    By turns funny and poignant, this story serves as an excellent companion to Squire. Superb character voices and interactions.


    It was even a relief to hear a too-loud voice call him one day, "What do you know, it's Queenscove!" and turn around and see Cleon of Kennan. "You're alive. I thought for sure the Lioness would have torn you apart by now."

    "Shows what you know," Neal told him loftily. "She is obviously saving that as a Midwinter surprise. Unfortunately I plan for my Midwinter gift to her to be my absence."

    "But that's what I was hoping for, for Midwinter," Cleon said, and tugged Neal's ear once he was close enough. 

    "A squire's first duty is to his knight master," Neal said. "Not to lumbering oafs they had the misfortune of meeting as pages."

    Tyrion and Sansa meet again as adults and equals... and eventually become a power couple to be reckoned with. One of the few fics I've encountered where this pairing really works for me.
     

    As Tyrion and Sansa begin to take walks along the walls and in the gardens together, riding through the city together, dining together in the privacy of Tyrion's solar in the Tower of the Hand, sitting together at the feasts Dany and Aegon host at least twice a week, people begin to remember that they were, in fact, married.

    Aegon raises the matter in jest during a council meeting, and Tyrion informs him that no, they were not married, that they are married.

    [...] Silence greets his calm announcement, everyone present realising that between them, Sansa and Tyrion have claim to all of Dany's kingdom aside from the lands in the south – and everyone knows that the Tyrells are Tyrion's because he saved the beautiful Ser Loras from dragon-fire, the Stormlanders the same because it was he who begged the Queen to be merciful to Shireen, Stannis' daughter and the last Baratheon in the realm. It is a marriage that can't be allowed to stand, that shouldn't be allowed to stand, that-

    Daenerys cuts across the mute panic that has engulfed her council and asks Tyrion if he and Sansa wish to now seek an annulment.

    Tyrion grins, flashing them all the smirk for which he has achieved infamy, and bows his head slightly before assuring them that no, he and the Lady Sansa wish to take the time to actually consider their options before making a decision. After all, he tells them, the marriage was forced on both of them by his father and his sister, but that doesn't mean that he and Sansa might not have arrived at this point anyways.

    He takes his leave then, but makes a quip about how only a truly foolish man would turn down the most beautiful woman in Westeros when he has a face like Tyrion's. Really, Jon thinks, the only thing to be done is laugh.

    Wherein female characters aren't ignored or fridged, the narrative doesn't ignore the GFFA's slavery issue, and the Jedi Order is (slightly) more open to change. Lots of lovely character and culture building.

    Summary

    “You understand, Professor,” Harry began, after a moment, “that I don’t have my N.E.W.T.s. I don’t even have my O.W.L.s. Between everything I never had a chance the first time around, and then afterwards there didn’t seem to be much point. Hermione argued for it, of course, but I was so tired of Britain. So technically, I am completely unqualified for the position.”

    “Quite a way to begin an interview, Mr. Potter,” McGonagall said dryly.

    Or, three years after the war, Harry Potter becomes Hogwarts' newest Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.

    The HP fic equivalent of comfort food.

     
    In all, McGonagall thought that every student who had stayed behind for holidays was gathered in the room.

    “Headmistress McGonagall,” Harry said, looking up, glasses askew, “I see you’ve uncovered our secret gaming room. Are you here to give me detention?” A smile flitted around the edges of his mouth as he struggled to keep a straight face.

    “Certainly not, Professor Potter,” McGonagall answered primly. “Though if you think you are teaching chess you’re sorely mistaken. He’ll have you in three moves.”

    Summary

    Relationships have to start somewhere. Or, once you've jumped into a garbage chute with people you kind of either decide to like them or you don't.

    Basically, Han and Leia from trying-not-to-think-about-her to declarations of love at the least convenient times. (ANH through just after the end of ROTJ)

    Spot-on characterizations and character voices, as well as some a+ relationship-building. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
