    Summary

    "I'm sorry," he said again.

    "Sorry's not enough, Sev. Be fucking better." Lily shut the door in his face.

    He spent the summer reading in the library, the park, and then sneaking home when he was hopeful his parents would be asleep. He tried to think about bravery, but sometimes he just thought about Lily's hair, the way it went more golden in summer. He tried to think about nobility, ethics and grace, but the clouds chased each other, fat and white, across the sky and he wasn't sure what any of this had to do with him.

    His father took him fishing by a dreary brown creek and they sat in silence. Severus could hear every creak, every lap of the water, every inhale and movement his father made. He thought maybe if he just said nothing, nothing ever, he'd never say anything again that made Lily's face go so flat and distant. If he said nothing, maybe nothing would hurt.

    His father reached for a beer can in a swift movement and Severus froze himself unflinching. He sat in that silence afterward, slowing his heartbeat, picking apart the sudden rigid shell of his shoulders. His father hummed, cracking the can open like a gunshot.

    (slight AU in which Sev is better at life)

    Summary

    After a rather engaging first year, the quartet is back for another year at Hogwarts.
    Add in drama from the Heir of Slytherin, concerning theories of Harry’s family tree, Blaise’s lack of stealth, and Draco’s growing emotions towards his best friend; this year will be anything but ordinary for our four Gryffindors.

    The second installment to my Redemption series.

    Summary

    Title: An Old Dog’s Will and a New Family
    Fandoms: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Harry Potter
    Rating: M
    Pairing: Newt Scamander/Percival Graves
    Length: words
    Content notes: Abuse!
    Author notes: This is a fill for the prompts New, Family and Bruises.
    Summary: Based on prompts on Fantastic Beasts Kink Meme:

    Harry is Credence reincarnated. Credence could be a separate personality in him that he talks to or Harry has dreams/flashbacks.

    +does this mean Harry is born with an Obscurus or does he eventually develop one?
    +what does this mean about Harry being a Horcrux as well?

    and

    Graves' mother was from House Black, one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight.

    ...years later, after Sirius Black dies, and elderly Graves finds himself (quite accidentally) Lord Black. (His husband, Newt Scamander-Graves, laughs and laughs and LAUGHS).

    Cue Graves descending on the British Wizarding World with all the grace and subtly of an elephant as he kicks ass, takes names, and gets stuff done.

    Summary

    or: Five times Graves talked to a magical creature and one time he told someone he could.

    Graves can speak to magical beasts. This wasn't particularly a problem until a magizoologist with a suitcase-full stumbled into his life.
