    Summary

    "They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason."

    Summary

    "Wolves howling on a moonless night, gypsy camps slaughtered by savage creatures that came from the dark forest. He was holding his hunting gun, aiming at the darkness, where a beast with golden eyes stared at him until suddenly there was no monster staring at him. He turned his back to face a woman with a pale face and long dark hair. Her beauty was ethereal, nearly phantasmagoric. She touched his face, she kissed him on the lips and bite his neck amidst a lust hush. This is a dream.

    Summary

    Charles had spared his life. That was not something he could easily repay.

    They wrote letters to each other for two years, until Charles was pulled out of the war from a sudden illness and Erik remained to fight for a cause he didn't believe in. One that ultimately had no effect; one that stole away four years of his life.

    Traumatized and persecuted, Erik applied for a post at Janus, a lighthouse in the middle of the Irish Sea. He thought being alone would do him good.

    Despite the letters and despite the love, Erik didn't expect Charles to find him.

    Summary

    Blue Sargent doesn't want friends. Blue wants to get out of her tiny wizarding village and see the world, muggle and magical alike. But keeping your head down and finding your escape isn't quite as simple as all that when the sorting hat starts warbling about a powerful awakening of an old legend and you end up being caught up in a whirlwind of a quest to find something 'more than a god' by a group of boys with questionable authority on the subject.

    Or: the multi-chapter, epic Hogwarts AU that no one asked for but I wanted anyway.

    Summary

    It is early May in the summer of 1928 and almost a year and a half has passed since December, 1926 after Newt's adventure capturing his beasts in New York. Gellert Grindelwald resisted all interrogation methods and escaped undetected from MACUSA one winter's night in late 1927 with help from his loyal followers.

    The sinister wizard has gone into hiding underground and the international hunt to capture him has gone cold. Newt is busy working in the Beast Division at the Ministry of Magic after successful publication and international press tours of his book, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them from May to August in 1927.

    Newt and Tina have kept in close contact through letters transported by ship and Newt has taken the occasional romantic visit to New York. His suitcase is now considerably lighter and magically refurbished after secretly returning some of his creatures to their natural habitats throughout Britain.

    Yet they never forgot about Credence, sometimes pondering the thought of his survival and wonder where he may have gone, reminiscing on the fiery tendril of the Obscurus flying out of the subway at dawn that winter's morning in a desperate attempt to find it's host and escape death.

    Summary

    Her hands are rougher now, her body softer and her voice warmer, but she’s still the Mary who quivered with joy when the crocus bloomed, and who bloomed for him just the same with a few soft words and some patient coaxing, who trusted him as implicitly as Soot and Captain ever did.

    Dickon remembers how Captain rumbled with pleasure when he was stroked. He can’t help wondering if Mary would do the same.

    Summary

    His Lordship Captain Sirius Orion Black, heir to the Black family fortune, has returned from the Great War. Sirius’ next line of duty, according to his parents, is to find a suitable wife. However, Sirius himself is rather disinterested in finding a bride, and more excited by discovering the new culture that is brewing in London with the coming turn of the decade.
    Remus John Lupin, son of former lawyer Corporal Lyall Lupin and seamstress Hope Lupin, did not fight in the Great War due to arrhythmia and what was called “weak lungs.” A person of his class and health has few prospects.
    Two more different young men could not be found.
