    Summary

    This is a series of short essays in which I attempt to answer some questions for the sake of my own curiosity and piece of mind.

    So far, I've rambled on: Mickey/Martha and how it might play out; how to tell Amy's story with agency attached; Rose's importance to Nine and to Ten; whether Martha Jones is technically a "companion," or if she's something more (I like Martha. I didn't use to. If you do not like Martha, you are missing out on some real fun).

    Summary

    littlebastardreviews posted the collected facts from the 2014 UK Editions of Harry Potter: and this fact caught my eye.

    'Only one non-magical person has ever managed to get as far as the Hogwarts Sorting Hat before being exposed as a Squib.'

    But, gosh it just makes me want a story where a squib did make it through. So here's a drabble about a squib with a quick mind and a hand-me-down wand, who refuses to be denied her birthright.

    --

    when the hat drops over her eyes it asks, 'well what do we have here?'

    she’s got a forged hogwarts letter with penmanship that’s perfect down to the ink splatter;

    she’s got a complicated string of owls, only half of them forged, from parents to administration to ministry that’s so complicated her name ended up on the first year roll call anyway.

    she’s got ten arguments, four pleas, and one smothered threat on the tip of her mental tongue for why the house that comes out of this hat’s brim better not be 'squib'

    she’s got a lighter up her sleeve and an eight and a half inch wand in her belt that will never, ever work for her.

    'well,' says the hat, 'better be slytherin then'

    Summary

    He wonders who would have taken the time to program independent reactions of this sophistication. So he asks her. She looks at him and then looks down at her feet, and says it's a good thing his shoes didn't leave a scuff on hers, because she's not sure it would ever come out. So apparently, his autopilot is a complex hard-light simulacrum with high-security topics that are code-designated as strictly off-limit, or his autopilot simply has things she'd prefer not to discuss.

    He wonders at that, too.

    Summary

    When portraits are delivered to the mourning families of the Heroes of the Battle of Hogwarts, some hang them on the wall immediately, some wait a while
    And in some cases, the portraits themselves make them wait
