    Summary

    Autumn: 1980: The wizarding world has been straining against the rotting stitches of tradition and tribalism for at least a thousand years. Every few centuries, things get so bad that even wizards admit there's a problem. It's gonna be one of those years.

    Hogwarts may or may not be talking to its newest guardian through the stones, a government under an threat that can't be pinned on a map is a dangerously predictable animal, the elements that move a nation are blood, gold, and ink, and Tom Riddle is pretty sure they should all be thanking him for the kick in the pants.

    What's that in your amphora, Pandora?

    Ch 6: In which Sir Not Appearing In This Chapter tries to deal with his demons by making everyone else er…. face them? Sure, let's go with 'face them.'

    Also, school principals spend a lot of time hearing about misbehaviors and bodily functions. Which is cool, because the rest of the job is basically paperwork.

    Summary

    “Okay how stoned is he?” Eric asked, hesitating even as Jack started toward the car. “I don’t really want to die at the hands of some stoned dude who thinks he’s some Mary Poppins character.”

    Jack chuckled, his hand drifting along the side of the SUV til he found the handle. He wrenched it open, then stepped aside. “I made him sober up before we left. I mean, it’s not the most posh date. Just Annie’s, but I wanted to be the first to buy you the Pumpkin coffee thing.”

    Summary

    I ripped the duct tape off his mouth, and he immediately spat at me. It hit me in the shoulder. I heard at least two guns cock.

    “Take it easy, guys,” I said, and to him, “What’s your designation?”

    He glared up at me, eyes narrowed to slits.

    “Why are you here?”

    Glare. Silence.

    “Do you know who I am?” I tried.

    “Nora Bowman,” he said, with enough venom that it sounded like Benedict Arnold or Judas Iscariot. “The woman who destroyed Father’s life’s work, and the best hope for humanity, out of spite.”

    Part II in the "How Life Goes On, The Way It Does" series. Inspired by a conversation with leomona in the comments to the first part.

    Summary

    “Late as usual, Harry,” Chester grumbles.

    He notices how he’s the only one who turns to see the latest addition to the meeting come sauntering in without a care.

    And who Eggsy sees is a truly beautiful specimen of a male human being. Like - beyond all of his comprehension.

    Harry Hart is all long limbs hidden under tailored trousers, a button down shirt, and an opened blazer. He carries his satchel under one arm and the morning paper in the other while he drinks from a Starbucks coffee cup. His hair is wind-blown by the tubes, no doubt, and wavy, and his dark eyes are hidden behind a pair of thick rimmed glasses.

    He seems oblivious to the interruption he’s caused as he goes to take a seat next to Merlin who is trying to suppress his laughter.

    It should be illegal for someone to look that bloody good.
