my whole thing!”
     

    Trixie's a champion on an endless tour of the sea. Katya's a witch living on an enchanted island. The rest is (ancient Greek) history.

    Summary

    Tessa leans back in her chair and wraps her arms around herself. Every nerve in Scott’s body is screaming to reach out for her. Anticipating his next move, she looks him in the eye and says, “We can’t have any distractions, Scott, not if we mean it.”

    “But only until PyeongChang.”

    “Only until after PyeongChang.”

    “But, like, right after.”

    “Yeah.”

    “Okay,” says Scott, taking a deep breath. “I think we can handle it, if you think we can.”

    Summary

    The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it, and the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about in The Daily Notes From History of Magic. An alternate look at Sixth Year.

    Summary

    He hates lists, and would much prefer any story about him not be written in list format, but then, that just isn't his decision to make, now is it?

    1,300 words. PG-13. A few different Remus pairings implied, but nothing explicit. One canon-based Remus pairing that could not be ignored. :) Written for iulia_linnea's annual Harry Potter Random Facts Fest. September 2007.
