    Summary

    Have you ever seen a sad looking kitten in the pet store and thought that maybe, just maybe, you could totally get away with it if you snuck it home and kept it and DAMN THE CONSEQUENCES?
    ...here, Howl essentially does that with a fire demon. A not-super-detail-oriented-but-still-intended-to-be-canon-compliant short fic that tells the story of how Howl and Calcifer met.
    Possibly (?) to be continued.

    Summary

    The Chrestomanci is dead. Aven has two other lives out there in the Related Worlds, but he knows he's almost good enough - and certainly there can be no one who wants the position more. He'd do almost anything. Unfortunately for him, linking with a fire demon is a serious misuse of magic, and in Aven's absence, the Castle's managed to finally find the person responsible for dealing with that sort of thing.

    (Not an AU in quite the way you might think.) (I think you can read this without knowing the DWJ—or even without knowing the B7, though you might have less incentive.)

    Summary

    It's been four months since Howl got his heart back, and Sophie is more than a little annoyed that the happily ever after that she was promised hasn't exactly occurred yet. As a matter of fact, Howl hasn't said a thing about it ever since. Cleaning, arguments, and misunderstandings ensue, and Sophie hopes there may just be a little romance along the way too.

    Summary

    The Wizard Belldragon was supposedly an immortal, beautiful man, who lived in a moving castle made of charcoal, and wooed young maids to steal their souls. Or eat their hearts, depending on who was telling the story. But each version maintains he’s ageless, gorgeous, and incredibly powerful.

    Clarke thinks most of the rumors are probably untrue, or at least unfounded. She finds it hard to believe the King would let a heart-eating Wizard hunker down in the heart of Arcadia. Then again, Jaha is incredibly distracted at the moment, so perhaps.

    Still, even she knows that if there’s anyone likely to break the curse on her, it’s a Wizard, and the fact that she’s currently at one’s backdoor seems a little too convenient to ignore.

    Summary

    Written for Yuletide 2014 for zephyrprince, who requested: “What I would like to see from this series would be some gen fic that explores how the magic system works in more depth.” Anyway, neither completely book canon nor movie canon. I ended up writing in the POV of Howl, still heartless, shortly after his first encounter with Sophie, musing about the differences in magic between his two separate worlds. I really hope you enjoy it, Zephyrprince. I enjoyed writing it. Two of my Betas, more familiar with the movie than the books, inquired about Howl in Wales, because I speak of Howl’s magical education there. I found a citation from howlscastle.wikia which summarized his early life in Wales succinctly:

    “Howell Jenkins was born to an ordinary family in modern-day Wales. However, he himself was anything but ordinary. Gifted with a natural talent for magic, he began studying it. Even in college, he wrote his thesis on magical spells and charms, and joined a group of other gifted magicians on Earth.”

    I want to extend a heartfelt 'thank you' to my Betas IgnobleBard, Thevina, Himring, and Zeen for reading and offering me concrit on this story.
