    Summary

    Aurora Sinistra spends most of her time watching the stars. She's no centaur, but she's better than Trelawney. In the summer of 1991, she has a plan redeem the reputation of Slytherin House, and maybe some of the people inside it. Recruiting Severus Snape to help her over a game of chess, the two teachers undertake a gambit of their own that leads the Boy-Who-Lived and the Brightest Witch of Her Age into Slytherin House and friendships with Draco Malfoy.

    However, there is something strange going on at the school. Can the three figure out what it is that Professor Quirrell is up to and stop it? How will the changes in House and friendships effect Harry's relationship with Dumbledore and the headmaster's plans?

    Summary

    Continuing my trend of liking things where a great many characters die and then making AUs where no one dies:

    Sixteen-year-old Brendol Hux II isn't a general yet. He's cold, pragmatic, and on the fast track to being a First Order officer, yes, but he's still in training and in his father's shadow. One rather poor decision and the extended ramifications thereof later, he's on the fast track to ruining not just his own career, but the entire First Order along with it.

    (Meanwhile, 12-year-old Ben Solo is a human disaster, but he's a human disaster with a destiny. He's just not entirely sure what it is yet.)

    Summary

    He'd always said he was going to leave that place, even if Iwaizumi had never taken it as anything more than his strange obsession with going to space. Iwaizumi had never considered the fact that it may have meant something else. Iwaizumi had never considered the fact that he'd love the other three first years on his school's volleyball team, and above-all-else, he'd never considered the fact that he'd probably follow Oikawa anywhere.

    Summary

    Language shapes the world, for good or for evil. In silence, wounds fester and arguments begin. And what are wars but arguments out of control?

    (Or, Albus & Gellert: the things they never said, but should have, from the beginning to the end.)

    Summary

    Modern AU: Trista Hawke's parents probably had no idea how fitting the name they chose for her would be.

    This story is centred around neurodivergence and broad mental health issues, and how powerfully music can affect tones, moods, and even lives is going to be a strong theme as well. Warnings will always be placed in the tags, which will be updated as needed, as well as in the beginning notes of each chapter, even at the cost of potential spoilers if it ever comes to that.

    Summary

    “Go home,” Jack says. His voice is quiet, but there’s an underlying rage beneath the exhaustion.

    “I’m not finished.”

    “I don’t want you here when the others come back.”

    Blinking at the floor, Ianto looks at the watch on his wrist but at some point it’s stopped working, the glass casing cracked and the hands frozen at ten past twelve.

    “Go home,” Jack says again.

    Ianto blinks again at the floor, at the stains beneath his fingers that he knows will never come out, that have soaked in too deeply.

    Summary

    And if he ever were to fall, the arms were ready to catch him.
    And if the shock of the fall was too much for him to stand back up like it didn’t happen, those arms were still strong enough to hold him up until he stood on his own.

    Summary

    When they were young, as Loki remembers it, there would be days when they were inseparable. Those days would turn to weeks and months- a mere moment in most lives, but an eternity to children- even those of nearly immortal blood. These times would be filled with daydreams, adventures, and later on, discoveries- the pushing of boundaries and the crossing of lines. These times were punctuated by the reminder that they were opposing forces- one the white heat of a star’s core, the other the bleak cold of that same star’s collapse.
