    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

    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.

    Summary

    Most witches and wizards, if they're smart, want nothing to do with ancient curses, and Sophie and Howl Pendragon are no exception. Taking quiet coffee shop work should be enough to avoid dealing with a cursed shipwreck in normal circumstances... but circumstances are never particularly normal for a vain wizard and a strong-minded witch.
