  1. Summary

    This is a collection of self-indulgent fragments from a sleep-deprived brain, because headcanon and crossovers are really the healthiest things to be overthinking at 4 am.
    That said, if anyone wants to take anything that appears here and run with it, just make sure to let me know so I can read it.

    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

    Summary

    When Hermione Jean Granger was one year old her parents died in a car crash. She knew all about it because she asked a lot of questions and her aunt and uncle believed in answering them.

    Why is the sky blue, auntie? Why are b's and d's like in the mirror? Where do songs come from? Why did Jenny Hopkins call me a--?

    Her father had accelerated into a green light, like you were supposed to. (By the time she was eight, Hermione had the driver's rulebook memorized). A truck driver, going the opposite way, hadn't stopped at a red.

    Hermione had been strapped in a car seat in the back, her aunt and uncle told her. She hadn't been hurt at all except for the scar that stood out, jagged, on her forehead.

    As Hermione grew up into a gangly, bushy-haired, buck-toothed wonder, she thought she could remember it-- a glaring green light, a rush of cold air.

    Summary

    “You weren’t even my second choice for a spouse out of our house year,” Daphne says coldly, after at least fifteen minutes of wintery silence.
    “Was your first choice Blaise?” Draco asks grimly, looking very like his mother as he downs a second glass of wine. Everybody’s first choice is Blaise; Blaise’s first choice is probably Blaise.
